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 wy.by AG, for what purpose this information is used and with whom it is exchanged. When handling your data, wy.by AG complies with the applicable legislation - in particular the EU Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) and Swiss data protection law. wy.by 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.

Passing on of personal data

  • 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 wy.by 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 wy.by 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.
