Privacy Policy

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 any personal data we collect, use, or otherwise process, during visits to our site.

In the course of serving you as an individual client or as a visitor to our website, RepRisk may obtain certain 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 confidentially and 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 relationship with you, you might provide 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. You can update your preferences at any time.

Our website also uses web-analytics tools for website analysis. These tools collect data related to the type of device or browser you are using, your anonymized 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. The information we collect is anonymized and is not shared with the web-analytics tools providers or any other third parties.
