Privacy policy

What we do

YourPower Kriminalprävention AG, Lagerplatz 6 in 8400 Winterthur operates the website (hereinafter referred to as "we"). On this website, visitors will find regular updates, documents and regulations on the subject of crime prevention.

The protection of your personal data is very important to us. In this data protection declaration, we inform you in a transparent and comprehensible manner about the data we collect via our website and how we handle it.

What we inform you about

  • What data is collected on,
  • Under what conditions we process your data and for what purpose, 
  • How long we keep your data,
  • When disclosure to third parties is permitted, 
  • How we process your data ("individual data processing operations"),
  • When and how you can object to data processing,
  • What rights you have and how you can assert them.


Personal data

Personal data (hereinafter also referred to as "personal data") is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, name, address, date of birth, e-mail address or telephone number. Data about personal preferences such as leisure activities or memberships also count as personal data. 

Personal data requiring special protection

Data on religious, ideological, political or trade union views or activities,

Data on health and, where applicable, information on administrative or criminal prosecutions and sanctions, as well as data on social assistance measures are considered to be particularly sensitive personal data. Where necessary and appropriate, we may request and process sensitive personal data. In this case, their processing is subject to stricter confidentiality.

Processing of personal data

Processing is any handling of personal data, regardless of the means and procedures used, in particular the acquisition, storage, retention, use, modification, disclosure, archiving, deletion or destruction of data.

Disclosure of personal data

This is the transmission or making available of personal data, such as publication or disclosure to a third party.

Collected data and origin

First and foremost, we process personal data that you provide to us or that we collect when operating our website. We may also receive personal data about you from third parties. This may include the following categories:

Personal master data (name, address, dates of birth, etc.),
Contact details (mobile phone number, e-mail address, etc.),
online identifiers (e.g. cookie identifier, IP addresses), 
location and traffic data.

Conditions for processing your data

We process your data in good faith and for the purposes set out in this privacy policy. In doing so, we ensure that processing is transparent and proportionate.

If, in exceptional cases, we are unable to comply with these principles, the data processing may still be lawful because there is a justification. The following are possible grounds for justification:

  • Your consent,
  • the execution of a contract or pre-contractual measures,
  • the fulfilment of legal requirements; our legitimate interests, provided that your interests
  • do not outweigh these.

You may be required to provide us with certain personal information to enable us to do business with you. Without such data, we will not normally be able to enter into a contract.

The website cannot normally be used either if certain information to secure data traffic, such as your IP address, is not disclosed. 

Withdrawal of consent

If you have given us consent to process your personal data for specific purposes, we will process your data within the scope of this consent unless we have another justification.

You can revoke your consent at any time by sending an e-mail to the address given in the imprint. Data processing that has already taken place is not affected by this.

Cases of passing on your data to third parties


We may need to use the services of third parties or affiliated companies and commission them to process your data (so-called order processors). Categories of recipients are namely:

  • Consulting companies (legal advice, taxes, etc.),
  • IT service providers (web hosting, support, cloud services, website design, etc.),

We ensure that these third parties comply with the requirements of data protection and treat your personal data confidentially.

We may also be obliged to disclose your personal data to authorities. 

Duration of the retention of your data

We only retain personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the individual purposes for which the data was collected.

Data that we store when you visit our website will be retained for twelve months. An exception is made for analytics and tracking data, which may be retained for longer.

We store contractual data for longer as we are required to do so by law. In particular, we must retain business communications, concluded contracts and accounting records for up to 10 years. As soon as we no longer need such data from you to perform the services, the data is blocked and we only use it for accounting and tax purposes.

Protection of your data

We will keep your data secure and take all reasonable steps to protect your data from loss, access, misuse or alteration.

Our contractors and employees who have access to your data are required to comply with data protection legislation. In some cases, it will be necessary for us to pass on your requests to companies affiliated with us. In these cases, too, your data will be treated confidentially. 

Within our website, we use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) procedure in conjunction with the highest encryption level supported by your browser.

Your rights

Right to information

You can request information about the data we have stored about you at any time. Please send your request for information together with proof of identity to [email protected].

You also have the right to receive your data in a commonly used file format if we process your data automatically and if:

  • you have given your consent for us to process that data; or
  • you have disclosed data in connection with the conclusion or performance of a contract.

We may restrict or refuse to provide information or data if this conflicts with our legal obligations, legitimate own or public interests or the interests of a third party.

The processing of your request is subject to the statutory processing period of 30 days. However, we may extend this period due to a high volume of enquiries, for legal or technical reasons or because we need more detailed information from you. You will be informed of the extension of the deadline in good time, at least in text form.

Deletion and correction

You can request the deletion or correction of your data at any time. We may refuse the request if legal regulations oblige us to retain the data for a longer period of time or unchanged, or if a permissible circumstance conflicts with your request.

Please note that the exercise of your rights may, under certain circumstances, conflict with contractual agreements and have corresponding effects on the implementation of the contract (e.g. premature termination of the contract or cost consequences).

Legal recourse

If you are affected by the processing of personal data, you have the right to enforce your rights in court or to file a report with the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority in Switzerland is the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner:

Provision of the websites and creation of log files

What information we receive and how we use it

When you visit, certain data is automatically stored on our servers or on servers of services that we have obtained and/or installed for system administration, statistical or backup purposes or for tracking purposes. 

These are:

  • the operating system of the computer used to access our website,
  • the date and time of access,
  • the website from which you visit one of our websites,

Why the data is collected

The temporary storage of log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the websites in order to guarantee their functionality and to ensure the security of our systems. The data is deleted at the end of each session.

Integration of content

We integrate the following content from the providers listed below on our website:

  • Location information via Google Maps,
  • videos from Youtube.

How this integration works

Location information

Your IP address is stored for the purpose of using the Google Maps functions. This is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA. We have no influence on this data transmission. For more information, see Google's privacy policy. 


The integration takes place via a plug-in. As soon as you visit one of our pages equipped with a plug-in, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. The servers are informed which of our sub-pages you have visited. For more information, see Google's privacy policy.

Right to integrate this content

Google Maps is used in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers and to make it easy to find the places we have indicated on the website. This is also in our legitimate interests.

We include content via Youtube in order to make our offer accessible to a wider audience. This is our legitimate interest.

Shared information with these providers

If you are logged into a user account of a provider, you would at most enable this provider to assign your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. We would like to point out that we have no knowledge of the specific content of the transmitted data or how it is used.

If you do not wish these providers to be able to assign your visit to our pages to your user account, please log out of your respective user account before using our website. 

Information shared with us

We would like to point out that we do not receive any knowledge of the content of the transmitted data as well as its use to the social media service.

Preventing data collection

If you do not want the social media service to be able to assign the visit to our pages to your user account, please log out of your respective user account before using our website.

You can also completely prevent the loading of the plug-ins with add-ons for your browser, for example with the script blocker "No-Script".
