In collaboration with our hosting provider, we make every effort to protect the databases against unauthorized access, data loss, data misuse or forgery. We would like to point out that data transmission on the internet can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is impossible.
Personal data is all information that relates to an identified or identifiable person. A data subject is a person about whom personal data is processed. Processing includes any handling of personal data, irrespective of the means and procedures applied, in particular the retention, disclosure, acquisition, deletion, storage, modification, destruction and use of personal data.
We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law and – insofar and to the extent that the EU DSGVO is applicable – in accordance with the following legal principles relating to Art. 6 Para. 1 DSGVO:
We process personal data for the duration necessary for the related purpose or purposes. In the case of longer-term storage obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we restrict processing accordingly.
This website uses SSL/TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests you send to us. You can recognize an encrypted connection based on the lock symbol displayed by your browser next to the URL and the fact that the URL starts with “https://” instead of “http://”.
If SSL/TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us is better protected against being read by third parties.
The provider of this website automatically collects and stores the following data, which your browser automatically transmits to us, in log files:
This data cannot be assigned to specific persons and is not consolidated with other data sources. We reserve the right to subsequently check this data if we become aware of concrete indications of illegal use.
For the sake of completeness, we would like to point out that users based in Switzerland are subject to monitoring measures by US authorities, which generally allow the storage of all personal data transmitted from Switzerland to the USA. This is done without differentiation, restriction or exception related to pursued objectives and without any objective criterion that would make it possible to limit the access of the US authorities to the data and their subsequent use to very specific, strictly limited purposes, which could justify both access to the data and interferences associated with its use.
Furthermore, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that there are no legal remedies available in the USA for data subjects from Switzerland that would allow them to gain access to their data and to obtain its correction or deletion. There is no effective judicial protection against the general access rights of US authorities to that data.
Users residing in a member state of the EU are advised that the USA does not have a sufficient level of data protection from the perspective of the European Union.
