Only in the event of an attack on the network infrastructure of the website or if another form of illicit or abusive use of the website is suspected, the IP address shall be analysed for the purposes of clarification and defence and, if necessary, used in criminal proceedings for identification and in civil and criminal proceedings against the users concerned.

2. Use of your data for re-targeting
We use so-called re-targeting technologies. Your usage behaviour on our website shall there-by be analysed so that advertisement that is individually tailor-made for you can be offered even on partner websites. Your usage behaviour shall be recorded pseudonymously.
Most of the re-targeting technologies work with cookies (for this, refer to section 7 below).
This website uses Doubleclick by Google, a service from Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”), for placing advertisements based on the use of previously visited websites. For this, Google uses the so-called DoubleClick cookie, which allows recognition of your browser when visiting other websites. The information gener-ated by the cookie about the visit to these websites (including your IP address) is transferred to a Google server in the USA and saved there (you shall find additional information on trans-fers of personal data into the USA below in section 8).
Google shall use this information to evaluate your use of the website with respect to the adver-tisements to be placed, to compile reports about the website activities and advertisements and to provide other services that are associated with the website use and the Internet use. If nec-essary, Google shall also transfer this information to third parties if this is legally prescribed or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Google shall however, under no circum-stances, link your IP address with other data of Google. Google is listed as a Privacy Shield participant. The Privacy Shield agreement between the EU and the USA guarantees minimum standards for data protection. More information on Google’s data protection can be found here.
We also use the Google Tag Manager to manage the services for usage-based advertisement. The Tag Manager tool itself is a cookieless domain and does not record any personal data. The tool rather serves for triggering other tags, which record data under certain circumstances (for this, refer above). If you have made a deactivation at the domain or cookie level, this shall be retained for all tracking tags that have been implemented with Google Tag Manager.
You can prevent the re-targeting at any time by rejecting or deactivating the relevant cookies in the menu bar of your web browser (for this, refer to section 7 below).
3. Forwarding of data to third parties or granting of data access to third parties
We shall forward your personal data only if you have explicitly consented to this, if there is a legal obligation for this, or if this is necessary to enforce our rights, in particular to enforce claims arising from the contractual relationship.
A service provider, to which the personal data collected through the website shall be forwarded or which has or can have an access to such data, is our web host iWay AG, Badenerstrasse 569, 8048 Zurich. The website is hosted on servers in Switzerland.
4. Transmission of personal data abroad
We shall be authorised to forward your personal data even to third-party companies abroad if this is necessary in connection with the processing of your bookings, inquiries, the provision of services and marketing campaigns. The legal provisions on the forwarding of personal data to third parties shall naturally be adhered to while doing so. The third parties shall be obligated for data protection to the same extent as that applicable for the provider itself. If the level of data protection in a country does not correspond to that in Switzerland or the EU data protec-tion law, we shall ensure by contractual means that the protection of your personal data corre-sponds to that in Switzerland or in the European Economic Area (EEA) at all times.
5. Right to information, correction, deletion and restriction of processing; right to data portability; right to appeal to a supervisory authority
You can any time object to data processing, particularly to data processing in connection with direct advertisement (e.g. against advertising e-mails). You shall also have the following rights:
Right to information: You shall have the right to demand an insight into your personal data saved with us any time and free of charge if we are processing this data. You can check as to which of your personal data is being processed by us, and that we are using it according to the applicable data protection regulations.
Right to correction: You shall have the right to have incorrect or incomplete personal data corrected and to be informed about the correction. In this case, we shall inform the recipients of the data concerned about the corrections made unless this is impossible or associated with disproportionate effort.
Right to deletion: You shall have the right to have your personal data deleted under certain circumstances. In the individual case, the right to deletion can be ruled out.
Right of restriction of processing: Under certain conditions, you shall have the right to de-mand restriction of the processing of your personal data.
Right to data transfer: If you have your domicile in an EU or EEA member state, you shall, under certain circumstances, have the right to get the personal data that was provided to us by you free of charge in a readable format.
Right of appeal: If you have your domicile in an EU or EEA member state, you shall have the right to appeal to a competent supervisory authority against the method of the processing of your personal data.
Right of revocation: You shall basically have the right to revoke an issued consent at any time. Processing activities in the past based on your consent shall however not become illegal through your revocation.
6. Data security
We take appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data that is stored with us from manipulation, partial or complete loss and unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are constantly being improved in line with technologi-cal developments.
We also take data protection within our organisation very seriously. Our employees and the service providers commissioned by us are obligated by us to maintain confidentiality and to comply with our data protection regulations. Moreover, they are granted access to personal data only to the necessary extent.
