In the context of our contractual services, we process the data of our customers according to the Swiss federal data protection regulations (Federal Act on Data Protection, FADP) and the EU GDPR.
This involves the processing of master data (e.g., customer master data such as names and addresses), contact data (e.g., email addresses, telephone numbers), content data (e.g., text input, etc.), contract data (e.g., object of the contract, term), payment information (e.g., bank details, payment history), usage and metadata (e.g., in the context of evaluation and performance assessment of marketing measures). Those affected include our customers, prospects and their customers, users, website visitors or employees as well as third parties. The purpose of the processing is the provision of contractual services, billing and our customer service. The legal basis of the processing results from Art. 6 Para. 1(b) of the GDPR (Contractual Services) and Art. 6 Para. 1(f) of the GDPR (Analysis, Statistics, Optimization, Security Measures). We process data that is necessary for the establishment and fulfillment of the contractual services and indicate the necessity of this information. Disclosure to third parties only occurs if required by an order. When processing the data provided to us within the context of an order, we act in accordance with the instructions of the client as well as with the statutory requirements for order processing according to Art. 28 of the GDPR and process the data for no other purposes than those related to the order.
We delete the data after expiry of statutory warranty and similar obligations. The requirement to store the data is checked at irregular intervals. In case of statutory archiving obligations, deletion takes place after their expiration. In case of data disclosed to us by the client in the context of an order, we delete the data according to the specifications of the order, generally after the completion of the order.
We process the data of our customers, clients and prospects (uniformly referred to as “customers”) according to the Swiss federal data protection regulations (Federal Act on Data Protection, FADP) and Art. 6 Para. 1(b) of the EU GDPR in order to provide you with our contractual or pre-contractual services. The processed data and the nature, scope, purpose and necessity of its processing are determined by the underlying order. This includes customer master data (name, address, etc.), as well as contact information (email address, phone number, etc.), contract data (content of the contract, fees, terms, information about the conveyed companies/ insurers/ services) and payment information (commissions, payment history, etc.). We may also process information about the characteristics and circumstances of persons or their property if this is part of the object of the contract. This can include information about personal circumstances as well as movable or immovable property.
As part of the contract, it may also be necessary for us to process special categories of data in accordance with Art. 9 Para. 1 of the GDPR, in particular information regarding a person’s health. For this, we obtain the explicit consent of the customer where required according to Art. 6 Para. 1(a) and Art. 9 Para. 2(a) of the GDPR.
Where required for the fulfillment of the contract or by law, we disclose or transmit customer information in the context of insurance coverage inquiries, the conclusion and settlement of contracts, data to providers of the ordered services/ properties, insurers, reinsurers, brokerage pools, technical service providers, other service providers such as cooperating associations, financial service providers, credit institutions and capital investment companies as well as social insurance agencies, tax authorities, tax consultants, legal advisors, auditors, insurance ombudsmen and the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) or the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin). Furthermore, we may hire subcontractors such as sub-brokers. We obtain the consent of the customer where required for the disclosure/ transmission of this data (which may be the case with special categories of data according to Art. 9 of the GDPR, for example).
Deletion of the data occurs after expiration of statutory warranty and similar obligations, whereby the necessity of the storage of the data is checked at irregular intervals. Otherwise, the statutory retention obligations apply. In case of statutory archiving obligations, deletion takes place after their expiration.
We process the data of our contractual partners and prospects as well as other customers, clients, principals and contractual partners (uniformly referred to as “contractual partners”) according to the Swiss federal data protection regulations (Federal Act on Data Protection, FADP) and Art. 6 Para. 1(b) of the GDPR to provide you with our contractual or pre-contractual services. The processed data and the nature, scope, purpose and necessity of its processing are determined by the underlying contractual relationship.
The processed data includes master data of our contractual partners (e.g., names and addresses), contact information (e.g., email addresses and phone numbers), contract data (e.g., services obtained, content of the contract, contractual communication, names of contacts) and payment information (e.g., bank details, payment history).
We generally do not process special categories of personal data unless these are part of commissioned or contractual processing.
We process data that is necessary for the establishment and fulfillment of the contractual services and indicate the necessity of this information insofar as it is not evident to the contractual partners. Disclosure to third parties only occurs if required within the context of a contract. When processing the data provided to us within the context of an order, we act in accordance with the instructions of the client as well as with the statutory requirements.
As part of the use of our online services, we may store the IP address and the time of each user action. The storage is based on our legitimate interests as well as the interests of users in the protection against misuse and other unauthorized use. Transfer of this data to third parties does not take place unless it is necessary to pursue our claims according to Art. 6 Para. 1(f) of the GDPR or there is a legal obligation according to Art. 6 Para. 1(c) of the GDPR.
Deletion of the data occurs when the data is no longer required for the fulfillment of contractual or statutory obligations as well as for possible warranty and similar obligations, whereby the necessity of the storage of the data is checked at irregular intervals. Otherwise, the statutory retention obligations apply.
