The owners of this website 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 endeavor to protect the databases as far as possible against unauthorized access, loss, misuse or counterfeiting.

By using this website, you consent to the collection, processing and use of data as described below. This website can be visited without registration. Data such as pages accessed or names of retrieved files, date and time of accession, are stored on the server for statistical purposes, without reference to the accessing individual. Personal data, in particular name, address or e-mail address are 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. An affected person is a person whose personal information is processed. Processing includes all handling of personal information, regardless of the means and procedures used, including, but not limited to, storing, posting, obtaining, deleting, storing, modifying, destroying, and using personal data. We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection laws. Moreover, insofar as the EU GDPR is applicable, we process personal data in accordance with the following legal basis in connection with Art. 6 (1) GDPR:

  • lit. a) Processing of personal data with consent of the affected person.
  • lit. b) processing of personal data in order to fulfill a contract with the affected person and to implement corresponding pre-contractual measures.
  • lit. c) Processing of personal data in order to fulfill a legal obligation which we are subject to in accordance with any applicable law of the EU or in accordance with any applicable law of a country in which the GDPR is fully or partially applicable.
  • lit. d) Processing of personal data to protect the vital interests of the affected person or another natural person.
  • lit. f) Processing of personal data in order to safeguard the legitimate interests of us or third parties, unless the fundamental freedoms and fundamental rights and interests of the affected person prevail. Justifiable interests include, in particular, 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 information for the duration necessary for the purpose(s). For longer-term storage obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we restrict the processing accordingly.

Privacy Policy for Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. To disable Google Analytics, Google provides a browser plug-in at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. Google Analytics uses cookies. These are small text files that make it possible to store user-specific information on the user’s device. These allow an analysis of the use of our website offer by Google. The information collected by the cookie about the use of our pages (including your IP address) is usually transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Please note that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code “gat._anonymizeIp ();” in order to ensure an anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP-Masking). If the anonymization is active, Google truncates IP addresses within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area, and therefore no identification of your identity is possible. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Google complies with the privacy policy of the Privacy Shield Agreement and is registered with the US Department of Commerce’s Privacy Shield Program, and uses the information we collect to evaluate the use of our Web sites, to report on them, and to provide other related services to us.

Privacy Policy for the use of Google Web Fonts

This website uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for uniform presentation of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to correctly display texts and fonts. If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font will be used by your computer. More information about Google Web Fonts can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s Privacy Policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Privacy Policy for Vimeo

Integrated on this website are plugins of the video portal Vimeo of Vimeo, LLC, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA. Each time you visit a page that offers one or more Vimeo video clips, a direct connection is established between your browser and a Vimeo server in the United States. Concurrently, information about your visit and your IP address is stored. Through interactions with the Vimeo plugins (for example, clicking the Start button), this information is also transmitted to Vimeo and stored there. The privacy policy for Vimeo with more detailed information on the collection and use of your data by Vimeo can be found in the privacy policy of Vimeo.
If you have a Vimeo user account and do not want Vimeo to collect information about you from this website and link it to your member data stored with Vimeo, you must log out of Vimeo before visiting this website.
In addition, Vimeo starts the Tracker Google Analytics via an iframe, in which the video is played. This is a separate tracking of Vimeo, to which we have no access. You can stop Google Analytics tracking by using the opt-out tools that Google offers for some Internet browsers. You may also prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by Google Analytics and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

Notice concerning data transfer to the USA (United States of America)

For the sake of completeness, we would like to point out that there are monitoring measures by US authorities for users domiciled in Switzerland, which generally allow the storage of all personal data from Switzerland, which were transmitted to the USA.

This is done without any differentiation, restriction or exemption on the basis of the objectives pursued and without an objective criterion that would limit the US authorities’ access to the data and its subsequent use to very specific, strictly limited purposes, which would justify the interventions related to the access to these data and their use. Furthermore, we would like to point out that there are no legal remedies in the USA for affected persons from Switzerland that would allow access to the data concerning them and to obtain their correction or deletion. There is no effective judicial protection against general access rights of US authorities. We explicitly inform the affected persons of this legal and factual situation in order to make an informed decision to consent to the use of their data.

For users residing in EU Member States, we point out that, from the European Union’s perspective, the US does not have sufficient data protection levels.
