Disclaimer / Data protection

Subject to the EU General Data Protection Regulation DSGVO, from 25 May 2018

General Information

The provisions below serve to provide information as to the manner, extent and purpose for collecting, using and processing personal information by the provider.

The website of Gilgen Logistics AG is subject to Swiss data protection law, in particular pursuant to the Federal Data Protection Act (DSG) and any applicable foreign data protection law such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union (EU). The EU recognizes that Swiss data protection law ensures adequate data protection.

Our website can generally be used without entering personal data. Where personal data is entered on our websites (e.g. name, address or e-mail address), this is always on a voluntary basis where possible and exclusively for the purpose specified. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit consent.

We would like to point out that online data transfer (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security loopholes. This means seamless protection against access by third parties is not possible.

In the processing of personal data necessary for complying with a contract for the contracting party in question, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual actions.

Contact information published by third parties in line with the obligation to provide legal information may explicitly not be used for sending advertising and information materials which have not specifically been requested. The operators of the page specifically reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited sending of advertising, e.g. via spam e-mails.

For this purpose your browser has to establish a direct connection to Google servers. Google thus becomes aware that our web page was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web fonts is done in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our website. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer. Further information about handling user data, can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s privacy policy at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

 

Server-Log files

We host our website at Internetgalerie AG, Thun, Switzerland. The provider (or its web space provider) collects data about every access to the web content (so-called server log files). The access data includes: name of the website requested, file, date and time of the request, volume of data transferred, message about successful request, browser type with version, operating system of the user, referrer URL (the page previously visited) and the requesting provider. The provider only uses the log file for statistical evaluations for the purpose of the operation, security, and optimization of the web content. However, the provider reserves the right to check the log files subsequently where concrete indications give rise to the justified suspicion of unlawful use. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR with information security as a legitimate interest.
