General/Introduction:
Based on Article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution and the data protection provisions of the Federal Act (Data Protection Act, DSG), every person is entitled to protection of their privacy and protection against misuse of their personal data. The operators of these pages 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 privacy policy.

Processing of Personal Data:
Personal data includes all information that relates to an identified or identifiable person. We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law. If and to the extent the EU GDPR is applicable, we also process personal data on the following legal bases in connection with Article 6(1) GDPR:

  • a) Processing of personal data with the consent of the data subject.

  • b) Processing of personal data for the performance of a contract with the data subject or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

  • c) Processing of personal data to fulfill a legal obligation to which we are subject under EU law or the law of a country in which the GDPR is applicable.

  • d) Processing of personal data to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person.

  • f) Processing of personal data to safeguard our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of third parties, unless the fundamental freedoms and rights and interests of the data subject prevail. Legitimate interests include, in particular, our business interest, the ability to provide our website, information security, the enforcement of our own legal claims, and compliance with Swiss law.

  • We process personal data for the duration necessary for the respective purpose or purposes. In the case of longer retention obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we restrict processing accordingly.

Cookies:
This website uses cookies. These are small text files that allow specific, user-related information to be stored on the user's device while using the website. Cookies enable, in particular, the recognition of the user's browser, the analysis of usage frequency, and the number of users of the pages. Cookies remain stored beyond the end of a browser session and can be retrieved when the site is visited again. If you do not wish this, you should set your internet browser to refuse the acceptance of cookies.

SSL/TLS Encryption:
This website uses SSL/TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests you send 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. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Third-Party Services:
This website may use Google Maps for map embedding, Google Invisible reCAPTCHA for protection against bots and spam, and YouTube for video embedding. These services from the American Google LLC use cookies, which means that data is transferred to Google in the USA. Google has committed to ensuring adequate data protection in accordance with the US-European and US-Swiss Privacy Shield.

Contact Form:
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your information from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and for the case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

Newsletter:
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an email address from you. Further data is not collected. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.

Comment Functionality:

For the comment function on this website, in addition to your comment, information about the time of the comment's creation, your email address, and, if you post non-anonymously, the username you have chosen will be stored.

Storage of IP Address:

Our comment function stores the IP addresses of users who submit comments. Since we do not review comments on our site before they are approved, we need this data to take action in the event of legal violations such as insults or propaganda against the author.

Paid Services:

For the provision of paid services, we request additional data such as payment details to fulfill your order. We store this data in our systems until the legal retention periods have expired.

Copyright:

Copyright and all other rights to the content, images, photos, or other files on the website belong exclusively to the operator of this website or the rights holders named. Prior written consent of the copyright holders is required for the reproduction of all files. Anyone who commits copyright infringement without the consent of the respective copyright holders may be held liable and may face claims for damages.

Disclaimer:

All information on our website has been carefully reviewed. We strive to ensure that the information we provide is current, correct, and complete. However, errors cannot be completely ruled out, and we cannot guarantee the completeness, correctness, and timeliness of the information, including journalistic and editorial content. Liability claims relating to material or immaterial damage caused by the use or non-use of the provided information or by the use of incorrect or incomplete information are generally excluded. The publisher may change or delete texts at its discretion and without prior notice and is not obliged to update the content of this website. Use of this website or access to it is at the visitor's own risk. The publisher, its clients, or partners are not responsible for damages, such as direct, indirect, incidental, or consequential damages, allegedly caused by visiting this website, and therefore, assume no liability for such damages. The publisher also takes no responsibility or liability for the content and availability of third-party websites that can be reached through external links from this website. The operator expressly distances itself from all external content that may be criminally or legally relevant or violate good morals.

Google Maps:

This website uses Google Maps. This allows us to display interactive maps directly on the website and provide you with convenient use of the map function. By visiting the website, Google receives information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. This happens regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not want this assignment to your Google profile, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research, and/or tailoring its website to meet your needs. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles; to exercise this right, you must contact Google. For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by Google, as well as additional information about your rights and privacy settings, please visit: www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

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 processing is carried out by Google LLC. Google LLC and Google Ireland Limited are collectively referred to as "Google." The statistics obtained allow us to improve our offering and make it more interesting for you as a user. Google Analytics is also used on this website for cross-device analysis of visitor flows, which is carried out via a user ID. If you have a Google user account, you can deactivate cross-device analysis of your usage in your account settings under "My data," "Personal data." The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 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. We would like to point out that on this website, Google Analytics has been extended to include the code "_anonymizeIp();" to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses. This means that IP addresses are processed in a shortened form, and direct personal reference can be excluded. In exceptional cases where personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. Google Analytics uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. You can prevent the storage of cookies by configuring your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case, you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. 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 at the following link: Google Analytics deactivation. You can also prevent the use of Google Analytics by clicking on this link: Google Analytics deactivation. This will store an opt-out cookie on your device, which prevents the processing of personal data by Google Analytics. Please note that if you delete all cookies on your device, these opt-out cookies will also be deleted, meaning you will have to reactivate them if you wish to continue preventing this form of data collection. Opt-out cookies are set per browser and computer/device and must therefore be activated separately for each browser, computer, or other device.

Google WebFonts: This website uses web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. When you access a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly. If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer. Further information about Google Web Fonts can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google's privacy policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/
