Collecting general information when visiting our website

If you access our website, that is, if you do not register or otherwise provide information, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider, your IP address and the like. This is only information that does not allow conclusions about your person.

They are processed in particular for the following purposes:

  • Ensuring a trouble-free connection of the website.
  • Ensuring a smooth use of our website.
  • Evaluation of system security and stability as well.
  • For further administrative purposes.

We do not use your information to draw conclusions about you. Information of this kind may be statistically evaluated to optimize our website and the underlying technology.

The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR based on our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.

The website is hosted by Swisscenter. In case of technical problems we ask you to contact us by mail or phone.

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of the survey. This is basically the case for data that serves to provide the website when the session has ended.

The provision of the aforementioned personal data is neither legally nor contractually required. Without the IP address, however, the service and functionality of our website is not guaranteed. Additionally, individual services may not be available or limited. For this reason, a contradiction is excluded.

Cookies

Like many other websites, we also use so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. This automatically gives us certain data, such as IP address, browser used, operating system and your connection to the Internet.

Cookies can not be used to launch programs or to transfer viruses to a computer. Based on the information contained in cookies, we can facilitate navigation and enable the correct display of our website.

In no case will the data collected by us be passed on to third parties or a link with personal data will be established without your consent.
