  1. Storage of the date

KS Group securely stores your data in a cloud server Hostpoint, which is one of the largest hosting providers in Switzerland and guarantees the highest security.

  1. Retaining of the data

The duration for which we store your personal data is determined by applicable legal requirements for data retention. Once the specified retention period has elapsed, the corresponding data is regularly removed. If your data is essential for fulfilling a contract, initiating a contract, or if we have a legitimate interest in continued storage, we will delete the data when it is no longer necessary for these purposes or when you exercise your right to revoke or object.

We will only keep your personal data for as long as we have a lawful basis to do so, mainly:

  • for as long as it is required for the purpose of processing and compatible purposes, in the case of contracts normally for at least the duration of the contractual relationship;
  • for as long as it is subject to a statutory retention requirement. For example, a ten-year retention period applies to certain data;
  • for as long as we have a legitimate interest in storing it. This may be the case, in particular, if we need personal data to enforce or defend claims, for archiving purposes, and to ensure IT security.

Kindly note that when we gather your personal data in compliance with anti-money laundering regulations, which include identification, screening, and reporting, we will retain this data for ten years following the termination of our relationship. This retention period may be extended if mandated by other laws or for potential legal proceedings.

In other cases, we will typically retain your personal data for a period of ten years after concluding our contractual or other association with you, especially if there is a possibility of any claims arising from the services we provided to you.

  1. Transferring and processing of the personal data outside Switzerland and the European Union

When we share your personal data with third parties, it may be transferred to countries outside of Switzerland and the European Union that offer a sufficient level of data protection. However, if there are no laws in place ensuring this level of protection, we will only disclose personal data abroad if one of the following conditions is met:

  • Adequate Safeguards: We have implemented sufficient safeguards, such as contractual clauses, to ensure a suitable level of protection for the data overseas.
  • Consent: You, as the data subject, have given specific consent for the transfer in the particular case.
  • Contractual Performance: The data transfer is directly related to the conclusion or execution of a contract.
  • Public Interest or Legal Claims: The disclosure is necessary in the specific case to protect an overriding public interest or for establishing, exercising, or enforcing legal claims in court.
  • Life or Physical Integrity: The disclosure is essential to protect the life or physical integrity of the data subject.
  • Public Accessibility: The data subject has made the data publicly accessible and has not expressly prohibited its processing.
  • Same Legal Entity or Company: The disclosure occurs within the same legal entity or company or between legal entities or companies under the same management, provided that all parties involved adhere to data protection regulations ensuring an adequate level of protection.

Under FADP and GDPR, your data protection rights include:

  • the right to request information about your personal data stored by us;
  • the right to have inaccurate or incomplete personal data corrected;

  • the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted;
  • the right to receive certain personal data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format;

  1. Data Security

We take appropriate technical and organizational security measures in order to safeguard your personal data, protect you against unauthorized or unlawful processing activities, and to address the risk of loss, unintentional changes, inadvertent disclosure, or unauthorized access. However, like all companies, we cannot completely rule out data security infringements; certain residual risks are unavoidable.

SSL is a protocol for web browsers and servers that enables authentication and encryption and decryption of data when sent over the Internet.
