In cooperation with our hosting providers, we make every effort to protect our databases from any unauthorised access, loss, misuse or alteration.

Data such as pages visited or the name of files, along with the date and time accessed, are stored on the server for statistical purposes, but this data is not directly linked to you. Personal information, such as your name, address or email address, is collected voluntarily wherever possible. Your data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.

Scope of application

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable person. A data subject is a person whose personal data is processed. Processing includes any operation performed on personal data, regardless of the means and procedures used, including storage, disclosure, collection, erasure, alteration, destruction and use.

We process personal data in accordance with the Swiss Data Protection Act. Where applicable, we also process personal data in accordance with the following legal principles in connection with Art. 6 para. 1 of the General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union (EU-GDPR):

  • a) the data subject has given consent to the processing of his or her personal data for one or more specific purposes.
  • b) the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract.
  • c) processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject, if any, under applicable European Union regulations or the law of a state in which the GDPR is applicable in whole or in part.
  • d) processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person.
  • e) processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Legitimate interests include our business interests in operating our website and providing our services, information security, the enforcement of our own rights and compliance with Swiss law.

We keep personal data for as long as is necessary. If we need to keep your data long term to comply with our legal obligations, or for other purposes, we will limit the use of your data as much as possible.
