General information

Based on Article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution and the data protection provisions of the Swiss Federal Government (Data Protection Act, DSG), every person is entitled to the protection of their privacy and to protection against misuse of their personal data. The operators of these sites 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.
In cooperation with our hosting providers, we strive to protect the databases to the extent possible against unauthorised access, loss, misuse or forgery.
Please note that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) may have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
By using this website, you consent to the collection, processing and use of data in accordance with the following description. This website can generally be visited without registration. In the process, data such as pages accessed or names of the retrieved file, date and time are stored on the server for statistical purposes without this data being directly related to you. Personal data, in particular name, address or e-mail address, is collected on a voluntary basis as far as possible. The data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.

Processing of personal data

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable person. A data subject is a person through whom personal data is processed. Processing includes all 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, in particular the Data Protection Act (DSG). https://www.admin.ch/opc/de/classified-compilation/19920153/index.html In all other respects, we process personal data in accordance with the following legal bases in connexion with Article 6(1) GDPR:

  • Consent (Art. 6(1) sentence 1 lit. a. GDPR) – The data subject has given his consent to the processing of personal data concerning him for a specific purpose or several specific purposes.
  • Performance and pre-contractual requests (Art. 6(1) sentence 1 lit. b. GDPR) – The processing is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract to which the data subject is a party or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, which take place at the request of the data subject.
  • Legal obligation (Art. 6(1) sentence 1 lit. c. GDPR) – The processing is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which the controller is subject.
  • Protection of vital interests (Art. 6(1) sentence 1 lit. d. GDPR) – The processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person.
  • Legitimate interests (Art. 6(1) sentence 1 lit. f. GDPR) – The processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of the controller or a third party, unless the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, which require the protection of personal data, prevail.
  • Application procedure as a pre-contractual or contractual relationship (Art. 9(2)(b) GDPR) – Insofar as special categories of personal data within the meaning of Article 9(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 can exercise the rights arising from labour law and the law of social security and social protection and/or fulfil their obligations in this regard, their processing takes place according to Art. 9(2)(b) GDPR, in the case of the protection of vital interests of applicants or other persons pursuant to point (c) of Article 9(2) GDPR or for the purposes of preventive health care or occupational medicine, for the assessment of the employee’s ability to work, for medical diagnosis, care or treatment in the health or social sector or for the administration of systems and services in the health or social sector in accordance with point (h) of Article 9(2) GDPR. In the case of notification of special categories of data based on voluntary consent, their processing takes place on the basis of Art. 9(2) 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 shall restrict processing accordingly.

Relevant legal bases

In accordance with Art. 13 GDPR, we will inform you of the legal basis for our data processing activities. Unless the legal basis is stated in the privacy policy, the following applies: The legal basis for obtaining consent is Art. 6(1)(a) and Article 7 GDPR, the legal basis for the processing for the fulfilment of our services and the implementation of contractual measures as well as the response to enquiries is Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR, the legal basis for processing to fulfil our legal obligations is Article 6(1)(c) GDPR, and the legal basis for the processing to protect our legitimate interests is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6(1)(d) GDPR as the legal basis.

Safety Precautions

We take appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk in accordance with the legal requirements, taking into account the state of the art, the implementation costs and the nature, scope, circumstances and purposes of the processing as well as the different probability of occurrence and the extent of the threat to the rights and freedoms of natural persons.
Measures include, in particular, the safeguarding of the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by controlling physical and electronic access to the data as well as access to, input, forwarding, securing availability and their separation. We have also set up procedures to ensure the exercise of data subject rights, the erasure of data and reactions to the threat to data. Furthermore, we take the protection of personal data into account during the development or selection of hardware, software and procedures in accordance with the principle of data protection, through technical design and by means of data protection-friendly default settings.

Transfer of personal data

As part of our processing of personal data, the data may be transferred to other bodies, companies, legally independent organisational units or persons or may be disclosed to them. Recipients of this data may include, for example, service providers commissioned with IT tasks or providers of services and content that are integrated into a website. In such a case, we comply with the legal requirements and in particular conclude corresponding contracts or agreements with the recipients of your data that serve to protect your data.

Processing of data in third countries

If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside Switzerland, the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)) or the processing takes place in the context of the use of third-party services or the disclosure or transfer of data to other persons, bodies or companies, this shall only take place in accordance with the legal requirements.
We are a Swiss company and your personal data is generally processed and stored on servers in Switzerland. However, IT is possible that our service providers, suppliers, other auxiliary persons (for example, when setting up, maintaining and maintaining our IT systems) or one of our Group companies abroad may have access to certain personal data. We contractually oblige all such persons to comply with all applicable data protection provisions by means of an order data agreement, which also contains the standard contractual clauses of the European Commission, if necessary, as well as confidentiality agreements. You can request a list of the categories of our service providers, suppliers, other auxiliary persons and third parties at any time.
Subject to express consent or contractual or legally required transfer, we only process the data in third countries with a recognised level of data protection, contractual obligation by means of so-called EU Commission standard protection clauses, in the event of certifications or binding internal data protection regulations (Art. 44 to 49 GDPR, EU Commission information page: ec.europa.eu ).

The following types of cookies and functions are distinguished:

  • Temporary cookies (also called session or session cookies): Temporary cookies are deleted at the latest after a user has left an online offer and closed their browser.
  • Persistent cookies: Permanent cookies remain stored even after closing the browser. For example, the login status can be saved or preferred content can be displayed directly when 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.

If this is the case and you consent to the use of cookies, the legal basis for processing your data is the consent provided. Otherwise, the data processed using cookies is processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (e.g. in the commercial operation of our online offering and its improvement) or, if the use of cookies is necessary to fulfil our contractual obligations.
