Collection and processing of personal data
We primarily process personal data that we receive from contracting parties in the course of our relationship with them and other persons involved in it, or that we collect in the course of operating our websites.
To the extent permitted, we also take certain data from publicly available sources or receive such data from authorities and other third parties.
When accessing our websites, the following data is stored in log files: IP address, date, time, browser request and general transmitted information about the operating system or browser. This usage data forms the basis for statistical, anonymous evaluations so that trends can be identified, which Stiftung Liste Basel can use to improve its services accordingly.
Purposes of data processing and legal basis
We use the personal data we collect primarily to inform the public about our work (including via newsletters) and with regard to the conclusion and execution of contracts with our partners, particularly in the context of the implementation of the fair as well as to comply with our legal obligations at home and abroad.
If you work for a contractual partner, your personal data may of course also be affected in this capacity.
Insofar as you have given us consent to process your personal data for certain purposes (for example, when you register to receive newsletters), we process your personal data within the scope of and based on this consent, insofar as we have no other legal basis and we require such a basis. Consent given can be revoked at any time, but this has no effect on data processing that has already taken place.
Cookies/tracking and other technologies related to the use of our websites
We typically use "cookies" and similar technologies on our websites to identify your browser or device. A cookie is a small file that is sent to your computer or automatically stored on your computer or mobile device by the web browser you are using when you visit our websites. This allows us to recognise you when you return to those websites, even if we do not know who you are. In addition to cookies that are only used during a session and deleted after your website visit ("session cookies"), cookies can also be used to store user settings and other information for a certain period of time (e.g. two years) ("permanent cookies"). However, you can set your browser to reject cookies, store them for one session only, or otherwise delete them early. Most browsers are pre-set to accept cookies. We use persistent cookies so that we can better understand how you use our websites.
We also include visible and invisible image elements in some of our newsletters and other marketing emails, where permitted, that allow us to determine if and when you have opened the email by retrieving them from our servers so that we can measure and better understand how you use our offers and tailor them to you here as well. You can block this in your email program; most are pre-set to do so.
By using our websites and agreeing to receive newsletters and other marketing emails, you consent to the use of these techniques. If you do not want this, then you must set your browser and/or email program accordingly.
We sometimes use Google Analytics or similar services on our websites. This is a service provided by third parties that may be located in any country in the world (in the case of Google Analytics, it is Google Ireland [based in Ireland], which relies on Google LLC [based in the USA] as an order processor [both "Google"], www.google.com), with which we can measure and evaluate the use of the websites (not on a personal basis). Permanent cookies set by the service provider are also used for this purpose. We have configured the service so that the IP addresses of visitors are shortened by Google in Europe before being forwarded to the USA and thus cannot be traced. We have turned off the "Data Forwarding" and "Signals" settings. Although we can assume that the information we share with Google is not personal data for Google, it is possible that Google can draw conclusions about the identity of visitors from this data for its own purposes, create personal profiles and link this data to the Google accounts of these individuals. Insofar as you have registered with the service provider yourself, the service provider also knows you. The processing of your personal data by the service provider then takes place under the responsibility of the service provider in accordance with its data protection provisions. The service provider only informs us how our respective websites are used (no information about you personally).
Social media plug-ins
We use so-called plug-ins from social networks such as Facebook, YouTube and Instagram on our websites. This is apparent to you in each case (typically via corresponding icons). We have configured these elements so that they are disabled by default. If you activate them (by clicking on them), the operators of the respective social networks can register that you are on our website and can use this information for their purposes. The processing of your personal data is then the responsibility of this operator according to its data protection regulations. We do not receive any information about you from them.
Data transfer and data transmission abroad
We also disclose data to third parties within the scope of our business activities and purposes, to the extent permitted and deemed appropriate, either because they process it for us or because they want to use it for their own purposes. In particular, this concerns the following entities (collectively, “recipients”): our service providers, including contract processors (such as IT providers); exhibitors and other contractual partners; the media; the public, including visitors to our websites and social media accounts; associations, organisations and other bodies; and other parties in potential or actual legal proceedings.
These recipients are partly domiciled in Switzerland, but may also be located abroad. Consequently, you must expect the transfer of your data to all countries.
If a recipient is located in a country without adequate legal data protection, we contractually oblige the recipient to comply with the applicable data protection (for this purpose, we use the revised standard contractual clauses of the European Commission, which can be accessed here: https://eur-lex.europa.eu/eli/dec_impl/2021/914/oj?), unless the recipient is already subject to a legally recognised set of rules to ensure data protection and we cannot rely on an exception provision. An exception may apply in particular in the case of legal proceedings abroad, but also in cases of overriding public interests or if the performance of a contract requires such disclosure, if you have consented or if it is a matter of data made generally available by you, the processing of which you have not objected to.
Duration of the retention of personal data
We process and store your personal data as long as it is necessary for the fulfilment of our contractual and legal obligations or otherwise the purposes pursued with the processing, for example, for the duration of the entire business relationship (from the initiation to the processing to the termination of a contract) and beyond that in accordance with the statutory retention and documentation obligations. In this context, it is possible that personal data will be retained for the time during which claims can be asserted against our company and insofar as we are otherwise legally obligated to do so or legitimate business interests require this (e.g. for evidence and documentation purposes).
As soon as your personal data is no longer required for the aforementioned purposes, it will be deleted or anonymised as far as possible. For operational data (e.g. system logs), shorter retention periods of 12 months or less generally apply.
We take appropriate technical and organisational security precautions to protect your personal data from unauthorised access and misuse, such as issuing instructions, training, access controls and restrictions, encryption of data carriers, etc.
Rights of the data subject
Within the scope of the data protection law applicable to you and insofar as provided therein, you have the right to information, correction and deletion; to restrict data processing; and to object to our data processing or the release of certain personal data for the purpose of transfer to another entity (so-called “data portability”). Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The exercise of such rights usually requires that you clearly prove your identity (e.g. by means of a copy of your ID card, the ID card should be clear and your identity should be able to be verified). To exercise your rights, you can contact us at the email address provided.
In addition, every data subject has the right to enforce his or her claims in court or to lodge a complaint with the competent data protection authority. The competent data protection authority in Switzerland is the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (http://www.edoeb.admin.ch).
Please note that we reserve the right to assert the restrictions provided for by law on our part, for example if we are obliged to retain or process certain data, have an overriding interest in doing so (insofar as we are entitled to rely on this) or require it for the assertion of claims. If you incur costs, we will inform you in advance.
