Protecting your personal data is essential to CAVIAR PETROSSIAN and we are committed, via this personal data protection policy, to informing you how we collect and subsequently process such data.

We, CAVIAR PETROSSIAN, as data controller, undertake to comply with the legal demands of the Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection (FADP), the Ordinance to the Federal Act on Data Protection (OFADP), the  Swiss Telecommunications Act (TA) as well as the provisions of the Regulation (EU) No. 2016/679 of 27 April 2016 relating to the protection of personal data (GDPR).


Accordingly, we take all the necessary measures in order to:

  • Provide you with clear and transparent information on how your data will be collected and processed;
  • Implement all the technical and organisational measures required to protect your data against disclosure, loss, degradation or access by any unauthorised third party;
  • Retain your data only for the time required for processing purposes or for the service in question;
