1. Limitation of liability
The contents of this website are prepared with the utmost care. However, the provider does not accept any responsibility for the contents made available being correct, complete and up to date. Use of the website’s contents is at the user’s own risk. Contributions designated by name express the respective author’s opinion and not always the provider’s. Mere use of the provider’s website does not establish a contractual relationship of any kind between the user and the provider.
2. External Links
This website contains links to third-party websites (“external links”). These websites are subject to the respective operators’ liability. The provider inspected the third party contents for any possible legal violations when setting up the external link for the first time. No legal violations were found at that time. The provider has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design or content of the linked sites. The inclusion of external links does not mean that the provider has adopted the contents of the reference or the link as its own. Constant monitoring of these external links by the provider without specific indications of legal violations is not feasible. Nevertheless, such external links are deleted immediately in the event of known legal violations.
3. Copyright and ancillary copyright
The contents published on this website are subject to Swiss copyright law. Any utilisation not permitted by Swiss copyright law shall require the prior written consent of the provider or of the respective holder of rights. This applies in particular to the duplication, editing, translation, storage, processing or reproduction of contents in databases or other electronic media and systems. Third-party contents and rights are designated as such. Unauthorised duplication or transmission of individual contents or complete pages is not permitted and is liable to prosecution. Only the production of copies and downloads for one’s personal, private and non-commercial use is allowed. The display of this website in third-party frames is only permissible with authorisation in writing.
4. Data protection
We collect, store and edit your personal data for the provision of our services, for the processing and maintenance of the customer relationship, to ensure a high quality of service, for the safety of operation and infrastructure, for invoicing, and for marketing purposes. We store and process personal data in our own data centres in Switzerland.
1) Website use
You can subscribe to a free newsletter through our website. The data from the contact form is transmitted to us when you subscribe to the newsletter. If you provide your contact data in other ways (e.g. in the form of business cards, oral or written queries to us, etc.), we may then use them to send a newsletter. We will not disclose your information to third parties. The subscription to the newsletter can be cancelled by the user at any time. For this purpose, a corresponding link can be found in every newsletter and on our website. The user’s email address will therefore be stored for as long as the newsletter subscription is active. The newsletter will be sent using the MailChimp email delivery service provider. The data protection regulations of the email delivery service provider can be viewed here: mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/. The newsletters contain a “web-beacon”, i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the server when opening the newsletter from our server or that of our email delivery service provider. During the download, technical information such as your browser and operating system, as well as your IP address and the time of the download, are collected. This information is used for technical improvement of the service, as technical data or target group data can be analysed according to their reading behaviour, their download locations (identifiable through IP addresses), or download times. Statistical data collection also includes an analysis of whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked on. Although this information technically allows the tracking of individual newsletter recipients, we are not interested in monitoring the behaviour of individual users. More importantly, data analysis is used to recognise patterns in the reading behaviour of our users, and to adapt contents accordingly or send different content according to the interests of our users.
(3) Business-related storage of data
We process personal data in order to fulfil our contractual obligations and to ensure a high quality of service, billing, to maintain our customer relationship, to further develop our services, to ensure the safety of the operation and infrastructure, and to get in contact with you. This data relates to our customers, suppliers, prospective customers and their employees. Furthermore, we store information regarding potential suppliers, potential customers, event organisers and other business partners on the basis of our business interests. The information is stored in a customer relationship management system (CRM system) and, if required by the order, in our order processing system (ERP system) and by the financial department. The purpose of the data processing is – among other things – for customer acquisition, e.g. to make contact, maintain relationships with customers, suppliers and other business partners, to provide contractual services, maintenance and support services, and to issue invoices for our services. We process data which is necessary to justify and fulfil the contractual services. In principle, we store this data, which is mainly company-related, permanently. We disclose or transmit data to consultants such as tax advisers, our audit department, and any payment service providers. We disclose your information to government agencies only when legally mandated to do so.
In the event that special terms and conditions for individual instances of utilisation of this website deviate from paragraphs 1 to 4 stated above, this will be explicitly referred to at the respective point. In such an event, the special terms and conditions of use will apply in the respective individual case.
