Privacy Policy

Updated on September 20, 2021

Welcome to www.klicker.uzh.ch (the «KLICKERUZH»), a webtool provided by the Teaching Center of the Department of Banking and Finance at the University of Zurich («UZH»). UZH takes data protection very seriously, and as a team of UZH, so do we.

In this statement, we explain which user data are collected, processed, and disclosed, and for what purpose, and we describe the measures taken to safeguard the security of these data. All measures conform to the prevailing provisions on data protection. This statement refers to KLICKERUZH specific details. For the UZH’s Data Protection Statement, which we comply with, please see: http://www.uzh.ch/de/privacy.html

We strive to make our Privacy Policy easy to understand. We also encourage you to review the Site Terms of Service, which is the agreement between you and KLICKERUZH that governs your use of the Site, as well as provides the terms and conditions under which KLICKERUZH provides, and you may use, the KLICKERUZH Service (the “Service”).

If you do not agree with the Privacy Policy, or the Terms of Service, you may not use this Site, the Service, our applications, or our mobile Site.

In this Privacy Policy, we refer to our consumers as VISITORS and USERS. If you visit our Site and do not register (e.g., to participate in a poll), we refer to you as a VISITOR. If you choose to register on our Site as a lecturer, we refer to you as a USER. Both USERS and VISITORS are part of our polling services.

What We Do

We collect clickstream information and basic technical information, such as browser type, from VISITORS. We also process, but do not store, the IP address of VISITORS and USERS for the purpose of our polling services.

We use cookies to support the polling experience of USERS as well as VISITORS. If you participate in a poll as a VISITOR, we generate a browser fingerprint that we use to ensure your unique participation in the respective poll.

The information of VISITORS processed during a KLICKERUZH session is the IP address and browser fingerprint only, as VISITORS do not register when participating in a poll. This information is only used for the purpose of preventing major mis- or abuse during polls.

If you register for the Service and become a USER, KLICKERUZH collects the same information that is collected from VISITORS, as well as the personal information that you submit during the registration. Specifically, we process and store the following information with relation to USER accounts: email-address, password (appropriately hashed), the institution, your user scenario (if provided by you), your questions, sessions, and answers to any of your polls.

KLICKERUZH may use your registration information to contact you to: deliver the Service and improve our Site, Service, features and content, and provide customer service; administer and enable your use, enjoyment and navigation of our Site, Service, and mobile Site; better understand your needs and interests; fulfill requests you make; and personalize your experience.

We use a limited number of select service providers to perform work on our behalf. They are permitted to use personal information only for the purpose of providing their services or at an aggregate level.

The data of USERS and VISITORS are processed and stored on a service provider’s servers located in Switzerland and the European Union. The service provider complies with the UZH data storage and privacy requirements, and has agreed to the UZH’s Data Storage requirements.

In order better understand how our USERS and VISITORS navigate the KLICKERUZH website we use Google Analytics.

We share your personal information only as described in the UZH Privacy Policy and do not sell any information. USERS can delete their profile and data (including all questions and corresponding responses) completely by using the “Delete Profile” button on their account settings page. After use of this button, all stored data will be deleted on all servers in use. We are not able to restore any accounts deleted through this procedure.

General Matters

Because of our commitment to our Visitors’ and Users’ privacy, KLICKERUZH continuously evaluates our Privacy Policy, and may implement refinements from time to time. We encourage you to check our Site, the current Privacy Policy and Terms of Service frequently to see any changes that may have been made to them. If we make significant changes to this Privacy Policy that affect our USERS, we will notify the USERS of the change using the contact information we have on file. By continuing to use the Site or the Service after such notice has been posted, you are expressly agreeing to any changes to the Privacy Policy and/or Terms of Service.

Where your personal information has been requested by any governmental entity or other third party pursuant to subpoena or similar legal process, we will notify you as quickly as practicable before providing any such information, unless we are legally prohibited from doing so or we believe in good faith that disclosure is or may be necessary to protect life, avoid serious physical injury or property loss or damage, or to prevent or investigate an ongoing crime.
