The following terms and conditions are applicable for access to, and use of, the website www.vzug.com:

Website content
V-ZUG Ltd accepts no responsibility for the actuality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Claims for damages against V-ZUG Ltd relating to material or immaterial damages caused by the use or non-use of the information provided, or by the use of incorrect or incomplete information, are fundamentally excluded, unless deliberate or gross negligence on the part of V-ZUG Ltd can be demonstrated.
V-ZUG Ltd specifically provides no guarantee that the content offered on www.vzug.com is free of viruses, worms, Trojans or other malware. To the extent permitted by law, no liability is accepted for direct, indirect or consequential damage suffered by users or third parties as a result of using this website.

Privacy
V-ZUG Ltd undertakes to comply with the provisions of Swiss privacy law when processing personal data. The personal data transmitted by the user is not passed on to third parties and is only used for the purpose stated in each case. Since online communication is known to be neither secure nor confidential, users of the website at www.vzug.com are requested not to send any confidential information V-ZUG Ltd by email or contact form. Any and all information received by V-ZUG Ltd in this way is considered non-confidential and treated accordingly.

This website uses technology provided by PIWIK (http://piwik.org) and Google Analytics, a Google Inc. (‘Google’) web analytics service, to collect and store data for marketing and optimisation purposes. Third-party providers, including Google, place adverts on websites on the internet. Third-party providers, including Google, use stored cookies to place adverts based on a user’s previous visits to this website. A user profile may be created using a pseudonym from this data, and cookies may be used to do this. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the cache of the site visitor’s internet browser. The cookies enable the recognition of the internet browser. The purpose of cookies is mainly to analyse the use of this website for statistical evaluation as well as for continuous improvements. You can set your browser to partly or completely disable cookies at any time. To disable the tracking web analytics (opt-out), a corresponding add-on can be downloaded from the Google website and installed on any device and browser (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout). If you disable cookies, you will no longer have access to all the functions on this website. Data collected with the etracker technology shall not be used to personally identify the user, nor shall it be combined with personal information associated with the bearer of the pseudonym without the explicit consent of the person concerned. Data collection and storage may be rescinded with future effect at any time.

Google remarketing 
This website uses the Google remarketing function to advertise V-ZUG products and services. This function is used to display interest-related advertisements from V-ZUG to visitors to the website as part of the Google advertising network. The website visitor’s browser saves cookies, which are text files that are saved on your computer and enable user recognition, if the user visits websites that are part of the Google advertising network. All data is collected anonymously so that it is not possible to identify specific individuals. If you do not want the Google remarketing function, you can disable this altogether by adjusting the corresponding settings at http://www.google.com/settings/ads

References and links
In the case of direct and indirect links to third party websites that are outside the sphere of responsibility of V-ZUG Ltd, responsibility would only be accepted in the event that V-ZUG Ltd had knowledge of the content and it had the technical means to, and it would be reasonable to expect it to, prevent its use in the event of illegal content.
V-ZUG Ltd hereby expressly declares that, at the time the links were set up, no illegal content was identifiable on the pages to be linked. The author has no influence whatsoever over the present and future layout, content or authorship of the linked pages. Consequently, V-ZUG Ltd hereby expressly distances itself from all content on all linked pages that was modified after the link was set up. The owner of the linked page bears sole responsibility for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content, and especially for damage suffered as a result of the use or non-use of information provided in this way, and not the party that merely references the respective publication by means of links.

Notes on embedded third-party content
Content from third parties, such as YouTube videos, Google Maps map data, RSS feeds or images from other web pages, may be embedded within this website. This always requires that the providers of this content (‘third-party providers’) detect the user’s IP address, since without the IP address, they could not send content to the user's browser. The IP address is therefore necessary to display this content. We strive to only use this type of content from providers that only use the IP address to deliver content. However, we have no control over whether third-party providers store the IP address for statistical purposes, for example. If we have knowledge of this, we will inform the users.

Intellectual property
Everything that you read, hear or see on www.vzug.com is protected by copyright and may only be used in the scope defined here. Apart from this permitted usage, no further rights to copyright-protected materials are transferred - by either V-ZUG Ltd or third parties.
The complete or partial reproduction, the electronic or conventional transmission, modification or use of content for public or commercial purposes requires the written consent of V-ZUG Ltd. References/links to our pages similarly require the written consent of V-ZUG Ltd.
 
Social media buttons
V-ZUG web pages use the buttons of a variety of social media services. They can be recognised by terms such as ‘Twitter’, ‘Facebook’, ‘WhatsApp’, ‘LinkedIn’, ‘Follow’ or ‘Share’. Using these buttons, it is possible to share a post or a page with the relevant social media service or follow V-ZUG on the corresponding service. When a user visits a web page on this site that contains one of these buttons, their server establishes a direct connection to the service provider’s servers. The content of the buttons is sent by the social media service directly to the user’s browser. The provider (V-ZUG) therefore has no control over the amount of data that the social media service collects with the aid of this plug-in and therefore informs users about what is known. Insofar as is known, only the user’s IP address and the URL of the web page in question are sent where the button is present, but these are not used for purposes other than displaying the button.
Using Twitter as an example, further information on this can be found here: http://twitter.com/privacy

Rating of products and recipes
V-ZUG Ltd. reserves the right to delete any comments that it deems sexist, racist, or in violation of personal or other legal rights. No correspondence will be entered into regarding the exclusion of comments and ratings.
