Data protection

Welcome to the website of my psychotherapeutic practice. The following data protection declaration applies to the use of my website and the services offered on it, unless otherwise agreed in a specific contract. This data protection declaration informs you about the collection of personal data during your visit to this website. By using this website, you agree to this privacy policy.

My psychotherapeutic practice attaches great importance to data protection. Due to the legal obligations (professional secrecy according to Art. 321 StGB, data protection law and other federal and cantonal decrees) there is already a high level of legal protection. Your personal data are collected and processed in compliance with the applicable data protection laws and requirements.

My psychotherapeutic practice only offers its services in Switzerland and is aimed only at people living in Switzerland.

Collection of general data and information

A series of general data and information is recorded each time the website is accessed by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the server's log files. The following can be recorded: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that use an accessing system on our website can be controlled, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that serves to avert risks in the event of attacks on our IT infrastructure.

This data and information is required to (1) correctly display the content of my website, (2) optimize the content of our website, (3) ensure the long-term functionality of our IT infrastructure and the technology of my website, and (4) im Provide law enforcement with the necessary information in the event of a cyber attack. My psychotherapeutic practice can also statistically evaluate this data and information with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in the IT infrastructure. The data and information collected in this way is only processed for the purposes just mentioned and stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

Links to other websites

This website may contain links to websites of other providers. My psychotherapeutic practice has no influence on these websites, their content, offers or availability or the data protection declarations and provisions applicable there. It therefore rejects any liability.

Cookies and other services 

My psychotherapeutic practice can use cookies on the website in order to be able to offer the best possible service and specific information. Cookies contain a so-called cookie ID, a unique identifier of the cookie, which websites and servers assign to a specific internet browser. A specific internet browser can be recognized and identified using this unique cookie ID. The purpose of this recognition is to offer the users of this website an optimal visitor experience and to improve the website design.

Such information about the use of this website (including your IP address) can e.g. in the case of Google Analytics transferred to servers abroad and stored there. Google Analytics uses this information e.g. to compile reports on visitor website activity. Google may also transfer this data to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Google, like other cookie providers, have their own privacy policies and regulations. The use and processing of data stored via cookies from third-party companies such as Google are outside the area of responsibility of psychotherapeutic practice. It therefore rejects any liability.

My psychotherapeutic practice can use other third-party services to offer their content and services such as Embed videos or contributions into the website. Appropriate integration always presupposes that these third-party providers can record and process the IP address and other information of visitors to this website.

In the settings of your browser you can block the use of cookies, request a warning before creating a cookie or delete cookies afterwards. Please note that if cookies are blocked or subsequently deleted, this website may not be able to be used to its full extent, or the display may be impaired.

In particular, there is a right to information, correction and deletion (if the data no longer has to be kept for legal reasons). The exercise of such rights generally requires that you provide clear proof of your identity (e.g. through a copy of your ID where your identity is otherwise not clear or cannot be verified). To assert your rights, please contact the psychotherapeutic practice. I am available to you for further information.


My psychotherapeutic practice can change this data protection declaration at any time without prior notice. The current version published on our website applies.
