We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereinafter “reCAPTCHA”) on our websites. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Park-way, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). 
reCAPTCHA shall be used to evaluate whether data is entered on our websites (e.g. in contact forms) by a human being or by an automated programme. To this end, reCAPTCHA analyses the website visitor’s behaviour based on various characteristics. The analysis is automatically initiated once the website visitor enters the website. For the analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates different information (e.g. IP address, visitor’s time spent on the website and mouse movement of the user). The data recorded during the analysis is forwarded to Google. 
The reCAPTCHA analyses are completely carried out in the background. Website visitors are informed that an analysis is taking place. 
Data shall be processed in accordance with GDPR, Art. 6, para. 1 (f). The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting his web offerings against abusive automated spyware and against SPAM.

HOW DO WE COLLECT AND USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

We will collect your Personal Data directly from you in the context of our interaction, e.g. when you visit our website, communicate with us in relation to our products and services, submit an order, register to receive our newsletter or participate in our customer surveys. We do not obtain Personal Data from third parties.
In as far as you have expressly given your consent, we may also obtain your Personal Data from third parties for marketing purposes. In such cases, you will be informed about this in accordance with applicable law.

WHERE DO WE PROCESS PERSONAL DATA?

SWISS KRONO is a globally active enterprise. In the context of our business activities, we may transfer your Personal Data also to recipients in countries outside of the European Economic Area (“third countries”), where the level of data protection is not the same as in your home country. When doing so, we will respect applicable data protection requirements and take appropriate safeguards to ensure the security and integrity of your Personal Data, in particular by entering into the EU Standard Contractual Clauses, which you may retrieve from here:
eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do
You may contact us anytime using the contact details below if you would like further information on such safeguards. 

HOW DO WE PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

We implement physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in accordance with the technical state of the art and legal data protection requirements to protect your Personal Data. These safeguards include implementing specific technologies and procedures designed to protect your privacy, such as secure servers, firewalls and SSL encryption. We will at all times act in accordance with applicable laws and regulations regarding the confidentiality and security of Personal Data.

TO WHOM WILL WE TRANSFER YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

We may transfer your Personal Data as follows:

  • to our affiliates within SWISS KRONO Group worldwide if and to the extent required for the Permitted Purposes described above and legally admissible. In such cases, these entities will then use the Personal Data only for the same Permitted Purposes and under the same conditions as outlined above. 
  • to service providers (so-called data processors) within or outside of SWISS KRONO Group, domestically or abroad (e.g. shared service centres or Cloud providers), commissioned by us to process Personal Data for the Permitted Purposes on our behalf and in accordance with our instructions only. SWISS KRONO will retain control over and will remain responsible for your Personal Data and will take appropriate safeguards as required by applicable law to ensure the integrity and security of your Personal Data when commissioning such service providers.
  • to courts, law enforcement authorities or other competent authorities or attorneys if legally permitted and necessary to comply with a legal obligation or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
  • to credit reference agencies and other companies for use in credit decisions, for fraud prevention and to collect debts.

Apart from that, we will only transfer your Personal Data when you instruct us to or give us permission, when we are required by law or a judicial or administrative order to do so, or when we suspect fraudulent or criminal activities.

HOW LONG DO WE STORE PERSONAL DATA?

We will store your Personal Data as long as required to provide the services, products or information you have ordered or requested and to perform and administer our business relationship with you. If you have told us not to communicate with you, we will hold this information as long as required to comply with your request. In addition, we are required by law to keep certain Personal Data for certain retention periods (e.g. due to retention obligations under commercial or tax law). Your Personal Data will be promptly deleted when it is no longer required for these purposes.

YOUR RIGHTS

Under certain legal conditions, you may request access to, correction of, deletion of or restriction of processing of your Personal Data. You may also object to processing or request data portability. In particular, you have the right to request a copy of the Personal Data that we store about you. If you make such requests repeatedly, we may charge you for this. Please refer to GDPR, Articles 15-22 for details on your data protection rights. 
In case you have given us your consent for the processing of your Personal Data, you may withdraw your consent at any time with future effect, i.e. the withdrawal of the consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on the consent before its withdrawal. In case consent is withdrawn, we may only further process the Personal Data where there is another legal ground for the processing or where we are required by law to do so. 
For any of the above requests, please send a brief description of your Personal Data concerned stating your name, customer number or other SWISS KRONO identification number as well as your date of birth as proof of identity to the contact details below. We may require additional proof of identity to protect your Personal Data against unauthorized access. We will carefully consider your request and may discuss with you how it can best be fulfilled.
If you have concerns about how we process your Personal Data or wish to lodge a complaint, you can contact us at the contact details below to have the matter investigated. In case you are not satisfied with our response or believe that we are processing your Personal Data not in accordance with the applicable law, you can complain to the competent data protection supervisory authority in your country. 

ARE YOU REQUIRED TO PROVIDE PERSONAL DATA? 

In general, you provide us with your personal data on a voluntary basis. There are basically no detrimental effects on you if you do not consent or do not provide your Personal Data. However, there are circumstances in which SWISS KRONO cannot take action without certain of your Personal Data, for example because this Personal Data is required to process your orders, provide you with access to a web offering or newsletter or to carry out a legally required compliance screening. In these cases, it will unfortunately not be possible for SWISS KRONO to provide you with what you requested without the relevant Personal Data.

WHAT IF I’M UNDER 16?

In case you are under 16, you need your parent/guardian’s permission prior to providing us with any of your Personal Data. Persons under the age of 16 are not permitted to provide us with their Personal Data without such consent.
