The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.

In cooperation with our hosting providers, we strive to protect the databases as best as possible against unauthorized access, loss, misuse or falsification.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can be subject to security vulnerabilities. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.

We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) involves security gaps. By using this website, you consent to the collection, processing and use of data in accordance with the following description. 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. Personal data, in particular name, address or e-mail address are collected as far as possible on a voluntary basis. The data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.



Processing of personal data

Personal data is all information that refers to an identified or identifiable person. A data subject is a person about whom personal data is processed. Processing includes any handling of personal data, regardless of the means and procedures used, in particular the storage, disclosure, procurement, deletion, storage, alteration, destruction and use of personal data.

We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law. In all other respects, we process personal data - insofar and insofar as the EU Data Protection Ordinance (EU-DSGVO) is applicable - in accordance with the following legal bases in connection with Art. 6 para. 1 Data Protection Ordinance:

  • (a) Processing of personal data with the consent of the data subject.
  • (b) Processing of personal data for the fulfilment of a contract with the person concerned and for the implementation of corresponding pre-contractual measures.
  • (c) Processing of personal data to fulfil a legal obligation to which we are subject under any applicable EU law or under any applicable law of a country in which the DSGVO is fully or partially applicable.
  • (d) Processing of personal data to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person.
  • (f) Processing of personal data to protect the legitimate interests of us or third parties, unless the fundamental freedoms and rights and interests of the person concerned prevail. Legitimate interests are in particular our economic 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 necessary for the purpose or purposes in question. In the case of longer-term storage obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we limit the processing accordingly.



Privacy Policy for SSL Encryption

This website uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests you send to us as a site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser address-line.

If SSL encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.



Privacy policy for server log files

The provider of this website (Hostpoint AG, Neue Jonastrasse 60, 8640 Rapperswil-Jona, Switzerland) automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Used operating system
  • Referrer URL (previously visited URL)
  • Hostname of the accessing computer

Privacy Policy for Vimeo

On this website plugins of the video portal Vimeo of Vimeo, LLC, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA are integrated. Each time you access a page that offers one or more Vimeo video clips, a direct connection is established between your browser and a Vimeo server in the USA. Information about your visit and your IP address is stored there. Through interactions with the Vimeo plugins (e.g. clicking the start button), this information is also transmitted to Vimeo and stored there. Vimeo's Privacy Policy with more detailed information on the collection and use of your data by Vimeo can be found in Vimeo's Privacy Policy.

If you have a Vimeo user account and do not want Vimeo to collect information about you and link it to your Vimeo member information through this Web site, you must log out of Vimeo before visiting this Web site.

In addition, Vimeo calls the tracker Google Analytics via an iFrame in which the video is called. This is Vimeo's own tracking, which we don't 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 Google from collecting the data generated by Google Analytics and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and Google from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link:

Note on data transfers to the USA

For reasons of completeness, we would like to point out that users based in Switzerland are subject to surveillance measures by US authorities, which generally allow the storage of all personal data transmitted from Switzerland to the USA.

This will be done without differentiation, limitation or exception on the basis of the objectives pursued and without an objective criterion that would allow the US authorities to limit access to the data and subsequent use thereof to very specific, strictly limited purposes that could justify access to, and interference with use of, such data. In addition, we draw your attention to the fact that there are no legal remedies available in the USA for the persons concerned from Switzerland that would allow them to gain access to the data concerning them and to obtain its correction or deletion, or that there is no effective legal protection against general access rights of US authorities. We explicitly draw the attention of those concerned to this legal and factual situation in order to make an informed decision to consent to the use of their data.

We draw the attention of users residing in an EU Member State to the fact that, from the point of view of the European Union, the USA does not have an adequate level of data protection.



Use of personal data

In order to fulfil the contract, to protect our interests or to comply with legal regulations, it may be necessary for us to pass on your personal data to the following categories of recipients: Registrars, registration partners, SSL providers, credit bureaus, collection agencies, or courts and authorities.



Collection and use of location and other information

We collect and use the location information of your device in an anonymous form while you are using our services. Our services include location-based apps whose core function is to provide an experience tied to your real location. Therefore, we need to know where you use these experiences for yourself and the location of in-app resources (such as virtualized wind turbines, buildings, or structures). We identify your location using a variety of technologies, including GPS, the WLAN access points you access through the service, and a triangulation of cell towers.

We also collect and use your in-app actions and certain information about your mobile device (including device identifiers, device operating system, model, configuration and settings) to operate the Services for you and to ensure that we provide a performing experience in accordance with our Terms of Use.

We also use the above-mentioned information in anonymous form in cooperation with third parties for surveys in order to test the effectiveness of our services, collect feedback from users and thereby improve and further develop the services.
