Privacy statement

The Swiss Travel Fund (Reka) ensures that the collection and processing of personal data are conducted in accordance with the requirements of the Swiss data protection legislation. In all areas concerning online offers, the Reka employs comprehensive resources and takes organizational measures for the protection of unauthorized access, manipulations and data loss.

Information access to public Reka websites
In principle, a call-up for information on the public Reka websites needs no prior identification of the visitor. For statistical purposes and to optimize our offers, the Reka can record and process the technical data that access devices and the display programme automatically transmit. This concerns the following specifications:

  • Date and time of the website call-up
  • Browser type, version and language settings used and the operating system installed
  • Display size in the display equipment installed
  • IP-Address of the terminal or internet access
If you visit third parties’ websites via links on www.reka.ch you leave the Reka’s sphere of influence and thus the scope of application of this directive.

Communication of personal data in the public domain
By freely informing us of your personal data, e.g. through entries in a questionnaire or an order form, you consent to the storage and processing of your data. The data will be kept inaccessible to third parties by Reka. Use of the data collected will be restricted to absolutely necessary information and used and stored only for processing the required procedure. Passing on to persons or organizations other than Reka will not occur without your express consent.

Use of websites in the private sector
With Rekanet (www.rekanet.ch) the Reka offers its customers access to personal data (Reka Money Account, holiday bookings) and related services. Use of these services takes place in accordance with the terms and conditions published in Rekanet.

Communication via email
If you use one of our published email addresses to contact us, you explicitly authorize us to reply to you via the same canal to the sender address or another address provided. Emails will be sent unencrypted via the public internet and are possibly accessible, visible and easy to manipulate by third parties. Email communication is therefore not suitable for conveying confidential information. We accept no client orders via email.

Google Analytics and Google Remarketing
This website uses Google Analytics and Google Remarketing. These are Google Inc. ("Google") services. Google uses cookies, text files, which are stored on your computer and enable analysis of use of the website. Information on your use of this website generated by the cookie (including your IP address) is transferred to and stored in a Google-operated server in the USA. The IP address is subsequently shortened by the last three digits, and a clear allocation of the IP address is thus no longer possible. Google observes the US-Safe-Harbor Agreement’s data-protection provisions and is registered with the US Department of Commerce Safe Harbor Privacy Principles Program.

Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports concerning the website activities for the website operator and to provide further services related to internet and website usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if this is legally permitted or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.

Third-party vendors, including Google, serve advertisements on websites. Third-party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on a user’s prior visits to this website.

Google will not use your IP address in connection with other Google data. You may opt out of data collection and storage at any time with future effect. You can prevent the installation of cookies by Google by using a special setting on your browser software by accessing www.google.de/privacy/ads and clicking the ‘opt-out’ button. Alternatively, you may opt out of third-party ad servers’ use of cookies by accessing the deactivation page of the Network Advertising Initiative on http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp. You will find more advice regarding Google provisions on www.google.com/intl/de/privacy.

We must point out, however, that in this case you may not be able to use the full scope of the website’s functions. By using this site, you agree with the processing of data collected about you by Google in the manner described above and for the afore-mentioned purpose.
