Personal data the user discloses to us when visiting the website are processed in accordance with the Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection (DSG) and other statutory provisions.
Information by which a natural person can be identified (such as name, address, phone number, date of birth, e-mail address, etc.) is deemed personal data. It is generally possible to visit our website without providing any personal data. However, some offers of the website require the provision of personal data (such as online shop, online job application or course enrolment). Personal data are only forwarded to third parties if this is required for technical or legal reasons and/or to execute our offer (such as issue of course certificates or official documents).
Personal data are kept strictly confidential and are not sold to third parties. In collaboration with our hosting providers, we strive to protect our databases from unauthorised access, viruses, data loss, abuse and forgery.
We store the user’s data as long as necessary to execute our online offer and provide the related services and/or as long as we have a legitimate interest in further storage. In all other cases, we erase the personal data, except for such data that we need to retain to meet statutory obligations (such as retention obligations).
When using the Internet, the browser automatically transmits certain data, which are stored by the web server in log-files. They include:
To identify malfunctions and for security reasons, the log files are stored by us for up to 30 days and then deleted. Log files that need to be retained for the purpose of providing proof are exempted from deletion until the relevant incident is finally clarified and may be forwarded to investigative authorities in individual cases.
Cookies are small text files that are sent when the user visits our website and stored in the user’s browser. While the website is used or when it is accessed again, the user’s browser sends the cookie contents back and thus enables the recognition of the user. Certain cookies are automatically deleted after the browser session ends (session cookies). Others are stored in the user’s browser for a specified time and then delete themselves (temporary cookies).
Certain cookies are required for the secure and user-friendly provision of the website. Others serve the analysis of user behaviour (e.g. subpages visited, search queries made) and the statistical evaluation.

The user has the option to stop the use of Google Analytics. To do this, the user can use Google’s browser add-on (not available for mobile devices; only active in the browser in which it was installed).
Alternatively, the user can set an opt-out cookie that prevents Google Analytics from registering any future visits of this website. The opt-out only functions in the browser in which the user activates it. Should the user delete this cookie, he/she needs to reset the opt-out cookie at the next visit.

We use videos from the online platform YouTube (belongs to Google) on our website. When accessing a video, YouTube sets cookies that contain information on the current page and the videos viewed. This information is used to compile video statistics. If the user is logged in under his/her own YouTube account, the information can be allocated to that account. To prevent this from happening, the user needs to log out of YouTube on the browser beforehand. If the user opens a video, this results in a connection with the Google DoubleClick network, which can trigger further data processing operations.

We use Google Maps on our website to display maps. When viewing the maps or using the route planner, Google can collect data about the use of its offer. By using the maps, the user agrees to the collection, processing and use of his/her data by Google, its representatives and third-party providers.
We offer the Facebook «Share» feature on some of our webpages. By integrating the «Share» button with the «Shariff» solution, contact with the Facebook servers in the USA is only established when the button is activated. Facebook thus creates cookies in the user’s browser and obtains information on his/her IP address, the website the user is currently visiting and additional data that are linked to the currently opened website. If the user shares the page, the information collected by Facebook can be allocated to his/her user profile.
