How we protect and store personal information

We store and process your personal information on our computers in Switzerland, and we protect it by maintaining physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in compliance with applicable Swiss federal regulations. We use computer safeguards such as firewalls and data encryption, we enforce physical access controls to our buildings and files, and we authorize access to personal information only for those employees who require it to fulfil their job responsibilities.

How we use the personal information we collect

Our primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient and customized experience. We may use your personal information to:

  • provide the services and customer support you request;
  • customize, evaluate, and improve our services and the content and layout of our website;
  • send you targeted marketing, service update notices, and promotional offers based on your communication preferences;
  • deliver specific update reports and exceptional SecureSafe special offers, based on your preferred communication methods. We do not send out these offers more than once every two months, as a short email.
  • send you a series of introductory emails consisting of six emails sent at three-week intervals. The emails explain the functions and features of SecureSafe in more detail.

  • compare information to test for accuracy and verify it with third parties.

How we share personal information with other parties

We rely on the services of trusted partners to implement SecureSafe. The following partners may see some of your contact data as part of their way of helping us to provide our SecureSafe service to you:

ECall, an SMS delivery service by Dolphin Systems in Switzerland, will use your mobile number to be able to deliver notification messages for activating the Data Inheritance procedure and to be able to deliver the SMS authentication code to you.

Law enforcement or government officials - when we are compelled to do so by a subpoena, court order or similar legal procedure. If we need to do so to comply with law, we would potentially be forced to give away the username and email address of an account. All other personal information is fully encrypted and cannot be seen by any SecureSafe/DSwiss employee.

All our payment transactions are handled through our payment service providers, Saferpay and DataTrans. We share information with Saferpay and DataTrans only to the extent necessary for the purposes of processing payments you make via our website. DSwiss does not store your credit card information.
