Processing of personal data
Personal data is all information that relates 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, irrespective of the means and procedures used, in particular the storage, disclosure, procurement, deletion, storage, modification, destruction and use of personal data.
We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law. In addition, we process personal data – insofar and to the extent that the EU GDPR is applicable – in accordance with the following legal principles in connection with Art. 6 Para. 1 GDPR:
- item a) Processing of personal data with the consent of the data subject.
- Item b) Processing of personal data for the purpose of fulfilling a contract with the data subject and for carrying out appropriate pre-contractual measures.
- Item c) Processing of personal data for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which we are subject under any applicable law of the EU or under any applicable law of a country in which the DPA is applicable in whole or in part.
- Item d) Processing of personal data to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person.
- Item f) Processing of personal data to safeguard the legitimate interests of third parties or us, except where such interests are overridden by the fundamental freedoms and rights and interests of the data subject. Legitimate interests are, in particular, our commercial 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 respective purpose or purposes. In the case of longer-term storage obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we will limit the processing accordingly.
This website uses SSL/TLS encryption for reasons of security and protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the requests you send to us as the site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of your browser changes from «http://» to «https://» and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
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 recognise 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 that is transmitted via the Internet and content received online may, under certain circumstances, be transmitted via third-party networks. We cannot guarantee the confidentiality of messages or documents transmitted via such open networks or third-party networks.
If you disclose personal information over 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 therefore collect and use the data without your consent. Although the individual data packets are transmitted in encrypted form in many cases, the sender and recipient’s names are not. Even if the sender and the recipient live in the same country, data transmission via such networks is often carried out 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 residence. We assume no responsibility for the security of your data during transmission via the Internet and disclaim any liability for direct or indirect losses. We ask you to use other means of communication should you consider this necessary or reasonable for security reasons.
Data may be lost or intercepted, and/or manipulated by unauthorised persons despite extensive technical and organisational security measures. As far as possible, we take appropriate technical and organisational security measures to prevent this within our system. However, your computer is located outside the security area under our control. As a user, it is your responsibility to inform yourself about the necessary security measures and take appropriate action in this regard. As a website operator, we are in no way liable for any damage that you may incur as a result of data loss or manipulation.
Data that you enter in online forms may be passed on to third parties for the purpose of order processing and may be viewed and processed by them.

Order processing in the online shop with customer account
We process the data of our customers in accordance with the data protection regulations of the Swiss Confederation (Data Protection Act, DSG) and the EU-GDPR, within the framework of the order processes in our online shop, in order to enable them to select and order the selected products and services, as well as their payment and delivery, or execution.
The processed data includes master data (inventory data), communication data, contract data, payment data, and the persons affected by the processing include our customers, interested parties and other business partners. The processing is carried out for the purpose of providing contractual services in the context of operating an online shop, billing, delivery and customer services. For this purpose, we use session cookies, e.g. for storing the contents of the shopping cart, and permanent cookies, e.g. for storing the login status.
The processing is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 item b (execution of ordering processes) and c (legally required archiving) of the GDPR. The information marked as required is required for the establishment and fulfilment of the contract. We disclose the data to third parties only within the scope of delivery, payment or within the scope of the legal permits and obligations. The data is only processed in third countries if this is necessary for the fulfilment of the contract (e.g. at the request of the customer for delivery or payment).
Users can optionally create a user account, in particular by viewing their orders. During the registration process, the required mandatory data will be provided to the users. 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 their safekeeping is necessary for reasons of commercial or tax law in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 item c GDPR. Data in the customer account will remain until their deletion with subsequent archiving in case of a legal obligation. It is the responsibility of the users to save their data in case of termination before the end of the contract.
Within the scope of registration and renewed logins and use of our online services, we store the IP address and the time of the respective user action. The storage is based on our legitimate interests, as well as the user’s need for protection against misuse and other unauthorised use. This data will not be passed on to third parties unless it is necessary to pursue our claims or there is a legal obligation to do so in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 item c DSGVO.
Deletion takes place after the expiry of the legal warranty, and comparable obligations, the necessity of data storage is checked at irregular intervals. In the case of legal archiving obligations, deletion shall take place after the expiry of these obligations.
