COLLECTION AND PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA

In general, you can visit the SWISS SOLAR webpages without us requiring any
personal data from you. We only receive information about which IP address
retrieved which page at which time. This information is analyzed for
statistical purposes. The individual visitor remains anonymous.

On some pages, you can enter personal data such as your name and address in
input fields. These data are only processed for correspondence with you and
for the purpose for which you provided the data to us. If you contact us via
a form, the information you provide will be transmitted in encrypted form.
In this way, misuse of the data by third parties is prevented.

ACCESS DATA/SERVER LOG FILES

SWISS SOLAR collects data on each access to the offering (so-called server
log files). Access data include the following:

Name of the retrieved webpage, file, date and time of retrieval, transmitted
data volume, notification of successful retrieval, browser type and version,
operating system of the user, referrer URL (last page visited), IP address,
and requesting provide.

SWISS SOLAR only uses log data for statistical analysis for the purpose of
operation, security, and optimization of the offering. However, SWISS SOLAR
reserves the right to examine log data retroactively if there is a justified
suspicion of unlawful use based on concrete grounds.

HANDLING OF PERSONAL DATA

“Personal data” means information that can be used to identify a person,
i.e., information that can be traced back to a specific person. Names,
e-mail addresses, and telephone numbers are all personal data. Data on
preferences, hobbies, memberships, or webpages viewed by a person are also
considered to be personal data.

Personal data are only collected, used, and passed on by SWISS SOLAR if this
is legally permitted or the user consents to collection of the data.

SSL ENCRYPTION

To protect the privacy of your data during transmission, we use encryption
methods corresponding to the current state of the art (e.g., SSL) via
HTTPS.

We collect personal data communicated to us by you on your own initiative,

INTEGRATION OF THIRD-PARTY SERVICES AND CONTENT

Third-party content, which may include, for example, YouTube videos, Google
Maps materials, Google fonts, or graphics from other websites may be
integrated into this online offering. This always requires that the
providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party
providers”) have knowledge of the IP address of the user because they could
not send the content to the respective user’s browser without the IP
address. The IP address is hence necessary for display of this content. We
strive to use only content whose respective providers use the IP address
solely for the delivery of the content. However, we have no influence over
whether or not the third-party providers, e.g., save the IP address for
statistical purposes. We will notify the users accordingly if we become
aware of this.

YouTube: We use YouTube’s “extended data protection mode” to embed videos. A
cookie that, according to YouTube, contains no personal information will
only be saved on your computer when you play the video. More information on
the collection and use of data can be found in the YouTube Privacy Policy at
www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

This website uses the Google Maps API for visually representing geographical
information. When Google Maps is used, Google also collects, processes, and
uses data on the use of the map features by users. More information on data
processing by Google can be found in Google’s Privacy Policy. You can also
change your personal data privacy settings there in the privacy center.

Google Fonts: To render our content correctly and graphically appealingly
across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google
fonts (www.google.com/webfonts/) on this website. Google fonts are
transferred to your browser’s cache so that they don’t have to be loaded
multiple times. If the browser does not support Google fonts or denies
access, the content is displayed in a standard font.

Calling of script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers
connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible for
operators of the corresponding libraries to collect data – although it is
not clear as to whether or not and, if so, for which purposes they would do
so.

The Privacy Policy of the library operator Google can be found at
www.google.com/policies/privacy.

COOKIES

Like many other websites, we use so-called cookies. Cookies are small text
files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. Through
them, we automatically receive certain data such as your IP address,
browser, and operating system from your computer and your internet
connection.

Cookies cannot be used to launch programs or spread viruses to a computer.
By means of the information contained in cookies, we can make navigation
easier for you and enable our webpages to be displayed correctly.

Under no circumstances will the data collected by us be passed on to third
parties or a link to personal data be established without your consent

USE OF GOOGLE ANALYTICS

Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, which are
text files saved on your computer to enable analysis of your use of the
website. The information on your use of this website generated by the cookie
is usually transferred to and saved on a Google server in the US. However,
within the Member States of the European Union or other contracting parties
to the European Economic Area, your IP address is first truncated by Google
due to the activation of IP anonymization on this website. The complete IP
address is only transmitted to and truncated on a Google server in the US in
exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google uses
this information to analyze your use of the website, to compile reports on
website activity, and to provide additional services associated with the
website use and internet use to the website operator. The IP address
transmitted from your browser using Google Analytics is not merged with
other data from Google.

You can prevent cookies from being saved by making the appropriate setting

IP address) for Google and the processing of this data by Google by
downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following
link: browser add-on for deactivation of Google Analytics.
In addition or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can prevent
tracking by Google Analytics on our pages by only allowing “functional
cookies”. This prevents Google Analytics from collecting data for this
website. You can change this setting at any time.
