This Privacy Statement explains how SIX collects, uses and discloses (hereinafter referred to together as “processes”) personal user data (hereinafter “Personal Data”) of visitors to this website (hereinafter “User”), and the means by which this is done. The Privacy Statement also describes how SIX safeguards the confidentiality of the Personal Data processed.

Privacy Statement

For the purpose of this Privacy Statement, “SIX” refers to SIX Group Ltd and all of its subsidiaries and branches.

The User agrees to SIX processing Personal Data in accordance with the Privacy Statement. Legal or contractual duties to maintain confidentiality to which SIX is subject in relation to the User's Personal Data are not affected by this Privacy Statement.

SIX may amend the Privacy Statement unilaterally at any time. The most recent version is published online by SIX.

Type of collected Personal Data
SIX processes Personal Data about the User if the latter

  • visits websites of SIX,
  • applies for or uses products, services or information offered by SIX online; this includes, in particular, registration for specific services or web content only accessible by means of a personal login and subscriptions to print media or online newsletters,
  • obtains, installs and/or uses apps of SIX from the relevant app stores, or
  • takes part in a competition.

In selected cases, Personal Data is processed if SIX records telephone calls with Users, whether this be to meet its own legal obligations or for training or quality assurance purposes.

SIX processes the personal data (such as name, gender, address, e-mail address, telephone and fax number) that the user expressly and actively makes available to SIX. This also applies if the user takes part in events of SIX (online or in person). The web server of SIX – and in the case of www.six-structured-products.com the web server of Ariva.de AG – automatically records details of the user's visit (such as IP address, browser type and version, operating system used, originating website, pages accessed, date, length of visit).

Cookies
Your personal data may also be processed by Cookies. Please visit the Cookie Policy for details.

Web analysis
SIX analyses how its websites are used with the help of third-party analysis tools, such as Google Analytics or etracker (hereinafter «Analysis Service Providers»). SIX assumes no responsibility or liability for any data processed by Analysis Service Providers.

Google Analytics
Google Analytics, a web-based analysis service by Google Inc. (hereinafter “Google”), uses cookies, which are saved on the User's computer. The information generated by the cookie concerning their visit is usually sent to and stored on a Google server in the USA. If SIX activates IP anonymization for this website, Google shortens the User's IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other partner states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and anonymized there. Google evaluates the information that has been saved on behalf of Google for the purpose of compiling reports on the website's usage and in order to provide other associated services for SIX. Google may combine the IP address transmitted from the User's browser by Google Analytics with other data that has been collected.

Detailed information on this can be found at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en and https://www.google.com/intl/en/analytics/privacyoverview.html (general information on Google Analytics and data protection). 

Usage and protection of Personal Data

By processing Personal Data according to this Privacy Statement, SIX is able to improve the quality of its products and services.

  • technical management as well as research and further development of websites
  • user administration and marketing
  • user information on the services and products rendered by SIX, provided the User has given their consent for this

The User authorizes SIX to transmit Personal Data to employees, agents or other third parties within or outside the country where the User lives in order to provide services and for the purposes indicated above. Employees, agents and other third parties which have access to Personal Data are required by SIX to ensure compliance with all applicable data protection provisions. Any person who authorizes SIX to access their Personal Data as defined in this Privacy Statement will be made aware of the data security and data protection implications.

SIX protects Personal Data with appropriate physical, electronic and process-related security measures, such as firewalls, personal passwords, encoding and authentication technologies. Personal Data collected via a website owned by SIX will be encrypted during transmission using SSL Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology, which currently provides the best-available security for data transfers.
