Based on Article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution and the data protection provisions of the Swiss Confederation (Data Protection Act, DSG), every person has the right to protection of his or her privacy as well as protection against misuse of his or her personal data. We comply with these provisions. Personal data is treated as strictly confidential and is neither sold nor passed on to third parties.
The protection of your personal data is very important to us. Therefore, your personal data will always be treated confidentially and always in accordance with the current legal data protection regulations. By visiting our website, you agree to the collection, processing and use of data in accordance with the following description.
Collection of access data and log files when visiting our website.
Based on our legitimate interests (ensuring the proper operation of the website), we collect data about accesses to the server on which our website is located (so-called server log files). In these log files, information is stored such as the name of the website accessed, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type (including version), the user's operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider. Log file information is collected for security reasons (e.g. for the clarification of abuse or fraud) and stored as long as this is necessary for evidentiary purposes. This is anonymous data that is only used by us to optimize our web presence and thus provide our customers with a better online experience.
References and links
We do not accept any liability for direct or indirect references to external websites (via so-called hyperlinks) that lie outside our area of responsibility. We hereby expressly declare that at the time the links were created, no illegal content was identifiable on the linked pages. We have no influence on the current and future design, content or authorship of the linked pages. Therefore, we hereby expressly dissociate ourselves from all contents of all linked/connected pages that were changed after our link was set. For illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and especially for damages resulting from the use or non-use of such information, only the provider of the linked page is liable.
Handling personal data
Personal data means all information that relates to a specific or identifiable person. A data subject is a person about whom personal data is processed. Processing means any handling of personal data, regardless of the means and procedures used, in particular the storage, acquisition, disclosure, storage, deletion, modification, use or destruction of personal data. BNS Attorneys at Law processes personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law. Data are treated by us exclusively if:

A transfer of your data to third parties - apart from the above-mentioned purposes - does not take place.
Storage period of your data
Users' right to information
As a user, you have the right to request information free of charge at any time about the personal data that has been stored about you. In addition, you have the right to correct incorrect data, block and delete your personal data (unless this conflicts with a legal obligation to retain data) and object to the future processing of your personal data in accordance with legal requirements.
This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize 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.
Use of Google Tag Manager
Within our website, we use the Google Tag Manager of the company Google Inc. In the European area, the company "Google Ireland Limited" based in Ireland is responsible for this. With the help of the Google Tag Manager, we manage various code snippets of different tracking tools.
The data that is stored by Google in this context is mostly located on Google's own servers, which are distributed all over the world. However, most of them are located in the USA. The following link will tell you where the servers are located: https://www.google.com
Use of Google Analytics
The information collected by the cookie about the use of our pages (including your IP address) is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In the event that IP anonymization is activated, however, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. IP anonymization is active on our website.
We use the data collected by GA to perform analyses on user and user behavior and, as a result, to optimize our website and thus improve the user experience on our website. The collected data will be kept confidential at all times and will not be shared with third parties.
