We collect your data primarily from you. To the extent permitted, we may also receive personal data from publicly accessible sources (e.g. media, internet) and from public registers (e.g. commercial register, debt collection register, land register). Due to our activities, data may also be made available to us by third parties, in particular by your employees, representatives or other auxiliary persons as well as authorities, etc. Information about you may also be provided in the context of correspondence and meetings with third parties and people in your environment (e.g. address information, recommendations, powers of attorney, information regarding compliance with legal requirements, information from banks, insurance companies and business partners so that we can conclude or process contracts with you ) reach us.

The extent of the data we store and/or process depends on the inventory and type of contractual relationship. our business relationship with you. As a rule, this includes your name, address, birthday, residence permit, marital status, email address, homepage, telephone numbers and your professional activity.

Our data processing is justified by your consent, the execution of a contract or pre-contractual measures, the fulfillment of legal regulations, our interests and other relevant legal bases.


Personal data/personality profiles that are particularly worthy of protection

We do not collect any particularly sensitive personal data via the website (e.g. salary data, privacy data, data about personal religious or ideological views, health data, etc.) and do not create personality profiles based on the data collected when you visit our website.

However, within the framework of a client relationship, it can be assumed that we will receive or collect particularly sensitive personal data from you, insofar as this is appropriate in connection with the mandate. This client relationship is subject to professional secrecy. We attach great importance to protecting your sensitive personal data.

We can create personality profiles using the data collected as part of the client relationship or business relationship in order to be able to provide you with targeted information and advice about certain of our services or products. For this purpose, we use evaluation tools that enable us to communicate as needed and take appropriate advertising measures.

Purpose and legal basis for data processing

We only process your data in the cases provided for by law, primarily within the framework of an existing or potential client relationship. Your data may also be used to clarify any conflict of interests.

The legal basis for data processing includes your consent, the execution of a contract or pre-contractual measures, the fulfillment of legal regulations, the overriding interests of us or third parties and other relevant legal bases.

If you have given us your consent to process your personal data for specific purposes, we will restrict the collection and processing of your data based on this consent, unless there is another legal basis for data collection and processing. Consent given can be revoked at any time, but this has no effect on data processing that has already taken place.



We reserve the right to send you communications containing important legal information and invitations to events electronically or by post.


Transfer of personal data

You can contact us at any time by email. Your e-mail address, the date, the content of your e-mail and subject as well as the contact details you provided will be used for the purpose of processing the request and in the event of follow-up questions, as long as this is necessary to complete your request or we are required by law to do so.

The use of email is not technically secure; It may also happen that emails are not delivered. When sending emails, the data contained therein can leave national borders, even if the sender and recipient are within the country. The confidentiality of emails cannot be guaranteed if encryption is missing or insufficient. Unencrypted emails are therefore not suitable for sending confidential information.

By sending an email, you agree to communication via email with knowledge of the risks described.


Release to third parties

As part of the provision of our services and the provision of our website, we may rely on the services of third parties. In this context, it may happen that we commission third parties to process your personal data. Under certain circumstances we are also obliged to disclose your data to authorities or other third parties.

Your data will only be passed on to third parties with your express consent if there is a legal obligation to do so, if this is necessary to enforce our rights, in particular to enforce claims arising from the contractual relationship, if this is necessary to fulfill the contract or carry out pre-contractual measures ( e.g. the Swiss Post or other courier services, telecommunications service providers, authorities in the context of debt collection measures, etc.) if we have a legitimate interest in this and your contrary interests do not outweigh it and if there is another legal permission, but only to the extent and for as long as

a) the third parties themselves are subject to legal secrecy (e.g. postal and telecommunications secrecy; official secrecy), or

b) the third parties have been contractually obliged by us to maintain secrecy, or

c) we have been released from professional secrecy for a specific matter that is subject to professional secrecy.

Under certain circumstances, your personal data may also be transferred to companies abroad as part of order processing. These companies are committed to data protection to the same extent as we are. If the level of data protection in the country in which data is transferred does not correspond to that of Switzerland or the European Union, we contractually ensure that the same protection as in Switzerland or the European Union is guaranteed. This can be done through standard data protection clauses of the European Commission or a supervisory authority, or approved and approved codes of conduct together with binding and enforceable obligations of the recipient, or approved certification mechanisms together with binding and enforceable obligations of the recipient.

If data is transferred to a company in the USA, we ensure that this company is certified in accordance with the Swiss or EU-US Privacy Shield Agreement and thus ensures that the data protection level of Switzerland or the EU is adhered to. If certification is missing, we obtain the necessary guarantees contractually.


Retention period

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the individual purposes for which the data was collected and as permitted by applicable law. In any case, we store your personal data as long as there are statutory retention requirements or the limitation periods for potential legal claims have not yet expired.


Data security

We take appropriate technical and organizational security precautions to protect your personal data from manipulation, loss, destruction or unauthorized access. This includes, among other things, internal instructions, training as well as appropriate IT and network security solutions, access controls and restrictions, etc.

Rights of the data subject

Within the framework of the data protection law applicable to you and to the extent provided for therein (such as in the case of the GDPR), you have the right to information (in particular information about the purposes of processing, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients of your data, the planned storage period, etc.) , the right to rectification and the right to deletion. Under certain circumstances, you can have the processing of your personal data restricted, object to it and request that certain personal data be released for transfer to another location (so-called data portability).

Please note, however, that we are obliged by legal, commercial and tax law to retain booking documents for at least 10 financial years or longer. We can therefore neither delete nor edit the personal data contained in these documents. To this extent, your request for deletion only applies to future processing.

If services are still outstanding at the time of receipt of your objection, revocation and request for deletion, your personal data will continue to be processed until the business relationship has been completely terminated. Your data protection revocation expressly has no influence on the processing of existing contractual relationships and is not considered an extraordinary reason for termination.

By integrating the plugins, certain information is transmitted to the third-party provider and stored by them. If you are not a member of the relevant social network, it is still possible that they will receive and store your IP address via the social media plugin. If you are logged in to one of the social networks, the third-party providers can directly assign your visit to our website to your personal social media profile. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the “Like”, “+1”, “Tweet” or “Instagram” button, the corresponding information is also sent directly to a third-party server transmitted and stored there. The information will also be published on your social media profile and shown to your contacts there. The purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the third-party providers as well as your related rights and setting options to protect your privacy can be found in the third-party data protection information. If you would like to prevent Google, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram from assigning the data collected via our website to your personal profile in the respective social network, you must log out of the relevant social network before visiting our website.
