What is personal data?

Personal data is all information that relates to a specific or identifiable natural person. A data subject is a person whose personal data we process.

Processing includes any processing of personal data, regardless of the means and procedures used, such as querying, comparing, adapting, archiving, storing, reading, disclosing, receiving, recording, collecting, deleting, disclosing, ordering, organizing, storing, modifying, distribution, linking, destruction and other use of personal data.

On what basis do we process personal data?

We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law, in particular the Federal Data Protection Act and the Data Protection Ordinance.

Technical level of personal data security

We take appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure data security appropriate to the risk in question. However, we cannot guarantee absolute data security.

Our website is accessed using transport encryption (SSL/TLS, HTTPS).

Personal data may be subject to surveillance by security agencies in Switzerland, the rest of Europe, the United States of America (USA) and other countries around the world. We cannot influence the appropriate processing of personal data by intelligence agencies, police and other security agencies.

For what purpose do we process data?

We process personal data necessary for the operation of the Site.

We process personal data for as long as it is required for the intended purpose or required by law. Personal data that no longer needs to be processed will be anonymized or deleted.

Is consent required for data processing?

As a rule, we process personal data only with the consent of the person concerned. If and to the extent that processing is permitted for other legal reasons, we may refrain from obtaining consent. For example, we may process personal data without consent to perform a contract, comply with a legal obligation, or protect critical interests.

In this context, we process, in particular, information that the data subject voluntarily transmits to us when contacting us – for example, by post, e-mail, instant messaging, contact form, social networks or telephone – or when registering an account user records. We may store such information, for example, in an address book or through similar tools. If we receive data about other people, the transmitting parties are obliged to protect the data of these people and ensure the accuracy of this personal data.

We also process personal data that we receive from third parties, obtain from publicly available sources, or collect in the course of our activities and activities, if and to the extent that such processing is permitted for legal reasons.

Where do we process personal data?

We generally process personal data in Switzerland. However, we may also export personal data to other countries, provided that the law there provides adequate data protection in accordance with the regulation of the Swiss Federal Council.

We may transfer personal data to countries whose laws do not guarantee adequate data protection, provided that appropriate data protection is guaranteed in another way (for example, through relevant contracts).

In exceptional cases, we may export personal data to countries where there is no adequate or suitable data protection, if special requirements of data protection laws are met (for example, the express consent of the person concerned).

We use specialized third parties to enable us to use the digital infrastructure required in connection with our activities and operations. This includes, for example, hosting and storage services from selected providers.

In particular, we use:

Third Party Services

We use the services of specialized third parties in order to be able to carry out our business and activities in a durable, convenient, safe and reliable way. These services allow us, among other things, to embed features and content on our website.
