General / Introduction
In cooperation with our hosting providers, we strive to protect the databases as much as possible from unauthorized access, loss, misuse or falsification.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
By using this website, you consent to the collection, processing and use of data as described below. In principle, this website can be visited without registration. Data such as pages accessed or names of files accessed, date and time are stored on the server for statistical purposes without this data being directly related to your person. Insofar as personal data (for example name, address or e-mail addresses) is collected on our pages, this is always done on a voluntary basis as far as possible. This data will not be disclosed to third parties without your express consent.
Processing of personal data
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual. A data subject is a person about whom personal data are processed. Processing includes any handling of personal data, regardless of the means and procedures used, in particular the storage, disclosure, acquisition, deletion, retention, modification, destruction and use of personal data.
We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law. If and to the extent that the EU GDPR is applicable, we also process personal data on the following legal bases in connection with Art. 6 (1) GDPR:
lit. a) Processing of personal data with the consent of the data subject.
lit. b) processing of personal data for the performance of a contract with the data subject and for the implementation of corresponding pre-contractual measures.
lit. c) processing of personal data for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject under applicable EU law or the applicable law of a country in which the GDPR applies in whole or in part.
lit. d) processing of personal data for the purpose of protecting the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person.
lit. f) processing of personal data to protect the legitimate interests of us or of third parties, unless the fundamental freedoms and rights and interests of the data subject override these. Legitimate interests include, in particular, our business interest in being able to provide our website, information security, the enforcement of our own legal claims and compliance with Swiss law.
We process personal data for the duration required for the respective purpose or purposes. In the case of longer-term retention obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we restrict processing accordingly.
With SSL/TLS encryption
This website uses SSL/TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as inquiries that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the browser address bar changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser bar.
When SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Server log files
The provider of this website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
Browser type and version
Operating system used
Host name of the accessing computer
Time of the server request
This data cannot be assigned to specific persons. This data is not merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of specific indications of unlawful use.
Third party services
This website may use Google Maps to embed maps, Google Invisible reCAPTCHA to protect against bots and spam, and YouTube to embed videos.
These services of the American Google LLC use, among other things, cookies, whereby data is transferred to Google in the USA, whereby we assume that no personal tracking takes place in this context solely through the use of our website.
Google has committed to providing adequate data protection in accordance with the U.S.-European Privacy Shield and the U.S.-Swiss Privacy Shield.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, the information you provide in the inquiry form, including the contact data you enter there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not share this data without your consent.

IP address storage
Our comment function stores the IP addresses of users who post comments. Since we do not check the comments on our site before they are activated, we need this data to be able to take action against the author in the event of legal violations such as insults or propaganda.

The copyright and all other rights to the content, images, photos or other files on the website belong exclusively to the operator of this website or the named rights holders. For the reproduction of all files, the written consent of the copyright holders must be obtained in advance.
Anyone who commits copyright infringement without the consent of the respective copyright holder may be liable to prosecution and, under certain circumstances, to claims for damages.
All information on our website has been carefully checked. We make every effort to ensure that the information we provide is current, accurate and complete. Nevertheless, the occurrence of errors cannot be completely ruled out, so that we cannot guarantee the completeness, correctness and up-to-dateness of the information, including journalistic and editorial information.

The publisher may change or delete texts at its own discretion and without prior notice and is not obliged to update the contents of this website. The use of or access to this website is at the visitor’s own risk. The publisher, its customers or partners are not responsible for any damages, such as direct, indirect, incidental or consequential damages, allegedly caused by visiting this website and consequently do not assume any liability for such damages.
The publisher also assumes no responsibility or liability for the content and availability of third-party websites that can be accessed via external links from this website. The operators of the linked pages are solely responsible for their content. The publisher therefore expressly distances itself from all third-party content that may be relevant under criminal or liability law or that may offend common decency.
This website uses the offer of Google Maps. This allows us to display interactive maps directly on the website and enable you to comfortably use the map function. By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding sub-page of our website. This happens regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether there is no user account. If you are logged in to Google, your data is directly assigned to your account. If you do not want the assignment to your profile at Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for the provision of tailored advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact Google to exercise this right. For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by Google, as well as further information on your rights in this regard and settings options for protecting your privacy, please visit: www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.
This website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you have reached our website via an ad placed by Google, Google Ads will set a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked across Ads clients’ websites. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for Ads customers who have opted in to conversion tracking. Clients learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive information that can be used to personally identify users.
If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can refuse the setting of a cookie required for this purpose – for example, by selecting a browser setting that generally disables the automatic setting of cookies, or by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain “googleleadservices.com”.
Please note that you must not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not want measurement data to be collected. If you have deleted all your cookies in the browser, you must set the respective opt-out cookie again.
