in accordance with the Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection (FADP) and applicable foreign data protection legislation such as the General Data Protection Regulation (DCPR) of the European Union (EU).
The EU acknowledges that Swiss data protection law guarantees adequate data protection.
The definition of personal data includes all information that is used to identify you in person and can be traced back to you, such as your name, your email address and telephone number. The website operator collects, uses and transfers your personal data only if this is permitted by law or you consent to the data collection.
Access to our website is provided by means of transport encryption (SSL). An SSL certificate is a code on the web server that secures online communication. When a web browser establishes a connection to a secure website, the SSL certificate enables a secure connection.
Bear in mind that any online data transfer may be subject to security vulnerabilities. Full protection against third-party access is not feasible.
What personal data is collected when you access the website (“access data”)?
The website operator or site provider collects data concerning access to https://www.hochrheinterminal.ch/ and stores it in the form of “server logs”. The following types of access data are recorded:
- Website visited
- Time of access
- Volume of data transmitted in bytes
- Source/link from which you reached the site
- Browser used
- Operating system used
- IP address used
Purpose of access data collection
This data is collected and processed to allow the use of the website (establishment of a connection), to guarantee system security and stability, to optimise the online service and for internal statistical purposes. The IP address is used in particular to identify your country of residence and apply settings (e.g. language) accordingly. The IP address is also collected to allow an appropriate response to attacks on our network infrastructure. In this case, the website operator reserves the right to review the server logs retrospectively if there is specific evidence of unlawful use.
