1. Principle
1.1. A privacy policy clarifies the type, purpose and scope of the processing of personal data in connection with the use of our website and the services offered. This Privacy Policy applies regardless of the domains or devices (such as smartphones or desktop computers) used.

1.2. Personal data includes, for example, measurement and usage data for analysing the sub-pages visited or the interest in actual offers.

2. Security
2.1. Data security has the highest priority. Accordingly, we take organisational, contractual and technical security measures. This ensures that data is optimally protected against loss, unauthorised access and manipulation.

2.2. For this reason, for example, the entire data transfer process between the web browser and the web server is encrypted.

3. Passing on data to third parties
3.1. Data shall only be disclosed to third parties within the scope of the statutory provisions (Art. 6(1)(b) of the GDPR), and only with explicit consent.

4. Establishing contact / providing contractual services

4.2. Personal data is stored in our customer relationship management system (“CRM system”).

5. Collection of access data and log files
5.1. We collect information about each access to the web server based on our legitimate interests. Access data includes the name of the domain accessed, the date and time of access, the amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, language and version of the browser software, the user's operating system, referrer URL (the page previously visited), IP address and the requesting provider.

5.2. Log file information is temporarily stored for security reasons (e.g. to clarify misuse or fraud) and deleted after 30 days. Data that needs to be stored further for evidence purposes is excluded from deletion until the respective incident has been finally clarified.

6. Cookies
6.1. Cookies are pieces of information that are transmitted from our web server or third party web servers to the user’s web browser and stored there for later retrieval. Cookies can be small files or other types of information storage.

6.2. We use “session cookies”, which are only stored for the duration of the current visit to our website. A randomly generated, unique identification number, a so-called session ID, is stored in a session cookie. In addition, a cookie contains information about its origin and the storage period. These cookies cannot store any other data. Session cookies are deleted when you have finished using our website and log out or close your browser, for example.

6.3. Users are informed about the use of cookies within the scope of anonymous audience measurement within the scope of this Privacy Policy.

6.4. Most browsers automatically accept cookies. You can adjust the settings for cookies in your browser in order to disable certain or all cookies. Please note, however, that as a result, the website’s functions may be restricted. To learn more about how cookies can be controlled in different browsers, please use the following links:

You can object to the use of cookies for audience measurement and advertising purposes via the deactivation page of the Network Advertising Initiative (http://optout.networkadvertising.org/) and additionally the US website (http://www.aboutads.info/choices) or the European website (http://www.youronlinechoices.com/ch-de/praferenzmanagementGerman-language only).

7.Web analysis
7.1. For web analysis, we use Google Analytics, a service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the website by the user is usually transferred to a Google server and stored there.

7.2. Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and therefore offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

7.3. We use Google Analytics only with IP anonymisation enabled. This means that your IP address will be shortened in Switzerland, the EU or the EEA. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Accordingly, Google stores the information collected via cookies only in anonymous form and processes it in aggregated form.

7.4. You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser accordingly. This is also possible via the browser plugin provided by Google: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

7.7. We use re-targeting technologies on our website.  This is done to analyse your user behaviour on our website in order to be able to offer you individually tailored advertising on our partner websites.
