In the following section we would like to show you what data about you is collected and processed for advertising purposes and how this is done. These data processing operations are all based on a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, whereby our interest lies in particular in direct marketing and the analysis and evaluation of the use of our website.

1 Creation of pseudonymised usage profiles
In order to provide you with personalised services and information on our website (on-site targeting), we use and analyse the data we collect about you when you visit the website. During this processing, so-call cookies may also be used if necessary (for more details see section IV). The analysis of your user behaviour may lead to the creation of a so-called usage profile. Merging the usage data is only carried out with pseudonyms, never with non pseudonymised personal data.
To enable personalised marketing in social networks, we integrate so-called remarketing pixels from Facebook and LinkedIn on the website. If you have an account with one of the social networks included in this site and are logged in at the time of your visit, this pixel links your visit to your account. If you wish to prevent this link, you must log out of your account before visiting the site. You can also make further setting for advertising in the respective social networks in your user profile.
We use so-called retargeting technologies on the website. Your user behaviour on our website will be analysed in order to be able to offer advertising tailored to you. Here your user behaviour is recorded pseudonymously. Most retargeting technologies work with so-called cookies (more information on cookies can be found in section V).
You can prevent re-targeting at any time by rejecting or switching off the relevant cookies in the menu bar of your web browser (for more information on cookies, see section IV). You can also request an opt-out for the above-mentioned additional advertising and re-targeting tools from the Digital Advertising Alliance website at optout.aboutads.info
IV What are cookies and what are they used for?
V What are tracking tools and what are they used for?
On our website we use various additional tracking tools. We use tracking tools to observe your surfing behaviour on our website. This monitoring is carried out for the purpose of designing our website in line with needs and for the continuous optimisation of our website. In this context, pseudonymised user profiles are created and cookies are also used.
You can object to the collection of data by Google Analytics here. As a result of the objection, Google Analytics no longer collects data on the device you used when you submitted your objection on www.lista.com.
VI Is the data collected passed on to third parties?
We only pass on your personal data if you have expressly consented, if there is a legal obligation or if this is necessary for the enforcement of our rights, in particular for the enforcement of claims arising from the relationship between you and Lista AG. In addition, we will pass on your data to third parties as far as this is necessary as part of the use of the website for the provision of the services requested by you and for the analysis of your user behaviour, as described above. Where this is necessary for the above purposes, the data may also be transferred abroad. If our website contains links to third-party websites, Lista AG no longer has influence on the collection, processing, storage or use of personal data by the third party after you click on these links and, to the extent permitted by law, does not assume any responsibility or liability for this.
VII Is data transmitted abroad?
1 General information
2 Data transfers to the USA
For the sake of completeness, we would like to point out that in the USA there are monitoring measures by US authorities which generally allow the storage of all personal data of all persons whose data has been transferred from Switzerland to the USA. This is done without differentiation, restriction or exception on the basis of the objective pursued and without any objective criterion making it possible to limit access to and subsequent use of the data by the US authorities to very specific and strictly limited purposes that are capable of justifying the interference linked both to access to and use of the data. Furthermore, we would like to point out that there are no legal remedies in the United States that would allow them to access, rectify or erase data concerning them, or that there is no effective judicial protection against general access rights of US authorities.
It is our concern to draw your attention to this legal and factual situation so that you can make an appropriately informed decision to consent to the use of your data.
Users residing in an EU member state are advised that the US does not have an adequate level of data protection from the point of view of the European Union, partly because of the issued mentioned in this section.
VIII Data security and confidentiality
We use appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data stored with us against manipulation, partial or complete loss and against unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are being continuously improved according to the latest state of the art.
We also take in-house data protection very seriously. Our employees and the services companies contracted by us have been bound by us to maintain confidentiality and to comply with the provisions of data protection law.
IX Retention of data
We store personal data only as long as necessary
to use the above-mentioned tracking advertising and analysis services as part of our legitimate interest;
to carry out to the extent specified above services that you have requested or for which you have given your consent;
to meet our legal compliance obligations.
Data in connection with entering into or fulfilling a contract will be kept by us for a longer period of time, as this is prescribed by legal retention obligations, for example in accounting rules and tax law. Under these rules, business communication, contracts entered into and accounting records must be kept for up to 10 years. Where we no longer need this data to provide you with services, the data will be generally blocked. This means that the data may then only be used for accounting and tax purposes.
X Your rights
You have the right to receive information free of charge about the personal data we store about you upon request. In addition, you have the right to have incorrect data rectified and the right to have your personal data erased, provided that this does not conflict with any legal obligation to retain data or any permission that allows us to process the data. Under Articles 18 and 21 GDPR, you also have the right to require restriction of data processing and to object to processing. You also have the right to require that we return the data that you have provided to us (right to data portability). Upon request, we will also pass on the data to a third party of your choice. You have the right to receive the data in a commonly used file format.
If you are resident in an EU country, you have the right to lodge a complaint at any time to a data protection supervisory authority.
