The website of Swiss Business Protection AG (hereinafter referred to as 'swissbp') is in principle subject to Swiss data protection law, in particular the Federal Data Protection Act (DSG).
Thank you very much for your interest in our company. Data protection is particularly important to us. In principle, swissbp's website can be used without providing personal data. However, if a person wishes to make use of special services of our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the statutory data protection requirements. By means of this data protection declaration, our company wishes to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, this data protection declaration will inform the persons concerned about their rights.
As the person responsible for processing personal data, swissbp has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as completely as possible. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can in principle have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, each person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, such as telephone.

Social Media Plugins
On our website we use social plugins from the social networks Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Xing and YouTube to make our company better known. The responsibility for the data protection-compliant operation is to be guaranteed by their respective providers. The integration of these plugins by us takes place in the way of the so-called two-click method in order to protect visitors of our website in the best possible way:
Our website uses so-called social plugins ("plugins") of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The plugins are marked with a Facebook logo or the addition "Social Plug-in from Facebook" or "Facebook Social Plugin".
You will find an overview of the Facebook plug-ins and their appearance under the following link: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins
If you call up a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the page. Through this integration, Facebook receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook profile or are not logged on to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there.
If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign your visit to our website directly to your Facebook profile. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking on the "Like" button or making a comment, this information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on your Facebook profile and displayed to your Facebook friends.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy can be found in Facebook's data protection information under the following link: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php
If you do not want Facebook to associate the data collected through our website directly with your Facebook profile, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website. You can also completely prevent the loading of Facebook plugins with add-ons for your browser, e.g.

Our website uses so-called social plug-ins ("plug-ins") of the microblogging service Twitter, which is operated by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA ("Twitter"). The plugins are marked with a Twitter logo, for example in the form of a blue "Twitter bird". An overview of the Twitter plugins and their appearance can be found below under the following link:
If you call up a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Twitter servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Twitter directly to your browser and integrated into the page. Through the integration, Twitter receives the information that your browser has called the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a profile on Twitter or are not logged in to Twitter. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a Twitter server in the USA and stored there.
If you are logged in to Twitter, Twitter can assign your visit to our website directly to your Twitter account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the "Twitter" button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Twitter server and stored there. The information is also published on your Twitter account and displayed to your contacts there.

If you do not want Twitter to associate the data collected via our website directly with your Twitter account, you must log out of Twitter before visiting our website. You can also completely prevent the loading of Twitter plugins with add-ons for your browser, e.g. with the script blocker "NoScript" according to the following link: noscript.net
We use components of the LinkedIn network on our site. LinkedIn is a service of LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Each time you visit our site that is equipped with such a component, that component will cause the browser you are using to download an appropriate representation of the LinkedIn component.
This process tells LinkedIn which specific page of our site is being visited. If you click on the LinkedIn "Recommend button" while logged into your LinkedIn account, you can link the content of our pages to your LinkedIn profile. This enables LinkedIn to assign the visit to our pages to your LinkedIn user account.
We have no influence on the data LinkedIn collects through this, nor on the extent of this data collected by LinkedIn. We also have no knowledge of the content of the data transmitted to LinkedIn. Details about the data collection by LinkedIn as well as about your rights and settings can be found in the data protection information of LinkedIn. You will find this information under
We use components of the XING.com network on our site. These components are a service of XING AG, Dammtorstrasse 29-32, 20354 Hamburg, Germany. Each time you visit our website that is equipped with such a component, the component causes the browser you are using to download a corresponding display of the component from XING.
So-called social plugins ("plugins") from YouTube are integrated on our website.
You-Tube is an internet video portal that enables video publishers to post video clips and other users to view, evaluate and comment on them free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete film and television programmes, but also music videos, trailers or videos made by users themselves can be accessed via the Internet portal.
YouTube is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
Each time a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated into one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the YouTube component in question to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. Further information on YouTube can be found at youtube.com/yt/about/de/. As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google obtain information about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.
If the person concerned is logged in to YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognizes which specific subpage of our website the person concerned is visiting by calling up a subpage containing a YouTube video. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the person concerned.
YouTube and Google receive information through the YouTube component that the person concerned has visited our website if that person is logged into YouTube at the same time as accessing our website, regardless of whether the person clicks on a YouTube video or not. If the data subject does not want YouTube and Google to receive such information, they may prevent the transmission by logging out of their YouTube account before visiting our website.
We sometimes use Matomo on our websites to collect the number of visitors. In order to tailor the content of the website to the needs of visitors, so-called metadata is collected, which can be statistically evaluated. For this function, the web analysis service Matomo is integrated, which stores a cookie in the visitor's web browser. The IP address of the visitor is stored in a form which does not allow any conclusions (last octet is replaced by .000). Swiss Business Protection AG may delete this data at any time.
Matomo is a product of InnoCraft Ltd, 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand. The used service (use of the product Matomo) is operated by the company Ops One AG (Zurich). The data collected with this service (including your pseudonymised IP address) is processed and stored on servers in Switzerland. The data is stored for 720 days.
