Depending on the processing of personal data, in addition to the applicable Swiss law (Federal Act on Data Protection (DSG) of 19 June 1992, SR 235.1), European data protection law (Ordinance (EU) 2016/679, Basic Data Protection Ordinance (EU-DSGVO)) may also apply.
B. Data Protection Information
ALSO Holding AG, Meierhofstrasse 5, 6032 Emmen has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures for processing by the individuals responsible in order to ensure that the personal data processed via this website, in addition to customer data, is protected to the best possible extent also outside this website. However, processes cannot be fully monitored and controlled, so absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, each person concerned is free to provide us with personal data when making contact via our website, including by alternative means such as telephone.
2. What data do we collect and how is it used based on what justification?
2.1 Website visitors:
We record the IP address from which you access our website, the browser version used, the operating system used, the date and time of access, the country of origin, the website from which you accessed our website (referrer). We collect this data on the basis of our legitimate interest, which is concerned with your system and data security and system stability, for the purpose of establishing the website connection, recognising and protecting against attack attempts, for statistical evaluation, to answer and process your inquiries and to optimise and offer our online services. This data will not be used to create individual user profiles and will not be passed on to third parties.
Session Cookies: These are cookies that are only stored on your computer for the duration of an Internet session and are required for transactions. These session cookies are used exclusively for connection control and navigation and enable you to surf our Internet pages in a user-friendly manner (e.g. for processing a purchase while you are logged on to our shop systems). Session cookies are deleted again when you end your browser session.
For certain offers we use persistent cookies, which serve to recognise visitors and are stored on your computer for future sessions. These cookies are valid for 6 to 24 months (e.g. a persistent cookie is required in order not to record your surfing behaviour by means of tracking tools used).
You have the option of setting your browser so that these cookies are not stored in the first place or that the cookies are deleted at the end of your Internet session. You can revoke your consent to cookies at any time by deleting the cookies that have already been saved. See also the instructions of the corresponding search engine operators:

However, please note that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of our website.
Social Media Plugins: We use the following social media plug-ins on our website to make our company better known and market it efficiently. The responsibility for the data protection-compliant operation is to be guaranteed by the respective provider of the social media plugin. The purpose and scope of the data collection are determined by the data protection information of the respective provider of the social media plugin. ALSO itself does not collect personal data using social media plugins or information about their use. ALSO uses the following plugins on its website:
No further personal data is collected via the website, unless you provide this information voluntarily or it is processed within the scope of the customer relationship on the basis of legitimate interests. Your personal data will be processed in this context on the basis of ALSO’s overriding legitimate interest.
Webtrekk: ALSO uses Webtrekk, a web analysis service provided by Webtrekk GmbH, on its Internet pages. Some data collected during your visit to our website is processed for statistical analysis. For this reason, we pass this data on to Webtrekk GmbH. This statistical evaluation helps us to optimise our offer accordingly. Webtrekk GmbH is certified for data protection in the area of web controlling. Your IP address is transmitted with each server inquiry. Your IP address will only be stored anonymously. Conclusions for personally identifying you are basically impossible. Collection of your data occurs by setting a pixel, which is integrated on the website. Webtrekk uses so-called “session cookies” as well as “last-click cookies”, which are deleted when you end your browser session. Webtrekk also uses so-called “evercookies”, whose duration does not exceed six months and are deleted at the latest after a defined number of uses. Webtrekk does not merge this user data with other data concerning the bearer of the pseudonym. This data will be deleted as soon as storage is no longer required for the creation of the usage analysis, or if the user requests this.
You can object to the data storage of your anonymously collected visitor data, so that it will no longer be collected in the future. A persistent cookie is set to exclude you from web controlling. This contradiction applies as long as you do not delete the cookie.
