Data protection and data security are a top priority for us. We adhere strictly to the applicable data protection laws in Switzerland. We employ technical and organizational security measures to protect personal data adequately against unauthorized access, manipulation, loss and destruction and review them at regular intervals.
1. DATA COLLECTION
(a) We process personal details of Users only in order to perform our services. We collect and process personal details (e.g. names, addresses, gender, email and telephone numbers, etc.) of Users who transmit them when registering or using the platform. In addition, the IP addresses of Users, the web pages visited, the date and time and the browser software used are recorded automatically when Users access our website. We collect information using tracking technology such as cookies and tags. Users can determine through personal settings whether to accept or disable cookies or other tracking technology or whether to be warned prior to the use of such technology. The blocking or deactivation of such features can restrict or preclude the use of the platform.
2 PURPOSES OF DATA PROCESSING

(i) to provide our services in accordance with these GTC,

We will have the right to pass such aggregated, non-personally identifiable data to third parties.
3 DISCLOSURE OF DATA

5 GOOGLE ANALYTICS
On our website we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google. Cookies are saved on the Users’ computers which allow an analysis of the Users’ use of the website.
The information generated by the cookie about the use of the public part of our website is, as a rule, transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. We use the service on our website with activated IP anonymization. This means that on our website, your IP address is shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area and therefore anonymised. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide further services related to the use of the website and the Internet to us as operator of the website.
The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

In addition, the collection of data generated by the cookies and related to the use of the website (including the IP address of the User) to Google and the processing of this data by Google can be prevented by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
6 SOCIAL PLUGINS
We use social plugins (“plugins”) from various social networks.
When you visit a web page containing plugins, the browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of the respective social network. The contents of the plugins are transmitted from the respective social network directly to the browser and integrated by the latter into the website. By integrating the plugins, the social network receives the information that the device used by the User has accessed the website.
If you are logged in to the respective social network, your visit of our website will be assigned to your account on the respective social network. If you interact with the plugins, for example, by using the Facebook “Like” button or make a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly to the respective social network and stored there.
Please note that we receive no information about the content of the transmitted data or of the use of these by the respective social network.
After you have provided us with their email address, we will send you news on our company, services and products from time to time.
We use Mailchimp to send and analyze the opening and clicking rates of the newsletter, as well as application emails (for example confirming a registration). Mailchimp is provided by The Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave, NE Suite 5000 Atlanta, GA 30308 USA.
The data (e-mail address, if necessary name, IP address, date and time of your log-in) are stored on servers of this provider. However, personal data may not be used by this provider for purposes other than sending e-mails on behalf of us.
