The processing of personal data by the operator within the framework of this Internet presence is in accordance with the regulations of the Swiss Data Protection Act. The operator does not use active systems (spyware) to collect information about you. As a rule, you can access all pages of this website without providing any personal information. Exceptions are areas and services that naturally require your name, address or other personal data. Such personal data will only be used and stored for the purposes specified by the operator or resulting from the content of the website.

The operator reserves the right to keep limited records of the use of the website (for example IP address, date, time and pages viewed) for statistical analysis. However, no personal data will be used for this purpose.

Most of the documents made available on this website are PDF files (Portable Document Format). In order to view PDF files, you need Adobe®Reader®, which you can download free of charge from Adobe.

b. Confidentiality

Information received about users of the website is treated confidentially by the operator and will not be passed on to third parties without your consent, with the exception of passing on data to authorities on the basis of court decisions or in the case of criminal investigations. Should data be passed on to external service providers within the scope of commissioned data processing, these service providers are bound by the Data Protection Act and by contract to the present data protection provisions, in particular the obligation of confidentiality, of the operator.

c. Unencrypted transmission of data

We cannot guarantee that information or personal data transmitted to us unencrypted cannot be viewed by third parties.

d. Right to delete data

You have the right to request the operator not to use your personal data for further contact and/or to delete it. However, this does not affect data that is required for order processing or for commercial purposes. By deleting your personal data, you accept that personalized services can no longer be provided.

e. Obligation to retain

There is no general obligation on the part of the operator to retain your user data. It is primarily the responsibility of the user to keep the data relevant to him available. Depending on the type of data, the operator's storage obligations are limited to the mandatory legal storage obligations (archiving legislation and/or obligation to store receipts as part of commercial accounting).

f. Use of cookies

In cookies, text information is collected during an online session and stored in a special file in ASCII format (cookie.txt) on the user's hard drive. Where the cookie is stored on the user's hard drive is controlled by the user's Internet browser. Cookies are information that is sent back to the server during the next online visit. They can only be read by the server that previously stored them. The operator only uses cookies if they are urgently required for user functions or to facilitate navigation of the websites. The information is not made available to any third parties, as cookies are only used for the above-mentioned purposes. Most browsers are set to accept cookies automatically. However, this function can be deactivated in the browser at any time. You can set your browser to notify you as soon as cookies are sent.

g. Data collection in the context of online advertising

As a rule, the content pages of this website do not contain advertising space. In the contrary case, the advertising is placed via external ad servers. The data collected in connection with online advertising (AdImpressions, AdKlicks) are used exclusively for anonymous statistical analysis and for anonymous reporting to advertising customers. When online advertising is called up, cookies may be used without the operator having any influence on this.


The operator disclaims any liability for the content of third parties, which may be accessible via links and/or advertising space. Such links are provided by the operator for informational purposes only and are used by the user on his own responsibility. Insofar as illegal or immoral content is accessible via such links, the operator is grateful for corresponding information in order to then be able to take appropriate countermeasures.

Information on data processing in connection with Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited. If the data controller on this website is located outside the European Economic Area or Switzerland, Google Analytics data processing is carried out by Google LLC. Google LLC and Google Ireland Limited are hereinafter referred to as "Google".

Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on the computer of the site visitor, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website by the site visitor (including the shortened IP address) is usually transmitted to a Google server and stored there.

Google Analytics is used exclusively with the extension "_anonymizeIp()" on this website. This extension ensures anonymization of the IP address by shortening and excludes a direct personal reference. Through the extension, the IP address is shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by the corresponding browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

On behalf of the site operator, Google will use the resulting information to evaluate the use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the site operator (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). The legitimate interest in the data processing lies in the optimization of this website, the analysis of the use of the website and the adaptation of the content. The interests of the users are sufficiently protected by the pseudonymization.

Google LLC. provides a guarantee based on the standard contractual clauses to maintain an adequate level of data protection. The data sent and linked to cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 50 months. The deletion of data whose retention period has been reached takes place automatically once a month.

The collection by Google Analytics can be prevented by the site visitor adjusting the cookie settings for this website. The collection and storage of the IP address and the data generated by cookies can also be objected to at any time with effect for the future. The corresponding browser plugin can be downloaded and installed at the following link:

To protect your inquiries via Internet form, we use the service reCAPTCHA of the company Google LLC (Google). The query serves to distinguish whether the input is made by a human being or abusively by automated, machine processing. The query includes the sending of the IP address and possibly other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. For this purpose, your input is transmitted to Google and further used there. However, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted 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 transmitted by your browser as part of reCaptcha will not be merged with other data from Google. The deviating data protection regulations of the Google company apply to this data.
