THE NO-BULLSHIT COMPANY®
HIGHPERFORMANCE SCIENTIFIC AG
In cooperation with our hosting providers, we endeavour to protect the databases from foreign access, loss, misuse or forgery to the best of our ability.
Please note that data transmission over the internet (e.g. when communicating by email) may have security vulnerabilities. Protecting the data completely from access by third parties is not possible.
By using this website, you declare your consent to the collection, processing and use of data as described below. This website can be visited without registering. Data such as pages viewed or names of files accessed, date and time are stored on the server, without this data being directly linked to your person. Personal data, in particular name, address or email address, is collected on a voluntary basis wherever possible. No transfer of the data to third parties shall take place without your consent.
Processing of personal data
Personal data is any information that relates to a specific or identifiable person. A data subject is a person about whom personal data is processed. Processing comprises any operation involving personal data, irrespective of the means and procedures used, and in particular the retention, disclosure, deletion, acquisition, removal, storage, modification, destruction and use of personal data.
We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law. Moreover, insofar as the EU GDPR is applicable, we process data according to the following legal framework, in the context of art. 6 (1) GDPR:
a) processing personal data with the consent of the data subject.
b) processing personal data to fulfil a contract with the data subject as well as to carry out corresponding pre-contractual measures.
c) processing personal data to fulfil a legal obligation to which we are subject in accordance with any applicable law of the EU or in accordance with any applicable law of a country in which the GDPR is fully or partially applicable.
d) processing personal data in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person.
f) processing personal data to safeguard our legitimate rights or of third parties, provided this does not outweigh the fundamental rights and freedoms as well as interests of data subjects. Legitimate interests are, in particular, our business interest in being able to provide our website, information security, the enforcement of our own legal claims and compliance with Swiss law.
We process personal data for the period required for the respective purpose or purposes. For longer-lasting retention obligations due to legal and other duties to which we are subject, we restrict the processing accordingly.
Privacy Statement for cookies
This website uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transfer of confidential content, such as, for example, the surveys which you send us as the website operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the address bar of the browser changing from "http://" to "https://" and from the lock icon in your browser bar.
When the SSL encryption is activated, the data which you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Data transmission security (without SSL)
Please note that data which you transmit via an open network such as the internet or an email service without SSL encryption is visible to everyone. You can recognise an unencrypted connection when the browser address bar shows "http://" and no lock symbol is shown in your browser bar. Information which is transmitted over the internet and content received online may be transmitted by third parties via networks under certain circumstances. We cannot guarantee the confidentiality of communications or documents which are transmitted via such open networks or third-party networks.
If you disclose personal information via an open network or third-party network, you should be aware of the fact that your data can get lost or third parties may potentially access this information and consequently may collect and use this data without your agreement. In many cases the individual data packets are transmitted encrypted, but the names of the sender and the recipient are not. The data transfer via such networks is also carried out frequently and without controls via third countries, i.e. also via countries which do not offer the same level of data protection as your country of residence. We assume no responsibility for the security of your data during transmission via the internet and deny any liability for direct and indirect losses. We request that you use other means of communication if you consider this necessary or reasonable for security reasons.
In spite of extensive technical and organisational security measures, data may be lost or intercepted and/or manipulated by unauthorised persons. We take suitable technical and organisational security measures where possible in order to prevent this within our systems. However, your computer is located outside the security region which we can control. You are responsible for informing yourself about the required safety precautions and taking suitable measures in this regard. As website operator, we are not liable in any way for damage that may arise from data loss or manipulation.
Data which you enter in online forms may be passed on to contracted third parties for the purpose of order processing and may be seen and, if necessary, processed by these third parties.

Use of Google Maps
You can find detailed instructions on managing your personal data in connection with Google products here.
This website uses Google conversion tracking. If you have reached an advert placed by Google on our website, Google AdWords places a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an advert displayed by Google. These cookies are no longer valid after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits specific pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, both we and Google can recognise that the user has clicked on the advert and has been redirected to this website. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies thus cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords Customers. The information obtained with the aid of cookies is used to produce statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers learn the total number of users who have clicked on their advert and have been redirected to a site provided with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information with which they could personally identify the user.
If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can reject the setting of a cookie required for this - e.g. via a browser setting which automatically deactivates cookies, or by setting your browser so that cookies from the domain "googleadservices.com" are blocked.
Please note that you cannot delete opt-out cookies if you do not wish to record measurement data. If you have deleted all of your cookies in your browser, you will need to set the respective opt-out cookie again.

The query is for the purpose of distinguishing whether the input is by a human or by automated, machine-based processing. The query includes sending the IP address and optionally further data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of this service. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of reCapcha will not be combined with other data from Google. If necessary, your data will also be transmitted to the USA. For data transmissions to the USA, there is an adequacy decision of the European Commission, the "Privacy Shield". Google is a participant in "Privacy Shield" and is subject to the provisions. By activating the query, you consent to the processing of your data. The processing is based on Art. 6 (1)a of GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time without this affecting the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of your consent until it is revoked.
