General guidelines regarding data protection

Thank you for visiting our website. We are pleased with your interest in our products and services. The Derungs company takes protection of your personal data very seriously and would like to provide you below with an overview of how this protection is secured.


It is possible for you to visit our website without showing personal data and without identifying yourself to us.

However, if you want to make contact with us — especially if you want to take advantage of our services — it may be necessary for us to reference, request, store, process and use information on your identity (personal data such as name, e-mail address, postal address, and telephone number).

We advise you that you are not obligated to reveal your personal data to us. The answer to such questions is always voluntary.

When handling your personal data, we always observe the applicable data protection regulations, especially the requirements of the Swiss federal law on data protection (DSG).


Optimizing the website

We are always trying to make our website a little better for you. For this we use various web analysis tools that give us answers to specific questions, such as: Which pages have you visited? Which links did you click on?

For users from the European Union: The legal basis for processing this data is Article 6, paragraph 1, letter f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our legitimate interest comes from the following purposes for data collection: ensuring trouble-free connection, ensuring comfortable use of our website/application, and evaluation of system security and stability.


Collection, processing and use of non-personal data

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses what are called “cookies”, text files that are stored to your computer to allow analysis of your use of the website. The information the cookie creates about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the United States and stored there. If IP anonymization is activated on this website, Google will first abbreviate your IP address, but only in the member states of the European Union or in other Contracting States to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. In exceptional cases, the entire IP address will be transferred by Google to the United States and abbreviated there. Under contract from the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, create reports on website activities and to provide the website operator with other services related to website usage and Internet use. The IP address of your browser transferred by Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data. You can prevent storage of cookies by using an appropriate setting in your browser software. We advise you that in this case you may not be able to fully use all functions of this website. Moreover, you can prevent data captured by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being sent to Google and processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de


You can prevent collection by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set that prevents future collection of your data when you visit this website:



We advise you that on this website, Google Analytics is extended with the code “anonymizeIp” to ensure anonymized collection of IP addresses (called IP masking).


LinkedIn

Our website also uses plugins from LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter “LinkedIn”). You can recognize these plugins by the LinkedIn logo.
When you visit our websites, a direct connection is created between your browser and the LinkedIn server. From this, LinkedIn detects that you have visited our site with your IP address.
Derungs also uses a “Like” button for LinkedIn. If you click on this button, you will be requested to log onto LinkedIn. Only in this case is a cookie placed on your computer. Are you already logged into LinkedIn and click on the button? Then this information will be transferred to your profile. Then other users — according to your settings — see that you like our site. If you don’t click on the button or are not logged in, no cookie will be placed on your computer.

If you visit a page with a “Like” button, the abbreviated IP address will be transferred. The IP address is then anonymized, so that no inference can be made regarding your computer or you as a user.
Information on data collection (purpose, volume, further processing, use) by LinkedIn and your related rights and settings options to protect your privacy can be found in the data protection notes at https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy?trk=uno-reg-guest-home-privacy-policy

Our web pages may also use plugins from the social network xing.com (hereinafter “Xing”). It is operated by XING AG, Gänsemarkt 43, 20354 Hamburg, Germany.
If you call up a Derungs web page that contains such a plugin, your browser creates a direct connection to the Xing server. Xing transfers the plugin’s content directly to your browser and integrates it into its website. By integrating the plugin, Xing determines that you have called up the corresponding Derungs web page. If you are logged into Xing at the same time, Xing can associate the visit directly to your Xing account.

YouTube

As soon as you visit a Derungs website with a YouTube plugin, your browser connects to the YouTube servers. This tells YouTube which of our websites you have visited. If you are logged into YouTube at the same time, YouTube can associate your browsing behavior with your personal YouTube profile. This association does not occur if you have previously logged out of YouTube.
Derungs also uses a “Like” button for YouTube. If you click on this button, you will be requested to log onto YouTube. Only in this case is a cookie placed on your computer.
