From time to time, we are asked the question about whether KLARA passes on user data to third parties without permission.
We can assure you that KLARA will not pass on any data to third parties in any way without your prior explicit consent. This would be illegal under current data protection law and we will never allow this. And no, KLARA is not financed by the unsolicited sale of your data.
However, KLARA enables you to communicate with KLARA partners using your data and to have communication where you want or need to. Some examples:
- ELM / SwissDec salary declaration to the compensation office and insurance companies
- Credit enquiry to Credit-Suisse (provided you are a customer of theirs)
- Payment files to your bank (PAIN file)
- Account statement from your bank (CAMT file)
- Insurance enquiry to Generali
- From 2020, reporting an accident to Suva (Swiss national accident insurance fund)
- Printing and send data, which you can send directly to Post via KLARA
These integrations are developed on an ongoing basis and should help you run your office simply.
In all these cases, you will be asked expressly before any transmission of data, and you can decide for yourself whether or not you would like to have these data transmitted to the partner in question. The data to be exchanged will also be shown to you in advance. KLARA does not have sight of this at all and is not permitted to transmit data without your approval at any time. You alone can do this on your account.
