Privacy policy

AIIC takes the private nature of the User's personal data very seriously. This privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") describes how AIIC treats the information AIIC collect when the User accesses and uses the Site. Please read this Privacy Policy very carefully before using the Site. All terms not defined herein are defined in the Terms of Use of the Site.


AIIC collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each User request. AIIC's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how the Users use the Service. From time to time, AIIC may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Site.

AIIC also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. AIIC does not use such information to identify the Users, however, and does not disclose such information pursuant to this Privacy Policy

Collection of personal data of Users

Certain Users of the Site choose to interact with the Site in ways that require AIIC gather personal data, i.e. all information relating to an identified or identifiable person. The amount and type of information that AIIC gathers, depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, AIIC asks Users for certain Services to provide a username and email address. In each case, AIIC collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the User's interaction with the Service. Users can always refuse to supply personal data, with the caveat that it may prevent Users from engaging in certain Site-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

AIIC may collect statistics about the behavior of Users of the Site. AIIC may monitor the most popular content on the Site to help identify spam. AIIC may display this information publicly or provide it to others for this sole purpose.

Protection of personal data

AIIC discloses the User's personal data only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on AIIC'S behalf or to provide Services available on the Site, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of the User's home country, in countries not ensuring adequately protection of personal data, and by using the Site, the User expressly consents to the communication o and the transfer abroad of such personal data to them.

Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations or as described above, AIIC discloses personal data only when required to do so by law, or when AIIC believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of AIIC, third parties or the public at large. If Users are a registered User of the Site, have supplied an email address, and agreed to receive information about new products, Services or general information from AIIC, AIIC may occasionally send the User an email to tell the User about new features, solicit the User's feedback, or just keep the User up to date with what's going on with AIIC's Services. AIIC primarily uses AIIC's Service to communicate this type of information, so AIIC expects to keep this type of email to a minimum. If the User sends AIIC a request (for example via a support email or via one of AIIC's feedback mechanisms), AIIC reserves the right to publish it in order to help AIIC clarify or respond to the User's request or to help us support other users. AIIC takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of personal data

The User should also be aware that if the User publishes information onto the Site, such information becomes public information. Such disclosures may also increase the User's chances of receiving unwanted communications.

Links to third party sites

This Privacy Policy only applies to information collected by AIIC. This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of companies that AIIC does not own or control, or employees that AIIC does not manage. The Site contains links to third party websites. Any information a User provides to, or that is collected by, third-party sites may be subject to the privacy policies of those sites, if any. AIIC encourages the User to read such privacy policies of any third-party sites the User visits. It is the sole responsibility of such third parties to adhere to any applicable restrictions on the disclosure of the User's personal data, and AIIC and its affiliates shall not be liable for wrongful use or disclosure of the User's personal data any third party.


All personal data described above is stored on restricted database servers.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a User's computer, and that the User's browser provides to the website each time the User returns. AIIC uses cookies to help AIIC identify and track Users, their usage of the Site, and their Site access preferences. Users who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using the Site, with the drawback that certain features of the Site may not function properly without the help of cookies.

Privacy Policy Changes

AIIC may change this Privacy Policy from time to time, and in AIIC's sole discretion. If AIIC does, then AIIC will notify Users by posting the amended policy on the Site, and by emailing registered Users, of the nature of the modifications along with a link to the modified Privacy Policy for acceptance. In all cases, use of information AIIC collects now is subject to the Privacy Policy in effect at the time such information is collected.

Review and Access

Upon User's request, AIIC will provide the User with a summary of the information AIIC collect about the User. Unless otherwise required by mandatory applicable law, the User will have the opportunity to correct, update, modify or delete this information by sending an e-mail to

Applicable law and jurisdiction

This Privacy Policy and all matters arising out of or relating to this Privacy Policy shall be governed by the substantive laws of Switzerland, without regards to principle of conflicts of laws thereof.

Any controversy, claim or dispute between a User and AIIC arising out of or in relation with this Privacy Policy shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the ordinary courts of the Canton of Geneva with the exception of an appeal to the Swiss Supreme Court.
