VALUE INSIGHTS GMBH takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory Swiss data protection regulations, the European Data Protection Basic Regulation (DSGVO) and this data protection declaration. The use of our websites (www.valueinsights.ch) is generally possible without providing personal data. Insofar as personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses) is collected on our pages, this is always done on a voluntary basis as far as possible. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent. We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can be subject to security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
- Collection of personal data
In principle, we only collect personal data if it is necessary for the provision of the specific service.
You can visit our website without providing any personal information. We only store access data without personal reference such as the name of your Internet service provider and your Internet browser, the page from which you visit us, the date and duration of your visit or the name of the requested file. These data are evaluated exclusively for the improvement of our offer and do not allow any conclusion about your person.
Personal data that indicates the identity of the customer, such as name, address, postal address, delivery address, telephone number or e-mail address, are only collected on our websites if you voluntarily provide them to us when placing an order, registering for a training or webinar, downloading information or registering for our newsletter or if you use the contact function on the website or otherwise contact us, for example by e-mail. When ordering goods, we use the data provided by you without your separate consent exclusively for the fulfillment and processing of your order.
The customer’s data will only be used to send a newsletter or mailings with the customer’s prior consent. This consent can be revoked at any time without giving reasons with effect for the future.
- Use of personal data
Mandatory and voluntary fields
Please note that there are mandatory fields for all data collected on the website. These are marked with “Required”, an input for the treatment of your inquiry is necessary. All other information is voluntary. If you also make entries in the other fields, these will be evaluated for statistical purposes and to improve our offer.
Personal data that you transmit to us is used for the purposes for which you sent it to us. These are for example the processing of your inquiry, the sending of our newsletter or the handling of your order or the confirmation of your participation in an event or webinar.
Use for advertising purposes
If you have expressly consented to the use of your personal data for advertising purposes, we will also use your personal data for information letters in order to send you current information from time to time, such as invitations to events or webinars, information on trends and current topics, or news on our services and products, by post and/or e-mail.
- To pass on personal data to third parties
Your data will not be passed on unless VALUE INSIGHTS is legally obliged to do so (e.g. request from an investigating authority) or authorized to do so (e.g. as part of order data processing), or unless you have expressly consented to the passing on of your data to third parties. In particular, data will be passed on to third parties insofar as this is necessary to fulfill and process the contract. These third parties are of course also obliged to protect your data and to use it only for the precisely specified purpose. In addition, they are obliged to treat the data in accordance with this data protection declaration and the current legal situation.
- Transmission of personal data abroad
We are also entitled to transfer your personal data to third companies (contracted service providers) abroad if this is appropriate for the data processing described in this data protection declaration. These are obligated to the same extent as we ourselves to data protection. If the level of data protection in a country does not correspond to that in Switzerland, we will contractually ensure that the protection of your personal data corresponds to that in Switzerland at all times.
- Right to information, deletion, blocking
You have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, as well as a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data, if this is possible in accordance with applicable law (e.g. retention obligation).
- Data security
Your personal data, which is exchanged with us on the website, is generally transmitted in encrypted form, which corresponds to the current state of the art.
Some of the cookies we use are deleted after the end of the browser session, i.e. after closing your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your end device and enable us to recognize your browser during your next visit (persistent cookies). You have the possibility at any time to delete cookies stored locally on your computer or to adjust your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and decide individually on their acceptance, or to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally. If cookies are not accepted, the functionality of our website may be restricted.
The exact wording of your data protection consent, insofar as you have given such consent, is as follows:
Yes, I have taken note of the data protection declaration and would like to be regularly informed by VALUE INSIGHTS GMBH by e-mail about events, webinars, trends, topics, trainings and services and agree that my transmitted data may be used for market and customer analyses (if necessary with further data collected) as well as for subsequent advertising. I am aware that I can revoke my consent at any time with effect for the future.
- Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by 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 the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
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 activity and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.
You can prevent Google from collecting data 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 at the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).
If you have agreed that Google may link your web and app browsing history to your Google Account and use information from your Google Account to personalize ads, Google will use your information in conjunction with Google Analytics data to create cross-device remarketing audience lists. Google Analytics first collects your Google-authenticated ID, which is associated with your Google Account (i.e., personally identifiable information), on our website. Google Analytics will then temporarily link your ID to your Google Analytics data to optimize our target audiences.
If you do not agree, you can opt-out by selecting the appropriate settings in the “My Account” section of your Google Account.
This website also uses Google Analytics’ demographic features feature. This allows reports to be generated that include statements about the age, gender, and interests of site visitors. This information comes from Google’s interest-based advertising and third party visitor information. This information cannot be associated with any specific individual. You can deactivate this function at any time by the ad settings in your Google Account or generally prohibit Google Analytics from collecting your data as described under “Objection to data collection”.
- Use of Google AdWords
As an AdWords customer, we also use Google Conversion Tracking, an advertising service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). Google AdWords places a cookie on your computer/mobile device (“conversion cookie”) if you have reached our website via a Google ad. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If you visit other Internet sites and then come to our website, we and Google will know that someone clicked on the ad and was directed to our website, should the cookie not have expired. Each AdWords customer receives a different cookie. As a result, cookies cannot be tracked through AdWords customer websites. The information collected from the Conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for Conversion Tracking. AdWords customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were directed to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, you will not receive any information that personally identifies users. If you do not wish to participate in the tracking procedure, you can also refuse to set a cookie as required for this – for example, by setting your browser to generally deactivate the automatic setting of cookies. You can also deactivate cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the https://www.google.com/adwords/ domain.
