DATA PROTECTION

The personal data of the Clients entered by the Clients when registering for a face-to-face training course or purchasing an online training course on the visioncompliance.ch website is intended for its own use by VisionCompliance. It is not transmitted to subcontractors that VisionCompliance may call upon in the context of the execution of its services.

VisionCompliance does not sell or rent the personal data of its Clients to third parties.

The payment of online training courses is carried out through the company Stripe (www.stripe.com). This company has a data protection policy. VisionCompliance’s Clients can read the Stripe company’s policy from its Internet site at the bottom of the page under the heading “Resources” and “Confidentiality and TOS”.

This does not apply in cases where the law requires the transmission of personal data to third parties or where VisionCompliance SA believes in good faith that the disclosure of this information is necessary to protect its rights, the security of the visioncompliance.ch website or to analyze cases of fraud.

DATA RETENTION PERIOD
For the Customer who purchases online training

Personal data is retained as long as the Customer does not close his account. However, if a Customer does not use their account for a period of 2 years, their personal data is deleted.

In the hypothesis where the account of the Client has been suspended or blocked according to the General Conditions, VisionCompliance keeps the data of the concerned Clients during a period of 2 years as from the suspension.

For the Client who buys an online training

The compulsory personal data recorded at the time of registration for a face-to-face training course is kept for as long as the person works for the same employer. At the request of the Customer, his data can be deleted at any time.

However, VisionCompliance will keep the name, first name, course(s) attended and their year as well as the results of the exams indefinitely. The purpose is to be able to issue duplicate certificates or diplomas when a Client has lost his document.
