- Protection of personal data
ARIF attaches great importance to the respectful handling and security of its users’ data. For this reason, ARIF only processes the data necessary for the operation of its business. It does not process behavioural data (profiling) and does not market any of its customers’ personal data.
With the exception of registration for newsletters or the dissemination of training programmes, the processing of this personal data is necessary for the processing of the contractual relationship with the client and the performance of the obligations linked thereto or prescribed by law, for example compulsory contractual data. Without this data, ARIF cannot conclude or continue to perform the contracts concerned.
When the client transmits data concerning other natural or legal persons (e.g. employees, employer company), ARIF assumes that the client is authorised to do so and that these data are correct. The client ensures that these other persons are informed of this personal data protection declaration.
ARIF may transmit personal data to companies when the company uses the services of these companies (subcontractors) or when it has concluded training partnerships with third party companies. To this end, it authorises subcontractors to process its clients’ data. ARIF chooses reputable subcontractors and ensures that they have rules guaranteeing respect for personal data in accordance with the LPD and have an appropriate security policy.
All data is stored on servers in Switzerland, except for subcontractors who may be located outside Switzerland. User data is encrypted on servers in Switzerland.
The customer may at any time refuse to be contacted for marketing purposes. In this case, they may unsubscribe at any time by writing to email@example.com.
When participating in events/conferences/seminars, the customer accepts that photos of him/her may be taken and that these may be freely used in marketing communications and disseminated on social networks and the ARIF website. If this is not the case, please inform ARIF in writing.
- Law and jurisdiction
For the rest, Swiss law applies and the place of jurisdiction is exclusively the courts of the Canton of Geneva.
