In addition, we will pass on your data to third parties as far as it is necessary for the use of the website and the execution of the contract, namely the provision of the services you require and the analysis of your user behavior. The use of the data forwarded for this purpose by third parties is strictly limited to the stated purposes.

Various third-party service providers are explicitly mentioned in this Privacy Policy (e. g. in the section "Cookies").

If the standard of data protection in a country is deemed to be unacceptable by Swiss standards or in respect of the EU General Data Protection Regulation, we shall use a contract to ensure that your personal data is protected at all times in accordance with Swiss legislation and the EU General Data Protection Regulation.

An overview of the service providers and their location can be found in the previous section ("Disclosure of data to third parties"). However, certain third-party service providers mentioned in this privacy policy have their registered office in the US (see "Cookies"). Further explanation on data forwarding to the US can be found under “Cookies”.

If you may prefer to disable cookies on this site and on others. The most effective way to do this is to disable cookies in your browser. Most browsers allow the cookies setting to be changed so that cookies are automatically deleted from your device upon termination of each session, completely blocked or accompanied by a warning message prior to their storage. Cookies that had been set prior to the changes to the browser settings will continue to work until you delete them.

Besides the functional cookies that are essential or even mandatory for this website to work, Datatrans use the non-functional and Marketing related cookies. 

For the purposes of needs-based design and the continuous optimization of our pages, we use the web analysis service Google Analytics. In this respect, pseudonymized user profiles are created and small text files (‘cookies’) stored on your computer and used. Information generated by the cookie about your use of this website, such as 

  • the browser type/version

  • the operating system used

  • the referrer URL (previous page visited)

  • the host name of the accessing computer (IP address)

  • the time of the server request

  • the device

is sent to servers of Google Inc., a company of the holding company Alphabet Inc., in the US and stored there. As part of this, before this data is sent within the member states of the European Union or other states that are party to the agreement on the European Economic Area and Switzerland, the IP address is truncated through this website’s IP anonymisation (‘anonymizeIP’). The anonymised IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not consolidated with other data from Google. The entire IP address is sent to a Google server in the US and truncated there only in exceptional cases. In these case, we ensure by contractual means that Google Inc. observes a sufficient level of privacy protection. 

The information is used to analyse use of the website, to compile reports about website activities and to provide us with further services relating to website and internet use for the purposes of market research and needs-based design for these websites. This information is also forwarded to third parties where this is required by law or if third parties have been commissioned to process this data. Under the terms of Google Inc., under no circumstances will the IP address be used in connection with other data relating to the user. 

Users can prevent Google’s collection of the data generated by the cookie that relates to a user’s use of the website (including their IP address) and Google’s processing of this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available via the following link:

As an alternative to the browser plug-in, users can prevent data collection by Google Analytics on the website in future by clicking on this link. By doing so, an opt-out cookie is stored on the user’s end device. To delete user cookies (see ‘Cookies’ above), the link must be clicked again.

In order to manage cookies and pixels for tracking tools and other tools, we also use Google Tag Manager. The Tag Manager tool itself is a cookie-free domain and does not collect any personal data. Instead, the tool triggers other tags that may in turn collect data. If you have performed a deactivation at domain or cookie level, this remains in place for all tracking tags implemented using Google Tag Manager.

For the sake of completeness, we note that as part of US legislation, the US authorities are able to take surveillance measures, under which the general storage of all data sent from the European Union to the US is possible. This takes place without distinction, limitation or exception, on the basis of the objective pursued and without objective criteria that would allow it to limit access by US authorities to personal data and its subsequent use to specific, strictly limited purposes that justify access to this data.

For users residing in EU Member States, please note that, from the point of view of the European Union, the US does not have sufficient data protection levels due, inter alia, to the issues mentioned in this section. To the extent that we have explained in this privacy policy that recipients of data (such as Google, Facebook and Twitter) are located in the US, we will ensure that your data is protected at an appropriate level by our partners.
