We, SWISS KRONO AG, Willisauerstrasse 37, 6122 Menznau, Switzerland, are the controller for all personal data which you provide to us in the framework of your use of our website www.swisskrono.ch. If you visit other SWISS KRONO websites, the controller shall be the operator of the website specified in the legal notice of the respective website.

Categories of personal data collected by us

We collect and process in particular the following categories of personal data:

  • Contact information such as your full name, business address, business phone number, business mobile phone number, business fax number and business email address, the identification of your mobile telephone and the IP address of your computer, if you use our website.
  • Further business information which needs to be processed in a business or other contractual relationship with SWISS KRONO or which is provided by you voluntarily, such as orders submitted, purchases, services and other business transactions, feedback on products and other information that you provide to us within the framework of a business relationship or arises from this.
  • Information about your preferences and interests which we receive from the web tracking or analysis technologies specified in our Cookie Policy, in particular when using our website and content which we make available to you for download (e.g. when registering for the download of software, eBooks, white papers), or other online services which we offer to you. For example, we collect information about what content you download from our website and what content you have clicked on or looked at and in which way.
  • Information which we obtain from public sources, databases and from credit agencies.
  • If we are legally obliged to do so, we collect information for compliance purposes, for example about legal disputes or judicial procedures in which you or a person related to you are involved and information about interactions with you that may be relevant for anti-trust purposes.

For what purposes do we use your personal data

We will use your personal data exclusively for the following purposes (“Permitted purposes”):

  • to initiate, execute, control and administer your contractual relationship (or the contractual relationship of your organisation) with the SWISS KRONO Group, e.g. by conducting transactions and orders of products or services, processing payment transactions, performing accounting, book-keeping, billing and debt collection procedures, effecting shipments and deliveries, repairs and the provision of support services or other services that you have possibly commissioned or requested;
  • to maintain and protect the security of our products, services and websites or other systems, to prevent and identify security risks, cases of fraud or other criminal or malicious acts;
  • general compliance purposes, in particular to guarantee compliance with our statutory and regulatory obligations and requirements, such as compliance screenings or recording obligations (e.g. in the context of competition laws, export laws , trade sanctions and embargo laws or the prevention of economic crime or money laundering). This may include the following measures: comparing your contact or identification with relevant sanction lists and confirming your identity in the case a possible match, the recording of your cooperation with third parties, if this could be relevant for anti-trust purposes, reports to or audit by competent supervisory, law enforcement or other competent authorities;
  • information within an existing business relationship about similar or related products or services of SWISS KRONO, if this is permissible under applicable law;
  • to settle disputes, to execute our contractual agreements and to establish, exercise or defend legal claims, or
  • to ensure compliance with legal obligations, e.g. storage of sales documents for tax purposes or sending legally required notifications and other announcements.

If you have given us your express consent to do so, we can use your personal data also for the following purposes:

  • to communicate with you via channels that you have consented to in order to keep you up to date with the newest announcements, special offers and other information about products, technologies and services of SWISS KRONO (including marketing-related newsletters) as well as events and projects of SWISS KRONO;
  • to administer and execute customer questionnaires, marketing campaigns, market analyses, competitions or other promotional measures or events or
  • profiling and automatic processing: We collect information about your preferences based on your activities when using our website, products, content that is available for download (e.g. when registering for the download of software, eBooks, white papers), or other online services which we offer to you. Based on this information (e.g. what content has been downloaded and how long and how often these are clicked on or viewed) we create a user profile to make our communication and interaction with you more personal and improve quality (for example by means of newsletter tracking or website analytics). The background of our profiling analytics is to recognise subjects that are useful or of interest to you and to inform you of these in a customised way. The algorithms we use apply this logic and automatically provide you with content and information which is appropriate for you.

Please note: According to Article 21(2) EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data for marketing purposes, including the above-described profiling. In respect of this, please note the sub-section “Your rights” for a detailed explanation of your rights and how you can assert these.

