Responsibility for the processing of personal data:
School Street 37
We point out if there are other persons responsible for the processing of personal data in individual cases.
2. terms and legal bases
Personal data is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person. A data subject is a person about whom we process personal data.
Processing includes any handling of personal data, regardless of the means and procedures used, such as querying, matching, adapting, archiving, storing, reading out, disclosing, procuring, recording, collecting, deleting, disclosing, arranging, organizing, storing, modifying, disseminating, linking, destroying and using personal data.
2.2 Legal basis
We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law such as, in particular, the Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection (Data Protection Act, DPA) and the Ordinance on Data Protection (Data Protection Ordinance, DPA).
3. nature, scope and purpose
We process those personal data that are necessary to carry out our activities and operations in a durable, user-friendly, safe and reliable manner. Such personal data may fall into the categories of inventory and contact data, browser and device data, content data, meta or marginal data and usage data, location data, sales data, and contract and payment data, in particular.
We process personal data for the period of time that is necessary for the respective purpose(s) or required by law. Personal data whose processing is no longer necessary is anonymized or deleted.
We may have personal data processed by third parties. We may process personal data jointly with third parties or transfer it to third parties. Such third parties are, in particular, specialized providers whose services we use. We also ensure data protection with such third parties.
As a matter of principle, we only process personal data with the consent of the persons concerned. If and to the extent that processing is permitted for other legal reasons, we may refrain from obtaining consent. For example, we may process personal data without consent in order to fulfill a contract, to comply with legal obligations or to protect overriding interests.
In this context, we process in particular information that a data subject voluntarily provides to us when contacting – for example, by letter, e-mail, instant messaging, contact form, social media or telephone – or when registering for a user account. We may store such information, for example, in an address book or with comparable tools. If we receive data about other persons, the transmitting persons are obliged to ensure data protection towards these persons as well as to ensure the accuracy of this personal data.
We also process personal data that we receive from third parties, obtain from publicly available sources or collect in the course of our activities and operations, if and to the extent that such processing is permitted for legal reasons.
4. personal data abroad
We process personal data in Switzerland as a matter of principle. However, we may also disclose or export personal data to other countries, in particular in order to process it or have it processed there.
We may disclose personal data to all states and territories on Earth as well as elsewhere in the universe, provided that the law there guarantees adequate data protection in accordance with a decision of the Swiss Federal Council.
We may disclose personal data to countries whose laws do not ensure adequate data protection, provided that adequate data protection is ensured for other reasons. Appropriate data protection can be ensured, for example, through corresponding contractual agreements, on the basis of standard data protection clauses, or with other suitable guarantees. Exceptionally, we may export personal data to countries without adequate or appropriate data protection if the special data protection requirements are met, for example, the express consent of the data subjects or a direct connection with the conclusion or performance of a contract. We will be happy to provide data subjects with information about any guarantees or provide a copy of any guarantees upon request.
5. rights of data subjects
5.1 Data protection law claims
We grant data subjects all claims in accordance with applicable data protection law. Data subjects have the following rights in particular:
- Information: Data subjects may request information as to whether we process personal data about them and, if so, what personal data is involved. Data subjects are also provided with the information necessary to assert their claims under data protection law and to ensure transparency. This includes the processed personal data as such, but also, among other things, information on the purpose of processing, the duration of storage, any disclosure or export of data to other countries and the origin of the personal data.
- Correction and restriction: Data subjects can have incorrect personal data corrected, incomplete data completed and the processing of their data restricted.
- Deletion and objection: Data subjects can have personal data deleted (“right to be forgotten”) and object to the processing of their data with effect for the future.
- Data release and data transfer: Data subjects may request the surrender of personal data or the transfer of their data to another data controller.
We may suspend, limit or deny the exercise of data subjects’ rights to the extent permitted by law. We can point out to data subjects any requirements they may have to meet in order to exercise their rights under data protection law. For example, we may refuse to provide information in whole or in part on the grounds of trade secrets or the protection of others. For example, we may also refuse to delete personal data in whole or in part with reference to statutory retention obligations.
We may exceptionally provide for costs for the exercise of the rights. We inform affected persons in advance about any costs.
We are required to take reasonable steps to identify data subjects who request information or assert other rights. Affected persons are obliged to cooperate.
5.2 Right to complain
Data subjects have the right to enforce their data protection claims through legal channels or to lodge a complaint with a competent data protection supervisory authority.
The data protection supervisory authority for private data controllers and federal bodies in Switzerland is the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC).
6. data security
We take suitable technical and organizational measures to ensure data security that is appropriate to the respective risk. However, we cannot guarantee absolute data security.
Access to our website is via transport encryption (SSL / TLS, in particular with the Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure, abbreviated HTTPS). Most browsers mark transport encryption with a padlock in the address bar.
Our digital communications – like all digital communications – are subject to mass surveillance without cause or suspicion and to other surveillance by security authorities in Switzerland, the rest of Europe, the United States of America (USA) and other countries. We cannot directly influence the corresponding processing of personal data by secret services, police agencies and other security authorities.
