We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law. Moreover, if and to the extent that the EU GDPR is applicable, we process personal data according to the following legal bases in connection with Art. 6 para. 1 GDPR: lit. a) Processing of personal data with the consent of the affected person. lit. b) Processing of personal data for the performance of a contract with the affected person and for carrying out corresponding pre-contractual measures. lit. c) Processing of personal data for the fulfillment of a legal obligation that we are subject to under any applicable EU law or under any applicable law of a country in which the GDPR is partially or fully applicable. lit. d) Processing of personal data to protect vital interests of the affected person or another natural person. lit. f) Processing of personal data to protect the legitimate interests of us or third parties, provided that the fundamental freedoms and fundamental rights and interests of the affected person do not prevail. Legitimate interests are, in particular, our business interest in being able to provide our website, information security, the enforcement of our own legal claims, and compliance with Swiss law. We process personal data for the duration necessary for the respective purpose or purposes. In the case of longer retention obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we restrict processing accordingly.