Cookies help in many ways to make your visit to our website easier, more pleasant and more meaningful. Cookies are information files that your web browser automatically stores on your computer’s hard drive when you visit our website. Cookies neither damage your computer’s hard drive nor do they transfer the users’ personal data to us.
Most Internet browsers accept cookies automatically. It is possible, however, to configure your browser such that no cookies are stored on your computer or such that a message shall al-ways appear when you receive a new cookie. On the following pages, you shall find explana-tions as to how you can configure the processing of cookies in the most common browsers.
- Microsoft Windows Internet Explorer
- Mozilla Firefox
- Google Chrome für Desktop
- Google Chrome für Mobile
- Apple Safari für Desktop
If you deactivate cookies, you may not be able to use all functions on our website.
a. Google Analytics
For the purpose of needs-based designing and continuous optimisation of our websites, we use the web analysis service Google Analytics from Google. In this connection, pseudony-mised usage profiles shall be created and small text files that are stored on your computer (“cookies”) shall be used. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this web-site by you such as
- browser type/version
- the operating system used
- referrer URL (the previously visited page)
- host name of the accessing computer (IP address)
- time of the server request
shall be transferred to Google servers in the USA and saved there. Since IP anonymisation (“anonymizeIP”) has been activated on this website, the IP address shall be shortened before the transmission within European Union member states or in other signatory states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The anonymised IP address sent by your brows-er within the scope of Google Analytics shall not be grouped with other Google data. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address shall be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. In these cases, we shall ensure through contractual guarantees that Google adheres to a sufficient level of data protection.
This information shall be used to analyse the website usage, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide other services associated with the website and Internet usage for the purposes of market research and designing of these websites according to the users’ needs. If necessary, this information shall also be transferred to third parties if this is legally prescribed or if third parties process this data on order. According to Google, the IP address shall never be linked with other data concerning the user.
Users can prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie about the website usage by the user concerned (including the IP address) for Google as well as to the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin that is available under the following link:
For reasons pertaining to completeness, we would like to point out that monitoring measures are taken in the USA by US authorities, which generally allow the storage of all the personal data of all persons, whose data has been transmitted from the Union into the USA. This takes place without differentiation, restriction or exception by means of the purpose pursued and without an objective criterion that allows to restrict the access of the US authorities to the data and its subsequent use to certain, strictly limited purposes, which justify the intervention that is associated with the access to this data as well as with its use.
We would like to point out to the users domiciled in an EU member state that the USA does not have a sufficient level of data protection from the point of view of the European Union – mainly due to the topics mentioned in this section. As long as have stated in this Privacy Poli-cy that recipients of data (e.g. Google) have their registered office in the USA, we shall make sure either through contractual regulations with these companies or by ensuring the certifica-tion of these companies under the EU- or Swiss-US Privacy Shield that your data is appropri-ately protected with our partners.
b. Crazy Egg
We use the web tracking tool Crazy Egg on our website. Crazy Egg is operated by Crazy Egg Inc., 6220 E. Ridgeview Lane, La Mirada, CA, 90638, USA.
Crazy Egg uses “cookies”, i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the website usage by you (for this, refer to section 7 above). The information gen-erated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Crazy Egg serv-er in the USA and saved there. You can prevent the storage of the cookies using a corre-sponding setting of your browser software. You can also prevent the collection and forwarding of the data generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including the IP address) to Crazy Egg as well as the processing of this data by Crazy Egg by following the instructions under this link: www.crazyegg.com/opt-out.
9. Links to our social media presences and social plugins
On our website, we have integrated a link to our social media profile on the following social network:
- Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA
When you call up a link to one of our social media profiles, a direct connection shall be estab-lished between your browser and the server of the social network concerned. The network shall thus receive the information that you, with your IP address, have visited our website and called up the link. When you call up a link to a network while being logged in to your account with the network concerned, the contents of our website can be linked with your profile with the network; this means that the network can directly assign your visit to our website to your user account. If you want to prevent this, you should log out before using the corresponding links. An assignment shall take place in any case if you log in with the network concerned after using the link.
10. Retention periods
We shall save personal data only as long as this is necessary to execute the afore-mentioned tracking services and to carry out the further processing activities within the scope of our legit-imate interest. We shall retain contractual data for a longer period, as this is prescribed by le-gal retention obligations. Retention obligations that require us to retain data shall result from accounting regulations and tax regulations. According to these regulations, business commu-nication, concluded contracts, and accounting records must be retained for up to 10 years. If we no longer need this data to execute the services for you, the data shall be blocked. This means that the data may then only be used for billing and tax purposes.
11. Contact person
If you have questions regarding the data protection on our website, want to demand infor-mation or apply for the deletion of your data, please contact our contact person for the data protection law by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
