is responsible for the data procurement and processing described below.

Storage of the IP address

We store the IP address transmitted by your web browser strictly for the purpose of recognising, limiting and eliminating attacks on our websites for a period of seven days. After this period, we delete or anonymise the IP address.

Usage data

When you visit our websites, so-called usage data is temporarily stored as a log on our web server at our hosting partner for statistical purposes in order to improve the quality of our websites. This data record consists of

  • of the page from which the file was requested,
  • the name of the file,
  • the date and time of the query,
  • the amount of data transferred,
  • the access status (file transferred, file not found),
  • the description of the type of web browser used,
  • the IP address of the requesting computer, which is shortened so that a personal reference can no longer be established.

The aforementioned log data is only stored anonymously.


We use cookies on our websites. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your terminal device and can be read. A distinction is made between session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and permanent cookies, which are stored beyond the individual session. Cookies can contain data that make it possible to recognise the device used. In some cases, however, cookies only contain information on certain settings that cannot be related to a specific person. We use session cookies and permanent cookies on our websites. The data processing by the implemented cookies only takes place after your consent.

You can set your browser to inform you about the placement of cookies. This makes the use of cookies transparent for you. You can also delete cookies at any time via the corresponding browser setting and prevent the setting of new cookies. Please note that our websites may then not be displayed optimally and some functions may no longer be technically available.

Cookie Consent Management

hmmh uses a consent management service for the use of cookies on our website. Usercentrics GmbH is used as a processor on the hmmh website for the purpose of consent management.

There you can individually determine which use and which cookie you wish to consent to or reject. By clicking on the fingerprint button at the bottom left of our website, you can call up the cookie layer at any time and adjust your permissions. 

Disclosure of data to third parties

We disclose your data within the scope of order processing pursuant to Art. 9 DSG to service providers who support us in the operation of our websites and the associated processes.

We use the following service providers: Google Analytics, Google Ads, Google Tag Manager, SC-Networks, Softgarden, Zoom, YouTube, Usercentrics and our hosting partner.

Data disclosure abroad

In some cases, we transfer personal data to countries outside Switzerland. In each case, we have ensured an appropriate level of data protection. Personal data may only be disclosed if the principles of data disclosure pursuant to Art. 16 and 17 FADP are complied with. The countries to which personal data is disclosed and the associated data protection guarantees are as follows: 

  • Germany / European Union, there is a positive decision according to Art. 16 para. 1 FADP.

On our website you can enter personal data via a contact form. When you use the contact form, we obtain and store the data you enter in the input mask (e.g. surname, first name, e-mail address). We do not disclose this information to third parties.

We provide forms for the registration for events of hmmh and/or hmmh partners. We store the data you provide there (first name, last name, function, business e-mail address and your company) in our internal CRM system. The purpose of the processing is the generation of business contacts. Therefore, we also disclose your data to the respective partners involved. Access to your data within hmmh is restricted to our marketing and sales teams.


We use Matomo on our website, an open source, self-hosted software, to collect anonymous usage data to optimise our internet presence. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

Matomo generates reports for hmmh as website operator from the collected data. hmmh hosts Matomo on its own servers at our hosting service provider in Germany.

Matomo sets the following cookies (with the corresponding lifetime):

  • pk_id (unique visitor ID, up to 13 months)
  • _pk_ref (referrer initially used to visit the website, up to 6 months)

Google Ads

As an Ads customer, we also use Google Conversion Tracking, an analysis service from Google. Google Adwords sets two double-click cookies on your computer ("conversion cookie") if you have accessed our website via a Google ad. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages of ours and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognise that someone has clicked on the ad and thus been redirected to our site. Each AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked across AdWords customers' websites. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Ads customers who have opted in to conversion tracking. Ads clients learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that personally identifies users. If you do not wish to participate in the tracking procedure, you can also refuse the setting of a cookie required for this - for example, by means of a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies. You can also deactivate cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain "".


We embed videos on our websites that are not stored on our servers. To ensure that accessing our web pages with embedded videos does not automatically lead to content from the third-party provider being reloaded, we only display locally stored preview images of the videos in a first step. This does not provide the third-party provider with any information.

Only after a click on the preview image, the content of the third party provider is reloaded. This provides the third-party provider with the information that you have accessed our site as well as the usage data that is technically required in this context. In addition, the third-party provider is then able to implement tracking technologies. We have no influence on the further data processing by the third-party provider. By clicking on the preview image, you give us your consent to reload content from the third-party provider. Please note that the embedding of many videos leads to your data being processed outside of Switzerland.

hmmh Newsletter

On our website, we offer you the opportunity to subscribe to our newsletter, in which we inform you about our company's products and services. For this purpose, we only need your e-mail address and a few other voluntary details.

If you no longer wish to receive a newsletter in the future, you can unsubscribe at any time by clicking on the corresponding link at the end of each newsletter.

We use the product "Evalanche" from the operator SC-Networks GmbH to send our newsletters. There, we store the opening data (date/time, browser type, mail client type, mailing) for each newsletter, as well as the clicks on image and text links, so that we can tailor our information to you and provide it in the best possible way. For this purpose, we set cookies when you register and receive the newsletter, which are deleted after 24 months at the latest. This data is stored and evaluated centrally.

In order to protect your data from unwanted access as comprehensively as possible, we take technical and organisational measures. We use an encryption procedure on our pages.

We have concluded contracts with these providers in accordance with Art. 9 para. 1 lit. b DSG.
