Data protection policy

Collection, processing and use of personal data 

Personal data is information about specific or identifiable natural persons. This includes, for example, your e-mail or IP address.


We use cookies for a better user experience on our website. If you block our cookies, please note that our website will only be available with limited functionality.

What are cookies? 

Cookies are small files that are stored on your data carrier and save certain settings and data for exchange with our website via your browser. Basically, a distinction is made between two different types of cookies, so-called session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and permanent cookies, which are stored on your data carrier for a longer period of time or indefinitely. This storage makes it easier for you to use the site, for example by saving certain entries you make so that you do not have to keep repeating them.

Which cookies does use? 

Most of the cookies we use are automatically deleted from your hard drive at the end of the browser session (end of session) (therefore also session cookies). Session cookies are needed, for example, so that the cookie notice is not displayed to you again on every page. In addition, we also use cookies that remain on your hard drive. When you visit us again, it is then automatically recognised that you have already been with us. These permanent cookies (lifetime 1 month to 10 years) are stored on your hard drive and delete themselves after the specified time.

What data is stored in the cookies?

Only pseudonymous data is stored in the cookies used by the Diocese of Chur. When the cookie is activated, it is assigned an identification number and your personal data is not assigned to this identification number. Your name, IP address or similar data that would allow the cookie to be directly assigned to you are not stored in the cookie.
