Data privacy statement
As at: 27 June 2019

As law firm, Fischer Ramp Partnjer necessarily processes personal data. Thereby, we strictly adhere to professional secrecy obligations and data protection laws in Switzerland. We deploy technical and organizational security measures to protect personal data adequately against unauthorized access, manipulation, loss and destruction and review these measures on a regular basis.

Processing of Personal Data and Purposes

The term “data processing” includes all steps in the handling of personal data from the collection to storage and use to deletion.

We process personal data in connection with the mandates of our clients as well as in connection with lecturing, speaking and publishing activities and other contractual obligations or legitimate purposes of Fischer Ramp Buchmann. Further, we process technical usage data to analyze the technical usage data on an anonymous and aggregated basis for the ongoing optimization of our website.

Data we process includes contact details including, as a minimum, first name, surname, e-mail address, postal address, phone numbers, profession and function. Further, we process technical usage data, including information about the date and time of your website visit, the pages visited, IP address, device ID and type, language settings, information on data usage and storage, information of the operating system and browser used by your device.


On our web pages we use cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your device in order for our website to recognize e.g. your language preferences or your view settings. Please review your personal browser settings to decide whether to accept or disable cookies or other tracking technologies, or to warn you against the use of these technologies. Disabling or disabling such features may limit or exclude your use of our website. However, we do advise you to disable third party cookies, enable tracking protection and “do not track”. For more information, please use the help-function of your browser.

Google Analytics

On our website we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google. Fischer Ramp Buchmann uses Google Analytics to analyze Google Analytics, not to analyze your visit or use of our website, as the latter is irrelevant for us to render our services as a law firm.

Cookies are saved on your computer which allow an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the public part of our website is, as a rule, transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. We use the service on our website with activated IP anonymization. This means that on our website, your IP address is shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area and therefore anonymised. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide further services related to the use of the website and the Internet to us as operator of the website. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with your other Google data.

We advise you to install the add-on available under the following link: in order to prevent the collection of data generated by the cookies and related to the use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google

Third Parties

Our website may contain links to third party websites, products, and services. Information collected by third parties, which may include location data or contact details, is governed by their privacy practices. We encourage you to review the privacy notices of such third parties. This Privacy Notice does not apply to websites of third party providers which can be accessed through our website. We have no influence on how these companies comply with data protection requirements.

We have IT-providers that host your data for us. With the requisite contractual provisions we ensure that our IT-providers have implemented the appropriate technical and organizational data security measures. We deploy Swiss IT-providers with servers in Switzerland.

Otherwise, we do not share any personal data with third parties unless you have instructed us to do so, given your consent or this is necessary to provide our services as a law firm (e.g. adversary parties, our business partners, financial institutions, authorities).

Data Retention period

We process and store data in accordance with our statutory and professional retention obligations.

Rights of the data subjects

As a data subject, you have the right to access the data processed by us as well as the right to request rectification of outdated data and the deletion of your data. To claim these rights, please contact us at the below stated address and provide us with appropriate identification. Please note that, in particular in order to comply with our statutory and professional obligations, we may have an overriding interest and may object to your request.

Communication Channels and Security

We cannot guarantee confidentiality for transmissions by electronic means (e.g. by email). The internet, websites and the electronic transmission of data are considered fundamentally insecure with regard to confidentiality and data security. Unauthorised third parties may be able to access information that is exchanged through the above channels, and data can be damaged or changed in content. We assume no liability for the security of data transmitted electronically. We do advise that you encrypt your e-mails.

We reserve the right to amend this Legal and Privacy Notice at any time. Applicable is always the published version of this Legal and Privacy Notice.
