2. data processing, storage, deletion

We only process personal data that we collect directly via our website, the associated applications, via our platforms, via so-called "landing pages" or as part of the business relationship with our customers and other business partners. Processing only takes place after consent or if there is a corresponding legal basis.

Within the scope of the consent granted by you, we will only process your data within the limits of this granted consent, unless one of the legal bases mentioned below applies. We expressly point out that you can revoke the consent you have given at any time, whereby - lawful - processing actions that have already taken place are not affected by this.

The following reasons may be considered as a legal basis:

  • Consent of the data subject;
  • Fulfillment of the contract with the data subject as a contracting party or required pre-contractual measures at the request of the data subject;
  • Fulfillment of necessary legal obligations of our company;
  • Performing or exercising a task in the public interest;
  • Legitimate interests of our company, provided that the interests of the data subject or their fundamental rights do not prevail.

The personal data collected will be deleted as soon as we no longer need it for the stated purpose or the purpose of storage no longer applies. On the other hand, storage must take place if the Swiss or European legislator provides for a corresponding obligation in the respective laws or regulations. Such obligations arise, among other things, from contract and tax law as well as from the provisions on commercial accounting. Business documents, contracts or accounting vouchers require a retention period of 10 years. This data, which also includes personal data but which we no longer need to provide our services, is blocked and subsequently used solely for accounting and tax purposes.

3. disclosure to third parties

In the course of order processing, it may be necessary to use the services of third parties. In this case, it may be necessary to pass on data to these external service providers in order to provide the services in accordance with the contract. The legal basis for passing on data is identical to the legal basis for lawful processing and can be viewed under point 2. In any case, we contractually ensure that third parties entrusted with the processing of your data comply with the requirements of data protection. Finally, under certain circumstances, we may also be required by official or court order to disclose data to third parties or government agencies.

4. provision of our services and creation of log files

Our system automatically collects and stores - as soon as you access our website - information in so-called log files. These are:

  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system
  • IP address
  • Internet Service Provider
  • Date and time

The aforementioned data cannot be directly assigned to any person. The data collected and stored in this way is not merged with other personal data from you and stored, but is in our system. The legal basis for the aforementioned collection and storage in log files are the legitimate interests of our company.

The storage in log files serves exclusively the functionality of our services. In addition, it supports the optimization of our services and ensures the security of our information technology systems. In any case, the log files are only stored for as long as is necessary to achieve the purpose of their collection. Deletion is automated after each session.

The collection of your data and its storage in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of our website; there is no possibility to object to this.

The processing activities may take place in the USA and/or be transferred to the USA for this purpose. The basis of the data processing and the data transfer to the USA are so-called standard contractual clauses (cf. Art. 46 para. 2 and para. 2 DSGVO). Through these clauses, AWeber undertakes to comply with the applicable European law and the level of data protection.
