On our website we use cookies and similar technologies (for the sake of simplicity all of these are summarized under the term “cookies”). These are small files that are saved on your computer, tablet computer or smartphone when you visit our website. In this way, the portal can save certain entries and settings (e.g. login, language, font size and other viewing preferences) over a period of time and you do not need to apply them again on each subsequent visit and when navigating in the portal.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called session cookies. These will be automatically deleted when you log out or close the browser. Other cookies remain stored on your computer beyond the respective usage process and enable us or our partner companies (third-party cookies) to recognize your browser on your next visit to our website.

You can refuse the use of unnecessary cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser or the cookie banner. Please note, however, that this can affect the possibilities regarding the use of our website.

We use the cookie banner by Borlabs (Borlabs Cookie) to obtain your consent to use cookies. For more information about the storage of data in Borlabs Cookie refer to What information does Borlabs Cookie store? For further information about cookies, including how to manage, refuse or delete them, visit


In order to display our content correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, on our website we use the Google Fonts Web API (“Google Fonts”) to display fonts. The service is provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, or if your habitual residence is in the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland, Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (collectively referred to as “Google”).

The fonts embedded via Google Fonts are cached in your transfer browser. If your browser does not support Google Fonts or prevents access, content is displayed in a standard font. When retrieving fonts to display our website, your browser sends HTTP requests to Google Fonts. These http requests include:

  • The IP address used by the respective user to access the Internet.
  • The requested URL on the Google server.
  • HTTP headers, including the user agent describing website visitors’ web browser and operating system versions.
  • The referrer (i.e. the webpage where the Google font is to be displayed).

According to Google, the company does not use any information collected by Google Fonts to create profiles of end users or for targeted advertising. However, it is currently unclear for what further purposes and where Google processes this data. Processing on servers outside of Switzerland or the European Union (e.g. in the USA) is possible. For more information about Google Fonts, see Frequently Asked Questions  |  Google Fonts  |  Google Developers and in Google’s privacy policy: Privacy Policy – Privacy & Terms – Google.

We do not collect any personal data through the integration of Google Fonts. The legal basis for the integration of Google Fonts and the associated data transfer to Google is your consent.

You can object to data processing by Google Fonts by objecting to the delivery of the fonts by Google in the cookie banner, disabling JavaScript in your browser or installing a JavaScript blocker. Please note that this can lead to functional restrictions on the website.


Based on our legitimate interests, we link to the following social media on our website:

  • LinkedIn
  • Instagram
  • YouTube

Our website only integrates these social media as an external link. A processing of your personal data therefore only takes place when you click on the links. You will then be forwarded to the website of the respective provider. We have no influence on data that is then collected by the social networks. If you do not want the providers mentioned to receive your data, please do not click on the links.

For further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of your personal data, please refer to the data protection notices of the respective networks. There you will also find further information on your rights in this regard.


We treat your personal data strictly confidentially and only pass it on based on your consent, to comply with our legal obligations or to pursue a legitimate interest.

In particular we may transfer your personal data to:

  • IT service providers for our company (hosting and data storage) or providers to whom we outsource certain technical support services for our site or suppliers of customer relationship management systems.
  • Third parties to whom we have outsourced support services such as service partners helping us process your donation.
  • Google in the context of using Google Fonts.
  • Regulatory and other state authorities, if required by legal or statutory requirements.

We will only disclose your personal data to the extent that this is strictly necessary to achieve the intended purpose. We have taken all necessary measures to ensure that external service providers who have access to your data have implemented physical, electronic and managerial security measures to protect your data.


If we transmit data to a country that does not have appropriate data protection, we ensure an appropriate level of protection by employing contracts accordingly, or we act on the basis of the following statutory/legal exemptions: consent, performance of the contract, the establishment, execution or enforcement of legal claims, overriding public interests, published personal data, or the need to protect the integrity of the persons in question.


Personal data is stored for as long as there is a legal obligation to retain it. In addition, personal data is stored as long as it is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected and as long as there is a legitimate interest in the personal data, e.g. to pursue or defend against legal claims, for archiving purposes, for IT security or to check conflicts of interest.

The personal data that you provide to us when using the services offered on our website, or that you otherwise provide to us via the e-mail contact address, will generally be stored by us until you request us to delete it, until you revoke your consent to its storage, or when the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request) and we have no legal obligation or legitimate interest in storing it.

If we conclude a contract, we will retain contract-related personal data (including business records and communications) for a period of 10 years, starting from the moment of contract termination. Exceptions apply to documents that are subject to longer retention obligations and data whose retention is required for evidentiary purposes or other good cause under applicable law.

The session cookies are deleted when the browser is closed, while the permanent ones may have a different lifetime, which differs depending on the role of the cookie.


The data received by us through our website will be stored locally and on cloud servers, provided by Microsoft in Switzerland and the European Union.


We take technical and organizational security precautions to protect your personal data from manipulation, loss, destruction or against access by unauthorized persons and to ensure the protection of your rights and compliance with the applicable data protection regulations. The measures taken are intended to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of your data as well as the availability and resilience of our systems and services when processing your data. They are also intended to quickly restore the availability of your data and ensure access to them in the event of a physical or technical incident.

Our security measures also include the encryption of your data. Upon transmission of your data to us, your data is encrypted by Transport Layer Security (TLS) / Encryption Https. All of the information you enter online is processed through an encrypted transmission route. This means that this information cannot be shared with anyone or cannot be viewed by unauthorized third parties.

Our data processing and our security measures are carried out in accordance with the current state of technology. We also take our own in-house data protection very seriously. Our employees and the service companies we engage are committed to confidentiality and compliance with the data protection regulations. In addition, they will be granted access to the personal data only to the extent necessary.


This website is intended for an adult audience. Children under the age of 16 are prohibited without the consent of their parents or legal guardians to transmit their personal data to us or to register for a service. If we determine that such data has been transmitted to us, it will be deleted immediately.

  • Right to information: you have the right to know why your personal data is collected, what happens to it and how long it will be kept.
