Protection of data privacy

The use of this website is generally possible without the provision of personal data. Insofar as personal data (e.g. name, address or email addresses) is collected on our website, this takes place to the greatest possible extent on a voluntary basis. Some of this data will be passed on to third parties in accordance with this data protection declaration.

We would like to point out that the transmission of data via the Internet (e.g. when communicating by email) may involve gaps in security. It is not possible to protect such data completely against access by third parties.

FAIRMED complies with the data protection regulations, in particular the DPA (Federal Data Protection Act) as well as the regulations of ZEWO and the Swiss Fundraising Association.


Some of the website uses so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. The purpose of these cookies is to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer by your browser.

Most of the cookies that we use are so-called “session cookies”. These are deleted automatically after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit to one of our websites.

You can configure your browser so that you are informed when cookies are set and only allow cookies in individual cases, or to accept cookies for specific cases or generally exclude them and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed.

Hosting provider and server log files

The provider of this website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser sends to us automatically. These are:

These data cannot be assigned directly to specific individuals and is not merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of legitimate indications of illegal use.

Newsletter data

If you would like to receive the newsletter that is offered on the website, we need an email address from you as well as information that enables us to verify that you are the owner of the provided email address and that you agree to the receipt of the newsletter. We use this data exclusively for the dispatch of the requested information.

The granted consent to the storage of the data, the email address and their use for sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time, for example via the “unsubscribe” link provided in the newsletter.

The registration for our newsletter takes place via a double opt-in procedure, meaning that after registering you will receive an email asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary to prevent registration with someone else’s email address.

Registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to provide the registration process in accordance with the legal requirements. This includes the storing of the time of registration and confirmation as well as the IP address. The changes to your data stored by MailChimp are also recorded.

The statistical surveys also include a determination of whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and the links that are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is not our intention to observe individual users. Rather, the evaluations serve to enable us to identify the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to users’ interests.

Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. As a result, prior to transmission to the USA, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there only in exceptional cases.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services to the website operator with regard to website activity and internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
