! Attention, the following text is not a privacy statement or legal advice, but is only a generic recommendation:
A privacy statement is a statement about how your site collects, uses, discloses and manages your site visitors' information. Swisscom cannot offer you legal advice for the preparation of a data protection declaration, as each website is individual. In the net there are numerous data privacy statement generators (Swissanwalt.ch / Dr. Schwenke), which can help you with the production of a data privacy statement. Since you should currently also consider local law in Switzerland together with the GDPR if necessary, we urgently recommend that you consult legal support from the Swiss Bar Association when preparing a data privacy statement. In principle, the following elements in particular should be taken into account in your data protection declaration:
- Purpose(s) of data processing
- Name and contact details of the person responsible and the data protection officer
- Legal basis of data processing
- The recipients of the data
- The storage period of the data
- If applicable, the extent to which you disclose your data to third parties (possibly in a third country or internationally).
- Right to information and/or deletion of data
- Declaration of the right of appeal to the data protection authority
- Possibly the reference to Google Analytics
Further information about privacy and GDPR is available in our online FAQs.
