Privacy Statement for Cookies
Data transmission security (without SSL)
Please note that data transmitted via an open network such as the Internet or an e-mail service without SSL encryption can be viewed by anyone. You can recognize an unencrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser displays “http://” and no lock symbol is displayed in your browser line. Information transmitted over the Internet and content received online may be transmitted over third-party networks. We cannot guarantee the confidentiality of communications or documents transmitted over such open networks or third party networks.
If you disclose personal information through an open network or third-party networks, you should be aware that your data may be lost or that third parties may potentially access this information and consequently collect and use the data without your consent. Although in many cases the individual data packets are transmitted in encrypted form, the names of the sender and recipient are not. Even if the sender and the recipient live in the same country, data is often transmitted via such networks without controls, even via third countries, i.e. also via countries that do not offer the same level of data protection as your country of domicile. We assume no responsibility for the security of your data during transmission via the Internet and accept no liability for direct or indirect losses. We ask you to use other means of communication if you deem this necessary or reasonable for security reasons.
Despite extensive technical and organizational security precautions, data may be lost or intercepted and/or manipulated by unauthorized persons. As far as possible, we take appropriate technical and organizational security measures to prevent this within our system. However, your computer is outside our controlled security area. It is your responsibility as a user to inform yourself about the necessary security precautions and to take appropriate measures in this regard. As a website operator, we are not liable for any damage that may result from loss or manipulation of data.
Data which you enter in online forms may be passed on to third parties for the purpose of order processing and may be inspected and processed by these third parties.

The user accounts are not public and cannot be indexed by search engines such as Google. If users have terminated their user account, their data will be deleted with regard to the user account, subject to its retention for commercial or tax reasons pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO.

Note concerning data transfers to the USA (United States)
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 from Switzerland – which has been transferred to the USA.
This shall be done without differentiation, limitation or exception on the basis of the objectives pursued and without any objective criterion which would allow access to and subsequent use of the data by the US authorities to be limited to very specific and strictly limited purposes which may justify access to and use of the data. In addition, we draw your attention to the fact that in the USA there are no legal remedies available 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.
Users residing in an EU member state we would like to point out that, from the point of view of the European Union, the USA does not have an adequate data protection level.
