IV. Cookies | Tracking and other technologies and platforms in connection with the use of our websites
However, you can set your browser to reject cookies, save them for one session only or otherwise delete them prematurely. Most browsers are set to accept cookies by default. We use permanent cookies to help us understand how you use our services and content. If you block cookies, certain functionalities (e.g. language selection) may no longer work.
We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” in order to ensure anonymised collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).
We use Facebook Pixel from Facebook on our website. This is an evaluation tool from Facebook Incorporated, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. With the help of a code implemented on our website, Facebook can track your user actions if you have come to our website via Facebook ads. If you are a Facebook user and are logged in, your visit to our website is automatically assigned to your Facebook user account.
Facebook Pixel enables our advertising to be better tailored to your wishes and interests. Facebook also uses the data collected for analysis purposes and its own advertisements. The data collected are anonymous and not visible to us and can only be used in the context of ad placements. We reserve the right to change the service provider if necessary.
As the site operator, we have no influence on the use of the data by Facebook. You can find out more about protecting your privacy in Facebook’s privacy notices. You can manage the use of data for advertising purposes in your Facebook profile settings.
No personal information is transmitted to the respective providers before the corresponding link or plug-in is activated. Your accessing the linked page is also the basis for data processing by the respective providers. We have no influence on the data processing operations, nor are we aware of the full extent of the data collection, the purposes of the processing or the storage periods. We also have no information on the deletion of data by the providers of the plug-ins.
V. Secure data transmission
When you transmit information to us via the Internet or by other electronic means, there is always a risk that it may be lost, damaged or manipulated. You therefore do so at your own risk.
Data traffic via the internet platforms provided is always transmitted in encrypted form. We ensure that there are technical and organisational measures in place to protect the personal data received from unauthorised processing, loss and destruction. Personal data that you provide to us via website forms are transmitted to us in encrypted form via a secure connection. The security procedure used (SSL, Secure Sockets Layer) corresponds to the usual state of the art.
All employees of the Ruedi Lüthy Foundation who handle your data are obliged to comply with the data protection rules. Access to the system is via an authorisation procedure. SSL encryption (recognisable by https:// in the address line of the browser) is a protocol for encrypting data during transmission from the web server to the browser. This transmission offers particularly high security. During transmission, your personal data are encrypted between your computer and our SSL server using the SSL protocol.

The Ruedi Lüthy Foundation has no influence on the current and future design, content or authorship of the linked pages.
