Where We Store and Process Personal Data

Typically, the primary storage location is in Switzerland or Germany; often with a backup to a data center in a second, legally compliant region. The storage location(s) are chosen in order to operate efficiently, improve performance, and create redundancies in order to protect the data in the event of an outage or other problem. We take steps to ensure that the data we collect under this Privacy Notice is processed according to the provisions of this notice and the requirements of applicable law wherever the data is located.


Children

We do not intentionally process any Personal Data of children. Our Sites, along with the products and services offered through them, are intended for use by individuals who are 18 years of age or older, unless supervised by a parent or legal guardian. Consequently, if it comes to our attention, or if we reasonably suspect that we have collected Personal Data from a child, we will promptly delete such information. This action will be taken irrespective of any existing contractual commitments, in compliance with legal obligations regarding the protection of children's data
