Privacy policy. We
take it seriously.

Our privacy policy

Based on Article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution and the data protection provisions of the Confederation (Data Protection Act, DSG), every person has the right to the protection of his or her privacy and to protection against the misuse of his or her personal data. We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.



In cooperation with our hosting providers, we endeavour to protect the databases as best as possible against unauthorised access, loss, misuse or falsification.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can be subject to security vulnerabilities. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.

By using this website, you consent to the collection, processing and use of data as described below. This website can be visited without registration. Data such as pages accessed or names of files accessed, date and time are stored on the server for statistical purposes without this data being directly related to your person. Personal data, in particular name, address or e-mail address are collected as far as possible on a voluntary basis. The data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.

 

Privacy policy for cookies

This website uses cookies. These are small text files that make it possible to store specific, user-related information on the user's terminal device while he or she is using the website. Cookies make it possible in particular to determine the frequency of use and number of users of the pages, to analyse how the pages are used, but also to make our offer more customer-friendly. Cookies remain stored after the end of a browser session and can be called up again when a new page visit is made. If you do not wish this to happen, you should set your Internet browser so that it refuses to accept cookies.

 

Privacy policy for contact form

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.

 

Privacy policy for newsletter data

If you wish to receive the newsletter offered on this website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further data will not be collected. We use these data exclusively for the dispatch of the requested information and do not pass them on to third parties.

You can revoke your consent to the storage of data, e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the "Unsubscribe" link in the newsletter.

 

Use of Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps API to visually display geographic information. When Google Maps is used, Google also collects, processes and uses data relating to the use of map functions by visitors. For more information about data processing by Google, please refer to the Google Privacy Notice. There you can also change your personal data protection settings in the data protection centre.

 

Privacy policy for Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. To disable Google Analytics, Google provides a browser plug-in here. Google Analytics uses cookies. These are small text files that make it possible to store specific information relating to the user on the user's terminal device. These enable Google to analyse the use of our website offer. The information collected by the cookie about the use of our pages (including your IP address) is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics was extended by the code "gat._anonymizeIp();" in order to guarantee an anonymous recording of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). If anonymization is active, Google abbreviates IP addresses within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, which means that no conclusions can be drawn about your identity. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google complies with the privacy provisions of the Privacy Shield Agreement and is registered with the Department of Commerce's Privacy Shield program and uses the information it collects to evaluate and report on the use of our web sites and to provide other related services to us.

Usage of Google User Data within the Scope Curation Software

For the Scope clients that make use of the Google Docs/Drive integration within the Scope Curation Software, the following points apply:
The integration has the sole purpose of copying a single, user-specified template document and to then extend this new document based on Scope data. There is no other reading or writing of any Drive/Docs data. The user details that are fetched from Google as part of the authentication process are solely used within the Scope of this integration, are kept to a minimum, stored in a safe manner and not shared with any 3rd party.

 

Facebook Pixel, Facebook Custom Audiences and Facebook Conversion

Within our online offer, the so-called Facebook pixel of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or if you are resident in the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (Facebook), is used.

With the help of the Facebook pixel, Facebook is on the one hand able to determine you as a visitor of our online offer as a target group for the presentation of ads (so-called Facebook ads). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to display the Facebook ads placed by us only to Facebook users who have shown an interest in our online offering or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products that are determined on the basis of the websites visited) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called custom audiences). Using Facebook pixels, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads match the potential interest of users and are not annoying. Using Facebook pixels, we can further track the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing if users were referred to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (called conversion).

 

Facebook Privacy Policy

Facebook processes the data in accordance with Facebook's data usage policy. Accordingly, general notes on the presentation of Facebook ads in Facebook's data usage policy. Specific information and details about Facebook pixels and how they work can be found in the help section of Facebook.

 

EU-US Privacy Shield

Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law.

 

Basis

The use of Facebook Pixel and the storage of conversion cookies is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. We have a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both our website and our advertising.

 

Dissension

Although we register legitimate interests to use the Facebook pixel and store "conversion cookies," we offer opt-out options. You may opt out of Facebook pixel collection and use of your information to display Facebook ads. To set what types of ads you see within Facebook, you can go to the page set up by Facebook and follow the instructions on how to set up usage-based ads. The settings are platform-independent, i.e. they are applied to all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices. You may also object to the use of cookies to measure reach and for advertising purposes, via the Network Advertising Initiative's opt-out page, and additionally via the U.S. website aboutads.info or the European website youronlinechoices.com.
