By using our software, websites, services, applications or by otherwise giving us your personal information, you are consenting to our use of your information and accepting the practices described in this Policy.  In some cases, providing information and data is essential for us to provide services.   If you do not agree to this Policy, please do not use our software and/ or websites or give us any of your personal information. 

 

The operative parties referred to in this policy are Company and you, the user of this site and/ or the software.

 

JAMAHOOK AG and certain wholly owned subsidiaries of the same including predecessors, successors, and assigns, are the owners, publishers and/ or operators of this and other various websites and/ or software and are hereinafter referred to collectively as “Company.”

 

In the context of the entry into force of the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on 25 May 2018, regulations apply which may also be applicable to companies domiciled in Switzerland. We comply with these provisions, which provide in particular that private individuals have more control over their personal data. This results in increased obligations for companies to respect data protection. The most important of these rights are listed below. Further details can be found in the legal basis, which can be accessed via the following link: http://eur-lex.europa.eu/eli/reg/2016/679/oj

 

  1. Right to information (Articles 13 and 14 GDPR) 

Where personal data are collected, the data subjects are to be provided with a range of information regarding the collection of data, in particular what data are collected and for what purpose.

 

  1. Right of access by the data subject (Art. 15 GDPR)

According to the GDPR, the person affected by the data processing is entitled to demand a confirmation that personal data are processed by him or that this is not the case. Where data is processed, the GDPR establishes various rights (e.g. the right to obtain a copy of the data).

 

  1. Right to rectification (Article 16 GDPR)

The data subject shall have the right to request the controller to rectify any inaccurate personal data concerning him/her without delay. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject has the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary declaration.

 

  1. Right to erase (“right to be forgotten”) (Art. 17 GDPR) 

The data subject has the right to request that personal data relating to him/her be deleted immediately and the personal data must be deleted immediately if one of the reasons listed in the GDPR applies, for example that the data are no longer necessary for the purpose for which they were collected.

 

  1. Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR) 

In certain cases, the data subject has the right to require the GDPR to restrict the processing of data. If such a restriction is requested, the data may only be retained, but may no longer be processed.

 

  1. Right of notification (Art. 19 GDPR) 

According to the GDPR, all recipients to whom personal data have been disclosed must be informed of any correction or deletion of personal data or any restriction on processing, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort.

 

  1. Right to data transferability (Art. 20 GDPR) 

The data subject has the right to receive the data that he has provided in a structured, common and machine-readable format and has the right to transfer this data to another data controller, for example to exchange the service provider. However, this right can only be exercised if the data processing is based on the consent of the data subject or on a contract.

 

  1. Right to object (Art. 21 GDPR)

The data subject shall also have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to certain processing of personal data relating to him or her, including profiling based on these provisions. Subsequently, the data may no longer be processed, unless the data processor can prove compelling reasons for the processing which are worthy of protection and which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. Where personal data are processed for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning him/her for the purposes of such advertising, including profiling in so far as it is related to such direct marketing.

 

  1. Right to waive an automated decision in individual cases (Art. 22 GDPR) 

In addition, the data subject has the right not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing, including profiling, which has legal effect against him or her or significantly affects him or her in a similar manner.

 

  1. Right to be informed of data protection violations (Art. 34 GDPR) 

Should the provisions on the protection of personal data be violated, the person affected by the violation will be informed, provided that this entails a high risk for personal rights and freedoms.

  1. Special Cases

 

It is our policy not to use or share the information about Users in ways unrelated to those described in this Policy without also providing the User with an opportunity to opt out or otherwise object to such unrelated uses. However, we may disclose information about Users, or information regarding your use of the services or websites accessible through our services, for any reason without notice if, in our sole discretion, we believe that it is reasonable to do so, including, but not limited to:

  1. Electronic Communication 

 

If you provide your information to us or use the services and websites, you will have created a commercial relationship with us.  Even though we currently do not provide Users with promotional advertising materials, your use of the services and websites constitutes your understanding and consent that even unsolicited commercial email sent from us or our affiliates is not unlawful SPAM as that term is defined under the law.

We protect personal data through appropriate technical and organizational security measures and store them on secure servers. The website and software are protected against manipulation by usual measures according to the state of the art and against access, modification or distribution by unauthorized persons. This includes that we take the aspects of data protection into account already in the planning phase of our services (“privacy by design”), and our new products and services are offered with data protection-friendly presetting (“privacy by default”).

 

Nevertheless, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party hackers from illegally obtaining this information.  We take reasonable measures to prevent such breaches of security, but given the resourcefulness of cyber-criminals we are unable to guarantee that our security is completely breach-proof.  You assume the risk of such breaches to the extent that they occur despite our reasonable security measures.

 

Further, other than what is stated hereunder, we do not provide User information to third parties; nor will we sell, rent or provide any of your information to other entities such as Users, or other companies selling services similar to this Company’s services.  The website may contain advertisements that contain or are in the form of banners/ links to third party sites and you understand and acknowledge that such third party sites generally will contain policies and procedures including, but not limited to, terms of use, privacy policy, etc. that are different from ours.  If you access a third party’s site, we encourage you to read and understand such sites’ policies and procedures.
