2. Hosting & Content Delivery Network (CDN)
This website is hosted externally. The personal data collected on this website are stored on the host's servers. This may include, but is not limited to, IP addresses, contact requests, meta and communication data, contractual data, contact data, names, website accesses and other data generated via a website.
External hosting is carried out for the purpose of contract performance for our potential and existing customers (Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR) and in the interest of secure, fast and efficient provision of our online services by a professional provider (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR). If appropriate consent has been obtained, the processing is based exclusively on Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. Consent can be withdrawn at any time.
Our web host will only process your data to the extent necessary to fulfil its service obligations and will follow our instructions regarding the data.
We use the following host:

Through our host, we use the service "Cloudflare". The provider is Cloudflare Inc, 101 Townsend St, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA (hereinafter "Cloudflare").
The use of Cloudflare is based on our legitimate interest in providing a website that is as free from errors and as secure as possible (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR).
You can find more information about security and privacy at Cloudflare here: https://www.cloudflare.com/privacypolicy/.
Commissioned data processing
We have agreed a data processing contract (DP contract) with our host. This is a contract required under data protection legislation to ensure that the service provider always follows our instructions and complies with GDPR when processing personal data pertaining to our website visitors.
3. General notes and mandatory information

Controller, data protection officer.
The controller for data processing on this website is:
Vision Group AG
Phone: +41 44 823 10 10
Email: [email protected]
The controller is the natural or legal person who, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the personal data processing (e.g. names, email addresses, etc.).
If you have any concerns regarding data protection, these can be addressed to our data protection officer at the following contact address: Data Protection Officer, Vision Group AG, Neugutstrasse 52, 8600 Dübendorf, SWITZERLAND, or by email to [email protected] with the subject "Data protection".
Within the European Union we have the following branch:

Note on data transfer to the USA
Some of the tools we use are offered by companies based in the USA. When these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred for processing to servers based in the US for the relevant company. Please note, the USA has not been approved as a safe third country under EU data protection law. For example, US companies are required to release personal data to security authorities without any possibility of legal action to prevent this by you, the data subject. Consequently, it cannot be ruled out that your data located on US servers might be processed, evaluated and permanently stored by US authorities (e.g. intelligence agencies) for monitoring purposes. We have no influence over these processing activities.
Withdrawal of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You can withdraw consent that you gave previously at any time. The legality of the data processing carried out until the withdrawal of consent remains unaffected.
Right to object to the collection of data in special cases and to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)
Where personal data are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for these purposes; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for the purpose of direct marketing (objection under Art. 21 (2) GDPR).
Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of a breach of GDPR, data subjects shall have a right of appeal to a supervisory authority, specifically in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged breach. The right of appeal is without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to data portability
For data that we process automatically based on your consent or to fulfil a contract, you have the right to have the data issued to you or to a third party in a commonly used, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.
Access, erasure and rectification
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients, the purpose of data processing and, if applicable, a right to rectify or erase these data. You can contact us at any time with regard to this and other questions about personal data.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time to do this. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the review, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data is/was unlawful, you may request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need the data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of erasure.
- If you file an objection under Art. 21 (1) GDPR, a balance must be struck between your interests and ours. Until it has been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If the processing of your personal data has been restricted, such data shall, with the exception of storage, only be processed with your consent, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or of a Member State.
