The logic behind our profiling activities is to identify topics which may be useful or otherwise of interest for you and to inform you about such topics in a more customized way. The algorithms we use apply this logic and automatically deliver the suitable content or information to you.

Please note: Under Article 21, para. 2 of the European General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") you have the right to object to the processing of your Personal Data for marketing purposes, including the profiling described above.

We will not use your Personal Data for taking any automated decisions affecting you or creating profiles in another manner than described above.

The legal bases for processing of your Personal Data are specified in GDPR, Article 6. Depending on which of the Permitted Purposes described above we process your Personal Data for, the processing is either necessary for the performance of a contract or other business agreement with SWISS KRONO or for compliance with our legal obligations or for purposes of legitimate interests pursued by SWISS KRONO or a third party, unless your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms prevail and contradict such processing. In addition, the processing may be based on your explicit consent where you have given that to us.

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.

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 In case consent is withdrawn, we may only further process the Personal Data where there is another legal ground for the processing or where we are required by law to do so.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.
