Purpose of processing
We will only use your personal data in the course of our activities and/or to fulfill our contractual, regulatory or legal obligations and to protect our own interests and those of our employees. Personal data will be used by us in particular for the following reasons:
Disclosure to third parties
Within ARTIS partner AG, those persons have access to your data who need it to fulfill our contractual, regulatory or legal obligations.
In order to provide you with the services you have requested and for the above purposes, your personal data may be disclosed to third parties.
We also take reasonable steps to ensure that our contracted third parties are bound by confidentiality and data protection obligations with respect to the protection of your personal data. These third parties may include:
To the extent necessary or due to our regulatory or legal obligations, your personal data may also be disclosed to other third parties (e.g. auditors, supervisory organization, FINMA, authorities and courts).
During the processing of personal data described above, in individual cases, personal data may be transferred to a country other than Switzerland, namely to countries in the European Economic Area («EEA») or the European Union («EU»), which have an adequate level of data protection set by the EU.
We use reasonable efforts to protect your personal information from misuse, loss, alteration, unauthorized access, modification or disclosure. Access to and use of personal information is regulated internally to prevent misuse or unlawful disclosure of such information. We have limited access rights and use security procedures such as firewalls, anti-virus technology and password login to prevent unauthorized access.
We retain records containing personal information and store information only for as long as is necessary to provide you with continued service or to fulfill any of our contractual obligations, and longer if required by law. When personal data is no longer required by us, it will be destroyed or deleted to the extent that this is technically possible and legally permissible and can be ensured with a reasonable effort.
Right to information and access
It is possible to contact us by email or telephone to request access to your personal information. However, please note that we must verify your identity before we can grant you access to the information. There may be legal reasons that prevent us from granting access, particularly if doing so would compromise the privacy of others or breach confidentiality. If we deny access, we will notify you in writing of the reasons and give you an opportunity to appeal. There may be a cost for accessing this information, but there is no cost for making requests or corrections to your personal information.
Correction of personal data
We strive to keep your personal data accurate, complete, current and relevant. To this end, we ask that you notify us if your information changes. If you believe that the personal data we hold about you is inaccurate, incomplete or misleading, or if you wish it to be deleted, you can write to us at any time to request that it be amended or deleted. Our internal contact person for data protection issues will be happy to address your request.
Likewise, you have the right to restrict processing and may revoke your granted consent to processing at any time.
