3. Legal basis and purposes

4. Data retention

We retain personal data for so long as it is needed for the purposes for which it was collected and in line with legal and regulatory requirements or contractual arrangements. After this period, we delete or fully anonymize your personal data.

5. Data recipients

We engage third-party companies ("Service Providers") to facilitate the operation of our Services, assist in analysing the usage of the Services, or perform necessary services, such as payment and the provision of IT services. These third parties have access to your personal data only to the extent necessary to perform these tasks.

Type(s) of Service Providers who might access your personal data:

6. Data transfers

We and/or our Service Providers may transfer your personal data to and process it in the following countries:

  • EU and EEA
  • USA

We may use Service Providers partly located in so-called third countries (outside the European Union or the European Economic Area or Switzerland) or process personal data there, i.e., countries whose level of data protection does not correspond to that of the EU or Switzerland.

We safeguard your personal data per our contractual obligations and applicable data protection legislation when transferring data abroad.

Such safeguards may include:

  • The transfer to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection according to the Federal Council, as well as to countries where there is an adequacy decision by the European Commission in place
  • Applying standard data protection model clauses, binding corporate rules or other standard contractual obligations that provide appropriate data protection

If a third country transfer takes place and there is no adequacy decision or appropriate safeguards, it is possible and there is a risk that authorities in the third country (e.g. intelligence services) can gain access to the transferred data and that the enforceability of your data subject's rights cannot be guaranteed.

7. Data disclosure

We may disclose your personal data in the good faith belief that such action is necessary:

  • To comply with a legal obligation (i.e., if required by law or in response to valid requests by public authorities, such as a court or government agency)
  • To protect the security of our Services and defend our rights or property
  • To prevent or investigate possible wrongdoing in connection with us

8. Data security

We take reasonable technical and organisational security measures that we deem appropriate to protect your stored data against manipulation, loss, or unauthorised third-party access. Our security measures are continually adapted to technological developments.

We also take internal data privacy very seriously. Our employees and the Service Providers that we engage are required to maintain secrecy and comply with applicable data protection legislation. In addition, they are granted access to personal data only insofar as this is necessary for them to carry out their respective tasks or mandate.

The security of your personal data is important to us but remember that no method of transmission over the internet or electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. We recommend using antivirus software, a firewall, and other similar software to safeguard your system.

  • Right to portability: You have the right to request that we transmit your personal data to another data controller in a standard format such as Excel, if this is data which you have provided to us and if we are processing it on the legal basis of your consent or to perform our contractual obligations.

We maintain online presences on social networks to, among other things, communicate with customers and prospective customers and to provide information about our products and Services. If you have an account on the same network, it is possible that your information and media made available there may be seen by us, for example, when we access your profile. In addition, the social network may allow us to contact you. As soon as we transfer personal data into our own system, we are responsible for this independently. This is then done to carry out pre-contractual measures and to fulfil a contract.

Below is a list of social networks on which we operate an online presence:

We send newsletters and other notifications by email and through other communication channels, and may deliver them with the help of third parties.

In principle, you must expressly consent to receive newsletters and other notifications from us, unless this is permitted for other legal reasons. We use "double opt-in" for any consent in the case of e-mails, i.e., you will receive an e-mail with a web link that you must click to confirm, so that no misuse by unauthorized third parties can take place. We may log such consents including Internet Protocol (IP) address, date and time.

Newsletters and other notifications may contain web links or tracking pixels that record whether an individual newsletter or notification has been opened and which web links were clicked (performance measurement). Such web links and tracking pixels record the use of newsletters and other notifications. We use this statistical recording of usage, including success and reach measurement, in order to be able to offer newsletters and other notifications effectively and in a user-friendly manner, as well as permanently, securely and reliably, based on the reading habits of the recipients.

You can unsubscribe from newsletters and other notifications at any time and thereby object in particular to the aforementioned collection of usage. You can do so by contacting us directly or following the link included in the footer of each newsletter we send you.
