In cooperation with our hosting providers, we make every effort to protect the databases as well as possible against unauthorized access, loss, misuse, or forgery.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g., communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. 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 in accordance with the following description. This website can be visited without registration. Data such as pages called up or the name of the file called up, 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, address, or e-mail address, are collected voluntarily as far as possible. The data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.
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 is processed. Processing includes any handling of personal data, irrespective of the means and procedures applied, in particular the retention, disclosure, acquisition, deletion, storage, modification, destruction, and use of personal data.
We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law. In other respects, we process personal data – insofar and to the extent that the EU DSGVO is applicable – in accordance with the following legal principles in connection with Art. 6 Para. 1 DSGVO:
Lit. a) Processing of personal data with the consent of the person concerned.
Lit. b) Processing of personal data to fulfill a contract with the data subject and for the implementation of appropriate pre-contractual measures.
Lit. c) Processing of personal data for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which we are subject under any applicable law of the EU or under the applicable statute of any country in which the DPA is appropriate in whole or in part.
Lit. d) Processing of personal data to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person.
Lit. f) Processing of personal data to safeguard the legitimate interests of third parties or us, except where such interests are overridden by fundamental freedoms and rights or by the importance of the data subject. Legitimate interests include, in particular, our commercial interest in being able to provide our website, information security, the enforcement of our legal claims, and compliance with Swiss law.
We process personal data for the duration necessary for the purpose or purposes in question. In the case of longer-term storage obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we restrict processing accordingly.
This website uses SSL/TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as the requests you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
The provider of this website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- The hostname of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
These data cannot be assigned to specific persons. A consolidation of this data with other data sources is not carried out. We reserve the right to subsequently check this data if we become aware of concrete indications of illegal use.
Services from third parties
This website may use Google Maps for embedding maps, Google Invisible reCAPTCHA for protection against bots and spam, and YouTube for embedding videos.
Google is committed to ensuring an appropriate level of data protection in accordance with the American-European and the American-Swiss Privacy Shield.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact data you provide there, will be stored by us to process the inquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
If you would like 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 sending the requested information and do not pass them on to third parties.
You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address, and its use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example, by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter.

This website uses so-called web fonts, which are provided by Google, for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly. If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font from your computer will be used.
The operator of this website has integrated components from the company etracker. Etracker is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, collection, and evaluation of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data about which website a person concerned came to a website from (so-called referrers), which sub-pages of the website were accessed, or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and to analyze the cost-benefit of internet advertising.
The operating company of etracker is etracker GmbH, Erste Brunnenstraße 1, 20459 Hamburg, Germany.
Etracker places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. Each time you access one of the individual pages of this website on which an etracker component has been integrated, the respective etracker component automatically triggers the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned to transmit data to etracker for marketing and optimization purposes. As part of this technical process, etracker obtains knowledge of data that is subsequently used to create pseudonymous user profiles. The usage profiles thus obtained are used to analyze the behavior of the person concerned who has accessed the website of the operator of this website and are evaluated with the aim of improving and optimizing the website. The data collected via the etracker component will not be used to identify the person concerned without the prior separate and explicit consent of the person concerned. This data is not merged with personal data or with other data containing the same pseudonym.
The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent etracker from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, cookies already set by etracker can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
Furthermore, the data subject has the option of objecting to the collection of data generated by the etracker cookie and relating to the use of this website, as well as to the processing of this data by etracker, and to prevent such processing. To do this, the person concerned must press the set cookie button under the link http://www.etracker.de/privacy?et=V23Jbb, which sets an opt-out cookie. The opt-out cookie set with the objection is stored on the information technology system used by the data subject. If the cookies are deleted on the data subject’s system after an objection, the data subject must call up the link again and set a new opt-out cookie.
However, with the setting of the opt-out cookie, it is possible that the Internet pages of the data controller may no longer be fully accessible to the data subject.

We process the data of our customers in accordance with the data protection regulations of the Federal Republic of Germany (Data Protection Act, DSG) and the EU-DSGVO within the scope of our contractual services.
For this purpose, we process inventory data (e.g., customer master data, such as names or addresses), contact data (e.g., e-mail, telephone numbers), content data (e.g., text entries, etc.), contract data (e.g., subject matter of the contract, duration), payment data (e.g., bank details, payment history), usage and metadata (e.g., within the scope of the evaluation and performance measurement of marketing measures). Those affected include our customers, interested parties, and their customers, users, website visitors, or employees as well as third parties. The purpose of the processing is to provide contractual services, billing, and customer service. The legal basis of the processing is derived from Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO (contractual services), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO (analysis, statistics, optimization, security measures). We process data that is necessary for the justification and fulfillment of the contractual services and point out the necessity of their disclosure. Disclosure to external parties will only be made if it is necessary within the scope of a contract. When processing the data provided to us within the scope of an order, we act in accordance with the instructions of the client and the legal requirements of order processing in accordance with Art. 28 DSGVO and do not process the data for any other purposes than those specified in the order.
We delete the data after expiry of statutory warranty and comparable obligations. The necessity of storing the data is checked at irregular intervals. In the case of legal archiving obligations, the deletion takes place after their expiry. In the case of data that has been disclosed to us by the client within the scope of an order, we delete the data in accordance with the requirements of the order, in principle after the end of the order.
