The General Data Protection Regulation(GDPR) is a European Union regulation that standardizes the rules for the processing of personal data by private companies and public bodies throughout the EU. This is intended to ensure the protection of personal data within the European Union on the one hand and to guarantee the free movement of data within the European Single Market on the other.

The regulation replaces Directive 95/46/EC on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, which dates back to 1995.

11 How do we use log files?

Every time you access our website, certain usage data is transmitted to us by your Internet browser for technical reasons and stored in log files. This involves the following usage data: Date and time of access to our website; name of the website accessed; IP address of your computer or mobile device; address of the website from which you came to our website; amount of data transferred, as well as the name and version of your browser.

In order to constantly improve and optimize our website, we use so-called tracking technologies. Web analysis tools provide us with statistics and graphics that give us information about the use of our Internet pages. Data about the use of a website is transmitted to the server used for this purpose. Depending on the provider of a web analysis tool, these servers may be located abroad. For the most frequently used web analysis tool, Google Analytics, this data is transmitted including abbreviated IP addresses, which prevents the identification of individual devices. Google complies with the data protection provisions of the “Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield” agreement and has registered with the U.S. Department of Commerce for the “Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield” (information on the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield can be found at The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

13 How do we use social plugins?

Our websites use social plugins, e.g. from Facebook, Twitter or Google+. The plugins are marked with the provider’s logo and can be, for example, “Like” buttons or a Twitter button or Google+ button.

When you access our Internet pages that contain such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with the provider’s computers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly to your browser by the offering site and integrated into the website. By integrating the plugins, the provider receives the information that you have accessed our website. If you are logged in to the provider at the same time, the provider can assign the visit to your profile. If you interact with the plugins – for example, by clicking the “Like” button or leaving a comment – the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to the provider and stored there.

If you do not want the provider to collect data about you via our website, you must log out from the provider before visiting our website. Even when you are logged out, the providers collect anonymized data via the social plugins and set you a cookie. This data can be assigned to your profile if you log in to the provider at a later time.

If a login is offered via a social login service – e.g. Facebook Connect – data is exchanged between the provider and our website. With Facebook Connect, for example, this can be data from your public Facebook profile. By using such login services, you consent to the transfer of data.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing of your data by the provider as well as your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy can be found in the provider’s data protection information.

If you do not want the providers to collect data about you via these cookies, you can select the “Block third-party cookies” function in your browser settings. Then the browser does not send cookies to the server for embedded content from other providers. With this setting, other functions of our website may no longer work.
