What information and personal data is gathered?
By accessing the ALEGRA CAPITAL websites, you give your consent to this privacy statement. If you do not consent to these provisions, we request that you refrain from any further access to the ALEGRA CAPITAL website.
These privacy provisions may be updated at any time. We recommend checking them regularly. The current privacy provisions were updated in May 2020.
The term "personal data" includes all information that refers directly (e.g. name, address, unique number, etc.) or indirectly (through a combination of information that may originate from different sources) to a particular person. Depending on the purpose of the data processing, the person may be a client, an interested party, or a person otherwise in a relationship with ALEGRA CAPITAL, such as shareholders.
Cookies and connection data
Cookies are tiny text files that are automatically saved on your device when you visit our websites. Most cookies are deleted when the browser session is terminated, while others stay on your device and recognise you when you visit the website again. Technical cookies are needed for the full range of functions of our website.
Connection information or cookies allow us to link the origin of the information you enter with your identity as your IP address is automatically registered. Beyond that, your user behaviour and technical data (e.g. browser, language settings, etc.) are registered and analysed during your visit.
Purpose and scope of data collection and processing
The information gathered from you or collected during the connection is processed primarily to carry out service such as sending newsletters etc. The information gained serves to further develop the websites and to improve the risk management of ALEGRA CAPITAL. Beyond that, ALEGRA CAPITAL processes personal information to further develop and improve its products, services, and marketing strategies.
Regulatory and legal provisions may require the processing of personal data by ALEGRA CAPITAL.
Via their website, ALEGRA CAPITAL collects personal data that is expressly made available by visitors through forms or in other ways. In such cases, ALEGRA CAPITAL may use the personal information to provide customised offerings, individual advice, and information on products and services.
Legal provisions authorise or require ALEGRA CAPITAL to record business correspondence, electronic channels such as e-mail, etc. We may record telephone conversations (only after separate notification). The information is saved in an archive in accordance with the legal recordkeeping obligations.
Access protection and security of personal information
ALEGRA CAPITAL takes appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure that your personal data is protected from loss or unauthorised access.
This data is used and forwarded exclusively within the framework of the laws and requirements in force. The data is in principle forwarded only within ALEGRA CAPITAL, whose employees and mandated persons are required to comply with data protection. This collected data may in some cases also be forwarded to public authorities where required or permitted by the law in force.
Security during data transmission
The internet is an open medium through which data is often transmitted without encryption and can thus in principle be accessed by third parties. If you use our website to communicate personal data (name, address, telephone number, etc.), that data is in principle protected against unauthorised access. Nevertheless, your IP address may be used to draw the conclusion that you are in contact with ALEGRA CAPITAL.
E-mail communication with ALEGRA CAPITAL is in principle open and unencrypted. It can therefore not be ruled out that sent data may be accessed by third parties and that contact with ALEGRA CAPITAL can be inferred. Even if you use Secure Mail, the e-mail address of the sender and recipient is visible to third parties. Also, the data may be circulated across national borders, even if the sender and the recipient are located in the same country.
The confidentiality of e-mail communication is thus not always adequately ensured.
Forwarding of information
Your personal data is forwarded to third parties only if there is an express legal requirement to that effect, if doing so is necessary to perform the contract, or if you have given your consent in advance. At any time, you may revoke consent previously given with effect for the future.
Transmission of data to recipients outside Switzerland or the Principality of Liechtenstein
Data is transmitted to recipients outside Switzerland or the Principality of Liechtenstein in order to perform our contracts as well as in exceptional cases expressly provided by law.
Use of partner services
For purposes such as sending out newsletters, ALEGRA CAPITAL uses partner services that provide services on behalf of ALEGRA CAPITAL or on an outsourcing basis. By using these services, you give your consent to the general terms and conditions and disclaimers applicable to those services.
Request for information
If you would like to obtain information about the data processed in relation to yourself, you have the right – in writing and free of charge – to request a response from us. Beyond that, you have the right – in writing and free of charge – to request correction or deletion of the data. The applications for this purpose must be sent in writing to the Data Protection Officer at the address below, together with proof of identity (copy of identification document).
In some cases, legal provisions on data processing may prevent deletion of the data. If so, ALEGRA CAPITAL will continue to process the data only to the extent necessary to fulfil the legal obligations on safekeeping of data.
