5. Recipients of personal data
5.1 Service Providers
We can use external service providers to process your personal data. These are primarily IT, support and hosting providers, identification service providers, creators of usage statistics and marketing or newsletter service providers. They process your personal data on our behalf and only in the way we are allowed to do it ourselves. You will be carefully checked by us with regard to compliance with data protection and, taking into account the applicable statutory data protection regulations, you will be bound to secrecy and to compliance with data protection regulations.
5.2 Third Parties
If and to the extent necessary, we can also disclose your personal data to third parties who do not process the data for us, but for their own purposes and thus on their own responsibility. These are primarily our cooperation partners, such as day-care centers and after-school clubs, as well as providers of banking and insurance products, if applicable. In principle, we only disclose your personal data to these third parties if this is necessary for the provision of our services or if you have consented to this disclosure.
6. Announcement abroad
The recipients of your personal data named in Section 5 are usually located in Switzerland or in the EU/EEA area, but can in principle be located anywhere in the world. If we transfer your personal data to a recipient in a country without appropriate legal data protection, we ensure appropriate data protection by means of appropriate contracts (standard contractual clauses which the FDPIC has approved, issued or recognized in advance) or rely on the legal exceptions of the consent, the Contract processing, the determination, exercise or enforcement of legal claims, the overriding public interest, the published personal data or the need to protect your integrity. You can obtain a copy of the contractual guarantees mentioned here from us at any time. However, we reserve the right to black out copies or only deliver excerpts for reasons of data protection or secrecy.
7. Duration of storage of personal data
We process your personal data as long as it is necessary for the fulfillment of our contractual and/or legal obligations or for the other purposes pursued with the processing, i.e. for the duration of the entire business relationship (from the initiation, processing to the termination of a contract) as well as in accordance with the statutory retention and documentation obligations. It is possible that personal data will be stored for the time in which claims can be asserted against our company and insofar as we are otherwise legally obliged to do so or legitimate business interests require this (e.g. for evidence and documentation purposes). As soon as your personal data are no longer required for the above purposes, they will be deleted or made anonymous as far as possible.
8. Data Security
We take appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect your personal data from loss, unauthorized access and misuse (e.g. through internal instructions, training, IT and network security solutions, access controls and restrictions, encryption of data carriers and transmissions, pseudonymization of personal data, etc.).
9. Your Rights
You have the right to information, correction, deletion and disclosure of certain personal data for the purpose of transfer to another location. Please note, however, that we reserve the right to assert the statutory restrictions on our part, for example if we are obliged to store or process certain data, have an overriding interest in this or need it to assert claims. If you incur any costs, we will inform you in advance. Please note that the exercise of these rights can conflict with contractual agreements and this can have consequences such as premature termination of the contract or financial consequences. We will inform you in advance if this is not already contractually agreed. The exercise of such rights generally requires that you clearly prove your identity (e.g. by means of a copy of your ID). To assert your rights, you can contact us at the address given in Section 1.
