Tracking tools

(1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). When you click on an ad placed by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is placed on your computer. These cookies expire after 30 days, do not contain any personally identifiable information, and are not personally identifiable. If you visit certain pages on our website and the cookie has not expired, Google and we may recognize that you clicked on the ad and were directed to that page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. As a result, there is no way that cookies can be tracked through AdWords customer websites.

The information collected through the Conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for Conversion Tracking. This tells customers the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were directed to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, you will not receive any information that personally identifies users.

If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can object to this use by preventing the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly (deactivation option). You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. Further information and Google’s privacy policy can be found at: and

Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google in advance within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA where it will be shortened. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.

Right of access, rectification, cancellation and limitation of processing; right to data transferability

In addition, you have the right to correct incorrect data and the right to delete your personal data, insofar as there is no legal obligation to retain or an act of permissibility which allows us to process the data.

Note on data transfers to the USA

For reasons of completeness, we would like to point out to users resident or domiciled in Switzerland that US authorities have taken surveillance measures in the USA which generally allow the storage of all personal data of all persons whose data has been transferred from Switzerland to the USA. This is done without differentiation, limitation or exception based on the objective pursued and without any objective criterion that would allow the US authorities to limit access to the data and subsequent use thereof to very specific, strictly limited purposes that could justify the interference associated both with access to and use of such data. Furthermore, we would like to point out that in the United States there are no legal remedies available to data subjects from Switzerland that would allow them to access, rectify or delete their data, or that there is no effective legal protection against general access rights of US authorities. We explicitly draw the attention of the data subject to this legal and factual situation in order to make an informed decision to consent to the use of his/her data.

We draw the attention of users residing in an EU member state to the fact that, from the point of view of the European Union, the USA does not have an adequate level of data protection.

Data retention

We store personal data only for as long as is necessary to use the above tracking, advertising and analysis services in our legitimate interest, to provide the above services you requested or for which you have given your consent, and to comply with our legal obligations.

Contract data will be stored by us for a longer period of time, as this is prescribed by statutory storage obligations. Retention obligations that oblige us to retain data result from accounting regulations and tax regulations. In accordance with these regulations, business communications, concluded contracts and accounting receipts must be retained for up to 10 years or, in the case of users resident in France, for up to 5 years. If we no longer need this data to provide the services to you, the data will be blocked. This means that the data may then only be used for accounting and tax purposes.

Right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority

If you reside in an EU country, you have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority at any time.
