Based on Article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution and the federal data protection regulations (Data Protection Act, DSG), every person has the right to protection of their privacy and 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 collaboration with our hosting providers, we strive to protect the databases as best as possible against unauthorized access, loss, misuse or falsification.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating via email) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data from access by third parties is not possible.

By using this website, you agree to the collection, processing and use of data as described below. This website can generally be visited without registration. Data such as pages accessed or names of files accessed, date and time are stored on the server for statistical purposes without this data being directly related to you personally. As far as personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses) is collected on our pages, this is always done, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

Processing of 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 all handling of personal data, regardless of the means and procedures used, in particular the storage, transfer, procurement, deletion, retention, modification, destruction and use of personal data.

We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law. If and to the extent that the EU GDPR is applicable, we also process personal data on the following legal bases in conjunction with Art. 6 (1) GDPR:
lit. a) Processing of personal data with the consent of the data subject.
b) Processing of personal data to fulfill a contract with the data subject and to carry out corresponding pre-contractual measures.
c) Processing of personal data to fulfill a legal obligation to which we are subject under applicable EU law or under the applicable law of a country in which the GDPR applies in whole or in part. 
lit. d) Processing of personal data to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person.
lit. f) Processing of personal data to protect the legitimate interests of us or third parties, unless the fundamental freedoms and rights and interests of the data subject outweigh this. The legitimate interests include, in particular, our commercial 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 data for the period necessary for the relevant purpose or purposes. In the case of longer-term storage obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we restrict processing accordingly.

This site uses cookies. These are small text files that make it possible to store specific user-related information on the user's device while the user is using the website. In particular, cookies make it possible to determine the frequency of use and the number of users of the pages, to analyze behavioral patterns of page use, but also to make our offering more customer-friendly. Cookies remain stored beyond the end of a browser session and can be accessed again when you visit the site again. If you do not want this, you should set your internet browser so that it refuses to accept cookies.

A general objection to the use of cookies for online marketing purposes can be made for a variety of services, especially tracking, via the US site or the EU site http:/ / can be explained. In addition, the storage of cookies can be achieved by deactivating them in the browser settings. Please note that in this case not all functions of this online offer can be used.

With SSL/TLS encryption
This website uses SSL/TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the browser address line changing from «»http://»» to «»https://»» and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Without SSL/TLS encryption
Please note that data transmitted over an open network such as the Internet or an email service without SSL encryption can be viewed by anyone. You can recognize an unencrypted connection by the fact that “http://” appears in the address bar of your browser and no lock symbol is displayed in your browser bar. Information transmitted over the Internet and content received online may be transmitted over third-party networks. We cannot guarantee the confidentiality of any communications or materials transmitted over such open or third-party networks. If you disclose personal information over an open network or third party networks, you should be aware that your information may be lost or potentially accessed by third parties and, as a result, the information may be collected and used without your consent. In many cases, the individual data packets are transmitted encrypted, but not the names of the sender and recipient. Even if the sender and recipient are in the same country, data transfer via such networks often takes place uncontrolled via third countries, i.e. also via countries that do not offer the same level of data protection as your country of domicile. We assume no responsibility for the security of your data when transmitted over the Internet and disclaim any liability for direct or indirect damage. We ask you to use other means of communication if you consider this necessary or useful for security reasons.

Despite extensive technical and organizational security precautions, it is possible that data can be lost or intercepted and/or manipulated by unauthorized persons. Where possible, we take appropriate technical and organizational security measures to prevent this within our system. However, your computer is outside the security area that we control. It is your responsibility as a user to find out about the necessary security precautions and to take appropriate measures. As the operator of the website, we are in no way liable for any damage that you may incur as a result of data loss or manipulation.

Data that you enter in online forms can be passed on to authorized third parties for the purpose of order processing and can be viewed and, if necessary, processed by them.
