2. Processing of Personal Data
Personal Data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. A Data Subject is a person whose Personal Data is processed. Processing means any operation which is performed on Personal Data, irrespective of the means and procedures applied, in particular the collection, destruction, disclosure, erasure, modification, retention, storage and use of Personal Data.
2.2 Legal Bases
We process Personal Data in compliance with the Swiss data protection legislation, in particular, the Federal Act on Data Protection (FADP) and the Ordinance to the Federal Act on Data Protection (OFADP).
2.3 Nature, Scope and Purpose
We process any Personal Data that is necessary in order to provide our offerings and services in a permanent, user-friendly, secure and reliable way. Such Personal Data may fall into the categories of content data, usage data, inventory data, meta data as well as contact data and payment data.
We process Personal Data for any duration that is required for the respective purpose or the respective purposes or by law. Any Personal Data whose Processing is no longer necessary will be anonymized or erased.
In principle, we process Personal Data only after the consent of the Data Subject has been given, unless Processing is permitted on any other legal grounds, for example for the performance of a contract to which the Data Subject is party and for corresponding measures prior to entering into a contract, to safeguard our prevailing legitimate interests, since such Processing is apparent from the circumstances or after prior information.
Within this framework, we process, in particular, information transferred by a Data Subject to us voluntarily and by himself/herself upon establishment of contact, for example by e-mail, contact form, instant messaging, postal mail, social media or telephone. We may retain such information, for example, in an address book or with comparable aids. When you transfer Personal Data of third parties to us, it is under your responsibility to guarantee data protection towards such third parties and to ensure the accuracy of such Personal Data.
We further process Personal Data we receive from third parties, gather from publicly accessible sources or collect upon provision of our offerings and services where and to the extent that such Processing is permitted on legal grounds.
We will process Personal Data from job applications only to the extent to which this is required for the purpose of assessing suitability of candidates for establishing employment relationships or for subsequently executing employment contracts. Personal Data required for a job application process can be derived from information requested and/or provided, e.g., in the context of job descriptions. Applicants have the possibility of voluntarily providing additional information for the application process.
2.4 Processing of Personal Data by Third Parties in Switzerland and Abroad
We may have Personal Data processed by third parties, especially processors, or we may process Personal Data jointly with third parties as well as with the help of third parties or transfer Personal Data to third parties. Such third parties include, in particular, providers, whose services we use. We guarantee an adequate level of data protection also when commissioning such third parties.
Such third parties are located, in general, in Switzerland and in the European Economic Area (EEA), including the European Union (EU) and the Principality of Liechtenstein, Iceland and Norway. Nonetheless, such third parties may also be located in other countries in the world, on the condition that the applicable data protection legislation guarantees a reasonable level of data protection according to the Assessment of the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) or that reasonable data protection is guaranteed through other means, for example by adequate contractual agreements, especially based on standard contractual clauses, or by an adequate certification. Such a third party may be, as an exception, located in a country without an adequate level of data protection on the condition that the relevant legal preconditions, such as the explicit consent of the Data Subject, are met.
3. Rights of Data Subjects
Data Subjects, whose Personal Data we process, have the rights guaranteed under Swiss data protection legislation. This includes the right of access as well as the right to rectification, erasure or blocking of the Personal Data processed.
Data Subjects whose Personal Data we process have the right to file a complaint with a competent supervisory authority. The supervisory authority in charge of data protection in Switzerland is the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC).
4. Data Security
We endeavor to take reasonable and adequate technical and organizational measures to guarantee data protection and, in particular, data security. Nonetheless, Processing of Personal Data on the Internet may always be subject to security vulnerabilities despite such measures. Therefore, we cannot ensure absolute data security.
Access to our online offerings and services is provided by transport encryption (SSL/TLS with HTTPS).
5. Use of the Website
When you visit our website, cookies may be temporarily stored in your browser as so-called “session cookies” or for a certain period of time as so-called “permanent cookies”. Session cookies are automatically erased when your browser is closed. Permanent cookies enable in particular to recognize your browser when you revisit our website, and thus allow to measure the reach of our website, for example. However, permanent cookies may also be used for online marketing purposes.
5.2 Server Log Files
We may collect the following information for any access to our website if your browser transfers this information to our server infrastructure or if our web server is able to gather this information: date and time including the time zone; Internet Protocol (IP) address; access status (HTTP status code); operating system, including the user interface and version; browser type, including the language and version; individual pages of our website accessed, including the amount of data transferred; last website accessed in the same browser window (referrer).
We store such information, which may also represent Personal Data, in server log files. The data is required to provide our website permanently, safely and reliably and in a user-friendly manner as well as to ensure data security and thus, in particular, the protection of Personal Data - also by third parties or with the help of third parties.
5.3 Tracking Pixels
We may use tracking pixel on our website. Tracking pixels are also called web beacons. Tracking pixels, including those of third parties whose services we use, are small images which are retrieved when you visit our website. Tracking pixels can be used to gather the same information as that stored in server log files.
6. Social Media
We are present on social media platforms and other online platforms in order to communicate with interested people and to provide information about our online offerings and services. Thereby, Personal Data may also be processed outside Switzerland and the European Economic Area (EEA), including the European Union (EU) and the Principality of Liechtenstein, Iceland and Norway.
The relevant General Terms & Conditions (GTC), Data Policies and other provisions established by the individual providers of such online platforms apply as well. These provisions in particular provide information on the rights of Data Subjects, including in particular the right of access.
7. Notifications and Communications
We may send notifications and communications, such as newsletters, by e-mail and through other communication channels such as instant messaging.
7.1 Success and Reach Measurement
Notifications and communications can contain web links or tracking pixels that record whether an individual message was opened and which web links were clicked. Such web links and tracking pixels may also record the use of notifications and communications on a personalized basis. We need such statistical information on usage to measure success and reach in order to provide notifications and communications in an effective, user-friendly, permanent, secure and reliable manner based on the needs and reading habits of the recipients.
7.2 Consent and Objection
You must in principle expressly consent to the use of your e-mail address and other contact addresses, unless the use is permitted for other legal reasons. For any consent to receive e-mails, we use the "double opt-in" procedure whenever possible, i.e. you will receive an e-mail with a web link that you must click on for confirmation to prevent misuse by unauthorized third parties. We may log such consent including your Internet Protocol (IP) address and date and time for evidence and security purposes. You may unsubscribe from notifications and communications such as newsletters at any time. We reserve the right to send you notifications and communications that are absolutely necessary for our services. By unsubscribing, you can in particular object to the recording of statistical information on usage for measuring success and reach.
8. Third-Party Services
We may use third-party services to provide our offerings and services in a permanent, user-friendly, secure and reliable way. Such services in particular allow us to embed content in our online offerings and services. Such services, for example hosting and data storage and backup services, video services and payment services, require your Internet Protocol (IP) address since such services will not be able to transfer the relevant content otherwise. Such services may be located outside Switzerland and the European Economic Area (EEA), including the European Union (EU) and the Principality of Liechtenstein, Iceland and Norway, on the condition that adequate data protection is guaranteed.
