Based on Article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution and the data protection provisions of the Confederation (Data Protection Act, DPA), every person has the right to protection of their privacy as well as protection against misuse of their personal data. We comply with these provisions.
The responsible body within the meaning of the data protection laws, in particular the EU General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), is:
Markus Enck, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Q.C.M. holding AG
You can exercise the following rights at any time using the contact details provided by our data protection officer: Information about your data stored by us and its processing, correction of incorrect personal data, deletion of your data stored by us, restriction of data processing if we are not yet allowed to delete your data due to legal obligations, objection to the processing of your data by us and data portability if you have consented to the data processing or have concluded a contract with us. If you have given us consent, you can revoke this at any time with effect for the future. You can contact the supervisory authority responsible for you at any time with a complaint.
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as stipulated by the various storage periods provided for by law. After the respective purpose has ceased to exist or these periods have expired, the corresponding data is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected by means of a cookie. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider and similar. This is exclusively information that does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person. This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the contents of web pages requested by you and is compulsory when using the Internet. In particular, it is processed for the following purposes: Ensuring a smooth connection setup of the website, ensuring a smooth use of our website, evaluating system security and stability as well as for other administrative purposes. The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest from the aforementioned data collection purposes. We do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person. Recipients of the data are only the responsible body and, if applicable, order processors. Anonymous information of this kind may be statistically evaluated by us in order to optimise our website and the technology behind it.
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption procedures (SSL) via HTTPS.
If you contact us by e-mail or contact form regarding questions of any kind, you give us your voluntary consent for the purpose of contacting you. In order to do so, you must provide a valid e-mail address. This is used for the assignment of the enquiry and the subsequent response to it. The provision of further data is optional. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and for possible follow-up questions. Personal data will be automatically deleted after your enquiry has been dealt with.
We use Google Maps on our website. Google collects and processes the IP address of the visitor. When you visit a website on which Google Maps is integrated, your IP address and your location data (the latter usually not without your consent) are transmitted to Google, regardless of whether Google Maps is actually used or you are logged into your Google account. Your IP address will be assigned to your Google account if you are logged in there when you visit our website. You can prevent the collection of data relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: Browser Add On to deactivate Google Analytics.
We use Typekit web fonts from Adobe Fonts for the visual design of our website. Adobe Fonts is a service provided by Adobe Systems Software Ireland Companies (4-6 Riverwalk, Citywest Business Campus, Dublin 24, Republic of Ireland; hereinafter «Adobe»), which gives us access to a font library.
To integrate the fonts we use, your browser must establish a connection to an Adobe server in the USA and download the font required for our website. This provides Adobe with the information that our website was accessed from your IP address.
We use Vimeo components on this website to embed videos on our internet pages so that they can be played via your internet browser when you visit our internet pages. This process requires that Vimeo processes the IP address assigned to you, as without this the content could not be sent to the browser. Vimeo recognises when you visit one of our pages on which we have embedded a Vimeo video, provided you are logged in to Vimeo. This information is transmitted to Vimeo even if you do not click on the Vimeo video. Vimeo collects this information and associates it with your Vimeo account. For more information on data protection at «Vimeo», please see the provider's data protection declaration at: https://vimeo.com/privacy
We reserve the right to adapt this data protection declaration so that it always complies with the current legal requirements or in order to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection statement will then apply to your next visit.
