General information
Based on Article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution and the data protection provisions of the Swiss Confederation (Data Protection Act, DSG), every person has the right to protection of their privacy and protection against misuse of their personal data. The operator of this website take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We handle your personal data confidentially and in compliance with the legal data protection requirements and this Privacy Policy.


In cooperation with our hosting providers, we strive to protect the databases as well as possible from unauthorized access, loss, misuse or falsification.


We would like to point out that data transmitted via the internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can be vulnerable to security gaps. It is impossible to fully protect data against unauthorized access by third parties.


By using this website, you consent to the collection, processing and use of data as described below. This website can be visited without registration. In the process, data such as web pages visited or the name of the files accessed, date and time are stored on the server for statistical purposes without this data being directly related to your person. Personal data, in particular name, address or e-mail address, are collected on a voluntary basis as far as possible. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.


External links
This Privacy Policy applies only to the website of SIRAG AG and not to websites of third parties. Our websites may contain links to other websites that may be of interest to you. However, due to the nature of the internet, we do not guarantee the protection of your personal data on these websites and accept no responsibility for the content of external websites.


This Privacy Policy does not apply to linked websites that are not operated by SIRAG AG. Always exercise caution when opening a link to an external website and read the privacy policy of that site.
How we process your processing data


Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable person. A person whose data is collected and processed is known as a data subject. Processing includes any handling of personal data, regardless of the means and procedures used, in particular the collection, disclosure, acquisition, deletion, storage, amendment, destruction and use of personal data.


We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law. If and insofar as the EU GDPR is applicable, we also process personal data on the following legal bases in conjunction with Art. 6 (1) GDPR:


lit. a) The data subject has given consent to the processing of his or her personal data.
lit. b) Processing is necessary for the fulfillment of a contract to which the data subject is party or for the implementation of corresponding pre-contractual measures.
lit. c) Processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject under applicable EU law or under the applicable law of a country in which the GDPR applies in whole or in part.
lit. d) Processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person.
lit. f) Processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject. Legitimate interests include our business interest in being able to provide our website, information security, the enforcement of our own legal claims and compliance with Swiss law.


We process personal data for the period of time required for the respective purpose or purposes. In the case of longer-term retention obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we restrict processing accordingly.


Security precautions
We take appropriate technical and organizational measures in accordance with the legal requirements, taking into account the state of the art, the implementation costs and the nature, scope, circumstances and purposes of the processing as well as the various probabilities of occurrence and the extent of the threat to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, in order to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk.


The measures include safeguarding the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by controlling physical and electronic access to the data as well as the access to input, transfer, safeguarding of availability and its separation. Furthermore, we take the protection of personal data into account as early as the development or selection of hardware, software and processes in accordance with the principle of privacy by design and privacy by default.


Transfer of personal data
When we process personal data, it may happen that the data is transferred to other places, companies or persons, or disclosed to them. Recipients of this data may include, for example, IT service providers or providers of services and content that are embedded in the website. In such cases, we observe the legal requirements and in particular conclude corresponding contracts or agreements with the recipients of your data that serve to protect your data.


Data processing in third countries
If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA)) or if this is done when we use a third-party service or for the disclosure or transfer of data to third parties (persons, authorities or companies), this will only take place in accordance with the legal requirements.


Subject to express consent or where transfer required by contract or law, we only process data or have data processed in third countries with a level of data protection that is recognized as adequate or on the basis of special guarantees, such as a contractual obligation by so-called standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission, the existence of certifications or binding internal data protection rules. (Art. 44 to 49 GDPR, see EU Commission website:


This website uses cookies. These are small text files stored on your computer that save specific user-related information whenever you visit our website. Cookies help us determine the number of visitors who access our website and how often they use which online services, but also to analyse how the site is used so that we can make it more user-friendly. Cookies may remain stored on your computer beyond the end of a browser session and can be retrieved when you visit the site again. If you do not want this, you should set your internet browser to reject cookies. Please note that if you reject cookies you may not be able to access all functions of our website.


SSL/TLS encryption
This website uses SSL/TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as inquiries you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the padlock icon in the address bar.


If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Server log files


The provider of this website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:


Browser type/version
Operating system used
Referrer URL
Host name of the accessing computer
Time of the server request


This data cannot be associated with any specific person. This data is not merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of specific indications of unlawful use.


Third-party services
The American service provider Google LLC use cookies; as a result, data is transferred to Google’s servers in the USA, whereby we assume that no personal tracking takes place solely through the use of our website.


Google has undertaken to guarantee appropriate data protection in accordance with the US-European and US-Swiss Privacy Shield.


Further information can be found in Google’s privacy policy.


Contact form
Should you send us an inquiry via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, for the purpose of processing the inquiry and answering any follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your consent.


If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an valid e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. No other data is collected. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and will not pass it on to third parties.


