  • Payment information, as a basis for our bookkeeping
  • Notes on communication with you (correspondence, information provided, etc.)

What do we use your data for?

We use the data we collect:

  • to provide you with the requested information or materials
  • to send you information via your preferred communication medium
  • to evaluate and improve our website, printed materials, and services
  • to investigate complaints and resolve technical problems
  • to analyse our websites and printed material as well as user behaviour and to produce aggregated reports

Your data is used exclusively to fulfill the mission of the FishEthoGroup association. We do not pass on your data to third parties.
In order to be able to provide our services, however, we may disclose your data in the following cases:

  • to service providers whom we have contracted to support our business activities. They are obliged to treat the data as confidential and to use it only for the services provided to us;
  • owing to legal obligations, to prevent misuse, for the purpose of personal security or to protect the public.


In principle, we send you information with your consent only. We assume this consent if you subscribed to one of our print or online publications or if you have otherwise asked us to provide you with information on a regular basis. We will only send you advertising material if you specifically ordered it.
You are free at any time to revoke or limit this consent.

Anti-spam strategy

The FishEthoGroup association does not tolerate unsolicited commercial e-mail (spam). We do not send e-mail to anyone without their permission, and we do not sell or rent e-mail addresses to third parties. This does not mean that we can prevent spam on the internet.
If you believe that you have received an unsolicited email from us, please contact the relevant complaint address below.


The protection of your data is important to us. We store, process, and secure your data on servers which are maintained and hosted in Switzerland and Germany and which are protected by physical and technical security measures. This includes enhanced firewall and password protection for our databases, physical access controls for our buildings and files, and restricting access to your personal data to employees and service providers who need this information to provide, develop and improve our services.


The use of cookies enables individual service providers on the Internet to identify different users and establish usage patterns on a website. This also makes it possible to determine the interests of the user identified by the cookie.
The FishEthoGroup association reserves the right to use cookies for the purpose of optimising their website and adapting it to user behaviour. We do not use cookies to track usage behavior beyond our website. If you wish to prevent cookies from being stored, please set your browser accordingly so that you are notified and asked before cookies are stored.
