ON WHAT LEGAL GROUNDS DO WE PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

Our processing of your personal data is lawful as long as there are legal grounds for doing so.

Processing necessary for the performance of a contract or prior to entering into a contract

When you start a client relationship with us, say by making an enquiry, getting in contact, etc. we process your contact information on a precontractual or contractual basis.

Processing on the basis of your consent

If you choose to subscribe to our communications and marketing materials, such as our Newsletter or mailing list, we will explicitly ask for your consent to process your personal data. Please note that you may exercise the option to unsubscribe or otherwise withdraw your content at any time by clicking on the “unsubscribe” button at the bottom of our Newsletter communications or contacting us at hello@show-case.ch. Information from your social media accounts and photos taken at events are also collected on this basis. For consent matters related to cookies, please see cookie notice.

Processing necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests or of a third party

Although as our client you might be in a contractual relationship for specific services, we may want to let you know about different but related offerings that may be of benefit to you. In this case, it is in the legitimate interest of both our business and you that we process your contact information.

Most of our providers are located in Switzerland, the European Union, and Great Britain.
