When a person is visiting our website, our web server automatically records certain details of the visit (e.g. the website the person is visiting us from, the visitor’s IP address, the specific areas of the website the person is visiting, including the date and duration of the visit).

However, it does not allow the identification of the visitor. In so far, no personal data is being processed in this respect.
When visiting our website, the visitor’s data is transmitted over the internet, an open network accessible to everyone. The electronic transmission of data (including via email) prohibits an effective protection of the data against third party interventions. This bears the risk that the data is being disclosed or altered, that the identity of the sender (e.g. email address) or the content of the data is imitated or otherwise manipulated by unauthorized third parties, that viruses are released, that technical transmission errors, delays or interruptions occur, that information is transmitted abroad including countries whose data protection laws are not comparable to those of Switzerland etc.
