1. This data protection notice applies to data processing by the attorneys, notaries and employees of
    Mattli & Hew, Promenade 60, 7270 Davos Platz, Bahnhofstrasse 17, 7250 Klosters
    and of
    Mattli & Hew, Dufourstrasse 20, Postfach, 8082 Zürich.
  2. We process personal data (data which directly or indirectly identifies individuals) which we receive from you or third parties involved in the context of the client relationship, or which we collect ourselves.
  3. You or the persons concerned provide us with some of the personal data yourself when you or they contact us by E-Mail or telephone and request our services. This includes, for example, name and contact details as well as information about the role of the data subject in the company or organisation for which you or the respective contact persons work or on whose behalf you or they contact us. We also process personal data which we receive in our correspondence with third parties (in particular clients, counterparties, banks and financial institutions, authorities and courts and their employees or other contact persons) in the context of the client-lawyer relationship (e.g. name, contact details, date of birth, details of employment relationship, income situation, family relationships or state of health). We also collect some personal data ourselves, e.g. from public registers or websites.
  4. We process the above-mentioned types of personal data primarily in order to provide, document and invoice our legal and notarial services.
  5. We also process the contact details of clients or their employees or other contacts for marketing purposes (using any means of communication such as E-Mail, social media, post or telephone) in order to provide information about publications, events, news, services or products that may be of interest.
  6. In order to achieve the purposes described in this data protection notice, it may be necessary for us to share personal data with the following categories of recipients: external service providers, clients, counterparties and their legal representatives, business partners with whom we may need to coordinate the provision of legal services, and public authorities and courts.
  7. We process personal data within our scope of responsibility in Switzerland and in the EU/EEA. However, we may transfer the personal data to recipients (in particular clients, counterparties or authorities) who in turn process the personal data in other countries, including those which do not guarantee a level of data protection comparable to Swiss law. We will do the latter based on consent or standard contractual clauses or, if it is necessary, for the performance of a contract or the enforcement of legal claims.
  8. We only store personal data for as long as our mandate relationship so requires, there is a legal obligation to store and document the data or we have an overriding private or public interest in doing so. We take reasonable and appropriate precautions to protect personal data from loss, unauthorised modification or unauthorised access by third parties. If you provide us with personal data through a third party (e.g. your employees or other contacts), it is up to you to inform them about the handling of personal data by legal service providers (such as us) or other external service providers (e.g. in a privacy policy for employees).
  9. We use external IT service providers and cloud providers with servers in Switzerland to manage our mandates. Furthermore, we use certain IT services and means of communication which may be associated with data security risks (e.g. e-mail, video conferences). It is up to you to inform us of your wish to take special security measures.
  10. We use cookies on our website. You can delete cookies at any time in your internet browser and deactivate the setting of further cookies in the settings of your browser. However, deactivation of cookies may lead to an impairment of functions on our website.
  11. Please note that we use an external service provider for our accounting and related tasks, who has access to your data in connection with our invoicing.
  12. We have a legitimate interest in processing personal data for the purposes stated above. In addition, some processing is also necessary in order to enable us to fulfil our contractual obligations towards you and/or to comply with legal requirements (such as e.g. storage obligations).
  13. Data subjects have the right to information about the personal data stored to them and the purpose of the data processing, the right to have their personal data rectified or deleted or to restrict the processing of their personal data, the right to object to the processing, the right to take legal action before a competent authority and to data transmission/transferability. However, please note that these rights are subject to conditions and exceptions. To the extent permitted or required by law, we may refuse requests to exercise these rights. For example, we may or must retain or otherwise continue to process the personal data for legal reasons despite a request to delete the personal data or restrict processing thereof.
  14. No consent to this data protection notice is required from the client, their employees or other contact persons. The data protection notice is merely information about the type, scope and purpose of the use of personal data by Mattli & Hew. We reserve the right to unilaterally change the content of the aforementioned privacy policy at any time and without notice. We therefore recommend that you consult the data protection notice regularly on our website.
  15. If you have any questions or if you or your employees or other contact persons wish to exercise your or their data protection rights, please contact us via or write to Mattli & Hew, Promenade 60, 7270 Davos Platz.
