SIS Swiss International Schools Schweiz AG, Seestrasse 269, 8038 Zürich, is responsible for data processing unless otherwise stated in individual cases. If you have any data protection concerns, you can communicate them to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Principles of Data Collection and Processing
SIS collects and processes personal data voluntarily provided via web services (e.g. contact form) by technical means (including cookies and in the local memory of the browser) and stores it. SIS also collects automated personal data each time we contact you via our web services. Each time a web service is called up and used, certain personal data such as the IP address, MAC address of the device, details of the device, browser and operating system, internet provider, cookies, date and time of use, pages and content called up, functions used, referring web pages, location details and language and country settings are collected. Personal data is stored and processed exclusively for your individual support or the submission of service offers. The following explanations provide you with an overview of how SIS ensures this protection and what type of data is collected, processed or used for what purpose. Possible purposes include:
- Communication: SIS processes your personal data (first name, last name, address, contact details) for the purpose of communicating with you by telephone, letter post or electronically.
- Services: SIS processes your personal data (first name, last name, address, contact details), for example, to conclude a school contract.
- Analysis of the user behaviour of the website: Furthermore, SIS analyses the user behaviour of the users of this website in order to improve our internet offers or to individualise offers to you.
Insofar as you have given us consent to process your personal data for specific purposes (for example, when sending the contact form), SIS processes your personal data within the scope of and based on this consent, insofar as it has no other legal basis and it requires such a basis. Consent given can be revoked at any time, but this has no effect on data processing that has already taken place.
SIS processes and stores your personal data for as long as it is necessary for the fulfilment of its contractual and legal obligations or otherwise the purposes pursued with the processing, for example, for the duration of the entire business relationship (from the initiation and processing to the termination of a contract) as well as beyond this in accordance with the statutory retention and documentation obligations. In this context, it is possible that personal data will be retained for the time during which claims can be asserted against our company and insofar as SIS is otherwise legally obliged to do so or legitimate business interests require this (e.g. for evidence and documentation purposes). As soon as your personal data is no longer required for the above-mentioned purposes, it will be deleted or anonymised as far as possible as a matter of principle.
Disclosure of Personal Data
The data collected will only be passed on to third parties if there is a legal basis for doing so or if you have consented to the data being passed on. The data will not be passed on to third parties for further purposes, such as market research or other marketing. However, SIS reserves the right to use or disclose data to the extent necessary to comply with laws, regulations or legal requirements, in particular to protect the integrity of the website or to support investigations by law enforcement authorities or investigations into matters relating to public safety.
SIS automatically collects and stores in its server log files some of the information usually transmitted by the browser, insofar as your browser provides it. This data can be assigned to your device but not to your person.
Google Analytics and Google Adwords
SIS also uses Google AdWords, an analysis service from Google, and conversion tracking as part of Google AdWords. Google AdWords places a cookie for conversion tracking on your computer's hard drive (a so-called conversion cookie) when you click on an ad placed by Google. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages of this website, Google and SIS can recognise that you have clicked on the ad and have been redirected to this page. The information obtained with the help of the conversion cookies is used to compile statistics. Through these statistics, SIS learns, for example, the total number of users who clicked on the ad placed by Google and called up a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag.
SIS also uses so-called plug-ins from social networks such as Facebook, LinkedIn or Google+ on this website. This is apparent to you in each case (typically via corresponding icons). These elements are configured so that they are deactivated by default. If you activate them by clicking on them, the operators of the respective social networks can register that you are on this website and can use this information for their purposes. The processing of your personal data is then the responsibility of this operator in accordance with its data protection regulations. SIS does not receive any information about you from them.
SIS takes appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data from unauthorised access and misuse, such as issuing instructions, training, IT and network security solutions, access controls and restrictions, encryption of data carriers and transmissions, pseudonymisation and monitoring.
You have the right to assert your data protection rights at any time and to request information on whether and which personal data about you is being processed by SIS. You can request that incorrect information be corrected, supplemented and/or deleted and - depending on the legal basis - even request the deletion and/or restriction of the processing of your personal data stored by SIS. In addition, you might have the right to data portability and the right to lodge a complaint. In the case of personal data that you have actively provided or to the use of which you have actively consented, e.g. by means of a contact form, you also have the right to revoke your consent.
Please note that the exercise of these rights may conflict with contractual arrangements and may have consequences such as early termination of the contract or cost consequences.
In addition, every data subject has the right to enforce his or her claims in court or to lodge a complaint with the competent data protection authority (Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner, http://www.edoeb.admin.ch).
