Swisscanto may also outsource divisions, individual value-creating steps of divisions and/or services (e.g. benefits settlement, IT, contract administration, and product development) in part or in full to third-parties in Switzerland or abroad. In this case, this will also affect the processing of personal data. Swisscanto takes great care to ensure that your data is protected from unauthorized access, loss or misuse.

The data may be passed on to the following categories of third-parties both within Switzerland and abroad:

Based on your consent for the purpose of checking insurance coverage, these persons are explicitly released from their duty to observe confidentiality in respect of Swisscanto and the processor.

Your personal data is only passed on to processors abroad if they are subject to adequate data protection laws.
