Privacy Policy

In terms of the data protection laws: You can reach our data protection officer at the following e-mail address: datenschutz@herbstreith-fox.de.

General Note

Based on Article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution and the data protection regulations of the Swiss Confederation (Data Protection Act, DSG), every person is entitled to protection of his or her privacy and protection against misuse of his or her personal data. The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and according to the legal data protection regulations as well as this privacy policy.

In cooperation with our hosting providers, we make every effort to protect the databases as much as possible against unauthorized access, loss, misuse or forgery.

We point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

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

Notification data

If you enter personal data via the forms on our website and send them to us by sending, the purpose of the data processing depends on the respective form. If you use our contact form, we will use your personal data to process your request. If you provide us with data by other means, the purpose of the data processing also depends on your request.

The legal basis for the collection of data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a and f GPDR. Our justified interest in data collection in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GPDR follows from the fact that we cannot process your request (contact, customer service) without your data.

Processing of personal data

Personal data is all information that relates to an identified or identifiable person. A data subject is a person about whom personal data are processed. Processing includes any handling of personal data, irrespective of the means and procedures used, in particular the storage, disclosure, procurement, deletion, storage, modification, destruction and use of personal data.

We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law. In addition, we process personal data – insofar and to the extent that the EU GPDR is applicable – in accordance with the following legal principles in connection with Art. 6 para. 1 GPDR:
• lit. a) Processing of personal data with the consent of the data subject.
• lit. b) Processing of personal data for the purpose of fulfilling a contract with the data subject and for the implementation of appropriate pre-contractual measures.
• lit. c) Processing of personal data for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which we are subject under any applicable law of the EU or under any applicable law of a country in which the GPDR is fully or partially applicable.
• lit. d) Processing of personal data to protect vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person.
• lit. f) processing of personal data in order to safeguard the legitimate interests of us or of third parties, except where such interests are overridden by fundamental freedoms and rights or by the interests of the data subject. Legitimate interests are in particular our business interest in being able to provide our website, information security, the enforcement of our own legal claims and compliance with Swiss law.

We process personal data for as long as necessary for the respective purpose or purposes. In the case of longer-term storage obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we will limit the processing accordingly.
