General note

Based on Article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution and the data protection regulations of the Swiss Confederation (Data Protection Act, DPA), every person has the right to protection of their private sphere as well as protection against misuse of their personal data. The operator of this site takes protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in compliance with the legal data privacy regulations as well as this privacy policy.
In cooperation with our hosting providers, we make every effort to protect the databases as well as possible against unauthorized access, loss, misuse or fraud.
Please note that data transfer in the Internet (e.g. during communication via e-mail) can be vulnerable in terms of security. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
By using this website, you agree with the collection, processing and use of data as described below. This website can be visited without registration. During such visits, data, such as pages called, the names of files called, data and time are saved on the server for statistical purposes, without this data being associated directly with your person. Data related to persons, particularly names, addresses or e-mail addresses are collected on a voluntary basis to the extent possible. Data will not be disseminated to third parties without your consent.

Processing of personal data

Personal data includes all information related to a certain person or person whose identity can be ascertained. An affected person is a person, whose personal data is processed. Processing includes all types of transactions with or handling of personal data, regardless of the means or processes used. This includes particularly archiving, disclosure, procurement, deletion, storage, modification, destruction and use of personal data.
We process personal data in compliance with the Swiss Data Privacy Act. Furthermore we process personal data – to the extent EU-DSGVO is applicable – in compliance with the following legal principles in conjunction with DSGVO Art. 6 Para. 1:
lit. a) Processing of personal data with consent of the affected person.
lit. b) Processing of personal data for fulfilment of a contract with the affected person as well as for performing actions related to concluding a contract.
lit. c) Processing of personal data for fulfilment of a legal obligation, to which we are subject according to any applicable EU law or according to any applicable law of the country in which the DSGVO is applicable in full or in part.
lit. d) Processing of personal data to protect the vital interests of the affected person or another natural person.
lit. f) Processing of personal data to protect our own legitimate interests or those of third parties, when such processing is not outweighed by the basic freedoms and basic rights as well as interests of the affected person. Legitimate interests include particularly our business/economic interests allowing us to provide our website, information security, implementation of our own legal rights and compliance with Swiss law. 
We process personal data for the duration necessary for the purpose or purposes in question. In the case of longer-term storage obligations based on legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we limit processing accordingly.

Privacy policy for SSL/TLS encryption

This website uses SSL/TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as inquires sent to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

Services from third parties

Privacy policy for Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited. If the person responsible for data processing on this website is located outside the European Economic Area or Switzerland, Google Analytics data processing is carried out by Google LLC. Google LLC and Google Ireland Limited are hereinafter referred to as "Google".
We can use the statistics obtained to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. This website also uses Google Analytics for a cross-device analysis of visitor flows, which is carried out using a user ID. If you have a Google user account, you can deactivate the cross-device analysis of your usage in the settings there under "My data", "personal data".
The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code "_anonymizeIp();" in order to guarantee an anonymized collection of IP addresses. As a result, IP addresses are processed in a shortened form, which makes it impossible to identify a person. If the data collected about you contains a personal reference, this is immediately excluded and the personal data is therefore deleted immediately.
Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the Internet. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has subjected itself to the EU-US Privacy Shield,
Google Analytics uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link deactivate Google Analytics.
You can also prevent the use of Google Analytics by clicking on this link: deactivate Google Analytics. This will save a so-called opt-out cookie on your data carrier, which prevents the processing of personal data by Google Analytics. Please note that if you delete all cookies on your end device, these opt-out cookies will also be deleted, i.e. you will have to set the opt-out cookies again if you want to continue to prevent this form of data collection. The opt-out cookies are set per browser and computer/device and must therefore be activated separately for each browser, computer or other device.

Privacy policy for the use of Google Web Fonts

This website uses so-called web fonts, which are provided by Google, for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly. If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font from your computer is used.
More information about Google Web Fonts can be found at and in the Google Privacy Policy:

Note concerning data transfers to the USA (United States of America)

For the sake of completeness, we would like to point out that users based in Switzerland are subject to monitoring measures by US authorities, which generally allow the storage of all personal data from Switzerland - which has been transferred to the USA.
This is done without differentiation, restriction or exception on the basis of the objectives pursued and without any objective criterion that would make it possible to limit the access of the US authorities to the data and their subsequent use to very specific, strictly limited purposes that could justify both access to the data and interference associated with its use. We also draw your attention to the fact that there are no legal remedies available in the USA for data subjects from Switzerland that would allow them to gain access to the data concerning them and to obtain its correction or deletion, or that there is no effective judicial protection against general access rights of US authorities. We explicitly draw the attention of the person concerned to this legal and factual situation in order to make an appropriately informed decision to consent to the use of his or her data.
Users residing in a member state of the EU are advised that the USA does not have a sufficient level of data protection from the perspective of the European Union.
