5. Cookies

We typically use cookies and similar techniques on our Website to identify your browser or device. A cookie is a small file that is sent to your computer or automatically stored on your computer or mobile device by the web browser you use when you visit our Website. When you visit the Website again, we can recognise you, although we don’t know who you are. In addition to cookies that are only used during a session and are deleted after your visit to the Website (“session cookies”), cookies can also be used to store user settings and other information for a certain period of time, e.g. two years (“permanent cookies”). However, you can set your browser to reject cookies, to save them only for one session or to delete them early. Most web browsers automatically accept Cookies.

5.1 Necessary Cookies

We use technically necessary cookies in some sections of our Website. Such file elements allow your computer to be identified as a technical unit during your visit to the Website in order to enable you to use our services. However, you usually have the option of setting your internet browser to inform you about the use of cookies so that you can allow or exclude them or delete existing cookies. Please use the help function of your internet browser to obtain information on how to change these settings. Please note that certain functions of our Website may not work properly if you have deactivated technically necessary cookies. Cookies do not allow a server to read private data from your computer or the data stored by another server. They do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Our use of technically necessary cookies is based on article 6 para. 1 f GDPR, i.e. the processing is carried out to enable the functioning of our Website. It is therefore necessary to protect our legitimate interests.

5.2 Additional Cookies

In addition, we use the following cookies to understand how you use our services and to be able to present you with other marketing offers that may be of interest to you. The cookies described below are only used if you have given your prior consent (within the scope of the GDPR in accordance with article 6 para. 1 a).

Use of Google Tag Manager

We use Google Tag Manager. This is a management system that allows us to integrate the other services shown below into our Website. Google Tag Manager itself does not process any personal data. This is only done through the Google services described below and in the manner described there.

Use of Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files stored on your computer that enable an analysis of your use of the Website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this Website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, since IP anonymisation is enabled on our Website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states which are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address will be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google uses this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the Website, to compile reports on Website activities and to provide us with further services related to Website and internet use.

The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do this you may not be able to benefit from the full functionality of our Website. 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 via the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).

Please note that on this Website Google Analytics has been extended with the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” in order to guarantee anonymised collection of IP addresses (referred to as IP masking). In addition, you can prevent Google Analytics from collecting data by clicking this link. An opt-out cookie is then set to prevent further collection of your information when you visit this Website. This procedure is particularly recommended when accessing our site via mobile devices. For more information on terms of use and data protection, please visit www.google.com/analytics/terms or https://policies.google.com/privacy. Our use of the aforementioned analysis tool is based on your consent (article 6 para. 1 a GDPR).

Google Web Fonts

The Website uses so-called web fonts, which are provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly. To do this, the browser you are using must connect to Google’s servers. This enables Google to know that our Website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If your browser does not support Web Fonts, a standard font from your computer will be used. Further information on Google Web Fonts can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in the Google data protection declaration: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

6. Your Rights

In connection with the processing of your personal data, you are entitled by law to various rights, but please note that their existence and scope may vary depending on the applicable data protection legislation:

  • Information: You have the right to ask the Company which, if any, of your personal data it processes. If required, please submit a request for information.
  • Rectification: Should your personal data be incorrect, you have a legal right to its correction.
  • Withdrawal of consent: Processing of your personal data is in general not based on your consent, which is separate from the contractual relationship. If this should nevertheless be the case in exceptional cases, you can revoke your consent at any time. The revocation is only valid for the future and does not affect any other basis for data processing.
  • Objection: Insofar as the processing of your personal data is based on the legitimate interest of the Company, you may object to the use of your personal data. However, this is only the case if you are in such a special situation that your personal interest is in conflict with the use of your personal data. The Company reserves the right to provide compelling, overriding reasons. Furthermore, you may at any time object to the use of your personal data for direct marketing purposes. Processing based on other factors remains unaffected by the objection.
  • Restriction: Under certain circumstances, you may request that the processing of your data be restricted. This may be the case if you doubt the accuracy of your data. Please note that any processing restriction may limit the scope of our services or make the service unavailable.
  • Data portability: If provided for under applicable data protection law, you may request the personal data you have provided us with in the form required by law and – subject to important conflicting interests – continue to use it.
  • Right of deletion: See Clause 9 below.
  • Complaints: Depending on the applicable data protection legislation, you may have a legal right of appeal to the relevant data protection authority; if processing takes place within the EU, this right may extend to the EU.

7. Other Recipients of Your Personal Data

When processing your personal data, the Company may use third parties to carry out the data processing on behalf of the Company. In particular, this may be the case for handling commercial and administrative services and in connection with IT services. Your privacy is always ensured.

Please note that the passing on of anonymised data remains possible regardless of the above.

8. Place of Data Processing

Your personal data is generally processed in Switzerland. If your personal data is disclosed abroad, this will only take place to countries that have a recognised equivalent data protection standard or where specific guarantees have been given.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with the relevant contact referred to below.

9. Storage Duration / Deletion of Personal Data

We generally delete your data from the time at which the purpose for processing no longer applies. In the event of an objection to processing on the basis of a legitimate interest or consent, we will delete your data from this point in time, unless another permission for processing continues to exist, for example in the case of legal storage obligations, a legitimate interest to enforce our own legal positions, etc.
