Privacy Policy and Legal Information

1 General / Introduction

This privacy policy informs users about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the responsible provider on this website.

Based on Article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution and in particular the data protection provisions of the Swiss Confederation (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.

In cooperation with our hosting providers, we take technical and organizational measures to protect the databases as well as possible against unauthorized access, loss, misuse or falsification.

2 Personal data

2.1 What personal data is

According to Art. 5 of the Federal Act on Data Protection, which has been in force since September 2023, personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.
In addition, Art. 5 para. c lists particularly sensitive personal data, namely data relating to religious, philosophical, political or trade union views or activities, data concerning health, privacy or racial or ethnic origin, genetic and biometric data, data concerning social assistance measures or administrative and criminal prosecutions or sanctions.

2.2 What personal data we collect and why we collect it

In this privacy policy, we describe the types of personal data we collect, why we record this data and how we use it in connection with the services on our website. In doing so, we strictly adhere to the applicable data protection laws. Personal data includes any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural or legal person. The Swiss Data Protection Act distinguishes between general personal data and particularly sensitive personal data.

  • Ensuring a smooth connection to the website
  • Ensuring the smooth use of our website
  • Statistical information on visits to the website, with the aim of ensuring the best possible relevance of the information
  • Evaluation of system security and stability
  • For further administrative purposes

2.2.2 Personal data processed for the provision of services

In principle, we do not store any particularly sensitive personal data in accordance with Article 5 paragraph c of the Data Protection Act.

The personal data that may be processed relates primarily to information that you provide to us either directly or indirectly.
Examples of situations in which we may collect your personal data are

  • When you contact us via the contact form or by email
  • When you use other services on the website, which we can only provide if we know your personal data.

The processing of personal data is necessary in order to fulfill our contractual obligations towards you, to represent our commercial interests if necessary, to react or respond directly to your contact appropriately and to comply with your request to send you our newsletter, which may be available for subscription.

a) Contact form

When using the contact form, we also regularly require at least the first name, surname, place of residence and e-mail address to process the request.
This personal data will not be passed on to third parties.

b) Newsletter

If you would like to receive a newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. No further data is collected. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.
After you have given your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and its use for sending the newsletter, you can revoke this at any time, for example via the "unsubscribe link" in the newsletter or by contacting us directly.
The email address provided to us will not be passed on to third parties

2.3 How long personal data is stored

Messages sent via the contact form, by email or letter will be stored by us for one year, but at least until the matter dealt with in the message has been resolved. Otherwise, we comply with the statutory provisions regarding retention periods; in particular, we are required by law to retain medical records for 10 years.

2.4 Rights of data subjects

In accordance with Art. 25 of the Swiss Data Protection Act, any person may request information from the person responsible for the website as to whether personal data relating to them is being processed. The data subject receives the information required to assert their rights under this law and to ensure transparent data processing.
Data subjects can have the processing of their personal data restricted and have their personal data corrected, deleted, blocked or completed. Furthermore, consent given can be withdrawn at any time with effect for the future and an objection to the processing of personal data can be raised at any time.

There may be certain exceptions to this right:
In particular, in order to fulfill a contract, to protect our own legitimate interests such as the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims, or to comply with legal obligations, your data may need to be processed and stored despite your objection. To the extent permitted by law, data protection-related requests such as data erasure may therefore also be rejected or only complied with to a limited extent.

3 Cookies

Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard disk. They are required for the customized display of the website and in particular when using the web store. Cookies cannot be used to start programs or transfer viruses to a computer. Using the information contained in cookies, we can make navigation easier for you, enable our web pages to be displayed correctly and allow you to order goods in the web store.

Under no circumstances will the data collected by us on the basis of cookies be passed on to third parties.

A distinction is made between "functional cookies", "analytical cookies" and "marketing cookies".

3.1 Technical or functional cookies

These cookies ensure that parts of our website function properly and that your user preferences remain known. By placing functional cookies, we make it easier for you to visit our website. This means that you do not have to repeatedly enter the same information when you visit our website, we can place these cookies without your consent because they are necessary for the function and are also usually deleted after the session has ended (so-called session cookies).
This website does not use any cookies other than session cookies, which are required for the normal operation of a website. The session cookies are deleted at the end of the website visit or when the order is completed.

3.2 Analytical cookies

Analytical cookies are used to gain insights into the use of our website. This enables us to identify opportunities for improvement.
We ask for your permission to place analytical cookies.
No such cookies are used from this website.

3.3 Marketing cookies

Marketing cookies collect information about the websites visited by users. This data is used to display personalized advertisements that match users' interests.
No marketing cookies are used on this website.

In principle, you can also view our website without any cookies. However, Internet browsers are usually set to accept cookies. In almost all modern browsers, however, the use of cookies can be deactivated at any time via the settings. If you wish, please use the help functions of your Internet browser to find out how you can change these settings. Please note, however, that individual functions of our website may not work if you have deactivated the use of all cookies.


4 Integrated services from third parties

We do not use any integrated services that are automatically called up when you visit the site.


5 Data security

All files on this website and all stored personal data are stored on highly secure servers in the EU or Switzerland. The operators of the servers have agreed in writing to comply with all security standards for storing data and protecting it from unauthorized access.

Data transmitted when you visit this website is encrypted using the commonly used, secure TLS (Transport Layer Security) standard. This means that it is highly unlikely that any personal data you enter can be accessed. Nevertheless, we must point out that data transmission on the Internet (especially when communicating by e-mail, which is usually unencrypted) can have security gaps. Despite all efforts, it is not possible to completely protect data from access by third parties, but the level of security selected can be described as high.


6 Copyrights

The 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 specifically named rights holders. The written consent of the copyright holder must be obtained in advance for the reproduction of any files.
Anyone who commits a copyright infringement without the consent of the respective copyright holder may be liable to prosecution and may be entitled to claim damages.


7 Disclaimer

All information on our website has been carefully checked. We make every effort to ensure that the information we provide is up-to-date, correct and complete. Nevertheless, the occurrence of errors cannot be completely ruled out, so that we cannot assume any liability for the completeness, correctness and topicality of the information, including journalistic and editorial information. Liability claims relating to material or non-material damage caused by the use or non-use of the information provided or by the use of incorrect or incomplete information are fundamentally excluded.

The publisher may change or delete texts at its own discretion and without prior notice and is not obliged to update the contents of this website.

The use of or access to this website is at the visitor's own risk. The publisher, its customers or partners are not responsible for any damages, such as direct, indirect, incidental or consequential damages, allegedly caused by visiting this website and consequently assume no liability for such damages.
The publisher also accepts no responsibility or liability for the content and availability of third-party websites that can be accessed via external links from this website. The operators of the linked sites are solely responsible for their content. The publisher therefore expressly distances itself from all third-party content that may be relevant under criminal or liability law or offend common decency.


8 Severability clause

Should individual provisions of this contract be invalid or unenforceable or become invalid or unenforceable after conclusion of the contract, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this contract.


9 Changes to our privacy policy

We reserve the right to amend this privacy policy so that it always complies with current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the privacy policy, e.g. when introducing new services. The new privacy policy will then apply to your next visit.
