If we transfer data to a country without adequate legal data protection, we ensure an adequate level of protection as provided by law by using appropriate contracts (namely on the basis of the so-called standard contractual clauses of the European Commission) or rely on the legal exceptions of consent, contract performance, the establishment, exercise or enforcement of legal claims, overriding public interests, published personal data or because it is necessary to protect the integrity of the data subjects. Nevertheless, we would like to point out that data transmitted abroad is no longer protected by Swiss law and foreign laws as well as official orders may require the transfer of this data to authorities and other third parties.
6. How long do we store your data?
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected or to comply with legal (e.g. legal retention periods), or contractual requirements.

Within the scope of the data protection law applicable to you and insofar as provided therein, you have the right to information, correction, deletion, the right to restrict data processing and otherwise to object to our data processing as well as to the release of certain personal data for the purpose of transfer to another location (so-called data portability). Please note, however, that we reserve the right to enforce the restrictions provided for by law, for example if we are obliged to retain or process certain data, have an overriding interest in doing so (insofar as we are entitled to rely on this) or require it for the assertion of claims. If you incur costs, we will inform you in advance.
Where we process your data on the basis of your consent, you can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. However, this does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.
The exercise of such rights generally requires that you positively prove your identity (e.g. by means of a copy of your ID or passport, if your identity is otherwise not clear or cannot be verified). To exercise your rights, you may contact us at the addresses given in Section 2 of this data protection declaration (by post or e-mail).
In addition, every data subject has the right to enforce his or her claims in court or to lodge a complaint with the competent data protection authority. The competent data protection authority in Switzerland is the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (http://www.edoeb.admin.ch).
8. Data security
We take appropriate security measures of a technical and organizational nature to safeguard the security of your personal data, namely to protect it against unauthorized or unlawful processing and to protect it against the risk of loss, accidental alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access. Like all companies, however, we cannot exclude the possibility of data breaches with absolute certainty, because certain residual risks are unavoidable. As part of our security measures, we use firewalls, logging and encryption in particular, have authorization concepts and have implemented other protective measures to ensure the most complete possible protection of personal data.
