Collection, processing and use of personal data

We only collect, process or use personal data from you if you voluntarily provide it to us or have consented to it, and if it is also permitted by law. As a rule, we only collect data that we need to provide the requested services (e.g. name, address, contact details, course details). We process users' personal data only in compliance with the relevant data protection regulations in accordance with the requirements of data minimisation and data avoidance, in line with the Swiss data protection regulations. The processing of your data is carried out to fulfil the contract concluded between you and us and to fulfil a legal obligation to which the person responsible is subject or to safeguard the legitimate interests of the person responsible. This justified interest consists exclusively in the administration of data for the purpose of communication and correspondence regarding the sales contract and the processing of the agreed service, for the accounting and payment execution of the sales contract, for the improvement of our offer as well as for information about similar products or services.

We take organisational, contractual and technical security measures in accordance with state of the art technology to ensure that the provisions of data protection laws are complied with and to protect the data processed by us against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against access by unauthorised persons.

Your data will only be passed on to third parties within the framework of processing or implementation of the service requested by you or otherwise with your consent. Personal data will only be transferred to state institutions and authorities within the framework of mandatory legal provisions.

When storing customer data, we follow the principle of data minimisation and storage limitation. The above-mentioned data is only collected and processed if it is necessary for the business case and organisational processing.

We use the protocol data without allocation to the person of the user or other profiling according to the legal regulations only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and optimisation of our online offer.

Deactivate Google Analytics

On our website you have the possibility to subscribe to our newsletter. The following information will inform you about the contents of our newsletter as well as registration, mailing and statistical evaluation procedures and your rights of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you declare your agreement with the receipt and the described procedures. If you book a course, we will include your contact details directly in the newsletter distribution list.

Newsletter content: We send out newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications containing advertising information. Our newsletters contain the following information: our offers, important events and dates in the near future, references to articles in connection with Lassalle-Haus or allied organisations. In order to subscribe to the newsletter, it is sufficient to enter your e-mail address and the category(ies) in which you are interested.

Statistical survey and analysis: The newsletters contain a so-called "web-beacon", i.e. a pixel-sized file, which is retrieved by the server of the mailing service provider when the newsletter is opened. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval is collected.

This information is used for technical improvement of the services based on technical data or target groups and their reading behaviour pertaining to retrieval locations (which can be determined with the help of the IP address) or the times of access. The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked.

For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our nor the mailing service provider's intention to observe individual users. Rather, the evaluations serve us to recognise the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content or to send different content according to the interests of our users.

Cancellation/revocation: You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. With this, your consents to its mailing by the service provider and the statistical analysis expire. A separate revocation of mailing by the service provider or the statistical analysis is unfortunately not possible. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the bottom of each newsletter.

In cases where there is justified interest in prolonged retention, we reserve the right to retain data for the duration of the statutory limitation period.

After expiry of this period, all data will be deleted or anonymised to the extent that any personal conclusion can no longer be drawn.
