Analysis tools

Google Analytics

Our website uses the web analysis service Google Analytics from Google Inc, USA. Google Analytics uses cookies (see under Cookies). These enable an analysis of the use of our website offer incl. IP addresses by Google in the USA. We would like to point out that IP anonymization is used on this website. If anonymization is active, Google truncates IP addresses within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, which is why no conclusions can be drawn about your identity. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google observes the data protection provisions of the "Swiss-USA Privacy Shield" agreement and thus has an adequate level of data protection. Google uses the information collected to evaluate the use of our websites for us, to compile reports for us in this regard and to provide other related services to us. You can find out more at, in particular regarding the possibility of deactivating Google Analytics at


Social media plug-in

We use the social plug-ins listed below on our website to make our company better known. The underlying promotional purpose is to be regarded as a legitimate interest. This is apparent to you in each case (typically via corresponding icons). The responsibility for data protection-compliant operation is to be ensured by their respective providers. Data processing in connection with these plug-ins takes place with your consent when you use them.

If you use the services of these social networks independently of or in connection with our website, the social networks evaluate your use of the plug-in. In this case, information about the plug-in is forwarded to the social networks.



Our website uses plug-ins of the social network Facebook, which is offered by Facebook Inc. The Facebook plug-ins are marked with a Facebook logo or the addition "Like" or "Share". An overview of the Facebook plug-ins and their appearance can be found at

When you call up a page of our website that contains such a plug-in, your browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook's servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser and integrated into the page.

Through this integration, Facebook receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook profile or are not currently logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there.

If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can directly assign your visit to our website to your Facebook profile. If you interact with the plug-ins, for example by clicking the "Like" button, this information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on your Facebook profile and displayed to your Facebook friends.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, can be found in Facebook's privacy policy:

Google Maps

Google Maps services are used on our website (e.g. in-screen or via interfaces/API). Google LLC, USA, may therefore process information about your actual location. Google uses various technologies such as IP addresses, GPS and other sensors to determine your location, which provide Google with information about nearby devices, WLAN access points or mobile phone masts, for example.

For the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, please refer to Google's privacy policy at



Plug-ins of the social network Instagram Inc, USA, are installed on our website. You can recognize the Instagram plug-in by the Instagram logo. When you call up a page of our website that contains such a plug-in, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Instagram server. Instagram thereby receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click the Instagram button while logged into your Instagram account, you can link the content of our pages on your LinkedIn profile. This allows Instagram to associate the visit to our pages with your user account. We point out that we as the provider of the pages have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data and its use by Instagram.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google, as well as your rights in this respect and settings options for the protection of your personal data, are explained in detail on this website.

The data entered by you for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be processed exclusively on the basis of your consent.

Your rights

Within the scope of the data protection law applicable to you and insofar as provided therein, you have the right:

- To request information about your personal data processed by us. In particular, you can request information about the processing purposes, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period, the existence of a right to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing, the existence of a right of complaint, the origin of your data if it has not been collected by us, as well as the existence of automated decision-making and, if applicable, meaningful information about its details. In the event of disproportionate effort, we reserve the right to require you to provide proof of identity and to pay the actual costs in advance.

- demand the correction of incorrect or incomplete personal data stored by us without delay.

- demand the deletion of your personal data stored by us, unless the processing is necessary for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.

- To request the restriction of the processing of your personal data, insofar as the accuracy of the data is disputed by you, the processing is unlawful, but you object to its erasure and we no longer need the data, but you need it for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or you have objected to the processing.

- To receive your personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request that it be transferred to another controller.

- To revoke your consent once given to us at any time. This has the consequence that we may no longer continue the data processing based on this consent for the future.

In addition, every data subject has the right to enforce his or her claims in court or to lodge a complaint with the competent data protection authority. The competent data protection authority in Switzerland is the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (

For our part, we reserve the right to assert the restrictions provided for by law, for example if we are obliged to retain or process certain data, have an overriding interest in doing so (insofar as we are entitled to rely on this) or require it for the assertion of claims.


Data security

We take appropriate technical and organizational security precautions to protect your personal data from unauthorized access and misuse.

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as registrations or inquiries that you send to us as site operator, our website uses SSL or TLS encryption. 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.

Retention period

We process and store your personal data as long as it is necessary for the fulfillment of our contractual and legal obligations or otherwise the purposes pursued with the processing, i.e. for example for the processing of the order or the duration of the entire business relationship (from the initiation, processing to the termination of a contract) as well as beyond that in accordance with the legal storage and documentation obligations. In this context, it is possible that personal data will be retained for the time during which claims can be asserted against our company and insofar as we are otherwise legally obligated to do so or legitimate business interests require this (e.g. for evidence and documentation purposes). As soon as your personal data is no longer required for the above-mentioned purposes, it will be deleted or anonymized as a matter of principle and to the extent possible. For operational data (e.g. system logs, logs), generally shorter retention periods of twelve months or less apply.


Up-to-dateness and amendment of this data protection declaration

The website operator may change or adapt this data protection declaration at any time without prior notice. The currently valid data protection declaration can be accessed via the website. Insofar as the data protection declaration is part of an agreement with you, we will inform you of the change by e-mail or other suitable means in the event of an update.
