Principle and scope
This data protection information relates to the processing of personal data in connection with visits to the websites at www.expris.ch. In order to use our websites and related online services or online applications (collectively, Services), we process your personal data (hereinafter also referred to as 'Data'). Please note that this privacy information does not apply to websites of other providers to which our website may link.
Personal data refers to information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. Certain categories of particularly sensitive personal data, such as health data, are specially protected by specific legal provisions. The term processing covers all operations relating to your data, including collection, storage, use, disclosure, archiving or deletion. When processing data, we comply with the Swiss Federal Data Protection Act (DSG), the corresponding Implementing Ordinance (DSGV) and other applicable data protection laws (e.g. the European Data Protection Regulation, DSGVO), where applicable.
In the following, we would like to explain to you what data we collect, for what purpose we use it and what rights you have with regard to your data. If you transmit data to us via third parties, we assume that you are authorized to do so and that the transmitted data is correct. We therefore ask you to inform the third parties concerned about the processing of their data by us and to provide them with a copy of this data protection information or the relevant product information. If we inform you of an updated version of these documents, please also pass on these new versions.
Our employees are regularly trained in data protection issues and are subject to confidentiality obligations. In addition, compliance with data protection regulations is monitored by our data protection department.
We attach great importance to the protection of your personal data. When you use our website and services, we primarily process the data that you provide to us that is necessary for use, as well as the information that we collect directly (see below).
In the course of using our website and services, we collect metadata, such as information about your browser (type and version), your device type (e.g. smartphone or tablet) and your IP address. Furthermore, we collect access data, also called log data. This includes the name of the website accessed, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful retrieval, information on the operating system and details of the last website visited.
We process your data for various purposes in connection with communication with you. This includes in particular answering inquiries, asserting your rights and contacting you in case of queries. In doing so, we primarily use communication data and master data, as well as registration data relating to offers and services used by you. This data may be stored for documentation purposes, training, quality assurance and follow-up inquiries.
Furthermore, we process data for marketing purposes and to maintain customer relations. We may send general or personalized information about our offerings to our users, for example, in the form of irregular contacts by e-mail, mail or telephone, as well as through other channels for which we have contact information from you. You have the option at any time to decline such contacts or to refuse or withdraw your consent to be contacted for promotional purposes. With your consent, we can tailor our online offer more specifically to the needs of our users.
Furthermore, we may use your data for market research, to improve our online offer, our services and, if necessary, for product development.
Finally, we may also store and process your data for security reasons and to control access to our website.
We mainly use data to create server log files in order to perform statistical analyses for the operation of the website, to ensure the security of the IT systems and to optimize the website. In doing so, we primarily use log data. The legal basis for this data processing is our legitimate interest in providing you with a secure and smooth user experience at all times. We also reserve the right to subsequently review the log data if there are concrete indications of unlawful use.
If you contact us via the contact form, we collect your contact data in order to process your request and answer any follow-up questions. This data is transmitted in encrypted form.
If you have provided us with your e-mail address or contacted us directly by e-mail, we may also send you information by e-mail that is related to processing your concerns and questions.
The legal basis for processing your data is based on our legitimate interest in being able to process your online inquiry efficiently and effectively. If the aim of the e-mail contact is to conclude a contract, the data processing is based on the initiation of this contractual relationship.
Your data may be used by us to occasionally inform you about news, new products, services or other services of interest to you from us and possibly our partners.
If you do not wish to consent to the use of your data for marketing purposes, you can inform us accordingly or refuse or revoke your consent to receive marketing information.
Our website or other online publications of ours may embed third-party content, such as maps from Google Maps, fonts from Google Fonts or videos from YouTube.

These external contents are integrated by us in order to provide you with useful information or functions or to optimize your user experience. We do not process any further data. Our legitimate interest in offering you this content or function is therefore the legal basis for this data processing.
We can use Google Fonts on our website to display selected fonts as well as icons and symbols on our website. This is a service provided by Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA).

Each Google Ads customer receives a separate cookie, which, however, is not used for personal identification.
The information collected by the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Google Ads customers and to analyze your browsing behavior for marketing purposes.

YouTube is a service for free storage, distribution, rating and commenting of video clips. We embed the clips directly into our website.

YouTube may at most link your data to your Google user account, provided you are logged in at that time. If you do not wish such an association with your Google user account, please log out of your Google account or adjust the settings in your Google account under "Data and privacy" - "Data from apps and services you use".

Due to the technical structure of the Internet as an open network, secure transmission of your data cannot be guaranteed in all cases. If you send your personal data to us, you always do so at your own risk.
To ensure the protection of your transmitted data, we use encryption mechanisms in accordance with current security standards (Transport Layer Security, TLS). TLS is a protocol for secure data transmission on the Internet and is supported by most browsers. It uses the public key method, in which data is encrypted with a publicly accessible key and can only be decrypted again with a specific private key. Most browsers use a key icon or padlock to indicate whether a connection is secure.
We take various technical and organizational security precautions to ensure the protection of your data within our system. Nevertheless, we would like to point out that despite these measures, there is a risk of data loss, unauthorized access to or manipulation of the data by third parties. Please also note that certain network sections and your computer are outside our controllable security area. As a user, you are responsible for informing yourself about necessary security precautions and for taking the necessary measures within your sphere of influence. Any liability on our part for damages incurred by you as a result of data loss or manipulation is fundamentally excluded.
Retention of data
We store your data only as long as it is necessary for the purposes stated by us or as we are legally or contractually obligated. Data that is no longer necessary for the stated purposes in the future will be deleted by us as part of our regular data maintenance or alternatively anonymized.
This data protection information is not part of the contract and can be changed by us at any time. The version published here applies in each case.
