Who we are
sustaily development ag / Peter Merian-Strasse 54 / 4052 Basel
In cooperation with our hosting providers, we make every effort to protect the databases as well as possible against unauthorized access, loss, misuse or falsification.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
By using this website, you consent to the collection, processing and use of data as described below. In principle, this website can be visited without registration. In the process, data such as pages accessed or names of the accessed file, 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 as far as possible on a voluntary basis. The data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.
Purpose of this website
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 then see that you are coming from our website. The social media providers use this data for their own purposes. We can only inform here that this happens, but we know nothing about how these data are handled by the social media providers.
The use of pixels from social media providers is possible on a situational basis. 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 that relates 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, acquisition, deletion, storage, modification, destruction and use of personal data.
We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law. In addition, we process – to the extent and insofar as the EU GDPR is applicable – personal data in accordance with the following legal bases in connection with Art. 6 para. 1 GDPR:
lit. a) Processing of personal data with the consent of the data subject.
lit. b) processing of personal data for the fulfillment of a contract with the data subject as well as for the implementation of corresponding pre-contractual measures.
lit. c) processing of personal data to comply with a legal obligation to which we are subject under any applicable law of the EU or under any applicable law of any country where the GDPR applies in whole or in part.
lit. d) processing of personal data in order to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person.
lit. f) processing of personal data in order to safeguard the legitimate interests of us or of third parties, unless the fundamental freedoms and rights and interests of the data subject are overridden. Legitimate interests include, 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 storage obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we restrict processing accordingly.
This website 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 browser address bar changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser bar.
If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
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 version
Operating system used
Host name of the accessing computer
Time of the server request
These data are not directly related to personal data. This data is not merged with other data sources.

Use of Google Tag Manager and Global Site Tag
For better analytics capability in interaction with Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager is used. This allows data about user behavior to be collected and forwarded.

More information about the exact use can be found at https://www.google.com/intl/de/tagmanager/use-policy.html.
The Global Site Tag is set to localize information such as traffic or shopping behavior. Such tags are used in interaction with Google Analytics or Google Ads.