This website uses the remarketing function of Google Inc. The function is used to present interest-based advertising to website visitors within the Google advertising network. A so-called “cookie” is stored in the browser of the website visitor, which makes it possible to recognize the visitor when he visits websites that belong to the Google advertising network. On these websites, the visitor may be shown advertisements that relate to content that the visitor has previously accessed on websites that use Google’s remarketing function.
This website uses the reCAPTCHA service provided by Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland “Google”). The query is used to distinguish whether the input is made by a human or by automated, machine processing. The query includes the transmission of the IP address and possibly further data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. For this purpose, your input is transmitted to Google and used there. However, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this service. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of reCaptcha is not merged with other data from Google. Your data may also be transferred to the USA in the process. For data transfers to the USA, there is an adequacy decision of the European Commission, the “Privacy Shield”. Google participates in the “Privacy Shield” and has submitted to the requirements. By pressing the query you agree to the processing of your data. The processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO with your consent. You can revoke your consent at any time without affecting the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited. If the controller of the data processing on this website is located outside the European Economic Area or Switzerland, the data processing of Google Analytics is carried out by Google LLC. Google LLC and Google Ireland Limited are hereinafter referred to as “Google”.
The statistics obtained enable us to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. This website also uses Google Analytics for cross-device analysis of visitor flows, using a user ID. If you have a Google user account, you can deactivate the cross-device analysis of your usage in the settings there under “My data”, “Personal data”.
The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code “_anonymizeIp();” to ensure anonymized collection of IP addresses. This means that IP addresses are processed in shortened form so that they cannot be associated with a specific person. If the data collected about you can be assigned to a person, this will be ruled out immediately and the personal data will be deleted immediately.
Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. For the exceptional cases where personal data is transferred to the US, Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
In addition, you can also prevent the use of Google Analytics by clicking on this link: Disable Google Analytics. This saves a so-called opt-out cookie on your data carrier, which prevents the processing of personal data by Google Analytics. Please note that when you delete all cookies on your terminal device, these opt-out cookies are also deleted, i.e. you must set the opt-out cookies again if you want to continue to prevent this form of data collection. The opt-out cookies are set per browser and computer/end device and must therefore be activated separately for each browser, computer or other end device.
We use Google AdSense on this website. This is an advertising program of the company Google Inc. In Europe, the company Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services. Google AdSense allows us to display ads on this website that are relevant to our topic.
Through the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with Google’s server. Through the integration of Google Ads, Google receives the information that you have called up the relevant part of our website or clicked on an ad from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is a possibility that Google will learn and store your IP address.
You can prevent participation in this tracking process in several ways:
by setting your browser software accordingly; in particular, suppressing third-party cookies will prevent you from receiving third-party advertising;
by disabling interest-based advertising from the providers that are part of the self-regulatory campaign “About Ads” via the link https://www.aboutads.info/choices, this setting being deleted when you delete your cookies;
by permanently deactivating it in your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browsers via the link https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this offer to their full extent.
The legal basis for the processing of your data is a balancing of interests, according to which the processing of your personal data described above is not opposed by any overriding interests on your part (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO). For more information about Google Ads from Google, please visit https://ads.google.com/intl/de_DE/home/, and about Google privacy in general: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy. Alternatively, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) website at https://www.networkadvertising.org.
This website uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. When you visit a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache to display text and fonts correctly. If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font from your computer is used.
The Google Tag Manager is a solution with which we can manage so-called website tags via an interface and thus integrate e.g. Google Analytics and other Google marketing services into our online offer. The Tag Manager itself, which implements the tags, does not process any personal data of the users. With regard to the processing of users’ personal data, we refer to the following information on Google services. Usage Guidelines: https://www.google.com/intl/de/tagmanager/use-policy.html.
This website uses functions of Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA . When you visit our pages with Facebook plugins, a connection is established between your browser and the Facebook servers. Data is already transmitted to Facebook in the process. If you have a Facebook account, this data can be linked to it. If you do not want this data to be linked to your Facebook account, please log out of Facebook before visiting our site. Interactions, in particular the use of a comment function or the clicking of a “Like” or “Share” button, are also forwarded to Facebook. To learn more, visit https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy.
This website uses functions of Twitter, Inc. 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. When you visit our pages with Twitter plug-ins, a connection is established between your browser and Twitter’s servers. This already transfers data to Twitter. If you have a Twitter account, this data can be linked to it. If you do not want this data to be linked to your Twitter account, please log out of Twitter before visiting our site. Interactions, in particular clicking a “re-tweet” button, are also forwarded to Twitter. To learn more, visit https://twitter.com/privacy.
We use the marketing services of the social network LinkedIn of LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland (“LinkedIn”) within our online offer.
For example, information about the operating system, the browser, the previously visited website (referrer URL), the visited web pages, the clicked offers as well as the date and time of your visit to our website are collected.
The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is transferred in pseudonymous form to a LinkedIn server in the USA and stored there. LinkedIn therefore does not store the name or email address of the respective user. Rather, the aforementioned data is only assigned to the person for whom the cookie was generated. This does not apply if the user has allowed LinkedIn to process without pseudonymization or has a LinkedIn account.
