The use of our website "www.avobis.ch" is basically possible without any indication of personal data. However, if you wish to make use of special services of our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.
By means of this data protection declaration, we would like to inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us.
As the data controller, the Avobis Group has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as completely as possible. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can in principle have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, you are also free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, such as telephone.

Subscribe to our newsletter
For our newsletter dispatch we use the so-called "Double-Opt-In-Procedure". This means that we will only send you the newsletter after you have expressly confirmed that you want us to activate the newsletter service. We will send you a notification via e-mail, where you confirm by clicking on a link that you would like to receive the newsletter.
The "Avobis Group" informs its customers and business partners at regular intervals by means of a newsletter about the company's offers. In principle, you can only receive our company newsletter if (1) you have a valid e-mail address and (2) you have registered to receive the newsletter.
If you register for the newsletter dispatch for the first time, for legal reasons a confirmation mail is sent in the "Double-Opt-In-Procedure". By completing this separate "double opt-in procedure", you have given your consent for the newsletter subscription.
Should you no longer wish to receive newsletters from us at a later date, you can revoke your consent at any time. A message in text form to the mentioned contact data is sufficient for this. Of course you will also find a unsubscribe link in every newsletter.
The "Avobis Group" newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. A pixel-code is a miniature graphic that is embedded in e-mails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. The embedded pixel-code allows us to determine if and when an email was opened by an individual and which links in the email were accessed by that individual.
Such personal data collected via the pixel-code contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by us in order to optimise the newsletter dispatch and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of our target group. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties.