 

We will then only communicate with you for advertising purposes (e.g. by email or telephone calls) if, where legally required, you have expressly consented to this in advance. You have the option to revoke your consent at any time if you do not wish to receive any further marketing information from us.

We will not use your personal data to make automated decisions that affect you or to create any profiles in any way other than as described above.

The legal bases for the processing of your personal data are defined in Article 6 GDPR. Depending on which of the above-mentioned Permitted Purposes we process your personal data for, the processing of your personal data is performed either to fulfil a contract or another business agreement with SWISS KRONO or to comply with our legal obligations or to safeguard the legitimate interests of SWISS KRONO or third parties, always under the proviso that your interests or basic rights and freedoms do not take precedence and preclude any processing. In addition the processing is performed, where applicable, on the basis of your express consent provided you have given this to us.

6 Analysis tools and advertising

6.1 Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the web analysis service, Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files stored on your computer and which allow an analysis of how you use the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is typically transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the USA.

Google Analytics cookies are stored based on Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of the user behaviour to optimise both its web offering and it advertising.

 

IP anonymisation

We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. Google uses this to shorten your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other signatories to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before sending it to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this site to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity and to provide other services to the website operator regarding web and internet use. The IP address communicated by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not associated with any other data held by Google.

Contract data processing

We have concluded an agreement with Google on contract data processing and implement in full the strict provisions of the German data protection authorities for the use of Google Analytics.

 

Demographic features in Google Analytics

This website uses the “demographic features” function of Google Analytics. Using this function, reports can be produced that contain statements on the age, gender and interests of the visitors to the site. This data originates from interest-related advertising by Google as well as visitor data of third-party providers. This data cannot be matched to specific people. You can disable this feature at any time via the display settings in your Google Account, or refuse to allow Google Analytics to collect your data at all, as outlined in the section “Objecting to having your data collected”.

 

6.2 etracker

Our website uses the analysis service etracker. The provider is etracker GmbH, Erste Brunnenstraße 1, 20459 Hamburg, Germany. A usage profile can be generated from the data under a pseudonym. Cookies may be deployed for this purpose. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the web page user's internet browser cache. The cookies enable it to recognise your browser when you revisit the site. The data collected by etracker technology will not be used to personally identify visitors of this website and will not be merged with personal data of the bearer of the pseudonym without the separately granted consent of the person concerned.

etracker cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them.

etracker cookies are stored based on Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the anonymised analysis of user behaviour to optimise both its web offering and it advertising.

You can object to the data collection and storage at any time with future effect. In order to object to the collection and storage of your visitor data in the future, you can obtain an opt-out cookie from etracker under the following link; this will mean that no visitor data from your browser will be collected and stored in the future:

https://www.etracker.com/de/datenschutz.html.

 

Agreement on contract data processing

We have concluded an agreement with etracker on contract data processing and implement in full the strict provisions of the German data protection authorities in our use of etracker.

 

6.3 Google AdSense  

This website uses Google AdSense, a service to integrate adverts provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). The provider is Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google AdSense uses so-called “cookies”, text files which are saved on your computer and allow your use of the website to be analysed. Google AdSense also uses so-called web beacons (invisible graphics). These web beacons enable information to be evaluated, such as, for example, visitor traffic on these pages.

The information generated by the cookie and web beacons about your use of this website (including your IP address) and delivery of advertising formats will be transferred to a Google server in the U.S.A and stored there. This information may be transferred by Google to contractual parters of Google. Google will not, however, merge your IP address with other data stored about you.

The storage of AdSense cookies is performed on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of the user behaviour to optimise both its web offering and it advertising.

You can prevent the installation of cookies via the corresponding setting in your browser software; however, we would like to point out to you that in this case you may not be able to completely utilise all functions of this website. By using this website you agree to Google processing the data collected about you in the manner described above and for the purpose described above.

 

6.4 Google Analytics Remarketing  

Our websites use the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing in connection with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. The provider is Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

This function enables the advertising target groups created using Google Analytics Remarketing to be linked with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. In this way, interest-related, personalised advertising messages which, depending on your previous usage and browsing behaviour on an end device (e.g. mobile phone) have been customised to you, can also be displayed on one of your other end devices (e.g. tablet or PC).

