Contract: To perform our contractual obligations or take steps linked to a contract with you. In particular:

We may send newsletters and other notifications by email and through other communication channels. We may have newsletters and other notifications sent by third parties or send them with the help of third parties.
In principle, you must expressly consent to the use of your e-mail address and other contact addresses, unless the use 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 need 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.

The Company may engage third party companies ("Service Providers") to facilitate the operation of the Website, assist in analyzing the usage of the Website, or perform Website and service-related services, such as payment and the provision of IT infrastructure services. These third parties have access to the user’s personal data only to the extent necessary to perform these tasks on behalf of the Company.
Type(s) of service providers who might access your personal data:

6 Data transfers
The Company and/or the Service Providers may transfer your personal data to and process it in the following countries:
- EU and EEA
We may use service providers who are partly located in so-called third countries (outside Switzerland) or process personal data there, i.e. countries whose level of data protection does not correspond to that of 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;
- 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 the Website and defend our rights or property;
- To prevent or investigate possible wrongdoing in connection with us;
- To defend ourselves against legal liability.
9 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 retain 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.

When visiting a page of our website with an embedded YouTube video, your browser connects to YouTube’s servers, which results in the transfer of your personal data – e.g. IP address, technical information about your browser type and operating system, activities you perform on our webpage – to YouTube, which may also be located in the USA, whether you have a YouTube account or not. Furthermore, YouTube is also able to track your behaviour once you start watching the videos.

14 Microsoft Teams
We use “Teams” to conduct online meetings. Teams is a software from Microsoft Ireland Operations Limited, South County Business Park, Leopardstown, Dublin 18, Ireland (“Microsoft”). The legal basis for the processing of data to conduct meetings via Teams is our legitimate interest in the effective and simple conduct of online meetings, discussion rounds and presentations. Also, we conduct this data processing on a contractual basis insofar as the meetings are held within the framework of existing contractual relationships with you. We are not responsible for any further data processing on the Teams product website, where the desktop software can be downloaded and the web app can be used.
During a meeting, participant details (e.g. display name, first name, last name, phone), metadata (e.g. meeting topic and description, IP address, time of participant’s last activity on Teams) chat or channel massages, microphone and video recording data and phone use may be processed under certain circumstances. You can deactivate the transmission via microphone and camera at any time via the corresponding settings. We only record meetings or log text data with your consent and prior notification. Microsoft stores and uses the metadata to enable us to analyse and report on the use of Teams. Microsoft may become aware of the above data as part of its contract with us. You can find more information in Microsoft’s data protection policy under https://privacy.microsoft.com/en-us/privacystatement
