GDPR: Legal basis for the processing

Our legal basis for collecting and processing the information described above depends on the information in question and the specific context in which we collect and process it. 

According to the European Data Protection Act, we only collect and process personal data from users if we have their consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) Data Protection Act), if we need the information in order to fulfil our contractual obligations towards the user (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) Data Protection Act) or if we have a legitimate interest in it.

If a user would like to know more about the legal basis for processing his data for a specific purpose (including any legitimate interests we have in processing the data), he can contact us using the data provided below.

With whom we share data

We pass on data to the following categories of recipients:

  • To third parties who process data on our behalf and assist us in providing our services (e.g., operating support, providing functionality or enhancing the security of the Platform) or who otherwise process personal data for purposes described in this Privacy Policy or disclosed to users when we collect their personal data,
  • To the appropriate law enforcement authorities, regulatory authorities, government agencies, courts or other third parties if we believe that disclosure is necessary (i) for reasons of applicable law, (ii) to exercise, establish or defend our statutory rights, or (iii) to protect a vital interest of the User or another person,
  • To a potential buyer (and its agents and advisors) in connection with a proposed purchase, merger or acquisition of any part of our business, provided that we inform the buyer that it may use the user’s personal information only for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy;

Links to third party Content

The Platform may contain links to other Websites. URKNALL is not responsible for the privacy notices or practices of such Third Party sites.

Children’s Data

URKNALL does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 18. If you believe that your child has provided URKNALL with personal information, e.g. by registering on the Platform, and you would like the information to be removed, please contact us using the contact information provided in the Contact Us section.

Data Security and International Data Transfer

URKNALL uses hashing, encryption and de-identification techniques to ensure that users’ privacy is protected at all times when data is shared with third parties. URKNALL uses generally accepted security standards for Fyooz to protect data both during transmission and upon receipt.

Our servers are located in the European Union. Where appropriate, we have implemented the European Commission (“SCC”) standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data to our subsidiary and to our customers and partners in order to protect personal data that they process from the EEA in accordance with European Union data protection legislation. Users may obtain a copy of the SCC by contacting us using the contact information provided in the “Contact Us” section.

How long will the data be kept?

We retain personal information for as long as we have a continuing legitimate business need (e.g. to provide users with a service they have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements).

Web analytics

How do we use web analytics tools?

In order to continuously improve and optimise the Platform, we use so-called tracking technologies. Web analytics tools provide us with statistics and graphs that tell us how our web pages are used. The data on the use of an Internet page is transferred to the server used for this purpose. Depending on the provider of a web analysis tool, these servers may be located abroad. For the most frequently used web analysis tool, Google Analytics, this data, including shortened IP addresses, is transmitted, which prevents the identification of individual devices. Google complies with the data protection provisions of the “Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield” agreement and has registered with the US Department of Commerce for the “Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield“. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. A transfer of this data by Google to third parties only takes place due to legal regulations or in the context of order data processing.

You can prevent Google from collecting data generated by cookies and related to your use of the Platform (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under this link. Further information on Google Analytics and data protection can be found under these links: Browser Add-on and Google Marketing Platform

Cookies

How do we use cookies?

We also use so-called cookies on the Platform. These are small files that are stored on your computer or mobile device when you use one of our Platforms. We would also like to inform you comprehensively about our use of cookies.

Why do we use cookies?

The cookies we use are initially used to ensure the functionality of the Platform. We also use cookies to make our Platform as convenient as possible.

Which cookies do we use?

Most of the cookies we use are automatically deleted from your computer or mobile device at the end of the browser session (so-called session cookies). For example, we use session cookies to store your country and language preferences and your shopping cart across different pages of an Internet session.

In addition, we also use temporary or permanent cookies. These remain stored on your computer or mobile device after the end of the browser session. When you visit one of our Internet pages again, the system automatically recognizes which entries and settings you prefer. These temporary or permanent cookies remain stored on your computer or mobile device for between one month and ten years, depending on the type of cookie, and are automatically deactivated after the programmed time has elapsed. They serve to make our Internet pages more user-friendly, effective and secure. Thanks to these cookies, you can, for example, view information on the site that is specifically tailored to your interests.

What data is stored in the cookies?

No personal data is stored in the cookies we use. The cookies we use cannot be assigned to a specific person. When a cookie is activated, it is assigned an identification number. 

How can you prevent the storage of cookies?

Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. However, you can instruct your browser not to accept cookies or to ask you to accept them before accepting a cookie from a web page you visit. You can also delete cookies on your computer or mobile device by using the appropriate function of your browser. If you decide not to accept our cookies or the cookies of our partner companies, you will not be able to see certain information on our Internet pages and will not be able to use some functions that are intended to improve your visit.

How do we use social plugins?

The platform uses social plugins, e.g. from Facebook or Twitter. The plugins are marked with the logo of the provider and can be e.g. “Like” buttons or a Twitter button.

If you call up pages on the platform that contain such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with the provider’s computers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from the offering site to your browser and integrated into the Internet site by it. By integrating the plugins, the provider receives the information that you have accessed our website. If you are logged in with the provider at the same time, the provider can assign the visit to your profile. If you interact with the plugins – for example by clicking on the “Like” button or making a comment – the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to the provider and stored there.

If you do not want the provider to collect data about you via our website, you must log out from the provider before visiting our website. Even when logged out, the providers collect anonymous data via the social plugins and set a cookie for you. This data can be assigned to your profile if you log in to the provider at a later point in time.

If a login is offered via a social login service – e.g. Facebook Connect – data is exchanged between the provider and our website. With Facebook Connect, for example, this can be data from your public Facebook profile. By using such login services, you consent to the transfer of data.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing of your data by the provider as well as your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy can be found in the data protection information of the providers.

If you do not want the providers to collect data about you via these cookies, you can select the “Block third-party cookies” function in your browser settings. In this case, the browser will not send cookies to the server for embedded content from other providers. With this setting, other functions of our website may no longer work.

How do we use log files?

Every time you access the Platform, your Internet browser transmits certain usage data to us for technical reasons and stores it in log files. These are the following usage data: Date and time of the visit to our Platform; name of the Website accessed; IP address of your computer or mobile device; address of the Platform from which you came to our Platform; amount of data transferred, as well as the name and version of your browser.

The evaluation of the log files helps us to further improve the Platform and make it more user-friendly, to find and correct errors more quickly and to control server capacities. Using the log files, we can determine, for example, at which time the use of the Platform is particularly popular and provide the corresponding data volume in order to guarantee you the best possible use.

What rights do you have with regard to your personal data?

You have the right to assert your data protection rights at any time and to obtain information about your stored personal data, to correct or supplement your personal data, to object to the processing of your personal data or to demand the deletion of your personal data. You will find the contact options below. In this context, we reserve the right to correspond with you electronically (in particular by e-mail).
