2. Relevant Legal Bases
Relevant legal bases under the Swiss Data Protection Act: If you are located in Switzerland, we process your data based on the Federal Act on Data Protection (abbreviated "Swiss DPA"). Unlike the GDPR, the Swiss DPA generally does not require a legal basis to be named for the processing of personal data, and the processing of personal data is carried out in good faith, lawfully, and proportionately (Art. 6 para. 1 and 2 of the Swiss DPA). Furthermore, personal data is only obtained for a specific, recognizable purpose and processed only in a manner compatible with that purpose (Art. 6 para. 3 of the Swiss DPA).
3. Security Measures
We implement appropriate technical and organizational measures in accordance with legal requirements, taking into account the state of the art, implementation costs, the nature, scope, circumstances, and purposes of processing, as well as the varying likelihood and severity of the threat to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk. These measures include, in particular, ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data by controlling physical and electronic access to the data, as well as access, input, disclosure, availability, and separation. Furthermore, we have established procedures to ensure the exercise of data subject rights, the deletion of data, and responses to data threats. We also consider the protection of personal data in the development or selection of hardware, software, and procedures, in accordance with the principle of data protection, through technical design and data protection-friendly default settings.
4. Transfer of Personal Data
In the course of our processing of personal data, it may be necessary to transfer or disclose them to other entities, companies, legally independent organizational units, or individuals. Recipients of this data may include, for example, IT service providers or providers of services and content integrated into a website. In such cases, we comply with legal requirements and, in particular, conclude appropriate contracts or agreements with the recipients of your data to protect your data.
5. International Data Transfers
Disclosure of personal data abroad: According to the Swiss DPA, we only disclose personal data abroad if an adequate level of protection for the data subjects is ensured (Art. 16 of the Swiss DPA). If the Federal Council has not established adequate protection, we implement alternative security measures. These may include international agreements, specific guarantees, data protection clauses in contracts, standard data protection clauses approved by the Federal Data Protection and Public Information Officer (FDPIC), or internal data protection regulations recognized in advance by the FDPIC or a competent data protection authority of another country. According to Art. 16 of the Swiss DPA, exceptions to the disclosure of data abroad may be permitted if certain conditions are met, including consent of the data subject, contract performance, public interest, protection of life or physical integrity, publicly disclosed data, or data from a legally provided register. These disclosures are always made in accordance with legal requirements.
6. General Information on Data Storage and Deletion
We delete personal data processed by us in accordance with legal requirements as soon as the underlying consent is revoked or there are no further legal bases for processing. This applies to cases where the original purpose of processing ceases to exist or the data is no longer needed. Exceptions to this rule exist if legal obligations or special interests require longer retention or archiving of the data. In particular, data that must be retained for commercial or tax reasons or whose storage is necessary for legal action or to protect the rights of other natural or legal persons must be archived accordingly. Our privacy notices contain additional information on the retention and deletion of data that specifically apply to certain processing activities. If multiple statements are made regarding the retention period or deletion deadlines of a data, the longest deadline always applies. If a deadline does not explicitly begin on a certain date and is at least one year, it automatically starts at the end of the calendar year in which the triggering event occurred. In the case of ongoing contractual relationships in which data is stored, the triggering event is the effective date of termination or other termination of the legal relationship. Data that is retained not for the originally intended purpose but due to legal requirements or other reasons will only be processed for the reasons that justify their retention.
