After entering the aforementioned information, the registration for the newsletter takes place automatically.

We will use your data for sending the newsletter until you revoke your consent. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future or use the unsubscribe link in the newsletter e-mails.

Our newsletter contains a so-called web beacon or similar technical means (tracking pixel).

Through the web beacon, we receive the following information about the newsletter dispatch:

This information is used for statistical analysis of our newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of the recipients. The web beacon is deleted when you delete the newsletter.

You can prevent the use of the web beacon by disabling the display of HTML in your mail programme, if this is not already the case by default. On the following pages, you will find explanations on how to make this setting in the most common e-mail programmes.

5. Cloudflare

We use the functions of CloudFlare. The provider is CloudFlare, Inc. 665 3rd St. 200, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. CloudFlare offers a so-called worldwide distributed content delivery network with DNS. Technically, the information transfer between your browser and our web pages is routed through CloudFlare's network. CloudFlare is thus able to analyze the data traffic between users and our websites, for example, to detect and prevent attacks on our services. In addition, CloudFlare may store cookies on your computer for optimization and analysis.

Cloudflare generally forwards only that data which is controlled by us as the website operator. The content is therefore not determined by Cloudflare, but always by the website operator itself. In addition, Cloudflare may collect certain information about the use of our website and process data that is sent by us or for which Cloudflare has received appropriate instructions. In most cases, Cloudflare receives data such as contact information, IP addresses, security fingerprints, DNS log data, and website performance data derived from browser activity. Log data helps Cloudflare detect new threats, for example. This allows Cloudflare to ensure a high level of security protection for our website. Cloudflare processes this data as part of the services in compliance with applicable laws.

For security reasons, Cloudflare also uses a cookie. The cookie (__cfduid) is used to identify individual users behind a shared IP address and to apply security settings for each individual user. This cookie becomes very useful, for example, when you use our website from a location where there are a number of infected computers. However, if your computer is trustworthy, we can recognize this from the cookie. Thus, despite infected PCs in the vicinity, you can surf our website unhindered. It is also important to know that this cookie does not store any personal data. This cookie is absolutely necessary for the Cloudflare security features and cannot be disabled.

Cloudflare addresses in their privacy policy that they are not responsible for the content they receive. For example, when you ask Cloudflare to update or delete your content, Cloudflare basically refers you to us as the website operator. You can also completely prevent Cloudflare from collecting and processing all of your data by disabling the execution of script code in your browser or by installing a script blocker in your browser (see section 3 above regarding Cookies).

6. Transfer of personal data abroad

Association Enso is also entitled to transfer your personal data to third companies (commissioned service providers) abroad, insofar as this is necessary for the data processing described in this privacy policy. These are obliged to data protection to the same extent as we are. If the level of data protection in a country does not correspond to that in Switzerland, we will ensure by contract that the protection of your personal data always corresponds to that in Switzerland.

7. Data security

We use appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect personal data against manipulation, partial or complete loss and against unauthorised access by third parties.

8. Note on data transmissions to the USA

Some of the third-party service providers mentioned in this privacy policy are based in the USA. For the sake of completeness, we would like to point out that there are surveillance measures in place in the USA by US authorities, which generally allow the storage of all personal data of all persons, whose data has been transmitted to the USA. This is done without any differentiation, limitation or exception based on the objective pursued and without any objective criterion that would make it possible to limit the access of the US authorities to the data and its subsequent use to very specific, strictly limited purposes that are capable of justifying the intrusion associated with both the access to and the use of this data. Furthermore, we would like to point out that in the USA, foreign data subjects do not have any legal remedies that allow them to obtain access to the data concerning them and to obtain its correction or deletion, or that there is no effective judicial legal protection against general access rights of US authorities. We explicitly draw the attention of data subjects to this legal and factual situation so that they can make an appropriately informed decision to consent to the use of their data.

We would like to point out that the USA does not have a sufficient level of data protection from the perspective of Switzerland – among other things, due to the issues mentioned in this section. Insofar as we have explained in this privacy policy that recipients of data (such as Google, Mailchimp) are based in the USA, we will ensure that your data is protected at an appropriate level with our partners through contractual arrangements with these companies as well as any additional appropriate guarantees required, which protect the rights of individuals, whose personal data is transmitted to a third country.
