SecuritySwiss Appraisal has taken strong measures to protect security of your personal information and to ensure that your choice for its intended use are honored. We take strong precautions to protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration or destruction.
Your personal information is never shared outside the company without your permission, except under conditions explained above. Inside the company, data is stored in password-controlled servers with limited access. Your information may be stored and processed in Switzerland or any other country where SRG Holding, SA (Geneva), its subsidiaries, affiliates or agents are located.
You also have a significant role in protecting your information. No one can see or edit your personal information without knowing your user name and password, so do not share these with others.
Electronic product registrationWhen you buy and install a new product, we may ask you to register your purchase electronically. When you register, we merge your registration information with any information you have already left with us (we call that information your personal profile). If you have not previously registered with us, we create a personal profile for you from your product registration information. If you ever want to review or update that information, you can visit the Profile Center, click on Update Profile, and edit Personal Information in your profile. If you have not created a Registration ID yet, we will ask you to do that. This ensures that only you can access your information.
Customer profilesAs mentioned above, every registered customer has a unique personal profile. Each profile is assigned a unique personal identification number, which helps us to ensure that only you can access your profile.
When you register, we create your profile, assign a personal identification number, then send this personal identification number back to your hard drive in the form of a cookie, which is a very small bit of code. This code is uniquely yours. It is your passport to seamless travel across www.swissap.com, allowing you to download free software, order free newsletters and visit premium sites without having to fill out registration forms with information you have already provided. Even if you switch computers, you will not have to re-register just use your Registration ID to identify yourself.
What we do with the information you shareWhen you join us, you provide us with your contact information, including your name and email address. We use this information to send you updates about your order, questionnaires to measure your satisfaction with our service and announcements about new services that we offer. When you order from us, we ask for your credit card number and billing address. We use this information only to bill you for the product(s) you order at that time. For your convenience, we save billing information in case you want to order from us again, but we do not use this information again without your permission.
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including packaging, mailing and delivering purchases, answering customers' questions about products or services, sending postal mail and processing event registration. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the products and services, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
Swiss Appraisal will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Swiss Appraisal or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Swiss Appraisal and its family of Websites, and, (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Swiss Appraisal, its Websites or the public.
