We collect and use data about your behaviour and preferences to better tailor our offers to you.
When you purchase a product, we process all the data you provide that is necessary for the processing of the contract, such as personal master data, contact data and payment data.

7. Basis for data processing
Your data is processed in accordance with the Swiss Data Protection Act and, in certain areas, the General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union (GDPR) and the United Kingdom (UK GDPR; hereinafter referred to uniformly as GDPR).
If we process data based on consent, we will inform you separately in each case, stating the relevant purposes. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. You can revoke your consent by contacting us in writing. You will find the contact information in section 4.
Insofar as the GDPR applies, we process your data on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR (consent), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR (fulfilment of a contract), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) GDPR (legal obligation) or Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR (legitimate interests).
8. Disclosure of data to third parties
With regard to the provisions set out in section 6, we also transfer your data to service providers such as IT providers, logistics companies, payment providers or providers of the tools listed below.
Furthermore, we also transmit data to authorities if we have a legal obligation to do so.
9. Data transmission abroad
Regarding data transfer to third parties, it is possible that your data will be processed not only in Switzerland. If the legal level of data protection in the corresponding recipient country does not correspond to the level of data protection in Switzerland, we will take appropriate measures to ensure that a transfer may take place, e.g. by concluding the standard contractual clauses of the European Union, or that another legally provided option exists, e.g. by fulfilling a contractual obligation for you or by you giving us your consent.
10. Note on data transfers to the USA
For the sake of completeness, we would like to point out for users resident or domiciled in Switzerland that there are surveillance measures in place in the USA by US authorities 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 any differentiation, limitation or exception based on the objective pursued and without any objective criterion that would make it possible to limit the access of the US authorities to the data and their subsequent use to very specific, strictly limited purposes that are capable of justifying the intrusion associated with both access to and use of this data. Furthermore, we would like to point out that in the USA, there are no legal remedies available to data subjects from Switzerland that would allow them to gain access to the data concerning them and to obtain their correction or deletion, and that there is no effective judicial legal protection against general access rights of US authorities. We explicitly draw the attention of the data subject to this legal and factual situation so that they can make an appropriately informed decision to consent to the use of their data.
We would like to point out to users residing in a member state of the EU that the USA does not have a sufficient level of data protection from the perspective of the European Union – among other things due to the issues mentioned in this section. Insofar as we have explained in this privacy statement that recipients of data (such as Google) are based in the USA, we will ensure either through contractual arrangements with these companies or by ensuring that these companies are certified under the EU or Swiss-US Privacy Shield that your data is protected with our partners with an appropriate level.
11. Duration of data processing
In principle, data is deleted as soon as the purpose has been fulfilled and there are no longer any legal retention obligations.
12. Data security
We have taken technical and organisational measures, which are regularly reviewed and adapted to technical progress, to protect your data from loss, access, misuse or alteration.
13. Your rights
As a data subject, you have the following rights in connection with the processing of your data relevant under data protection law:
- Right to information about what data we store about you and how we process it
- Right to rectify your data
- Right to delete or restrict your data
