RepRisk appreciates your visit to our website and your interest in our products and services. Your privacy is important to us and we want you to feel comfortable visiting our site. We take care to protect your personal data collected, processed, and used during visits to our site.
In the course of serving you as an individual client or as someone visiting our website, RepRisk may obtain personal information about you (“personally identifiable information” or PII). PII, as used in Swiss privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Obtaining this information is important to our ability to deliver the highest level of service to you, but we also recognize that you expect us to treat this information appropriately.
This policy describes the types of personal information we may collect about you, the purposes for which we use the information, the circumstances in which we may share the information, and the steps that we take to safeguard the information to protect your privacy.
What kind of information does RepRisk collect?
When you visit the RepRisk Website, our web server automatically records details about your visit (for example your IP address, the website from which you visit us, the type of browser software used, the RepRisk Website pages that you actually visit including the date and the duration of your visit).
We collect personal information only when it is voluntarily offered by you and it is reasonably necessary for the purposes of conducting our business. For example, during the course of our business we may collect your name, address, email address, and contact numbers. If necessary, we may ask to you provide additional information from time to time. We may collect this information from you via webpage, mail, email, telephone, text message, or in person.
Our website also uses Google Analytics and other analytics tools for website analysis. These tools collect data related to the device or browser you are using, your IP address, and on-site activities to measure user interactions on our website, to get a sense of where in the world visitors to our website come from, and to help us maintain, improve, and develop our services. Information may be shared with Google for these purposes.
To protect your privacy, we use Google Analytics’ IP masking feature, so that Google Analytics can use only a portion of your IP address, not the entire IP address. If you do not want Google Analytics to be used in your browser, you can opt out by installing the Google Analytics Browser Add-on, available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/Google Analyticsoptout/.