If you have issued corresponding consent to this, Google will to this end link your web and app browsing history to your Google account. In this way the same personalised advertising messages can be displayed on every end device on which you are logged on to your Google account.

To support this function Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated IDs of users who are temporarily linked to our Google-Analytics data in order to define and create target groups for the cross-device display of advertising.

You can object to the cross-device remarketing/targeting with permanent effect by deactivating personalised advertising in your Google account; to do this, follow this link:

https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.

The merging of the collected data in your Google account is performed exclusively on the basis of your consent, which you can provide to or withdraw from Google (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR). For data collection processes that are not merged in your Google account (e.g. because you do not have a Google account or you have objected to the merging, the collection of the data is based on Article 6(1)(f) GDPR). The legitimate interest arises from the fact that the website operator has an interest in the anonymised analysis of the website visitor for advertising purposes.

You can find further information and data protection provisions in Google’s privacy policy:

https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/.

 

6.5 Google AdWords and Google conversion tracking  

This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

Within Google AdWords we use so-called conversion tracking. If you click on adverts placed by Google, a cookie is placed on your computer for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files that the Internet browser stores on the user’s computer. These cookies lose their effectiveness after 30 days and cannot be used to personally identify the user. If the user visits certain pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google are able to recognise that you have clicked on the advert and have been forwarded to this page.

Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies therefore cannot be traced via the websites of AdWords customers. The information that is gathered with the help of the conversion cookie serves to produce conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. As a result, the customers learn the total number of users who have clicked on their advert and were forwarded to a site with a conversion tracking tag. They do not receive any information, however, by means of which they can be identified personally. Users who do not wish to participate in tracking can simply disable the Google Conversion Tracking cookie via their Internet browser under the user settings. They will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

“Conversion cookies” are stored on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of the user behaviour to optimise both its web offering and it advertising.

More information about Google AdWords and Google conversion tracking can be found in Google’s privacy policy:

https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the placing of cookies and allow cookies only in certain cases, to exclude the acceptance of cookies in specific cases or in general as well as to activate automatic deleting of cookies when you close your browser. This website’s functionality may be restricted if you deactivate cookies.

 

6.6 Google reCAPTCHA

We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereinafter “reCAPTCHA”) on our websites. The provider is Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

reCAPTCHA is used to check whether data is being entered into our website (e.g. on a contact form) by a person or by an automated program. For this, reCAPTCHA analyses the behaviour of the website visitor using different features. This analysis begins automatically once the website visitor accesses the website. reCAPTCHA uses various information for the analysis (e.g. IP address, length of the visitor’s stay on the website or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected in the analysis is forwarded to Google.

The reCAPTCHA analyses run entirely in the background. Website visitors are not informed that an analysis is taking place.

The data processing is performed on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting its website against abusive automated data spying and spam.

Further information on Google reCAPTCHA and Google’s privacy policy can be accessed via the following links:

https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/

and

https://www.google.com/recaptcha/intro/android.html.

 

6.7 Facebook Pixel

To tracks conversions, our website uses the visitor behaviour pixel from Facebook, Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”).

This enables the tracking of behaviour of website users after they are forwarded to the website of the provider by clicking on a Facebook advert. In this way the effectiveness of the Facebook adverts is evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and future advertising measures optimised.

The data collected is anonymous for us as the provider of this website; we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of the users. The data will, however, be stored and processed by Facebook, meaning that a linking with the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can according to the Facebook Data Policy use the data for its own advertising purposes. In this way, Facebook can enable the display of adverts on Facebook pages and outside of Facebook. We as the website operator have no influence of this use of the data.

In Facebook’s Privacy Policy you can find further information on the protection of your privacy:

https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

You can also deactivate the remarketing function “Custom Audiences” in the settings for adverts area at:

https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen

For this you must also be logged on to Facebook.

If you do not have a Facebook account you can deactivate usage-based advertising by Facebook on the website of the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance:
