We do not sell your personal data and we do not pass them on to third parties without your permission. SWISS PLASTIC SURGERY is also entitled to use service providers to process data, manage the website or for other purposes, as well as to provide the products and services you require. The relevant service providers are obliged to comply with the same level of security and data protection as SWISS PLASTIC SURGERY.

How long do we retain your data?

We retain your personal data for as long as is necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or for as long as we are obliged under statutory retention obligations. We will delete your personal data at most 10 years after our legal relationship with you ends.

How do we use cookies?

When you visit the SWISS PLASTIC SURGERY website, we collect statistic visitor data to tell us which parts of the website you and all other users visit most. We collect data regarding the used browser, operating system, weblog and other connection data.

For this, it is sometimes necessary to use “cookies”. Cookies are small files saved on your computer or mobile device when you use one of our web pages. The cookies we use are to ensure our website functions as it should. We also use cookies to customize our web offering and make browsing our website as convenient as possible for you. The data we collect contain no personal information or they are sufficiently anonymised that they cannot be linked back to you.

How do we use web analytics tools?

We use the web analytics tool Matomo to continually improve and optimise our online offering. This provides us with statistics and graphics that give us insights into the use of our web pages. Matomo transfers the data on the use of our website to servers abroad using an abbreviated IP address, which prevents individual devices from being identified. This forwarding of data to Matomo is subject to the standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission.

The IP address transmitted by Matomo from your browser is not merged with other data from Matomo. Matomo will transfer these data to third parties solely based on legal provisions or as part of contract data processing.

If you do not want the provider to collect data about you via cookies, you can select “Block third-party cookies” in your browser settings. Then your browser won’t send cookies to the server if there is embedded content from other providers. If you choose this setting, other functions of our website might no longer work.

What are your rights with regard to your personal data?

You have the right, at any time, to be given information about your saved personal data, to correct and supplement your personal data, to object to the processing of your personal data or to request the deletion of your personal data.

If you use the contact form, you will be asked to provide personal data such as your name, address, email address along with the message you would like us to receive.
