3. Cookies and other technologies related to the use of our website

We use cookies and similar technologies for certain functions of the website. These are small text files that are stored by our server on your system or terminal device.

Cookies collect data about your IP address, the browser and operating system used, and about the usage of the website. The data theoretically allows the identification of a user. However, we only use cookies for non-personal purposes. In general, the use of cookies is used to evaluate the usage of the website with the aim of enhancing it, making it more effective and safer. Cookies save your settings, for example, so that you do not have to set them anew after each restart.

For this purpose, we use third-party services (such as Google Analytics and Google Search Console or comparable services), which measure and evaluate the usage and performance of the website. Aggregated information is used for this purpose, which does not allow identification of the individual user. However, the third party provider (e.g. Google) may track your usage of the website, combine this data with data from other websites that are also tracked by this third party provider, and use this information for its own purposes and, if necessary, also attribute it to you. This third party is responsible for the processing of your personal data in accordance with the privacy policy of third party. Google’s privacy policy is available here:

You can also use the website without the use of cookies. To do this, you must deactivate the cookies in the settings of your browser. If you deactivate cookies, some displays and functions of the website may only be available to a limited extent.

4. Disclosure of personal data to third parties and transfer to foreign countries

We disclose personal data to third parties in the course of our business activities and for the purposes set out in section 2, to the extent permitted by law. Such third parties are in particular the following entities:

    • Affiliated companies
    • Business partners

These third parties are sometimes located within the country, but may be anywhere in the world. In particular, you should expect your data to be transferred to countries where companies affiliated with us can be found and to other countries in Europe and the USA where our service providers or the third-party cookie providers described above are located (such as Google). The list of names and locations of our affiliated companies can be accessed here: The website and your data are hosted on servers of the company ELAG Elektronik AG in Switzerland.

If we transfer personal data abroad, we take the legally required precautions to protect it. The department mentioned in section 1 is available for further information.

5. Duration of retention

We will retain your data for as long as it is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected, we are legally obliged to do so or we have a legitimate interest in retaining it (e.g. for evidence purposes or for IT security). As soon as your personal data is no longer required for the above-mentioned purposes, it will be deleted or anonymised as far as possible.

6. Data security

We take appropriate technical and organisational security precautions to protect your personal data from unauthorised access and misuse.

We cannot guarantee the confidentiality of electronic communication channels, in particular contact via our contact form or communication by e-mail. The Internet, websites and the electronic transmission of data are generally considered insecure in terms of confidentiality and data security. The transmission of your data via the contact form is not encrypted. It can therefore not be ruled out that data sent in this way can be viewed by third parties and that contacting us can be traced. We recommend that you encrypt your e-mails.

7. Your rights

You have the right to request information about the personal data concerning you as well as its correction or deletion. Under certain circumstances, you also have the right, within the framework of the data protection law applicable to you, to demand that we restrict the processing, hand over the data to you or generally object to the processing by us. To exercise such rights, please contact us at the address given in section 1. If you incur any costs, we will inform you in advance.
We reserve the right to enforce the restrictions provided for by law, for example if we are obliged to retain or process certain data, require it for the assertion of claims or have another overriding interest.
