Legal basis for personal data processing
As a legal basis for the processing of personal data we rely mainly on our legitimate interests in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR for the implementation of our business processes and targeted information of potential customers. This includes regularly expected cookies that allow us to display content that is interesting to the user. Furthermore, we process personal data on the basis of our legitimate interest in recognizing and avoiding spam. You have the right at any time - for reasons arising from your particular situation - to object to the processing of your personal data that is based on Article 6 (1)(f) GDPR.
For the fulfillment of our contractual obligations with the user, Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR applies as the legal basis. When contacting us (e.g. Email, phone) we will process the user's information under Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR.
We also process personal data in order to comply with our legal obligations in accordance with Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR.
When processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person, Article 6 (1) GDPR will be used as the legal basis.
In individual cases, we will obtain your consent in accordance with Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR for processing.
Duration of data storage
The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or access restricted as soon as the purpose of the processing is fulfilled, or storage is no longer required. We also store personal data for the period in which claims can be brought against our company.
Longer storage periods may apply when we are legally obligated to store your personal data for a prescribed period. Such storage obligations are for example derived from the German Civil and Commercial Law (BGB, HGB). The storage of usage data and cookies (including IP addresses) from the website is limited to the period for which they are required to ensure safe operation of the website.
Transfers to third countries
In most cases, your personal data will only be processed within Switzerland and the EU. If however, processing abroad in non-EU countries takes place, any transfer is carried out in accordance with Article 44 GDPR. This means processing is carried out, for example on the basis of special guarantees, such as the officially recognized determination of a data protection level corresponding to the EU or Switzerland (e.g. for the USA by the «Privacy Shield») or compliance with officially recognized contractual obligations (so-called «standard contractual clauses»).
Every time you access our website, usage data is transmitted through your internet browser and stored in log data (server log files).
