Through its Digital Lawyer Platform (“Digital Lawyer Platform”), Wenger & Vieli AG ("W&V") provides registered users ("Users") with both selected legal documents and a tool for the recording of changes to entries in the commercial register regarding persons. The Digital Lawyer Platform always displays the latest range of services offered. W&V is entitled to adapt, restrict or extend the Digital Lawyer Platform itself and the content provided via the Digital Lawyer Platform at any time or to declare its use (in full or in part) subject to a charge.
The use of the products on the Digital Lawyer Platform does not create a client relationship with W&V.
The User account may only be used by the User registered for this account. The User is obliged to keep the login data secret and to take appropriate precautions to protect such data from unauthorized access. The User is also obliged to notify W&V immediately if the security of their account has been compromised. If fraudulent or unauthorized use of an account is suspected, W&V reserves the right to temporarily suspend or permanently block access to it.
W&V strives to ensure the availability of the Digital Lawyer Platform 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, but does not guarantee uninterrupted or trouble-free availability.
All rights to the content made available through the Digital Lawyer Platform belong to W&V or its contracting partners. W&V grants Users a non-exclusive right to use the Digital Lawyer Platform and the documents created through the Digital Lawyer Platform. The User may use content retrieved or downloaded from the Digital Lawyer Platform exclusively for their own personal or business use. Any other use, in particular the transfer or sale of documents created via the Digital Lawyer Platform to third parties is prohibited.
The contents made available on the Digital Lawyer Platform were created by W&V with the greatest care. However, W&V hereby points out to Users that the documents are based on standardized facts which reflect the common interests for the particular contract type they relate to. It is therefore possible that specific features the User may look for and the User’s particular requirements are not covered; it should also be noted that the services available through the Digital Lawyer Platform cannot replace individual legal advice from an expert. It is the User’s responsibility to verify whether the document in question is complete and suitable for the use intended by the User before applying it without changes. W&V recommends that Users seek additional expert advice on individual contractual issues and clarify any tax consequences of the planned transaction. The contents and documents refer exclusively to the law applicable in Switzerland.
W&V is liable without limitation for willful misconduct and gross negligence. In every other respect, any liability of W&V is excluded to the extent permitted by law. Insofar as the liability of W&V is excluded or limited, this applies as well to the personal liability of its staff, employees, personnel, representatives and persons employed in performing W&V’s obligations.
In the event of disputes, exclusively Swiss substantive law shall apply to the exclusion of conflict of laws rules and international treaties. The exclusive place of jurisdiction for disputes in connection with the use of the Digital Lawyer Platform is at the registered office of W&V, unless the law provides for other mandatory places of jurisdiction. W&V is, alternatively, entitled to have recourse to the competent court at the domicile / residence of the User.
The protection of your privacy and your personal data is an important concern that we always take into account in our business relationships. Accordingly, we treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this Privacy Notice.
With this Privacy Notice we inform you about how we handle personal data within the scope of your use of Digital Lawyer services, which information about the users of Digital Lawyer we collect and evaluate and subsequently use, pass on or otherwise process.
When you sign up for Digital Lawyer we ask for your e-mail address, your name (real name, no pseudonyms or aliases allowed) and your chosen username.
When you use Digital Lawyer we also collect non-personal data in connection with the use of our services for the purposes of data security and usability. For example, the Internet browser used, the operating system, the domain name of the website you have previously visited, the number of visits, the average length of stay and the pages you have visited are stored.
This automatically collected data is not combined with other data sources. However, we reserve the right to check this data subsequently if we become aware of any concrete indications of illegal use.
We use so-called cookies and web beacons on the browser side. Cookies do no harm to your computer, they are small files with configuration settings that help us make Digital Lawyer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are also used to implement certain user functions.
You can choose your browser or the privacy settings of your mobile devices so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases. You can also exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. However, if cookies are deactivated, it is possible that not all functions of Digital Lawyer can be used in full.
Furthermore, we use web beacons, so-called counting graphics, which enable us to analyse user behaviour. For example, our newsletters and HTML e-mails can contain a web beacon that determines whether the e-mails were opened or the links contained were clicked on. This information helps us to improve our e-mail service and better adapt our content to user needs. Web beacons are also deleted when the e-mail is deleted. Of course, our regular text e-mails do not contain web beacons.
We use Google Analytics to continually improve the usability and functionality of Digital Lawyer. Only non-personal data is used for this purpose.
The LinkedIn Insight Tag enables the collection of metadata such as IP address information, timestamp, and events such as page views. All data is encrypted. The LinkedIn browser cookie is stored in a visitor's browser until they delete the cookie or the cookie expires (there’s a rolling six-month expiration from the last time the visitor’s browser loaded the Insight Tag).
We will only process and use the personal data you provide in connection with your use of Digital Lawyer for the following purposes:
In connection with the provision of the Digital Lawyer platform and related services (such as e-mail notifications) we use external service providers. These service providers may only use or disclose the data collected and processed by us within the scope of this Privacy Notice and under no circumstances for other purposes.
We use a variety of data security measures to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of your personal information. Due to the nature of the Internet, however, we would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps and complete protection of data from access by third parties is not possible.
We use your personal data as long as your user account is activated or as long as it is necessary to provide the services you have requested. In individual cases we must, due to existing legal or regulatory obligations.
You have the right to request written information about your stored data at any time. Furthermore, in connection with the use of your personal data, you have the right to correct, delete, block, and restrict processing. If you have any further questions, please contact the contact point listed below. Also, you are free to file a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.
