4. Source of data
We receive the personal data we process directly from you, from your lawyer or client, from a co-funder and/or from publicly accessible directories. We do not already receive the data when you are using our website.

When you contact us, we will inform you of the specific purpose of data processing, unless you already have the information. Should we wish to process your data for a purpose not mentioned above, we will inform you in advance.
6. Legal basis of data processing
We process your personal data based on the European Data Protection Ordinance (EU-GDPR) and all other relevant laws. The specific legal basis in each individual case depends on the purpose for which we process your data. The legal basis of the processing may be the consent of the data subject, the execution of pre-contractual measures, the performance of a contract, the fulfilment of a legal obligation and/or the legitimate interests of NIVALION AG (e.g. direct marketing to the lawyer or the representative of a company).
7. Recipients of personal data
In addition to our staff, access to the data have as necessary: affiliates, subsidiaries and/or holding companies of NIVALION AG, service providers, e.g. in connection with the provision and maintenance of IT systems, external consultants, experts and co-funders, claimants and their lawyers. Where this is necessary to fulfil contractual or legal obligations, personal data may also be transmitted to other recipients (e.g. supervisory authorities).
The transfer of personal data to countries outside Switzerland and outside the European Union only takes place if it is necessary and the country has been confirmed an appropriate level of data protection by the EU Commission or other appropriate data protection guarantees (e.g. the agreement of EU standard contract clauses or Privacy Shield) exist.
8. Storage period
We store your personal data only for as long and only to the extent necessary for the above-mentioned purposes. If there are legal proof and storage obligations, the storage periods are generally at least 10 years. For the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, personal data may also be stored for
longer (depending on the periods of limitation). If there is a legitimate interest in connection with direct marketing (as with lawyers and representatives of companies), we process your data until you object to the processing.
If you receive advertising from us and no longer wish to receive it, you can send your objection at any time to email@example.com or to our postal address.
9. How do we protect your data?
We take state-of-the-art technical and organisational measures to help protect your data against unauthorised access, accidental or intentional manipulation, loss and destruction. These include access control regulations, user (rights) management, access control, reliability, data availability and many more.
10. What rights do you have about your personal data?
You have the right to information and notification about the personal data stored about you, as well as to correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability and objection to processing.
If we process your data based on a consent given by you, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future. You also have this right if and to the extent that you have given your consent to data processing that goes beyond what is necessary to handle the funding request and, if applicable, the funding contract. The legality of the processing remains unaffected until withdrawal of consent.
For this you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org or our postal address at any time.
If you receive advertising from us and no longer wish to receive it, you can send your objection at any time to email@example.com or our postal address.
You also have the right to lodge a complaint about the processing of your personal data by NIVALION AG with a competent supervisory authority.
We need to ensure that your information is properly collected and, if necessary, updated. If there are changes or you notice that we use your data incorrectly, please inform us at firstname.lastname@example.org or our postal address. Thank you very much.
