This Policy applies to the internet site www.legis-law.ch. Please note that we may refer to other websites that are subject to different data protection rules.
Name and address of the data controller:
Legis Rechtsanwälte Ltd
Forchstrasse 2 / Kreuzplatz

If you have any data protection concerns in connection with our website, you can contact us at the above address or by e-mail.
2. Collection and Processing
Server Log Files
The website automatically saves in its server log files some of the information usually transmitted by the browser, provided that your browser makes this available. This data is not combined with other personal data.
No tracking systems are used (such as e.g. Google Analytics).
You may refuse the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser software; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent.
This website uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from «http://» to «https://» and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
In addition, we use other technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or total loss, destruction or unauthorized access by third parties.
However, we would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
3. General Data Collection
Our internet site collects a range of general data each time you visit. This general data and information is stored in log files on the server. The following data is collected:
The use of this general data does not result in the identification of a specific person. The collection of this data is necessary for technical reasons so that we can show you our internet site and in order to ensure its stability and security.
Passing on to Third Parties
We work with a limited number of trustworthy external service partners (e.g. IT service providers) who have been carefully selected by us. We only disclose data to the service partners to the extent that this is required so that they can provide their services.
We may send you our newsletter by post mail or e-mail as part of our business or contractual relationship with you or if we have got your contact details by other ways. You can cancel the newsletter at any time by sending a message to the data controller's contact details shown in Clause 1 of this Policy.
5. Contact Form
When you send us enquiries via the contact form, we store your information contained in the enquiry form including the contact details which you enter, to enable us to process your enquiry and to answer any follow-up questions. We do not disclose this data to third parties without your consent.
We store the data which you enter into the contact form until you ask us to delete it or withdraw your consent to storage, or until the reason for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. once your enquiry has been dealt with). Mandatory statutory provisions - particularly retention periods - remain unaffected.
6. Your rights
The legal basis for the processing of personal data by us is mainly article 13(2) (a) DPA and article 6(1) (b) GDPR (processing in direct connection with the conclusion or processing of a contract) as well as article 13(1) DPA and article 6(1) (a), (c) and (f) GDPR (consent of the person concerned or justification by law and legitimate interests).
You have the following rights against us regarding your personal data:
Insofar as data processing on our internet site is based on your consent, you can withdraw consent at any time with effect for the future, without giving reasons. Withdrawal must be sent to the data controller at the address indicated in Clause 1 of this Policy.
In order to process your enquiries regarding the exercise of your rights, it may be necessary for you to provide identification so that we can be sure of your identity.
In Switzerland, there is no right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. Where the GDPR applies, there is a right to complain to the competent data protection supervisory authority.
7. Changes to our Policy
We may change this Policy from time to time (for example, if the law changes). Any changes will be immediately posted on the Website and you will be deemed to have accepted the terms of the Policy on your first use of the Website following the alterations. We recommend that you check this page regularly to keep up-to-date.
