HEROS Helvetic Rolling Stock GmbH is subject to Swiss privacy laws and obeys them. Personal information, such as the name or company of the website visitor, will not be asked. This website has no ‘Like’ buttons from social networks, tracking pixels, or links to content of servers outside of Switzerland. Statistical analysis tools from companies which are not subject to Swiss privacy laws or use servers outside of Switzerland, are not used.

Piwik is active on our website as a statistics programme. Piwik analyses how many clicks are made in which countries, on which sites and which software (browser, operating system, language) is used. The IP addresses are anonymised so that exact tracking is not possible. The essential goal of our analysis is the technical and linguistic optimisation of our website in accordance with the needs of those who use it.

The statistics program Piwik uses cookies and JavaScript. If you do not want this data regarding your visit to be registered, you have four options to inform our Piwik installation of this:

  • Set your browser so that tracking is generally not accepted. Our website will query this setting and follow your preference. You can find the details on this setting at (No cookies will be used either in this case.)
  • Remove the tick mark below in the Piwik Options section by clicking on it with the mouse. (This version uses cookies.)
  • Install one of the standard do-not-track programs in your browser.
  • Disable JavaScript in your browser

The HEROS Helvetic Rolling Stock GmbH website is designed so that no registration is required to view it. You can also view this website without JavaScript. The function which automatically adjusts the website to the size of the window which you are using (responsive design) requires Java to function. Without Java, it will be displayed in a standard resolution, which may not offer the best convenience for the size of your monitor.
