Welcome to Swisscows
(1) The following conditions apply to the use of the website Swisscows – hereinafter called „Swisscows“ or „website“. For the use of the website it is important that you as a user accept the following provisions. Registration and use of the website are free of charge.
If you have any questions about our website, you can contact us at:
When you create a user account, you are fully responsible for the information you provide when you register or make changes to your account. We have no access to your profile and are not responsible for its content. You agree to take all necessary measures to maintain the confidentiality of your password.
If you want to keep your data and content, it is your responsibility to organize the transfer of your data and content before deleting your account.
The Swisscows guideline for protecting the privacy of its users meets a very high level of requirements. Swisscows does NOT collect any data, neither when using the search engine nor when using the user account.
Registration is limited to email address and password, so that no personal data is stored. Processing information requests and registering for certain services, such as Swisscows VPN, however, may require the provision of personal data such as surname, first name, contact details and email address. This data is collected and processed by Swisscows in its capacity as the one responsible in accordance with the regulations for the protection of personal data and our data protection declaration.
The user account is the exception. When you register with Swisscows, a CSRF (Cross-Site Request Forgery) cookie is used for security reasons to protect your account from attacks.
Another cookie is used for the authorization session (user ID) so that the user does not have to log in again on every Swisscows page that he opens.
If you use a Swisscows service or send us emails, text messages or other messages from your computer or mobile device, you are communicating with us electronically. We will communicate with you electronically in various ways, e.g. via e-mails, text messages or the publication of electronic messages or other communication on our website or as part of other Swisscows services. For contractual purposes, you agree to receive electronic communication from us and that all consents, notifications, publications and other communication that we communicate to you electronically do not require a written form, unless mandatory legal regulations require another form of communication.
All texts, images and other information and data published on our website are - unless otherwise stated - subject to the copyright of our site. Any form of reproduction and/or modification may only be carried out with our written approval. Otherwise we reserve the right to take legal action against this violation. All costs that are caused by a violation of the law by a user will be charged to the user.
