Data protection

Data security

In the event of the website of Bank Frick & Co. AG (hereinafter referred to as “Bank Frick”) being accessed or of Bank Frick being contacted electronically, it is essentially the case that the visitor data will be transported via an open network which is open to everyone. Communication data are also transmitted across national borders. This also applies to data transfers where both the sender and the recipient are located in the same country.

Basically, e-mail communications with Bank Frick are performed openly and without encryption. This consequently means that discretion cannot always be adequately assured in the case of communications which are performed over the Internet (e-mail). It is therefore not possible to exclude the possibility of data sent by this means being seen by third parties, and of contacts with our Bank being deduced. For this reason, we recommend that this medium should not be used to transfer client data and orders pertaining to business transactions.

Basically, our Bank will not execute client orders sent via e-mail.
