Data Privacy - MyEcoHub

Data Protection Policy

Welcome to the website of IG B2B and EcoHub. Unless agreed otherwise in a specific contract, this Data Protection Policy applies to the use of our website as well as the services offered on it. This Data Protection Policy provides you with information about the personal data that are collected when you visit this website. Your use of this website constitutes acceptance of this Data Protection Policy.

IG B2B ascribes great importance to data protection. Because of its statutory obligations, there is already a high degree of legal protection. We collect and process your personal data in compliance with applicable data protection laws and requirements.

As a rule, we actively offer our services only in Switzerland, and they are intended for persons who reside in Switzerland.

Collection of general data and information

Each time a person or an automated system accesses the website, we collect a variety of general data and information. These general data and information are stored in server log files. We may collect data and information referring to (1) the type and version of the browser being used, (2) the operating system being used to access our website, (3) the website from which the accessing system reached our website (known as the referrer), (4) the pages on our website that the accessing system visited, (5) the date and time of day when the website was accessed, (6) the IP address, (7) the accessing system’s internet service provider, and (8) other similar data and information that help prevent attacks on our IT infrastructure.

These data are required in order (1) to correctly display the content of our website, (2) to optimise the content of our website, (3) to ensure that our IT infrastructure and the technology of our website remain operational at all times and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the necessary information in the event of a cyber-attack. In addition, IG B2B may collect these data and information for statistical purposes, as well as analyse them with the objective of increasing data protection and the data security of its IT infrastructure. The collected data and information are processed only for the aforementioned purposes and are stored separately from all personal data provided by the person concerned.

Links to other websites

This website may contain links to websites of other providers. IG B2B has no influence over those websites, their content, offers and availability, or their applicable data protection policies and provisions. It therefore rejects all liability.

Cookies and other service offers

IG B2B may use cookies on its website in order to be able to offer the best possible service and specific information. Cookies contain what is known as a cookie ID, i.e. a unique cookie identifier, which attributes websites and servers to a specific internet browser. The unique cookie ID can recognise and identify a specific internet browser. The purpose of this recognition is to offer an optimal visitor experience to users of this website and to improve the design of the website.

Such information about the use of this website (including your IP address) may be transferred to servers outside of Switzerland and stored there, e.g. in the case of Google Analytics. The use and processing of data stored by other companies, like Google, through cookies is outside the control of IG B2B. It therefore rejects all liability.

IG B2B may use additional services offered by third-party providers in order to incorporate their content and services on the website, such as videos and posts. Such incorporation always presupposes that these third-party providers are able to collect and process the IP address and other information of visitors to this website.

By adjusting the settings in your browser, you can block the use of cookies, request a warning before a cookie is set or subsequently delete cookies. Please be aware that if you block or subsequently delete cookies, you may not be able to use this website to the full extent or view it properly.

Social media / social networks

This website may feature social media plug-ins, which establish a connection with the servers of social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.). By clicking on one of these buttons, you grant your consent to the transmission of certain data to the respective operator of the social network, such as IP address, visit to the website, etc. This transmission of data takes place without the involvement of IG B2B. The data protection policies and provisions of the respective social network are applicable in that case.

This may be handled either by us directly or by a company that specialises in this service.

Communication options

Owing to statutory requirements (imprint obligation), the website contains certain information that enables quick, electronic contact and direct communication, which also includes a general e-mail address. If you contact us using the communication options offered on our website, your contact information and content are used solely for the purpose of handling your enquiry and responding to it.

Access to information and services on this website takes place over the internet and thus over an open network that is accessible to anyone. As a rule, the transmission of your data through this website or using communication methods such as e-mail, SMS or WhatsApp is considered unsecure. IG B2B therefore rejects all liability.

Your rights

Under the Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection, you have various rights with respect to your data. In particular, you have a right to information, correction and destruction (to the extent that the data no longer need to be preserved for statutory reasons). In order to exercise such rights, you normally have to unambiguously prove your identity (e.g. through a copy of your identity card that clearly shows your identity or enables it to be verified). If you would like to assert your rights, please get in touch with us. We will be happy to provide you with further information in this respect.
