7. Management of personal data.

According to the Federal Data Protection Act, personal data is "all information relating to an identified or identifiable person" (art. 3. LPD) By data processing is meant "the collection, storage, use, modification, communication, archiving or destruction of data" (art. 3 LPD) In Switzerland, any operation in relation to personal data is subject to the LPD: the data must be processed for the purpose for which it was collected, it must be destroyed once processing has been carried out, the person must have been informed of the purpose of the processing and have consented to it. The accuracy of the data and their security must be guaranteed. The right of access to the data must be guaranteed to the data subject. The Federal Data Protection Act is currently being revised to keep pace with technological and social developments. It is in line with the European data protection reform in order to align itself with the level of protection guaranteed by the new European regulations. The Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) has an information and advisory role.

At the European level, the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will enter into force on 25 May 2018. All companies in the world that process personal data of European citizens are affected by compliance with the Regulation. Switzerland is not directly legally affected by this new legislation and is not obliged to transpose the Regulation into its domestic law, but remains subject to it as a third country. The aim of the RGDP is to strengthen the control of European citizens over the use of their personal data and to unify the regulation for companies. With regard to the transfer of personal data between Switzerland and the USA, the Swiss-US Privacy Shield provides a framework for American companies doing business with Switzerland. It has been in force since April 2017. In Switzerland, there is no "legal ownership of data" because you can only own things and data is not considered as such. There is also no right of ownership over databases, as there is in other countries.

On the occasion of the use of the site be collected: the URL of the links through which the user has accessed the site user's access provider, the user's Internet Protocol (IP) address.

In any event, ELEGANT only collects personal information relating to the user for the purposes of certain services offered by the site. The user provides this information with full knowledge of the facts, in particular when he enters it himself. It is then specified to the user of the site whether or not there is an obligation to provide this information.

No personal information of the user of the site is published without the user's knowledge, exchanged, transferred, ceded or sold in any medium whatsoever to third parties. Only if ELEGANT and its rights were to be bought back would it be possible to pass on this information to the potential buyer, who would in turn be bound by the same obligation to keep and modify the data with regard to the user of the site.
