Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in our company, our products and our services. In order to ensure that you feel safe and secure during your visit, we take the protection of your personal data and its confidential treatment very seriously.  These notes on data protection are therefore intended to inform you about in which situations data is saved, which data is saved and how we use it.

Our offers are always available to all interested parties and are not specifically geared to specific economic areas (e.g. European Union). With respect to data protection and to business or trade secrets, our products and services are exclusively subject to Swiss law unless otherwise agreed in writing.

Collection and processing of data

We log every time that a user accesses our Internet portal and retrieves a file stored in the Internet portal. This data is stored for reasons related to our internal systems and for statistical purposes. The following details are logged: name of the file retrieved, date and time of retrieval, volume of data transferred, notification of successful retrieval, web browser and requesting domain. In addition, the IP addresses of the requesting computers are logged. Personal data is only collected if you provide it of your own accord, for example to submit a registration or enquiry.

Use and disclosure of personal data

If you have provided us with personal data, we will only use it to respond to your enquiries, to process contracts and registrations concluded with you, and for technical administration.  Your personal data will only be passed on or otherwise transmitted to third parties if this is necessary for the purpose of contract processing – specifically for forwarding order data to suppliers – or if this is necessary for billing purposes or if you have given your prior consent.  Saved personal data is deleted if you revoke your approval of storage, if your knowledge of this for the purpose for which it was stored is no longer required, or if storage would be impermissible for other statutory reasons. In accordance with the procedure laid down in commercial and fiscal law, the data will be deleted unless you have expressly consented to the continued use of the data.  We take all of the necessary technical and organisational security measures to protect personal data from loss and misuse. For example, data is stored in a secure operating environment that is not accessible to the public. Where possible, confidential information is transmitted in encrypted form with an SSL certificate via HTTPS protocol. When communicating by e-mail, we cannot guarantee complete data security, so we recommend that you send confidential information by post or use a suitable encryption programme.

The information generated by the cookie concerning your use of this website is usually sent to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored. If, however, IP anonymisation is activated for this website, Google will only store your IP address in truncated form within a Member State of the European Union or another signatory state to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional circumstances will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the website owner to evaluate the way you use the site, in order to compile website activity reports and to provide the website owner with other services related to website and Internet usage. Google will not combine the IP address transmitted by your browser in connection with Google Analytics with any other data. You can prevent the installation of cookies by adjusting the relevant setting in your browser software; however we would like to point out that you will not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent in this case.

With regard to the use of analytics tools with complete IP addresses, we would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()” and therefore IP addresses are only processed in abbreviated form in order to prevent any direct personal references.
