Principles of data processing at Ascom
You came to this page via a link, because you want to inform yourself about our handling of (your) personal data. In order to fulfill our information requirements according to Art. 12 et seq. of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we would like to present our information on data protection below:

Who is responsible for data processing?
Responsible for the purposes of data protection law is the respective country location of Ascom Holding AG with headquarters at Zugerstrasse 32, 6340 Baar, Switzerland.
You will find further information about our group and the country locations as well as further contact options on our website: https://www.ascom.com/about-us/locations.html

Which data from you are processed by Ascom? And for what purposes?
If we have received data from you, we will only process it for the purposes for which we received or collected it.
Data processing for other purposes can only be considered if the legal requirements to that extent required under Article 6 (4) GDPR are met. In such case, of course, we will observe any information requirements under Art. 13 para. 3 GDPR and Art. 14 para. 4 GDPR.

On what legal basis is personal data being processed?
The legal basis for the processing of personal data is in principle - as far as there are no specific legal provisions - Art. 6 GDPR. Here are the following options in particular:

·         Consent (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR)

·         Data processing for the fulfillment of contracts (Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR)

·         Data processing based on a balance of interests (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR)

·         Data processing to fulfill a legal obligation (Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR)

If personal information is processed by us on the basis of your consent, you have the right to revoke your consent to us at any time with future effect.
If we process data on the basis of a balance of interests, you, as the person concerned, have the right to object to the processing of your personal data, taking into account the requirements of Art. 21 GDPR.

How long is the data stored?
We process the data as long as this is necessary for the purpose.
As far as statutory storage obligations exist - e.g. in commercial or tax law - the personal data concerned are stored for the duration of the retention obligation. After expiry of the retention obligation, it is checked whether there is a further need for processing. If a requirement no longer exists, the data is deleted.

Basically, towards the end of a calendar year, we are reviewing data for further processing. Due to the amount of data, this check is done for specific types of data or purposes of processing.

Of course, you can at any time request information about the stored personal information about you and require a deletion of the data or restriction of processing.


To which recipients will the data be passed on?

A disclosure of your personal data to third parties will only take place, if this is necessary for the execution of the contract with you, the disclosure on the basis of a balance of interests according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR is permitted, we are legally obliged to passing on or you have given consent to this extent.


Where is the data processed?

Your personal data will be processed by us exclusively in data centers of the European Union.


Your rights as "affected" individual

You have the right to information about the personal data we process about you.

In the case of a request for information that is not made in writing, we ask for your understanding that we may then request proof from you that you you are the person for whom you are claiming to be.

Furthermore, you have the right to rectification or deletion or restriction of processing, as far as you are legally entitled.

Furthermore, you have a right to object to the processing within the scope of the legal requirements. The same applies to a right to data portability.
