With this Privacy Statement, we inform you which personal data we process in connection with our activities and operations, including our website. In particular, we provide information on what we process personal data for, how we process it and where we process it.

Additional and/or separate Privacy Statements, documents and General Terms and Conditions of the Administration of Rights (GTCAR) may apply to individual sectors (in particular in relation to rights holders, users and for the uses of online portals).

We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law such as, in particular, the Federal Data Protection Act (FADP) and the Ordinance to the Federal Data Protection Act (FDPA) [1].

[1]Liechtenstein law is applicable to persons in the Principality of Liechtenstein, in particular the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Personal data is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable person.

A person concerned is a person about whom personal data is processed.

Processing includes any handling of personal data, regardless of the means and procedures used, in particular the storage, disclosure, acquisition, collection, deletion, storage, modification, destruction and use of personal data.

We process the personal data that is necessary to carry out our activities and operations in a sustainable, user-friendly, secure and reliable manner. Such personal data may, in particular, include the categories of inventory and contact data, browser and device data, content data, meta or marginal data and usage data, location data, sales data and contract and payment data.

We process personal data for the duration that is required for the respective purpose(s) or by law. Personal data that no longer needs to be processed is anonymised or deleted. We may have personal data processed by third parties. We may process personal data jointly with third parties or transmit it to third parties. Such third parties are, in particular, specialised providers whose services we use. We also guarantee data protection for such third parties. We only process personal data with the consent of the person concerned unless the processing is permitted for other legal reasons. Processing without consent may be permissible, for example, for the performance of a contract with the person concerned and for corresponding pre-contractual measures, in order to safeguard our prevailing legitimate interests, because the processing is evident from the circumstances or after prior information.

In this scope, we process, in particular, information that a person concerned voluntarily provides when contacting us – for example by letter post, e-mail, instant messaging, contact form, social media or telephone – or when registering for a user account. We may store such information, for example, in an address book or with comparable tools. If we receive data about other persons, the transmitting persons are obliged to ensure data protection vis-à-vis these persons as well as to ensure the accuracy of this personal data.

We also process personal data that we receive from third parties, obtain from publicly available sources or collect in the course of our activities and operations, if and to the extent that such processing is permitted for legal reasons.
We process personal data about applicants to the extent necessary for assessing their suitability for an employment relationship or for the subsequent implementation of an employment contract. The necessary personal data ensues, in particular, from the information requested, for example in the context of a job advertisement. We also process personal data that applicants voluntarily disclose or make public.

We generally process personal data in Switzerland. However, we may also disclose or export personal data to other countries, in particular in order to process it or have it processed there. We may disclose personal data in states and territories where the law there ensures adequate data protection in the opinion of the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) or in accordance with a decision of the Swiss Federal Council. We may disclose personal data to countries whose laws do not ensure adequate data protection, provided that adequate data protection is guaranteed for other reasons (contractual agreement, standard data protection clauses or other appropriate warranties). By way of exception, we may export personal data to countries without adequate or appropriate data protection if special conditions under data protection law are met (express consent of the persons concerned, direct connection with the conclusion or performance of a contract, etc.).

Persons concerned have the rights in accordance with Swiss data protection law. These include the right to information as well as the right to correction, deletion or blocking of the personal data processed. We reserve the right to request a written application and proof of identity before providing information or making corrections.

Persons concerned also have a right of appeal to a competent supervisory authority. The supervisory authority for data protection in Switzerland is the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC).

We may use cookies. Cookies are data that are stored in the browser. Cookies can be stored in the browser temporarily as «session cookies» or for a certain period of time as so-called permanent cookies. «Session cookies» are automatically deleted when the browser is closed. Permanent cookies have a specific storage period. Cookies enable us, in particular, to recognise a browser the next time it visits our website and thus, for example, to measure the reach of our website. Cookies can be completely or partially deactivated and deleted at any time in the browser settings. Without cookies, our website may no longer be fully available. We actively request your express consent to the use of cookies – at least if and to the extent necessary.

