Privacy Policy

We take data protection very seriously. This is of course reflected in our handling of personal data. This policy provides information about which information and data is collected and evaluated by Icontel AG, for what purpose this information is used and with whom it is exchanged. When handling your data, Icontel AG complies with the applicable legislation - in particular the EU Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) and Swiss data protection law. Icontel AG allows itself the processing of personal data based on the consent of the data subjects.

Collection of general information

When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and similar information. This is exclusively information which does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person. This information is technically necessary to correctly deliver the content you have requested from websites and is mandatory when using the Internet. Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us to optimize our Internet presence and the technology behind it.

Processing of personal data

Person categories
Customers

This category includes, as the term suggests, our customers, clients and other parties for whom Icontel AG provides services during its business activities.

Vendors

The term refers to partnerships and companies (including sole proprietors) as well as atypical employees such as independent contractors and freelancers who provide services for Icontel AG. Under certain circumstances, Icontel AG subcontracts services that it provides to its customers to external suppliers who provide the services on behalf of Icontel AG. In this context, suppliers who are individual contractors, freelancers or employees of suppliers are treated as candidates for data protection purposes.

Website Visitors

All persons accessing an Icontel AG website.

Customer Data
Processing Purpose

With data processing we ensure that the contractual agreements between Icontel AG and our customers can be properly implemented and a smooth business relationship can be guaranteed.

Type of Processing

  • Collecting your information from you and other sources, e.g. LinkedIn
  • Storing (and, if necessary, updating) your data in our database so that we can contact you about services to be provided
  • Preparation of meeting and meeting notes so that we can provide specific services for you
  • Processing your data to fulfil obligations to authorities in the course of our activities or in order to be able to address suitable information and advertising campaigns to you
Processed Data

We collect data about our customers only to a very limited extent. We only need your contact details or the contact details of individual contacts within your organization (such as names, business addresses, telephone numbers and e-mail addresses) to ensure a smooth business relationship. We may also store additional information that someone from your organization has voluntarily provided to us.

Vendor Data
Processing Purpose

We need the contact details of the responsible persons within your organization in order to communicate with you. We also need further information, such as your bank details, so that we can pay for the services you provide (if this is part of the contractual agreements).

Type of Processing

Information shall be provided in particular in the following ways:

  • Collecting information from you and other sources
  • Storing (and, if necessary, updating) your data in our database
  • Developing appropriate targeted advertising campaigns
Processed Data

We collect information about our contacts within your organization, such as names, phone numbers and e-mail addresses. We also collect bank information to make payments to you.

Website Visitor Data

We collect anonymous data from visitors to our website and use it to make it easier for you to use our website and to better manage the services we offer.

Processed Data

This includes information on how you use our website, how often you access our website, your browser type, the location from which you access our website, the selected language and the times at which our website is particularly in demand.

Passing on of personal data

We may disclose your personal data to the following categories of persons for the following purposes:

  • Tax, audit or other authorities, if we are required by law or other regulations to disclose this information (for example, because of a request from a tax authority or relating to an anticipated lawsuit)
  • External service providers providing services on our behalf (including external consultants, business partners and professional consultants such as lawyers, auditors and accountants, technical support functions and IT consultants who develop and test our company's technological systems)
  • Providers of externally assigned IT services and storage providers, if a corresponding processing agreement (or comparable security) exists

If Icontel AG merges with or is acquired by another company (or there are meaningful discussions about such a possibility) in the future, we may disclose your personal data to the (future) new owners of the company or society.

Protection of your Data

The data that we process is treated confidentially and protected against loss and manipulation as well as against unauthorized access by third parties by means of suitable technical and organizational measures. Your data is stored exclusively on servers in Switzerland.

If you suspect that your personal information has been misused, lost or accessed by unauthorized persons, please let us know as soon as possible.

Duration of Storage / Revocation of Consent

We process and store your data until you revoke your consent to the storage or further processing of the data. If you do so, we will delete your personal information from our systems unless we are required by law or other regulations to keep it (for example, because you have a request from a tax authority or the information is required relating to an anticipated lawsuit).

