Privacy policy

1. the safety of the users comes first

XPEDIT AG (hereinafter XPEDIT) respects the privacy of users of the gear.ch website (in French, Italian, English as well as in German – hereinafter the “Websites”). This privacy policy forms the basis for the processing of personal data and provides information about the type of user data collected by XPEDIT and how XPEDIT uses this data. XPEDIT complies with the applicable data protection laws and processes personal data solely for the purposes for which the data were transmitted.

This Privacy Policy will be adapted, supplemented or amended from time to time. With each new call or visit to the web pages, the current, retrievable version applies.

2. type of data collected

When visiting the websites, statistical visitor data is collected on which parts of the website are visited particularly frequently by the respective user. For example, data regarding the browser used by the user, operating system, weblogs and other connection data may be collected, regardless of whether their collection is necessary for our or other purposes. In this context, it is sometimes necessary that so-called cookies are used. This collected data does not contain any personal reference or is sufficiently anonymized so that no conclusions can be drawn about your person.

XPEDIT does not automatically collect personal data of users, such as the name, address, telephone number or e-mail address. An exception to this is information that the user voluntarily submits to XPEDIT by filling out website forms or otherwise contacting XPEDIT through the websites.

3. use of cookies

In order to continuously improve the website for users, XPEDIT may use cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored by browsers (e.g. Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox) on the user’s computer hard drive to enable analysis of the user’s use of the website and to set the user’s own personal preferences (e.g. language selection, shopping cart, etc.). The cookies are completely anonymized and do not contain any personal data. At no time will spy software be installed or used to access data and information stored on the computer.

Most browsers automatically accept such cookies, but browsers can be configured not to accept or store cookies. For details, refer to the operating instructions or the help function of the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the user may no longer be able to use all the functions of the websites.

4. use of the data

The websites use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the websites (including the IP address of the user) is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate the user’s IP address with any other data held by Google. By using the websites, the user consents to the processing of data about him/her by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

Data that users transmit on their own initiative as users of the website may be used by XPEDIT for the purpose of improving the websites as well as providing individual support to users. This includes, but is not limited to, sending information, offers, or notifications related to the product line or services to. The XPEDIT newsletter is only sent if the user so wishes.

5. disclosure of your data

XPEDIT and any subsidiaries and branches within the group of companies may use personal data in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Furthermore, the personal data will not be disclosed to third parties.

This does not apply if the user has agreed to the transfer of data to companies that are not affiliated with XPEDIT or if XPEDIT is legally, officially or judicially obligated to do so. An exception also exists when service providers are used to support XPEDIT in data processing, website administration or in any other way, as well as in the provision of the products and services requested by the user. These third parties are required to maintain the same level of security and data protection as XPEDIT.

6. data security

Unfortunately, the transmission of data via the Internet is not absolutely secure. XPEDIT cooperates with service providers and Internet providers who take appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect the personal data of users. However, XPEDIT cannot guarantee the security of the data transmitted by the user. Any data transmission is therefore at your own risk.

7. your information and revocation rights

Of course, every user is free to inform XPEDIT at any time – for example in an e-mail – that the personal data should not be used for contacting in the future. Also the participation in the special services of the websites, such as the newsletter service, can be revoked at any time.

In addition, it is possible to obtain information on the processing of the data or to request a copy of the personal data collected via the websites. Corresponding inquiries should be sent in writing to XPEDIT AG, Spinnereistrasse 5, 5300 Turgi or info@gear.ch.

8. final provisions

Should individual provisions or parts of these data protection provisions prove to be void or invalid, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining data protection provisions.

The place of jurisdiction and the applicable law are governed by the General Terms and Conditions of XPEDIT AG. If you have any questions about these regulations, please contact us.
