Data Protection Statement
With this Data Protection Statement we describe how we collect and further process personal data. The term “personal data” in this Data Protection Statement shall mean any information that identifies, or could reasonably be used to identify any person. Definitions of the terms used (e.g. “personal data” or “processing”) can be found in Art. 4 GDPR.
We may amend this Data Protection Statement at any time without prior notice. The current version published on our website shall apply.
The “controller” of data processing as described in this data protection statement (i.e. the responsible person) is Angelika Varga, Route de Sion 15, CH-1971 Champlan. You can notify us of any data protection related concerns using the following contact details: email@example.com
We, the website operator or page provider, collect data on access to the website on the basis of our legitimate interest (see Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. GDPR) and store these as “server log files” on the server of the website. The following data is logged:
- visited website
- time of the access
- amount of data sent in bytes
- source/reference from which you came to the site
- used browser
- used operating system
- used IP address
The server log files are stored for a maximum of 7 days and then deleted. The data is stored for security reasons, e.g. to clarify cases of misuse. If data must be stored for reasons of proof, they are excluded from the deletion until the incident has been definitively clarified.
3. Collection and Processing of Personal Data
The website operator collects, uses and passes on your personal data only if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of data. Personal information is all information that is used to identify your person and which can be traced back to you – such as your name and email address.
You can also visit this website without providing any personal information. However, in order to improve our online service, we store your access data to this website (without personal reference). These access data include, for example, the file you requested or the name of your Internet service provider. Due to the anonymization of the data, conclusions about your person are not possible.
4. Purpose of Data Processing and Legal Grounds
We primarily use collected data in order to comply with our domestic and foreign legal obligations. In addition, in line with applicable law and where appropriate, we may process your personal data and personal data of third parties for the following purposes, which are in our (or, as the case may be, any third parties’) legitimate interest (see Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. GDPR), such as:
- providing and developing our products, services and websites;
- compliance with legal and regulatory obligations.
If you contact us as a website operator through the contact options offered, your details (first name, name, IP address, e-mail) will be stored so that they can be used to process and respond to your enquiry. Without your consent, this data will not be disclosed to third parties.
5. Cookies / Tracking
6. Duration of storage of personal data
We process and retain your personal data as long as required for the performance of our contractual obligation and compliance with legal obligations or other purposes pursued with the processing as well as beyond this duration in accordance with legal retention and documentation obligations. Personal data may be retained for the period during which claims can be asserted against us or insofar as we are otherwise legally obliged to do so (e.g., for evidence and documentation purposes). As soon as your personal data are no longer required for the above-mentioned purposes, they will be deleted or anonymized, to the extent possible.
7. Data Security
We have taken appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data from unauthorized access and misuse such as encryption of data carriers and transmissions through the coding system SSL (Secure Socket Layer). We point out, however, that the data transfer on the internet may have security gaps. A complete protection of the data from access by third parties is not possible. Furthermore, malfunctions, interruptions or failures cannot be excluded. The servers we use are regularly backed up carefully.
8. Your Rights
In accordance with and as far as provided by applicable law, you have the right to access, rectification and erasure of your personal data, the right to restriction of processing or to object to our data processing in addition to right to receive certain personal data for transfer to another controller (data portability). Please note, however, that we reserve the right to enforce statutory restrictions on our part, for example if we are obliged to retain or process certain data, have an overriding interest (insofar as we may invoke such interests) or need the data for asserting claims.
If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or if your data protection claims have otherwise been violated in a way, you can contact us or complain to the supervisory authority. The competent data protection authority in Switzerland is the is the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (http://www.edoeb.admin.ch).
