This data is collected based on the legitimate interest described above (Article 31(1) DSG or Article 6(1)(f) GDPR, where applicable).

Cookies are small text files that are sent to your computer together with the data actually requested from the Internet. This data is saved on your computer, where it is stored for subsequent access.

We use cookies in a number of areas. Cookies may also be used on websites linked externally – i.e. outside the scope of our editorial responsibility – without our being able to give you advance notice of this.

In particular, session cookies are required for login, as for user-friendliness reasons we use single sign-on for authentication and to control access to various sections of our website. This data is collected based on the legitimate interest described above (Article 31(1) DSG or Article 6(1)(f) GDPR, where applicable).

The legal basis for processing personal data using cookies for analysis or marketing purposes is your consent in line with Article 31(1) DSG or Article 6(1)(a) GDPR, where applicable. You can withdraw your consent at any time using the settings in the cookie consent banner. You can also delete the cookies from your browser at any time.

You may prevent cookies from being stored by using appropriate settings on your browser. If you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

Anaylising data using Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics (GA4), a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (Google), on our website. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer to help analyse your site usage. Information about your access to our website is transferred to a Google server in the United States.

We use the information collected using Google Analytics to evaluate the use of our website and to produce reports about website activities. Google may pass on this data to third parties insofar as this is legally prescribed or the third parties are processing the data on behalf of Google.

The saving of Google Analytics cookies and the use of this analysis tool take place on the basis of Article 31(1) DSG and, where applicable, Article 6(1)(a) GDPR (consent).

You may prevent cookies from being stored by using appropriate settings on your browser. If you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

Pardot analysis tool

We use the Pardot analysis tool from Inc. on our website. Pardot Services utilises two cookies – a “visitor cookie” and a “Pardot app session cookie”. The “visitor cookie” generates an identification number that makes it possible to recognise the browser of returning site visitors. This identification number is a generated numerical code that has no meaning outside of Pardot Services. The “Pardot app session cookie” is only used when a customer logs into the Pardot app as a user. All cookies contain nothing other than the generated numerical code. We use Pardot to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. To this end, we analyse user and click behaviour on our website to better align our communication with customer needs.

The legal basis for using Pardot as an analysis tool and the associated data processing is your consent in line with Article 31(1) DSG or Article 6(1)(a) GDPR, where applicable. You can withdraw your consent at any time using the settings in the cookie consent banner.

Data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer needed for our purposes. In this context, this is the case after three months.

Google maps

We use map material from Google Maps to generate directions. Google Maps is a service provided by Google Ireland Limited that displays maps on our website. Accessing this content on our website creates a connection to the servers at Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, which includes transmission of your IP address and possible browser data such as your user agent. This data is only processed for the purposes mentioned above and to maintain the security and functionality of Google Maps. We must highlight that, in using this Google service, your data may be forwarded to the United States, based on your consent in line with Article 31(1) DSG and Article 6(1)(a) GDPR, where applicable.

We cannot influence how exactly the data is processed or how long it is stored – this is defined by Google Ireland Limited. You can find more information in the Google Maps privacy policy at:

Integration of third-party services and content (“third-party providers”)

Third-party providers of online content such as videos from YouTube, RSS feeds or graphics have access to certain information relating to users of this website (particularly the IP address), depending on the service. The same applies to the use of cookies (particularly from Google Analytics) for easier storage and reuse of user data. Third-party providers may also store this data on websites outside Switzerland (especially in the United States).

We use links to social media on our website. The connection to the provider is not established until you click on the provider’s icon. Data is therefore not automatically transmitted to social media providers when you access our website. We have no way of influencing how the social media providers process your data. You can find more information on this in the respective privacy policies:

For LinkedIn:
For Instagram:
For YouTube:

Personal data is only transmitted to social media service providers when you have given your consent by clicking on the relevant icon. The legal basis for this is Article 31(1) DSG or Article 6(1)(a) GDPR, where applicable.

Data disclosure

We pass on data to third parties that are independently responsible for collecting data. Insofar as this is necessary, we will obtain your consent, or a legal obligation will apply, or it will be necessary for us to do so in order to enforce our rights – particularly to enforce claims resulting from a contractual arrangement.

We also use external service providers, particularly within the scope of operating the website, for logins, for registration, for confirmation purposes relating to sample orders, and for follow-up processing relating to sales. We select our service providers carefully and specify contractually that these service providers only process your data in ways we would be permitted to ourselves.

We must advise you that it is possible that your data will be processed by our service providers, both within the EU/EEA and in countries without an adequate level of data protection. If we use such providers in countries that are not secure, the transmission of data is based on Article 16(2)(d) DSG or Article 46(1)(c) of GDPR, where applicable.

Information, correction, blocking and deletion

You have the right to receive or obtain information about your stored personal data free of charge at any time by writing to Furthermore, you have a right to correct, block, or delete such data, or to restrict or object to its processing, where there is no legal obligation preventing this. You also have the right to make a complaint to the responsible data protection authority, insofar as this right applies to you.

Retention period

We process personal data for as long as it is necessary for the intended purpose, after which time the data is deleted, unless there is a legal obligation to retain the data or we are entitled to further retain the data due to another legal basis or an overriding interest of our own.

Data security

We take appropriate technical and organisational measures to secure personal data.
