1) Your personal data
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, your name, your address, your e-mail address or your IP address. Your personal data is used for the purpose of processing the services we offer or the contractual relationship that exists with you. We need your name and address in order to know who our contractual partner is, i.e. to whom we provide and invoice our services. We need your contact details (address, e-mail address and telephone number) in order to communicate with you.
2) Legal basis
Our registered office is in Switzerland and we are therefore primarily subject to the Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection (FADP) when handling personal data, in particular of persons resident in Switzerland. Furthermore, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the handling of personal data of citizens of the European Union.

If you contact us using a contact form, certain fields may be mandatory, for example first and last name, telephone number or e-mail address. Such mandatory fields are marked accordingly, for example with an asterisk (*), and may request personal data.

c) Cookies
We use cookies on our website. These are small text files that are stored permanently or temporarily on your computer’s hard disk when you visit our website. These cookies do not damage your computer’s hard disk, nor do they contain viruses, Trojans or other malware.
The purpose of these cookies is in particular the statistical evaluation of the use of our website. Data collected through the setting of cookies is pseudonymized by technical precautions. It is no longer possible to assign the data to the calling user. The data is not stored or linked together with other personal data.
You can deactivate all or some of the cookies on our website in your browser at any time. If cookies are deactivated, you may no longer be able to use all the functions of our website.
d) Google Ads
We use the online web program “Google Ads” on our website, a service of Google Inc. based in the USA, and the conversion tracking option contained in this program. If you reach our website via a Google ad, Google Ads places a conversion cookie in your browser, which enables us to compile statistics on the use of our website.

We use “Google Analytics” on our website, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. based in the USA. Google Analytics also uses the cookies already described.

Based on this stored data, no conclusions can be drawn about your person. This information may be transferred to third parties if they process the data on behalf of Google.
Under no circumstances will the IP address be associated with other data relating to the user. This website uses an add-on for Google Analytics, with which the IP address of the Internet connection is shortened and anonymized by Google.
We also use remarketing lists from Google Analytics. With remarketing lists, visitors to our website can be addressed again through targeted advertising on the pages of the Google partner network and the Google search network. Advertising is also displayed using cookies.

You can object to the collection by Google Analytics at any time. To do this, you must download and install a browser add-on from the link This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information on website visits may be transmitted to Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated, it can be reinstalled or reactivated.
