No guarantee of compliance with the data protection regulations can be provided for third-party web content that is referred to on our website via tools and links.

Principles
In principle, you may use this website without providing any information about your person. During usage, our server will merely record impersonal usage data. These so-called “log files” record the IP address of your computer or network, the most recently visited website, the browser used, date, time and the downloaded files.

Entry of personal data
Certain services on the site may only be used when personal data is provided. Some services merely require your e-mail address, others require the entry of your last name/first name, address, telephone number and e-mail address and possibly other information. We shall handle such information in compliance with the applicable data protection laws. MOORE STEPHENS SWITZERLAND shall thus treat all personal data carefully and use such information solely for the stated purposes. We shall not disclose your data to third parties nor shall we allow third parties to access your information; nevertheless MOORE STEPHENS SWITZERLAND reserves the right to use your personal data for marketing purposes. You are entitled to correct or delete the personal data you have provided at any time.

Identification of visitors
Occasionally, information which could be used to identify you may be stored on your computer. This information is referred to as “cookies”. These text files, which are stored on your hard drive, do not contain any personal data; however, they make the use of our website easier. For example, cookies enable us to provide you with personalised content without requiring you to register each time you visit.

In this case, however, you will not be able to use certain services.

Security
The provision of personal data via the internet is always associated with risks and no technological system is fully impervious to manipulation or sabotage. MOORE STEPHENS SWITZERLAND shall attempt to take all reasonable steps to prevent unauthorised access to your personal data as well as its illegal usage or falsification, and to minimise the associated risks.

Changes
In view of the technological developments on the internet, MOORE STEPHENS SWITZERLAND is constantly expanding its online services.
