We process personal data in accordance with data protection regulations and only to the extent necessary to provide the services or content you have requested.

Security of processing

We ensure the necessary technical and organisational security measures and adequately protect your personal data from unauthorised access and misuse.

Automatically collected data

Server log files

Description, scope and purpose of data processing
Our Internet pages log all enquiries and accesses of visitors to our Internet pages automatically and save these data as so-called server log files.

For security reasons, you therefore have no option of rejecting the collection of this data.

Access to the server log files is restricted to a few system administrators of Adval Tech Management AG and our service provider cab services ag (cab services ag, Grellingerstrasse 60, CH-4052 Basel).
