6. Cookies

Cookies are small text files with information that are exchanged between computer applications to improve the customer experience in a more meaningful and efficient way while visiting the online shop.
Online shop registration, the completion of an online form as well as the shopping cart are subject to cookies so that the online shop operates correctly in respect to temporary input and storage functions. Modern internet browsers accept cookies automatically. Each internet browser can be configured so that cookies will either not be saved or that there will be displayed a notice each time a new cookie is received.
Information about cookie deactivation may be obtained on the internet from the appropriate internet browser provider.
Deactivation of Cookies may cause the online shop to malfunction.


7. Tracking

The online shop makes use of Google Analytics. Besides using Google Analytics for statistical purposes it is used primarily to continuously improve the handling and navigation of the online shop and for users to get the best browsing experience possible. For this purpose, pseudo anonymized user profiles and small text files (cookies) are created temporarily, which in turn are stored on the computer. The information generated by cookies is transmitted to Google Analytics in order to become available to the online shop after further processing.
Collected Google Analytics data are not passed on to third parties unless it is explicitly required by law.
Google Analytics is a service provider of Google Inc. based in the United States and is therefore governed by the laws of the United States. Before any data is transmitted to the provider the IP address on the browser is shortened on the online shop through activation of an IP anonymization (anonymizeIP). This process takes place within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the agreement on the European Economic Area.
Anonymized IP addresses provided by the browser and transmitted to Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data provided by Google. The full IP address will be sent to and shortened on a Google server based in the USA only in exceptional cases. According to Google Inc. IP addresses are never associated with any other data related to users.
More information about Google Analytics can be found on the official website of Google Analytics. Instructions on how to reduce and/or prevent the collection and processing of data by Google Analytics can be found at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.


8. Data Transfers to the USA

It is hereby explicitly declared that the U.S. authority applies monitoring tools to enable them to store all personal data of all users whose data has been transmitted from Switzerland or from any other country to the USA.
Furthermore, there are no legal options available for affected users from neither Switzerland nor from any other country which would allow them to either have access to, correct or delete their collected data in the USA. Likewise, there is no effective and legal protection available against the general access carried out by U.S. authorities.
Above information merely serves as a helping tool to provide the user with a pre-informed decision regarding the consent and use of its own data as the online shop privacy in connection with Google Analytics can not be fully guaranteed due to the aforementioned factors.


9. Right to Information, Adjustment and Deletion of Personal Data

Stored personal online shop data can be viewed upon request by the customer. Incorrect data can either be corrected by the customer or by us, or can be deleted upon customer request as far as there is no existing legal retention obligation in this regard.
The customer has the right to submit a request for information at any time on the contact page of the online shop. For security reasons proof of identity is required for any requests regarding the release of personal data.


10. Data Security

The online shop has been developed considering the latest technology available. Constant improvements as well as the implementation of new security measures form an integral part to protect stored personal data against manipulation, partial or complete loss and against unauthorized access by third parties.
Access data used by the customer on the online shop should always be treated confidentially. To ensure a high degree of security the following browser data should be deleted once the online shop session has been terminated by the customer, in particular if the computer has been used together with other users:

  • Browsing history
  • Download history
  • Cookies and other site data
  • Cached images and files
  • Passwords
  • Autofill form data
  • Content settings

It should be noted that other means of data transmission (e.g. Email, Phone) have security vulnerabilities and therefore can not be fully protected against access by third parties.

Contract data will be stored for as long as it is legally required by the current retention obligations resulting from present accounting and tax regulations.
