All of the internet activities of availabill AG occur on the basis of the laws that govern data protection and data security in Switzerland. These data protection guidelines provide information on how availabill AG handles information collected during your visit to the availabill AG website.

Collection and processing of personal data

Personal data are considered to be any information relating to your identity, such as your name, E-mail address or mailing address. Such data are stored only when you make them available to availabill AG, e.g. when you order information material or subscribe to the newsletter.

Use and dissemination of personal data

availabill AG uses your personal data exclusively for technical administration of websites, to grant you access to special information and for other communication with you. availabill AG will not pass along your personal data to third parties or use them in any other way. The employees of availabill AG have an obligation to confidentiality.

It’s your choice

It is up to you to decide which information you would like to make available to availabill AG. If you do not want to give any information, you may not be able to access some contents of the availabill AG website. Subscribers to the newsletter can cancel the service at any time.
If your personal data change (e.g. postal code, E-mail or mailing address), you can inform availabill AG by sending an E-mail (contact(at)availabill.ch) requesting that the data be corrected or updated.

Automatically collected data

When you go to the availabill AG website, general, non-personal information (e.g. internet browser used, number of visits, average duration of visit, pages viewed) are collected automatically (without previous registration). This information is used to improve the appeal, content and functionality of the website. In this case, your data are not used for any other purpose or passed along to third parties.

Cookies

Cookies are little files that are temporarily stored on your hard drive. They are used only to retain information on use of the availabill AG website. They enable your computer to automatically recognise the availabill AG website the next time you access it. However, cookies contain no personal data, so your privacy is protected. Depending on how it is set, your browser may automatically accept cookies. But you can change the browser settings at any time and use the availabill AG website without cookies.

You can completely or partially deactivate the setting of cookies by our website in your browser at any time. If cookies are deactivated, you may no longer have access to all the functions of our website.

Google AdWords

On our website we use the online web programme “Google AdWords”, a service of Google Inc. based in the USA, and the conversion tracking option contained in this programme. If you come to our website via a Google ad, Google AdWords places a conversion cookie in your browser, which enables us to compile statistics on the use of our website. This conversion cookie loses its validity after 90 days at the latest and is not used to identify the user.

Please see the following link for more information about conversion tracking, including how to prevent the cookie set by Google from collecting data http://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html 

Google Analytics

On our website we use “Google Analytics”, a web analysis service of Google Inc. based in the USA. Google Analytics also uses the cookies already described. The information thus generated about your use of the website (browser type/version, operating system used, referrer URL (previously visited website), anonymised IP address and time of server inquiry) is transmitted to Google servers and stored there. Based on this stored data no conclusions can be made about your person. This information may be transferred to third parties if they process the data on behalf of Google.

Under no circumstances will the IP address be linked to other data concerning the user. Availabill AG uses an add-on for Google Analytics which allows Google to shorten and anonymise the IP address of the internet connection.

Furthermore, the data collected is used to create user profiles using pseudonyms. These are used to analyse visitor behaviour and are evaluated to improve and tailor our offer to meet the needs of our customers. The pseudonymised user profiles are not merged with personal data of the carrier.

You can object to the collection by Google Analytics at any time. To do this, you must download and install a browser add-on from https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. Once the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated, you have the option of reinstalling or reactivating it.

As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting the data by clicking this link (Note: the click does not generate a visible action) and thus set an opt-out cookie. The opt-out cookie is valid only in this browser and only for our website. It is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must also reset the opt-out cookie.
