Phone: +41 44 751 8444
In cooperation with our hosting providers, we make every effort to protect the databases as well as possible against unauthorized access, loss, misuse, or falsification.
We point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g., communication by e-mail) security gaps. Complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
Using this website, you consent to collecting, processing, and using data as described below. This website can generally be visited without registration. In the process, data such as pages called up or the name of the file called up, date, and time are stored on the server for statistical purposes without this data being directly related to your person. Personal data, particularly the name, address, or e-mail address, are voluntarily collected as far as possible. Without your consent, the data will not be passed on to third parties.
Processing of personal data
Personal data is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable person. A data subject is a person about whom personal data is processed. Processing includes handling personal data, regardless of the means and procedures used, particularly the storage, disclosure, acquisition, deletion, storage, modification, destruction, and personal data use.
We process personal data by Swiss data protection law. Also, we process personal data - to the extent and insofar as the EU GDPR is applicable - by the following legal bases in connection with Art. 6 (1) GDPR:
- lit. a) processing of personal data with the consent of the data subject.
- lit. b) processing personal data for the fulfillment of a contract with the data subject and the implementation of corresponding pre-contractual measures.
- lit. c) processing personal data to comply with a legal obligation to which we are subject under any applicable law of the EU or under any applicable law of a country where the GDPR applies in whole or part.
- lit. d) processing personal data to protect the data subject's vital interests or another natural person.
- lit. f) Processing personal data to safeguard third parties' legitimate interests or of us unless the fundamental freedoms and rights and interests of the data subject override these. Legitimate interests are, in particular, our business interest in providing our website, information security, the enforcement of our own legal claims, and compliance with Swiss law.
We process personal data for the duration required for the individual purpose or purposes. In the case of longer-term retention obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we restrict processing accordingly.
This website uses SSL/TLS encryption for security reasons. It protects 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 fact that the browser's address line changes from "http://" to "://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, third parties cannot read the data you transmit to us.
This website's provider automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- Browser type and version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- The hostname of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
This data cannot be assigned to specific persons. A combination of this data with other data sources is not made. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of specific indications of illegal use.
This website may use Google Maps for embedding maps, Google Invisible reCAPTCHA for protection against bots and spam, and YouTube for embedding videos.
These services of the American Google LLC use, among other things, cookies and, as a result, data is transferred to Google in the USA. However, we assume that no personal tracking takes place in this context solely through the use of our website.
Google has committed to ensuring adequate data protection under the U.S.-European and U.S.-Swiss Privacy Shields.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your data from the inquiry form, including the contact data you provided there, will be stored by us to process the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

Right to information
Any person with personal data affected by the processing has the right to receive information about the personal data stored about him or her and a copy of this information from the operator of this website free of charge at any time. Furthermore, information may be provided about the following information, if applicable:
- the processing purposes
- the categories of personal data that are processed
- the recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed
- if possible, the planned duration for which the personal data will be stored or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining this duration

If you would like to exercise this right to information, you can contact our data protection officer at any time.
Right to rectification
Every person affected by personal data processing has the right to demand that inaccurate personal data concerning him or her be corrected without delay. Furthermore, the data subject has the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data - also using a supplementary declaration - taking into account the processing purposes.
If you wish to exercise this right of correction, you can contact our data protection officer at any time.
Right to erasure (Right to be forgotten)
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right to obtain from the controller of this website the immediate erasure of personal data concerning him or her, where one of the following reasons applies and insofar as the processing is not necessary:
- The personal data were collected or otherwise processed for purposes for which they are no longer necessary.
- The data subject withdraws the consent on which the processing was based. There is no other legal basis for the processing.
- The data subject objects to the processing on grounds relating to his or her particular situation. There are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing or the data subject objects to the processing in direct marketing and related profiling.
- The personal data have been processed unlawfully.
- The deletion of the personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
- The personal data was collected about information society services offered, made directly to a child.
Suppose one of the above reasons applies and you wish to arrange for the deletion of personal data stored by the operator of this website. In that case, you can contact our data protection officer at any time. The data protection officer of this website will arrange for the deletion request to be complied with immediately.
Right to restriction of processing
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right to obtain from the controller of this website the restriction of the processing if one of the following conditions is met:
- The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject for a period, enabling the controller to verify personal data accuracy.
- The processing is unlawful if the data subject objects to the erasure of the personal data and requests instead of restricting personal data.
