Internet data-protection declaration

This declaration explains what information and data are collected and evaluated by Flughafen Zürich AG with regard to the "The Circle" website, how this information is used and to whom it is made available. Flughafen Zürich AG processes data in accordance with all applicable legislation – in particular, Swiss data protection law.

Personal data

Personal data is defined as information that relates to a particular or an identifiable person or legal entity (e.g. name, telephone number, e-mail address). However, this does not apply to information that cannot be readily attributed to one or more people.

In principle, no personal data is collected or saved when somebody visits or uses the "The Circle" website. Data is only collected if so required for the provision of services offered, for orders or participation in competitions, surveys and the like, or if you contact us using a contact form or receive our newsletter. You are asked only for information that is relevant to a specific situation. You may unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time for future effect. Simply click on the "unsubscribe" link available in every newsletter. By clicking on this link you are terminating your subscription, at which point your registration is automatically deleted from the database.

To help improve our business processes your personal data may be passed on to partner companies which can access your data to process your order accordingly. Flughafen Zürich AG ensures that these companies abide by the data protection regulations and that they only receive data which is absolutely necessary to fulfil the order. We can assure you that we do not forward, transfer or sell your personal data to third parties unless this is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract that you have concluded with Flughafen Zürich AG, or unless your express consent has been given. However, we reserve the right to disclose data where we are legally obliged to do so (e.g. on account of illegal activity).

The "The Circle" website contains links to offerings by third-party providers.
