Privacy Policy Sauber Technologies AG

The protection of your privacy and your personal data is very important to the Sauber Group. For this reason, the collection and processing of personal data by the Sauber Group is carried out in compliance with the statutory provisions (totally revised Federal Act on Data Protection (FADP), in force from 1 September 2023).

Sauber Technologies AG, a company registered in Switzerland under company number CHE-103.730.319 , is responsible for data processing.

With this privacy policy, we inform you about what data from you we process, what we need this data for and how you can object to the data processing.

1. What personal data do we process?

Personal data includes all information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person. Examples of this are in particular your name, your telephone number, your e-mail address, your place of birth and your date of birth.

If you contact us by e-mail or otherwise contact us, the personal data you provide will be stored by us so that we can answer your questions. We process data collected for marketing or statistical purposes when you visit our website or after your consent. 

We also process data that is indispensable within the framework of our contractual relationship with you. This includes all information that you provide to us for the fulfilment of the contract or that we receive from third parties in connection with the contractual relationship.

If you share personal data of third parties with us, for example personal details of employees of your company, of customers or clients, you are obliged to obtain the consent of the persons concerned in advance and to inform them about these data protection provisions.

2. For what purposes do we use your data?

As a matter of principle, we only process your personal data if this is necessary to provide a functioning website and if this is required for our content and services.

Other reasons we may process your information include:

Your information may also be used to:

Your information may also be used to send you information about us and our range of products and/or services. For this purpose, we may use your information to:

If you are already a customer of ours or we have another existing relationship with you, we will rely on our legitimate interests as the lawful basis for processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. For this purpose, it may be necessary to process your personal data to enable us to carry out direct marketing in accordance with our legitimate interest. In addition, we believe that you should reasonably expect to receive marketing materials from us using the same methods that we commonly use to communicate with you (e.g. by email) and that, if so, there will be no disproportionate impact on your individual privacy rights.

Unless you are already a customer or we have another existing relationship with you, the marketing of our materials, our events and services (or those of others) to you requires your consent. This consent must be sought no later than the time of our first communication to you. This will give you the option to opt-in to receiving such information (known as ‘opting-in’) by ticking the relevant boxes on the forms we use to collect your information or in links provided in our email communications.

In each and every marketing communication, we will always give you the option to exercise your right to object to the processing of your personal data for marketing purposes (known as ‘opting out’) by clicking the ‘unsubscribe’ button in our marketing emails or selecting a similar opt-out option in the forms we use to collect your data. You can also opt-out of this at any time by contacting us using the contact details below.

Please note that any administrative or service-related communications (to inform you of updates to this Privacy Policy or our applicable terms and conditions for the supply of goods and/or services, etc.) will only be directed to our business partners and that such communications will generally not include an opt-out option as they are necessary to provide the services and/or products requested. Therefore, please note that your ability to opt-out of receiving materials relating to goods and marketing and promotional materials does not alter our right to contact you regarding your use of our website or in the context of any business relationship we may have with you.

If you wish to be removed from the mailing list, we will retain your contact details in our marketing database(s) specifically for the purpose of preventing your contact details from being included in any future marketing campaigns. Only members of our marketing team will have access to this database(s). Your unsubscription will only affect this database(s) and will not result in any changes to any existing information on our other databases that you have provided to us or that we have otherwise obtained for the purpose of providing our products and/or services to you or for any other lawful purpose.

We use aggregate information and statistics for the purpose of monitoring website usage to help us develop our website and services.

3. Who has access to your data? Is data disclosed to third parties or abroad?

Disclosure of information to third parties will only be made in accordance with, or is required by, any contractual relationship we have with you, applicable law, regulation or legal process, unless such information is protected by confidentiality obligations we have with our partners or others.

Personal data may be processed by us and/or our affiliates, agents, vendors, consultants or suppliers and any third party service providers who provide certain services on our behalf for the purposes of this Agreement. Such third parties will have access to personal data solely for the purpose of providing the above services or to comply with applicable law, and not for any other purpose (unless you instruct us to transfer personal information and/or documents to another service provider, in which case that service provider will be granted the access to your personal data that you expressly authorise us to grant, or otherwise pursuant to an applicable contract between you and the service provider). We require these third parties to implement security measures that are equivalent to the protections specified in this Privacy Policy. Such third parties may be located in or outside of Switzerland.

In addition, we may be required by law or court order to disclose to relevant regulatory, law enforcement and/or other competent authorities certain information about you or about contracts we have with you, unless such information is protected by confidentiality obligations we have to our partners or others. We may also need to share your information to enforce or apply our legal rights.

In connection with the supply of our services and/or products, personal data may also be transferred, if necessary, to countries or territories outside Switzerland, in which case we will provide contractual protection if those territories do not offer an adequate level of data protection comparable to that in Switzerland or the European Economic Area (EEA).

In particular, we may collect and transfer your personal data to countries outside Switzerland: with your consent; to perform a contract with you; or to meet a compelling legitimate interest that we may have, unless your rights and freedoms are overridden.

Aggregate information and statistics for the purpose of monitoring website usage may also be provided by us to third parties. These statistics do not include information that can be used to identify you because the information is anonymised and ‘de-identified’. Further information can be found below in our Cookie Policy.

Communicating via the Internet and sending information to you in other ways necessarily involves your personal information being routed through or processed by third parties. However, we will not sell or distribute your personal information to third parties for them to market products and services to you without your consent. Any information we share with marketing companies, data analytics companies, website developers and similar service providers and their affiliates is solely for the purpose of developing, hosting, managing, operating and maintaining content on our website or otherwise improving our website and how we market the Sauber Group. We ensure in such cases that the information cannot be used to identify you and that the information is anonymised and ‘de-identified’. You can find more information on this in our Cookie Policy.

We use reasonable physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect the personal information we receive from you against loss, misuse and unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. Please note that we are not responsible for the security of any information you transmit over the Internet, or for any information you store, post or provide directly to a third party website that is subject to that third party’s policies. Please be advised that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure and we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. Any transmission of your data using these methods is therefore at your own risk.

A loss of personal data is called a data breach. We are committed to informing you when your personal data is compromised and there is a risk to your rights and freedoms as a result.

4. Where is your data stored?

Unless we expressly inform you otherwise, data processing takes place in Switzerland and the EEA/EU area.

5. How long do we keep your data?

The personal data collected by us in connection with a contractual relationship will be stored or retained at least until the expiry of the statutory retention obligation. After expiry of the respective retention periods, we delete or destroy your personal data completely, unless you have agreed to a longer retention period or have commissioned us with a longer retention period.

If we have acquired your data through an enquiry, for marketing purposes, visiting our website or for similar purposes, we will delete the data obtained in such a situation as soon as the storage of the data is no longer necessary, or we will restrict the processing if there are legal retention obligations.

6. Your rights

You can send corresponding requests to the address at the end of this privacy policy.
