Responsibility for the processing of personal data:
Crystal Asset Management AG
8808 Pfäffikon SZ
We point out if there are other responsible parties for the processing of personal data in individual cases.
2. Terms and legal basis
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. A data subject is a person about whom we process personal data.
Processing includes any handling of personal data, regardless of the means and procedures used, such as querying, matching, adapting, archiving, storing, reading, disclosing, procuring, recording, collecting, deleting, disclosing, organizing, storing, modifying, disseminating, linking, destroying and using personal data.
2.2 Legal basis
We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law such as, in particular, the Federal Data Protection Act (Data Protection Act, DPA) and the Data Protection Ordinance (Data Protection Ordinance, DPA).
3. Type, Scope and Purpose
We process those personal data that are necessary to carry out our activities and operations in a durable, user-friendly, secure and reliable manner. In particular, such personal data may fall into the categories of inventory and contact data, browser and device data, content data, meta or edge data and usage data, location data, sales data, and contract and payment data.
We process personal data for the period that is required for the relevant purpose(s) or by law. Personal data whose processing is no longer necessary will be anonymized or deleted.
We may have personal data processed by third parties. We may process personal data jointly with third parties or transfer it to third parties. Such third parties are in particular specialized providers whose services we use. We also guarantee data protection for such third parties.
We process personal data only with the consent of the data subject, unless the processing is permitted for other legal reasons. Processing without consent may be permissible, for example, for the fulfillment of a contract with the data subject and for corresponding pre-contractual measures, in order to protect our overriding legitimate interests, because the processing is evident from the circumstances or after prior information.
In this context, we process in particular information that a data subject provides to us voluntarily when contacting us – for example, by letter, e-mail, instant messaging, contact form, social media or telephone – or when registering for a user account. We may store such information, for example, in an address book or with comparable tools. If we receive data about other persons, the transmitting persons are obligated to ensure data protection with respect to these persons as well as to ensure the accuracy of this personal data.
We also process personal data that we receive from third parties, obtain from publicly available sources or collect in the course of our activities and operations, if and to the extent that such processing is permitted for legal reasons.
4. Personal data abroad
We process personal data basically in Switzerland. However, we may also disclose or export personal data to other countries, in particular to process it or have it processed there.
We may transfer personal data to all states and territories on Earth and elsewhere in the Universe, provided that the law there ensures adequate data protection in accordance with the decision of the Swiss Federal Council.
We may disclose personal data to countries whose laws do not ensure adequate data protection, provided that adequate data protection is ensured for other reasons. Appropriate data protection may be ensured, for example, through appropriate contractual agreements, on the basis of standard data protection clauses or with other appropriate guarantees. Exceptionally, we may export personal data to countries without adequate or appropriate data protection if the special data protection requirements are met, for example the express consent of the data subjects or a direct connection with the conclusion or performance of a contract. We will be happy to provide data subjects with information about any guarantees or provide a copy of any guarantees upon request.
5. Rights of data subjects
5.1 Data Protection Rights
We grant data subjects all claims in accordance with applicable data protection law. In particular, data subjects have the following rights:
- Information: Data subjects may request information as to whether we process personal data about them, and if so, what personal data is involved. Data subjects also receive the information necessary to assert their data protection claims and to ensure transparency. This includes the processed personal data as such, but also, among other things, information on the purpose of processing, the duration of storage, any disclosure or export of data to other countries and the origin of the personal data.
- Correction and restriction: Data subjects may correct inaccurate personal data, complete incomplete data and have the processing of their data restricted.
- Deletion and objection: Data subjects can have personal data deleted (“right to be forgotten”) and object to the processing of their data with effect for the future.
- Data surrender and data transfer: Data subjects can request the surrender of personal data or the transfer of their data to another data controller.
We may suspend, restrict or refuse the exercise of data subjects’ rights to the extent permitted by law. We can inform data subjects of any requirements that must be met in order to exercise their rights under data protection law. For example, we may refuse to provide information in whole or in part with reference to business secrets or the protection of other persons. We may also, for example, refuse to delete personal data in whole or in part with reference to statutory retention obligations.
We may provide for costs for the exercise of rights exceptionally. We inform data subjects in advance of any costs.
We are obliged to take reasonable measures to identify data subjects who request information or assert other rights. Data subjects are obliged to cooperate.
5.2 Right to complain
Data subjects have the right to enforce their data protection claims through legal channels or to lodge a complaint with a competent data protection supervisory authority.
The data protection supervisory authority for private controllers and federal bodies in Switzerland is the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC).
6. Data security
We take appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure data security appropriate to the risk involved. However, we cannot guarantee absolute data security.
Access to our website is made by means of transport encryption (SSL / TLS, in particular with the Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure, abbreviated HTTPS). Most browsers mark transport encryption with a padlock in the address bar.
Our digital communication is subject – as basically any digital communication – to mass surveillance without cause or suspicion and other monitoring by security authorities in Switzerland, the rest of Europe, the United States of America (USA) and other countries. We cannot directly influence the corresponding processing of personal data by secret services, police agencies and other security authorities.
7. Use of the Website
Cookies can be stored in the browser temporarily as “session cookies” or for a certain period of time as so-called permanent cookies. “Session cookies” are automatically deleted when the browser is closed. Permanent cookies have a specific storage period. In particular, cookies enable us to recognize a browser the next time it visits our website and thus, for example, to measure the reach of our website. However, permanent cookies can also be used for online marketing, for example.

7.3 Tracking pixels
We may use tracking pixels on our website. Tracking pixels are also referred to as web beacons. Tracking pixels – including those provided by third parties whose services we use – are small, usually invisible images that are automatically retrieved when you visit our website. Counting pixels can be used to collect the same information as server log files.
8. Third Party Services
We use services of specialized third parties to carry out our activities and operations in a durable, user-friendly, secure and reliable manner. Such services allow us, among other things, to embed features and content on our website. In the case of such embedding, the services used record the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of the users at least temporarily for technically compelling reasons.
For necessary security-related, statistical and technical purposes, third parties whose services we use may process data in connection with our activities and operations in aggregated, anonymized or pseudonymized form. This is, for example, performance or usage data in order to be able to offer the respective service.
