Our medical practice attaches great importance to privacy. Due to its legal obligations (medical confidentiality according to Art. 321 StGB, Data Protection Act and other federal and cantonal decrees), a high level of legal protection already exists. The collection and processing of your personal data are carried out in compliance with the applicable data protection laws and requirements.
In principle, our medical practice offers its services only in Switzerland and is directed only to persons residing in Switzerland.
Collection of general data and information
With each access to the website by a data subject or an automated system, a series of general data and information is collected. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The following data may be collected: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an access to the website, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our IT infrastructure.
This data and information is needed to (1) correctly display the content of our website, (2) optimize the content of our website, (3) ensure the long-term functionality of our IT infrastructure and the technology of our website, and (4) provide the necessary information to law enforcement authorities in the event of a cyber attack. Furthermore, our medical practice can evaluate this data and information on the one hand statistically and on the other hand with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of its IT infrastructure. The data and information collected in this way are processed only for the purposes just mentioned and are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.

This website may contain links to third-party websites. Our medical practice has no control over these websites, their content, offerings or availability, or the privacy statements and policies that apply there. It therefore disclaims all liability.
Cookies and other service offerings
Such information about the use of this website (including your IP address) may, for example, in the case of Google Analytics, be transmitted to and stored by servers abroad. Google Analytics uses this information, for example, to compile reports on visitors’ website activity. Google may also transfer this data to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the data on Google’s behalf. Google, as well as other cookie providers, have their own privacy statements and policies. The use and processing of data stored via cookies by third-party companies such as Google are outside the scope of responsibility of the medical practice. It therefore disclaims any liability.
Our medical practice may use further service offers from third-party providers to integrate their content and services, such as videos or articles, into the website. Such integration always requires that these third-party service providers can collect and process the IP address and other information of visitors to this website.
Social Media / Social Networks
Buttons (“social media plugins”) may be placed on this website that establish contact with the servers of social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.). By clicking on one of these buttons, you consent to certain data such as IP address, website visit, etc. being transmitted to the respective operator of the social network. This data transmission takes place without any action on the part of the medical practice. The privacy statements and policies of the respective social network apply.
The website of our medical practice contains due to legal requirements (“imprint obligation”) certain information that allows a quick electronic contact as well as direct communication, which also includes a general e-mail address. If you contact us via the communication options offered on our website, your contact details and content will only be used to process and respond to your inquiry.
Please note: Access to information and services on this website is via the Internet and therefore an open network accessible to everyone. The transmission of your data via this website or via means of communication such as e-mail, SMS or WhatsApp is considered fundamentally insecure. Our medical practice therefore disclaims any liability.
You have various rights regarding your data under the Data Protection Act. In particular, you have the right to information, correction and deletion (provided that the data no longer needs to be retained for legal reasons). The exercise of such rights usually requires that you clearly prove your identity (e.g. by means of a copy of your ID card, where your identity is otherwise not clear or cannot be verified). To assert your rights, please contact the medical practice. We are available to provide you with further information in this regard.
