The personal data we collect and process includes personal information and contact details, as well as other personal data that you provide when you contact us.
As the transmission of data via the internet (for example by email) does not offer any protection against access by third parties without corresponding security measures (such as encryption), please only send confidential information in encrypted emails. The following data will be collected if you only visit the website and do not make contact with us:
- Your IP address

This data is not used for the purpose of identification.
We process data that we collect in connection with the use of our website or that you provide to us yourself, for example in connection with a business relationship, an application, a subscription to our newsletter or other enquiries.
We only use personal data for the purpose for which it was provided to us.
We mainly use personal data that we collect from publicly accessible sources for marketing purposes.
The main recipients of your personal data include those of our employees who need to access the data in connection with an existing or potential business relationship, or in order to process your concern.
The data may also be received by IT service providers who may be granted access to your data in connection with the provision of systems, and who have agreed by contract to comply with data protection requirements.
Your personal data will only be transmitted to third parties if this is permitted or required by law, or if you have consented to the forwarding of your data.
If your data is transmitted to countries outside the European Union and Switzerland ("third countries"), we ensure as far as possible by means of the conclusion of contracts that the recipients of your data also respect your personal rights and comply with the provisions of data protection law.
Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service offered by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and allow your use of the website to be analysed. The information generated by the cookie regarding your use of this website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will first truncate your IP address within member states of the European Union or other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the US and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The anonymised IP address transmitted by your browser in connection with Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
You may refuse the storing of cookies by changing your browser settings. However, we would like to point out that this will prevent you from being able to use the full functionality of this website.
The law provides for a number of rights relating to data protection that you may exercise at any time. We are happy to explain to you how you can assert your rights with respect to the personal data we process. This does not apply to personal data that we merely process in the role of processor. In such cases, we are happy to refer you to the relevant controller.
If you have explicitly consented to the collection, processing and forwarding of your personal data, you may revoke such consent, in full or in part, at any time.
Notice of the revocation of consent, or requests for amendment, must be submitted in writing. We will cease processing as soon as we receive your written revocation of consent, unless the further processing of your data is required by law. This does not affect the legality of any processing carried out prior to revocation.
You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time, without the need for separate revocation. If you have subscribed to our newsletter and no longer wish to receive it, please click on the link provided in the newsletter for this purpose.
The applicable statutory provisions grant you the right to demand information regarding the source of personal data stored about you, who it is received by and the purposes for which it is processed at any time. You also have the right to demand a copy of the personal data we have stored. Copies are provided free of charge as a matter of principle.
For reasons relating to data protection, information or a copy of the data shall only be provided once clear identification has been presented (for example, in the form of an ID or passport).
The right to information and the provision of copies does not apply to information provided by third parties for which there is an overriding private or public interest in maintaining its confidentiality.
You have a right to have your personal data that is being processed provided to you in a commonly used and machine-readable format. The data can also be transmitted to a third party on request.
If you discover, or are of the opinion, that the data concerning you that is being processed is incorrect or incomplete, you have the right to have this rectified.
You have the right to demand a restriction of the processing of your personal data. In this case, the data shall be blocked for further processing.
Your data will be blocked, and/or its processing will be restricted, in the following cases as well:
- For the duration of the review if you dispute the accuracy of the personal data we process
- If your personal data is being processed unlawfully
- If your personal data is no longer required for the original purpose but is required in order to ensure compliance with statutory retention obligations or in order to exercise, defend against or assert legal claims
If the legal basis for the processing of your personal data is our legitimate interest, you may object to said processing. We will comply with your request provided there are no overriding interests in a given case.
Personal data shall be retained for as long as it is required in order to fulfil our contractual and statutory obligations or for the purpose for which it is being processed. Data that is no longer required in order to fulfil contractual or statutory obligations shall be deleted. This does not apply to data that is subject to retention obligations, for example under commercial or tax law.
You may also request the deletion of your personal data at any time.
You have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority if you believe that your personal data is being processed in violation of data protection law. In Switzerland, you can contact the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner, Feldeggweg 1, CH-3003 Bern, wenden.
We reserve the right to continuously update our data protection practices and the present data privacy statement in response to any changes in the relevant statutory requirements or societal needs. We will notify you here of any changes in our data protection practices. Please pay attention to the current version data of the data privacy statement in this regard.
