1. Collection, processing and use of personal data
We do not collect any personal data from you when you visit this website. Personal data is only collected if you provide it to us yourself via our contact form. This data will only be used to respond to your request and can be deleted upon request.
2. Use of own cookies
When calling up certain pages, a so-called “session cookie” is set. This is a small text file that is automatically deleted from your computer at the end of the browser session. The sole purpose of this file is to enable you to use certain applications. You can change the settings of most web browsers so that your browser does not accept new cookies or you can have received cookies deleted. How this works specifically for your browser can usually be found out via its help function.
3. Server log files
As with any connection to a web server, the server of our web hosting provider Metanet in Zurich, Switzerland, logs and stores certain technical data. This data includes the IP address and the operating system of your device, the data, the access time, the type of browser and the browser request including the origin of the request (referrer). This is necessary for technical reasons to provide you with our website. The web hosting provider protects this data from unauthorized access using technical and organizational measures and does not pass it on to third parties. To the extent that we process personal data in the process, we do so based on our interest in providing you with the best possible user experience and ensuring the security and stability of our systems.
4. SSL Encryption
This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests that you send to us as site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
5. Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site.
Google uses this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to 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 other data from Google.
You can prevent the storage of cookies or delete them again by making the appropriate setting in your browser.
If you have registered for our newsletter with your e-mail address, we store and use your e-mail address for sending our newsletter with information and advertising about us until you have unsubscribed from our newsletter.
For our newsletter service, we use the “Mailchimp” newsletter service provided by Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000 Atlanta, GA 30308.
When you enter your e-mail address to receive the newsletter, it is initially stored by MailChimp for the purpose of sending the owner an e-mail in which he/she can confirm the subscription to the newsletter mailing (“double opt-in”). After such confirmation, the email address is stored permanently at MailChimp until the owner has unsubscribed from receiving the newsletter or it is deleted by us. MailChimp stores the date of registration as well as the IP address under which the registration took place. There is no further use of the owner’s IP address.
We would like to point out that the data collected and used via MailChimp is stored and processed on computers in the USA. With your consent to receive our newsletter, you agree to this. In addition, we have concluded a data processing contract with MailChimp based on EU standard contractual clauses. Your e-mail address will not be passed on to third parties in any other way.
You can unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time. An unsubscribe link is included in every email with our newsletter. You can also revoke your consent to the use of your e-mail address for the future at any time. To do so, please use the contact options below.
