9.2 Transmission of data to the USA

For the purpose of completeness, we would like to point out that in the USA the US authorities employ monitoring measures which generally allow for the storage of all personal data on all persons whose data has been transmitted to the USA from Switzerland. This is done without differentiation, restriction or exemption, on the basis of the pursued aim and without any objective criteria, enabling the US authorities to access the data and subsequently use it for very specific, strictly limited purposes which is used to justify the intervention associated both with the access to this data and its use. We would also like to point out that in the USA there is no legal recourse allowing you to access the data relating to you or to have data corrected or deleted and/or no effective legal protection against the general rights of access of US authorities.

  • in order to use the above-mentioned tracking, advertising and analysis services within the scope of our justified interests;
  • in order to provide the services that you have requested or for which you have given your consent, to the extent specified above;
  • in order to meet our statutory obligations.

We store data connected with the conclusion or performance of a contract for a longer period as this a stipulated requirement of our statutory storage obligations, as contained for example in accounting regulations and tax law. Under these regulations, business correspondence, contracts concluded and receipts must be stored for up to 10 years. Insofar as we no longer require this data for the implementation of the services for you, the data will fundamentally be blocked. This means that the data can then only be used for accounting and tax purposes.

The data will be deleted immediately if they are no longer required to achieve the purpose. The relevant provisions of the Data Protection Act will be observed.

Photo comparison

Please note that for the purpose of access control, a reference photo of the lift ticket holder is taken when passing through a turnstile equipped with a camera for the first time.

The reference photo will be deleted immediately after the lift ticket has expired, the other photos will be deleted within 24 hours after passing through the turnstile.
