Information about the collection of personal data
Please find below information about the collection of personal data when using our website. The “responsible person” as per the GDPR and other national data protection laws and provisions, which are key for the purpose and means of processing personal data, is:
Sygnum AG, Bahnhofstrasse 3, 8001 Zürich, Switzerland
When you contact us by e-mail, the personal data you provide is saved by us so that we can answer your questions. We shall delete the data received in this situation once it is no longer required to store the data, or restrict the processing if legal storage obligations exist.
If we commission service providers with individual functions of our offer, or want to use your data for advertising purposes, we will notify you below in detail about the respective processes. We also state the specified criteria for the duration of storage there.
Legal basis for the processing of data
We fundamentally only process your personal data if this is necessary to provide a functioning website and for our content and services. The processing of your personal data is only done regularly once your consent has been obtained. There is an exception to this in cases where obtaining your consent in advance is not possible due to practical reasons, and the processing of the data is permitted by legal provisions.
If we obtain your consent for the processing of your personal data, Art. 6, paragraph 1a GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing. If the processing is necessary to protect a justified interest of our company, and if the afore-mentioned interest does not outweigh your interests, basic rights and freedom, then Art. 6, paragraph 1f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.
Deletion of data and storage duration
Your personal data is deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for the saving no longer applies. Furthermore, the data can be saved if this is intended by an act, law or other provisions, which the responsible person is subject to. A block or deletion of the data is also done, if a storage period prescribed by the afore-mentioned standards expires, unless it is necessary to continue to save the data for the conclusion or execution of a contract.
