Social plugins (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, Youtube)
All social media plugins on our website use the two-click process, meaning that a plugin only starts to record your surfing behaviour when you click on it.
Our partner for producing and distributing direct mail is certified with the Good Priv@cy® seal for data protection (https://www.baumer.ch/unternehmen/zertifizierungen/). Data is transmitted exclusively via an encrypted connection. To keep addresses up to date, address information is maintained via the multisource database of Swisscom Directories AG (https://www.localsearch.ch/en/privacy-statement).
We use the widespread SSL protocol (HTTPS) for visits to our website. You can recognise whether a page of our website is encrypted during transmission by the key or padlock icon that appears in your browser’s address bar. In addition, we use other appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against random or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction, or unauthorised access. Our security measures are continually improved as technology evolves.
We reserve the right to update this privacy statement as needed. The most recent version of this statement, published on our website, applies. Updated: 28.10.2021
