Legal information

We are committed to protecting your privacy. Please read our data protection statement below.

Scope of application

The data protection statement applies to all Pro Helvetia websites. Compliance with data protection regulations by third party websites to which Pro Helvetia’s websites are connected via a link cannot  be guaranteed.

Data protection

Based on article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution and on the Federal data protection regulations, every person is entitled to protection of their privacy and protection against improper use of their personal data. Pro Helvetia adheres to these provisions. Personal data are treated with strict confidentiality and are neither sold nor disclosed to third parties.

In close cooperation with our hosting providers, we endeavour to protect our databases as best possible from unauthorised access, loss, abuse and falsification.

When our website is accessed, the following data are saved in log files: IP address, date, time, browser request and general information about the operating system or browser. These usage data constitute the basis for anonymous statistical evaluations, which allows Pro Helvetia to identify trends and improve its offerings accordingly.

When you register on our website, your contact data will be added to a separate database that is not associated with the anonymous log files. You may cancel your registration at any time.

YouTube

This website uses embedded videos that are hosted on the YouTube platform. “YouTube” refers to YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

We use YouTube’s “privacy-enhanced mode” to embed videos. As a result, a cookie is stored on your computer only when the video is actually played.
