Data processing & Data protection

Data processing

ISP respects the private and personal sphere of the user and processes the user's personal data, insofar as personal data is to be recorded at the time of a visit on our website, in accordance with the currently valid legal provisions.

When the user visits the ISP website, no personal data (e.g. name, address, telephone number etc.) are recorded without the user's consent. Only personal data that is provided to ISP by the user may be stored. The user will only be asked to enter personal data if he wishes to use the interactive services on the website.

However, ISP points out that personal data or personality profiles (e.g. client profile, investment profile) requiring special protection ("Personal Data") may be collected and processed using applications, forms or questionnaires completed by a user or on the basis of agreements that a user concludes with ISP or when users substantiate or maintain a client relationship with ISP. In particular, ISP collects and processes Personal Data for the following purposes: (i) Complying with statutory obligations, (ii) maintaining the client relationship, especially in respect of providing and marketing services and investments in products and assets by clients, and (iii) improving the quality of products and services. Personal Data will be passed on to ISP Group companies, to third-party service providers when outsourcing services or to authorities and courts in Switzerland and abroad subject to user's consent, or without users' consent insofar as ISP is authorised or obliged to do so on account of statutory or regulatory provisions.

ISP also gathers and analyses anonymous data relating to use of their website, e.g. the number of visits to the site, pages visited, duration of sessions, IP addresses etc. in order to assess the benefit provided by the site. However, data recorded in this way is used exclusively for statistical purposes and it is not forwarded to third parties outside ISP.

ISP also draws attention to the fact that when a user accesses this website, cookies (strings of information sent by a website and stored on the user's computer) can be stored or accessed temporarily on the user's computer. This allows ISP to identify the computer accessing the website and thus to provide navigation shortcuts for the user's benefit. Only a minimum of information is recorded in the cookies used by ISP. By modifying Internet browser settings the user can prevent cookies from being placed on his computer. Depending on the browser settings selected, blocked cookies may reduce the functionality of the website or prevent access to it. ISP accepts no liability for such a restriction of the website.

Furthermore, it is possible that these natural persons and legal entities have rendered, are rendering or will render in the future services for the issuers of such financial products, for example in investment banking, corporate finance or market-making or that they may have previously participated in their management, that they may be doing so now, or that they may do so in the future as either board members or as managers.
