The cookies listed below are used on our website in order to make them more user-friendly. Cookies are data which the visited website or its server stores in your computer via the browser, e.g. in order to recognize it again later.

Data security

Degiorgio takes appropriate security measures to increase data security. These include, for example, protecting certain areas of the website with SSL encryption or passwords and restricting access to personal information to Degiorgio employees and contractors who need to know the information in order to process it for its intended purpose. However, you should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. E-mails in particular can be insecure. Unauthorized third parties may be able to access your data that you send over the Internet. This can lead to these data being made accessible to third parties, disclosed, changed in content or lost, or to other problems. Even if the sender and recipient are located in the same country, data sent over the Internet may leave that country and be transferred to a country where data protection requirements are less stringent than in the country in which you reside. Degiorgio expressly points out that data transmission over the Internet is subject to security vulnerabilities and that protection against access by third parties is not always guaranteed. Degiorgio is not responsible or liable for the security of your information as it is transmitted to Degiorgio over the Internet.

Data transfer / forwarding to third parties

Degiorgio has the right to transfer your data to affiliated companies, their own agents and third party service providers within or outside the country in which you live or from which the data was transferred, within the scope of the purpose for which it was collected, so that these third party service providers can use your data as Degiorgio may do. They are also required to respect your privacy. Your data will only be passed on to third parties if this is legally permissible or if you have given your consent or if Degiorgio is obliged to do so by law, government orders or a decision of a public authority or court.

Applicable law and other provisions

Certain areas of this website may contain additional terms or conditions. Should these contradict the data protection and terms of use, the additional regulations take precedence.

Should individual provisions of these data protection and terms of use be invalid, the validity of the remaining provisions shall not be restricted. The invalid provision shall be replaced by a provision that comes as close as possible to the meaning of the invalid clause.

The use of this website and these terms of use are subject exclusively to Swiss substantive law - to the exclusion of state treaty norms. The courts of Lucerne, Switzerland shall have exclusive jurisdiction over any disputes arising in connection with this website.
