Privacy Policy of Leu Numismatik AG

  1. What is this privacy policy about?

Protecting and guaranteeing the security and confidentiality of the data that Leu Numismatik AG receives in the course of its business activities is extremely important to Leu Numismatik AG (hereinafter also we”, “us”). In the course of our business activities, we obtain and process data concerning you or other persons (so-called “third parties”). The data we process relates to information about you and/or facts and things concerning you (“Data”).

The following privacy policy applies to all services, products, websites operated directly and/or indirectly by us (our website”), apps and other services provided by us, our affiliates and our brands. For our services and our business activities, it is necessary to collect, record, organise, arrange, store, adapt, modify, read out, query, use, transmit, analyse, disseminate, delete and/or destroy data, in each case with or without the aid of automated processes (processing” or process”).

We strive to protect the security and confidentiality of data that we receive, obtain from publicly available sources and/or otherwise process in the course of our business.

We process data in accordance with Swiss law. Under certain circumstances foreign law may apply, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union (hereinafter “GDPR”).

We undertake to comply with all relevant legal requirements and, as far as legally possible, also oblige our employees and third parties who process data on our behalf to do so, but without accepting any liability for this, as far as legally possible.

  1. Who is responsible for processing your data?

Leu Numismatik AG, Stadthausstrasse 143, 8400 Winterthur is responsible for the processing of data, unless otherwise communicated in individual cases. Questions and requests regarding the processing of data should be sent in writing to the following address:

Leu Numismatik AG
Stadthausstrasse 143
CH-8400 Winterthur

  1. What data do we process?

We process different categories of data about you. The main categories are as follows:

  • Contract data: This is data that arises in connection with the conclusion or processing of a contract, e.g. information about contracts and the services provided or to be provided, data from the run-up to the conclusion of a contract, the information required or used for processing and information about reactions. We usually store this data for 10 years from the last contract activity, but at least from the end of the contract.
  • Technical data: When you use our website or other electronic offers, we automatically collect the IP address of your terminal device and other technical data to ensure the functionality (ensuring a smooth connection set-up and the best possible use of the website, continuous improvement and security (evaluation of system security and stability)) of these offers. The following data is temporarily stored in log files: IP address of the requesting end terminal, date and time of access, name and URL of the accessed file, website from which the access is made (so-called referrer URL), name of the access provider and general transmitted information about the device type and operating system of your end terminal and the browser type and browser version used (such as the geographical origin, language setting, add-ons used, screen resolution, etc.). We usually store technical data for 26 months. In order to ensure the functionality of these offers, we may also assign an individual code to you or your end terminal (e.g. in the form of a cookie, see section 11). The technical data in itself does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your identity. However, in the context of user accounts, registrations, access controls or the processing of contracts, they may be linked to other categories of data (and thus possibly to your person).
  • Registration data: Certain offers and services (e.g. login areas of our website, newsletter dispatch, etc.) can only be used with a user account or registration, which can be made directly with us or via our external login service providers. In doing so, you must provide us with certain data (double opt-in procedure), and we collect data on the use of the offer or service. Access controls to certain facilities may generate registration data. We usually store registration data for 3 months after the end of the use of the service or the termination of the user account.
  • Communication data: When you contact us via the contact form, email, phone or chat, by letter or other means of communication, we collect the data exchanged between you and us, including your contact details and the boundary data of the communication. If we want or need to establish your identity, we collect further data to identify you (e.g. a copy of an ID). We usually store this data for 3 months from the last exchange with you. This period may be longer insofar as this is necessary for reasons of proof or to comply with legal or contractual requirements, or is technically required. Emails in personal mailboxes and written correspondence are generally retained for at least 10 years.
  • Master data: We refer to the basic data that we require in addition to the contractual data (see below) for the processing of our contractual and other business relationships or for marketing and advertising purposes as master data. This includes, for example, name, contact data and information, e.g. about your role and function, your bank account(s) (particularly relevant for customers who are consignors), your date of birth, customer history, powers of attorney, signature authorisations and declarations of consent. We generally store this data for 10 years from the last exchange with you, but at least from the end of the contract.
  • Other data: We also collect data from you in other situations. In connection with official or judicial proceedings, for example, data is generated (such as files, evidence, etc.) that may also relate to you. The retention period of this data depends on the purpose, and is limited to what is necessary.

Much of the data mentioned in this section 3 is provided by you. Subject to individual cases, you are not obliged to do so. If you wish to enter into contracts with us or make use of our services, you must also provide us with data, in particular master data, contract data and registration data, as part of your contractual obligation under the relevant contract. When using our website, the processing of technical data is unavoidable. If you wish to gain access to certain systems, you must provide us with registration information.

To the extent permitted by law, we also take data from publicly accessible sources (e.g. debt collection registers, land registers, commercial registers, media or the internet incl. social media), or receive data from authorities and from other third parties (such as credit agencies, address dealers, associations, contractual partners, internet analysis services, etc.).

