Data protection

Icon Media observes the provisions of Swiss data protection legislation when collecting and processing personal data. In all areas of its web site, comprehensive technical tools and organizational measures are used to protect against unauthorized access, manipulations and data loss.

Accessing public Icon Media web pages

Generally, the Icon Media website can be accessed without requiring users to identify themselves. For statistical purposes and to optimize our services, Icon Media may collect and process the technical information that your access device and browser automatically provide us with. This includes the following information:

  • Date and time of access to the website
  • Type, version and language settings of the browser and operating system used
  • Display size of the screen used
  • IP address of the end device or the Internet gateway

When you view our websites, the Icon Media server may also send cookies to your device. These cookies help to make your visits to our websites more convenient. For example, if you have selected a language setting, you will not have to repeat it. The cookies do not enable the website visitor to be linked to a specific individual.

When you access third-party websites via links on, you leave the sphere of influence of Icon Media and this notice therefore no longer applies.

Communication by e-mail

If you use one of the e-mail addresses published by us to make contact, you expressly authorize us to respond to you by the same means either to the sender address or to an address you indicate. E-mails are sent over the Internet in unencrypted form and may be accessible, readable and open to manipulation by others. E-mail is therefore not a suitable means for sending confidential information.

Use of e-mail addresses

Icon Media only uses your e-mail address for its own purposes. Icon Media does not pass on any e-mail addresses to third parties.
