Data protection declaration

According to article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution and the country’s data protection legislation (Federal Act on Data Protection/FADP), every individual has the right to privacy and to protection against misuse of their personal data. We comply with these provisions.

We regard the personal data that we receive as being strictly confidential and we do not divulge or sell it to third parties. We strive to protect our databases as far as possible against unauthorized access, viruses, data loss, misuse and forgery, in close collaboration with our hosting provider.

When accessing our website the following data are stored in log files: IP address, date, time, browser request and the general information that is transmitted to the operating system, i.e. browser. The user data forms the basis for anonymous statistical evaluations and serves to ensure safety.


When visiting our website, cookies (small text files) are downloaded onto the user’s computer. Visitors agree to accept cookies when accessing our website. Cookies are used to make internet sites more user-friendly and secure, as well as analysing the use for statistical evaluation and improvement of the website.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. («Google»). Google Analytics uses cookies to analyse website traffic. The data that is gathered includes the IP address of the user’s device, date and time of the website visits, the web pages visited, and the browser and operating system that is used. The information stemming from cookies is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The user’s IP address is anonymised by shortening before being stored or processed. This prevents any conclusions being drawn about a person. Google can hand the collected information to a third party when required by law, or third parties may process the data on behalf of Google. A user has the possibility to disable all cookies (see cookies section), or only stop the use of Google Analytics. To do this, the user has to install Google’s browser add-on (not available for mobile devices).
Alternatively, the user can set an opt-out cookie that prevents Google Analytics registering any future visits to this website. The opt-out only functions in the browser in which it was activated by the user. Should the user delete this cookie, he/she must reset the opt-out cookie at the next visit.

Browser add-on to deactivate Google Analytics (for all websites):

Set opt-out cookie: opt-out

We use videos from the online platform YouTube (belongs to Google) on our website. When accessing a video, YouTube sets cookies that contain information about the actual page and the videos viewed. The information is used to compile video statistics. If the user is logged in under his/her own YouTube account, the information can be assigned to that account. To prevent this happening, the user must log out of YouTube on the browser beforehand. Further data processing operations can be triggered when the user opens a video that sets up a connection to the Google DoubleClick network. CAMION TRANSPORT LTD cannot control this.

Google Maps

We use Google Maps on our website to display location plans. When viewing the maps or using the route planner, Google can capture data about the use of its offer. By viewing the maps, the site visitor agrees to the capture, processing and use of his/her data by Google, its representatives and third parties.

The Facebook «Share» feature

We offer the Facebook share feature on some of our webpages. By integrating the share feature with the Shariff solution, contact with the Facebook servers in the USA is only established when the button is activated. Facebook then inserts cookies in the user’s browser and obtains information about his/her IP address, the website that the user is currently visiting and additional data that is linked to the open website. If the user shares the page, the information that Facebook collects can be added to his/her user profile.
