Responsibility for the processing of personal data:
We would like to point out if there are other controllers for the processing of personal data in individual cases.
2. TERMS AND LEGAL BASIS
Personal data means any information relating 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, comparing, adapting, archiving, storing, reading, disclosing, obtaining, collecting, recording, deleting, disclosing, organising, storing, modifying, disseminating, linking, destroying and using personal data.
2.2 LEGAL BASIS
We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law, in particular the Federal Act on Data Protection (Data Protection Act, DPA) (Datenschutzgesetz, DSG) and the Ordinance on Data Protection (Data Protection Ordinance, DPO).
3. NATURE, SCOPE AND PURPOSE
We process the personal data required to carry out our activities and operations in a permanent, user-friendly, secure 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 as well as contract and payment data.
We process personal data for the duration required for the respective purpose(s) or as required by law. Personal data that no longer needs to be processed is anonymised 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, specialised providers whose services we use. We also guarantee data protection for such third parties.
We only process personal data with the consent of the data subjects. 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 fulfil 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 us - for example by post, email, instant messaging, contact form, social media or telephone - or when registering for a user account. We may store such information in an address book or with comparable tools, for example. If we receive data about other persons, the transmitting persons are obliged to guarantee data protection for these persons and to ensure the accuracy of this personal data.
We also process personal data that we receive from third parties, obtain from publicly accessible sources or collect in the course of our activities and operations, if and to the extent that such processing is permitted by law.
4. DATA SECURITY
We take suitable technical and organisational measures to ensure data security appropriate to the respective risk. In particular, our measures ensure the confidentiality, availability, traceability and integrity of the personal data processed.
Access to our online presence, in particular our website, takes place using transport encryption (SSL / TLS, in particular with the Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure, abbreviated to HTTPS). Most browsers indicate transport encryption with a small padlock in the address bar.
Our digital communication - like all digital communication in general - is subject to mass surveillance without cause or suspicion as well as 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 forces and other security authorities.
5. PERSONAL DATA ABROAD
We generally process personal data in Switzerland. 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 countries and territories on earth and elsewhere in the universe, provided that the local law guarantees adequate data protection in accordance with the decision of the Swiss Federal Council.
We may disclose personal data to countries whose laws do not guarantee adequate data protection, provided that adequate data protection is guaranteed for other reasons. Appropriate data protection can be guaranteed, for example, by 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 requirements under data protection law are met, for example the express consent of the data subjects or a direct connection with the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract. On request, we will be happy to provide data subjects with information about any guarantees or provide a copy of guarantees.
6. RIGHTS OF DATA SUBJECTS
6.1 CLAIMS UNDER DATA PROTECTION LAW
We grant data subjects all rights in accordance with the 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 also receive the information required to assert their data protection claims and ensure transparency. This includes the processed personal data as such, but also 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.
- Erasure and objection: Data subjects can have their personal data erased ("right to be forgotten") and object to the processing of their data with effect for the future.
- Data disclosure and data transfer: Data subjects may request the surrender of personal data or the transfer of their data to another controller.
We may defer, restrict or refuse the exercise of the rights of data subjects within the legally permissible framework. We may inform data subjects of any requirements that must be met in order to exercise their rights under data protection law. For example, we may refuse to provide information in whole or in part with reference to business secrets or the protection of other persons. For example, we may also refuse to delete personal data in whole or in part with reference to statutory retention obligations.
In exceptional cases, we may charge costs for the exercise of rights. We will inform data subjects of any costs in advance.
We are obliged to take appropriate measures to identify data subjects who request information or assert other rights. Data subjects are obliged to co-operate.
6.2 LEGAL PROTECTION
Data subjects have the right to enforce their data protection claims through legal action or to lodge a complaint with a competent data protection supervisory authority.
The data protection supervisory authority for complaints by data subjects against private controllers and federal bodies in Switzerland is the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC).
