Liability for content
The author does not take responsibility for correctness, accuracy, topicality, reliability and completeness of information. Liability claims against the author due to material and immaterial damages resulting from accessing or use/non-use of published information or through misuse of the connection or technical faults are hereby excluded.

Data transmission via the Internet
The Internet is an open network accessible to anyone and as such generally does not qualify as a secure environment. Although the individual data packages are generally transmitted using encryption, this does not apply to the sender and the recipient. Furthermore, it is conceivable that data is transferred to another country and therefore, possibly to a country with lower data protection standards than Switzerland, even if both the sender and recipient are located in Switzerland. The operator excludes any liability for security of data during their transmission via the Internet.
Liability for links
References and links on third party websites are not part of our area of responsibility. All responsibility for such websites is declined. Access to and use of such websites occurs at the user’s own risk.
