Fasoon has appropriate technical and organizational measures in place to prevent data loss or access by unauthorized third parties according to the state of the art, as far as possible.

The customer acknowledges that the customer’s data as well as his documents may be disclosed to providers of additional services, financial service providers, payment service providers and other authorized third parties, in particular in connection with the provision of their services and in support cases. The customer agrees to the disclosure of his data to these parties.
As far as Fasoon processes or has access to personal data of the customer in the context of the use of the applications, Fasoon is a data processor for the customer in the sense of data protection regulations.

Fasoon is bound by the customer’s instructions in this regard and will comply with them.
By accepting these General Terms and Conditions, the customer also acknowledges the provisions of the Agreement on Commissioned Data Processing (ADV) in its current version. The current version of the ADV shall apply and can be downloaded in a printable format.
The customer is, concerning data protection, legally responsible for the data and therefore solely entitled to determine his data. He assures that he is authorized to process the data of the persons involved and processes them lawfully in accordance with the relevant provisions. The customer indemnifies Fasoon against any claims of third parties (including data subjects) in case of legal violations, unless Fasoon, within its liability limits, is solely responsible for such violations due to breaches of duty attributable to it.
Fasoon uses contract processors to obtain necessary services such as hosting applications, conducting webinars, providing support or customer satisfaction surveys. These processors are carefully selected and contracted by Fasoon. They are bound by their instructions and are regularly monitored. They receive data only to the extent necessary to provide the specifically agreed processing services. The processing takes place in Switzerland or in a member state of the EU or the EEA, whereby an appropriate level of data protection is ensured. For data processed outside of these states, Fasoon provides appropriate safeguards such as the conclusion of standard data protection clauses for data transfer abroad. Upon request, Fasoon will provide information about its processors.