We process the data of our customers in accordance with the data protection regulations of the Swiss Confederation (Data Protection Act, DSG) and the EU-GDPR within the scope of our contractual services.
We process inventory data (e.g., customer master data, such as names or addresses), contact data (e.g., e-mail, telephone numbers), content data (e.g., text entries, etc.), contract data (e.g., subject matter of the contract, term of the contract), payment data (e.g., bank details, payment history), usage and metadata (e.g., in the context of the evaluation and performance measurement of marketing measures). Those affected include our customers, interested parties and their customers, users, website visitors or employees, as well as third parties. The purpose of processing is to provide contractual services, billing and our customer service. The legal basis of the processing is derived from Art. 6 para. 1 item b GDPR (contractual services), Art. 6 para. 1 item f GDPR (analysis, statistics, optimisation, security measures). We process data which are necessary for the justification and fulfilment of the contractual services and point out the necessity of their disclosure. Disclosure to external parties is only made if it is required within the scope of a contract. When processing the data provided to us within the scope of an order, we act in accordance with the instructions of the client and the legal requirements of an order processing in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR and do not process the data for any other purposes than those specified in the order.
We delete the data after the expiry of the legal warranty and comparable obligations. The necessity of keeping the data is checked at irregular intervals. In the case of legal archiving obligations, the deletion takes place after the expiry of these obligations. In the case of data that has been disclosed to us by the client within the scope of an order, we delete the data in accordance with the requirements of the order, in principle after the end of the order.
We process the data of our customers, clients and interested parties (uniformly referred to as «customers») in accordance with the data protection regulations of the Swiss Confederation (Data Protection Act, DSG) and the EU-GDPR in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 item b. GDPR in order to provide them with our contractual or pre-contractual services. The data processed, the type, scope, purpose and necessity of their processing are determined by the underlying order. This includes in principle inventory and master data of the customers (name, address, etc.), as well as contact data (e-mail address, telephone, etc.), contract data (content of the order, fees, terms, details of the brokered companies/insurance companies/ services) and payment data (commissions, payment history, etc.). We may also process the information on the characteristics and circumstances of persons or items belonging to them if this is part of the subject of our order. This can be, for example, information on personal circumstances, mobile or immobile material goods.
Within the scope of our assignment, it may also be necessary for us to process special categories of data in accordance with Art. 9 Para. 1 GDPR, in particular, data concerning the health of a person. For this purpose, we obtain the express consent of the customer, if necessary, in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 item a., Art. 7, Art. 9 Para. 2 item a GDPR.
Insofar as it is necessary for the fulfilment of the contract or legally required, we disclose or transfer the data of the customers in the context of coverage requests, conclusion and processing of contracts, data to providers of the brokered services/objects, insurers, reinsurers, broker pools, technical service providers, other service providers, such as, e.g. cooperating associations, as well as financial service providers, credit institutions and investment companies as well as social security institutions, tax authorities, tax advisors, legal advisors, auditors, insurance ombudspersons and the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) or Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin). Furthermore, we can also engage subcontractors, such as sub-brokers. We obtain the consent of the clients, provided that such consent is required for disclosure/transmission (which may be the case, for example, in the case of special categories of data pursuant to Art. 9 GDPR).
The deletion of the data is carried out after the expiry of legal warranty and comparable obligations, whereby the necessity of the storage of the data is checked at irregular intervals. In all other respects, the statutory storage obligations apply. In the case of the legal archiving obligations, the deletion occurs after their expiry.
We process the data of our contractual partners and interested parties as well as other principals, customers, clients, clients or contractual partners (uniformly referred to as «contractual partners») in accordance with the data protection regulations of the Federal Republic of Germany (Data Protection Act, DSG) and the EU-DSGVO in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. DSGVO in order to provide them with our contractual or pre-contractual services. The data processed in this context, the type, scope and purpose of such processing and the necessity of processing it, shall be determined by the underlying contractual relationship.
