Privacy Statement

This data privacy statement contains information on how and for what purposes we collect, store, process and forward your personal data. It also informs you of your rights with respect to the protection of your data.

2. Collection of Your Personal Data

We collect your personal data if you contact us in person, by telephone, by email or using the contact form on our website. We also collect and process personal data from publicly accessible sources.

The personal data collected and processed by us includes, in particular, personal and contact data as well as other personal data that you provide to us when contacting us.
Since data transmission on the Internet (e.g. e-mail) without appropriate security measures (e.g. encryption) offers no protection against access by third parties, we ask you to send confidential information only by encrypted e-mail. If you only visit the website and do not contact us, HubSpot's privacy policy applies:


No identification is made by us on the basis of this data. You can prevent cookies from being stored by setting your browser software accordingly. Our website only uses a cookie to detect bots and no tracking is done with cookies.

3. Purposes of Processing

We process data that you provide to us, for example, in the context of a business relationship or other inquiries.
The personal data provided to us will only be processed for the purpose for which you provided the data.
Personal data that we have collected from publicly available sources are mainly used for marketing purposes.

4. Data Recipients

The main recipients of your personal data are our employees who need access to the data in the context of an existing or potential business relationship or to process your request.
Your personal data will only be transferred to external third parties if this is permitted or required by law or if you have consented to the transfer of the data.

5. Transmission of Data Abroad

If your personal data is transferred to countries outside the European Union and Switzerland (so-called third countries), we ensure, as far as possible, by means of contracts, that the recipient of the data also respects your personal rights and complies with the legal requirements of data protection.

6. Your Rights

The law provides for various rights in the context of data protection, which you can exercise at any time. We will be happy to explain to you below how you can assert your rights with regard to the personal data we process. This does not apply to personal data that we only process as an order processor. In such cases, we will be happy to refer you to the respective person responsible.

Revocation of Consent

If you have given your express consent for the collection, processing and disclosure of your personal data, you may revoke your consent in whole or in part at any time.
The revocation of consent or the request for any adjustment must be made in writing. As soon as we have received your written revocation and no law requires further processing of your data, processing will cease. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Information and Provision of Copies

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to request information about the origin, recipients and purpose of the processing of your stored personal data. Furthermore, you have the right to request a copy of the personal data stored by us. The provision of the copy is in principle free of charge.
For data protection reasons, information or a copy will only be provided after clear identification (e.g. via ID or passport).
Information from third parties in whose secrecy there is an overriding private or public interest is excluded from information and release.

Right to Data Portability

You have the right to have your digitally processed personal data handed over to you in a common, machine-readable format. Upon request, the data can also be transferred to a third party.

Right to Rectification

If you discover or believe that the data processed about you is incorrect or incomplete, you have the right to have it corrected.

Right to Restriction of Processing

You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. In this case, the data will be blocked for further processing.
Your data will also be blocked or processing restricted in the following cases:
- For the duration of the review, if you dispute the accuracy of the personal data processed by us.
- If the processing of your personal data is unlawful.
- If your personal data is no longer required for the original purpose, but the data is required to comply with legal retention obligations or to exercise, defend or enforce legal claims.

Objection to Processing

If the legal basis for processing your personal data is our legitimate interest, you have the right to object to the processing. Unless there are overriding interests in the individual case, we will comply with your request.

Retention and Deletion

Personal data is retained for as long as it is necessary for the fulfillment of our contractual and legal obligations or for the purpose for which it is processed. Data that is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of contractual or legal obligations will be deleted. Exempt from this are data for which (for example, commercial or tax law) retention obligations exist.
In addition, you have the right to request the deletion of your personal data at any time.

Right to Complain to a Supervisory Authority

You have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of your personal data violates data protection law. In Switzerland, you may contact the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner, Feldeggweg 1, CH-3003 Bern.
We reserve the right to update our privacy practices and this Privacy Policy on an ongoing basis to reflect any changes in relevant legal requirements or societal needs. Possible changes to our data protection practices will be announced here accordingly. Please note the current version date of the privacy policy.
