Privacy Notice

The protection of your personal data is of great importance to us. We will adhere to all legal provisions when processing your data (DSGVO, TKG 2003; Article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution and the applicable provisions of the Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection – DSG, 235.1).

This privacy notice includes the main aspects of how our website processes your data. As a rule, it is possible to use our website without providing any personal data.
