At Swiss Transfusion SRC, we believe protecting your privacy is extremely important as a matter of principle. Thus, we see the need to comply with the legal provisions on data protection (Swiss and EU law) as self-evident.

Swiss Transfusion SRC wants you to be informed about how we use and handle your personal information and about the precautionary measures we take to ensure the confidentiality and security of your data.
Normally, you do not need to provide any personal data in order to use our website. If you use the site only to obtain information – i.e. as long as you do not register anywhere or use an online form to transmit data to us – the only data that we collect is that transmitted by your browser for technical purposes. This includes, for example, your IP address.
We do everything we can to ensure that any personal data (such as a name, address or email address) that our site does collect, is collected on a voluntary basis. We would not share such data with any third party without your express consent.
Our website uses Matomo, an open source web analytics tool (https://matomo.org), to collect and store data for marketing and optimisation purposes.
