The party responsible for data processing on this website is:
Tel +41 (0)27 921 1190
The responsible party is the natural or legal person that, alone or jointly with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, email addresses, etc.).
2.3 Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing processes can only be implemented based on your express consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal notification via e-mail. The lawfulness of data processing up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
2.4 Right to data portability
You have the right to have data which is processed by us based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract automatically delivered to yourself or to a third party in a commonly used and machine-readable format. If you require the direct transfer of data to another responsible party, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.
2.5 SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator.
You can recognize an encrypted connection in your browser’s address line as it changes from “http://” to “https://”, also displaying a lock icon in your browser line. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be accessed by third parties.

You have the right to receive free information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipients and the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data at any time within the scope of the applicable legal provisions.

4. Data collection on our website
4.2 Server log files
The provider of the website automatically collects and stores information by means of so-called server log files, which are automatically transmitted to us by your browser. These include:
- browser type and browser version
- operating system used
- referrer URL
- host name of the accessing computer
- time of the server request
- IP address
These data are not pooled with other data sources. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
4.3 Contact form
If you send us a request by using the contact form, the details including the contact data you entered will be stored for the purpose of processing your request and responding to potential follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your express consent.
The data entered in the contact form is therefore processed exclusively on the basis of your previously given consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal notification via e-mail. The lawfulness of data processing up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
All data you provided in the contact form will be stored by us until you request their deletion, your consent for storage is revoked or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected by this.
