Data Protection


1. General

Your privacy is very important to Eurojuris. We want to process your personal data in a legal, correct and transparent way. This privacy policy explains what personal data we collect and process. We comply with the requirements of the Swiss Federal Law on Data Protection (FADP). However, this Privacy Policy is also based on the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), insofar as this Regulation is relevant to us at all. The provisions of the GDPR only apply in relation to users from the EU area.

We recommend that you read this information with care, so that you know precisely what we use your personal data for. This privacy policy also contains more information about your privacy rights and how to exercise them.

2. Who is responsible for this Privacy Policy?

Eurojuris Switzerland, Elisabethenstrasse 15, 4051 Basel is the one responsible for this privacy policy. Please email us with any questions and/or comments at

3. Amendment and update

We may amend the privacy policy at any time, for example within the context of changes to our services or the legislation in effect.

Below, you will find the version number and issue date. The valid version can be found on our website

4.Which personal data does Eurojuris collect?

We register all personal data which are necessary to offer you our services. We hereby respect the principle of minimum data processing.

After all, Eurojuris needs to identify, contact and advise or assist you in legal searches.

Visitors of the website

If you are a visitor of our website and you want further information about our services, your name and email address are asked to be able to identify and contact you.

At the time that additional personal data is requested, it will always be communicated transparently for which additional personal data will be used.

Eurojuris can obtain data from third parties about the visitor if he has made them public by mentioning on a website, blog, or via a public accessible social media profile.

5. What are we using the collected personal data for?

5.1. Visitors of the website

We collect your personal data in order:

  • To identify you;
  • To contact you;
  • To be able to provide our services;
  • To be able to analyse and improve our services;
  • To send you newsletters with current (legal) information;
  • To keep you informed of our product range (Direct Marketing);

Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties.

5.2 Members

If you are a member of Eurojuris, your personal data will be used:

  • To fulfil a member database;
  • To display a profile with information on the public website with contact information, photo and general information of you as a member;

Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties but will be accessible to visitors of the website.

6. Your privacy

6.1 You can access your personal data

If you want to access the data about you that we process, please let us know.

If you exercise your right of access, we want to provide you with a complete overview of your data as possible.

6.2 You can have your personal data corrected

It is possible that certain data that we stored about you are not or no longer correct. You may always ask us to correct or complete that data.

6.3 You can have your personal data removed

If you suspect that we process certain data unlawfully, you can ask us to remove it.

6.4 You can oppose certain uses of your personal data

If you do not agree with the way in which we process certain data, you may oppose it. Opposition that we will respect unless there are mandatory grounds not to do so, which is the case, for example, if we process data to combat fraud.

6.5 You may sometimes refuse to let your data processed fully automatically

Some data processing and processes are fully automated without human intervention. We try to impart the logic of this automated process when it is relevant.

If you do not agree with the result of such a fully automated process, you may contact us.

6.6 You may ask to have your data transferred to a third party

You have the right to ask that personal data that you provided us with will be transferred to you or directly to a third party. The privacy legislation does have a number of restrictions to this right, so that it does not apply to all data.

6.7 You may exercise your rights

Always be as specific as possible if you wish to exercise your rights, so we can handle your request concretely and correctly. We do have to verify your identity, to avoid someone else exercising your rights. That is why we will ask for a copy of your ID card if you make such a request.

Do you have a question or a comment, or do you no longer wish to receive certain information? Just send us an email at

You no longer wish to receive our newsletter? At the bottom of every newsletter you will find a link; simply click on it to unsubscribe.

7. Storage of your personal data

Data must be stored for the shortest possible time.

If you are a visitor of the website and you filled out the general request form, Eurojuris will keep this personal data, referring to article 4 of this legal notice, stored for at least 2 years. We do what is necessary to check at regular times whether the information you provided us with is still up to date.

If you are a member of Eurojuris, your personal data will be stored for at least the period of your membership. After a possible termination of the membership, the personal data will be kept for 2 years from the date of termination.

Some applications may require a broader time horizon, for example to carry out studies or draw up risk and marketing models. Some insights only become clear when you view them in a broader time frame. To this end, the storage period may be extended by 10 years compared to the standard storage periods. We will always try to break the link with individual persons and only work with aggregate or anonymised data.

8. Your data is processed

We call on various processors to process personal data.

They are companies that we commission to process certain personal data for us, such as:

  • consultants;
  • market research firms;
  • ICT (security) service providers, etc.;
  • marketing and communication agencies;
  • social media as Facebook, LinkedIn, …;
  • companies that help us to determine and analyse your user behaviour on our applications and Internet sites;
  • etc.

In order to protect your personal data and have sufficient guarantees that the processors will respect the privacy legislation, the processors have been asked to enter into a processing agreement.

9. Security of personal data by Eurojuris

We find it important to handle your data safely. That is why use is made of various security technologies and measures to offer your data appropriate protection against unauthorised access, loss or publication.
