Data protection / Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy of ifolor Oy

The ifolor team is delighted that you have chosen us to process your photos. Your satisfaction is our top priority. Detailed below is our privacy policy, which we have drawn up so that you can be assured that we handle your photos and personal data correctly. This document explains what personal data (i.e., information related to identified or identifiable persons) we collect from your visit on our web sites and from your orders, and how these are processed and used. We also explain how we use cookies.

Collection of personal data

Whenever you visit our web site, data relating to your access and data required for the operation of our user interfaces and the processing of your request will be temporarily stored on our web servers. This pertains to the connection data of your computer (IP address), the sub-pages you are visiting on our site, date and duration of your visit, recognition of the types of device, operating system and browser and the website or starting point from which you came to visit us.

Otherwise we only process data that you share with us while registering, placing an order or a request, and your image data and further information you send in to us for the processing of your orders. This data collection is not subject to a legal duty of notification with the authorities.

We collect and process such data only insofar as this serves the professional processing of your order and the maintenance of our customer relationship.

Apart from that we process anonymised information about how our visitors use our user interfaces; it helps us to enhance our services and the functions of our web sites, and to adapt them to your needs.

Use and transfers of personal data

We treat your data confidentially as a matter of principle and do not pass them on to third party processors. However, we reserve the possibility to have the data processed by third parties in Switzerland or in EU countries, if so required for the operational processing of your orders. In such case, an adequate level of data protection will be ensured by compliance with the privacy protection laws applicable in Switzerland, the EU and in each such country, and by corresponding contracts with our suppliers. Your image data will be automatically deleted within at most 30 days from completion of your orders.

Social Media Link

You may send us your image data for processing not only from your own devices but also through internet services such as Facebook, OneDrive and Picasa. Doing so, you do not grant us access to your log-in data for those services or to your other data placed in those services. The order software of ifolor is given access solely to your shared data and images and/or your public profile. These services will provide you with more detailed information about what data are thereby made accessible. Please also refer to these services' privacy indications.

You may decide yourself whether or not our software may load cookies onto your computer. You can configure your browser so that cookies will not be accepted, or only from certain web sites, or only after notice. Please observe, however, that the use of certain functions of our website may be restricted or disabled if you decline cookies from our web site.

Web Analytics

We seek to design our web presence as user friendly and efficient as possible. To this end, we apply web analytics services in order to know how many users visit our websites, how often, and in what manner. We do not use this software to collect personal data or individual IP addresses. The data are used only in anonymous and summarised form, for statistical purposes and for the enhancement of the website.

You can object the collection of such data from your visit. For more details about this, please see here: Web Analytics.

Safety of data and communication

Our database containing your personal data is protected at all times by appropriate technical and organisational measures to prevent its loss and abuse. It is stored in a safe operational environment which is not accessible to the public.

While your personal data are being transmitted under certain circumstances, e. g. during log-in and payment processes, they are encrypted by use of the so-called Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. This means that a state-of-the-art encryption method applies to the communication between your computer and ifolor’s servers, provided that your browser supports the SSL (https) technology.

Ifolor is the data controller of the collected personal data. Upon written request, we will provide you with information what personal data we have recorded relating to your person.

If we have doubts about the accuracy of the data made available to us, we will verify its accuracy. Should you notice that the data we have processed is inaccurate or no longer up to date, you are entitled to ask us to rectify your data immediately and at no cost.

You have the right to notify us in writing at any time that you do not wish us to process your personal data any longer; provided that we must reserve our right to process data where necessary (e. g. invoicing data).

We reserve to require an appropriate means of identification from you, prior to processing your requests as mentioned above.
