General Notice

Based on Article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution and the data protection provisions of the Confederation (Data Protection Act, DPA), every person is entitled to protection of their privacy and protection against misuse of their personal data. The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this privacy policy.

In cooperation with our hosting providers, we strive to protect the databases as much as possible from unauthorized access, loss, misuse, or falsification.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g., when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

By using this website, you agree to the collection, processing, and use of data according to the following description. This website can be visited without registration. During such visits, data such as pages accessed or names of the retrieved file, date, and time are stored on the server for statistical purposes, without these data being directly related to your person. Personal data, particularly name, address, or email address, is collected as far as possible on a voluntary basis. Without your consent, no data will be passed on to third parties.

 

Processing of Personal Data

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable person. An affected person is someone whose personal data is processed. Processing includes any handling of personal data, regardless of the means and procedures used, in particular the storage, disclosure, procurement, deletion, storage, modification, destruction, and use of personal data.

We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law. Furthermore, we process – as far and insofar as the EU GDPR is applicable – personal data according to the following legal bases in connection with Art. 6 para. 1 GDPR:

  • Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a. GDPR) – The data subject has given consent to the processing of their personal data for one or more specific purposes.
  • Contract performance and pre-contractual inquiries (Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. b. GDPR) – 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.
  • Legal obligation (Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. c. GDPR) – Processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject.
  • Protection of vital interests (Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. d. GDPR) – Processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person.
  • Legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f. GDPR) – Processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller 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.
  • Job application process as a pre-contractual or contractual relationship (Art. 9 para. 2 lit. b GDPR) – Where special categories of personal data in the sense of Art. 9 para. 1 GDPR (e.g., health data, such as disability status or ethnic origin) are requested from applicants so that the controller or the data subject may carry out the obligations and exercising specific rights in the field of employment and social security and social protection law, processing shall be based on Art. 9 para. 2 lit. b GDPR, in the case of protection of vital interests of applicants or other persons according to Art. 9 para. 2 lit. c GDPR, or for purposes of preventive or occupational medicine, for the assessment of the working capacity of the employee, medical diagnosis, provision of health or social care or treatment or management of health or social care systems and services according to Art. 9 para. 2 lit. h GDPR. If special categories of data are communicated based on voluntary consent, their processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR.

We process personal data for the duration necessary for the respective purpose or purposes. In the event of longer retention obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we restrict processing accordingly.

 

Relevant Legal Bases

In accordance with Art. 13 GDPR, we inform you about the legal bases of our data processing. If the legal basis is not mentioned in the privacy policy, the following applies: The legal basis for obtaining consents is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a and Art. 7 GDPR, the legal basis for processing for the performance of our services and execution of contractual measures as well as responding to inquiries is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, the legal basis for processing to fulfill our legal obligations is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR, and the legal basis for processing to protect our legitimate interests is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. In the case that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.

 

Security Measures

We take appropriate technical and organizational measures in accordance with the legal requirements, taking into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation, and the nature, scope, circumstances, and purposes of processing as well as the different likelihood and severity of the risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, in order to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk.

Measures include, in particular, securing the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data by controlling physical and electronic access to the data as well as access, input, transmission, securing availability, and its separation. Furthermore, we have established procedures to ensure the exercise of data subjects’ rights, deletion of data, and reaction to data risks. Moreover, we consider the protection of personal data already in the development or selection of hardware, software, and procedures, according to the principle of data protection, through technology design and through data protection-friendly default settings.

 

Transmission of Personal Data

In the course of our processing of personal data, it may happen that the data is transferred to other places, companies, legally independent organizational units or persons or that it is disclosed to them. Recipients of this data may include, for example, service providers entrusted with IT tasks or providers of services and content that are integrated into a website. In such case, we comply with the legal requirements and in particular conclude corresponding contracts or agreements, which serve the protection of your data, with the recipients of your data.

