It is important to Swiss Refugee Council that you are informed about how we use and treat your personal data and information and what precautions we take to ensure the confidentiality and security of your data.
1. General information on data protection
Swiss Refugee Council complies with the provisions of Swiss and EU data protection legislation and treats your customer data confidentially.
2. Scope of the processing of personal data
As a matter of principle, we process personal data of our users only to the extent that is necessary to provide a functional website as well as our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users takes place with the consent of the users.
3. Creation of log files
Whenever our website is called up, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer.
The following data is collected and stored in a log file:

- Information about the browser type and version used
- The user's operating system

- Date and time of access
- If a page visitor has reached our website by clicking on a link, the URL of the website on which the link was placed is also saved (so-called referrer address).
The log file is automatically deleted after 30 days. The data it contains is not automatically evaluated in any way. In the event of a problem, it is used solely to detect and correct errors on the website.

The integration of the social media services we use (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) is only done by linking to them.

You can request information about the data we have stored about you and/or have it changed or deleted at any time. The only exception is that the data is required for the fulfilment of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.
