SWISSSONIC GMBH welcomes you and would like to familiarize you with the important data protection guidelines of SWISSSONIC GMBH.

SWISSSONIC GMBH and its objectives in the area of data protection. 

We take the protection of personal data very seriously. In the following, we would like to briefly show you how SWISSSONIC GMBH views data protection, how we protect your data and what it means for you when you use our customizable services. Basically, our attitude is that the protection of your privacy is of the utmost importance. That is why compliance with the statutory provisions on data protection is a matter of course for us. 

What are personal data?

Personal data is all information about personal and factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable person. This includes information and details such as your (correct) name, your address or other postal address, the telephone number. Your e-mail address is also included if it is related to your name in such a way that you can be identified. This does not include information that cannot be used to determine your identity. Such information is, for example: all information without any reference to your name, e.g. only your height, only information about gender or age or education or income. In many cases of our interactive services, you have the option of entering such data (without reference to a name). Information of a general nature, for example "15% of our internet users are between 55 and 65 years old" are also not personal data. 
When and where are your personal data collected and stored? 
SWISSSONIC GMBH or the aforementioned online services always ask for your name, address and other necessary information if you want to take out a subscription or order a product, for example. Your personal data is also collected and stored when you use one of our personalized or interactive services or register for them, for example to order a newsletter, take part in a competition or access affordable content. In this case, the personal data required for the respective service and its personalization will be requested. 
What about IP addresses etc.? 
When you access this website, possible identification data (IP address) and other information (date, time, page viewed) are stored on our server for data security purposes. An evaluation of the data, with the exception of statistical purposes and then in anonymous form (ie IP address shortened at domain level), does not take place. All your personal information will be with the  SWISSSONIC GMBH is stored on a specially protected server and is only used for the purposes for which you have made it known to us.

To pass on personal data

In the case of product orders, SWISSSONIC GMBH only uses your personal information within the company and only passes it on to companies that are involved in the fulfillment of the contracts concluded with you. Otherwise, your personal information will not be passed on to third parties unless you have given your express consent or we are obliged to surrender it, for example due to a court or official order.

Collection and processing of user information in pseudonymised form

SWISSSONIC GMBH collects demographic data (i.e. information on age, gender, place of residence, income, occupation, education, etc.) of the users of various services and information about their Internet use. However, the demographic data and the information obtained about user behavior are stored separately from the associated personal information under a pseudonym. A pseudonym is an identifier that replaces the name or other identification features and excludes identification of the person concerned and conclusions about a specific person. 
With the collection of such information, SWISSSONIC GMBH pursues two goals: Firstly, we would like to be able to provide users of our websites with customized online offers with the content and services that are relevant and of interest to them. This gives us the opportunity to offer more individual (but not individualized) content both in terms of editorial and advertising and thus also to increase the personal benefit within our online offers for you. On the other hand, we want to enable our advertising customers to reach the right target group as precisely as possible and without major wastage. SWISSSONIC GMBH publishes z. B. generalized user statistics (e.g. "70% use the online offer XY") to present and describe our services to potential partners, advertisers and other interlocutors or to be able to use them for other legally permissible purposes. 
However, by pseudonymizing and anonymizing the information obtained, your privacy remains protected at all times because the information does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about individual persons. 


SWISSSONIC GMBH also uses cookies to analyze the use of the website, in particular online advertising, and to present you with special offers and services that are of interest to you on the website based on your preferences. In addition, advertising customers should be able to address their target group as precisely as possible and without major wastage. For this purpose z. B. compiled anonymous user statistics and used the data for market research purposes. However, none of the advertisers are provided with data that could be used to identify a specific person. For success analysis, we may use the cookies mentioned above, which store the general preferences of a user. This data may be enriched with further demographic data (e.g. age and gender) in on-site surveys. You will also be informed of this separately in the OnSite survey. The data is stored in the cookie on your computer. By storing the profile under a pseudonym, your data protection is enhanced because the data stored in the cookie do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your specific name. You are entitled to request information about the data stored under your pseudonym at any time. You are also entitled to object to the creation of a user profile at any time with effect for the future.

Information and right of withdrawal

You can request information about the data stored about you or a pseudonym assigned to you at any time free of charge and without delay. In addition, you have the right to object to the further use of your personal data for the future at any time. To do this, you must provide valid proof that this is your account. SWISSSONIC GMBH reserves the right to provide this information electronically. 

In both cases, please contact:
