Legal information
The Swiss Bar Association gives no guarantee that information published online is complete and accurate. Personal data are used only to process enquiries or to provide information on our services and products. No data whatsoever are sold, leased or transmitted to third parties.

When reference is made to other Websites we accept no responsibility for their content and data protection practices.

Privacy Policy
The protection of the private sphere is important to us. Please note the following points of the Privacy Policy below.

External links
We carefully scrutinised all links to external Websites when creating our Website. We did not ascertain any possible legal infringements at the time the links were created. However, we have no influence on the content of linked Websites; the respective service provider is responsible for this. Should it be possible to access illegal Websites via the hyperlinks, please let us know.

We will then check this and if necessary remove the links.

As a basic principle you can visit our Website without having to give details about your person. Solely non-personal user data like your IP address, the last page visited, the browser used, date, time, etc. are anonymised and evaluated internally for the purpose of recognising trends and improving our online service. You cannot be identified from these data.

The following data is processed as part of the Matomo reach analysis: the type and version of browser you use, the operating system you use, your country of origin, the date and time of the server request, the number of visits, the time you spend on the website and the external links you click. The user's IP address is anonymised before it is stored.

No sharing of information
The data referred to above are neither sold nor shared with third parties.

Cookies
In certain cases so-called "cookies" are installed. The browser can be adjusted in such a way that before a cookie is stored a warning appears on the screen. You can also refrain from the benefits of personal cookies, in which case certain services cannot be used.
