We, VT5 Acquisition Company AG (hereinafter also referred to as "we" "us or "our") are pleased about your interest in our company.

We take the protection of your personal data and their confidential treatment very seriously. The processing of your personal data takes place exclusively within the framework of the legal provisions of the applicable data protection laws.

With this data privacy statement we inform you about the processing of your personal data on our website https:/www.vt5.ch/ (the “website”) and about your privacy rights.

By using this website you confirm that you have read and understood this data privacy statement and that you agree with its content. If you choose to not agree with any of these terms, you may not use the website.

2. Collection and storage of personal data as well as the nature and purpose of their processing

a. When visiting the website

When visiting our website, the browser used on your end device will automatically send information to the server of our website. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. This includes your IP address, the date and precise time of access and the pages viewed.
The data mentioned are processed by us for statistical purposes to optimize user experience. Furthermore, we use cookies and analysis services when you visit our website. More detailed explanations on this can be found in sections 4 and 5 of this data privacy statement.

b. Subscribing to our Newsletter

If you have explicitly consented to such use, we will use your email address to send you our newsletter at regular intervals. Indicating an email address will be sufficient to receive the newsletter.
Unsubscribing from our newsletter is possible at any time, e.g. using a link at the end of each newsletter or by sending us an unsubscribing request by email.

The personal data required for sending out the newsletter shall be erased as soon as they are no longer required for achieving the purpose of their collection and as far as no other legal authorisation basis applies for further processing. Your email address shall only therefore be stored for sending out the newsletter until you revoke your consent.

c. Using the request form

If there are any questions, we offer the option to contact us via the provided request form on our website. In such a case, your personal data transmitted in the request will be stored.
The personal data collected by us shall be erased after completion of the request submitted by you.

3. Passing on data

We only pass on your personal data to a third party (recipient) if:

• we have your express consent;
• it is in connection with our services (including the administration of our website and the provision of the services requested by you);
• we are legally required to do so; or
• it is necessary to enforce, exercise or defend legal claims and there is no overriding interest in not having your data passed on.

Such recipient may include our service providers, so-called processors, to whom we transfer your personal data and who process your data for us on our behalf and in accordance with our instructions. These service providers have been carefully selected and commissioned by us, are bound by our instructions and are prohibited from using your data for their own purposes or for any other purposes.
The Recipients may, under their own responsibility, disclose personal data to their agents and/or delegates (the “Sub-Recipients”), which shall process the personal data for the sole purposes of assisting the recipients in providing their services to the controller and/or assisting the Recipients in fulfilling their own legal obligations.
The Recipients may be located either inside or outside the European Economic Area (the “EEA”). Where the Recipients are located outside the EEA in a country which does not ensure an adequate level of protection for personal data or does not benefit from an adequacy decision of the European Commission, the controller has taken the appropriate measures (e.g. entering into legally binding transfer agreements with the relevant Recipients).
The Recipients and Sub-Recipients may, as the case may be, process the personal data as data processors (when processing the personal data on behalf and upon instructions of the controller and/or the Recipients), or as distinct controllers (when processing the personal data for their own purposes, namely fulfilling their own legal obligations).