You can revoke your consent at any time to the storage of your personal data as well as to the use of the e-mail address and information you provided to receive the newsletter, for example via the unsubscribe link in the newsletter e-mail.


We use third-party e-mail marketing services to disseminate newletter e-mails. Our e-mails may therefore contain a so-called tracking pixel (web beacon) or a similar technique. A tracking pixel is a 1×1 pixel, invisible image that is linked with the user ID of the respective email subscriber.


The use of this services helps us determine whether our e-mails have been opened by the recipients. It also records and analyzes their click behavior. We use this data for statistical purposes and to optimize the content of our news. This enables us to better tailor the information and offers in our e-mails to the individual interests of the respective recipient. The tracking pixel is deleted when you delete the e-mail.


To prevent the use of the tracking pixel in our e-mails, set your e-mail program so that no HTML is displayed in messages.
Google Tag Manager


Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows us to manage our so-called website tags via a single interface and thus integrate Google Analytics and other Google marketing services into our online services. The Tag Manager itself, which implements the tags, does not collect any personal data. For more information about how your personal data is processed, see the link below on Google services. Use Policy:


Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited. If the controller responsible for data processing on this website is located outside the European Economic Area or Switzerland, then data processing for Google Analytics is carried out by Google LLC. Google LLC and Google Ireland Limited are hereinafter referred to as “Google”.


We can use the statistics obtained to improve our services and make them more interesting for you as a user. This website also uses Google Analytics for a cross-device analysis of visitor flows, which is carried out based on a user ID. If you have a Google user account, you can deactivate the cross-device analysis of your usage behavior in the settings by selecting My Data, Personal Data.


The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 (1)(1) (f) GDPR. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google. Please note that we have activated the IP anonymization feature on this website by adding the following code «_anonymizeIp();». This ensures IP addresses are truncated before they are processed, which rules out personal identification. Therefore, if the data collected about you enables personal identification, this is immediately excluded and the personal data deleted.


Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. For exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has committed itself to the EU-US Privacy Shield,


Google Analytics uses cookies. The information generated by cookies about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. You may reject the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to take advantage of all the functions available on this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting and processing the data generated by the cookies and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in that is available via the following link:


You can also prevent the use of Google Analytics by clicking on this link: [ga_optout].


This will store an opt-out cookie on your device, which prevents the collection of your data by Google Analytics on future visits to this website. Please note that if you delete all your cookies on your browser, these opt-out cookies will also be deleted, i.e. you will have to set the opt-out cookies again if you want to continue to prevent this form of data collection. The opt-out cookies are set per browser and device and must therefore be activated separately for each browser, computer or other end device.


Social media plugins
We also use plug-ins from social networks such as Facebook, X (formerly Twitter), YouTube, Pinterest and Instagram on our website. This is demonstrated by the respective social media logos displayed on the site. We have configured these elements so that they are deactivated by default. If you activate them (by clicking on them), the operator of the respective social network can register that you are on our website and in what region, and can use this information for their own purposes. Your personal data will then be processed under the responsibility of that operator and in line with its own privacy policy. The operator will not provide us with any information about you.


How can I prevent third parties from collecting my data?
If you do not want the third-party providers to collect data about you, you can select the disable third-party cookies function in your browser settings. The browser will then no longer send the corresponding personal data to the third-party provider’s server when embedded content is accessed from the website. However, in certain cases, opting for this setting may prevent you from accessing other content on our website.


Data transfer to the USA
Our website includes tools from companies based in the USA. If these tools are activated, your personal data may be transferred to the US servers of the respective companies. We would like to point out that the USA is not deemed a safe third country under EU data protection law. US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as the data subject being able to take legal action against this. It can therefore not be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. secret services) may process, evaluate and permanently store your data on US servers for surveillance purposes. We have no influence on these processing operations.


Rights of data subjects
You have the right of access, to rectification, to erasure, to restriction of processing and the right to object to our data processing, in particular for the purposes of direct marketing, profiling related to such direct marketing and other legitimate interests for processing data, as well as to receive the data that we have stored on your person for the purpose of transfer to another controller (right to data portability) in accordance data protection law and the GDPR. However, we reserve the right to enforce restrictions provided for by law, for example if we are obliged to store or process certain data, have an overriding interest in doing so (to the extent we are legally permitted) or need to use it to assert our claims. If you are expected to incur any costs, we will inform you in advance. We have already explained how you can revoke your consent in section 3. Please note that exercising these rights may conflict with contractual agreements and may have consequences such as premature termination of the contract or incurring costs. We will inform you in advance if this is not already been contractually agreed.


The exercise of such rights usually requires that you clearly prove your identity (e.g. by means of a copy of your ID card in cases where your identity is otherwise not clear or cannot be verified). To assert your rights, you can contact us at the address given in section 1.


Every data subject also has the right to assert their claims in court or to lodge a complaint with the relevant data protection authority. The data protection authority for Switzerland is the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (
