General and Introduction
In collaboration with our hosting providers, we strive to protect the databases as effectively as possible from unauthorized access, loss, misuse, or tampering.
Please be aware that data transmission over the internet (e.g., when communicating via email) may have security vulnerabilities. A complete safeguard against third-party access to data is not possible.
By using this website, you agree to the collection, processing, and use of data as described below. This website can generally be visited without registration. Data such as accessed pages or names of accessed files, date, and time are stored on the server for statistical purposes without these data being directly related to your person. As far as personal data (e.g., name, address, or email addresses) are collected on our pages, this is done, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis. This data will not be disclosed to third parties without your explicit consent.
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 methods used, in particular the storage, disclosure, acquisition, deletion, retention, alteration, destruction, and use of personal data.
We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law. If and to the extent that the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is applicable, we also process personal data on the following legal grounds in connection with Art. 6, para. 1 GDPR:
a) Processing of personal data with the data subject's consent.
b) Processing of personal data for the performance of a contract with the data subject or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.
c) Processing of personal data to fulfill a legal obligation to which we are subject under applicable EU law or the law of a country in which the GDPR is wholly or partially applicable.
d) Processing of personal data to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person.
f) Processing of personal data for the purposes of our legitimate interests or those of third parties, except where such interests are overridden by the fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject. Our legitimate interests include, in particular, our business interest in being able to provide our website, information security, the enforcement of our legal claims, and compliance with Swiss law.
We process personal data for the duration necessary for the respective purpose or purposes. In the case of longer retention obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we restrict processing accordingly.
With SSL/TLS Encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as inquiries you send to us as the site operator, this website uses SSL/TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the change in the address line of your browser from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser bar.
When SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

The provider of this website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files that your browser automatically sends to us. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Hostname of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
These data cannot be attributed to specific individuals. This data will not be merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data subsequently if we become aware of specific indications of unlawful use.

This website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you have reached our website via an ad from Google, Google Ads will place a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad delivered by Google Ads. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. If the user visits certain pages on our website and the cookie has not expired, we and Google can recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page. Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be tracked across the websites of Google Ads customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Google Ads customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users.
If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can opt out of this by easily disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie via your Internet browser under User Preferences. You will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. If you would like to opt out of interest-based advertising, you can use the settings and opt-out options provided by Google: Ad Settings.
Please note that you must not delete the opt-out cookies if you do not wish measurement data to be recorded. If you have deleted all your cookies in the browser, you must set the respective opt-out cookie again.
This website uses the remarketing function of Google Inc. This function is used to present interest-based advertising to website visitors within the Google advertising network. A so-called "cookie" is stored in the website visitor's browser, allowing the visitor to be recognized when visiting websites that belong to the Google advertising network. On these pages, the visitor may be presented with advertising related to content previously accessed by the visitor on websites using Google's remarketing function.
This website uses the reCAPTCHA service provided by Google Ireland Limited. The purpose of this service is to distinguish whether data input is done by a human or an automated machine. To achieve this, your input may be transmitted to Google, including your IP address and other data needed for the reCAPTCHA service. Google will process the data in this regard. However, your IP address is shortened within member states of the European Union or other states that are parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transmission to Google. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this service. The IP address provided by reCAPTCHA from your browser will not be merged with other data from Google. Your data may also be transmitted to the USA. There is an adequacy decision by the European Commission for data transfers to the USA, known as the "Privacy Shield." Google participates in the Privacy Shield and is subject to its requirements. By using the reCAPTCHA service, you agree to the processing of your data. The processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR through your consent. You may revoke your consent at any time without affecting the legality of the processing that occurred based on your consent before its revocation.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited. If the responsible party for data processing on this website is located outside the European Economic Area or Switzerland, then processing of data associated with Google Analytics will be carried out by Google LLC. Google LLC and Google Ireland Limited will hereinafter be referred to as "Google."
The statistics obtained allow us to improve our services and make them more interesting for you as a user. This website uses Google Analytics for a cross-device analysis of visitor traffic, which is done through a user ID. If you have a Google user account, you can deactivate cross-device analysis of your usage in your account settings under "My Data," "Personal Data."
In addition, you can prevent the collection of data generated by cookies and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: Google Analytics Browser Plugin.
Please note that if you delete cookies in your browser, this will result in the opt-out cookie also being deleted, so you will need to activate it again.
We use Google AdSense on this website, which is an advertising program provided by Google Inc. In Europe, Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services. Google AdSense allows us to display ads on this website that are relevant to our content.
By using marketing tools, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to Google's server. By integrating Google Ads, Google receives information that you have accessed the relevant part of our website or clicked on an ad from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can associate the visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is a possibility that Google may obtain and store your IP address.
You can prevent participation in this tracking process in various ways:
- By adjusting your browser settings accordingly; in particular, this prevents the setting of third-party cookies, so you will not receive ads from third-party providers.
- By disabling conversion tracking cookies by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain "www.googleadservices.com," https://adssettings.google.com. However, this setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies.
- By disabling interest-based advertising from providers that are part of the "About Ads" self-regulation campaign using https://www.aboutads.info/choices, which will also be deleted when you delete your cookies.
- By permanently deactivating it in your browsers Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Google Chrome via the link https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. Please note that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this offer to their full extent.
The legal basis for the processing of your data is a balancing of interests, according to which the processing of your personal data described above does not conflict with your predominant interests (Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR). Further information about Google Ads from Google can be found at Google Ads, and more information about data protection at Google in general can be found at Google Privacy.

Online Shop / Web Shop
We process our customers' data in compliance with the data protection regulations of the Federal Data Protection Act (Datenschutzgesetz, DSG) and the EU GDPR within the framework of the order processes in our online shop to enable them to select and order the selected products and services, as well as to pay for and deliver or process them.
The processed data includes master data (inventory data), communication data, contract data, payment data, and the persons affected by the processing include our customers, prospective customers, and other business partners. Processing is carried out for the purpose of providing contractual services in the operation of an online shop, billing, delivery, and customer service.

Processing is carried out based on Art. 6(1) lit. b (implementation of order processes) and c (legally required archiving) GDPR. The data that has been marked as necessary is required for the establishment and fulfillment of the contract. We only pass on the data to third parties as part of the delivery, payment, or within the scope of legal permissions and obligations. The data is only processed in third countries if this is necessary for the fulfillment of the contract (e.g., at the customer's request for delivery or payment).
Users can optionally create a user account, in which they can view their orders in particular. The users are provided with the necessary mandatory information as part of the registration process. User accounts are not public and cannot be indexed by search engines, such as Google. If users have terminated their user account, their data in relation to the user account will be deleted, unless their retention is required for commercial or tax reasons according to Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. Information in the customer account remains until it is deleted with subsequent archiving in the event of a legal obligation. It is the responsibility of the users to store their data before the end of the contract.
During registration and re-registration and when using our online services, we store the IP address and the time of the respective user action. The storage is based on our legitimate interests, as well as the user's protection against misuse and other unauthorized use. These data will generally not be passed on to third parties, unless it is necessary to pursue our claims or there is a legal obligation according to Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR.
Deletion takes place after the expiry of legal warranty and comparable obligations, the necessity of data retention is reviewed at irregular intervals. In the case of legal archiving obligations, deletion takes place after their expiry.
We process data of our contractual partners, prospective clients, and other clients, customers, clients, or contractual partners (collectively referred to as "contractual partners") in accordance with the data protection regulations of the Swiss Federal Data Protection Act (DSG) and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. GDPR to provide them with our contractual or pre-contractual services. The data processed in this context, the type, scope, and purpose as well as the necessity of their processing, are determined by the underlying contractual relationship. Processed data includes the master data of our contractual partners (e.g., names and addresses), contact data (e.g., email addresses and phone numbers), contract data (e.g., services used, contract contents, contract communication, names of contact persons), and payment data (e.g., We generally do not process special categories of personal data unless they are part of an order or contract execution.
We process data required for the establishment and fulfillment of contractual services and point out the necessity of their disclosure unless it is evident to the contractual partners. Data is only disclosed to external individuals or companies if it is required within the scope of a contract. When processing data that is disclosed to us in the context of an order, we act according to the instructions of the client and the legal requirements.
In the course of using our online services, we can store the IP address and the time of the respective user action. Storage is based on our legitimate interests, as well as the user's interest in protection against misuse and other unauthorized use.

GDPR is required, or there is a legal obligation to do so under Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c. GDPR.
Data will be deleted when the data is no longer required to fulfill contractual or legal obligations, and the necessity of retaining the data is reviewed at irregular intervals. Statutory retention obligations remain unaffected.
Administration, Accounting, etc.
We process data in accordance with the data protection regulations of the Swiss Confederation (Federal Data Protection Act, DSG) and the EU GDPR as part of administrative tasks and the organization of our business, financial accounting, and compliance with legal obligations, such as archiving.

Customers, prospective clients, business partners, and website visitors are affected by the processing. The purpose and our interest in processing lie in administration, financial accounting, office organization, data archiving, i.e., tasks that serve the maintenance of our business activities, the performance of our duties, and the provision of our services. Deletion of data in terms of contractual services and contractual communication corresponds to the information given in these processing activities.
