We point out if there are other persons responsible for the processing of personal data in individual cases.
2 Terms and legal basis
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 handling of personal data, regardless of the means and procedures used, in particular the storage, disclosure, procurement, collection, deletion, storage, modification, destruction and use of personal data.
2.2 Legal basis
We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law, in particular the Federal Data Protection Act (FADP) and the Ordinance to the Federal Data Protection Act (FADP).
3. type, scope and purpose
We process the personal data that is required to carry out our activities and operations in a permanent, user-friendly, secure and reliable manner. Such personal data may fall in particular into the categories of inventory and contact data, browser and device data, content data, meta or marginal data and usage data, location data, sales data and contract and payment data.
We process personal data for the duration that is required for the respective purpose(s) or by law. Personal data whose processing is no longer required is anonymized or deleted. We may have personal data processed by third parties. We may process personal data together with third parties or transfer it to third parties. Such third parties are, in particular, specialized providers whose services we use. We also guarantee data protection for such third parties.
As a matter of principle, we process personal data only with the consent of the data subject, unless the processing is permitted for other legal reasons, for example, for the performance of a contract with the data subject and for corresponding pre-contractual measures, to protect our overriding legitimate interests, because the processing is evident from the circumstances or after prior information.
In this context, we process in particular information that a data subject voluntarily and personally provides to us when contacting us - for example, by letter, e-mail, instant messaging, contact form, social media or telephone - or when registering for a user account. We may store such information, for example, in an address book or with comparable tools. If you transmit personal data to us via third parties, you are obligated to ensure data protection vis-à-vis such third parties as well as to ensure the accuracy of such 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 operations, if and to the extent that such processing is permitted for legal reasons.
4 Personal data abroad
We process personal data in Switzerland. However, we may also disclose or export personal data to other countries, in particular in order to process it or have it processed there. We may disclose personal data to all states and territories on Earth as well as elsewhere in the universe, provided that the law there guarantees adequate data protection in the opinion of the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) or in accordance with a decision of the Swiss Federal Council.
We may disclose personal data to countries whose laws do not ensure adequate data protection, provided that adequate data protection is ensured for other reasons, for example, through appropriate contractual agreements, on the basis of standard data protection clauses or with other suitable safeguards. By way of exception, we may export personal data to countries without adequate or appropriate data protection if the special data protection requirements are met, for example the express consent of the data subjects or a direct connection with the conclusion or performance of a contract. We will be happy to provide data subjects with information about any guarantees or provide a copy of any guarantees upon request.
5. rights of data subjects Data
subjects whose personal data we process have the rights under Swiss data protection law. These include the right to information as well as the right to correction, deletion or blocking of the processed personal data. Data subjects whose personal data we process have a right of appeal to a competent supervisory authority. The supervisory authority for data protection in Switzerland is the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC).
6. data security
We take appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure data security appropriate to the respective risk. Unfortunately, however, we cannot guarantee absolute data security. Access to our website is via transport encryption (SSL / TLS, in particular with the Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure, abbreviated HTTPS). Most browsers mark transport encryption with a padlock in the address bar.
Our digital communications - like all digital communications in principle - are subject to mass surveillance without cause and without suspicion, as well as other surveillance by security authorities in Switzerland, the rest of Europe, the United States of America (USA) and other countries. We cannot directly influence the corresponding processing of personal data by secret services, police agencies and other security authorities.
7 Use of the Website
Cookies can be stored temporarily as "session cookies" or for a certain period of time as so-called permanent cookies when you visit your browser. "Session cookies" are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Permanent cookies have a specific storage period. In particular, cookies allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit our website and thus, for example, to measure the reach of our website. However, permanent cookies can also be used for online marketing, for example.
For cookies used for performance and reach measurement or for advertising, a general objection ("opt-out") is possible for numerous services via AdChoices (Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada), the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI), YourAd-Choices (Digital Advertising Alliance) or Your Online Choices (European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance, EDAA).
7.2 Server log files
We may collect the following information for each access to our website, provided that this information is transmitted by your browser to our server infrastructure or can be determined by our web server: Date and time including time zone, Internet Protocol (IP) address, access status (HTTP status code), operating system including user interface and version, browser including language and version, individual sub-page of our website accessed including amount of data transferred, website last accessed in the same browser window (referer or referrer).
We store such information, which may also constitute personal data, in server log files. The information is necessary to provide our website permanently, user-friendly and reliably, as well as to ensure data security and thus in particular the protection of personal data - also by third parties or with the help of third parties.
7.3 Tracking pixels
We may use tracking pixels on our website. Tracking pixels are also referred to as web beacons. Tracking pixels - also from third parties whose services we use - are small, usually invisible images that are automatically retrieved when you visit our website. Counting pixels can be used to collect the same information as server log files.
8. social media
We are present on social media platforms and other online platforms in order to communicate with interested persons and to provide information about our activities and operations. In connection with such platforms, personal data may also be processed outside of Switzerland.
9. third party services
We use third party services to perform our activities and operations in a durable, user-friendly, secure and reliable manner.
Such services may also be used to embed content on our website. Such services require your Internet Protocol (IP) address, otherwise the corresponding content cannot be transmitted.
For their own security, statistical and technical purposes, third parties whose services we use may process data related to our activities and operations in an aggregated, anonymized or pseudonymized manner. This is, for example, performance or usage data.

10. success and reach measurement
We use services and programs to determine how our online offering is used. In this context, we can, for example, measure the success and reach of our activities and operations as well as the effect of third-party links to our website. However, we can also, for example, test and compare how different versions of our online offering or parts of our online offering are used ("A/B test" method). Based on the results of the performance and reach measurement, we can in particular correct errors, strengthen popular content or make improvements to our online offering.
When using services and programs for performance and reach measurement, the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of individual users must be stored. IP addresses are generally shortened ("IP masking") in order to follow the principle of data economy through the corresponding pseudonymization and thus improve user data protection.
When using services and programs for performance and reach measurement, cookies may be used and user profiles may be created. User profiles include, for example, the pages visited or content viewed on our website, information on the size of the screen or browser window and the - at least approximate - location. As a matter of principle, user profiles are created exclusively on a pseudonymous basis. We do not use user profiles to identify individual users. Individual services of third parties, to which users are logged in, may be able to assign the use of our online offer to the user account or user profile at the respective service.
We use in particular:
- Google Analytics: performance and reach measurement; Google Analytics-specific data protection information: measurement also across different browsers and devices (cross-device tracking) as well as with pseudonymized Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, which are only transmitted in full to Google in the USA as an exception, "Data protection", "Browser add-on to deactivate Google Analytics".
