You can also access our website anonymously and without registering. When you visit our website, like many other website operators, we automatically collect information from your browser using web server technology (known as „protocol or log-data“). This log data includes your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, and version, Internet service provider information, the pages of our website that you viewed, the time and date of your visit, and the length of time you spent on these pages, as well as other statistical data.
This information is collected and processed to technically enable the use of our websites and the products and services offered on them (establishing a connection), ensuring and improving the security and stability of our systems and offers, analyzing and optimizing them using Brixel services, such as by improving our products, marketing measures, or customer-specific advertising. There is as much identification of you as there is a link between the automatically collected and perhaps already stored personal information. You are excluded from this rule if you have registered with Brixel and created a user account.
We may request personally identifying information from you when you use our products and services so that we can contact or identify you. For personalized services, access-restricted sections, registering for our newsletter, or processing inquiries and managing subscriptions, you may be required to register online with Brixel and establish a user account.

We use the data collected in this manner to process and administer our digital offers and services, to justify the content design and processing, and in particular, to fulfill our contractual obligations and your ordered subscriptions, to check the entered data for plausibility, completeness, and accuracy, and for accurate billing in the case of paid services.
Your e-mail address acts as a digital mailing address for us to send you the newsletter you have registered and marketing material from and about Brixel that may be of interest to you. You may unsubscribe from these and other messages from us at any time by following the instructions for unsubscribing (Opt-out) included in every e-mail we send.
Brixel is permitted to use and distribute your data for personalized advertising and informational purposes.

Brixel is permitted to outsource the execution of the advertising mentioned above tactics. We can also share this information with third parties (see the following, Section 4).
Brixel may transfer your data to its subsidiaries or affiliated third-party companies that assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, supporting the execution of the contract or the support of our website or its products and their integrations to evaluate, improve, and tailor the offers and services to your needs, for customer service, or to personalize and optimize the information and advertising content.
In general, data will only be transmitted in a pseudonymous or anonymous form, so you cannot be identified based on the transmitted data. In addition, we carefully choose our partners and only collaborate with reputable third parties that agree to treat your data confidentially and under existing data protection regulations.
Moreover, we only share data with Brixel subsidiaries or business partners if and to the extent necessary for the performance of their responsibilities and the processing of the contract. For example, to valuation companies for determining the property’s market value or to banks and financial institutions for payment processing. Your information will be used just for the execution of the transaction and not for any other reason. If necessary for the purposes mentioned earlier, the data may also be transmitted overseas (see the following, Section 5).
Your personal information will not be sold, rented, or exchanged in any other way.
We will also share your information when you have expressly authorized it or when we believe disclosure is necessary to comply with the law, enforce our policies, or protect our rights or the rights of others, including our contractual rights, property, or security.
Finally, personal information may be sold or otherwise transferred to third parties in the case of a sale, merger, or another restructuring of Brixel or individual components of our business.
Brixel may transfer your data to foreign subsidiaries or affiliated third-party companies to improve and tailor their offers and services to meet your needs, to fulfill their contractual obligations and owed services, or to enhance data security, provided and to the extent that this is required for the purposes outlined in these guidelines.
Brixel assures that the relevant third parties maintain the confidentiality of your information and adhere to applicable data protection legislation. Suppose the level of data protection in a country where a Brixel partner company is located does not correspond to the level of data protection applicable in Switzerland and the EU. In that case, Brixel takes the following steps to ensure that the security of your personal data is always equivalent to that in Switzerland:
Cookies are accepted by default by the majority of popular Internet browsers. You may modify the Internet browser to prevent our website from setting cookies and display a notification whenever a cookie is used again. Thus, you can permanently oppose the setting of cookies in every instance. Additionally, cookies that have already been set can be erased through your Internet browser or other software tools. However, it is conceivable that www.brixel.ch will not function correctly without cookies and that the usage of our services will be impossible or severely restricted.
If you do not disable cookies, you consent to Brixel’s use on its sites.
These suppliers do not use your information for their advertising reasons but only as part of the contractual processing of your usage of Brixel’s offerings.
Brixel’s digital offerings can be networked with third-party functions and systems by integrating plug-ins from social networks such as Facebook, Google+, Twitter, and Instagram. Third parties such as Facebook Inc., Google Inc., Twitter Inc., and Instagram LLC supply the disputed services („Provider“).
If you visit one of our websites containing such a plug-in, your browser will establish a direct connection to the corresponding provider’s servers. The related supplier transmits the plug-content in’s straight to your browser and integrates it into the page. By combining the plug-ins, the providers learn that your browser has visited the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a profile for the related service or are not presently logged in. This information (including your IP address) is sent directly from your browser to the respective provider’s server, where it is kept.
If you are connected to one of the services, the providers can automatically associate your visit to our site with your Facebook, Google+, Twitter, or Instagram identity. Suppose you engage with the plug-ins, such as by clicking the „Like,“ „+1“, „Tweet,“ or „Instagram“ buttons. In that case, the associated information is delivered directly to a provider’s server and stored there. Additionally, the content is posted to your Twitter or Instagram account and visible to your connections there.
If you have an account with the applicable service provider, they may also be able to measure and assess your use of our digital offerings. Additional personal information, such as IP address, personal browser settings, and other factors, may be transferred to and kept on the server of the relevant service provider. When you use a social login service such as Facebook Connect, the provider may give us your stored personal information, such as your name, e-mail address, and profile image. Brixel has no control over how third parties utilize the personal information obtained in this manner. It assumes no obligation or responsibility in this regard.
Suppose you do not want Google, Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram to directly associate the information acquired by our website with your profile in the respective service. In that case, you must log out of the corresponding account before visiting our website. You can also prohibit plug-ins from loading entirely with browser extensions, such as B. with the script blocker „NoScript“: http://noscript.net.
Our digital solutions are also analyzed and reviewed using various technical tools, most of which third-party vendors like Google Analytics provide. These metrics can be personal or anonymous. The data gathered in this manner may be transferred to third parties for processing by the respective third-party suppliers of such technical systems or us.
Google Analytics is the most often employed analysis tool (details on this above, point 6). It is conceivable that the data acquired through this service will be transported to a Google server in the United States, where the IP addresses will be anonymized using IP anonymization to prevent any possible association with a specific user. Google will not combine the IP address given by your browser as part of Google Analytics with other Google data. This guarantees that this information cannot be used to identify you personally.
You can object to the collection and processing of data using Google Analytics by installing an opt-out cookie that prohibits Google Analytics from collecting your data in the future when you visit our website. The page https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout has additional information about the subject.
Our website may contain links to websites managed and operated by third parties. Brixel has no responsibility or liability for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party websites or services because it has no control over them. We strongly advise you to study the terms of service and privacy policies of any third-party website you visit. Despite this, we endeavor to preserve the integrity of our website and welcome any feedback regarding these sites.
Brixel only retains your information for as long as required by law or as necessary to fulfill the reason for which it was collected. In the case of analyses, we retain your information until its conclusion. Suppose we keep data based on a contractual relationship with you. In that case, we will do so for at least the duration of the relationship and, at most, as long as limitation periods for potential claims against us are in place or as long as statutory or contractual storage obligations exist.
When you enter, submit, or access your personal information, we implement a variety of organizational and technical safeguards to maintain its privacy. We give secure server access. All information is transmitted via secure channels and kept in a database accessible only to those with the proper credentials. The details will be kept strictly confidential. We were aligning and strengthening our security measures with technological advances. Brixel is not responsible for the loss of data or the access and use of the data by third parties.

