We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations, this Privacy Policy and our Cookie Policy.

It is usually possible to use our websites without providing personal information. Where personal data is collected on our websites, it is either (1) data actively and voluntarily provided by you (e.g. name, address or email addresses, photos and videos) or (2) data collected from you by means of cookies or related technologies (see Cookie Policy) such as IP address and location data.

Your personal data will be processed for the purposes for which you provided us with that data (to correspond with you, for example) unless the processing is justified by another legal reason such as a legal obligation or a request from a court or authority.

We will also pass on information to our affiliated companies or third parties insofar as required to process orders, requests or inquiries from you. In so doing, we will disclose only the information required for the purpose at hand. Our affiliates or third parties will in any case be required to comply with data protection laws and appropriate safeguards will be provided if they are located in countries that do not offer adequate levels of data protection under EU and Swiss data protection law.

Your personal data will never be disclosed to third parties for external marketing purposes. We will store your personal data only for as long as is legally required or necessary for the purpose of the processing.

Please note that the Internet, and in particular communication by email, must still be considered an unsafe medium with potential security vulnerabilities. It is not possible to protect data completely against access by third parties. We constantly endeavour to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to prevent your personal data from being accessed by third parties. Nevertheless, we recommend that you send any highly confidential information by post.

Updates to this Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy will be updated if we introduce additional services or change Internet procedures or if Internet and IT security technology evolves or the legal basis changes. We therefore reserve the right to amend or supplement this Privacy Policy at any time. The current version will be published here.


We will not knowingly collect any personal data from children without expressly indicating that such data should be provided only with parental consent, if applicable legislation so requires. As a general principle, we will use or transfer personal data about children only, insofar as this is permitted by law, in order to obtain the legally required parental consent or to protect children. The definition of "child" or "children" takes into account applicable national laws and cultural customs.
