We have created this privacy statement in order to explain to you, in accordance with the requirements of the EU Data Protection Basic Regulation, what information we collect, how we use data and what choices you have as a visitor to this website.
Unfortunately, it is in the nature of these statements to sound very technical, but we have tried to make them as simple and clear as possible.
Automatic data storage
When you visit websites today, certain information is automatically generated and stored, including on this website.
When you visit our website as you are doing now, our web server (computer on which this website is stored) automatically stores data such as the IP address of your device, the addresses of the pages visited, details of your browser (e.g. Chrome, Firefox, Edge,...) and date and time. We do not use this data and generally do not pass it on, but we cannot rule out the possibility that this data may be viewed in the event of unlawful conduct.
Storage of personal data
Personal data that you provide to us electronically on this website, such as your name, address, email address or other personal information in connection with the submission of a form or blog comments, will be used by us together with the time and IP address only for the specified purpose, securely stored and not disclosed to third parties.
We therefore only use your personal data for communication with visitors who expressly wish to contact us and for processing the services and products offered on this website. We do not pass on your personal data without your consent, but we cannot rule out the possibility that this data may be viewed in the event of unlawful conduct.
If you send us personal data by email - i.e. outside of this website - we cannot guarantee the secure transmission and protection of your data. We recommend that you never send confidential data unencrypted by email.
In principle, you are entitled to the rights to information, correction, deletion, restriction, data transferability, revocation and objection. If you believe that the processing of your data violates the data protection law or your data protection claims have otherwise been violated in any way, you can complain to the supervisory authority. In Switzerland, this is the data protection authority, whose website can be found at www.edoeb.admin.ch.
TLS encryption with https
We use https to transmit data securely over the Internet. Through the use of TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for secure data transmission on the Internet, we can ensure the protection of confidential data. You can recognize the use of this data transmission security by the small lock symbol in the upper left corner of the browser and the use of the https schema as part of our Internet address.
Our website uses HTTP cookies to store user-specific data.
A cookie is a short piece of data that is exchanged between a web browser and a web server, but is completely meaningless to the web server and only takes on a meaning for the web application, e.g. an online shop, such as the content of a virtual shopping basket.
There are two types of cookies: first-party cookies are created by our website, and third-party cookies are created by other websites (such as Google Analytics).
There are three categories of cookies: cookies that are essential to ensure the basic functionality of the website, functional cookies to ensure the performance of the website, and targeted cookies to improve the user experience.
If you do not wish this, you can set your browser so that it informs you when cookies are set and you only allow this in individual cases.
We use Google Maps of the company Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) on our website.
By using the functions of this map, data is
transferred to Google. You can find out which data is collected by Google and
what this data is used for at https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/
Our concern in the sense of the DSGVO is the improvement of our offer and our web appearance. Since the privacy of our users is important to us, the user data is pseudonymised. Data processing is based on the statutory provisions of § 96 Para. 3 TKG and Art. 6 EU-DSGVO Para. 1 lit a (consent) and/or f (legitimate interest) of the DSGVO.

Google Analytics Supplement for data processing

Google Analytics IP anonymization
We have implemented the IP address anonymization of Google Analytics on this website. This feature was developed by Google to enable this website to comply with applicable data protection laws and the recommendations of local data protection authorities when they prohibit the storage of the full IP address. IP anonymization or masking occurs when IP addresses arrive on the Google Analytics data collection network and before the data is stored or processed .
For more information on IP anonymization, please visit https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2763052?hl=en .
Google Analytics reports on demographics and interests
We've turned on advertising reporting in Google Analytics. The demographic and interest reports include age, gender, and interests. This allows us to get a better picture of our users without being able to associate this data with individual persons. You can find out more about the advertising functions at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/3450482?hl=en_AT&utm_id=ad .