Server log files: We may collect the following information for each access to our website, provided that this information is transmitted by your browser to our server infrastructure or can be determined by our web server: Date and time including time zone, Internet Protocol (IP) address, access status (HTTP status code), operating system including user interface and version, browser including language and version, individual sub-page of our website accessed including amount of data transferred, website last accessed in the same browser window (referer or referrer).

We may use tracking pixels (also known as web beacons) on our website. Tracking pixels – including those provided by third parties whose services we use – are small, usually invisible images that are automatically retrieved when you visit our website. With tracking pixels, the same information as in server log files can be collected.

We may be present on social media platforms and other online platforms in order to communicate with interested persons and to provide information about our activities and operations. In connection with such platforms, personal data may also be processed outside of Switzerland. The General Terms and Conditions (GTC) and Terms of Use as well as privacy statements and other provisions of the individual operators of such platforms also apply in each case. These provisions inform, in particular, about the rights of persons concerned directly vis-à-vis the respective platform, which includes, for example, the right to information.

We take suitable technical and organisational measures to ensure data security appropriate to the respective risk. However, we cannot guarantee absolute data security.

Access to our website is via transport encryption (SSL / TLS, in particular with the Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure, abbreviated HTTPS).

We use services provided by specialised third parties in order to carry out our activities and operations in a consistent, user-friendly, secure and reliable manner. With such services, we can, among other things, embed functions and content in our website. In the case of such embedding, the services used record the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of the users at least temporarily for technically imperative reasons.

For security, statistical and technical purposes, third parties whose services we use may process data related to our activities and operations in an aggregated, anonymised or pseudonymised manner. This is, for example, performance or usage data in order to be able to offer the respective service.

We use, in particular,

  • Google services (Google LLC, USA / Google Ireland Limited, Ireland for users in the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland) and Microsoft services (Microsoft Corporation, USA / Microsoft Ireland Operations Limited, Ireland) for users in the European Economic Area (EEA), the United Kingdom and Switzerland.
  • Services of Microsoft (Microsoft Corporation, USA / Microsoft Ireland Operations Limited (Ireland) for users in the European Economic Area (EEA), the United Kingdom and Switzerland.
  • Services from specialised third parties in order to make use of required digital infrastructure in connection with our activities and operations. These include, for example, hosting and storage services from selected providers. In particular, we use services from NovaTrend Services GmbH (Switzerland).
  • Services for audio and video conferencing in order to communicate online, in particular Zoom (Zoom Video Communications Inc., USA).
  • Third party services and plugins to embed features and content from social media platforms and to enable sharing of content on social media platforms and other ways, especially Facebook (social plugins), Instagram Platform and LinkedIn Consumer Solutions Platform.

We use extensions for our website in order to be able to use additional functions. In particular, we use Google reCAPTCHA and Jetpack.

We use services and programmes to determine how our online services are used. In this context, we can, for example, measure the success and reach of our activities and operations as well as the effect of third-party links to our website. We can also, for example, test and compare how different versions of our online services or parts of our online services are used. Based on the results of the performance and reach measurement, we can, in particular, correct errors, strengthen popular content or make improvements to our online services. When using services and programmes for performance and reach measurement, the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of individual users must be stored. IP addresses are always shortened in order to follow the principle of data economy through the corresponding pseudonymisation and thus to improve the data protection of users. When using services and programmes for performance and reach measurement, cookies may be used and user profiles may be created. User profiles include, for example, the pages visited or content viewed on our website, information on the size of the screen or browser window and the approximate location. As a matter of principle, user profiles are only created in a pseudonymous form. We do not use user profiles to identify individual users. Individual services of third parties with which users are registered can, at most, assign the use of our online services to the user account or user profile of the respective service. In particular, we use Google Analytics and Stats.

We recommend you check our privacy statement regularly. It will be updated as necessary and continuously adapted to the applicable legal situation.

Our privacy statement was created with the help of the data protection generator of Datenschutzpartner (
