Use of personal data
We don’t use any information allowing inferences about you for direct marketing activities or unsolicited follow-up activities without your prior consent.

You can visit our website without needing to give us information about you personally. Only non-personal usage data, like your IP address, the last page you visited, the web browser used, the date, the hour, etc., are collected in an anonymous manner and used to know the behaviour of our users and to improve our offer online.

Transmission of personal data
Your data will not be transmitted to third parties without your consent. The only exceptions to this are our service partners, which we need for dealing with the contractual relationship, so that if a legal obligation to disclose them exists or if the disclosure is necessary for any criminal persecution and is authorised by the law. In these cases, we strictly respect the provisions of Swiss law on the protection of data (DSG) and the general rules of the EU on the protection of data (EU GDPR). The scope of the data transmission is limited to the minimum.

Use of cookies
In order to make the visit of our website attractive and to allow the use of certain functions, we use cookies of different pages. Those are small text files stored on your device. Certain cookies that we use are deleted after the end of the browser session, which means after you close your browser (called session cookies). Other cookies stay on your device and permit us to recognise your browser on your next visit (called persistent cookies). You can configure your browser to inform you of the configuration of cookies and decide individually to accept them or to rule out acceptance in certain cases, or in general. If cookies aren’t accepted, the functionality of our website may be restrained.

Contact form
If you contact us via the contact form of our website, the data will be transmitted in an encrypted form in order to assure adequate security for this data.

Google Analytics
The Google Analytics component (with the anonymity function) is integrated into our website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection and analysation of data on the behaviour of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects data, among others, about which website one user has come from onto a website (called referent), which subpages of the website were consulted or how frequently and for how long a subpage was consulted. A web analysis is principally used to optimise a website and for a cost-benefit analysis of advertising on the internet.

Google Analytics also places a cookie on the computer system of the person concerned. The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access times, the location from which the access took place and the frequency of visits of our website by the person concerned. Each time that you visit our website, this personal data including the IP address of the internet connection used by the person concerned, are transmitted to Google in the United States. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States. Google can share this personal data with third parties via a technical process.

The person concerned can avoid the installation of cookies by our website at any moment by the means of a corresponding configuration of the web browser used and thereby definitively oppose the installation of cookies. One such configuration of the web browser used also avoids Google placing a cookie on the computer system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already established by Google can be deleted at any moment via the web browser.

In conclusion
By using this website, you agree to our data protection rules in the manner described and for the purposes stated.
