You can visit the LENSVISION website at any time without disclosing your personal details.
When visiting our website, our servers temporarily save each access in a log file. The following data will be collected without your input and stored by us for a maximum of twelve months, until it is deleted automatically:
- the IP address of the inquiring computer
- the date and time the website was accessed
- the name and URL of the requested file
- the website from which our website was accessed
- the operating system of your computer and the browser used
- the country you are accessing from
- the name of your internet access provider
The collection and processing of these details will be carried out for the purpose of enabling the use of our website (establishing a connection), guaranteeing permanent system safety and stability, and enabling our internet offer to be optimised, as well as for statistical purposes. The IP addresses will only be analysed when the network infrastructure of lensvision.ch is attacked and for statistical purposes.
We collect, save and process personal details solely in accordance with the statutory regulations and only when it is necessary to do so for the fulfilment of the contractual obligations between us and the user, or to supply the products on our websites. This also includes the storage of data for any warranty claims once the contract has been fulfilled.
We will also use your details within the framework of the applicable law for our own marketing purposes, to optimise our online offer, make your shopping experience with us more comfortable and individual, and to make customers aware of products that may be of special interest to them.
Moreover, personal details are only collected, processed or used provided that you have given your consent.
Personal details are indications of factual or personal circumstances of an identified or identifiable person and enable their identity to be traced. This includes, for example, your name, telephone number, address, and inventory data you share when you register and create your customer account.
Your personal details will be deleted provided that there are no statutory obligations to archive them and you make a request for them to be deleted, if the data is no longer required for the purpose for which it was stored, or if it may not be stored for any other legal reasons.
4. Use of Your Data for Marketing Purposes
a) Sending of newsletters
When subscribing to the newsletter, your email address will be used for advertising purposes respectively customer specific advertisements at Lensvision or at selected partner shops (see www.lensvision.ch/partner-shops), until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can unsubscribe at any time. We are entitled to assign third parties with the technological handling of advertising activities and have the right to pass on your details for this purpose.
b) Service and product information
When we receive your email address during an order placement for goods at our web shop, we will use your email address to inform you via service and product information emails about similar products that may be of interest to you. However, we will only use your email address for this purpose if you have not disagreed to us doing so. You can disagree at any time.
c) Customer account
For every customer that registers accordingly, we will enable password-protected, direct access to their order details that are stored by us (customer account). Here, you can see details about completed, open and recently dispatched orders, and manage details. You agree to treat personal details confidentially and to not make them accessible to unauthorised persons. We cannot assume any liability for the improper use of passwords, unless we are at fault.
5. Passing on of Information to Third Parties
We disclose your personally identifiable information only, if you have expressly consented, if there is a legal obligation for us to do so, or if it is necessary to enforce our rights, in particular for the enforcement of claims arising from the contractual relationship. In addition, we disclose your data to third parties, insofar as this is necessary prior to the conclusion of a contract or for reasons of implementing a contract. For these purposes, we disclose the data needed to any subsidiaries, transport companies, and other service providers. These service providers use your data, in particular to prepare themselves, if necessary, prior to the conclusion of the contract, as well as to implement a corresponding order, but not for any other purposes.
We also use the services of external service providers who help us provide you with a better customer experience (see also Item 10, Tracking Tools).
6. Transfer of Personal Details Abroad
LENSVISION is entitled to pass on your personal details to third party companies abroad, provided that this is necessary for the execution of the contract, or that this takes place within the framework of the tracking and targeting measures mentioned in Item 10. These are subject to data protection to the same extent as the provider. If the level of data protection in a country is not the same as in Switzerland, we will contractually ensure that your personal details will be protected to the same extent as they are in Switzerland.
7. Encryption of Sensitive Data
We will protect your data transfer by means of a secure SSL connection. SSL (SSL encryption) is a security technology that ensures that your personal details, including credit card details, login details, and your preferred payment method, are transferred safely over the internet. The data is encrypted so that it can only be read by the payment system.
8. Credit Assessment
If we provide a service in advance, for example in the case of a purchase on account, we will obtain a credit report from a credit agency based on mathematical and statistical processes in order to protect our legitimate interests, if necessary. For this, we will provide a credit agency with the personal details required for a credit check and we will use the information we receive about the statistical probability of a payment default in order to make a decision for the drafting, execution or termination of a contractual relationship. The credit report can include probability values (score values) that are calculated based on recognised mathematical and statistical processes and incorporate address details, amongst others, during the calculation. Your legitimate interests will be considered in accordance with statutory regulations.
