  • Even if the sender and recipient are located in Switzerland, data may be transferred uncontrolled abroad, where data protection might not be comparable to Switzerland;
  • Electronic messages may contain viruses or other malware which may result in various types of damages. For anti-virus purposes, the use of up-to-date browser versions and the installation of antivirus software which is updated on an ongoing basis is recommended;

Captcha
We use Google reCAPTCHA (hereinafter referred to as «reCAPTCHA») on our websites. The provider is Google Ireland Limited («Google»), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

The purpose of reCAPTCHA is to determine whether data entered on our websites (e.g. information entered into a contact form) is being provided by a human user or by an automated program. To determine this, reCAPTCHA analyses the behaviour of the website visitors based on a variety of parameters. This analysis is triggered automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the site. For this analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates a variety of data (e.g. IP address, time the website visitor spent on the site or cursor movements initiated by the user). The data tracked during such analyses are forwarded to Google.

reCAPTCHA analyses run entirely in the background. Website visitors are not alerted that an analysis is underway.

For more information about Google reCAPTCHA and to review the Data Privacy Declaration of Google, please follow these links: policies.google.com/privacyand www.google.com/recaptcha/intro/android.html.

Search Engine
Our websites use Google's Custom Search Engine (CSE) as their main search engine. The provider is Google Ireland Limited («Google»), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. The embedded search facility enables full-text search for content on our publicly accessible websites. This search facility can be accessed via the search box embedded in the page header of the individual websites concerned.

When you enter a search term into the search box and then hit return or click on the search symbol, you activate the search function and your results will be shown on a results page, which downloads the Google search results using a Google plug-in. In this way data is transferred to the search service.

The plug-in developed and provided by Google is embedded by the operator in the search results page. When the search results page is accessed, the plug-in enables automated communication (data exchange) between the search results page displayed and Google. The use of the search function provided by Google encompasses a dynamic transfer of data via Google.

Data is not shared with Google until you conduct a search and thereby access the search results page. By using the search function within the search results page, you will at the same time share your data with Google, but if you use our websites without using Google's user-defined search function, no data will be shared with the search engine provider (Google).

By using the search function and thus accessing the search results page, you consent to the sharing of data with Google. This includes for example the search terms you enter and the IP address of your device.

If you are at the same time logged in with Google, Google can allocate the information directly to your user profile. More information about how Google uses users' data can be found in their data protection statement at policies.google.com.

Video Services
Our website uses plug-ins of the YouTube platform, which is being operated by Google Ireland Limited («Google»), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

We use YouTube in the expanded data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode ensures that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. Nevertheless, this does not necessarily mean that the sharing of data with YouTube partners can be ruled out as a result of the expanded data protection mode. For instance, regardless of whether you are watching a video, YouTube will always establish a connection with the Google DoubleClick network.

As soon as you start to play a YouTube video on our website, a connection to YouTube’s servers will be established. As a result, the YouTube server will be notified, which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account while you visit our site, you enable YouTube to directly allocate your browsing patterns to your personal profile. You have the option to prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

Furthermore, after you have started to play a video, YouTube will be able to place various cookies on your device. With the assistance of these cookies, YouTube will be able to obtain information about our website visitor. Among other things, this information will be used to generate video statistics with the aim of improving the user friendliness of the site and to prevent attempts to commit fraud. These cookies will stay on your device until you delete them.

Under certain circumstances, additional data processing transactions may be triggered after you have started to play a YouTube video, which are beyond our control.

For more information on how YouTube handles user data, please consult the YouTube Data Privacy Policy at policies.google.com.

Social Plugins
radicant gives you the option to use social media buttons on our websites. Thereby, we employ a solution, by which the buttons on the website are included as a graphic only with a link to the relevant social media website. As long as you don’t click on the buttons, no data is being transmitted to the social media websites. Information about the use of personal data in the social media networks is available in the providers’ conditions.
