Privacy policy

The responsible handling and protection of personal data is an important concern for us.

With this Privacy Policy, we inform you about which personal data we process in connection with our activities and operations, including our website. We particularly inform you about why, how, and where we process which personal data. Additionally, we inform you about the rights of individuals whose data we process.

Separate or additional privacy policies and other legal documents, such as General Terms and Conditions (GTC), Terms of Use, or Participation Conditions, may apply for individual or additional activities and operations.

We are subject to Swiss data protection law and, where applicable, other foreign data protection laws, particularly those of the European Union (EU) with the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

On July 26, 2000, the European Commission recognized that Swiss data protection law ensures adequate data protection. In a report dated January 15, 2024, the European Commission reaffirmed this adequacy decision.

2. Terms and Legal Bases

2.1 Terms

Personal data refers to all information that relates to a specific or identifiable natural person.

Particularly sensitive personal data includes data about union, political, religious, or philosophical views and activities, data about health, private life, or affiliation with an ethnic or racial group, genetic data, biometric data uniquely identifying a natural person, data about criminal and administrative sanctions or prosecutions, and data about social assistance measures.

Processing includes any handling of personal data, regardless of the means and procedures applied, such as querying, matching, adjusting, archiving, storing, reading, disclosing, obtaining, recording, collecting, deleting, revealing, ordering, organizing, saving, modifying, spreading, linking, destroying, and using personal data.

A data subject is a natural person whose personal data we process.

The European Economic Area (EEA) includes the Member States of the European Union (EU) as well as Liechtenstein, Iceland, and Norway.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) refers to the processing of personal data as the processing of personal data and the processing of particularly sensitive personal data as the processing of special categories of personal data (Art. 9 GDPR).

We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law, particularly the Federal Act on Data Protection (Data Protection Act, DPA) and the Ordinance on Data Protection (Data Protection Ordinance, DPO).

If and to the extent that the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is applicable, we process personal data according to at least one of the following legal bases:

  • Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR for the necessary processing of personal data to fulfill a contract with the data subject and to carry out pre-contractual measures.
  • Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR for the necessary processing of personal data to safeguard our legitimate interests or those of third parties, provided that the fundamental freedoms and rights and interests of the data subject do not override these interests. Legitimate interests include, in particular, our interest in being able to perform our activities and operations in a lasting, user-friendly, secure, and reliable manner, and being able to communicate about them, ensuring information security, protecting against misuse, enforcing our legal claims, and complying with Swiss law.
  • Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR for the necessary processing of personal data to comply with a legal obligation to which we are subject under applicable law in member states within the European Economic Area (EEA).
  • Art. 6(1)(e) GDPR for the necessary processing of personal data to perform a task carried out in the public interest.
  • Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR for the processing of personal data with the consent of the data subject.
  • Art. 6(1)(d) GDPR for the necessary processing of personal data to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person.
3. Type, Scope, and Purpose

We process personal data that is necessary for us to be able to perform our activities and operations in a lasting, user-friendly, secure, and reliable manner. Such personal data may fall, in particular, into the categories of inventory and contact data, browser and device data, content data, meta or marginal data, and usage data, location data, sales data, as well as contract and payment data.

We process personal data for the duration that is required for the respective purpose(s) or as mandated by law. Personal data that is no longer required will be anonymized or deleted.

We may have personal data processed by third parties. We may process personal data jointly with third parties or transfer it to third parties. These third parties are primarily specialized providers whose services we use. We ensure data protection even with such third parties.

We generally process personal data only with the consent of the data subjects. If and to the extent that processing is permissible for other legal reasons, we may forego obtaining consent. For example, we may process personal data without consent to fulfill a contract, comply with legal obligations, or protect overriding interests.

We also process personal data that we receive from third parties, obtain from publicly accessible sources, or collect in the course of our activities and operations, if and to the extent that such processing is legally permissible.

4. Communication

We process personal data to be able to communicate with third parties. In this context, we particularly process data that a data subject provides when contacting us, for example, by postal mail or email. We may store such data in an address book or similar tools.

Third parties who transmit data about other individuals must ensure data protection for such individuals. This includes ensuring the accuracy of the transmitted personal data.

5. Data Processing Notice for Job Applicants

We process personal data about applicants to the extent necessary for assessing suitability for an employment relationship or for the subsequent performance of an employment contract. The required personal data is particularly derived from the requested information, for example, in a job advertisement. We may publish job advertisements with the help of suitable third parties, such as in electronic and printed media or on job portals and job platforms.

