Pur­pose and ba­sis for data pro­cess­ing

The data pro­cess­ing is car­ried out to analyse the in­ter­net traf­fic of our web­site and to im­prove the func­tion­al­ity of our web­site. The pro­cess­ing of your data is based on your con­sent or is nec­es­sary for the pur­poses of the le­git­i­mate in­ter­ests of Biotta.

Kinds of per­sonal data and where it comes from

We process per­sonal data aris­ing from your use of our web­site or which you pro­vide to us via our web­site.

Re­cip­i­ents of per­sonal data

Your data will not be trans­ferred to any third party. How­ever, we work with IT providers, who are re­spon­si­ble for back­ing up all data.

Col­lec­tion of per­sonal data dur­ing in­for­ma­tional use of our web­site

We do not col­lect any per­sonal data if you use this web­site for purely in­for­ma­tional pur­poses – ex­cept data that your browser trans­mits to en­able you to visit the web­site.

This in­cludes:

  • IP address

  • Date and time of request

  • Time difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)

  • Content of the request (specific page)

  • Access status/HTTP status code

  • Volume of data transmitted in each case

  • Operating system and its interface

  • Language and version of the browser software


Use of cook­ies for func­tional pur­poses

(1) Ad­di­tion­ally, cook­ies are stored on your com­puter when you use the web­site. Cook­ies are small text files that are al­lo­cated to the browser you are us­ing and saved on your hard drive, by way of which cer­tain in­for­ma­tion is passed on to the provider that set the cookie (in this case, us). Their pur­pose is to make the on­line ser­vice more user-friendly and ef­fec­tive.

(2) This web­site uses tran­sient cook­ies (tem­po­rary use un­til you close your browser) and per­sis­tent cook­ies (which con­tinue af­ter your browser is closed):

Tran­sient cook­ies are deleted au­to­mat­i­cally when you close the browser. These in­clude ses­sion cook­ies in par­tic­u­lar. They store a ses­sion ID with which dif­fer­ent re­quests by your browser can be as­signed to a com­mon ses­sion. These al­low for your com­puter to be rec­og­nized when you re­turn to the web­site. The ses­sion cook­ies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.

Per­sis­tent cook­ies are au­to­mat­i­cally deleted af­ter a pre­de­ter­mined amount of time that can vary de­pend­ing on the cookie. You can delete cook­ies at any time in your browser’s se­cu­rity set­tings.

(3) You can con­fig­ure your browser set­tings ac­cord­ing to your pref­er­ences, for ex­am­ple to block third-party cook­ies or all cook­ies. How­ever, please note that you may then not be able to use all of the func­tions of this web­site.

Use of Google An­a­lyt­ics

(1) This web­site uses Google An­a­lyt­ics, a web analy­sis ser­vice of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google An­a­lyt­ics uses “cook­ies,” text files that are stored on your com­puter and per­mit an analy­sis of your use of the web­site. The in­for­ma­tion gen­er­ated by the cookie re­gard­ing your use of the web­site is gen­er­ally trans­mit­ted to a Google server in the U.S. and stored there. The IP ad­dress trans­mit­ted by your browser within the frame­work of Google An­a­lyt­ics is not matched with any other data from Google. More­over, we have ex­tended Google An­a­lyt­ics on this web­site us­ing the “anonymizeIP” code. This guar­an­tees the mask­ing of your IP ad­dress, al­low­ing for all data to be col­lected anony­mously. The full IP ad­dress is only sent to a Google server in the U.S., and ab­bre­vi­ated there, in ex­cep­tional cases.

(2) Google uses this in­for­ma­tion on our be­half to analyse your use of the web­site, to com­pile re­ports on the web­site ac­tiv­i­ties and to pro­vide us with other ser­vices re­lated to web­site us­age and in­ter­net us­age. You can pre­vent the stor­age of cook­ies through the cor­re­spond­ing set­ting in your browser soft­ware; how­ever, please note that if you do so, you may not be able to use all of the func­tions of this web­site to their full ex­tent.

(3) You can ad­di­tion­ally pre­vent Google’s col­lec­tion of the in­for­ma­tion gen­er­ated by the cookie and re­lated to your use of the web­site (in­clud­ing your IP ad­dress) and Google’s pro­cess­ing of this data by down­load­ing and in­stalling the browser plug-in avail­able here. As an al­ter­na­tive to the browser add-on, es­pe­cially for browsers on mo­bile de­vices, you can also pre­vent data col­lec­tion through Google An­a­lyt­ics by click­ing on this link. This sets an opt-out cookie that will pre­vent fu­ture col­lec­tion of your data dur­ing vis­its to this web­site. The opt-out cookie only ap­plies to this browser and only for our web­site and will be stored on your de­vice. If you delete the cook­ies in this browser, you will have to set the opt-out cookie again

(4) We use Google An­a­lyt­ics in­clud­ing the func­tions of Uni­ver­sal An­a­lyt­ics. Uni­ver­sal An­a­lyt­ics al­lows us to analyse the ac­tiv­i­ties on our pages across de­vices (e.g. for ac­cess from a lap­top and later from a tablet). This is made pos­si­ble by as­sign­ing a pseu­do­nym user ID to a user. Such an as­sign­ment oc­curs, for ex­am­ple, when you reg­is­ter for a cus­tomer ac­count or log in with your cus­tomer ac­count. How­ever, no per­sonal data is for­warded to Google. Even if ad­di­tional fea­tures are added to Google An­a­lyt­ics with Uni­ver­sal An­a­lyt­ics, this does not in­volve a re­stric­tion on mea­sures de­signed to pro­tect your pri­vacy such as IP mask­ing or the browser add-on.

