Preamble

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect on May 25, 2018 and completements the legislation on the protection of personal data. Personal data is any information related to an identified natural person or one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in reference to an identification number or to one or more elements that are specific to them (first name, last name, address, email, phone number, contract number, CB number, …).  A processing of personal data means any operation on this type of data (collection, storage, transmission, deletion, …), whether it is on paper or digital. The person responsible of data processing determines the purposes of each processing and the means to achieve those purposes.  

For Brechbühl School, the protection of your data is a priority. Moreover, for the sake of transparency, this Privacy Policy has the particular purpose of explaining why your personal data is collected and processed by Brechbühl School, in its capacity as data controller; how this data is treated, what rights you have over your data and how can you exercise these rights.

Brechbühl School reserves the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time. Any changes will take effect immediately.

The legal basis for this processing relies on your contractual relationship with the Brechbühl School and/or on the legal or regulatory obligations of Brechbühl School or on your consent regarding commercial prospecting processing, which you can withdraw at any time by sending us an email to the following email address: admin@brechbuhl.ch

In general, Brechbühl School does not process your data for purposes incompatible with those for which they were collected, unless you have given prior consent.

5. How long is your data kept?

Your data is kept by Brechbühl School during the necessary time to achieve the purposes referred to in point 1, plus the statutory limitation periods.

Data used for commercial prospecting may also be kept until the withdrawal of consent by the concerned person, or by default, 3 years starting the last contact made between the Client/prospect and the School. At the end of this period, Brechbühl School will contact you to determine if you wish receiving commercial solicitations.

For more information on the periods of your data conservation, you can contact the DPO of Brechbühl School: admin@brechbuhl.ch
