Welcome to my website! I am pleased that you are browsing my website. Data protection and cyber security are my core businesses. Therefore, the careful, honest and legally compliant handling of your data is of particular concern to me. With this privacy statement I inform you about when I or my website collects which data, how it is used and what rights you have regarding your data.
This privacy statement and the data processing mentioned are subject to Swiss law. The Swiss Data Protection Act (DPA) is primarily applicable. Any references to the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the use of its terms are made on a voluntary basis and without recognition of any legal obligation.
The controller in the sense of the data protection legislation is:

Please contact me in case you have any privacy concerns.
What are personal data?
"Personal data" means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ("data subject"). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
As a visitor to this website, personal data is any data that can be related to you personally, e.g. IP address, name, postal address or e-mail address.
What personal data do we process and for what purpose?
Visiting the website
When visiting this website, the following personal data may be stored in the server log files: IP address used, date and time at the time of access, source/reference from which you reached the website, browser used and operating system used. This usage data forms the basis for any statistical and anonymous evaluations, which are used exclusively for the efficient and secure operation of this website and its optimization. The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve these purposes.
In the case of purely informational use of the website, i.e. if you do not send us any information via this website, we only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. This data is deleted as soon as you close your browser.
Contact by you
When you contact me by e-mail, the data you provide (your e-mail address, name and telephone number, if applicable) will be stored by insecor gmbh in order to process your inquiry. We delete the data generated in this context after the storage is no longer necessary, or restrict the processing if there are legal obligations to retain data.
Mandates and services
For the conscientious processing of your mandate, I require minimal information from you, such as name, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number and, if necessary, bank details.
Application procedures and employment
The personal data usually required for this purpose will be collected directly from you and processed transparently for these purposes. As soon as this data is no longer needed, it will either be returned to you or destroyed or deleted.
A company rarely comes alone: of course, for my company to be customer-friendly, smooth and legally compliant, it needs external service providers with specialist know-how such as IT operations, IT security, accounting and marketing. If these service providers need access to your personal data, they are contractually obligated in advance to maintain confidentiality and to comply with the applicable data protection laws.
Use of Google Web Fonts
My website uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly. The browser you use establishes a connection to Google's servers. This enables Google to know that my website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of my online offers. For more information about Google Web Fonts, see the Google Web Fonts FAQ. The Google Web Fonts Privacy FAQ can be found here.
Which cookies does this website use?
This website only uses technically necessary cookies.
What about social media?
My website has links to Twitter, LinkedIN and XING. This is apparent to you in each case (typically via corresponding icons). We have configured these elements to be disabled by default. If you activate them (by clicking on them), the operators of the respective social networks can register that you are on my website and where and can use this information for their purposes. The processing of your personal data is then the responsibility of this operator according to their privacy policies. I do not receive any information about you from them and do not evaluate such data.
What about links to other websites?
What about the security of personal data?
All information that you send to me or my company by e-mail will be used exclusively to process your request and with a view to future contract assignment and fulfillment. Your data will be stored and secured on servers in Switzerland and in compliance with the applicable Swiss laws.
There will be no data processing without a reason, such as the transfer to third parties or personal evaluations. Exceptions are necessary data processing due to technical security incidents, behavior contrary to contract or criminal acts.
All appropriate organizational and technical measures are taken to protect the confidentiality, availability, integrity and accountability of the personal data under my responsibility. However, please note that the confidentiality and integrity of information exchanged via unencrypted e-mail is not guaranteed. This means that information could be read, modified or misused by third parties during transmission.
Finally, it is the responsibility of each individual (natural person and/or company) to protect his or her computer, devices and IT infrastructure accordingly and thus contribute to a safer digital world.
How long is your personal data stored?
We process and store your personal data as long as it is necessary for the fulfillment of our contractual and legal obligations or otherwise the purposes pursued with the processing, i.e. for example for the duration of the entire business relationship (from the initiation, processing to the termination of a contract) as well as beyond that in accordance with the statutory retention and documentation obligations.
In this context, it is possible that personal data will be retained for the time during which claims can be asserted against my company and to the extent that I am otherwise legally obligated to do so or legitimate business interests require this (e.g. for evidence and documentation purposes). As soon as your personal data is no longer required for the purposes stated in this privacy statement, it will in principal and as far as possible be deleted, destroyed or anonymized.
What rights do you have regarding your data?
You have the following legal rights with regard to my company:
- Right to information
- Right to correction
- Right to deletion or destruction
- Right to restriction of processing
- Right to revoke or object to processing
- Right to prohibit certain disclosure of personal data to third parties
- Right to enter a denial of service notice
- Right to data disclosure and transfer
If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or your data protection rights have otherwise been violated in any way, you may contact me by e-mail [firstname.lastname@example.org] or contact and complain to the data protection authority in the jurisdiction in which you live.
We reserve the right to amend this privacy statement at any time with effect for the future. The most recent version is available on this website. Please visit the website regularly to review the applicable privacy statement.