We use LinkedIn Analytics to analyze and regularly improve the use of our website. The statistics obtained enable us to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. All LinkedIn companies have adopted the standard contractual clauses to ensure that the data traffic to the USA and Singapore required for the development, implementation and maintenance of the services is carried out in a lawful manner. If we ask users for consent, the legal basis for processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO. Otherwise, the legal basis for the use of LinkedIn Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
Send Newsletter – Active Campaign
This website uses the services of Active Campaign for sending newsletters. The provider is the US provider ActiveCampaign, LLC, 150 N. Michigan Ave Suite 1230, Chicago, IL, US, USA.
Active Campaign is a service that can be used, among other things, to organize and evaluate the sending of newsletters. If you enter data for the purpose of receiving the newsletter (e.g. your e-mail address), this data will be stored on Active Campaign’s servers in the USA.
Active Campaign has a certification according to the “EU-US Privacy-Shield”. The “Privacy Shield” is an agreement between the European Union (EU) and the USA to ensure compliance with European data protection standards in the USA.
Active Campaign allows us to analyze our newsletter campaigns. When you open an email sent with Active Campaign, a file contained in the email (called a web beacon) connects to Active Campaign’s servers in the United States. In this way, it can be determined whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links, if any, have been clicked. In addition, technical information is collected (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type and operating system). This information is not attributable to the respective newsletter recipient. They are used exclusively for the statistical evaluation of the newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of the recipients.
If you do not want Active Campaign to analyze your data, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in each newsletter message. In addition, you can also unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on our website.
The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data that you have provided to us for receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from our servers as well as from Active Campaign’s servers after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the member area) remain unaffected by this.
Privacy Shield Certification link: https://www. privacyshield.gov.
Conclusion of a data processing agreement
We have entered into a so-called “Data Processing Agreement” with Active Campaign, in which we oblige Active Campaign to protect our customers’ data and not to pass it on to third parties.
Audio and video conferencing
We use audio and video conferencing services to communicate with our users and others. In particular, we can use it to conduct audio and video conferences, virtual meetings, and training such as webinars.
Functions of the “YouTube” service are integrated on this website. “YouTube” is owned by Google Ireland Limited, a company incorporated and operated under the laws of Ireland, with its registered office at Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, which operates the Services in the European Economic Area and Switzerland.
If you have a Vimeo user account and do not want Vimeo to collect data about you through this website and link it to your membership data stored with Vimeo, you must log out of Vimeo before visiting this website.
In addition, Vimeo calls the Google Analytics tracker via an iFrame in which the video is called. This is Vimeo’s own tracking, which we do not have access to. You can prevent tracking by Google Analytics by using the deactivation tools that Google offers for some Internet browsers. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link:
We process the data of our customers in accordance with the data protection provisions of the federal government (Data Protection Act, DSG) and the EU-DSGVO within the scope of our contractual services.In doing so, we process inventory data (e.g. customer master data, such as names or addresses), contact data (e.g.., e-mail, telephone numbers), content data (e.g. text entries, etc.), contract data (e.g. subject matter of the contract, term), payment data (e.g. bank details, payment behavior), usage data and metadata (e.g. as part of the evaluation and performance measurement of marketing measures). Data subjects include our customers, prospective customers as well as their customers, users, website visitors or employees as well as third parties. The purpose of the processing is the provision of contractual services, billing and our customer service. The legal basis for the processing results from Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO (contractual services), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO (analysis, statistics, optimization, security measures). We process data that are necessary for the justification and fulfillment of contractual services and indicate the necessity of their disclosure. Data is only passed on to external parties if this is necessary in the context of an order. When processing the data provided to us as part of an order, we act in accordance with the instructions of the client as well as the legal requirements of a commissioned processing pursuant to Art. 28 DSGVO and do not process the data for purposes other than those specified in the order.
We delete the data after expiry of the statutory warranty and comparable obligations. The necessity of keeping the data is reviewed at irregular intervals. In the case of legal archiving obligations, deletion takes place after their expiry. In the case of data that the client has provided to us as part of an order, we delete the data in accordance with the specifications of the order, usually after the order has been completed.
Data transfer to the USA
Among other things, tools from companies based in the USA are integrated on our website. When these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to the US servers of the respective companies. We would like to point out that the USA is not a safe third country in the sense of EU data protection law. U.S. companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you, the data subject, being able to take legal action against them. It can therefore not be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. intelligence services) process, evaluate and permanently store your data located on US servers for surveillance purposes. We have no influence on these processing operations.
The author does not guarantee the correctness, accuracy, timeliness, reliability and completeness of the information.
Liability claims regarding damage caused by the use of any information provided, including any kind of information which is incomplete or incorrect, will therefore be rejected.
All offers are subject to change. The author expressly reserves the right to change, supplement or delete parts of the pages or the entire offer without prior notice or to cease publication temporarily or permanently.