  1. For what purposes do we process your data?

The processing of data by us is carried out for the establishment, management and execution of contractual relationships and in order to be able to offer and perform our services for you in high quality. Furthermore, data is processed for the development, offering, further development and design of our services and products, for internal training purposes and quality control, for the maintenance and development of customer relationships, for expansion into other business areas, for obtaining quotes from insurance companies and other service providers, for advertising and marketing purposes, for preventing, detecting and combating misuse, for responding to justified official enquiries, for the purpose of contract processing, generally for the purpose of other commercial interests of ourselves and/or in connection with credit checks and collection activities, as well as with the enforcement of claims or other legal disputes which concern us or in which we have a legitimate interest or in which we are involved.

We may also process your data for security and access control purposes. In addition, we process your data to comply with laws, directives and recommendations from authorities and internal regulations (“Compliance”).

We also process data for the purposes of our risk management and as part of prudent corporate governance, including business organisation and corporate development.

Furthermore, we process your data for purposes related to communication with you, in particular to respond to enquiries and to assert your rights (section 10) and to contact you in the event of queries.

Further purposes of use of the data may result from the circumstances or from legal obligations, or may be indicated at the time of collection of the data in question.

  1. On what basis do we process your data?

If we ask for your consent for certain processing, we will inform you separately about the corresponding purposes of the processing. You may revoke your consent at any time by written notice with effect for the future; our contact details can be found in section 2. If you have a user account, a revocation or contact with us can also be effected via the relevant website or other service, if applicable. Once we have received notification of the withdrawal of your consent, we will no longer process your data for the purposes to which you originally consented, unless we have another legal basis for doing so. The revocation of your consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.

Where we do not ask you for your consent for processing, we base the processing of your personal data on the fact that the processing is necessary for the initiation or execution of a contract with you (or the entity you represent), or that we or third parties have a legitimate interest in doing so, in particular to pursue the purposes and related objectives described above under section 4 and to be able to implement appropriate measures. Our legitimate interests also include compliance with legal regulations, insofar as this is not already recognised as a legal basis by the respective applicable data protection law. However, this also includes the marketing of our products and services, the interest in better understanding our markets, and the safe and efficient management and further development of our company, including its operations.

  1. To whom do we disclose your data?

We may have the data processed by third parties, including abroad. We take reasonable steps to ensure that these third parties process the data only as we are permitted to do. You hereby expressly authorise us to disclose the data to third parties, including abroad.

In exceptional individual cases (e.g. misuse), data may also be disclosed to third parties for purposes other than those listed in this privacy policy or those provided for by law, provided that applicable law is not violated. We cannot control, guarantee or vouch that these third parties comply with the data protection provisions applicable to us; they process the data for their own purposes and may also do so abroad, where there may be no legal data protection as in Switzerland.

The transfer of data abroad may also occur when data is passed on to third parties, in particular when our services and products are used via social networks or other third-party offers and/or linked to these.

  1. Does your personal data also end up abroad?

As explained in section 6, we also disclose data to other entities. These are not only located in Switzerland. Your data can therefore be processed both in Europe and in the USA; in exceptional cases, however, in any country in the world.

If a recipient is located in a country without adequate legal data protection, we contractually obligate the recipient to comply with the applicable data protection law, unless the recipient is already subject to a legally recognised set of rules to ensure data protection and we cannot rely on an exemption provision. An exception may apply in particular in the case of legal proceedings abroad, but also in cases of overriding public interests or if the processing of a contract requires such disclosure, if you have given your consent or if the data in question has been made generally accessible by you and you have not objected to its processing.

  1. How long do we process your data?

We process your data for as long as our processing purposes, the legal retention periods and our legitimate interests of processing for documentation and evidence purposes require it, or for as long as storage is technically necessary. Further information on the respective storage and processing duration can be found for the individual data categories in section 3. If there are no legal or contractual obligations to the contrary, we will delete or anonymise your data after the storage or processing period has expired as part of our normal processes.

  1. How do we protect your data?

We take reasonable security measures to maintain the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your personal data, to protect it against unauthorised or unlawful processing and to protect against the risks of loss, accidental alteration, accidental disclosure or unauthorised access.

  1. What rights do you have?

Applicable data protection law grants you the right to object to the processing of your data in certain circumstances, in particular that for direct marketing purposes, profiling used for direct marketing and other legitimate interests in processing.

To help you control the processing of your personal data, you also have the following rights in connection with our data processing, depending on the applicable data protection law:

  • the right to request information from us as to whether and what data we are processing about you;
  • the right to have us correct data if it is inaccurate;
  • the right to request the deletion of data;
  • the right to request that we provide certain personal data in a commonly used electronic format or transfer it to another controller;
  • the right to withdraw consent, insofar as our processing is based on your consent;
  • the right to receive, upon request, further information necessary for the exercise of these rights.

If you wish to exercise any of the above rights against us, please contact us in writing; our contact details can be found in section 2. In order for us to exclude misuse, we must identify you (e.g. with a copy of your ID card, if this is not possible otherwise).

Please note that conditions, exceptions or limitations apply to these rights under applicable data protection law (e.g., to protect third parties or trade secrets). We will inform you accordingly if necessary.

If you do not agree with our handling of your rights or data protection, please let us know. In particular, if you are located in the EEA, the United Kingdom or Switzerland, you also have the right to complain to the data protection supervisory authority in your country.
