Privacy Policy


Based on article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution, the federal data protection provisions (Federal Act on Data Protection, FADP) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union, each person has the right to privacy and to protection from misuse of their personal data.

I comply with these provisions. Personal data is treated in strict confidence and neither sold nor forwarded to third parties without your consent.


 

1 Data Collection

In cooperation with my hosting provider, I strive to protect the databases as much as possible from outside access, data loss, misuse or fraud.

When accessing my website, the following data is stored in log files:

  • IP address
  • date and time
  • browser type and version
  • operating system
  • referrer URL (website from which you’re accessing from)
  • service provider

This usage data, which is not directly attributable to specific persons, forms the basis for statistical evaluations, so that trends can be identified with which I can improve my services accordingly.

This data, as well as all data of this website, is stored with my hosting provider Hostpoint AG, Neue Jonastrasse 60, 8640 Rapperswil-Jona, Switzerland.

2 SSL Encryption

To protect the security of your data during transmission, I use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) via HTTPS encryption methods. The data you transmit to me cannot be read by third parties.

3 Cookies

I use cookies to optimise the use of this website.

Cookies are small text files that websites you visit are stored on your computer. Most cookies are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your computer until you delete them and allow website operators to recognise your computer again by revisiting their website.

Normally your browser accepts cookies automatically. You can change the preference of your browser so that cookies don’t get accepted at all or only with your compliance and that all cookies get deleted from your computer through your browser at any time.

By using this website you agree that cookies are stored on your computer. You can use this website without cookies, but some functions may be potentially limited.

4 Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. (“Google”).

Google Analytics uses “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer to help analyse your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is normally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

The activated IP anonymisation on this website truncates your IP address by Google within member states of the European Union or other parties to 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 truncated there.

Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website in order to compile reports about the website activities for the website operator and in order to provide additional services relating to website activity and internet use. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.
Google will not link the IP address transferred by your browser as part of Google Analytics with any other data held by Google.

You can prevent the installation of cookies with a corresponding setting in your browser software. However, I point out that in this case you may not be able to use all features of this website to the full extent.

By using this website you agree to Google processing the data collected about you in the manner described above and for the purpose named above. This data is stored indefinitely.

You can prevent Google from collecting and processing the data generated by the cookie and relating it to your use of the website by clicking on the following link: Google Analytics Opt-out

5 Google Fonts

This website uses Google Fonts. To the best of my knowledge, no personal data is stored by Google. For technical reasons your IP address must be transmitted to Google so that the fonts can be transferred to your computer and displayed in your browser.

6 Contact Form and Email Address

If you send me a message via the contact form or the contact email address, all information including your IP address will be sent to and stored in my email client for processing the request. Private messages will be stored for five (5) years and business messages for ten (10) years due to retention periods under tax and commercial law. I will not pass this data on to third parties without your consent unless required to do so by law.

7 Information/Revocation/Deletion

You have the right, at any time and free of charge, to access information about your stored personal data, its origins and recipients and the purpose for its processing, as well as the right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data, provided that this claim does not conflict with a legal obligation to retain data.
