Privacy statement

We take the protection of your personal data and its confidential treatment very seriously. With this data protection declaration, we would therefore like to give you an overview of when we collect which data from you in connection with your visit to our website and how we use this data. Any use of data always takes place in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations.

Data collection

What data does our company receive from you? 

Every visit to our website leads to an automatic collection of general data and information by our IT systems. This includes, among other things, the IP address, the date and the exact time of access or the pages which are accessed. This data does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person at any time and we only use this data for statistical evaluation of our website and for optimisation and possible redesign of our website.

In principle, it is possible to use our website without entering personal data. We do not use contact forms or similar.

Personal data are only collected if they are directly communicated to us by the visitor. This only happens if you send us an email to info@sitex.ch or another email address of our company. 

Use and transfer of data

What do we use your data for?

We collect and process all collected data in order to be able to offer a stable, efficient, optimised and, in particular, extremely secure Internet presence with relevant content in order to develop it further to meet the needs of our users. Any registration or correspondence with the purpose of delivering relevant information about the development of our company will result in the contact details being stored and used for future contact. The personal data provided to us will be stored and used by us exclusively for these purposes and at no time will it be passed on to persons or companies outside our holding structure.

Do we pass on your data to third parties?

Your data will only be passed on to our group companies as well as

  • Our service providers for the provision, administration, design and further development of our website;
  • if there is a legal obligation for the transfer; or
  • if the disclosure is necessary to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, provided that you have no overriding, legitimate interest in not disclosing your data.

The recipients may be domestic or in any country in the world. Therefore, you must particularly expect your data to be transferred to countries in Europe and the USA, where the service providers we use are located (in particular Google LLC, etc.).

When transferring your data to a country without adequate legal data protection, we ensure an adequate level of protection in accordance with the legal requirements or rely on the statutory exceptions (in particular the consent of the person concerned, exercise or enforcement of legal claims, predominant public interests, etc.).
However, we will neither sell your data nor make it available to third parties for purposes other than those listed above.

Web Analytics Services

We use web analytics services on our website to continually improve our content. Our website uses web analytics services and tracking technologies for this purpose.

For our website, our company uses the following technologies:

Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google LLC, Mountain View (CA), USA ("Google"). The cookies used by Google Analytics are stored on your computer or mobile device and enable an analysis of the use of our website.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website, such as browser type/version, operating system used, website from which the visit was made (referrer URL), IP address of the accessing computer and time of the server query, is transmitted to a Google server (in particular in the USA) and stored there. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended to include IP anonymisation in order to guarantee anonymous recording of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). By activating IP anonymisation on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google in advance within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. It is therefore not possible to identify your devices. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. Further information on the terms of use for Google Analytics and data protection can be found at: https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or https://policies.google.com.
Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of our website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us, as website operators, with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The recipient of the collected data is Google.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en; these so-called opt-out cookies prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data in the future when you visit our website.

Hyperlinks

Our website may display hyperlinks that are not operated or monitored by our company. Our company is not responsible for their content and handling of your personal data. It is therefore recommended that you read the privacy statement applicable on the other side. 

In principle, links are clearly displayed as such. Their use requires a separate click. The only exception is the following service: 

Google Maps

In order to present the locations of our properties and projects graphically and user-friendly, Google Maps from Google LLC, Mountain View (CA), USA ("Google") is integrated on our website.

Already when you call up the subpages in which a Google Maps map is integrated, information about your use of our website (such as your IP address) is transferred to Google's servers in the USA and stored there. This takes place regardless of whether Google provides a user account that you are logged on to or whether there is no user account. If you are logged in at Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not want your profile to be associated with Google, you will need to log out of your Google Account. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as user profiles and evaluates them for the purpose of advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website. You have the right to object to the creation of such user profiles, and you must contact Google to exercise this right.

If you do not agree with the future transmission of your data to Google within the scope of the use of Google Maps, there is also the possibility of completely deactivating the Google Maps web service by switching off the JavaScript application in your browser. Google Maps and thus also the map display on our website cannot then be used.

For detailed information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by Google, please refer to the Google Maps Terms of Use and Google's Privacy Policy. There you will also find further information on your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy: https://www.google.com/intl/de_US/help/terms_maps.html or https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en&gl=en.

Integration of services and contents of third parties

Our website can integrate content and services from third parties in order to present our projects to our visitors in an optimized way. This integration may result in the data of visitors to our website, such as the IP address, being automatically transferred to the respective third party provider, where it may be stored or otherwise processed. Without this information, the content and services of these third parties cannot be sent to the browser of your computer or mobile device. Below we provide you with an overview of the third-party providers we use and their content and services. We always refer you to the data protection declaration of the respective third party provider, where you can find out about the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by the third party provider.

Vimeo

On our website we integrate the video portal Vimeo of Vimeo Inc., New York (NY), USA ("Vimeo"). We use this service to display videos to you. When you access a subpage that includes a Vimeo component, a connection is established to the Vimeo server and the browser on your computer or mobile device automatically prompts you to view the videos for you. If you are logged in to Vimeo at the same time, this information can be assigned to your personal profile by Vimeo. If you do not wish to be associated with your profile, you must log out of your Vimeo user account. In any case, Vimeo is responsible for processing your data in accordance with its privacy policy, which you can find at https://vimeo.com/privacy We do not receive any information about you from Vimeo.

Data Security

Our company takes all necessary security measures to protect the personal data collected from users of our website. All data collected is stored on secure servers. Our company and our IT partners have appropriate technical and organisational security measures in place to protect against manipulation, loss and destruction. In addition, the data of visitors to our website is protected against access, alteration or dissemination by unauthorised individuals. We use the standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer) transmission, which is supported by most browsers. We are aware that the transmission of information via the Internet can always involve a certain security risk. It is therefore important to us that we continually optimise our security standards and measures, improve them if necessary and adapt them to market developments.
