By “personal data”, we mean all information relating to a specific or identifiable natural or legal person. Processing includes any handling of personal data, regardless of the means and procedures used, in particular the acquisition, storage, use, alteration, disclosure, archiving or destruction of personal data.

Data processing agreement (privacy policy)

Nagra’s website respects the privacy of its users. Data collected during access is limited to the minimum necessary to operate the website. Personal data is only used for processing orders.

E-​mail addresses or personal information received by us are neither sold nor passed on in any other way and are protected against unauthorised use by technical and organisational measures. Data which no longer serve their intended purpose are periodically discarded or deleted upon request (principal: “single-​use address”).

Nagra is committed to protecting your privacy in accordance with applicable legislation, in particular business secrets and data protection laws.

Please note that e-​mail communication is partly conducted openly and unencrypted. It is therefore not possible to rule out that data sent in this way may be viewed by third parties and that efforts to contact Nagra may be traced.

The Swiss Data Protection Act (DSG) applies. Reference is made to any additionally applicable laws based on the EU General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO).

We use cookies on our website (session cookies as well as temporary and permanent cookies), which are small files that are automatically created by your browser and stored on your terminal device (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit our site. A cookie does not necessarily mean that we are able to identify you.

One purpose of cookies is to record the frequency of use, the number of users and behaviour patterns on our website, to increase the security of website use and to design our range of information in a user-​friendly manner. As soon as you leave the website, these cookies are automatically deleted.

In addition, we also use temporary cookies to optimise user-​friendliness. These are stored on your terminal device for a certain specified time period. When you visit our website again to make use of our services, we automatically recognise that you have visited our website before and which entries and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter these again.

You can configure your browser settings so that no cookies are stored on your computer. Completely deactivating cookies may result in you not being able to use all functions of our website.

By continuing to use our website and/or agreeing to this data protection statement, you give your consent to our use of cookies set to collect, store and use personal user data, even when it extends beyond the end of the browser session.

Google Analytics and Google Ads

Our website uses the web analysis service Google Analytics of Google LLC, USA. Google Analytics uses cookies (cf. “Cookies”), which enable Google to analyse the use of the content of our website in the USA, including IP addresses. Please note that on this website Google Analytics was extended by the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” to ensure an anonymous recording of IP addresses (so-​called IP masking). When anonymisation is activated, Google shortens IP addresses within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the European Economic Area Treaty, so that no conclusions can be drawn on your identity. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google complies with the data protection provisions of the “Swiss-​USA Privacy Shield” agreement and thus provides an adequate level of data protection. Google uses the collected information to analyse the use of our website and compile corresponding reports and other services for us. More information is available at, particularly with regard to the possibility to deactivate Google Analytics at

Google Ads Conversion Tracking also uses cookies to measure performance. These are stored on your computer up to 30 days after you clicked on a Google Ads advertisement. The information is limited to the overall number of users that first clicked on an ad and were then directed to a page equipped with a conversion tracking tag. However, they will not receive any information on the personal identity of the users. You may refuse the installation of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser, however, please note that in doing so, you might not be able to use the entire range of functions on this website.

By using this website, you consent to the processing of your personal data by Google in the manner and for the purposes described above.


To incorporate videos, we use, among others, the provider YouTube. YouTube is operated by YouTube LLC, USA, and it is represented by Google LLC, USA.

On some of our websites, we use videos incorporated by the provider YouTube. When you access a page with such a video, a connection is established to the YouTube servers, thus passing on information on the websites you accessed to the YouTube server. If you are logged in as a member of YouTube, YouTube will assign this information to your personal user account. When you use the plug-​in, e.g. by clicking on the start button of a video, this information is also assigned to your user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your YouTube user account as well as other user accounts belonging to YouTube LLC and Google LLC and deleting the companies’ corresponding cookies before accessing our website.

For information on the purpose and extent of data collection and of the further processing and use of the data by YouTube as well as your rights and settings options for the protection of your privacy in this regard, please refer to the YouTube data protection information:

SSL encryption (HTTPS protocol)

For the optimal protection of your transmitted data, the website operators use SSL encryption. You can recognise such encrypted connections by the prefix “https://” in the page link in your browser’s address bar. Unencrypted pages are labelled “http://”.

Due to SSL encryption, none of the data that you transmit to this website – for example when making enquiries or logging in – can be read by third parties.

Contact form

When using our contact form, we may receive identification data (e.g. title, name), contact data (e.g. e-​mail, telephone number, address) and messages. We use this information to fulfil a contract or for pre-​contractual measures, e.g. to contact you, to process a specific concern or to inform you about our services.

Nagra expressly excludes any liability (including negligence) to the extent permitted by law, for any damage or consequential damages that might arise from accessing or using our website and or any websites linked to it.
