1. What is this Privacy Notice about?
In this Privacy Notice, we describe what we do with your data when you use https://axelebert.net, or one of its subdomains (collectively »website«), obtain services or products from us, interact with us in relation to a contract, communicate with us or otherwise deal with us. When appropriate we will provide a just-in-time notice to cover any additional processing activities not mentioned in this Privacy Notice. In addition, we may inform you about the processing of your data separately, for example in consent forms, terms and conditions, additional privacy notices, forms and other notices.
This Privacy Notice is aligned with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (»GDPR«), the Swiss Data Protection Act (»DPA«) and the revised Swiss Data Protection (»revDPA«. However, the application of these laws depends on each individual case.
2. Who is the controller for processing your data?
Responsible for processing under this Privacy Notice, unless otherwise communicated in individual cases:
5415 Nussbaumen AG
For each processing activity there are one or several parties that are responsible for ensuring that the processing complies with data protection law. This party is called the controller. It is responsible, for example, for responding to access requests (Section 11) or for ensuring that personal data is processed securely and not used in an unlawful manner.
Additional parties may be joint controllers for the processing set out in this Privacy Notice if they participate in determining the purpose or means of the processing. If you wish to receive information about the controllers for a specific processing activity, you are welcome to ask us as part of your access right (Section 11).
In Section 3, 7, 12, 13, you will find additional information about third parties with whom we work together and who are controllers for their processing. If you have any questions for these third parties or if you wish to exercise your rights, please contact them directly.
You may contact us for data protection concerns and to exercise your rights under Section 11 as follows:
5415 Nussbaumen AG
3. What data do we process?
We process various categories of data about you. The main categories of data are the following:
- Technical data: When you use our website or other online offerings, we collect the IP address of your terminal device and other technical data in order to ensure the functionality and security of these offerings. This data includes logs with records of the use of our systems. We generally keep technical data for 6 months. In order to ensure the functionality of these offerings, we may also assign an individual code to you or your terminal device (for example as a cookie, see Section 12). Technical data as such does not permit us to draw conclusions about your identity. However, technical data may be linked with other categories of data (and potentially with your person) in relation to user accounts, registrations, access controls or the performance of a contract.
- Communication data: When you are in contact with us via the contact form, by e-mail, telephone, or by letter or other means of communication, we collect the data exchanged between you and us, including your contact details and the metadata of the communication. If we have to determine your identity, we collect data to identify you (for example a copy of an ID document). We generally keep this data for 6 months from the last exchange between us. This period may be longer where required for evidentiary purposes, to comply with legal or contractual requirements, or for technical reasons. E-mails in personal mailboxes and written correspondence are generally kept for at least 6 months.
Much of the data set out in this Section 3 is provided to us by you (through forms, when you communicate with us, in relation to contracts, when you use the website, etc.). You are not obliged or required to disclose data to us except in certain cases, for example within the framework of binding health protection concepts (legal obligations). When using our website, the processing of technical data cannot be avoided.
4. For what purposes do we process your data?
We process your data for the purposes explained below. Further information is set out in Sections 12 and 13 for online services. These purposes and their objectives represent interests of us and potentially of third parties. You can find further information on the legal basis of our processing in Section 5.
- We process your data for purposes related to communication with you, in particular in relation to responding to inquiries and the exercise of your rights (Section 11) and to enable us to contact you in case of queries. For this purpose, we use in particular communication data. We keep this data to document our communication with you, for training purposes, for quality assurance and for follow-up inquiries.
- We may process your data for further purposes, for example as part of our internal processes and administration.
5. On what basis do we process your data?
Where we ask for your consent for certain processing activities, we will inform you separately about the relevant processing purposes. You may withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future by providing us written notice (by mail) or, unless otherwise noted or agreed, by sending an e-mail to us; see our contact details in Section 2. Once we have received notification of withdrawal of consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose(s) you consented to, unless we have another legal basis to do so. Withdrawal of consent does not, however, affect the lawfulness of the processing based on the consent prior to withdrawal.
Where we do not ask for consent for processing, the processing of your personal data relies on the requirement of the processing for initiating or performing a contract with you (or the entity you represent) or on our or a third-party legitimate interest in the particular processing, in particular in pursuing the purposes and objectives set out in Section 4 and in implementing related measures. Our legitimate interests also include compliance with legal regulations, insofar as this is not already recognized as a legal basis by applicable data protection law (for example in the case of the GDPR, the laws in the EEA and in the case of the DPA, Swiss law).
6. What applies in case of profiling and automated individual decisions?
We do not use automatic evaluation or »profiling« based on your data (Section 3).
7. With whom do we share your data?
In relation to our contracts, the website, our services and products, our legal obligations or otherwise with protecting our legitimate interests and the other purposes set out in Section 4, we may disclose your personal data to third parties, in particular to the following categories of recipients:
- Hosting provider: Hetzner Online GmbH, Industriestr. 25, 91710 Gunzenhausen, Germany. We have signed a data processing agreement with the hoster. This ensures that personal data of our website visitors is only processed according to our instructions and in compliance with the applicable data protection law.