We process the data of our customers, clients and interested parties (uniformly referred to as “customers”) in accordance with the data protection regulations of the Federal Republic of Germany (Data Protection Act, DSG) and the EU-DSGVO in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b. DSGVO to provide them with our contractual or pre-contractual services. The data processed in this context, the type, scope, and purpose of such processing and the necessity of processing them shall be determined by the underlying order. This basically includes the customer’s inventory and master data (name, address, etc.), as well as contact data (e-mail address, telephone, etc.), contract data (the content of the order, fees, terms, details of the mediated companies/ insurers/ services) and payment data (commissions, payment history, etc.). We may also process the information on the characteristics and circumstances of persons or objects belonging to them if this is part of the subject of our order. This can be, for example, information on personal circumstances, mobile or immobile material goods.
Within the scope of our assignment, it may also be necessary for us to process special categories of data in accordance with Art. 9 Para. 1 DSGVO, in particular, data relating to the health of a person. For this purpose, we will obtain the express consent of the customer, if necessary, in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a., Art. 7, Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. a DSGVO.
Insofar as it is necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or legally required, we disclose or transmit the data of the customers within the scope of coverage requests, conclusion and processing of contracts, data to providers of the brokered services/objects, insurers, reinsurers, broker pools, technical service providers, other service providers, such as, e.g., cooperating associations, as well as financial service providers, credit institutions and investment companies as well as social security institutions, tax authorities, tax consultants, legal advisors, auditors, insurance ombudsmen, and the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) or Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin). Furthermore, we can engage subcontractors, such as sub-brokers. We obtain the consent of the clients, provided that such consent is required for disclosure/transmission (which may be the case, for example, in the case of special categories of data pursuant to Art. 9 DSGVO).
The deletion of the data is carried out after the expiry of legal warranty and comparable obligations, whereby the necessity of the storage of the data is checked at irregular intervals. In all other respects, the statutory storage obligations apply. In the case of legal archiving obligations, the deletion takes place after their expiry.
We process the data of our contractual partners and interested parties as well as other clients, customers, clients or contractual partners (uniformly referred to as “contractual partners”) in accordance with the data protection regulations of the Federal Republic of Germany (Data Protection Act, DSG) and the EU-DSGVO in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b. DSGVO to provide them with our contractual or pre-contractual services. The data processed in this context, the type, scope, and purpose of such processing and the necessity of processing it, shall be determined by the underlying contractual relationship.
The processed data includes the master data of our contractual partners (e.g., names and addresses), contact data (e.g., e-mail addresses and telephone numbers) as well as contract data (e.g., services used, contract contents, contractual communication, names of contact persons) and payment data (e.g., bank details, payment history).
As a matter of principle, we do not process special categories of personal data, unless they are part of a commissioned or contractual processing.
We process data which are necessary for the justification and fulfillment of the contractual services and point out the necessity of their disclosure if this is not evident to the contractual partners. Disclosure to external persons or companies will only be made if it is necessary within the scope of a contract. When processing the data provided to us within the scope of an order, we act in accordance with the instructions of the client and the legal requirements.
When using our online services, we may store the IP address and the time of the respective user action. The storage is based on our legitimate interests, as well as the interests of the users in protection against misuse and other unauthorized use. As a matter of principle, this data is not passed on to third parties unless it is necessary to pursue our claims in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO or there is a legal obligation to do so in accordance with Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. c. DSGVO.
The data is deleted when the data is no longer required for the fulfillment of contractual or legal duties of care and for dealing with any warranty and comparable obligations, whereby the necessity of storing the data is checked at irregular intervals. In all other respects, the statutory storage obligations apply.
Administration, financial accounting, office organization, contact management
We process data in accordance with the data protection regulations of the Federal Republic of Germany (Data Protection Act, DSG) and the EU-DSGVO within the framework of administrative tasks as well as the organization of our operations, financial accounting, and compliance with legal obligations, such as archiving. In doing so, we process the same data that we process within the scope of providing our contractual services. The basis for processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c. DSGVO, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO. Customers, interested parties, business partners, and website visitors are affected by the processing. The purpose of and our interest in the processing lies in the administration, financial accounting, office organization, archiving of data, i.e., tasks which serve to maintain our business activities, perform our tasks and provide our services. The deletion of data in relation to contractual services and contractual communication corresponds to the information mentioned in these processing activities.
In doing so, we disclose or transfer data to the financial administration, consultants, such as tax consultants or auditors, as well as other fee agencies and payment service providers.
Furthermore, we store information on suppliers, event organizers, and other business partners based on our business interests, e.g., to contact them at a later date. This mainly company-related data is stored permanently.
Note regarding data transmissions to the USA (United States of America)
For the sake of completeness, we would like to point out that users based in Switzerland are subject to monitoring measures by US authorities, which generally allow the storage of all personal data from Switzerland – which has been transferred to the USA.
This is done without differentiation, restriction or exception based on the objectives pursued and without any objective criterion that would make it possible to limit the access of the US authorities to the data and their subsequent use to very specific, strictly limited purposes that could justify both access to the data and interference associated with its use. We also draw your attention to the fact that there are no legal remedies available in the USA for data subjects from Switzerland that would allow them to gain access to the data concerning them and to obtain its correction or deletion, or that there is no effective judicial protection against general access rights of US authorities. We explicitly draw the attention of the person concerned to this legal and factual situation to make an appropriately informed decision to consent to the use of his or her data.
Users residing in a member state of the EU are advised that the USA does not have a sufficient level of data protection from the perspective of the European Union.
