Scope of the Cookie and Tracking Policy
This Cookie and Tracking Policy applies to Swisscanto's digital offerings, which refer to it. In particular, it applies to Swisscanto's main website swisscanto.com and subpages (hereinafter collectively referred to as the «Swisscanto website»).
For certain digital offerings, e.g. social media channels, separate applications or websites, there may be additional or different provisions for the use of tracking data. These are available on the corresponding offerings and take precedence in these cases.
Which tracking technology do we use?
Some of our cookies are technically necessary for the proper functioning of our offerings. Their use cannot be dispensed with for technical reasons, otherwise Swisscanto's digital offerings would not function properly. The other cookies are used to improve your user experience (e.g. through personalised offers). Their use may be approved or rejected when visiting our websites.
What cookies are and how they work?
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your device. They enable the website to remember specific entries and settings (e.g. your login, language, usage, preferences and statistics) over a certain period of time to optimise user experience, security and analysis in particular.
Cookies can be set as first-party cookies by saving them on the domain of the pages visited, e.g. www.swisscanto.com. These first-party cookies can only be read by the operators of the respective pages (in this case Swisscanto). These first-party cookies are set by means of first-party technical integrations (i.e. by Swisscanto itself) or by the integration of third-party tools (e.g. Adobe Analytics).
Cookies can also be set as third-party cookies. This happens when the cookies can also be read directly by other websites and website operators. Swisscanto uses third-party cookies very sparingly and only in publicly accessible areas.
You can find a list of cookies used in the section «Which cookies from third-party providers do we use and for what purpose».
What data is stored and processed?
The cookies stored on our Swisscanto website with your consent read tracking data (e.g. the website from which you visit us and the Swisscanto website you are currently visiting, including the date and duration of your visit as well as technical data on your device such as browser, operating system and IP address). This tracking data is required for statistical purposes for the optimisation and further development of the Swisscanto website and for the delivery of personalised offers and content.
If third-party tools are used for tracking on the Swisscanto website, Swisscanto will only pass on encrypted data to these third-party providers, on the basis of which the third-party provider alone will not be able to identify a specific person.
