Personal master data (name, address, dates of birth, etc.);
Contact information (cell phone number, email address, etc.);
Online identifiers (e.g. cookie identifier, IP addresses);
Location and traffic data;
Sound and image recording
6.2 Under what conditions do we process your data?
If we are exceptionally unable to comply with these principles, data processing can still be lawful because there is a justification. In particular, the justification is:
The execution of a contract or pre-contractual measures;
Our legitimate interests, unless your interests prevail.
6.3 How can you revoke your consent?
If you have given us consent to process your personal data for specific purposes, we will process your data within the scope of this consent unless we have another justification.
You can revoke your consent at any time by sending an e-mail to the address given in the imprint. Data processing that has already taken place is not affected by this.
6.4 In which cases may we disclose your data to third parties?
We may need to use the services of third parties or affiliated companies and commission them to process your data (so-called processors). Categories of recipients are namely:
Accounting, fiduciary and auditing companies;
Consulting companies (legal advice, taxes, etc.);
IT service providers (web hosting, support, cloud services, website design, etc.);
Payment service providers (only with your prior consent);
Tracking, conversion and advertising service providers (exclusively after your prior consent).
We ensure that data is only shared with your explicit consent, unless this is commissioned data processing. In addition, we ensure that these third parties and our affiliated companies comply with the requirements of data protection and treat your personal data confidentially.
We may also be required to disclose your personal data to public authorities.
b. Disclosure to partners and cooperating companies:
We partly cooperate with different companies and partners who place their offers on our website. It is recognizable for you that it is a third-party offer (marked as “advertising”).
If you make use of such an offer, we transmit your personal data to the corresponding partner or cooperation company (e.g. name, function, communication, etc.) whose offer you wish to take advantage of, provided that you have expressly consented to this beforehand. These partners and cooperation companies are independently responsible for the personal data received. After the data has been transmitted, the data protection regulations of the respective partner apply.
c. Visiting our social media channels:
We have embedded links to our social media channels on our website. This is apparent to you in each case (typically via corresponding icons). If you click on the icons, you will be redirected to our social media channels.
In this case, the social media providers learn that you are accessing their platform from our website. The social media providers can use the data collected in this way for their own purposes. We would like to point out that we have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by the operators.
d. Transfer abroad:
Under certain circumstances, your personal data may be transferred to companies abroad in the course of order processing. These companies are obligated to data protection to the same extent as we are. The transfer may take place worldwide.
If the level of data protection does not correspond to that in Switzerland, we carry out a prior risk assessment and ensure contractually that the same level of protection is guaranteed as in Switzerland (for example, by means of the new standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission or other legally prescribed measures). If our risk assessment is negative, we take additional technical measures to protect your data. You can access the EU Commission’s standard contractual clauses at the following link.
6.5 How long do we keep your data?
We store personal data only for as long as is necessary to fulfil the individual purposes for which the data was collected.
Data that we store when you visit our website is kept for twelve months. An exception is made for analysis and tracking data, which may be kept longer.
We store contract data for longer, as we are obliged to do so by legal regulations. In particular, we must retain business communications, concluded contracts and accounting records for up to 10 years. As far as we no longer need such data from you to perform the services, the data will be blocked and we will only use it for accounting and tax purposes.
6.6 How do we protect your data?
We will keep your information secure and take all reasonable steps to protect your information from loss, access, misuse or alteration.
Our contractual partners and employees who have access to your data are obliged to comply with data protection regulations. In some cases, it will be necessary for us to pass on your inquiries to companies affiliated with us. In these cases, too, your data will be treated confidentially.
Within our website, we use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) procedure in conjunction with the highest encryption level supported by your browser.
6.7 What rights do you have?
a. Right to information:
You can request information about the data we have stored about you at any time. We ask you to send your request for information together with proof of identity to email@example.com.
You also have the right to receive your data in a common file format if we process your data automatically and if you have given your consent for the processing of this data; or you have disclosed data in connection with the conclusion or performance of a contract.
We may restrict or refuse to provide information or data if this conflicts with our legal obligations, our own legitimate interests, public interests or the interests of a third party.
The processing of your request is subject to the statutory processing period of 30 days. However, we may extend this period due to a high volume of requests, for legal or technical reasons, or because we need more detailed information from you. You will be informed of the extension of the deadline in good time, at least in text form.
b. Deletion and correction:
You have the possibility to request the deletion or correction of your data at any time. We can reject the request if legal regulations oblige us to store the data for a longer period of time or unchanged, or if a permissible circumstance conflicts with your request.
Please note that the exercise of your rights may, under certain circumstances, conflict with contractual agreements and have corresponding effects on the execution of the contract (e.g. premature termination of the contract or cost consequences).
c. Legal action:
If you are affected by the processing of personal data, you have the right to enforce your rights in court or to file a report with the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority in Switzerland is the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner: https://www.edoeb.admin.ch.

7.2 Tracking pixels
How do tracking pixels work?
We may use tracking pixels on our website. Tracking pixels are also known 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. We use them for the same purposes as log files – you cannot prevent the data collection.
In some cases, your personal data is processed automatically in order to evaluate certain personal aspects.
Such evaluations are used by us in particular to be able to inform and advise you in a targeted manner about certain services or products of ours. For this purpose, we use evaluation tools, thanks to which we can communicate in a needs-based manner and take appropriate advertising measures, including market and opinion research.

You have the possibility to contact us by e-mail. If you contact us by e-mail, the following data will be processed:

We would like to point out that e-mails can be read or changed unauthorized and unnoticed during transmission. The spam filter can reject e-mails if they are identified as spam by certain characteristics.
How do cookies work?
What information do we receive and how do we use it?
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser on your next visit. This allows us to save certain settings (such as language settings or location information) so that you do not have to re-enter them when you visit the website again.
How can you prevent data collection via cookies?
The cookies are stored on your computer. You therefore have full control over the use of the cookies. You can delete them completely or disable or restrict the transfer by changing the settings in your browser. If cookies for our website are deactivated, it may no longer be possible to use all the functions of the website in full.
7.6 Google Web Fonts
How does Google Web Fonts work?
We use so-called web fonts on our website for the uniform display of fonts, which are provided by Google. When you call up one of our pages, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.
What information do you share with us and how is it used?
The browser you use establishes a connection to Google’s servers. This enables Google to know that our website has been accessed via your IP address. If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.
Why are we allowed to use Google Web Fonts?
Google Web Fonts are used in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. For more information on Google Web Fonts, see the Google Web Fonts FAQs: https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq.
