Data protection

What personal information we collect and why we collect

Comments

When visitors post comments on the site, we collect the information displayed on the comment form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and user agent string (which identifies the browser) to help detect spam. From your email address, an anonymized string of characters (also called a hash) can be created and submitted to the Gravatar service to verify that you are using it. The privacy policy of the Gravatar service can be found here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After your comment has been approved, your profile picture will be publicly visible in the context of your comment.

Media

If you are a registered user and upload photos to this site, you should avoid uploading photos with a so-called EXIF GPS location. Visitors to this site may download photos stored on this site and extract their location information.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our website, this may be an agreement to store your name, e-mail address and website in cookies. This is a convenience feature so you don’t have to re-enter all this information when you leave further comments. These cookies are stored for one year. If you have an account and log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personally identifiable information and is discarded when you close your browser. When you log in, we will set some cookies to store your login information and display options. Login cookies expire after two days and display option cookies expire after one year. If you select “Stay signed in” when you sign in, your sign-in will be maintained for two weeks. When you log out of your account, the login cookies are deleted. When you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie is stored in your browser. This cookie does not contain any personally identifiable information and simply references the Contribution ID of the item you have just edited. The cookie expires after one day.

You can prevent the installation of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your browser software. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

Embedded content from other websites

Contributions on this website may contain embedded content (e.g. videos, images, contributions etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves exactly as if the visitor had visited the other website. These sites may collect information about you, use cookies, embed additional tracking services from third parties, and record interactions with such embedded content, including your interaction with the embedded content, if you have an account and are logged on to this site.

With whom we share your data

Based on Article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution and the data protection provisions of the Confederation (Data Protection Act, DSG), every person has the right to the protection of his or her privacy and to protection against the misuse of his or her personal data. We comply with these provisions. Personal data is treated strictly confidentially and is neither sold nor passed on to third parties.

How long we store your data

When you write a comment, it is stored indefinitely, including metadata. In this way, we can automatically recognize and release subsequent comments instead of keeping them in a moderation queue. For users who register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profiles. All users can view, change or delete their personal information at any time (the user name cannot be changed). Website administrators may also view and change this information.

 

What rights do you have to your data?

If you have an account on this site or have written comments, you may request an export of your personal information from us, including any information you have provided to us. In addition, we may ask you to delete any personal information we hold about you. This does not include data that we are required to retain for administrative, legal or security reasons.

Where we send your data to

Visitor comments could be examined by an automated spam detection service.

Liability for links

References and links to websites of third parties are outside the area of responsibility of SAHC. Any responsibility for such websites is rejected. Access to and use of such websites is at the user’s own risk.