- The controller no longer needs the personal data for processing purposes, but the data subject requires it for the assertion, exercise, or defense of legal claims.
- The data subject has objected to the processing on grounds relating to his or her particular situation. It is not yet clear whether the controller's legitimate interests override those of the data subject.
Suppose one of the above conditions is met. In that case, you can request the restriction of personal data stored by the operator of this website at any time by contacting our data protection officer. The data protection officer of this website will arrange the restriction of the processing.
Right to data portability
Every person affected by personal data processing has the right to receive the personal data concerning him or her in a structured, standard, and machine-readable format. He or she also has the right to have this data transferred to another controller if the legal requirements are met.
Furthermore, the data subject has the right to obtain that the personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that this does not adversely affect other persons' rights and freedoms.
To assert the right to data portability, you can contact the data protection officer appointed by the operator of this website at any time.
Right to object
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her.
The operator of this website shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights, and freedoms of the data subject, or if the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.
To exercise the right to object, you can contact the data protection officer of this website directly.
Right to revoke consent under data protection law
Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right to revoke a given consent to the processing of personal data at any time.
If you wish to exercise your right to withdraw consent, you can contact our data protection officer at any time.
The use of contact data published within the imprint obligation framework to send advertising and information materials not expressly requested is hereby prohibited. The operators of the pages explicitly reserve the right to take legal action in the unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam e-mails.
Use of Google Maps
This website uses the offer of Google Maps. This allows us to display interactive maps directly on the website and enables you to comfortably use the map function. By visiting the website, Google receives the information you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether there is no user account. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not want the assignment with your Google profile, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research, and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide needs-based advertising and inform other social network users about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to creating these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right. For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by Google, as well as more details on your rights in this regard and settings options for protecting your privacy, please visit www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited. Suppose the data controller on this website is located outside the European Economic Area or Switzerland. In that case, the Google Analytics data processing is carried out by Google LLC. Google LLC and Google Ireland Limited are hereinafter referred to as "Google."
The statistics obtained enable us 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, carried out via 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 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google. On this website, we would like to point out that Google Analytics has been extended by the code "_anonymizeIp();" to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses. This means that IP addresses are processed in abbreviated form, which means that they cannot be linked to a specific person. Insofar as the data collected about you is related to a person, this is therefore immediately excluded, and the personal data is thus immediately deleted.
Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of this website's operator, Google will use this information to evaluate your website's use, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has submitted it to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
Also, you can prevent the use of Google Analytics by clicking on this link: Disable Google Analytics. This will save a so-called opt-out cookie on your data carrier, preventing personal data processing by Google Analytics. Please note that if you delete all cookies on your terminal device, these opt-out cookies will also be deleted, i.e., you will have to set the opt-out cookies again if you wish to continue to prevent this form of data collection. The opt-out cookies are set per browser and computer/end device. They must therefore be activated separately for each browser, computer, or other end devices.
We use the marketing services of the social network LinkedIn of LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland ("LinkedIn") within our online offer.
This includes, for example, information about the operating system, the browser, the website you previously visited (referrer URL), which websites the user visited, which offers the user clicked on, and the date and time of your visit to our website.
The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is transferred pseudonymously to a LinkedIn server in the USA and stored there. LinkedIn, therefore, does not hold the name or e-mail address of the respective user. Instead, the data mentioned above is only assigned to the person for whom the cookie was generated. This does not apply if the user has allowed LinkedIn to process without pseudonymization or has a LinkedIn account.
We use LinkedIn Analytics to analyze and regularly improve the use of our website. The statistics obtained enable us to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. All LinkedIn companies have adopted the standard contractual clauses to ensure that the data traffic to the USA and Singapore is necessary to develop, implement, and maintain the services lawfully. If we ask users for consent, the legal basis for processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR. Otherwise, the legal basis for the use of LinkedIn Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Functions of the "YouTube" service are integrated on this website. "YouTube" is owned by Google Ireland Limited, a company incorporated and operated under the laws of Ireland, with its registered office at Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, which uses the services in the European Economic Area and Switzerland.
Note on data transfer to the USA.
Among other things, tools from companies based in the USA are integrated on our website. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to the US respective companies' US servers. We would like to point out that the USA is not a safe third country in the sense of EU data protection law. US companies must hand over personal data to security authorities without you as a data subject to take legal action against this. Therefore, it cannot be ruled out that US authorities (e.g., intelligence services) process, evaluate, and permanently store your data located on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.
