At Spaceafrica LLC (“Spaceafrica” or “we”) we respect your privacy and take protection of personal information very seriously.
The purpose of the present data privacy statement is to inform you on the collection and use of individual data of personal or factual circumstances of a specific or determinable natural person (“personal data”) when visiting our Website.
This declaration of data protection applies exclusively to our website (www.spaceafrica.life) and any subdomain in the format subdomain.spaceafrica.life (“Website”). We assume no responsibility and accept no liability for links accessible from our Website to the websites of third parties. Clicking an external link is your sole responsibility.
1 – User consent
Please note that, when you visit and use our Website, you consent to our processing of your personal data within the framework of this data privacy statement and applicable data protection principles.
2 – Contact person
We are always at your disposal should you have any questions or messages concerning your personal data. You can reach us under:
3 – Anonymous data collection
c/o Fabian Cöllen
Unless stated otherwise in this data privacy statement, you may visit the pages of our Website without downloading any personal data. We do not store any personal data in this connection. In order to improve our services, we merely evaluate statistical data which do not allow us to deduce information concerning your person.
4 – Processing of personal data
When contacting us through our online contact form or directly by e-mail, we collect and process only the following data:
• All information supplied by you specifically on our online contact form or in your correspondence with us (name, address, age, gender, contact details, mandate-specific information, etc.);
• browser version and browser type used;
• date and time of your inquiry or message.
Please note that the aforementioned items are the only personal data which we will process on our website unless this data privacy statement explicitly mentions the processing of any further data. In certain cases, it is possible that we will not collect all such data. As a rule, we will only collect as much personal data as is necessary in order to properly and efficiently process a task.
We do not generate personality profiles on our Website.
Sensitive personal data
Unless you explicitly send us such kind of personal data via our contact form or by e-mail, we do not collect or process any sensitive personal data via our Website (e.g. wages data, personal privacy data, data relating to personal religious or ideological beliefs, health data, etc.).
5 – Using your personal data
Your personal data is processed on our Website only in connection with an inquiry made by you, or in order to correct an error or to improve our online presence, and possibly for internal statistical purposes.
6 – Disclosure to third parties
We are entitled and obliged to supply such data to service providers, who offer their services via our Website, which are necessary in order to enable such service providers to perform the tasks which they must perform under any service agreements entered into with you. Such service providers may only use such data in the same way as we ourselves may use it. We will ensure that service providers do not use the data for anything but the actual processing of a service and that they will not use such data for themselves or disclose them to third parties. For this purpose, we have been provided with the relevant audit and control rights.
Your data will not be disclosed to third parties via the Website without your express consent, except for third party service providers whom we need in order to perform our tasks under an agreement with you (e.g. Swiss Post or other couriers, telecommunication service providers, authorities for debt collection purposes, etc.).
In such cases we shall strictly observe the requirements of applicable data protection laws.
7 – Communication, information and updates
Communication for marketing purposes: We may send you marketing information in relation to our Website, services and products by various communication means. You can unsubscribe from such advertising content by following the instructions provided in the respective communications. Alternatively, you may also unsubscribe from any advertising content by e-mail addressed to email@example.com.
Communication for information and other purposes: We will provide you with information and messages which are important and necessary for all clients and customers, i.e. communications with important information as well as communications which you have requested. You cannot unsubscribe from such communications. However, you may modify the media and the format through which you receive such information.
8 – Transmission of personal data
The data submitted on the contact form are not stored on your computer (no cookie or anything similar). For processing, the server will forward the data you have submitted on your contact form by e-mail. Such e-mails are not encrypted. Use of e-mail is technically not secure; it is possible that e-mails are not delivered. E-mails can cross borders even though the sender and the receiver are in the same country. The confidentiality of e-mails cannot be guaranteed in case of absence of insufficient encryption. Unencrypted e-mails are therefore not suitable for the transfer of confidential information.
By using the contact form or by sending an e-mail, you consent to communication by e-mail in full knowledge of the risks involved or described above.
9 – Storage of personal data
Our Website is hosted by Strato AG, Berlin, Germany.
Personal data collected on the Website in the course of activities on our Website are hosted on servers in Germany. The servers are protected from unauthorized access to the greatest extent possible. Backups are made on a regular basis in order to reduce the risk of data loss to the extent reasonably possible.
To the extent that personal data directly collected and processed is concerned, storage and processing of such data is performed on a protected server infrastructure maintained by a certified IT service provider located in Switzerland (with servers located in Switzerland as well). The servers are protected from unauthorized access to the greatest extent possible. Backups are made regularly in order to reduce the risk of data loss to the extent reasonably possible.
10 – Information, correction
11 – Cancellation and deletion
However, please note that under applicable rules for the legal profession as well as applicable commercial and tax law we are required to retain booking records for a minimum period of 10 business years. Thus, we can neither delete nor process personal data in such records. Your application for deletion therefore merely applies to any future processing of data.
12 – Portability
you have the right to receive your Personal Information, which you have provided to us, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and to have that information transmitted to another organization in certain circumstances.
13 – Complaint with a supervisory authority
In addition to your rights stated above, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you consider that our processing of your Personal Information infringes applicable data protection law.
Please note that Spaceafrica is domiciled in Switzerland and that our website primarily addresses users and customers in Switzerland. Therefore, Swiss privacy law applies. Under current Swiss law, the right to lodge a complaint has not yet been introduced for this specific case. As from the entry into force of the revised Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection, the competent Swiss authority for lodging privacy complaints will be the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner.
