Data protection and data security
Security of data transfer
Please note that data transmitted over a public network such as the Internet or an email service can be viewed by anyone. We cannot guarantee the confidentiality of messages or documents transmitted through such open networks. If you disclose person-related information over an open network, you should be aware of the fact that third parties can potentially access this information and consequently can collect and use the data without your consent. Your data will be transmitted encrypted for specific services, but not the name of the sender and the receiver. Even if the sender and recipient reside in the same country, data transfer across such networks frequently also occurs without monitoring via third countries, i.e., including countries that may in some circumstances not offer the same level of data protection as that offered by your country of domicile.
Your data could be lost during transmission or could be intercepted by unauthorized third parties. We assume no responsibility for the security of your data during its transmission via the Internet and reject any and all liability for indirect and direct losses. We request that you use other means of communication if you consider this necessary or reasonable for reasons of security.
Protection, processing and use of person-related data
We automatically collect IP addresses and usage data when you visit this Website (please also note the reference to Google Analytics). This information helps us to determine in aggregated form how visitors use the Website and how often and how long they visit individual pages. We only acquire and process personal data in non-anonymized form (e.g., name, address, email address, or telephone number) relating to you (or in case of companies, also to your company) when you have provided this information to us (e.g., when you access password-protected areas of this Website or send us an email).
Person-related data are stored after their transmission to us on servers in Switzerland and in other European countries. Such data can only be accessed on a limited basis. We have implemented adequate technical and organizational measures so that only authorized persons have access to these servers and protect our technical environment according to recognized security standards.
Insofar as applicable law does not prohibit it, we can also use person-related data for marketing purposes.
