Terms & Conditions

This statement sets out our privacy policy, in particular the processing of personal data collected through our website or online services, or more generally in connection with the services we provide. We collect and process your personal data with the utmost care and in compliance with the applicable legal provisions; processing is limited to what is strictly necessary and only for the purposes described in this statement. We will only store your personal data for as long as it is necessary to provide our services or as required by law. In close cooperation with our hosting providers, we make every effort to protect our databases from external intrusion, loss, misuse and falsification. This statement is based on the European Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Although the GDPR is an EU Regulation, it is of great importance. Swiss data protection law is strongly influenced by EU law, companies outside the EU or EEA are required to comply with the GDPR in certain cases.


Collecting and processing personal data

We primarily process personal data that we collect in connection with registrations for seminars and conferences organised by the Swiss Aesthetic Surgery Society.


Purpose of data processing

The data collected is used solely by the members of the Committee to facilitate the organisation and running of seminars and conferences organised by SWAESS. Insofar as you give us your consent to process your personal data for specific purposes (registration for seminars and/or conferences), we process your personal data within the framework and based on this consent. A given consent can be revoked at any time; however, such revocation will have no effect on the data already processed.



On our websites, we use "cookies" and other similar techniques to identify your browser or device. A cookie is a small file that is sent to your computer or stored automatically on your computer or mobile device by the web browser you use when you visit our website. When you visit the same website again, we can recognise you, even if we do not know who you are. In addition to cookies that are only used during a session and are deleted after you have visited the site ("session cookies"), cookies that save visitor settings and other information for a period of time may also be used ("permanent cookies"). However, you can set your browser to reject cookies and save them only for a session and delete them early. When you deactivate cookies, certain functions may no longer work. However, most browsers are pre-configured to accept cookies.


Transfer of data to a third party

Your personal data will not be passed on, sold or transferred in any way to third     parties.


Length of data retention

We process and store your personal data as long as it is necessary for the purposes of the processing.
