Privacy and Personal Data Protection Policy As of 31/03/2020

The protection of your privacy is part of the information provided on our website and is of great importance to Swiss Gifts. Below you will find information on the processing of your personal data, in particular on its use, transmission to third parties, storage and destruction.


Personal data ("data") is defined as all data relating to an identified or identifiable person that you entrust to Association Swiss Gifts, when, for example, you fill in a contact form or a registration form. In general, the necessary data is limited to the following information: surname, first name, address, postal number and city, country, telephone number, e-mail address or date of birth. The site also records your IP address. Swiss Gifts Association also collects data via cookies, for example: IP address, location, navigation data, clicks or links opened and the duration of sessions on our website. Requests to link to your social network accounts are sources of information collected about you. No personal data related to financial transactions is required on our site and therefore is not requested or collected. Information is only sent to you if you have given us permission to do so via a contact form on this site or via our communications. If you wish to change your mind or unsubscribe from our communications, you can let us know at any time, either by e-mail or via the link provided in our communications. In addition, we also collect your data when you apply for a job. Of course, all such data will be deleted within the legal time limits.
