2. General information and mandatory information
We would point out that data transmission on the Internet (e. g. in communication by E-Mail) may have gaps in security. Complete protection of data from access by third parties is not possible.
Note on the responsible body
The responsible body for data processing on this website is:
Brunnhofweg 37 / Postfach 8162
Tel.: +41 31 309 41 11
The responsible body is the natural person or legal entity that decides, alone or together with others, on the purposes and methods of processing personal data (e. g. names, e-mail addresses, etc.).
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke an existing consent at any time. An informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of data processing carried out until cancellation is unaffected by the revocation.
Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of infringements of data protection law, the person affected has the right under Article 77 of the GDPR to complain to the competent supervisory authority. Generally, you can do this by contacting the supervisory authority in your habitual place of residence.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data which we automatically process based on your consent or in performance of a contract handed over to yourself or to a third party in a common, machine readable format. If you require direct transmission of data to another responsible body, this will be done only if it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as a site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the address line of the browser being changed from "http: //" to "https: //" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, erasure
In accordance with the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information on your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, if necessary, a right to rectification, blocking or erasure of this data. You can contact us about this and on other matters concerning the subject of personal data at any time using the address indicated on the contact page.
Objection to advertising e-mails
The use of contact data published under the imprint obligation for sending unsolicited advertising and information materials is hereby rejected. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal measures in the event of sending unsolicited promotional information, such as spam e-mails.
3. Data collection on our website
Most of the cookies we use are called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser at your next visit.
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in what are called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
Browser type and browser version
used Referrer URL
Host name of the accessing computer
Time of the server request
This data will not be merged with other data sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, which allows the processing of data for the performance of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including your contact details specified therein, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the request and in case of follow-up questions. We will not share this data without your consent.
The processing of the data entered on the contact form is thus exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of data processing operations carried out until revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data entered by you in the contact form remains with us until you ask us for it to be erased, revoke your consent to its storage or the purpose for the data storage ceases to apply (e. g. after completion of your enquiry). Mandatory legal provisions - especially retention periods - remain unaffected.
Registration on this website
You can register on our website to use additional features on the site. We only use the data entered for the purposes of using the respective offer or service for which you have registered. The mandatory information requested during registration must be given in full. Otherwise we will decline the registration.
For important changes such as the scope of our offer or for technically necessary changes, we use the e-mail address specified during registration to inform you in this way.
The processing of the data entered during registration takes place on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke your consent at any time. An informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of data processing already carried out is not affected by the revocation. The data collected during registration is stored by us as long as you are registered on our website and will be subsequently erased. The statutory storage periods will remain unaffected.
4. Social media
Facebook plugins (like and share buttons)
Facebook plugins (provided by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA) are integrated into our web pages. They are visible as the Facebook logo or the Facebook like button are listed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
If you visit our web pages, the plugin is used to create a direct link between your browser and the Facebook server. That is how Facebook learns you have visited our website from your IP address. If you click the Facebook like button whilst logged into your Facebook account, you can link the contents of our web pages to your Facebook profile, which enables Facebook to record the visit to our web pages in your user account. Note that, as the provider of the web pages, we receive no information about the content of the data transmitted or their use by Facebook. You can find further information about this in Facebook’s data protection statement, at https://facebook.com/policy.php.

Our web pages use Google+ functions, provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Capture and onward provision of information: using the Google+ button, you can publish information globally, and you and other users can receive personalised content from Google and our partners. Google not only records the fact that you have clicked +1 in relation to particular content but also records information about the website you were viewing when you clicked +1. Your +1s can be displayed as suggestions together with your profile name and your photo in Google services, for instance in search results or in your Google profile, or on other parts of websites and ads on the Internet.
Google records information about your +1 activities to improve Google services for you and others. To be able to use the Google+ button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile, which must contain at least the name you choose for the profile. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name can also replace another name that you have used to share content through your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be shown to users who know your email address or have other identifiable information from you.
Use of the information captured: in addition to the above uses, the information you provide is used in accordance with the prevailing Google data protection terms. Google can publish summarised statistics on +1 activities of users or provide these to users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers, or linked websites.
