3. What data we collect on our website

Who is responsible for the data collection on this website?
Data processing on this website is carried out by the website owner. You can find the contact details of the website owner in the imprint of this website.

How do we collect your data?
On the one hand, your data is collected when you provide it to us. For example, you enter this data when registering on the website and when registering for our events. Data that you submit to ISACA Global as part of your membership in the ISACA network is not transferred to our website.
Other data is automatically collected by our IT systems when you visit the website. This is mainly technical data (e.g. internet browser, operating system or time of page view). This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.

What do we use your data for?
The data is collected and used for the provision of our services within the context of the events organised by the ISACA Switzerland Chapter and for the distribution of our newsletter. Other data may be used in anonymous form to analyse your user behaviour.

Registration on this website
You can register on our website in order to use additional functions on the site. We only use the data you enter for using the particular offer or service for which you have registered. The mandatory information requested during registration must be provided in full. Otherwise, we will reject the registration.
As a member of the ISACA Switzerland Chapter, registration gives you access to information in the members' area. You will also receive our regular newsletter at the e-mail address you have entered. You can change your password and e-mail address at any time.
The data collected when registering will be stored by us for as long as you are registered on our website and will then be deleted. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.

Registration for our Events
If you register for one of our events, your details from the application form, including the contact details you provide there, will be stored by us for processing your registration and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
The data you enter will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your enquiry). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

Third-party analysis tools
We currently do not use any tools to record and analyse your surfing behaviour.

SSL or TLS Encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, third parties cannot read the data you transmit to us.

Some of the Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain malware. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
The cookies we use exclusively are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. No other cookies are used.

We use the OpenStreetMap (OSM) map service. The provider is the Open Street Map Foundation (OSMF), 132 Maney Hill Road, Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, B72 1JU, United Kingdom.
When you visit a website on which OpenStreetMap is integrated, your IP address and other information about your behaviour on this website is passed on to the OSMF. OpenStreetMap may store cookies in your browser or use similar recognition technologies.
Furthermore, your location may be recorded if you have allowed this in your device settings, e.g. on your cell phone. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transmission. Details can be found in the OpenStreetMap data protection declaration under the following link:
The use of OpenStreetMap is in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers and an easy location of the places indicated by us on the website. This represents a legitimate interest. If a corresponding consent has been requested, (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), the processing is carried out exclusively based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO; the consent can be revoked at any time.
