Privacy policy statement


Clinic Beethoven­strasse AG, Zürich, is the operator of the websites and and the provider of services offered thereon. Clinic Beethoven­strasse AG is responsible for the collection, processing, and use of your data and has to ensure compliance with Swiss law.  Here you will find information on what kind of data is collected and used on and You will also learn how you can verify the correctness of such data and have it deleted by us. Please note that this privacy statement may be changed from time to time. Therefore, we recommend reading this Privacy Statement on a regular basis to make sure that the most recent version is always known to you.

Legal basis

Preparation and fulfillment of a contract

Unless specified otherwise, Clinic Beethoven­strasse AG collects and uses personal data as part of the preparation and fulfillment of the contracts concluded with the individual party concerned. This also applies to processing procedures required to carry out pre-contractual measures. The basis for this is, therefore, article 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR. If you refuse to provide the personal data required for this purpose, the services of Clinic Beethoven­strasse AG may only be available to you to a limited extent or may not be available at all.

Legal obligation

Furthermore, it is possible that Clinic Beethoven­strasse AG may be subject to legal obligations (e.g. with respect to the provision of services for storing payment methods) that require personal data be collected and used.

Legitimate Interest

Article 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR is the legal basis for processing if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of Clinic Beethoven­strasse AG or a third party and if the interests, basic rights and basic freedoms of the party concerned do not outweigh the former interest.


If none of the aforementioned conditions is applicable, Clinic Beethoven­strasse AG shall collect and use personal data only after prior consent by the party concerned.


Data deletion and storage duration

The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. This means that, for example, personal data that was collected for the purposes of preparation and fulfillment of a contract will be deleted after the contract has ended.

In addition, storage may occur if this was provided for by European or national legislators in EU regulations, laws or other regulations for which the responsible party is subjected. A blocking or deletion of data then also occurs if a storage term prescribed by the standards mentioned expires, unless it is necessary to continue storing the data for a contract conclusion or to fulfill a contract.


Data transmission in Switzerland

The responsible party is headquartered in Switzerland. That is why the processing of the collected personal data (also) occurs in Switzerland according to the adequacy decision of the European Commission no. 2000/518/EC.


Collection, Use, and Processing of Personal and Corporate Data

Whenever you visit or , certain data is automatically stored, for system administration, for statistical or security purposes. This data includes:

  • Searched pages
  • Social Media
  • Country from which you are visiting our websites
  • Filled forms

In some circumstances, such data can be used to infer information on certain visitors. No personal data is used in this context, however. Such data are used only in anonymous form.


Data disclosure to third parties

Insofar as it may be necessary for order processing, your data will be shared with our partners (third parties). If your data is shared with external service providers, technical and organizational measures will be taken to make sure that such data sharing is compliant with applicable data protection laws. If you provide us with any personal or corporate data on your own, we will not use, process or disclose such data beyond the extent permitted by law or your consent.

In addition, we will share your data with external service providers only if this is necessary for order processing and such partners have agreed to comply with applicable confidentiality and due diligence regulations.

Furthermore, we will disclose your data only if obliged to do so under applicable laws or so ordered by an administrative or judicial authority.


Inquiry, Deletion, and Correction

Users as data subjects have the following rights vis-à-vis the data controller:

  • The processing is unlawful and you refuse the deletion of the personal data and instead request that the use of the personal data be restricted.
  • The data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but you do need it to assert, exercise, or defend legal claims.
  • If you have filed an objection to the processing, and it has not yet been determined whether the legitimate reasons of the data controller outweigh your reasons.

If the processing of your personal data has been restricted, such data may only be processed – apart from being stored – with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising, or defending rights or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or on grounds of an important public interest of the European Union or a member state.

  • Your personal data has been processed unlawfully.
  • The deletion of your personal data is required to fulfill a legal obligation under European Union law or the law of the member states to which the data controller is subject.

  • To assert, exercise, or defend legal claims.

If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, your personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes.

You have the option to exercise your right of objection in connection with the use of information society services by means of automated processes using technical specifications.
