Zürisee Investment Partners AG uses so-called tracking technologies such as cookies and tags to collect information such as the above (see: “What information do we collect about you and for what purpose?”) in order to better understand how visitors use the Uvote website. These technologies help us administer the Uvote Website and improve its user experience. For example, we can tell if your computer has connected to us before and see which areas of the Uvote website are most frequently used.

In many cases, you can also control tracking technologies using your browser. Please set up your browser to warn you about and/or accept tracking technologies (such as cookies) if you wish. You can usually find the appropriate options for your browser and instructions on how to use them in your browser’s manual or help file.

How do we handle electronic messages sent to and from Zürisee Investment Partners AG?

All electronic messages sent to or from Zürisee Investment Partners AG are automatically stored in a specially created system (email journaling), which ensures the evidential value of the emails.

Each step of the process and the search criteria used are recorded in a review log. All emails are destroyed at the end of the respective retention period.

What should you consider when sending data over the Internet?

The Internet generally should not be considered a secure environment. Unauthorized third parties may be able to access information that you send over the Internet (for example, to or from the Uvote website or through electronic messages). This may result in the disclosure or alteration of the content of such information or in technical errors. Even if the sender and recipient are in the same country, information sent over the Internet may leave that country and be transferred to a country with less stringent data protection requirements than the country in which you reside.

Please note that we are not responsible or liable for the security of your data while it is being transmitted to Zürisee Investment Partners AG via the Internet.
