We are pleased about your visit to our website and your interest in the range of Protection One Suisse SA services. Protecting your privacy is of utmost importance to us.

Below we will explain which data will be collected during your stay on our website, how they will be used and we will inform you about your rights.

  1. Which data are collected and how are they used?

1.1 Logging

When visiting our website your browser automatically sends technical data which our web server records (server log). The web server is operated by a hoster in Switzerland on our behalf. The recorded data namely include:

  • the browser ID;
  • the date and time of your access;
  • the IP address the website was sent to;
  • the address of the internet site from which you have accessed our website and
  • the pages you have visited on our website.

We use the server log exclusively to ensure the proper operation of our web server (troubleshooting, investigation of misuse, protection from attack attempts). The server log can only be accessed by the hoster whereby no access takes place without concrete grounds. Server logs which are older than 6 months will automatically be deleted.

1.2 Cookies

We employ cookies in order to facilitate your use of our website and tailor it to your needs as well as to optimise our advertising. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer via your web browser.

In the event of your first visit at our website a banner will be displayed asking you for your consent to our use of cookies. If you give your permission we will place cookies on your computer and the banner will not be displayed again during their lifetime. Afterwards, or when you delete the cookies, the banner will be displayed on your next visit on our website in order to obtain your permission again.

You can configure your browser so that cookies are not saved and/or you can delete the cookies via your browser at any time. However, this may lead to restricted functionality and performance of our website.

1.3 Evaluation tool

With the help of cookies we make use of Google Analytics, a web analytics service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States („Google“). Every time you visit our website your internet browser transmits information on your use of the website (e.g. the referring URL, pages you have visited, the internet browser employed, your language settings, your operating system or your screen resolution) to one of Google’s servers in the USA, where the information is saved and analysed. The results will be made available to us in an anonymised form and serve as a basis for the optimisation of our website and our services as well as the placement of advertising. We have activated the IP anonymisation function offered by Google so that Google only saves an abbreviated form of your IP address.

You can prevent data collection and processing by Google at any time. Either by blocking cookies in your internet browser or by downloading and installing the browser plug-in provided by Google: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
