Get Swinto


Dear website visitor,

We are happy that you have shown interest in our enterprise. Data protection is of a high priority for us. The use of the Internet pages of Swinto J.S.C is possible, however, if a data subject wants to use special enterprise services via our websites, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no statutory basis for such processing, we must obtain consent from the data subject.

I. Cookies

Our Internet pages use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser. Many Internet sites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited Internet sites and servers to differentiate the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, we can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting. By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized with the user in mind. Cookies allow us, as previously mentioned, to recognize our website users. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to utilize our website. The website user that uses cookies, e.g. does not have to enter access data each time the website is accessed, because this is taken over by the website, and the cookie is thus stored on the user’s computer system. The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.

II. Collection of general data and information

The website of Swinto collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be:

  1. The browser types and versions used;
  2. The sub-websites;
  3. The website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers);
  4. The operating system used by the accessing system;
  5. The date and time of access to the Internet site;
  6. An Internet protocol address (IP address);
  7. The Internet service provider of the accessing system; and
  8. Any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using these general data and information, Swinto does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to:

  • Deliver the content of our website correctly.
  • Optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement.
  • Ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology; and
  • Provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack.

Therefore, Swinto analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise and ensuring an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

III. Registration on our website

The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of Swinto with the indication of personal data. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by Swinto, and for its own purposes. We may request transfer to one or more processors (e.g., a parcel service) that also uses personal data for an internal purpose which is attributable to Swinto.

By registering on our website, the IP address—assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject—date, and time of the registration are also stored. The storage of this data takes place against the background that this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services, and, if necessary, to make it possible to investigate committed offenses. This data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a statutory obligation to pass on the data, or if the transfer serves the aim of criminal prosecution.

The registration of the data subject, with the voluntary indication of personal data, is intended to enable Swinto to offer the data subject contents or services that may only be offered to registered users due to the nature of the matter in question. Registered persons are free to change the personal data specified during the registration at any time, or to have them completely deleted from the data stock of Swinto.

Swinto, at any time, provide information upon request to each data subject as to what personal data are stored about the data subject. In addition, we shall correct or erase personal data at the request or indication of the data subject, insofar as there are no statutory storage obligations. The following email is available to the data subject in this respect: info@swinto.com.

IV. Contact possibility via the website

Our website contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a e-mail address. If a data subject contacts Swinto by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject are automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to Swinto are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. There is no transfer of this personal data to third parties.