Privacy Rights

Under certain conditions you can assert your data protection rights against us:

Right to revoke consent

If you have given your consent for certain types of processing activities, you can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future. However, this revocation does not affect the legality of the processing prior to the revocation of your consent or insofar as the processing can be justified on another legal basis.

Right to Information

You have the right pursuant to Art. 15 DSGVO to receive information from us about your data stored by us.

Right to Rectify

At your request, we will correct the data stored about you in accordance with Art. 16 DSGVO if it is inaccurate or incorrect.

Right of Deletion

If you wish, we will delete your data in accordance with the principles of Art. 17 DSGVO, provided that other legal regulations (e.g. statutory retention obligations) or a predominant interest on our part (e.g. in defense of our rights and claims) do not conflict with this.

Right to Restrict Editing or Blocking

You may request us to restrict the processing of your data, considering the requirements of Art. 18 DSGVO.

Right of objection

You may also object to the processing of your data in accordance with Art. 21 DSGVO. This right of objection exists in the event of certain reasons arising from your particular situation. In this case, we will no longer process your data unless we are legally entitled to reject your objection. However, any objection to advertising measures is mandatory for us and we may no longer process your data for these purposes.

If you have given your consent for advertising measures and no longer wish to receive these advertising measures, you must revoke your consent.

Right to Data Transferability

You also have the right to receive your data in a structured, common and machine-readable format in accordance with the regulations of Art. 20 DSGVO or to transmit them to a third party.

Right of Appeal to the Data Protection Authority

You also have a right of appeal to any competent data protection supervisory authority (Art. 77 DSGVO). However, we recommend that you always address a complaint to our data protection officer first, so that we can resolve your request as quickly and customer-oriented as possible.

For a quick processing we ask you to send your applications for the exercise of your rights in writing to Icontel AG:

SSL-Encryption

To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (for example SSL) via HTTPS.

Cookies

We use cookies to optimize the use of the website.

Cookies are small text files that store the websites you visit on your computer and allow the website operator to recognize your computer on repeated visits.

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies. However, you can instruct your browser not to accept cookies or to ask you to do so before a cookie from a website you visit is accepted. You can also delete cookies on your computer or mobile device by using the appropriate function of your browser.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. "("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

However, due to the activation of IP anonymization on these websites, your IP address will previously be reduced by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide the website operator with further services associated with website use and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

You may refuse the use of cookies, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Use of Script Libraries (Google Web Fonts)

To present our contents correctly and graphically appealing across all browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Web Fonts on this website. Google Web Fonts are transferred to your browser's cache to avoid multiple loading. If your browser does not support Google Web Fonts or does not allow access, content will be displayed in a default font.

Calling script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. It is theoretically possible - but currently also unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes - that operators of corresponding libraries collect data.

The privacy policy of the library operator Google can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps API to display geographical information visually. When using Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data about the use of map functions by visitors. You can find more information about Google's data processing in the Google Privacy Policy. There you can also change your personal data protection settings in the Data Protection Center.

YouTube Videos

Youtube videos can also be embedded on our website. YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA is the operator of the corresponding plug-ins. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection to Youtube servers is established. Youtube will be informed which pages you visit. If you are logged into your Youtube account, Youtube can assign your surfing behavior to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.

If a YouTube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behavior.

If you have deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program, you will not have to reckon with such cookies when viewing YouTube videos. Youtube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you wish to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in your browser or on our website.

Further information on data protection at YouTube can be found in the provider's data protection declaration.

Google AdWords

Our website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you have reached our website via an ad placed by Google, Google Adwords sets a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad served by Google. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can see that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be traced through the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, you will not receive any information that personally identifies users.

If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can refuse the setting of a cookie required for this - for example via browser settings that generally deactivate the automatic setting of cookies or set your browser so that cookies are blocked by the "googleleadservices.com" domain.

Please note that you may not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not wish measurement data to be recorded. If you have deleted all your cookies in your browser, you must set the respective opt-out cookie again.
