DATA PROTECTION NOTICE
New data protection legislation came into force across the EU on 25 May 2018. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) strengthens and unifies data protection for individuals within the EU. It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU. Historically, Swiss data protection legislation has been closely tied to EU regulations. Therefore, the Swiss National Park website and online shop fall under the GDPR.
About personal data
Personal data means any information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person. Your first and last names, your landline phone number, and/or your physical, e-mail or IP addresses constitute personal data.
How we collect, process and use your personal data
We are very protective of your personal data, and only collect, store and process this data for our own use, for example to deal with your order via our online shop.
In compliance with the new regulation, we will only– and securely – export your personal details to third parties for the purpose of services delivered on our behalf (see below, Google Analytics https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en and Facebook https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/update?ref=old_policy).
Your personal data and marketing
We will never use your personal data for marketing purposes.
About cookies Cookies are files that are sent by web servers to web browsers, and which may then be sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies can be used by web servers to identify and track you as you navigate different pages on a website, and to identify you when you return to a website.
Cookies may be either "persistent" or "session" cookies. A session cookie will expire at the end of your session, when you close the web browser. By contrast, persistent cookies consist of text files sent by a web server to a web browser. Unless you delete them before their expiry date, persistent cookies will be stored by the browser and remain valid until their set expiry date.

The cookies we use
Most of the cookies on nationalpark.ch are session cookies. They are automatically deleted from your hard drive when you close your browser. For example, session cookies avoid having to show you this notice each time you visit a new page on our website.
We also use persistent cookies that remain on your hard drive, and automatically recall your previous choices when you return to our website. Our persistent cookies have a set expiry date of between 1 month and 10 years. Unless you delete them sooner, they will remain on your hard drive until their pre-set expiry date.

nationalpark.ch uses Google Analytics, a service offered by Google Inc. https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en Google Analytics mainly uses first-party cookies to report on user interactions on our website in order to help us understand how it is used.
