General information

Our privacy policy is intended to explain how we handle personal data. The responsible handling of data is an important factor in the use of this website. We are constantly making adjustments to ensure that personal data is protected in the best possible way.

In cooperation with our hosting providers, we endeavour to protect the databases as well as possible against unauthorised access, loss, misuse or falsification.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) may be subject to security vulnerabilities. Complete protection of 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 the following description. This website can generally be visited without registration. Data such as pages called up or the name of the file called up, date and time may be 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 on a voluntary basis as far as possible. No data will be passed on to third parties without your consent.

 

Purpose of this website

Technologiepark Basel AG operates this website to provide information about the company and to enable you to contact the company. We receive personal information when you contact us via the contact form. We process your data to the best of our knowledge and belief and only in accordance with this privacy policy and the applicable Swiss data protection law.

 

Use of social media

If you visit the social media channels linked on our website, you will be redirected to the respective platforms. The providers of these platforms will then see that you have come from our website. The social media providers use this data for their own purposes. We can only inform you that this happens, but we know nothing about how the social media providers handle this data.

The use of pixels from social media providers is possible depending on the situation. The same data is collected as when processing the server log files and the collection cannot be prevented.

 

Processing of personal data

Personal data is any information relating 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, procurement, deletion, storage, modification, destruction and use of personal data.

We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law. In addition, we process personal data in accordance with the following legal bases in connection with Art. 6 para. 1 GDPR, insofar as the EU GDPR is applicable:

lit. a) Processing of personal data with the consent of the data subject.

lit. b) Processing of personal data for the fulfilment of a contract with the data subject and for the implementation of corresponding pre-contractual measures.

lit. c) Processing of personal data for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which we are subject under any applicable EU law or under any applicable law of a country in which the GDPR is applicable in whole or in part.

lit. d) Processing of personal data to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person.

lit. f) Processing of personal data in order to protect the legitimate interests of us or third parties, except where such interests are overridden by the fundamental freedoms and rights and interests of the data subject. Legitimate interests are, in particular, 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 required for the respective purpose or purposes. In the case of longer-term retention obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we restrict processing accordingly.

 

Privacy policy for SSL encryption

This website uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as the enquiries you send to us as the site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

 

Privacy policy for server log files

The provider of this website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server enquiry

This data is not directly linked to personal data. This data is not merged with other data sources.

 

Third party services

Are you a Google customer?

If you are already a user of Google services and have an account with which you are logged in, Google can collect and allocate your behaviour on the Internet and on these websites. This happens in a direct exchange between the registered user and Google, without any influence or knowledge on our part. If you do not wish this to happen, we recommend that you log out of your account before using this website.

Use of Google Maps

We use an integration of Google Maps to display our location. To enable us to use this function (e.g. location information via Google Maps), your IP address is stored and generally transferred to a Google server in the USA. We cannot influence this use of data. For more information about the exact use, please refer to Google's privacy policy at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

Use of YouTube

This website uses plugins from the YouTube site operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. The YouTube server is informed which of our pages you have visited.

If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

Further information on the handling of user data can be found in YouTube's privacy policy at Privacy Policy - Privacy Policy & Terms of Use – Google

 

Privacy policy for contact form
