Note about data transfers to the USA

For the sake of completeness, we would like to point out to users, resident or domiciled in Switzerland that in the USA, there are surveillance measures taken by US authorities, which generally entail the storage of all personal data of all persons whose data was transferred from Switzerland to the USA. This is done without any differentiation, limitation, or exception on the basis of the objective pursued, and without an objective criterion that would limit the US authorities’ access to the data and its subsequent use to very specific, strictly limited purposes, which justify access to this data as well as intervention associated with their use. Furthermore, we would like to point out that in the US, there are no legal remedies available for affected Swiss residents that allow them to obtain access to the data concerning them and to demand their rectification or deletion, and that there is no effective legal protection against general legal access rights of US authorities. We explicitly inform the person concerned about this legal and factual situation in order to make a correspondingly informed decision to consent to the use of his data. For users residing in EU Member States, we point out that, from the point of view of the European Union, the US does not have sufficient data protection levels due to, inter alia, the issues mentioned in this section. To the extent that we have explained in this privacy statement that recipients of data (such as Google, Facebook, or Twitter) are based in the US, we will either ensure that your data is protected at a reasonable level by our partners by contractual arrangements with these companies or by securing certification of these companies under the EU-US-Privacy Shield.
