Thank you for your interest in our website and our company. The protection of personal data collected, processed and used in the course of your visit to our website is an important concern for us.
Personal data refers to information that can be used to determine your identity. This includes your name, postal address and telephone number. Information which cannot be used to identify you (e.g. the number of visitors to a website) is not classified as personal data. You can use our online services without disclosing your identity.
Should you request information, order eBooks or make other inquiries, we will ask for your name and other personal details. It is up to you whether or not you disclose this information. All submitted data is stored on specially protected servers in Zurich, Switzerland. Only a small number of authorized persons have access to the data. These are the people responsible for the technical, commercial or editorial management of the content and servers.
To the extent that user data or traffic data is required for the provision of our services, the data is stored on our servers for a maximum of six months. Should the data be required for the fulfillment of existing legal, statutory or contractual retention periods (e.g. invoices), the data is stored for an extended period. However, this data is blocked and password-protected, and only accessible to a small number of authorized persons.

We only use your personal data for the purpose of responding to your requests. Without your express authorization, your data will not be shared with third parties. Where we are required to do so by law or by the ruling of a court, we will pass on information to the pertinent agencies.
