Privacy Policy

This privacy policy describes ASA - the Swiss Arbitration Association (“ASA”)’s current policies and practices with regard to personal data collected by ASA through its website, www.arbitration-ch.org, and apps for mobile online platforms (hereinafter referred to collectively as “ASA’s website and apps”). This privacy policy is independent from ASA’s offline personal data collection practices. The term “personal data” refers to personally identifiable information about you, such as your name, birth date, e-mail address or mailing address, and any other information that is identified with you personally, including your individual health information.

Notification of Changes to This Policy

ASA is continually improving and adding new functionality and features to its website and apps as well as improving and adding to our existing products, services, and programs. Because of these ongoing changes, changes in the law and the changing nature of technology, ASA’s data practices will change from time to time. If and when our data practices change, ASA will post the changes on our website to notify you of the changes. We encourage you to check the website frequently.

Personal Data Collected Through www.arbitration-ch.org and ASA apps

The only personal data ASA currently collects through its website and apps is the information you voluntarily give us when you use our sites. For example, you may use the website site to contact ASA with questions and requests. When you fill out a form on our website, you may provide your name and other contact information, including your company’s name, your e-mail address, and your mailing address or the mailing address of your company or other personal information.

Use of Personal Data Collected Through the ASA website and apps

ASA uses the personal data information you provide to answer the query you will have posted through the site. ASA also uses this information to help us improve the content and functionality of our website, to better understand our clients and markets, and to improve our services. ASA may use this information to contact you in the future to tell you about products or services we believe will be of interest to you.

Similarly, we may provide “subscription” e-mail services. For all such services, we will provide an opportunity to “opt-out” of, or cancel, the subscription.

Member profiles

You expressly consent that any information provided as part of a profile meant to be published on the ASA website and/or app is intended for broad public dissemination.

Anonymous Data Collected Through ASA website and apps

In addition to the information you provide when you use our website and apps, ASA uses technology to collect anonymous information about the use of our website and apps. For example, we use technology to track how many visitors access our website or apps, the date and time of their visit, the length of their stay, and which pages they view. We also use technology to determine which web browsers or mobile platforms our visitors use and the address from which they accessed our sites (for example, if they connected to the ASA website by clicking on an ad).

This technology does not identify you personally. It simply enables us to compile statistics about our visitors and their use of our sites and apps. ASA uses this anonymous data and shares it with third parties to improve the content and functionality of our website, to better understand our clients and markets, and to improve our services.

Disclosure of Your Personal Data

ASA may share some or all of the personal data collected through this website with its subcontractors, who use this data in accordance with this Privacy Policy in order to achieve the purposes for which you delivered to us your personal data. In addition, there may be some other, limited circumstances in which ASA may share or transfer the personal data in our databases, for example, to comply with a legal requirement, for the administration of justice, to protect your vital interests, or in the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution, or similar event. While no method of data transmission is guaranteed against unlawful third party interception or other misuse, ASA uses commercially reasonable efforts to ensure protection of your data including industry-standard encryption and offline security methods in our physical facilities.
