Social media buttons
The Sanitas web pages include functions (plug-ins) provided by third-party providers or social media platforms (Facebook, X, Google+, etc.). These plug-ins enable users to share content in the above social networks. When the user activates the buttons, the plug-ins automatically transmit data, including personal data, to the relevant third-party provider. If the user is logged in to the network of the respective third-party provider at the same time as visiting the website, the provider can assign the visit to the user’s network account. Sanitas has no influence on this process. Users can prevent this processing by logging out of the third-party provider before accessing the Sanitas website. The data privacy notices of the applicable social networks define the purpose and scope of the data collection process and how they further process and use personal data. The data privacy notices also provide users with information on their rights and setting options with regard to the protection of privacy.
Sanitas web pages provide links to the websites of other companies. Sanitas offers no guarantee for the information, products, services or other content contained in these websites. Sanitas does not check the content of these websites. Users using links from Sanitas’s web pages to other website do so entirely at their own risk.
If you provide us with information to receive the newsletter, you agree that your email address may be used to send the newsletter. This does not imply any further consent to the use of your email address.
The personal data you provide when registering for the newsletter will be stored. Sanitas may store this data itself or commission third parties to do so. If the data is stored by companies commissioned by Sanitas, they are subject to legal and contractual confidentiality and data protection obligations. Access to data stored by third parties on behalf of Sanitas is only granted to employees who are entrusted with the maintenance, monitoring and administration of the system.
You can unsubscribe from the newsletter or further information by email at any time. The data stored for the subscription to the newsletter will be deleted on cancellation of the newsletter.
You will not receive any advertising or other offers from Sanitas or third parties. If you would like to receive emails with marketing content or surveys by email, you can give us separate consent. Your email address will only be used to send our own information. We do not pass the address on to third parties for this purpose. The click behaviour with regard to hyperlinks in emails and websites is recorded anonymously; no personal user profiles can be created.
The live chat is recorded in a log file and saved on the Sanitas server located in Switzerland. You decide during a live chat if and, if so which, personal data you want to disclose. Depending on your question, Sanitas staff may need personal details to be able to advise you.
Sanitas uses the additional saved data in the log file (URL, IP address, page file name, date and time, web browser type and operating system, shopping cart data) - alongside the recorded conversation - to perform anonymous, statistical evaluations and for internal training of Sanitas staff.
The online appointment service allows interested parties to book a consultation with a Sanitas insurance advisor. The booking and consultation are free of charge and the appointment can be changed or cancelled at any time. Any data used to book the appointment and for the consultation will not be passed on to third parties and can only be accessed by Sanitas employees.

The online appointment service is offered in cooperation with Calenso. User data is not passed on to Calenso.
Sanitas co-browsing takes place while you’re communicating with Sanitas staff via the live chat or support hotline. It enables the Sanitas support team to view the content of the browser you currently have open. They do not have access to your device, any personal details on your device or the device camera. The browser content visible to Sanitas support staff during an active co-browsing session is highlighted by a green frame. This way, you can always see which browser content on your computer is visible to Sanitas support staff. The application process is blocked for Sanitas support staff; in other words you are the only person who can complete and send the application form. A co-browsing session can be closed at any time by you or the Sanitas support staff by clicking on the “Exit” button. The browser content visible to the Sanitas support staff is not saved.

Sanitas web pages are designed to give people who are interested an overview of Sanitas’ products and services, and do not constitute any offer in the legal sense.
Sanitas prepares, checks and maintains its web pages with all due care and to the best of its knowledge. Nevertheless, Sanitas cannot guarantee that the information, documents and other information provided are complete and free of error.
For binding information, you are referred to the relevant application forms and general terms of insurance.
Sanitas shall not be liable for any direct or indirect loss or damage and subsequent loss or damage resulting from the use of its web pages. Sanitas shall likewise not be liable for any direct or indirect loss or damage and subsequent loss or damage resulting from the use of links provided on its web pages. Sanitas provides no guarantee that the information, software and other components provided on its web pages will function and are free of viruses.
Sanitas reserves the right to interrupt provision of the sanitas.com service at any time if security risks are identified and accepts no liability for any resultant loss or damage.
The entire contents of Sanitas’s web pages are copyrighted. Parts of the website may be downloaded or printed provided that legally protected terms are not removed. Use of part or all of the content of our web pages in electronic, written or other form for public and/or commercial purposes is permitted only with the prior written consent of Sanitas. Consent to use the Sanitas web pages does not constitute the granting or transfer of any copyright.
Confidential, personal data sent online to Sanitas via forms and the premium calculator on sanitas.com is transmitted in encrypted form and cannot be viewed by third parties. Customer information is stored in databases, some of which are run by partners of Sanitas. These partners are fully subject to the relevant data protection legislation and are not authorised to make further use of these data in any form.
Information on personal data processed / right to revoke
The above rights may be denied or restricted if the interests, rights and freedoms of third parties prevail or if the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend Sanitas’ legal claims.
Inquiries regarding the processing of personal data and the revocation of consent should be addressed to the Sanitas data privacy officer.
Normal emails sent to Sanitas are not encrypted.
Sanitas expressly draws attention to the fact that using normal emails to send unencrypted data is neither secure nor a suitable way of sending personal or other confidential data.
If visitors send personal information by email without appropriate protection, they should be aware that unauthorised third parties could access this information and thus gather, use or even falsify data without their consent. Further, under certain circumstances personal data sent by email may be transmitted via a provider abroad, even though the sender and receiver are located in Switzerland. You should therefore take account of the fact that your personal data could also be transferred to a country with less stringent data protection standards than Switzerland.
If, despite this, someone contacts Sanitas or makes enquiries by unencrypted email, Sanitas will assume that the customer explicitly desires this form of communication. By contacting Sanitas or making enquiries by unencrypted email, customers consent to Sanitas also replying or providing the information requested by unencrypted email.
Video call consultation
In the course of the Sanitas video consultation, you work through PDF documents with your Sanitas insurance advisor in the same browser tab. You and your Sanitas advisor can use the chat function to exchange, open, view and edit PDF documents. Your advisor does not have access to your device or any personal details on it. You decide on the use of the device camera and audio track or sound. The browser content that is visible to the Sanitas insurance advisor during the video consultation is highlighted with a green frame. This way, you can see at all times what browser content the Sanitas insurance advisor and you are both currently viewing and editing. You or the Sanitas insurance advisor can stop the video consultation at any time by pressing the “Stop” button. The browser content visible to the Sanitas insurance advisor is not saved. The insurance advisor will only create the requested quotes once the advice record that you and the advisor have completed together has been approved by the interested party.
