THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

When you visit the Leonteq Website, our web server automatically records details about your visit to compile anonymous statistics, for example, website usage statistics (which includes your IP address, the website from which you visit us, the type of browser software used, the Leonteq Website pages that you actually visit including the date and the duration of your visit).

In addition, we collect personal data which you provide through the Leonteq Website, for example when you enter personal details (e.g. name, address, email address, phone/fax number) on a registration page, when you otherwise submit personal data to us in the course of an actual or potential contractual relationship with us, or when you contact us with an enquiry. We may also collect personal data from public sources, including searches via search engines, sector specific newsletters, public registers and social media.

We use your personal data only for the following purposes:

  • To identify your requirements and promote services that may be of interest.
  • To provide and improve our services to you.
  • To manage our relationship with you.
  • To fulfill our legal obligations.
  • To enforce and/or defend any of our legal claims or rights.
  • For the purposes of recruitment.
  • For other legitimate business purposes.

SHARING

Personal data such as name, address, email, phone number, fax number and any other person related information you have communicated to us will not be sold, rented, distributed or otherwise made commercially available to any third party, except as described in this privacy statement. By accepting the Terms of Use of the Leonteq Website and/or by having access to this privacy statement you acknowledge you have read and accepted this privacy statement and have consented to such use of your personal data as described herein.

Managing our relationship with you may entail the transfer of your personal data to other Leonteq offices outside of Switzerland and/or the European Economic Area (“EEA”) and/or allow the information to be accessed by Leonteq personnel outside of Switzerland and/or the EEA. In such case, data protection laws may be different and/or weaker than Switzerland’s and/or the EEA’s data protection standards. To ensure the confidentiality of your personal data we have implemented high security and confidentiality standards.

In principle, your data will not be passed on to third parties except where stated as follows: when sending emails to which you have expressly consented (including materials as needed), we use a service provider who always follows our strict instructions and will only have access to the data needed for this purpose.
