- Data Processing when utilizing AIPMO Offers/ Services
Principle: Personal Data is always collected, if actively provided to AIPMO in the context of the services offered on this website. The processing of such data generally takes place in direct connection with the conclusion or the execution of a contract or the fulfilment of pre-contractual or contractual obligations.
Data: The information required for this purpose is: (i) first and last name, (ii) address, (iii) telephone number, (iv) email address.
Purpose: The collection and use of this data serves for the correct formation, content and performance of the contractual relationship. This also includes the transmission of personal data to the extent necessary for the performance of the contract to the respective partners and service providers, e.g., regardless of whether such companies are located in Switzerland or abroad.
Place and duration: Personal data is stored in Switzerland or within the European Union. AIPMO stores and processes the data only as far as and for as long as the particular purpose of the processing is required, e.g., to process requests and make bookings. After expiry of the time period prescribed in applicable tax and commercial regulations, this data will be deleted, unless AIPMO has received the express consent for further use.
Other uses: AIPMO may also use the personal data collected for the purposes of the contract for purposes other than our original purposes, as long as there is a connection between the purposes of use and the original data collection (for example, customer loyalty and marketing for our own products).
- Disclosure of Data to Third Parties
AIPMO discloses personal information to third parties who are responsible for technical maintenance or who assist AIPMO in conducting business transactions only to the extent necessary to perform the contract.
AIPMO contractually binds such data processors to comply with AIPMO’s data protection regulations, confidentiality and to provide proof the given technical and organizational data security measures. However, AIPMO and its agent third parties may be required by law, court order, or governmental order to share personal information with government agencies and regulatory bodies.
In addition, AIPMO will only disclose personal data to third parties if express consent has been given or to the extent that may be required by law or, if the disclosure of information is required to enforce legal claims by third parties and AIPMO has no reason to believe that you may have an overriding interest in not sharing said information.
- Server Log Files
When accessing AIPMO’s website, the following user data is transmitted through the Internet browser and stored in log files, the so-called server log files: IP address of the user, date and time of access, name of the retrieved website or file, referrer URL, the transmitted amount of data, user’s operating system and information about the type and version of the browser used. The IP addresses are either deleted or anonymized after the termination of access. The user data form the basis for statistical, anonymous evaluations in order to improve the offer on AIPMO’s website and to make it more user-friendly. There will not be a combination of this data with data from other sources.
Cookies are small files that are stored on the user’s device when visiting a website. Cookies allow the website to uniquely identify the browser and remember certain inputs and preferences over a period of time (e.g. preferred language, most visited pages). Cookies give AIPMO information about the way the website is used in order to improve the website, for anonymous statistical evaluation, for market research purposes and to improve AIPMO’s offers. However, AIPMO will only be able to recognize pseudonymized information such as general usage patterns on the website and not the usage behaviour of individuals. Cookie information is not intended to personally identify any user. There is no correlation of personal data to identification numbers.
The users’ IP addresses will be collected and processed with your consent, which is inferred from the users’ behavior when using AIPMO’s website. This Policy provides the basis for appropriate information for voluntary consent. Further, the processing of the IP address of website visitors protects AIPMO’s legitimate interest in offering services that meet user needs. In any case, the restriction of the legitimate interests of website visitors is outweighed because IP addresses are pseudonymized and edited only in this form.
- Google Analytics
IP Anonymization: AIPMO uses the function of Google Analytics “anonymizeIP”. Users’ IP addresses will be collected by Google at their behest only in an abbreviated form and thus anonymized, so that no assignment and no conclusions about their identities are possible (IP masking). If IP anonymization is activated on this website, users’ IP addresses will be shortened by Google for usage within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to the transmission to Google’s US server. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there.
Purpose: Google will use this information on AIPMO’s behalf to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide AIPMO with other services related to website activity and internet usage. The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. This information may also be transferred to third parties if required by law or as far as third parties process this data on behalf of Google.
Job Data Processing: AIPMO has a contract with Google and AIPMO is fully implementing the data protection requirements when using Google Analytics.
