HOROPEDIA Foundation is responsible for the collection, processing and use of your personal data and must ensure compliance with Swiss law and possibly applicable European law.
In cooperation with our hosting providers, we endeavour to protect the databases as much as possible from unauthorised access, losses, misuse or falsification. We would like to remind you that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can be subject to security vulnerabilities. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
By using this website, you consent to the collection, processing and use of data in accordance with this policy. This website can be visited without registration. Data such as pages accessed or names of files accessed, date and time are stored on the server for statistical purposes without this data being directly related to your person. Personal data, in particular name, address or e-mail address are collected to the extent possible on a voluntary basis. The data will not be made available to third parties without your consent.
1. SCOPE OF APPLICATION
Personal data is all information that refers to an identified or identifiable person. A data subject is a person about whom personal data is processed. Processing includes any handling of personal data, regardless of the means and procedures used, in particular the storage, disclosure, retrieval, deletion, recording, alteration, destruction and use of personal data.
We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law. Insofar and to the extent that the European General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) is applicable, we further process personal data in accordance with the following legal provisions in connection with Art. 6 para. 1 EU-GDPR:
Point a) processing of personal data with the consent of the data subject.
Point b) Processing of personal data for the performance of a contract with the data subject and for the implementation of corresponding pre-contractual measures.
Point c) Processing of personal data to discharge a legal obligation to which we are subject under any applicable EU law or under any applicable law of a country in which the EU-GDPR is applicable in whole or in part.
Point d) The processing of personal data for the purpose of protecting the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person.
Point f) Processing of personal data to protect the legitimate interests of us or third parties, unless the fundamental freedoms and rights and interests of the data subject prevail. In particular, legitimate interests include our business interest in being able to provide our website, information security, the enforcement of our own legal claims and compliance with Swiss law.
We process personal data for the duration necessary for the respective purpose or purposes. In the case of longer-term storage obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we limit the processing accordingly.

2.6 Analytics Tools
Our website may use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your web browser, to help the website analyze how users use the site (see above Cookies). The information generated by the cookie (browser type/version, operating system used, referrer URL / previously visited website, IP address, time of server request) about your use of this website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the U.S. and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on our website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data.