We also process personal data that applicants voluntarily provide or publish, particularly as part of cover letters, resumes, other application documents, and online profiles.

If and to the extent that the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is applicable, we particularly process personal data about applicants in accordance with Art. 9(2)(b) GDPR.

6. Data Security

We take appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure data security commens urate with the respective risk. However, we cannot guarantee absolute data security.

Our website is accessed using transport encryption (SSL/TLS, particularly with the Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure, abbreviated HTTPS). Most browsers indicate transport encryption with a padlock in the address bar.

Access to our website is subject – as generally any Internet use – to mass surveillance without cause or suspicion and to other surveillance by security authorities in Switzerland, the European Union (EU), the United States of America (USA), and other countries. We cannot directly influence the appropriate processing of personal data by intelligence services, police agencies, and other security authorities.

7. Website Use

7.1 Cookies and Similar Technologies

We may use cookies and similar technologies for our website. Cookies (first-party cookies and third-party cookies, e.g., Google Analytics cookies) are data – usually text files – stored in your browser. Cookies cannot execute programs or transmit malware such as Trojans and viruses.

When you visit our website, cookies may be temporarily stored in your browser as “session cookies” or for a specified period as “permanent cookies”. “Session cookies” are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Permanent cookies allow your browser to be recognized the next time you visit our website, which allows us to measure the reach of our website, for example. However, permanent cookies can also be used for online marketing.

You can fully or partially deactivate or delete cookies in your browser settings at any time. Without cookies, our website may no longer be fully available. We actively request your explicit consent for the use of cookies, at least if and to the extent necessary.

We may use cookies to analyze and measure the reach of our website, including the use of third-party services such as Google Analytics. Such analysis and measurement of reach can also be performed using tracking pixels or similar technologies. These results help us correct errors, improve content, and enhance our website’s reach and visibility.

7.2 Server Log Files

We may collect the following information for each access to our website, provided it is transmitted by your browser to our server infrastructure or can be determined by our web server:

  • Date and time, including time zone
  • Internet Protocol (IP) address
  • Access status (HTTP status code)
  • Operating system, including user interface and version
  • Browser, including language and version
  • Individual sub-page accessed and amount of data transferred
  • Last website accessed (referrer)

We store such information, which may also constitute personal data, in server log files. This information is necessary to provide our website in a lasting, user-friendly, and reliable manner and to ensure data security and particularly the protection of personal data – also by third parties or with the help of third parties.

7.3 Tracking

We may use tracking pixels on our website. Tracking pixels, also known as web beacons, are small, usually invisible images automatically retrieved when you visit our website. Tracking pixels can capture the same information as server log files.</p

8. Notifications and Communications

8.1 Email and Other Notifications

We send notifications and communications, such as newsletters, via email and other communication channels, such as instant messaging.

If and to the extent that sending notifications and communications is permissible, we may measure the success of such notifications and communications, particularly whether they were opened and what links were clicked. However, such success measurement is limited to determining if and when a notification or communication was opened and what links were clicked. This is necessary for correcting errors, improving content, and ensuring their reach and visibility.

We need your explicit consent to send you email notifications and communications unless the sending is otherwise legally permissible. We may obtain such consent using a “double opt-in” procedure if possible. This means you will receive an email with a link that you need to click to confirm to avoid misuse by unauthorized third parties. We may log such consents, including the Internet Protocol (IP) address as well as the date and time, for evidence and security purposes.

8.2 Service Providers for Notifications and Communications

We send notifications and communications using specialized service providers.

Service providers for sending notifications and communications may process personal data on our behalf. We ensure appropriate data protection for such service providers.

9. Social Media

We maintain a presence on social media platforms and other online platforms to communicate with interested individuals and provide information about our activities and operations. Personal data may be processed outside Switzerland and the European Economic Area (EEA).

All conditions, including the general terms and conditions (GTC) and the privacy policies of the individual operators, also apply for social media and other platforms in each case.

We are responsible for the content that we publish on social media and other platforms, in accordance with applicable law. However, such platforms’ operators can process personal data and have their own privacy policies.

10. Third-Party Sercives

We may use third-party services to perform our activities and operations in a lasting, user-friendly, secure, and reliable manner. Such services also help us embed content on our website. These services, for example, require your Internet Protocol (IP) address, as without it, such services cannot transmit the respective content.

For their services, third parties may process data in connection with our activities and operations, aggregated and anonymized data, along with other cookies and similar technologies, as well as log files.

We specifically use:

11. Rights of Data Subjects
