Privacy Policy

Basic information

This data protection declaration is intended to inform the users of this website about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the website operator [cycling-unlimited.ch].

The website operator takes your data protection very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory provisions. As new technologies and the constant development of this website may result in changes to this data protection declaration, we recommend that you read the data protection declaration again at regular intervals.

Definitions of the terms used (e.g. “personal data” or “processing”) can be found in Art. 4 DSGVO.

Access data

We, the website operator or page provider, collect data on access to the website on the basis of our legitimate interest (see Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO) and store this data as “server log files” on the website server. The following data are logged in this way:

Visited website
Time at time of access
Amount of transmitted data in bytes
Source/reference from which you accessed the site
Used Browser
Operating system used
Used IP address
The server log files are stored for a maximum of 7 days and then deleted. The data is stored for security reasons, e.g. to be able to clarify cases of abuse. If data must be kept for reasons of evidence, they are excluded from deletion until the incident has been finally clarified.

Range measurement & cookies
This website uses cookies for pseudonymous range measurement, which are transferred to the user’s browser either from our server or the server of third parties. Cookies are small files which are stored on your end device. Your browser accesses these files. The use of cookies increases the user-friendliness and security of this website.

Common browsers offer the setting option not to allow cookies. Note: It is not guaranteed that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if you make the appropriate settings.

Collection and processing of personal data

The website operator collects, uses and passes on your personal data only if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of data.

Personal data are all information which serves to determine your person and which can be traced back to you – for example your name, your e-mail address and telephone number.

You can also visit this website without providing any personal information. However, in order to improve our online offer, we store (without personal reference) your access data to this website. This access data includes, for example, the file you requested or the name of your Internet provider. By making the data anonymous, it is not possible to draw conclusions about your person.

Handling of contact data

If you contact us as a website operator through the contact options offered, your details will be stored so that they can be used to process and answer your enquiry. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.

Google Analytics

On the basis of our legitimate interests, this website uses for the optimization and analysis of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO the service “Google Analytics”, which is provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). The service (Google Analytics) uses “cookies” – text files which are stored on your end device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Google LLC complies with European data protection law and is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

On this website IP-anonymisation is used. The IP address of the users is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area and in the other contracting states of the agreement. Only in individual cases is the IP address initially transferred in full to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Through this shortening, the personal reference of your IP address is no longer necessary. The user’s IP address transmitted by the browser is not combined with other data stored by Google.

Within the framework of the agreement on the contract data agreement, which we as website operator have concluded with Google Inc., the latter uses the information collected to create an evaluation of website use and website activity and provides services associated with Internet use.

The data collected by Google on our behalf is used to evaluate the use of our online offer by individual users, e.g. to create reports on website activity in order to improve our online offer.

You have the option of preventing the storage of cookies on your device by making appropriate settings in your browser. It cannot be guaranteed that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if your browser does not allow cookies.

Furthermore, you can use a browser plug-in to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to Google Inc. and used by Google Inc. The following link will take you to the appropriate plugin: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
