    2. By origin:
      • First-Party Cookies. Served directly to your device from the Sites and are accessed by SSCo to recognize your device. They might include cookies related to third‐party service providers, so first‐party cookies might log user‐related information accessible to and processed by third parties.

These cookies are temporary and are set to be deleted when leaving the Sites or ending a session.
      • Persistent Cookies. Stored by your Internet browser for more than a session and are set to expire within a defined timeframe. Persistent cookies log user settings and information, so you do not have to keep re‐entering them whenever visiting the Sites.

      SSCo uses web beacons, tracking pixels, or cookies in combination with tools. The following are specific types of cookies that SSCo uses:

    Notwithstanding SSCo's security policy, the checks it carries out and the actions it proposes in this context, an infallible level of security cannot be guaranteed. Because no method of transmission over the internet or any method of electronic storage is 100% secure, SSCo is, in this context, not in a position to guarantee absolute security.

We take steps designed to ensure that the data SSCo collects under this Privacy Policy is processed as described in this Privacy Policy and according to applicable law wherever the data is collected and/or stored.

    We may transfer Personal Data from the EEA and the UK to other countries that may not have the same level of data protection that applies in your jurisdiction. For Personal Data transfers from the EEA and the UK to the U.S., SSCo relies on the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework (the “EU-U.S. DPF”), the UK Extension to the EU-U.S. DPF, and the Swiss-U.S. Data Privacy Framework (the "Swiss-U.S. DPF") as further described in Section 13 below, to the extent as each of these programs remains a lawful mechanism as an "adequacy decision" under GDPR to transfer your Personal Data. Where we cannot rely on the EU-U.S. DPF, the UK Extension to the EU-U.S. DPF, or the Swiss-U.S. DPF as lawful mechanisms to transfer your personal information (including where we transfer data to countries other than the U.S.), SSCo uses appropriate cross-border transfer solutions to ensure that the recipient of your Personal Data offers an adequate level of protection, including entering into the standard contractual clauses for the transfer of European data approved by the European Commission or, where required, we will ask you for your prior informed consent.

    In cases where SSCo transfers your Personal Data processing by the third party shall be governed by a contract or other legal act, under EU or UK law where required, that obligates the third party to process your Personal Data at least as restrictive as SSCo itself and that sets out (i) the subject-matter and duration of the processing, (ii) the data may only be processed for the limited and specified purposes consistent with the consent provided by you, (iii) the type of Personal Data, and (iv) categories of Data Subjects and the obligations and rights of SSCo; (v) notification to SSCo when the third party determines it cannot meet its contractual requirements or provide an adequate level of security along with further action by the third party to either cease processing or remediate the issues present upon such an occurrence.

SSCo has certified to the U.S. Department of Commerce that it adheres to the Swiss-U.S. Data Privacy Framework Principles (the "Swiss-U.S. DPF Principles") regarding the processing of Personal Data received from Switzerland in reliance on the Swiss-U.S. DPF.
