Thank you for your interest in our website. The protection of your personal data during collection, processing and use on the occasion of your visit to our website is an important concern to us.
1. personal data
Personal data is information that can be used to determine your identity. This includes your name, address, postal address and telephone number. Information that is not associated with your identity (such as the number of users of a website) is not included. In principle, you can use our online offer without disclosing your identity.
There are logs for the statistical evaluation of website accesses. These logs contain the accessed URL´s and IP addresses. Data that could possibly allow identification (IP address) are not stored permanently. We cannot draw any conclusions about the user himself, but only statistically record how often which page was called up and where these calls came from, e.g. via Google search.
When you request information, order e-books or make other inquiries, we ask you for your name and other personal information. You are free to choose whether or not to provide this information. We store your data on specially protected servers in Zurich, Switzerland. Access to it is only possible for a few authorized persons. They are responsible for the technical, commercial or editorial support of the contents and servers.
If the usage or traffic data is required for our services, it will be stored for a maximum of six months after collection of the data. If the data is required to comply with existing legal, statutory or contractual retention periods (e.g. invoices), this data is also stored beyond this period. However, this data is blocked and only accessible to a few authorized persons via passwords.
The person responsible for data processing on this website within the meaning of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) is Mr. Silvan Kuhn, Soorpark, 9606 Bütschwil, 071 982 70 40, firstname.lastname@example.org. The person responsible for processing personal data is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data.
2. disclosure of personal data to third parties
We use your personal information only for the purpose of its use by us. We do not pass the data on to third parties without your express consent. Insofar as we are obliged to do so by law or court order, we will pass on your data to bodies entitled to receive such information.
In order to make visiting our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies on various pages. These are small text files that are stored on your end device. Some of the cookies we use are deleted after the end of the browser session, i.e. after closing your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your end device and enable us or our partner companies (cookies from third parties) to recognize your browser during your next visit (persistent cookies). If cookies are set, they collect and process certain user information such as browser and location data as well as IP address values to an individual extent. Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period, which may vary depending on the cookie. In some cases, cookies are used to simplify the ordering process by saving settings (e.g. remembering the contents of a virtual shopping basket for a later visit to the website). If personal data is also processed by individual cookies implemented by us, the processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO either to implement the contract or in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO to safeguard our legitimate interests in the best possible functionality of the website and a customer-friendly and effective design of the page visit. We may cooperate with advertising partners who help us to make our website more interesting for you. For this purpose, cookies from partner companies are also stored on your hard drive (cookies from third parties) when you visit our website. Please note that you can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and can decide individually whether to accept them or whether to accept them in certain cases or generally. Each browser differs in the way it manages the cookie settings. This is described in the help menu of each browser, which explains how you can change your cookie settings. These can be found for each browser under the following links: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari or Opera. Please note that if cookies are not accepted, the functionality of our website may be restricted.

If you subscribe to our e-mail newsletter, we will regularly send you information about our offers. Mandatory information for sending the newsletter is your e-mail address, as well as title, surname and first name. We use the opt-in procedure to send the newsletter. This means that we will only send you an e-mail newsletter after you have expressly confirmed that you agree to receive it.

When you register for the newsletter, we store your IP address entered by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) as well as the date and time of registration in order to be able to track any possible misuse of your e-mail address at a later point in time. The data collected by us when you register for the newsletter will be used exclusively for the purposes of advertising in the newsletter. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time via the link provided for this purpose in the newsletter or by sending a corresponding message to the responsible person named at the beginning.

8. data analysis by Freshpage
Freshpage enables us to subdivide interested parties and customers according to different categories (so-called tagging). The address entries can be subdivided according to gender, personal preferences (e.g. vegetarian or non-vegetarian) or customer relationship (e.g. customer or potential customer).
9. storage period
The duration of the storage of personal data is determined by the respective legal retention period (e.g. commercial and tax retention periods). After this period has expired, the corresponding data is routinely deleted if it is no longer required for contract fulfilment or contract initiation and/or if we no longer have a justified interest in further storage.

We pass on your payment data to the commissioned credit institution within the scope of payment processing, insofar as this is necessary for payment processing. If payment service providers are used, we inform about this explicitly below. The legal basis for the passing on of the data is here art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. b DSGVO.
When paying via PayPal, credit card via PayPal, direct debit via PayPal or - if offered - "purchase on account" or "payment by instalments" via PayPal, we pass on your payment details to PayPal (Europe) S.a.r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter referred to as "PayPal") within the framework of the payment processing.

Further information on the use of data for advertising purposes by Google, setting and objection options can be found on the Google websites: www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners/ ("Use of data by Google when using the websites or apps of our partners"), www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads ("Use of data for advertising purposes"), www.google.de/settings/ads ("Manage information Google uses to display advertising") and www.google.com/ads/preferences/ ("Determine which advertising Google shows you").
To be able to evaluate our website statistically, we use the program AWStats. The program is a free web analysis software. It is used to evaluate log files that web servers create on the basis of visitor requests. The program does not use any cookie files for the evaluation. The statistical analysis takes place via the log files, which also contain IP addresses. As a rule, these data cannot be assigned to specific persons. This data is not merged with other data sources, and the data is deleted after statistical evaluation. In contrast to other statistical programs, AWStats does not transmit any data to an external server. The program is installed on your own server. For example, the transfer of data abroad is avoided, as our servers are located in Switzerland (CH).
13. social media

You can recognize the Facebook plugins by the Facebook logo or the "Like" button on our page. You can find an overview of the Facebook plugins here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

Google Web Fonts
This page uses so-called web fonts from Google for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly. For this purpose, however, the browser you are using does not connect to Google's servers, but accesses Worldsoft's servers in Switzerland. This means that Google is not aware that your IP address has been used to access our website.
The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online services. If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font will be used by your computer.
We use "Google reCAPTCHA" (hereinafter "reCAPTCHA") on our websites. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google").
The purpose of reCAPTCHA is to check whether the data input on our websites (e.g. in a contact form) is made by a person or by an automated program. To this end, reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior of the website visitor using various characteristics. This analysis begins automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website. For the analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, length of stay of the website visitor on the website or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis is forwarded to Google.
The reCAPTCHA analyses run completely in the background. Website visitors are not informed that an analysis is taking place.
Data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting his web offers against abusive automated spying and against SPAM.
This page uses the Google Maps map service via an API. Provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. To use the features of Google Maps, it is necessary to store your IP address. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transfer. The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers and an easy retrievability of the places indicated by us on the website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. You can find more information on the handling of user data in Google's data protection declaration: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
