Data Protection Declaration
The operators of this website take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data as confidential and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations, as well as this data protection declaration.
It is normally possible to use our website without providing any personal data. Where personal data (for example, name, address or email addresses) is collected on our website, this is, where possible, always provided on a voluntary basis. This information shall not be disclosed to third parties without your explicit consent.
Please note that data transmitted via the internet (e.g. via email communication) may be subject to security breaches. It is not possible to fully protect data from third-party access.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device’s memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognise your browser when you next visit the site.
Server log files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in “server log files”. These are:
Browser type and browser version
The operating system used
Host name of the accessing computer
Time of the server request
This data cannot be used to identify specific people. This data is not combined with data from other sources. We reserve the right to retrospectively examine this log data in the event of concrete evidence of illegal activity.
Should you send us questions via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, in order to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share this data without your permission.
In order to be able to evaluate our website statistically, we use the program AWStats. The program is a free web analysis software. It is used to evaluate log files that web servers create based on visitor queries. The program does not use cookie files for the evaluation. The statistical analysis is carried out via the log files, which also contain IP addresses. This data cannot be used to identify specific people. Such data will not be merged with other data sources and the data is deleted after it has been statistically analysed. Unlike other statistical programs, AWStats does not transmit data to an external server. The program is installed on the own server. Thus, a transfer of data abroad is avoided, as our servers are located in Switzerland (CH).
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses what are called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is usually transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
We have activated the IP anonymization feature on this website. This will result in your IP address being truncated by Google within the Member States of the European Union or other states party to the Agreement in the European Economic Area, prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases will the entire IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activity and to provide other services related to the website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.
Objecting to the collection of data
You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set that prevents your data being collected on future visits to this site: Disable Google Analytics
Demographic features of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics’ “demographic features”. This allows reports to be generated containing statements about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. This collected data cannot be attributed to any specific individual person. You can disable this feature at any time by adjusting the advert settings in your Google account or you can generally forbid the collection of your data by Google Analytics as described in the “Objection to data collection” section.
Right to information, deletion, and blocking
You always have the right to free information about your stored personal data, its origin, recipient, and the purpose of data processing, as well as a right to the correction, blocking, or deletion of this data. You can contact us at any time using the address given in our legal notice if you have further questions on the topic of personal data.

Integration of third-party services and content
On the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation, and economic operation of our website within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR), we include content or service offerings of third parties so that we can incorporate their content and services, such as videos or fonts (hereinafter uniformly referred to as “content”). This always requires that the third-party providers of this content can see the IP address of users, since without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to the users’ browsers. The IP address is therefore necessary in order to display this content. We endeavour only to use such content where the respective providers use the IP address solely to supply the content. Third-party providers may also use “pixel tags” (invisible graphics, also known as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. “Pixel tags” can be used to analyse information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user’s device and may include technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, visiting time, and other information about the use of our website. It may also be linked to such information from other sources.
The following presentation offers an overview of third-party providers and their content in addition to links to their privacy policies, which contain further references to the processing of data and, already mentioned here in part, opportunities to object (“opt-out”):
