Data protection is a matter of great importance at Bisnode D&B
Swiss Data Protection
For over 170 years Bisnode D&B has been collecting information on companies and developing products and services, which support its customers with critical decisions. Today Bisnode D&B is one of the leading global providers of credit, marketing and procurement services. As a leading business in the information sector, Bisnode D&B already implemented data protection measures decades ago. The applicable regulations and specifically the Swiss Data Protection Act are incorporated in all information services of Bisnode. Our customer service consistently and swiftly implements requests for personal credit reports, as well as changes or deletions of entries within the scope of the law. Here you can contact the Bisnode customer service.
The application of internet technology
In most cases, visitors to the Bisnode D&B website are not obliged to enter personal information such as their name, address or telephone number. On most pages, visitors to the Bisnode D&B site do not have to enter any personal information, although we do collect some such information with the help of technology. Some non-personal identifiers are collected by the website server, for example: which browser is being used (e.g. Internet Explorer) or the domain name from which a visitor has reached our site (e.g. www.anyfirm.com).
Bisnode D&B only collects these personal data in order to complete transactions, deliver products and services, manage individual customer accounts, support customers with inquiries and to meet the requirements of the federal authorities. Bisnode D&B neither saves this information on its web server, nor does it sell or publish these data externally. Bisnode D&B does, however, occasionally analyse this information for internal statistical appraisals for market research purposes.
Our customers and prospective clients are sent the newsletter only if they have specifically requested it.
The operation and distribution of our marketing e-mails (newsletter, invitations, e-mail surveys) are implemented using the “emarsys” e-mail marketing solution by the emarsys eMarketing Systems AG Company (Vienna). Any personal details, which are collected when subscribing to the newsletter, are stored on the computers of Emarsys.
In each newsletter we provide the option to correct, update or remove the information provided by the subscriber. Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or our promotional e-mails can be removed from the mailing list by clicking on the “Unsubscribe” link.
Confidentiality and security measures
Bisnode D&B takes the best possible technical, contractual and administrative steps to prevent unauthorised access to personal data. Bisnode D&B employees are obliged to treat the confidential and personal information relating to Bisnode D&B and its customers that they have access to during their employment with the strictest confidentiality and to not disclose this to third parties. Bisnode D&B employees are also responsible for the internal security of this information. Various technologies have been used on some Bisnode D&B pages to further secure this information.
