The controller is the natural person or legal entity that single-handedly or jointly with others makes decisions as to the purposes of and resources for the processing of personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, etc.).
A wide range of data processing transactions are possible only subject to your express consent. You can also revoke at any time any consent you have already given us. To do so, all you are required to do is sent us an informal notification via e-mail. This shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness of any data collection that occurred prior to your revocation.

This also applies to any profiling based on these provisions. To determine the legal basis, on which any processing of data is based, please consult this Data Protection Declaration. If you log an objection, we will no longer process your affected personal data, unless we are in a position to present compelling protection worthy grounds for the processing of your data, that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or if the purpose of the processing is the claiming, exercising or defence of legal entitlements (objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR).

You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we automatically process on the basis of your consent or in order to fulfil a contract be handed over to you or a third party in a commonly used, machine readable format. If you should demand the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will be done only if it is technically feasible.
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as purchase orders or inquiries you submit to us as the website operator, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption programme. You can recognise an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line.
If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Within the scope of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right to at any time demand information about your archived personal data, their source and recipients as well as the purpose of the processing of your data.

We herewith object to the use of contact information published in conjunction with the mandatory information to be provided in section “Information Required by Law” to send us promotional and information material that we have not expressly requested.

Personal data is information that can be used to find out 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.
When you visit our website or use our services, the device with which you call up the page automatically transmits log data (connection data) to our servers. Log data includes the IP address of the device you use to access the website or service, the type of browser you use to access the site, the page you visited previously, your system configuration, and date and time information. IP addresses are stored only to the extent necessary to provide our services. Otherwise the IP addresses will be deleted or made anonymous. We store your IP address when you visit our website for a maximum of 7 days in order to recognise and prevent attacks.
If you request information, order e-books or make other enquiries, we will ask you for your name and other personal information. It is up to you to decide whether you want to enter this data or not. We store your data on specially protected servers of the company Worldsoft AG in Switzerland. The EU Commission has certified that Switzerland has a level of data protection comparable to EU law after a corresponding review. Data transfer from the EU to Switzerland is permitted under data protection law. We have concluded a contract with Worldsoft for the processing of order data. Access to this data 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 are required for our services, they 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 will also be stored beyond this period. However, this data is blocked and only accessible to a few authorized persons via passwords.
There are logs for the statistical analysis of website traffic. These contain the requested URLs and IP addresses. Data that may allow identification (IP address) will not be stored permanently. We can not conclude any conclusions about the user, but only statistically record how often which page was called and where these calls came from, e.g. via Google Search.
When you request information, order e-books or make other inquiries, we ask for your name and other personal information. It is up to you to decide whether to enter this information. We store your information on specially protected servers in Zurich in Switzerland. Access to it is only possible to a few authorized persons. These are responsible for the technical, commercial or editorial support of the content and servers.
Insofar as the usage or traffic data are required for our services, they will be stored for a maximum of six months after collection of the data. If the data is required to fulfill existing statutory, statutory or contractual retention periods (such as invoices), that information will also be stored beyond. However, these data are locked and accessible to few, authorized persons via passwords.
This data is not merged with other data sources.
This data is recorded on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The operator of the website has a legitimate interest in the technically error free depiction and the optimization of the operator’s website. In order to achieve this, server log files must be recorded.
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form including the contact data you provided there will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. These data will not be passed on without your consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore carried out exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal e-mail notification to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.
We collect, process and use personal data only to the extent necessary for the establishment, content organization or change of the legal relationship (data inventory). These actions are taken on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual actions. We collect, process and use personal data concerning the use of our website (usage data) only to the extent that this is necessary to make it possible for users to utilize the services and to bill for them.
The collected customer data shall be eradicated upon completion of the order or the termination of the business relationship. This shall be without prejudice to any statutory retention mandates.
The Worldsoft Business Suite (WBS) can be used, among other things, to organize and analyze the sending of newsletters. The data you enter for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter is stored on the servers of Worldsoft AG.
If you wish to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address or telephone number for SMS messages from you, as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address or telephone number provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further data will not be collected or will only be collected on a voluntary basis. We use these data exclusively for the dispatch of the requested information and do not pass these on to third parties.
The data you enter for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored on the servers of Worldsoft AG.
The data entered in the newsletter registration form will be processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You may revoke your consent to the storage of your data, your e-mail address and their use to send you the newsletter at any time, for example via the "Unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations that have already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data that you have stored with us for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and deleted after you cancel the newsletter. This does not affect data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the member area).
If we send newsletters with the help of the WBS, we can determine whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links have been clicked.
The WBS also enables us to subdivide the newsletter recipients according to different categories (so-called tagging). The newsletter recipients can be subdivided according to gender, personal preferences (e.g. vegetarian or non-vegetarian) or customer relationship (e.g. customer or potential customer). In this way, the newsletters can be better adapted to the respective target groups.
Further information is available at: https://www.worldsoft.info/5243/wbs
If you do not want an analysis by WBS, you must therefore unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in every newsletter message.
This does not affect data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the member area, address details for invoicing).
This website uses the Worldsoft Business Suite (WBS). Provider is Worldsoft AG, Churerstrasse 158, 8808 Pfäffikon, Switzerland.
The Worldsoft Business Suite (WBS) is a CRM (Customer Relationship Management) with which data can be organized and analyzed.
If you send us your personal data via a web form, this data is stored on the servers of Worldsoft AG in Switzerland.
The EU Commission has certified that Switzerland has a level of data protection comparable to EU law following an appropriate review. Data transmission from the EU to Switzerland is permitted under data protection law. We have concluded a contract with Worldsoft for order data processing.
We draw your attention to our data protection regulations before transferring your data. By transferring the data, you consent to our collecting, processing and using your personal data within the framework of the statutory regulations.
The purpose of the use results from the connection with the transmission of your data. Your data will be used for the purpose for which it was originally collected.
Data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. The legality of the data processing operations that have already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you have deposited with us will be stored until you revoke your consent. After revocation of your consent, your data will be deleted both from our servers and from the servers of Worldsoft AG. You can find more details in the data protection regulations of Worldsoft AG under:

Our website uses plug-ins of the YouTube platform, which is being operated by Google Ireland Limited („Google“), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
We use YouTube in the expanded data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode ensures that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. Nevertheless, this does not necessarily mean that the sharing of data with YouTube partners can be ruled out as a result of the expanded data protection mode. For instance, regardless of whether you are watching a video, YouTube will always establish a connection with the Google DoubleClick network.
As soon as you start to play a YouTube video on our website, a connection to YouTube’s servers will be established. As a result, the YouTube server will be notified, which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account while you visit our site, you enable YouTube to directly allocate your browsing patterns to your personal profile. You have the option to prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
Furthermore, after you have started to play a video, YouTube will be able to place various cookies on your device. With the assistance of these cookies, YouTube will be able to obtain information about our website visitor. Among other things, this information will be used to generate video statistics with the aim of improving the user friendliness of the site and to prevent attempts to commit fraud. These cookies will stay on your device until you delete them.
Under certain circumstances, additional data processing transactions may be triggered after you have started to play a YouTube video, which are beyond our control.
The use of YouTube is based on our interest in presenting our online content in an appealing manner. Pursuant to Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR, this is a legitimate interest.
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.
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.
Our online offer contains links to other websites. We have no influence on whether their operators comply with data protection regulations.
