4. Collection of data and purpose of data collection and processing
We process the personal data that we collect from users when operating our website. We use this data to ensure error-free use of the website and for the analysis and further development of the website.
When accessing our website, the following data is automatically stored in log files by the host:
- IP address (i.e. the unique address that identifies your computer on the internet)
- Date and time of the browser request
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
This data cannot be used to identify individual people. This data will not be combined with data from other sources. We use the data to ensure the functionality of the website, to assist with the administration of the website, to collect general demographic information for overall use, and for other administrative purposes. This usage data forms the basis for statistical, anonymous evaluations so that trends can be identified that we can use to improve our service accordingly.
Further information on the connection data collected can be found here at our hosting provider: https://support.hostpoint.ch/en/administrative/gdpr/frequently-asked-questions-about-gdpr/which-data-relating-to-my-visitors-does-hostpoint-always-process
5. Cookies, tracking and third-party services
We use so-called session cookies on our website, which are necessary to ensure the basic functions of the website (e.g. secure login or language settings). These cookies are small text files that are temporarily stored on your computer or mobile device. No personal data is stored when these cookies are used.
You can set your browser to reject cookies, save them for only one session, or otherwise delete them early. Most browsers are pre-set to accept cookies. These settings can also be made with all other browsers. Please note that you may not be able to use certain functions on our website without cookies or may only be able to use them to a limited extent.
For a correct display across all browsers, we use the Google Webfonts font library on our website. Google Webfonts is provided by Google Ireland (based in Ireland). Google Ireland relies on Google LLC (based in the USA) for this as the order processor (both "Google"). The fonts are stored in the cache of your browser so that they do not have to be loaded repeatedly when you visit the website.
When you visit Google Webfonts, a connection to Google is automatically established. As the provider of this website, we have no influence on this data connection. It is theoretically possible that Google will collect data during the connection and draw conclusions about the identity of visitors from this data for its own purposes, create personal profiles and link this data to the Google accounts of these people. If you have registered with Google yourself, Google knows you as well. The processing of your personal data by Google is then the responsibility of the service provider in accordance with its data protection regulations.
In order to continuously improve the user-friendliness of our website and to be able to respond to the needs of visitors, we collect statistical usage information. For this purpose, we use the analysis tool Logaholic Basic provided by our hosting provider (Section 3). Logaholic is a company based in the Netherlands. We have adjusted the settings so that IP addresses are anonymised during analysis. The collected and evaluated data can therefore not be assigned to a specific person. The data collected with the tool is stored exclusively on the server of our website and is not shared with third parties.
General information about Logaholic and how the analysis tool is used on our website can be found here from our hosting provider: https://support.hostpoint.ch/en/products/logaholic
We use the map service Google Maps on this website. We do this in the interest of having an appealing presentation of our content and to make it easy to find the places we have indicated on the website. The maps are embedded via API or iframe.
Google Maps is provided by Google Ireland (based in Ireland). Google Ireland relies on Google LLC (based in the USA) for this as the order processor (both "Google"). To use Google Maps, it is necessary to save your IP address. In addition, depending on the map, Google may store and access cookies and other information on users' devices. This information is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. As the provider of this website, we have no influence on this data transmission. Although we can assume that the information shared via Google Maps is not personal data for Google, it is possible that Google can draw conclusions about the identity of visitors from this data for its own purposes, create personal profiles, and link this data to the Google accounts of these people. If you have registered with Google yourself, Google knows you as well. The processing of your personal data by Google is then the responsibility of the service provider in accordance with its data protection regulations.
6. Data transfer and data transmission abroad
Any use of your personal data other than those mentioned in Sections 4–5, in particular their sale, transfer or distribution to third parties (domestic and foreign), is expressly excluded.
7. Duration of storage of personal data
As soon as your personal data are no longer required for the above-mentioned purposes, they will generally be deleted or anonymised as far as possible. In accordance with the Federal Act on the Surveillance of Mail and Telecommunications Traffic (BÜPF [Bundesgesetz betreffend die Überwachung des Post- und Fernmeldeverkehrs]), our hosting partner (see Section 3) has a legal obligation to retain connection data (see Section 4) for the last six months. The connection data will only be forwarded to authorised federal or cantonal authorities and services upon request and in connection with potential criminal offenses. In all other cases, the connection data will be deleted after the retention period has expired.
8. Data security
We take appropriate technical and organisational security precautions to protect your personal data from unauthorised access and misuse.
9. Right to information, processing hold and deletion
You have the right to request information about your personal data processed by us. The right to information offers the possibility for data subjects to check the processing of their data and request any necessary correction. You can also request a processing hold or the deletion of your data at any time.
Exercising such rights usually requires you to clearly prove your identity (e.g. with a copy of an ID card if your identity is otherwise not clear or cannot be verified). To assert your rights, you can contact us at the address provided in Section 2.
Each data subject also has the right to assert their claims in court or to lodge a complaint with the responsible data protection authority. The responsible data protection authority in Switzerland is the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (http://www.edoeb.admin.ch).
