As the operator of this website, Bluespace Ventures AG (hereinafter also referred to as “we”, “us”) takes data protection seriously. In this privacy statement, we therefore disclose the extent to which and for which purpose we collect, process and use data that relates to a specific or identifiable person (hereinafter “personal data”, “data”) when you use this website and/or make contact with us via the email address given on this website.
Under data-protection law, Bluespace Ventures AG is fundamentally responsible for processing personal data in accordance with this privacy statement. There are also groupings in which we are responsible for data processing together with third parties. In these cases, third parties are either independently responsible for processing personal data or jointly responsible with us, if third parties make joint decisions regarding the form or purpose of the data processing concerned. If you have any questions about responsibilities, processing of your personal data or this privacy statement, please contact us:

Personal data can be processed when you use this website or when you contact us via the email address given on this website. The most important categories include contact details (e.g. name and email address), communication data (e.g. content of business communication and time of communication) and technical data. Technical data includes, e.g. IP addresses, information about the operating system or time of the server request and individual identity codes. Technical data alone fundamentally does not provide any information about your identity. However, it can at the most be linked with your personal details in the context of user accounts or registrations.
Additional categories of personal data can be processed in individual cases.
You normally provide us with personal data yourself, e.g. by sending us an email. We can also collect personal data ourselves (e.g. technical data when you use this website). Where permissible, we can also collect personal data from publicly accessible sources (e.g. debt collection register) or obtain it from authorities or other third parties. We do not collect the following categories of data from you directly: Information from public registers, from correspondence and discussions with third parties, information relating to your professional functions and activities or information that we need to conclude or process contracts with you or involving you.
In connection with operating this website, we process technical data for the purposes of system administration, for the functioning of the website itself or specific functions, for analysing and optimising website use and for statistical and security purposes. When you get in contact with us, we process your personal data, in particular communication data, including for the purposes of communicating with you, for contract processing (e.g. initiation, administration and processing of contractual relationships), to adhere to any legal requirements, for protection of interests and for internal administration and support.
We can pass on personal data to partner companies that support the development of our joint venture, Compassana. We can also pass on personal data to third parties whose services we use (e.g. technical service providers). These service providers normally process data as “processors”. In individual cases, we also pass on personal data to other third parties for their own purposes (e.g. in the case of a legal obligation to pass data onto an authority).
We can also forward personal data to third parties who are not necessarily in Switzerland. Your data can therefore be processed both in Europe and, in exceptional cases, in any country in the world. This can also be the case if the recipient is located in Switzerland but the exchange over the internet results in data being forwarded abroad. If a recipient is located in a country without appropriate legal data protection, we contractually require this recipient to comply with data protection. For this purpose, we use the amended standard contractual clauses of the European Commission that can be seen here, provided the recipient is not already subject to a legally recognised set of regulations to ensure data protection and we cannot rely on an exception provision. An exemption can namely apply in the case of legal proceedings abroad, but also in cases of overwhelming public interest or if contract processing requires such declaration, if you have given your consent or if it involves data that you have made generally accessible and whose processing you have not opposed.
We process and store your personal data for as long as it is required for the purpose of processing, the legal retention periods and our legitimate interests or if storage is required for technical reasons. We will delete or anonymize data following expiry of the storage or processing period as part of our normal processes, provided that this is not contrary to any legal or contractual obligations.
Under the applicable data protection law, you have the right to object to the processing of your data under certain circumstances, especially for the purposes of legitimate interest in the processing. Provided that the applicable prerequisites are met and no statutory exemptions are applicable, you also have the following rights: The right to request information from us about whether we process your personal data and which data we process; the right to have incorrect personal data corrected; the right to request deletion of your personal data; the right to request that we give you specific personal data in a common electronic format or that we send it to another person in charge; the right to withdraw consent with effect for the future provided that processing requires consent; the right to receive on request further information that is necessary for exercising these rights. Please note that prerequisites, exemptions and restrictions in accordance with the applicable data protection law apply to these rights. We will inform you about these in individual cases.
If you wish to exercise your rights against us in relation to your personal data, please contact us in writing or by email at the address given under point 1. In order to prevent improper use, we need to be able to identify you. Please also send us a copy of your proof of identity.
You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent data protection authority. The competent data protection authority for Switzerland is the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (www.edoeb.admin.ch).
You can activate or deactivate specific categories of cookies by making the relevant settings in your browser software. Please note that you may not be able to use all of the functions of this website if you block cookies and similar technologies.
We reserve the right to amend this privacy statement, in particular, if data processing changes or if new legal regulations become applicable. Changes to this privacy statement will be published on this page. In general, the version of the privacy statement that was in force when the relevant processing began applies to data processing.