The processed data includes the master data of our contractual partners (e.g. names and addresses), contact data (e.g. e-mail addresses and telephone numbers) as well as contract data (e.g. services used, contract contents, contractual communication, names of contact persons) and payment data (e.g. bank details, payment history).
As a matter of principle, we do not process special categories of personal data, unless they are part of a commissioned or contractual processing.
We process data which are necessary for the justification and fulfilment of the contractual services and point out the necessity of their disclosure, if this is not evident to the contractual partners. Disclosure to external persons or companies will only be made if it is necessary within the scope of a contract. When processing the data provided to us within the framework of an order, we act in accordance with the instructions of the client and the legal requirements.
When using our online services, we may store the IP address and the time of the respective user action. The storage is based on our legitimate interests, as well as the interests of the users in protection against misuse and other unauthorized use. This data will not be passed on to third parties, unless it is necessary to pursue our claims in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 item f. GDPR or there is a legal obligation to do so in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 item c. GDPR.
The data is deleted when the data is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of contractual or statutory duties of care and for dealing with any warranty and comparable duties, whereby the necessity of storing the data is checked at irregular intervals. In all other respects, the statutory storage obligations apply.
Administration, financial accounting, office organisation, contact management
We process data in accordance with the data protection regulations of the Swiss Confederation (Data Protection Act, DSG) and the EU-GDPR within the framework of administrative tasks as well as the organisation of our operations, financial accounting and compliance with legal obligations, such as archiving. In doing so, we process the same data that we process within the scope of providing our contractual services. The basis for processing is Art. 6 para. 1 item c. GDPR, Art. 6 para. 1 item f. GDPR. Customers, interested parties, business partners and website visitors are affected by the processing. The purpose of and our interest in the processing lies in the administration, financial accounting, office organisation, archiving of data, i.e. tasks that serve to maintain our business activities, perform our tasks and provide our services. The deletion of the data with regard to contractual services and contractual communication corresponds to the data mentioned in these processing activities.
In doing so, we disclose or transfer data to the tax authorities, consultants, such as tax advisors or auditors, as well as other fee earners and payment service providers.
Furthermore, we store information on suppliers, event organisers and other business partners on the basis of our business interests, e.g. for the purpose of contacting them at a later date. We store these mostly company-related data permanently.
Provision of our services according to statutes
We process the data of our members, supporters, interested parties, customers or other persons in accordance with the data protection regulations of the Swiss Confederation (Data Protection Act, DSG) and the EU-GDPR in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 item b. GDPR, insofar as we offer contractual services to them or act within the framework of existing business relationships, e.g. to members, or are ourselves recipients of services and benefits. Otherwise, we process the data of affected persons in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 item f. GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interests, e.g. if it concerns administrative tasks or public relations work.
The data processed, the nature, scope and purpose of such processing and the necessity of its processing are determined by the underlying contractual relationship. This basically includes inventory and master data of persons (e.g., name, address, etc.), as well as contact data (e.g., e-mail address, telephone number, etc.), contractual data (e.g., services used, contents and information provided, names of contact persons) and, if we offer services or products that require payment, payment data (e.g., bank details, payment history, etc.).
We delete data that are no longer required to fulfil the statutory purposes. This is determined according to the respective tasks and contractual relationships. In the case of business processing, we retain the data for as long as it may be relevant to the business transaction and also with regard to any warranty or liability obligations. The necessity of storing the data is checked at irregular intervals. In all other respects, the statutory storage obligations apply.
Note concerning data transmissions to the USA (United States of America)
For the sake 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 is done without differentiation, restriction or exception on the basis of the objectives pursued and without any objective, criterion making it possible to limit the access and subsequent use of the data by the US authorities to very specific and strictly limited purposes that can justify both access to and interference with the data. Furthermore, we would like to point out that there are no legal remedies available in the USA for Swiss data subjects that would allow them to obtain access to the data concerning them and to have them corrected or deleted, or that there is no adequate legal protection against general access rights of US authorities. We explicitly draw the attention of the person concerned to this legal and factual situation in order to make an appropriately informed decision to consent to the use of their data.
We would like to point out to users residing in an EU member state that the USA does not have an adequate level of data protection from the perspective of the European Union.
