Google +1 privacy policy

Collection and transfer of information: you can publish information for the world to see with Google +1. The Google +1 interface provides you and other users with personalised content from Google and our partners. Google stores the information that you have given content a +1 as well as information about the page you were viewing when you clicked on the +1. Your +1s can be associated with your profile name and photo in Google services such as search results or your Google profile, or in other places on websites and in advertisements on the Internet. Google logs information about your +1 activities in order to improve its services for you and others. To use Google +1, you need a publicly visible Google profile that must contain the name chosen for the profile at the very least. This name will be used by all Google services. In some cases, this name can replace another name that you have used to share content through your Google account. Users who know your email address or possess other identifying information about you can see the identity of your Google profile. Use of the recorded information: in addition to the purposes described above, the information you provide will be used in line with Google’s privacy policy. Google may publish pooled statistics concerning the +1 activities of users or pass them on to partners or users such as publishers, advertisers or affiliated websites.

Newsletter

On the website of Swiss Fintech Innovations, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our enterprise’s newsletter. The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data are transmitted, as well as when the newsletter is ordered from the controller.

Swiss Fintech Innovations informs its customers and business partners regularly by means of a newsletter about enterprise offers. The enterprise’s newsletter may only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the data subject registers for the newsletter shipping. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address registered by a data subject for the first time for newsletter shipping, for legal reasons, in the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to prove whether the owner of the e-mail address as the data subject is authorized to receive the newsletter.

During the registration for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject at the time of the registration, as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later date, and it therefore serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller.

The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by e-mail, as long as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a registration in question, as this could be the case in the event of modifications to the newsletter offer, or in the event of a change in technical circumstances. There will be no transfer of personal data collected by the newsletter service to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter may be terminated by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has given for shipping the newsletter, may be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revocation of consent, a corresponding link is found in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the controller, or to communicate this to the controller in a different way.

The newsletter contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, Swiss Fintech Innovations may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were called up by data subjects.

Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analyzed by the controller in order to optimize the shipping of the newsletter, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Data subjects are at any time entitled to revoke the respective separate declaration of consent issued by means of the double-opt-in procedure. After a revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the controller. Swiss Fintech Innovations automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.

This type of service allows Users to interact with data collection platforms or other services directly from the pages of this Website for the purpose of saving and reusing data.
