General / Introduction
In accordance with Article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution and the data protection provisions of the Swiss Confederation (Data Protection Act, DSG), every individual has the right to the protection of their privacy and their personal data against misuse. The operators of this website take the safeguarding of your personal data very seriously. We handle your personal data confidentially and in compliance with the legal data protection regulations and this privacy policy.
In collaboration with our hosting providers, we make every effort to ensure the utmost protection of the databases against unauthorized access, loss, misuse, or falsification.
Please be aware that data transmission over the Internet (e.g., communication via email) may have security vulnerabilities. Complete protection of data from access by third parties is not feasible.
By using this website, you consent to the collection, processing, and use of data as described below. This website can generally be visited without requiring registration. Data, such as pages accessed and names of accessed files, along with date and time, are stored on the server for statistical purposes without direct association with your personal identity. Personal data, including name, address, or email address, is collected on a voluntary basis to the extent possible. Without your consent, this data will not be shared with third parties.
Processing of Personal Data
Personal data refers to any information related to an identified or identifiable person. A data subject is a person about whom personal data is processed. Processing encompasses any handling of personal data, regardless of the means and procedures employed, including but not limited to storage, disclosure, acquisition, deletion, modification, storage, destruction, and use of personal data.
We process personal data in compliance with Swiss data protection laws. Additionally, when the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies, we process personal data in accordance with the following legal bases as set forth in Article 6(1) of the GDPR:
lit. a) Processing of personal data with the consent of the data subject.
lit. b) Processing of personal data for the fulfillment of a contract with the data subject as well as for the implementation of corresponding pre-contractual measures.
lit. c) Processing of personal data for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which we are subject under any applicable law of the EU or under any applicable law of a country in which the GDPR is applicable in whole or in part.
lit. d) Processing of personal data in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person.
lit. f) Processing of personal data to protect the legitimate interests of us or of third parties, unless the fundamental freedoms and rights and interests of the data subject are overridden. Legitimate interests include, in particular, our business interest in being able to provide our website, information security, the enforcement of our own legal claims and compliance with Swiss law.
We process personal data for the duration required for the respective purpose or purposes. In cases where longer-term retention is mandated by legal or other obligations to which we are subject, we adjust our processing accordingly.

With SSL/TLS Encryption
This website employs SSL/TLS encryption for security purposes, safeguarding the transmission of sensitive content, including the requests you send to us as the site operator. You can identify an encrypted connection when the address line in your browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the presence of a lock symbol in your browser's address bar.
When SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you send to us becomes inaccessible to third parties, ensuring its confidentiality.
Third-Party Services
This website may utilize several services provided by Google LLC, an American company, including Google Maps for embedding maps, Google Invisible reCAPTCHA for protection against bots and spam, and YouTube for embedding videos.

Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited. If the data controller for this website is located outside the European Economic Area or Switzerland, Google Analytics data processing is conducted by Google LLC. Hereinafter, Google LLC and Google Ireland Limited will be collectively referred to as "Google."
The statistics we obtain through Google Analytics help us enhance our offerings and make them more engaging for you as a user. This website also employs Google Analytics for cross-device analysis of visitor traffic, carried out using a user ID. If you have a Google user account, you can disable cross-device analysis of your usage in the settings under "My Data" and "Personal Data."
The legal basis for using Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. The IP address sent by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. We want to highlight that on this website, Google Analytics has been extended with the code "_anonymizeIp()" to ensure the anonymized collection of IP addresses. This means that IP addresses are processed in a shortened form, making it impossible to link them to a specific individual. In cases where data collected about you is connected to an individual, such data is immediately excluded, and personal information is promptly deleted.
Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the website operator to assess your website usage, compile reports on website activity, and provide other services related to website activity and internet usage. In exceptional instances where personal data is transferred to the USA, Google complies with the EU-US Privacy Shield, as detailed at https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
Google Analytics employs cookies. Typically, information generated by the cookie about your website usage is sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. You can decline the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser, though please be aware that this might limit your ability to use all the features of this website.
Google WebFonts
This website utilizes web fonts provided by Google to ensure consistent font displays. When you access a page, your browser downloads the necessary web fonts into its cache to display text and fonts accurately. If your browser does not support web fonts, your computer will use a standard font.
For additional information about Google Web Fonts, you can visit https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and refer to Google's privacy policy at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.
Adobe Fonts
We employ Adobe Fonts for the visual design of our website. Adobe Fonts is a service provided by Adobe Systems Incorporated, located at 345 Park Avenue, San Jose, CA 95110-2704, USA. This service grants us access to a font library. To incorporate the fonts we use, your browser establishes a connection to an Adobe server in the USA and downloads the necessary font for our website. This process informs Adobe that our website was accessed from your IP address.
For further details about Adobe Fonts, please refer to Adobe's privacy policy, which you can access here: https://www.adobe.com/privacy/policy.html.
Agency Services
We process customer data in compliance with data protection regulations such as the Federal Data Protection Act (DSG) and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) as part of our contractual services. This includes processing various types of data, including:

Data is deleted upon the expiration of legal warranty and similar obligations. We periodically review the necessity of data retention, and in the case of legal archiving obligations, data is deleted following their expiration. For data provided to us by the client within the context of an order, we delete the data according to the order's specifications, typically after the order has been fulfilled.