- Authorities: We may disclose personal data to agencies, courts and other authorities in Switzerland and abroad if we are legally obliged or entitled to make such disclosures or if it appears necessary to protect our interests. These authorities act as separate controllers.
All these categories of recipients may involve third parties, so that your data may also be disclosed to them. We can restrict the processing by certain third parties (for example IT providers), but not by others (for example authorities, banks, etc.).
8. Is your personal data disclosed abroad?
As explained in section 7, we disclose data to other parties. These are located in Switzerland, and the European Economic Area (EEA). In exceptional cases, your data may be processed in any country in the world.
If a recipient is located in a country without adequate statutory data protection, we require the recipient to undertake to comply with data protection. For this purpose, we use the revised European Commission's standard contractual clauses, unless the recipient is subject to a legally accepted set of rules to ensure data protection and unless we cannot rely on an exception. An exception may apply for example in case of legal proceedings abroad, but also in cases of overriding public interest or if the performance of a contract requires disclosure, if you have consented or if data has been made available generally by you and you have not objected against the processing.
Please note that data exchanged via the internet is often routed through third countries. Your data may therefore be sent abroad even if the sender and recipient are in the same country.
9. How long do we process your data?
We process your data for as long as our processing purposes, the legal retention periods and our legitimate interests in documentation and keeping evidence require it or storage is a technical requirement. You will find further information on the respective storage and processing periods for the individual data categories in Section 3, and for cookies in Section 12. If there are no contrary legal or contractual obligations, we will delete or anonymize your data once the storage or processing period has expired as part of our usual processes.
10. How do we protect your data?
We take appropriate security measures in order to maintain the required security of your personal data and ensure its confidentiality, integrity and availability, and to protect it against unauthorized or unlawful processing, and to mitigate the risk of loss, accidental alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access.
11. What are your rights?
Applicable data protection laws grant you the right to object to the processing of your data in some circumstances.
To help you control the processing of your personal data, you have the following rights in relation to our data processing, depending on the applicable data protection law:
- The right to request information from us as to whether and what data we process from you;
- The right to have us correct data if it is inaccurate;
- The right to request erasure of data;
- The right to request that we provide certain personal data in a commonly used electronic format or transfer it to another controller;
- The right to withdraw consent, where our processing is based on your consent;
- The right to receive, upon request, further information that is helpful for the exercise of these rights;
If you wish to exercise the above-mentioned rights in relation to us, please contact us in writing, at our premises or, unless otherwise specified or agreed, by e-mail; you will find our contact details in Section 2. In order for us to be able to prevent misuse, we need to identify you (for example by means of a copy of your ID card, unless identification is not possible otherwise).
Please note that conditions, exceptions or restrictions apply to these rights under applicable data protection law (for example to protect third parties or trade secrets). We will inform you accordingly where applicable.
If you do not agree with the way we handle your rights or with our data protection practices, please let us (Section 2) know. If you are located in the EEA, the United Kingdom or in Switzerland, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent data protection supervisory authority in your country.
12. Do we use online tracking techniques?
»Cookies« are small files that are stored on users computers. Different information can be stored within the cookies. A cookie is primarily used to store the information about a user (or the device on which the cookie is stored) during or after his visit to an online offer. Temporary cookies, or »session cookies« or »transient cookies«, are cookies that are deleted after a user leaves an online service and closes the browser. In such a cookie, for example, the content of a shopping cart in an online shop or a login status can be saved. »Permanent« or »persistent« refers to cookies that remain stored even after the browser has been closed. For example, the login status can be saved if users visit it after several days. Likewise, in such a cookie the interests of the users can be stored, which are used for range measurement or marketing purposes. A »third-party cookie« refers to cookies that are offered by providers other than the person responsible for the online offer (otherwise, if it is only their cookies, this is called »first-party cookies«).
We only use temporary »first-party cookies«.
If users do not want cookies stored on their computer, they are asked to disable the option in their browser's system settings. Saved cookies can be deleted in the system settings of the browser. The exclusion of cookies can lead to functional restrictions of this online offer.
13. What third-party services and content do we integrate?
Based on our legitimate interests in analysis, optimization and economic operation, we make use of content or services offered by third-party providers.
We integrate the maps of the service »OpenStreetMap«, which are offered by the OpenStreetMap Foundation (OSMF) based on the Open Data Commons Open Database License (ODbL).
To our knowledge, OpenStreetMap uses user data exclusively for the purpose of displaying the map functions and caching the selected settings. This data may include, in particular, IP addresses and location data of the users, which, however, are not collected without their consent (usually as part of the settings on their mobile devices). OpenStreetMap may store cookies in your browser or use comparable recognition technologies.
The data are currently processed in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.
14. Can we update this Privacy Notice?
This Privacy Notice is not part of a contract with you. We can change this Privacy Notice at any time. The version published on this website is the current version.
