2. Your partners
In general, the organizations of the AMROS Group process personal data of data subjects independently. In principle, the data subject can assume that the organization of the AMROS Group that they are in contact with or associated with is the organization responsible for the processing of their personal data.
Exceptions to this principle are possible. This is particularly the case with regard to the dissemination of newsletters or other marketing initiatives that are implemented for Europe by AMROS.
3. Purposes and principles of the data processing
We process personal data of data subjects based on various principles:
For contract initiation, particularly for the purposes of making an offer and establishing contact by request. For fulfilling contractual obligations and claiming contractual rights from concluded contacts, particularly for the purposes of dispatching ordered products, processing customer inquiries including relevant correspondence, collection purposes, etc. The legal basis for this is an existing or initiated contractual relationship (legal basis within the scope of the GDPR: Art. 6 (1b); For implementing the recruiting process, in the context of applications for positions advertised. The legal basis for this is once again the initiation of a contractual relationship (legal basis within the scope of the GDPR: Art. 6 (1b); For bookkeeping in accordance with applicable law, as well as for fulfilling additional legal requirements and for internal archiving (legal basis within the scope of the GDPR: Art. 6 (1c) and Art. 6 (1f), where applicable); For maintaining the online presence of AMROS. Here, it is particularly worth mentioning the processing of the IP address as a log file for the purposes of operating the website, which lies in the legitimate interest of AMROS (legal basis within the scope of the GDPR: Art. 6 (1f));

5. Rights of data subjects
In connection with the processing of personal data, data subjects are granted the rights outlined below by law. Please be aware that their existence and scope can differ in individual cases depending on the data protection legislation that is specifically applicable: Information: Data subjects have the right to find out from AMROS whether any of their personal data is being processed and, if so, what this personal data may be. Information requests can be submitted for this purpose.
Rectification: Should personal data be incorrect, the data subjects are legally entitled to rectification of this data. Objection: Provided the processing of personal data is based on the legitimate interest of AMROS, data subjects can object to the processing of their personal data. However, this can only occur if you are in a special situation where your personal interest precludes the processing of your personal data. In this case, the mandatory, overriding reasons of AMROS also remain reserved. Please also be aware that data subjects can object to the use of their personal data for direct advertising purposes. Processing that is supported by other principles remains unaffected by the objection.
Withdrawal of consent: If the processing of the personal data is based on a declaration of consent by the data subject, the data subject can withdraw this. Processing that is supported by other principles remains unaffected by the withdrawal of consent. The withdrawal will only be valid for the future. Restriction: Under certain conditions, the data subject can demand the restriction of the processing of their personal data. This can take place if the validity of the data is in doubt, for example. Please be aware that, in certain cases, this can potentially restrict the provision of services by A MROS or render the provision of these services completely impossible.
Data portability: If provided for by law, the data subject can demand return of the personal data that they have submitted to us in a conventional and machine-readable format and continue to use this, subject to conflicting interests that may carry more weight. Erasure: The data subject is legally entitled to have their personal data erased if this is no longer required for the purpose that it was collected for, if there is a legitimate objection or if consent has been withdrawn. In any case, usage for legally required reasons and for assertion, exercising and safeguarding of legal claims remains reserved.
Complaint: We also wish to inform you that, according to the applicable data protection law, data subjects possess a legal right to lodge a complaint with the data protection authority that is responsible for them if necessary, should they not agree with how their personal data is being handled.
6. Other recipients of personal data
AMROS may employ external service providers as contracted data processors, particularly for the provision of services or for organizational purposes. These service providers only process the personal data on behalf of AMROS. Examples of such service providers include distribution partners, external IT service providers, external consultants, external administrative/commercial service providers or other organizations within the AMROS Group. The data protection legislation is maintained. Transfer of personal data to another organization of the AMROS Group may occur if this is desired or if this seems necessary or advisable in the context of a contractual relationship, as well as for the purposes of implementing marketing initiatives.
7. Location of the data processing
In principle, data processing undertaken by AMROS takes places in Switzerland or in the country of the AMROS branch office/subsidiary that is concerned with the specific matter (the “country of origin”). A cross-border disclosure of personal data from the country of origin is possible. For this, the disclosure occurs in countries that have an equivalent data protection standard as the country of origin, or it occurs in the application of appropriate data protection safeguards or in light of the consent of the data subject. If you have any questions regarding this, please feel free to contact us.
8. Duration of storage of personal data
Personal data of data subjects is stored for as long as is necessary for fulfilling the purposes of the processing or for as long as this remains in AMROS’s legitimate interest.
In the context of contractual relationships, the duration of the contractual relationship is binding, along with the duration of applicable guarantee periods and periods of limitation within the meaning of minimum retention periods. In addition, retention periods provided for by law are also binding, particularly for the storage of relevant business documentation.
Personal data that is used for marketing purposes is erased in connection with the cancellation of the specific marketing initiative (e.g. of the newsletter).
