This website can be visited without being required to register. As a result of visiting the site, data such as pages accessed or names of files accessed, the date and the time are saved on the server for statistical purposes, without this data making a direct reference to you personally.

Processing personal data
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable person. A data subject is a person about whom personal data is processed. Processing includes any operation involving personal data, regardless of the means and procedures used, particularly the storage, disclosure, procurement, erasure, saving, alteration, destruction and use of personal data.
We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law. Otherwise, if and provided that the EU GDPR applies, we process personal data in accordance with the following legal bases in connection with Article 6 (1) of the GDPR:
- (a) personal data is processed with the data subject’s consent.
- (b) personal data is processed for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party and to take steps prior to entering into a contract.
- (c) personal data is processed to comply with legal obligations to which we are subject pursuant to any applicable laws in the EU or pursuant to any applicable laws in a country in which the GDPR applies either in whole or in part.
- (d) personal data is processed to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person.
- (f) personal data is processed to safeguard our legitimate interests or those of third parties, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject. Legitimate interests particularly refer to our commercial interest in being able to provide our website, information security, to enforce our own legal claims and to comply with Swiss law.
We process personal data for the duration required for the respective purpose or purposes. If there are longer retention requirements due to legal obligations and other obligations which we are subject to, we will limit the processing accordingly.

If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, data that you send to us cannot be read by third parties.
Privacy notice for the contact form
If you send us an enquiry via the contact form, we will save your information from the enquiry form, including any contact details you have provided in it, for the purpose of processing your enquiry and in case there are any follow-up questions. We do not pass this data on without your consent.
Privacy notice for newsletter data
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on this website, we will need your email address and information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the email address provided and that you agree to receiving the newsletter.

Use of Google reCAPTCHA
This website uses the reCAPTCHA service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; ‘Google’). The purpose of the request is to determine whether input is made by a person or using automated machine processing. The request involves sending the IP address and any other data Google needs for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. Your input will be transmitted to Google for this purpose and used by it. However, Google will truncate your IP address within the member states of the European Union or in other signatory states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Full IP addresses are only sent to Google servers in the USA and truncated there in exceptional cases. Google uses this information to evaluate your use of this service on behalf of the operator of this website. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of reCAPTCHA will not be merged with other Google data. Your data may also be transmitted to the USA. There is a European Commission adequacy decision for data transmissions to the USA – the ‘Privacy Shield’. Google participates in the ‘Privacy Shield’ and is subject to its requirements. You consent to your data being processed by clicking on the request. Processing takes place with your consent, on the basis of Article 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR. You can withdraw your consent at any time without this affecting the legality of processing carried out on the basis of consent prior to consent being withdrawn.
