Personal data collection and processing
Personal data I collect and process about you includes your name and e-mail address if you submit the form on the website or send me an e-mail.
Google Analytics collects other personal information including your IP address, see below, when you navigate the website.
How I process your personal data
I process your personal data to communicate with you, to provide and improve my website, including monitoring and evaluating its use and to comply with my legal, regulatory and risk management obligations, including establishing, exercising or defending legal claims. I process personal data for these purposes on the following basis: that it is necessary for me to perform a contract, such as engaging with an individual to provide services; for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or proceedings; to comply with legal and regulatory obligations; for legitimate interests including the interests set out above; and/or based on your consent. I use various technical and organisational measures to help protect your personal data from unauthorised access, use, disclosure, alteration or destruction.
Use of my website and communication channels
I automatically collect and store log data and device information for a limited time when you access and use my website. That information includes, among other things, details about how you use my website, IP address, access dates and times, hardware and software information, device information and similar information. I process that data on the basis that it is required for me to operate, maintain and improve my website.
My website uses Google Analytics, a service provided by Google LLC, USA that tracks and reports on the manner in which my websites are used. Google Analytics does this by placing small text files called “cookies” on your computer or other devices. Cookies help collect information about the number of visitors to a website, the pages visited and the time spent on a website. This information is aggregated and not personally identifiable. This integration of Google Analytics generally anonymizes IP addresses by shortening within the EU/EEA. Google is registered under the US-Swiss and the EU-US Privacy Shield.

Who I share your personal data with
I may share your personal data with trusted third parties including suppliers to whom I outsource certain support services and IT service providers. For the purposes set out in this Data Privacy Statement and where necessary, I may share personal data with courts, tribunals, regulatory authorities, government agencies and law enforcement agencies. I may also be required to disclose your personal data to comply with legal or regulatory requirements.
Countries I transfer your personal data to
I may transfer your personal data to recipients abroad, including in countries that do not provide the same level of protection as Swiss law such as the US. I will usually do so on the basis that such transfer is necessary for the performance of an agreement with the data subject(s), for an agreement or performance of an agreement concluded in the interest of the data subject, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
How I retain your personal data
I retain your personal data for as long as it is necessary for the purposes for which the data is collected, and as long as I have a legitimate interest in keeping personal data, for example to enforce or defend claims or for archiving purposes and IT security. I also retain your personal data as long as it is subject to a legal retention obligation.
You are entitled to ask for details of the personal data I hold about you and how I process it and to receive a copy of your personal data. You may also have your data rectified or deleted, restrict my processing of that information, and object to the processing of your personal data. You may also choose to withdraw your consent.
Please note that even after you have chosen to withdraw your consent I may be able to continue to process your personal data to the extent required or permitted by law. You may also lodge a complaint in relation to our processing of your personal data with a local supervisory authority, in Switzerland with the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner.