Objection: Users can prevent the storage of cookies by a corresponding setting of their browser software. However, AIPMO wishes to point out that in this case users may not be able to use all functions of this website in full. In addition, users may prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by cookies and related to their use of the website (including IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by using the link available at the following link “Download” and installing the respective browser plugin to disable Google Analytics: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

- Google AdSense
The information generated by cookies and web beacons on the use of this website (including IP address) and delivery of advertising formats are transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the USA. This information may be shared by Google with Google affiliates. However, Google will not merge users’ IP addresses with other data users have stored.
Users can prevent the installation of cookies by setting the browser software accordingly. However, users should be aware that in this case they may not be able to fully use all the features of this website. By using this website, users consent to the processing of data about them by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.
- Links and Social Media Plug-ins
If users access external links to other websites offered through AIPMO’s website, this Policy does not extend to these links. AIPMO has no influence on other providers’ compliance with privacy and security regulations. Users are required to read about the privacy statements on the websites of the other providers on the respective websites.
AIPMO uses plug-ins for social networks, e.g., Facebook, Google+, Twitter and Xing on its website. Responsibility for the operational compliance with data protection is to be guaranteed by the networks’ respective providers. The integration of these plug-ins takes place in such a way that the data protection of the users is guaranteed as comprehensively as possible.
On AIPMO’s website plug-ins of the social network Facebook are integrated, which are offered by the Facebook Inc., USA (“Facebook”). Facebook plug-ins can be recognized by the Facebook logo or the “Like-Button” (“Like”) on the AIPMO website. An overview of the Facebook plug-ins can be found here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
If the user does not wish Facebook to associate the visit to AIPMO’s webpages with the user’s Facebook account, the user should log out of the Facebook user account.
Functions of Twitter services are integrated on the AIPMO website. These features are offered by Twitter Inc., USA (“Twitter”). By using Twitter and the “Re-Tweet” feature, the web pages visited will be linked to the user’s Twitter account and shared with other users. Thereby, among others, transfer data such as IP address, browser type, visited domains, visited pages, mobile service providers, device and application IDs and search terms are being transmitted to Twitter.
Users can change their privacy settings on Twitter in the Account Settings at http://twitter.com/account/settings. For any questions, please contact [email protected].
Use of the Google+1 button enables the user to publish information worldwide. The Google+1 button provides the individual and other users with personalized content from Google and its affiliates. Google stores both the information that the user adds to +1 for content and information regarding the page viewed when the user clicked +1. The user’s +1 may appear alongside the profile name and photo in Google services, such as search results or in the user’s Google profile, or elsewhere on websites and ads on the web.
Google records information about the user’s +1 activity to improve Google’s services.
To use the Google +1 button, the user’s account needs to be globally visible i.e. Google public profile that shows at least the name chosen for the profile. This name will be used in all Google services. In some cases, this name may also replace a different name that the user applies when sharing content through the Google Account. The identity of the Google Profile may be displayed to users who know the user’s email address or have other identifying information.
- Data Security
AIPMO secures this website and other systems through technical and organizational measures against loss, destruction, unauthorized access, modification or dissemination of user data by unauthorized persons. However, absolute protection cannot be guaranteed.
Where possible, AIPMO data processing systems are privacy-friendly from the outset, e.g., designed by minimizing and pseudonymizing personal data.
- User Rights
Right to Information: Users can always ask AIPMO in writing whether and which personal data is stored about them, as well as all details of any processing. User applications will be completed free of charge (except for excessive or open unsubstantiated applications) and promptly.
Right to Correction, Deletion and Restriction: Users also have the right to rectify incorrect or incomplete data as well as the right to the immediate deletion or restriction of the processing of their data.
Data Portability: Users can transfer personal data from one location to another in a common machine-readable format.
Renunciation: As far as AIPMO uses data for a purpose that requires user consent in accordance with the applicable law, AIPMO will always ask for the users’ express consent and log the answer. When revoking consent or objecting, a simple message to the address of the responsible body according to para. 2 of this Policy is sufficient.
- Updating and Amendments
AIPMO may amend, change or update any part of the Policy without prior notice.