The data disclosed and/or stored when accessing the website and utilizing the services are subject to the Swiss data protection legislation, particularly the Swiss Data Protection Act. To provide you and all Brixel users with the highest data protection possible, we have modified our policies to comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation’s (GDPR) requirements for more openness.
We only utilize the information you submitted or saved during registration and used our services to provide those services. You consent to process your data by a third party if it is necessary to provide the Services. In this instance, we verify that these third parties comply with the aforementioned legal foundations and these principles
We do not collect information from individuals under 16 years old. Our website, products, and services are all intended for users at least 16 years of age.
You have the right to exercise your data protection rights at any time and to obtain information about whether or not Brixel processes your personal data and which data it processes. You can also have your data, and its processing amended, halted, or deleted at any time by sending a written request along with the required identity documents to the following address:
Kindly note that even after your request to block or delete your data, we are required to store some of it following our legal or contractual storage obligations (e.g., for billing purposes) and will only block your data to the necessary amount. In addition, deleting your personal information may prevent you from obtaining or utilizing the services for which you have registered and paid. In some instances, you have the right to have your personal information transmitted in a standard format to you or a third party of your choosing.
You may object to processing your data for marketing and advertising purposes and transferring your data inside Brixel or your subsidiaries or partner firms per Section 3 by sending an e-mail to the address mentioned above. This concern does not entirely exclude the collection of personal data. The objection eliminates only the potential that obtained personal data cannot be processed anonymously for marketing purposes and sent to and analyzed by other companies for the same purpose. To completely exclude or at least reduce the acquisition of personal data, it is required to follow the steps specified in sections 6 and 8 concerning the deactivation of cookies and the prevention of data collection and processing by tracking and web analytics systems. However, this may restrict you from receiving or utilizing your previously obtained and used services.
You also have the right to file a complaint with the applicable supervisory authority regarding data processing. You can file a complaint with the supervisory authority in your place of residence, place of employment, or the location of the alleged violation.
By using our website and/or our applications, products, and services, you affirmatively consent to our website’s privacy policies.
The continued growth of our website and products and the implementation of new technologies may necessitate periodic updates to this data protection declaration. Any substantial changes to the data protection rules will be communicated to registered users by e-mail to the e-mail address provided during registration, by a corresponding notice when registering for the user account, or in another suitable method and format.
The most recent and applicable data protection guidelines are accessible and printable from our website. We also recommend that you routinely examine this Privacy Statement for any updates. If we decide to modify our privacy policies, we will update the date listed here.