 

Data Processing in Third Countries

If we process data in a third country (i.e., outside the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA)) or if the processing takes place in the context of the use of third-party services or disclosure or transmission of data to other persons, bodies or companies, this is done only in accordance with the legal requirements.

Subject to express consent or contractually or legally required transmission, we process or let the data be processed only in third countries with a recognized level of data protection, contractual obligation through so-called standard protection clauses of the EU Commission, in the presence of certifications or binding internal data protection rules (Art. 44 to 49 GDPR, information page of the EU Commission: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection_de).

 

Privacy Policy for Cookies

This website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that contain data from visited websites or domains and are saved by a browser on the user’s computer. A cookie primarily serves to store information about a user during or after their visit within an online offer. Stored information may include, for example, language settings on a website, login status, a shopping cart, or the location where a video was watched. The term cookies also includes other technologies that perform the same functions as cookies (e.g., when user information is stored using pseudonymous online identifiers, also known as “user IDs”)

The following types of cookies and functions are distinguished:

  • Temporary cookies (also: session or session cookies): Temporary cookies are deleted at the latest after a user has left an online offer and closed their browser.
  • Permanent cookies: Permanent cookies remain stored even after the browser has been closed. For example, the login status can be saved or preferred content can be shown directly if the user visits a website again. Likewise, the interests of users used for reach measurement or marketing purposes can be stored in such a cookie.
  • First-party cookies: First-party cookies are set by us ourselves.
  • Third-party cookies ( also: third-party cookies): Third-party cookies are mainly used by advertisers (so-called third parties) to process user information.
  • Necessary (also: essential or absolutely necessary) cookies: Cookies can be necessary for the operation of a website (e.g., to save logins or other user inputs or for security reasons).
  • Statistics, marketing, and personalization cookies: Furthermore, cookies are typically used in the context of reach measurement and when a user’s interests or behavior (e.g., viewing certain content, using functions, etc.) are stored on individual websites in a user profile. Such profiles are used to show users e.g., content that corresponds to their potential interests. This process is also referred to as “tracking”, i.e., tracking the potential interests of users. To the extent that we use cookies or “tracking” technologies, we will inform you separately in our privacy policy or when obtaining consent.

Legal basis notes: The legal basis on which we process your personal data using cookies depends on whether we ask you for consent. If this is the case and you consent to the use of cookies, the legal basis for processing your data is the declared consent. Otherwise, the data processed by cookies are based on our legitimate interests (e.g., in a business operation of our online offer and its improvement) or if the use of cookies is necessary to fulfill our contractual obligations.

Storage duration: Unless we provide you with explicit information about the storage duration of permanent cookies (e.g., within the framework of a so-called cookie opt-in), please assume that the storage duration can be up to two years.

General information on revocation and objection (opt-out): Depending on whether the processing is based on consent or legal permission, you have the option at any time to revoke a given consent or to object to the processing of your data by cookie technologies (collectively referred to as “opt-out”). You can initially declare your objection by means of the settings of your browser, e.g., by disabling the use of cookies (which may also impair the functionality of our online offer). An objection to the use of cookies for online marketing purposes can also be made by means of a variety of services, especially in the case of tracking, via the websites https://optout.aboutads.info and https://www.youronlinechoices.com/. In addition, you can receive further objection notices as part of the information on the service providers and cookies used.

Processing of cookie data based on consent: We use a cookie consent management procedure, in which the consents of the users in the use of cookies, or the processing and providers mentioned in the cookie consent management procedure, are obtained and managed and can be revoked by the users. The declaration of consent is stored in order to not have to repeat its query and to be able to prove the consent according to the legal obligation. The storage can be server-side and/or in a cookie (so-called opt-in cookie, or with comparable technologies), in order to be able to assign the consent to a user, or their device. Subject to individual information about the providers of cookie management services, the following applies: The duration of the storage of consent can be up to two years. Here, a pseudonymous user identifier is formed and stored with the time of consent, information on the scope of the consent (e.g., which categories of cookies and/or service providers), as well as the browser, system, and used end device.

