Privacy Policy

Date 20/10/2018

Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in our company and our products. We take the protection of your data seriously and we want you to feel safe when visiting our website. We have therefore published this privacy policy. With a view to the European General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR"), it sets out which personal data we process, how we do so, and for what purposes. Although the GDPR is a regulation of the European Union, it is important to us. Swiss data protection law ("DSG") is strongly influenced by European law, and the future revision of the DSG will incorporate many provisions of the GDPR. In addition, companies outside the European Union must comply with the GDPR under certain circumstances if they offer goods and services to persons in the EU. We have therefore decided to align this privacy policy overall with the GDPR. The following discloses the personal information we collect about you in accordance with applicable data protection laws

(hereinafter jointly referred to as the "website"), for what purposes we use this data and how we use it to optimise our services for you.
