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 data protection declaration.
Together with our hosting providers, we strive to protect the databases as well as possible against external access, loss, misuse or counterfeiting.
We point out that data transmission over the Internet (eg when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect the data against access by third parties.
By using this website, you agree to the collection, processing and use of data as described below. This website can generally be visited without registration. Data such as the pages viewed or the name of the file viewed, date and time are stored on the server for statistical purposes without this data being directly linked to you. Personal data, in particular name, address or e-mail address, is collected as far as possible on a voluntary basis. Without your consent, the data will not be passed on to third parties.
Processing of personal data
Personal data is any information that relates to a specific or identifiable person. A data subject is a person who is used to process personal data. Processing includes any manipulation of personal data, regardless of the means and procedures used, in particular the storage, disclosure, obtaining, deletion, retention, modification, destruction and use of personal data.
We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law. Furthermore, we process – to the extent and insofar as the EU GDPR is applicable – personal data in accordance with the following legal bases in connection with Art. 6 Para. 1 GDPR:
- a) Processing of personal data with the consent of the data subject.
- b) Processing of personal data to perform a contract with the data subject and to carry out the corresponding pre-contractual measures.
- c) Processing of personal data to fulfill a legal obligation to which we are subject under any applicable law of the EU or under any applicable law of a country in which the GDPR is fully or partially applicable.
- d) Processing of personal data in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person.
- f) Processing of personal data in order to protect our legitimate interests or those of third parties, provided that the fundamental rights and freedoms as well as the interests of the data subject do not prevail. Legitimate interests include our business interest in being able to provide our website, information security, the enforcement of our own legal claims and compliance with Swiss law.
We process personal data for the duration necessary for the respective purpose(s). In the event of longer-term storage obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we limit the processing accordingly.
Data protection declaration for SSL / TLS encryption
This website uses SSL / TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as inquiries that you send to us as the website operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the browser address line changes from “http: //” to “https: //” and by the padlock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Please note that data that is transmitted over an open network such as the Internet or an email service without SSL encryption can be viewed by anyone. You can recognize an unencrypted connection by the fact that the browser address line displays “http: //” and no lock symbol is displayed in the browser line. Information transmitted over the Internet and content received online may be transmitted via third-party networks. We cannot guarantee the confidentiality of messages or documents that are transmitted via these open networks or third-party networks.
If you disclose personal information through an open network or a third-party network, you should be aware that your data may be lost or third parties may access this information and therefore collect and use this data without your consent. In many cases, the individual data packets are transmitted encrypted, but not the names of the sender and recipient. Even if the sender and the recipient live in the same country, the transfer of data via these networks often and unchecked also takes place via third countries, i.e. also to countries which do not offer the same level of data protection as your home country. We N’ assume no responsibility for the security of your data during transmission over the Internet and accept no liability for indirect or direct losses. We ask that you 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 from happening in our system. However, your computer is outside the security zone that we can control. It is your responsibility as a user to inform yourself about the necessary security measures and to take appropriate measures in this regard.
