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.

To learn more, please visit By using this WEBSITE, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

We also use Google AdWords, an analysis service from Google, and conversion tracking as part of Google AdWords. Google AdWords places a cookie for conversion tracking on the hard drive of your computer (so-called "conversion cookie") when you click on an ad placed by Google. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages on our WEBSITE, Google and we can recognize that you have clicked on the ad and have been redirected to this page.

The information obtained with the help of conversion cookies is used to create statistics. Through these statistics, we learn the total number of users who clicked on the ad placed by Google and accessed a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag.

In addition to conversion tracking, we also use the functions

  • Remarketing
  • Target groups with common interests
  • User-defined target groups with common interests
  • Target groups ready to buy
  • similar target groups
  • demographic and geographic focus.

With the remarketing function of Google and other providers, we reach users who have already visited our WEBSITE. This allows us to present our advertising to target groups that are already interested in our products or services. AdWords also determines which common interests and characteristics users of our WEBSITE have based on user behavior on websites in Google's advertising network ("Display Network") over the last 30 days and with the help of the contextual search engine. Based on this information, AdWords then finds new potential customers for marketing purposes whose interests and characteristics are similar to those of the users of our WEBSITE. The target group-specific remarketing is carried out through the combined use of cookies, e.g. Google Analytics cookies and Google DoubleClick cookies.

6. social media

a. We use social media to showcase our work through common and current communication channels. Each social media has its own guidelines according to which your personal data is processed when you visit its pages. For example, if you watch one of our videos on YouTube, you must explicitly agree to accept cookies on the YouTube page. The same applies to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, XING and LinkedIn.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing of your data by the provider, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, can be found in the privacy notices of the providers.

By using the WEBSITE and its services, the user agrees that his/her data may be transmitted to and processed by third parties.

In doing so, we guarantees compliance with the principles of Swiss data protection law or an equivalent level of protection abroad. Regardless of whether we ourself or other companies from the group store and/or process the user's data, their employees may only view or process the data if this is necessary for the fulfillment of their tasks in the group company.

We have taken technical and organizational measures to ensure that the regulations on data protection are observed both by us and by external service providers working for us. During unencrypted transmission on an open network (for example, when you send us messages or other information), data can be read, modified or destroyed by unauthorized third parties.
