Privacy policy

This website and its content is provided by the Institut für Interventionelle Schmerzmedizin Zürich AG with its registered office in Zurich (in short: IISZ AG). The following data protection declaration applies to the use of our website and the services offered on it, unless otherwise agreed in a specific contract. This privacy policy informs you about the collection of personal data during your visit to this website. By using this website, you agree to this privacy policy. IISZ AG attaches great importance to data protection. Due to its legal obligations (medical confidentiality according to Art. 321 StGB, Data Protection Act and other federal and cantonal regulations), a high level of legal protection already exists. The collection and processing of your personal data is carried out in compliance with the applicable data protection laws and requirements. In principle, IISZ AG only offers its services in Switzerland and only addresses persons resident in Switzerland.

Each time an individual or an automated system calls up the website, a series of general data and information is collected. This general data and information is stored in the server's log files. The following data may be collected: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an access to the website, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our IT infrastructure. This data and information is required in order to (1) correctly display the content of our website, (2) optimize the content of our website, (3) ensure the long-term functionality of our IT infrastructure and the technology of our website, and (4) provide the necessary information to law enforcement authorities in the event of a cyber attack. Furthermore, IISZ AG may use such data and information for statistical purposes, for example to increase the data protection and data security of its IT infrastructure. The data and information collected in this way are only processed for the purposes just mentioned and stored separately from any personal data provided by an individual concerned.

This website may contain links to websites of other providers. IISZ AG has no influence on these websites, their content, offers or availability or the data protection declarations and provisions applicable there. It therefore declines any liability.

IISZ AG may use cookies on its website to provide the best possible service and specific information. Cookies contain a so-called cookie ID, a unique identifier of the cookie, which assigns websites and servers to a specific internet browser. A specific internet browser can be recognised and identified via this unique cookie ID. The purpose of this recognition is to provide users of this website with an optimal visitor experience and to improve the website design. Such information about the use of this website (including your IP address) may, for example, in the case of Google Analytics, be transmitted to servers abroad and stored there. Google Analytics uses this information, for example, to compile reports on visitors' website activity. Google may also transfer this data to third parties if required to do so by law, or if such third parties process the data on Google's behalf. Google, as well as other cookie providers, have their own privacy statements and policies. The use and processing of data stored via cookies by third-party companies such as Google are outside the area of responsibility of IISZ AG. It therefore declines any liability. IISZ AG may use further service offers from third-party providers in order to integrate their content and services, such as videos or articles, into the website. Such integration always requires that these third-party providers can collect and process the IP address and other information of visitors to this website. In the settings of your browser, you can block the use of cookies, request a warning before a cookie is created or delete cookies subsequently. Please note that if you block or subsequently delete cookies, you may not be able to use this website to its full extent or its display may be impaired.

Buttons ("social media plugins") may be placed on this website that establish contact with the servers of social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, etc.). By clicking on one of these buttons, you give your consent for certain data such as IP address, website visit, etc. to be transmitted to the respective operator of the social network. This data transfer takes place without the intervention of IISZ AG. The data protection declarations and provisions of the respective social networks apply.

Due to legal regulations ("imprint obligation"), the website of IISZ AG contains certain information that enables a quick electronic contact as well as direct communication, which also includes a general e-mail address. If you contact us via the communication options offered on our website, your contact details and content will only be used to process and respond to your enquiry.

Access to information and services on this website is provided via the Internet, which is an open network accessible to everyone. The transmission of your data via this website or via means of communication such as e-mail, SMS or WhatsApp is generally considered to be insecure. IISZ AG therefore declines any liability.

You have various rights regarding your data within the framework of the Data Protection Act. In particular, you have the right to obtain information, correction and deletion (insofar as the data no longer needs to be retained for legal reasons). The exercise of such rights usually requires that you clearly prove your identity (e.g. by means of a copy of your identity card, where your identity is otherwise not clear or cannot be verified). To assert your rights, please contact IISZ AG. We are at your disposal for further information on this matter.

IISZ AG may amend this privacy policy at any time without prior notice. The current version published on our website shall apply. Insofar as the data protection declaration is part of a contract made with you, we will inform you of the change by email or other suitable means in the event of an update.
