Personal data collected by Wenger Plattner will be collected and processed in accordance with the data protection regulations applicable in Switzerland, in particular the provisions of the Federal Act on Data Protection (FADP), the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the principles set out below.
The following privacy statement gives information about the nature, scope and purpose of personal data collection via this website, the processing of this personal data and the relevant rights of users. Personal data means any information which relates to an identified or identifiable person.
II. COLLECTION AND PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA
We primarily process personal data that we receive directly within the framework of our client relationships. This personal information is of course subject to the obligation of professional secrecy. It is also possible that we will receive and/or collect data from business partners or other persons involved. We also extract data from sources which are available to the public, such as public registers, the press or generally on the internet. To some extent we also receive data from authorities, (arbitration) courts and other third parties, such as contractual and business partners or counterparties.
In addition, we process data generated during the use of our website (www.wenger-plattner.ch) and/or the data supplied in this context (such as IP address, device specifications and settings, etc.) Data is processed for the purposes of analysing internet traffic on our website and to improve its functionality. When you use the website, personal data may also be collected using cookies and Google Analytics.
Personal data will also be collected on registering for the newsletter and when you contact us by email. On registering for the newsletter, you must provide your contact details (first name, last name and email address). You can unsubscribe from the newsletter and have your data deleted from the relevant list at any time.
III. PURPOSE OF THE DATA PROCESSING AND LEGAL BASIS
We process the personal data collected if and insofar as this is necessary to operate the website, for operational security, to analyse use of this website, to send out the newsletter and to fulfil our statutory obligations. We also process the data collected to safeguard our handling of cases and/or for the purpose of implementing contracts and for invoicing as well as communication purposes or for sending out invitations to client events or workshops.
B) Tracking and other technologies associated with use of our website
We also use Google Analytics on our website. This is a third-party service which we can use to measure and evaluate use of the website (non-personal). Permanent cookies set by the service provider are also used for this purpose. The service provider does not receive any personal data from us (and does not keep any IP addresses) but can track your use of the website, combine this information with data from other websites which you have visited and which are also tracked by the service provider, and use this knowledge for its own purposes (e.g. managing advertising). Google Analytics sends us information about the number of visitors to the website, where visitors log in from and how long they stay on our website. If you have registered with the service provider itself, the service provider also knows you. Processing of your personal data by the service provider will then be the responsibility of the service provider in accordance with its data protection provisions. The service provider informs us only about how our website is being used (no personal data about you).
V. Social plugins
When a website is accessed on which one or more plugins are integrated, the browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of the social networks. The button is sent by the social networks direct to the browser and is then embedded in the website. As a result of integrating the buttons, the social networks receive the information that the website in question has been accessed. If the user is logged in to the social networks at the time of his visit, the social networks can assign the visit to the user’s account. If the button is clicked, the information in question is sent direct from the browser to the social network and stored there. The purpose and extent of data collection, further processing and use of the data by the social networks together with the user’s rights in this respect and the configuration options for protection of the user’s privacy can be found in the data protection provisions of the respective social networks. The user can prevent the social networks from collecting data about the websites visited by logging out before visiting the website.
VI. DISCLOSURE TO THIRD PARTIES AND CROSS-BORDER DATA TRANSFER
Wenger Plattner is authorised to commission data processors on a mandate basis at home and abroad to process personal data and to inform them of the personal data collected by Wenger Plattner for this purpose, provided that they contractually undertake to process the personal data only on behalf and for the purposes of Wenger Plattner and to comply with this data protection declaration and the applicable data protection law. These are especially auxiliary staff (such as lawyers and law firms and experts consulted at home and abroad) and other business partners.
Furthermore, subject to any statutory duty or official order or court order, the personal data will be disclosed to third parties only with your consent.
VII. DATA SECURITY
We take reasonable technical and organisational measures to protect clients’ personal data, particularly to protect it from unauthorised access by third parties and misuse. These security measures will be adapted to the current state of the art.
VIII. STORAGE PERIOD
Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the personal data collected by us will be stored only for as long as this is necessary for the processing of the contractual relationship or for the purposes otherwise pursued with the processing and/or there is a statutory duty to retain it or an overriding private or public interest in doing so. As soon as the personal data collected by us is no longer necessary for the above purposes, it will in principle and if possible be deleted or anonymised.
IX. RIGHTS OF THE DATA SUBJECT

You also have the right to have certain personal data released for transfer to another location (so-called data portability)..
Furthermore, consent to the collection and processing of data can be revoked at any time with effect for the future.
