Instead, the tool rather triggers other tags that in turn may collect data under certain circumstances (see above in this context).

For completeness sake, we would like to point out to users who are residence or domiciled in Switzerland that monitoring measures are in place in the USA by US authorities, which generally allow the storage of all personal data of all persons whose data has been transferred from Switzerland to the USA. This is done without differentiation, restriction or exception on the basis of the objective pursued and without any objective criterion making it possible to limit the access and subsequent use of the data by the US authorities to very specific and strictly limited purposes that can justify the interference linked both to the access and to the use of these data. Furthermore, we would like to point out that there are no legal remedies available in the USA for data subjects from Switzerland that would allow them to gain access to the data concerning them and to obtain its correction or deletion, or that there is no effective judicial legal protection against the general access rights of US authorities. We explicitly emphasise this legal and factual situation to the person concerned in order to make an appropriately informed decision to consent to the use of their data.
