3. What we collect your data for and how we use your data

Certain personal details are collected in order to ensure that we can provide the website to you without errors. Other personal data are used for analysing your browsing behaviour. These analyses help us optimize our website. We also use these data for our customer services and technical administration as well as advertising and marketing purposes.

We only collect, process, and use personal data to the extent necessary for the establishment, substance or modification of the legal relationship.

We delete the personal data we collected if you revoke your consent; the legal retention periods remain unaffected by this. For more information about consent revocation and deletion of personal data, please have a look at “Section 6: What rights you have over your data” of this privacy policy.

Comments and Contact Form

When you send us an enquiry using the contact form or email, or when you leave a comment, we store your details from the contact form, email or comment including your contact details in order to process the enquiry or comment, and in case there are any follow-up queries/comments. We do not pass on these data without your consent.

The details you enter in the contact form remain on our systems until you request they be deleted or until the reason for storing the data ceases to exist (e.g. once your enquiry has been processed). The legal retention periods remain unaffected by this.

The same applies to comments you leave on our Website. The comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely for us to recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically.

4. How and with whom we share your data

We share information only when needed for legitimate business or legal purpose, and then only with recipients who will protect it.

We may use information collected from you for the purpose of informing other prospective website visitors, such as sharing a comment in an email newsletter, social media post, or other marketing materials.

We may also use personal information to comply with legal obligations. Where required to obey the law, such as in response to a legal process, we will disclose your personal information. We also reserve the right to use your personal information to exercise or defend legal claims.

Furthermore, your comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

5. How long we store your data

We store your personal data for as long as necessary for the purposes for which they were captured but no longer than we are permitted to by law.

For example, if you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

We will delete your personal data when they are no longer needed, and at the latest at the end of the legally prescribed retention period.

6. What rights you have over your data

Please note that this section may only apply to EU and Swiss citizens.

Based on Article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution and the data protection regulations of the Federal Government (Data Protection Act, DSG) and in accordance with the EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), every person is entitled to the protection of their privacy and to protection against misuse of their personal data.

On request, we will inform you whether and which personal data about you are stored (Article 15 GDPR), in particular the processing purposes, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data has been disclosed, the planned storage period, the right of rectification, deletion, limitation of processing or opposition, the existence of a right of appeal, as well as the origin of their data.

You also have the right to correct any incorrectly collected personal data or to complete incomplete data (Art. 16 GDPR). Furthermore, you have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your data, provided that the legal conditions for doing so are met (Art. 18 GDPR). You have the right to receive the personal data relating to you in a structured, common, and machine-readable format or to request the transfer to another person responsible (Art. 20 GDPR). In addition, you are entitled to the so-called “right to be forgotten”. You can request the deletion of your personal data from us, provided that the legal prerequisites exist (Art. 17 GDPR). Regardless of this, your personal data will be automatically deleted by us if the purpose of the data collection has been omitted or the data processing has been unlawful.

In accordance with Art. 7 GDPR, you have the right to revoke your once given consent to us at any time for any reason. You can do so by contacting us via the contact information at the bottom of this page. As a result, we are no longer allowed to continue the data processing based on this consent. However, the data processing already done remains unaffected by this revocation of consent.

You also have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time, provided that a right of objection is provided for by law. In the case of an effective revocation, your personal data will also be automatically deleted by us (Article 21 GDPR). If you would like to exercise your right of revocation or objection, it is sufficient to send an e-mail to the e-mail address listed at the end of this privacy policy. In case of violations of the data protection regulations you have acc. Art. 77 DSGVO the possibility to file a complaint with a supervisory authority.

On what legal basis do we collect and process your data?

The legal basis for collecting and processing your personal data depends on the respective purpose of the processing in each individual case. Potential legal bases include:
  1. Safeguarding our legitimate interests, provided that your interests, basic rights, and fundamental freedom are not unreasonably affected;
  2. Your consent at the time your personal data are captured. You can revoke your consent at any time. An informal message by e-mail or through the contact form is sufficient. The legality of the data processing already done remains unaffected by this.

7. Additional information

How we protect your data

We have taken appropriate technical and organizational measures to prevent unauthorized or illegal access to your personal data. Because we cannot guarantee full data security for communication by e-mail or through the contact form, we recommend that you send confidential information through a secure means of transmission.

For security reasons, our Website uses SSL encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line in the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and the lock icon on the URL bar.

Children below the age of 16

Our Website is not intended for the use of individuals under the age of 16, and we do not knowingly collect or solicit information online from individuals under the age of 16. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 16 without parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under the age of 16, please contact us through the channels listed at the end of this document.

8. Governing Law

The legal relationship between you and Nina Kathe Fit is subject to Swiss law only. The provisions of Switzerland’s Federal Code on Private International Law do not apply. The sole place of jurisdiction for all disputes between users and Nina Kathe Fit is Bern, Switzerland.
