General Remarks

The Scort Foundation (hereafter “Scort”) respects the terms of the Swiss Federal Data Protection Act (DPA) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Safe handling, protection of data and particularly confidentiality, integrity and transparency are extremely important to Scort.

Scort runs both technical and organisational safety measures to protect all data against incidental or intentional damage, manipulation, loss, destruction or against unauthorised access. The safety measures are continuously adapted to the technical development.


Purpose of Website and Social Media

The purpose of Scort’s website is to inform interested people about the Foundation itself and its activities. At the same time the website facilitates contact with Scort, particularly with the form “Request for Cooperation”.



Scort works with cookies to ease the use of its website. Cookies are files which are being stored on the hard disc of your computer to simplify the navigation and interaction of the website. The insertion of cookies prevents a continuous input of data with every new access.

You have the opportunity to express your opinions on the profiles of Scort’s social network platforms i.e. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Vimeo, and Youtube.

Scort is an independent, politically and religiously neutral Foundation and therefore dissociates itself from any offending expression and comments on our profiles of social-network-platforms.

Comments or expressions which are aimed to discriminate persons or groups for example because of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or affiliation to a social grouping, will not be tolerated and will be deleted immediately.

Transparency of Donations

Transparency is very important to Scort. The conscientious use of donations is therefore a high priority. The donations are distributed very efficiently and purposefully. Scort informs on a regular basis via detailed annual reports about the Foundation and its activities.


Access Data

Through every access to the website of Scort, the webserver (location: Basel) registers a log-file where impersonal data (e.g. time, date, origin, duration, etc.) is stored. This information is then transferred into statistical data through the web analysis-programme Google Analytics and other similar technologies. The statistics are used for internal evaluation of the website and affiliated social media platforms. With this information Scort can continuously adapt the website and affiliated social media platforms to the need of the users. It is neither with the log-file nor with access statistics possible for Scort to trace back who has been on the website. Users remain anonymous at all times.

By using the Scort website you agree to the process of the raised data through Google Analytics and other similar technologies in the described way and manner and for the specified purpose.
