This Privacy Statement describes the ways in which IFPMA collects, holds, and uses information about individual persons who visit this website.
1. Pledge on privacy
2. Intended use of Personal Data
Most of our services do not require any form of registration, allowing you to visit our site without telling us who you are. However, a few of our services require you to provide us with Personal Data. In these situations, if you choose to withhold any Personal Data requested by us, it may not be possible for you to gain access to certain parts of the site and for us to respond to your query.
We use and process your Personal Data to operate this website and to communicate with you, upon your request, and it is in our legitimate interest to do so. Where required, we will ask for your consent before processing your Personal Data. Although unlikely, we may also be subject to legal obligations that mandate us to process your Personal Data in a certain way.
3. Non-disclosure of Personal Data
4. Data Security and Retention
5. Your Rights
Whenever we process Personal Data, we take reasonable steps to ensure that your Personal Data is kept accurate and up-to-date for the purposes it was collected, and you are responsible for informing us of any relevant update to your Personal Data. You have the right to access, correct, and object to the processing of your Personal Data by us if such processing is not reasonably required for a legitimate business purpose as described in this policy or in compliance with law.
Upon request, we will provide you with a copy of your personal data, delete it, or restrict its processing. You are also entitled to lodge a complaint with a competent Data Protection Authority (Switzerland).
Your rights are not absolute, and restrictions, conditions, and limitations may apply. If you wish to contact us regarding our use of your Personal Data or to exercise your rights, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you contact us, please note that you are concerned with data provided over our IFPMA.org website, as well as the specific information you would like us to provide, correct, update, or delete plus your proper identification. As indicated, all rights requests will be subject to restrictions and limitations such as any applicable legal and ethical reporting or document filing or retention obligations imposed on us.
If you do not want us to install non-necessary cookies, please either decline them upon entering the site via the Cookie Banner or email us at email@example.com.
We would like to inform you, however, that if you do not accept the non-necessary cookies, you may not be able to use all functionality of your browser software. We may obtain the services of outside parties to assist us in collecting and processing the information described in this Section.
7. Links to other sites
Unless otherwise indicated, IFPMA.org is not directed to minors as defined by applicable law (often below 18 or 16 years of age depending on the jurisdiction). We do not knowingly collect Personal Data from minors. If you provide us with Personal Data of minors, you represent that you have the appropriate authority to do so and that you can demonstrate such authority to us upon request.
9. Jurisdiction and cross-border transfer
We are based in Switzerland and the majority of your Personal Data will be stored and processed therein, but processing will also occur in any country where we engage service providers that process data for us, and specifically the United States of America. By providing your Personal Data, you understand that your Personal Data will be transferred to countries outside of your country of residence, to business that may have data protection rules that are different from those of your country of residence. Although unlikely, in certain circumstances, courts, law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies, or security authorities in those other countries may be entitled to access your Personal Data. We only transfer your Personal Data to jurisdictions that are not found to provide an adequate level of data protection in compliance with applicable data protection law with appropriate protection, for instance by executing Standard Contractual Clauses to govern the processing of your data. Note that transfers of Personal Data between the EEA/UK and Switzerland are not restricted.
