The content of this webpage is provided for general information purposes only and does not constitute legal advice.
As a law firm, Hodel & Partner necessarily processes personal data. We strictly adhere to the attorney-client privilege and the Swiss Data Protection Act when processing your personal data. We use technical and organizational security measures to adequately protect personal data against unauthorized access, manipulation, loss and deletion and update these measures regularly.
We use an IT provider to host your data for us. We ensure that our IT providers implement appropriate technical and organizational data security measures. We work with a Swiss IT provider whose servers are located in Switzerland.
Without your consent we do not pass any personal data over to third parties, unless it is necessary to fulfil our obligations as a law firm (e.g. our business partners, financial institutions, authorities).
The transmission of messages, documents and other information or data via e-mail is considered to be less reliable, secure and confidential than a transmission by mail or telefax. If we receive an e-mail and are not expressly instructed otherwise, then we conclude that we are entitled to respond and to correspond with you by e-mail. Hodel & Partner cannot guarantee the confidentiality of electronic communication channels and accepts no liability for the security of electronically transmitted data.
Although we check incoming e-mails regularly we do not guarantee that they are timely processed. Further, the receipt of e-mails may be subject to technical or operational interference. We therefore request that time-critical or important notices are sent to us by ordinary mail, courier services or telefax. The sending of e-mails to us does not ensure compliance by you with any statutory, regulatory or other time limits or deadlines.
Please note that the sending of an e-mail does not create an attorney-client relationship between the sender and our lawyers and employees.