Use of Face­book Pixel

This web­site uses the so-called "Face­book Pixel" and the Con­ver­sions API of the so­cial net­work "Face­book" for the fol­low­ing pur­poses:

  • Facebook (website) Custom Audiences

We use the Face­book pixel and the Con­ver­sions API for re­mar­ket­ing pur­poses to be able to con­tact you again within 180 days. This al­lows us to dis­play in­ter­est-based ad­ver­tise­ments ("Face­book Ads") to users of the web­site when they visit the so­cial net­work "Face­book" or other web­sites also us­ing this tool. In this way, we pur­sue the in­ter­est in dis­play­ing ad­ver­tise­ments that are of in­ter­est to you in or­der to make our web­site or of­fers more in­ter­est­ing for you. 

  • Facebook conversion

We also use the Face­book Pixel and the Con­ver­sions API to en­sure that our Face­book Ads match the po­ten­tial in­ter­est of users and are not an­noy­ing. With the help of the Face­book Pixel, we can track the ef­fec­tive­ness of Face­book ads for sta­tis­ti­cal and mar­ket re­search pur­poses by see­ing whether users were redi­rected to our web­site af­ter click­ing on a Face­book ad (so-called "con­ver­sion").

Due to the mar­ket­ing tools used, (Face­book Pixel and Con­ver­sions API), your browser au­to­mat­i­cally es­tab­lishes a di­rect con­nec­tion with the Face­book server as soon as you have agreed to the use of cook­ies re­quir­ing your con­sent. Through the in­te­gra­tion of the Face­book pixel and the us­age of the Con­ver­sions API, Face­book re­ceives the in­for­ma­tion that you have called up the cor­re­spond­ing web­site of our in­ter­net pres­ence or clicked on an ad­ver­tise­ment from us. If you are reg­is­tered with a Face­book ser­vice, Face­book can as­sign the visit to your ac­count.

The pro­cess­ing of this data by Face­book takes place within the frame­work of Face­book's data pol­icy. Spe­cial in­for­ma­tion and de­tails about the Face­book pixel, the Con­ver­sions API and its func­tion­al­ity can also be found in the Face­book help area.

Mailchimp

We use the ser­vice provider Mailchimp from In­tuit Inc. in the USA to send our newslet­ter by e-mail (Mailchimp pri­vacy pol­icy). If you reg­is­ter for our newslet­ter, you agree that we may send you the elec­tronic newslet­ter, eval­u­ate your per­sonal ac­cess and click be­hav­iour for sta­tis­tics, and con­tact you in in­di­vid­ual cases. In ad­di­tion, you ex­pressly agree that we may trans­mit your e-mail ad­dress and ti­tle to Mailchimp in the USA. Please note that the USA does not of­fer the same level of data pro­tec­tion as Switzer­land. In ad­di­tion, ac­cess to your data by US au­thor­i­ties, over which we have no con­trol, can­not be ruled out.

Biotta Fo­rum

Biotta AG pro­vides nat­ural per­sons with a com­mu­nity plat­form on the In­ter­net so that per­sons can ex­change in­for­ma­tion about the Biotta Well­ness Week. In ad­di­tion, in­di­vid­u­als can reg­is­ter for a 7-day newslet­ter, print out vouch­ers or view fur­ther in­for­ma­tion about the Well­ness Week.

Ba­si­cally, all per­sonal data is col­lected that arises in the con­text of the Biotta Well­ness Week Com­mu­nity on biotta.ch. This in­cludes in par­tic­u­lar:

  • data entered by users via online forms, including personal data (name, home address, telephone number, e-mail address, date of birth, gender, etc.);

  • automatically transmitted or accrued usage data (e.g. date and time of use, previous and accessed page, IP address, data on the browser used, device identifier, current location, insofar as this information is released, etc.) as well as interaction data.

This data can be linked to each other, even across mul­ti­ple vis­its and con­tacts, if a user or pro­file is rec­og­nized, for ex­am­ple, on the ba­sis of a user name, an e-mail ad­dress, a de­vice iden­ti­fier or "cook­ies" stored in the browser.

Du­ra­tion of stor­age

Un­less oth­er­wise stated, we store us­age data and other per­sonal data as long as we think nec­es­sary or ap­pro­pri­ate to com­ply with ap­plic­a­ble laws or oth­er­wise for the pur­poses for which they are processed. We will delete your data as soon as it is no longer needed and in any case af­ter the ex­piry of any legally pre­scribed max­i­mum re­ten­tion pe­riod. 

Rights of the data sub­ject

If the le­gal re­quire­ments are met, you have the fol­low­ing rights:

  • Right to access and information

  • Right to rectification if there are mistakes

  • Right to delete your data

  • Right to restrict the processing of your data

In ad­di­tion, you have the right to ob­ject at any time to the pro­cess­ing of your per­sonal data, which is based on your con­sent or our le­git­i­mate in­ter­ests.

Right to com­plain to the su­per­vi­sory au­thor­ity

If you have a com­plaint about how we are deal­ing with your per­sonal data, please con­tact us via the email ad­dress above.

Data se­cu­rity

We main­tain up-to-date tech­ni­cal mea­sures to en­sure data se­cu­rity, in par­tic­u­lar to pro­tect your per­sonal data from risks dur­ing data trans­mis­sion and from be­ing ac­cessed by third par­ties. These are ad­justed ac­cord­ing to the cur­rent state of tech­nol­ogy.

Changes to the pri­vacy pol­icy

We re­serve the right to change this pri­vacy pol­icy at any time. You will find the date of the most re­cent change at the end of the pri­vacy pol­icy.
