Privacy Policy

Updated: September 01, 2023

Protecting your privacy is very important to us.


With the following statement, Flourish GmbH complies with our statutory duty to inform you about the storage of data, the type of data, the purpose and our identity. Based on Article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution and the data protection regulations of the New Federal Act on Data Protection (nFADP), put into effect on September 01, 2023, the EU Data Protection Basic Regulation DSGVO, and in accordance with General Data Protection Regulation GDPR (put into effect on May 25, 2018), every person is entitled to protection of their privacy and to protection against misuse of their personal data. We comply with these regulations and will treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.


The protection of your personal data during the collection, processing and use during your visit to our website is taken very seriously by us and the use of our website is usually possible without providing personal data. Personal data will be kept on a strictly confidential basis and will not be sold or passed on to third parties. Submitting personal data (e.g., your name, address, telephone number or email address) takes place, as far as possible, always on opt-in basis. If you have given us consent to process your personal data for particular purposes (for example when you subscribe to newsletters), we will process your personal data on the basis of this consent. You can revoke your consent at any time.

We reserve the right to modify this privacy policy at any time, so please review it frequently. Changes and clarifications will take effect
immediately upon their posting on the website. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here that it has been updated, so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we use and/or disclose it.


For external links to third-party content, we accept no liability despite careful content control, since we have not initiated the transmission of this information, have not selected or changed the addressee of the transmitted information or the transmitted information itself.


Herewith, we detail what information we collect during your visit to our website and how it is used:




a) Visiting the website: every time a visitor accesses our website, the internet browser used on the visitor’s device (computer, laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) automatically sends information to our website’s server. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called logfile (log file) on the server side (web hosting provider).


The following data will be collected without your intervention and stored until automated deletion:

  • if necessary, the IP address of the requesting computer, as well as the device ID or individual device identifier and device type,

  • name of the retrieved file and the amount of data transferred, as well as the date and time of retrieval,

  • requesting domain (i.e., the origin of your request, from which you came to our website),

  • the search words you used to find this website

  • the date

  • the time of day

  • description of the type of internet browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your terminal and the name of your access provider,

  • location information, including location data from your mobile device. Please note: on most mobile devices, you can control or disable the use of location services in the mobile device's settings menu.


Our legitimate interest is in accordance with Art. 6, Para. 1, Sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO as the collection of data is based on the following purposes:

  • ensuring a smooth connection setup and comfortable use of the website,

  • evaluation of system security and stability,

  • for further administrative purposes.


In no case do we use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about you.


b) When entering into a contractual relationship of any kind, we ask you for the following personal data:

  • data that personally identifies you, such as your name, email address and telephone number,

  • other personal data which we are legally obliged or authorised to collect and process and which we need for your authentication, identification or verification of the data we collect.


The mentioned data will be used to process the contractual relationship. The processing of data is based on Art. 6, Para. 1 DSGVO. The retention period is limited to the purpose of the contract and, if available, statutory and contractual retention requirements. In entering into a contractual relationship with us, you are invited to provide the personal data that is required to enter into and conduct a business relationship and fulfil the associated contractual obligations. Generally speaking, you are not legally required to provide data to us. However, without this data, we will usually be unable to conclude or process a contract with you (or the organisation or person you are representing). The website cannot be used either if certain details designed to secure data traffic (such as your IP address) are not disclosed. We point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g., communication via email) can have security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect data from access by third parties.

Deletion/Data Purge Process

Any Wix user and/or visitor can:

1. Submit a data access request


2. Permanently delete their data



A transfer of your data to third parties for purposes other than those listed below does not take place. We only pass on your data to third parties if:

  • you have given your express consent to this (Art. 6 (1) (1) (a) GDPR),

  • this is necessary for the settlement of contractual relationships with you (Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR),

  • there is a legal obligation to pass it on (Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR),

  • disclosure is required for asserting, exercising, or defending legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have a predominantly legitimate interest in not disclosing your data (Article 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR).


In these cases, however, the amount of data transmitted is limited to the minimum required.




On request, we can inform you whether and which clearly personal data about you are stored (Article 15 GDPR), in particular: the processing purposes, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data has been disclosed or will, the planned storage period, the right of rectification, deletion, limitation of processing or opposition, the existence of a right of appeal, the origin of data, if data was not collected from us, as well as the existence of automated decision-making including profiling.


You also have the right to correct any incorrectly collected personal data or to complete incomplete data collected (Art. 16 GDPR). Furthermore, you have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your data, provided that the legal conditions for doing so are met (Art. 18 GDPR). You have the right to receive the personal data relating to you in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request the transfer to another person responsible (Art. 20 GDPR). In addition, you are entitled to the so-called "right to be forgotten". You can request the deletion of your personal data from us, provided that the legal prerequisites exist (Art. 17 GDPR). Regardless of this, your personal data will be automatically deleted by us if the purpose of the data collection has been omitted or the data processing has been unlawful.


In accordance with Art. 7 (3) GDPR, you have the right to revoke your data at any time. As a result, we are no longer allowed to continue the data processing based on this consent for the future. You also have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time, provided that a right of objection is provided for by law. In the case of an effective revocation, your personal data will also be automatically deleted by us (Article 21 GDPR). If you would like to exercise your right of revocation or objection, it is sufficient to send an email to the email address listed at the end of this privacy policy as well as a copy of an official identification document (ID card, passport) as this is necessary to prevent any unauthorised persons gaining access to your data.

Every data subject is entitled to assert their claims in court or file a complaint with the competent data protection authority. The competent data protection authority in Switzerland is the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner:



The data collected will be stored by us as long as necessary for the performance of the contracts we have entered into, or if you have not exercised your right to cancellation, or your right to transfer data to another company.
