2. Terms and Legal Basis
Personal data refers to any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual. An affected person is an individual about whom personal data is processed.
Processing includes any operation or set of operations performed on personal data, regardless of the means and methods used, such as collection, recording, storage, alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure, dissemination, erasure, or destruction of personal data.
The European Economic Area (EEA) consists of the member states of the European Union (EU) as well as the Principality of Liechtenstein, Iceland, and Norway. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) refers to the processing of personal data as the processing of personal data.
2.2 Legal Basis
If and to the extent that the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is applicable, we process personal data based on at least one of the following legal bases:
- Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR for the necessary processing of personal data for the performance of a contract with the data subject or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.
- Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR for the necessary processing of personal data to safeguard our legitimate interests or those of third parties, provided that the fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override those interests. Legitimate interests include, in particular, our interest in exercising our activities and tasks in a sustainable, user-friendly, secure, and reliable manner, as well as being able to communicate about them, ensuring information security, protecting against misuse, enforcing our legal claims, and complying with Swiss law.
- Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR for the necessary processing of personal data to fulfill a legal obligation to which we are subject under any applicable law of member states in the European Economic Area (EEA).

3. Type, Scope, and Purpose
We process those personal data that are necessary to exercise our activities and tasks in a sustainable, user-friendly, secure, and reliable manner. Such personal data may include categories of inventory and contact data, browser and device data, content data, meta or metadata, usage data, location data, sales data, as well as contract and payment data.
We process personal data for the duration that is necessary for the respective purpose(s) or as required by law. Personal data that is no longer necessary for processing will be anonymized or deleted.
We may have personal data processed by third parties. We may jointly process or disclose personal data to third parties. Such third parties are primarily specialized service providers whose services we utilize. We ensure data protection even with such third parties.
We process personal data only with the consent of the data subject, unless the processing is permissible for other legal reasons. Processing without consent may be permissible, for example, for the performance of a contract with the data subject and for corresponding pre-contractual measures, to safeguard our overriding legitimate interests, if the processing is evident from the circumstances, or after prior information.
In this context, we particularly process information that a data subject voluntarily provides to us when contacting us, for example, by postal mail, email, instant messaging, contact form, social media, or telephone, or when registering for a user account. We may store such information, for example, in an address book, a customer relationship management system (CRM system), or similar tools. When we receive data transmitted about other individuals, the transmitting individuals are obligated to ensure data protection for these individuals and to ensure the accuracy of this personal data.
We also process personal data that we receive from third parties, obtain from publicly accessible sources, or collect in the course of our activities and tasks, to the extent and as long as such processing is permissible for legal reasons.
4. Personal Data Abroad
We generally process personal data in Switzerland and the European Economic Area (EEA). However, we may also export or transmit personal data to other countries, particularly for processing purposes.
We may export personal data to all countries and territories on Earth as well as elsewhere in the Universe, provided that the local laws ensure adequate data protection, as assessed by the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) or in accordance with the decision of the Swiss Federal Council, and, if applicable, the decision of the European Commission ensuring adequate data protection under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
We may transfer personal data to countries where the law does not ensure adequate data protection, provided that data protection is ensured by other means, particularly based on standard data protection clauses or other appropriate safeguards. In exceptional cases, we may export personal data to countries without adequate or suitable data protection if the specific data protection requirements are met, such as the explicit consent of the data subjects or a direct connection to the conclusion or performance of a contract. Upon request, we are happy to provide individuals with information about any guarantees or provide a copy of the guarantees.
5. Rights of Data Subjects
Data subjects whose personal data we process have rights under Swiss data protection law. These include the right to information as well as the right to rectification, erasure, or blocking of processed personal data.
Data subjects whose personal data we process can, to the extent that the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is applicable, request confirmation free of charge as to whether we process personal data concerning them. In this case, data subjects can request information about the processing of their personal data, restrict the processing of their personal data, exercise their right to data portability, as well as correct, erase ("right to be forgotten"), block, or complete their personal data.
Data subjects whose personal data we process can, to the extent that the GDPR is applicable, revoke their consent granted at any time with effect for the future and object to the processing of their personal data at any time.
Data subjects whose personal data we process have the right to lodge a complaint with a competent supervisory authority. The supervisory authority for data protection in Switzerland is the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC).
