With the following data protection declaration we inform you in particular about the type, scope, purpose, duration and legal basis of the processing of personal data, insofar as we decide either alone or together with others about the purposes and means of processing.

Since the new European Data Protection Basic Regulation (DSGVO) came into force on May 25, 2018, regulations have been in force which may also be applicable to companies and organizations based in Switzerland.

This results in increased obligations for companies and organizations to respect data protection. Further details can be found in the legal basis, which is accessible via the following link: http://eur-lex.europa.eu/eli/reg/2016/679/oj. If the DSGVO is not applicable to a particular case, we will comply with the other relevant Swiss legislation on data protection.
