The protection of your personal data is very important to us. In the following, we explain which of your data we collect and use for which purpose: Every time a user accesses an Internet page of our website and every time a file is retrieved, data about this process is stored in a log file. These files are not personal, so we cannot trace which user has requested which data. In detail, the following data record is stored for each retrieval: - Name of the retrieved file - Date and time of the retrieval - Amount of data transferred - Message as to whether the retrieval was successful. Personal user profiles are not created. It is not possible to draw conclusions about your person. Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us in order to optimise our Internet presence and the technology behind it. It is not passed on to third parties.


Personal data provided by the user when visiting our website is treated confidentially. If the user sends us an electronic message (e-mail) and/or fills in the online forms on our website and sends them to us electronically, we store and process the data and information provided there in accordance with the respective purpose intended by the user or accepted by us, e.g. to send the requested documents or information or to check the application documents sent. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties outside the company. However, as a precautionary measure, we would like to point out that when transmitting your data via the Internet, there is a possibility that it may be accessed or changed by unauthorised persons. The user declares his/her consent to the above-mentioned storage and use of data as well as the use of cookies. If you have any further questions about data protection in connection with this website or the data stored about you, or if

you wish to object to the use of your data by us, you can contact us via the contact page.


This website uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that are permanently or temporarily stored in your computer when you visit this website. The purpose of the cookies is in particular to analyse the use of this website for statistical evaluation as well as for continuous improvements. You can deactivate cookies in full or in part at any time in the settings of your browser. If you deactivate cookies, you may no longer be able to use all the functions of this website.


Processing of data (customer and contract data)

We collect, process and use personal data only to the extent that it is necessary for the establishment, content or amendment of the legal relationship (inventory data). This is done on the basis of Swiss legislation, which allows us to process data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures. We collect, process and use personal data about the use of our Internet pages (usage data) only insofar as this is necessary to enable the user to use the service or to bill the user.

The collected customer data is deleted after completion of the order or termination of the business relationship. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.


SSL encryption

To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption procedures (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.


Contact form

If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.


The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore based exclusively on your consent. You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.


The data you entered in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.


Deletion or blocking of data

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as provided for by the storage periods stipulated by the legislator. After the respective purpose has ceased to exist or these periods have expired, the corresponding data is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.


Your rights to information, correction, blocking, deletion and objection

You have the right to obtain information about your personal data stored by us at any time. You also have the right to have your personal data corrected, blocked or, apart from the mandatory data storage for business purposes, deleted. Please contact our museum director for this purpose. You can find the contact details here.

To ensure that a blocking of data can be taken into account at any time, this data must be kept in a blocking file for control purposes. You can also request the deletion of data, unless there is a legal archiving obligation. If such an obligation exists, we will block your data upon request.

You can make changes or revoke consent by notifying us accordingly with effect for the future.





This site uses the mapping service Google Maps via an API. The provider is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

To ensure data protection on our website, Google Maps is deactivated when you first enter our website. A direct connection to Google's servers is only established when you independently activate Google Maps (consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). This prevents your data from being transferred to Google when you first enter the site.

After activation, Google Maps will store your IP address. This is then usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transfer after activating Google Maps.

You can find more information on the handling of user data in Google's privacy policy:




We host our website with Wix. As with any connection to a web server, our web hosting provider's server logs and stores certain technical data. This data includes the IP address and the operating system of your device, the data, the access time, the type of browser and the browser request including the origin of the request (referrer). This is necessary for technical reasons in order to provide you with our website. cyon uses technical and organisational measures to protect this data from unauthorised access and does not pass it on to third parties. Insofar as we process personal data in the process, we do so because of our interest in providing you with the best possible user experience and in ensuring the security and stability of our systems.


Changes to our privacy policy

We reserve the right to amend this privacy policy from time to time so that it always complies with current legal requirements or in order to implement changes to our services in the privacy policy, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection statement will then apply to your next visit.
