Purpose and scope of the privacy policy

Protecting your privacy and treating the personal data of all users of our Electronic Services in accordance with the law is important to us. We understand that by using our Electronic Services you may be entrusting us with your personal data (“Data”) and assure you that we take our duty to protect and safeguard this Data very seriously. This Privacy Policy therefore explains the kind of data we process when using our Electronic Services, the purpose for which we process it, how we process it, whom we may disclose it to and the security measures we have put in place to protect it.

This Privacy Policy applies to all Data we obtain through your use of our Electronic Services. It does not apply to data we obtain through other channels nor to Electronic Services of third parties (“third-party Electronic Services”), even if you access them via a link in our Electronic Services or even if they are necessary for the operation of our Electronic Services. We have no influence on the content or privacy policy of third-party Electronic Services and therefore cannot assume any responsibility for them.

Types of Data being processed

When you use our Electronic Services, details of your usage may be automatically registered by our backend systems (such as your IP address, browser, http-header user agent, device-specific information the content you accessed, including time and date of access, usage and user interaction, and the redirecting website from which you came to our Electronic Services). We also process Data such as your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, date of birth, gender and other Data transmitted to us if you register for the usage of our Electronic Services or if you complete a registration form or comment field for a newsletter, product demos, etc.

Legal grounds and purpose of data processing

We process the Data based on the following legal grounds:

  • Legitimate interests of Julius Baer or of third parties;
  • Your consent;
  • Fulfilment of contractual obligations and take steps prior to entering into a contract;
  • Statutory requirements.

We process the Data for the following purposes:

  • Providing Electronic Services e.g. to assist with your registrations, user settings and respond to your feedback and issues;
  • Administration, research and development in connection with Electronic Services;
  • Marketing and advertising measures (e.g., newsletters via e-mail, online advertising);
  • Analysis and monitoring of usage, user behaviour and navigation while using the Electronic Services;
  • Checking the identity and suitability of clients for certain products and services;
  • Establishing a basis for future information on the products and services offered by Julius Baer and to improve their quality;

We process all your Data in accordance with the applicable laws on data protection and for as long as required.

Disclosure and Transfer of your Data

We may transmit Data within the Julius Baer Group between Group companies, to Julius Baer agents or to Julius Baer services providers in or outside the country where you are currently located for the purposes stated above. All the above persons and entities that receive Data must ensure compliance with applicable data protection laws as well as the data protection standards of Julius Baer.

Julius Baer transfers your Data to countries outside Switzerland

  • For providing Electronic Services;
  • If you have given your consent (e.g. in your agreements with Julius Baer or via privacy settings); or
  • If based on a statutory requirement, authority request, or similar processes as required by applicable law.

In most cases, your Data will be transferred to countries in which the Julius Baer Group is represented. You will find a corresponding overview at Your data may also be transferred to countries in which the Julius Baer Group is not represented (e.g., for providing Electronic Services). Some countries to which Julius Baer transfers your Data potentially do not have an equivalent level of data protection than in the country where you are currently located. In these cases, Julius Baer will generally ensure an adequate level of data protection by concluding data transfer agreements with the recipients of your Data in third countries. These include agreements that have been approved by the European Commission and the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC), known as standard contractual clauses. You can find an example of a data transfer agreement usually employed by the Bank here. Based on your consent your Data may also be transferred to countries without an adequate level of protection. Please contact the Data Protection Officer if you would like more information on this topic.

In accordance with applicable legal and regulatory obligations, Julius Baer may be required to disclose Data to supervisory authorities, judicial authorities, or other persons of authority.

Security measures of Julius Baer

Julius Baer takes appropriate technical and organisational security measures to ensure that your Data processed within the IT environment controlled by Julius Baer is protected against unauthorised access, misuse, loss and/or destruction.

Julius Baer takes both, physical and electronic process-specific security measures, including firewalls, personal passwords, and encryption and authentication technologies. Our employees and approved service providers are bound to applicable confidentiality and data protection obligations.

Additionally, access to Data is made accessible to employees and third parties (e.g., service providers) on a strict “need to know”-basis.

Transmission of Data via an open network

Julius Baer draws your attention to the fact that if you use our Electronic Services via an open network, this may allow third parties (e.g., app stores, network providers or the manufacturer of your device), wherever they are located, to access and process your Data. Open networks are beyond Julius Baer’s control and can therefore not be regarded as a secure environment. Any transmission of Data via such open network cannot be guaranteed to be secure or error-free as Data may be intercepted, amended, corrupted, lost, destroyed, arrive late or incomplete, contain viruses or may be monitored. In particular, Data sent via an open network may leave the country – even where both sender and recipient are in the same country – and may be transmitted to and potentially processed in countries, where data protection requirements may be lower than in the country where you are currently located. Where Data is transmitted via an open network, we cannot be held responsible for the protection of this Data and we accept no responsibility or liability for the security of your Data during transmission. We, therefore, recommend avoiding the transmission of any confidential information via open networks. You may choose other means of communication with Julius Baer, where you deem it appropriate.