  • Processed data types: Usage data (e.g., visited websites, interest in content, access times), Meta-/communication data (e.g., device information, IP addresses).
  • Affected persons: Users (e.g., website visitors, users of online services).
  • Legal bases: Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a. GDPR), Legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f. GDPR).

Privacy Policy for SSL-/TLS Encryption

This website uses SSL/TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

When SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

 

Data Transmission Security (without SSL)

Please note that data transmitted via an open network such as the internet or an email service without SSL encryption is visible to everyone . An unencrypted connection can be recognized by the fact that the address line of the browser displays “http://” and no lock symbol is shown in your browser line. Information transmitted over the internet and content received online may be transmitted by third-party networks. We cannot guarantee the confidentiality of communications or documents transmitted via such open or third-party networks.

If you disclose personal information through an open network or third-party networks, you should be aware of the fact that your data may be lost or that third parties may potentially access this information and consequently collect and use the data without your consent. In many cases, the individual data packets are transmitted encrypted, but not the names of the sender and the recipient. Even if the sender and the recipient live in the same country, data transmission via such networks frequently occurs without controls also through third countries, i.e., also through countries that do not offer the same level of data protection as your domicile country. We do not assume any responsibility for the security of your data during transmission via the internet and reject any liability for indirect or direct losses. We ask you to use other means of communication if you deem it necessary or reasonable for security reasons.

Despite extensive technical and organizational security measures, data may be lost or intercepted and/or manipulated by unauthorized persons. As far as possible, we take appropriate technical and organizational security measures to prevent this within our system. However, your computer is located outside the security area controlled by us. It is your responsibility as the user to inform yourself about the necessary security precautions and to take appropriate measures in this regard. As the website operator, we are not liable for any damages that may arise for you from data loss or manipulation.

Data which you provide in online forms may be passed on to third parties commissioned and viewed and, if applicable, processed by them.

 

Privacy Policy for Server Log Files

The provider of this website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Used operating system
  • Referrer URL
  • Hostname of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request

This data is not assignable to specific persons. A merging of this data with other data sources is not carried out. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of specific indications for illegal use.

 

Third-Party Services

This website may use Google Maps for embedding maps, Google Invisible reCAPTCHA for protection against bots and spam, and YouTube for embedding videos.

These services of the American Google LLC use cookies and as a result, data may be transferred to Google in the USA, although we assume that in this context there is no personal tracking simply by using our website.

Google has committed to ensuring adequate data protection in accordance with the US-European and US-Swiss Privacy Shield.

More information can be found in Google’s privacy policy.

 

Privacy Policy for Contact Forms

If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

 

Privacy Policy for Newsletter Data

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on this website, we require an email address from you, as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified email address and that you agree to receive the newsletter. No additional data is collected or is only collected on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.

The consent given for storing the data, the email address, and their use for sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time, for example through the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter.

 

Use of Google Maps

This website uses the services of Google Maps. This allows us to display interactive maps directly on the website and enables you to use the map function conveniently. By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding subpage of our website. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account that you are logged in with or whether no user account exists. If you are logged into Google, your data will be directly associated with your account. If you do not wish to be associated with your profile on Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for purposes of advertising, market research, and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide demand-oriented advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must approach Google to exercise this right. Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by Google can be found along with further information on your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy at: www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

 

Google Ads

This website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you have reached our website via an advertisement placed by Google, Google Ads will set a cookie on your computer. The cookie for conversion tracking is set when a user clicks on an advertisement placed by Google. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. Thus, cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of Ads customers. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Ads customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users.

If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can opt-out of this by easily disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie via your internet browser under user settings. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. Conversion cookies are stored based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize both its website and its advertising.

Please note that you must not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not want measurement data to be recorded. If you have deleted all your cookies in the browser, you must set the respective opt-out cookie again.
