Privacy Policy

Data protection and data security are important to effectas GmbH (“effectas”; “we”). We process your personal data responsibly, in accordance with the applicable legal provisions and in accordance with this privacy policy.

Content of this privacy policy

In this privacy policy, we inform you about how we collect and process personal data when you visit our website and social media pages or contact us.

Controller responsible for data processing

effectas GmbH is responsible for the data processing described in this privacy policy.

If you have any questions or would like to exercise your rights as a data subject under data protection law, please contact us at or write to: effectas GmbH, Bundesplatz 2, 6300 Zug.

Processed personal data

We collect the information you provide to us when you contact us.

This includes general personal data, e.g. name and contact details, as well as any information about your position or role at the organisation on whose behalf you are contacting us.

Use for information

You can find out about effectas and our range of services on our website without telling us who you are. As with any connection to a web server, the server on which we make a website available automatically logs and stores certain technical data. This includes the IP address and operating system of your device, the date and time of use and the type of browser you use to access the website.

Web analysis

We use web analysis services to evaluate the use of our website and to obtain information for its optimisation. The web analysis services we use collect and store usage data using cookies. Before being transmitted to a server outside Switzerland/EU/EEA, the requesting IP addresses are truncated. We therefore do not transmit any personal data to the provider of the web analysis services abroad.

Social plugins

The social plugins used on our website allow you to recommend and share our content on social networks. You can recognise the social plugins on the website by the logos of the respective social network. When you interact with the social plugin, data is sent to the respective provider of the social network.

Resources from external websites

We integrate resources from external servers on our website. These contain visible content (Google Maps) and technical resources (Google reCapcha).

The resources are used to improve the user experience or security of our website. When you access these resources, the operator of the external servers learns your IP address and/or certain marginal data that is necessary for the use of the external operator’s servers.

Use of cookies

We use cookies, tags and similar technologies on our website to provide you with the best possible user experience and to help us improve the website. Cookies are text files that are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website or use an app.

Some of the cookies we use are necessary to provide certain functions of the website. In addition, we use cookies to analyse the use of the website and to obtain information to optimise the website.

You can instruct your browser not to accept cookies or to ask you each time before a cookie is set. You can also delete cookies on your device by using the corresponding function of your browser.

Use of our social media pages

On our social media pages, you will find posts about current developments at effectas and our range of services. The social media providers collect and analyse usage data such as the number of visits and demographic information about visitors to our company pages.

We receive analyses from the social media providers based on this data. These only contain aggregated or otherwise sufficiently anonymised data. Only the respective provider can identify you on the basis of the usage data collected. Please therefore observe the data protection information of the respective provider.
