Processing of personal data
First and foremost, we process personal data that we collect when operating our platform. We collect your personal data from you directly, in connection with the use of the website (e.g. IP address, MAC address of the smartphone or computer, information about your device and settings, cookies, date and time of your visit, pages and content accessed, functions used, referring websites, location information). Additionally, we collect any kind of information that you give us directly through the use of the platform (e.g. votes).
Purposes and legal basis of data processing
We process your data only for specified purposes and only in cases permitted by law. Below you will find the individual data processing procedures on our website, with the purposes and legal basis for data processing.
The following reasons are possible as legal basis:
- Your consent
- The execution of a contract or pre-contractual measures
- The fulfilment of legal requirements
- Our legitimate interests, unless your interests or basic rights outweigh these
- To safeguard vital interests of you or another person or to perform a task in the public interest
- Other relevant legal bases.
You will find a reference to the legal bases in the respective processing operations.
If you have given us your consent to process your personal data for specific purposes, we will process your data within the scope of this consent, unless we have another legal basis. You can revoke the consent you have given at any time. Data processing that has already taken place is not affected by this.
In the course of providing our services and making our website available, we may need to use the services of third parties. In this context, it may happen that we commission third parties to process your personal data. In this case, we will contractually ensure that these third parties comply with the requirements of data protection. Under certain circumstances we may also be obliged to disclose your data to authorities or other third parties.
We will only disclose your personal data if one of the following conditions is met:
- Your consent has been obtained
- there is a legal obligation
- if this is necessary to enforce our rights, especially to enforce claims arising from the contractual relationship
- if this is necessary to fulfil the contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures
- if we have a legitimate interest in doing so and your contrary interests do not outweigh our own
- if another legal permission has been granted.
Under certain circumstances, your personal data may also be transferred to companies abroad in the course of order processing. These companies are obligated to the same extent to data protection as we are ourselves. If the level of data protection in the country in which data is transferred does not correspond to that of Switzerland or the European Union, we will ensure by contract that the same level of protection is guaranteed as in Switzerland or the European Union. This can be done by standard data protection clauses of the European Commission or a supervisory authority or approved and authorised codes of conduct together with binding and enforceable obligations of the recipient or authorised certification mechanisms together with binding and enforceable obligations of the recipient.
If data is transferred to a company in the USA, we ensure that this company is certified in accordance with the Swiss/ EU-US Privacy Shield Agreement, thus ensuring that the level of data protection in Switzerland and the EU is maintained. If certification is missing, we obtain the necessary guarantees by contract.
We only store personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the individual purposes for which the data was collected.
We take data security very seriously and use appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against unauthorized access by third parties. We are continuously improving our security measures in line with technological developments.
Within our website we use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) procedure in connection with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser. You can tell whether an individual page of our website is being transmitted in encrypted form by the closed display of the lock symbol in the status bar of your browser.
Individual data processing operations
Provision of the website and creation of log files
When you call up our website, the provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser transmits to us. These are:
- Server name
- IP address
- Operating system
- Device type
- Browser name and version
- Date and time of the server request
This data cannot be assigned to a specific person and there is no consolidation of this data with other data sources. Log files are stored to guarantee the functionality of the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. This is our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
The data is only stored for as long as it is necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. Accordingly, the data is deleted at the end of each session. The storage of the log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website, you therefore have no possibility to object to it.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser on your next visit. This allows us to save certain settings (such as language settings or location information) so that you do not have to re-enter them when you return to the website.
Right of objection
The cookies are stored on your computer. You therefore have full control over the use of the cookies. You can delete them completely or deactivate or restrict their transmission by means of changing the settings in your browser. If you deactivate cookies for our website, it may not be possible to use all the functions of the website to their full extent.
Right of objection
If you no longer wish to keep your account, you can delete it yourself in your profile settings. This will irrevocably delete all your personal data (not the user content). If you want to participate on the platform again, you have to register again. All user content will remain for the purpose of transparency and traceability, but will be assigned to an anonymous user.
Contact by e-mail
You have the possibility to contact us by e-mail. If you contact us by e-mail, the following data will be processed:
- e-mail address
- Content of your e-mail
- Subject of your e-mail
- Contact information you provide (e.g. name, surname, telephone number if applicable, address)
Your details will be stored by us for the purpose of processing your enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. According to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, pre-contractual measures or our legitimate interests in the processing of the enquiry according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO serve as the legal basis.
We will only store your data for as long as is necessary to process your enquiry or as long as we are required to do so by law.
We would like to point out that e-mails can be read or changed without authorisation and unnoticed during transmission. E-mails can be rejected by the spam filter if they are identified as spam by certain features.
Use of Matomo
On our platform we use the web analysis service software Matomo (www.matomo.org), a service of the provider InnoCraft Ltd, 150 Willis Street, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand, ("Matomo"). With Matomo, pseudonymised user profiles can be created and evaluated. Cookies can be used for this purpose (see above for the cookie concept). Among other things, the cookies enable the recognition of the Internet browser. The data collected with Matomo technology (including your pseudonymised IP address) are processed on our servers.
The information generated by the cookie in the pseudonymous user profile is not used to personally identify the visitor of this platform and is not merged with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym.
Matomo is used for statistical analysis of user behaviour for optimisation and marketing purposes. This is also where our legitimate interests lie in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO which serve as the legal basis for data processing.
The data collected with Matomo technology (including your pseudonymised IP address) is processed on the Matomo cloud server in Germany in compliance with the DSGVO.
Right of objection
You can prevent the storage of cookies and thus the analysis by Matomo by means of settings in your browser
