We process the personal data that is necessary for us to carry out our activities and operations in a sustainable, user-friendly, secure and reliable manner. Such personal data may in particular fall 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 and contract and payment data.
We process personal data for the period of time necessary for the relevant purpose(s) or as required by law. Personal data whose processing is no longer necessary is anonymised 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. Such third parties are in particular specialised providers whose services we use. We also ensure data protection with such third parties.
We process personal data basically only with the consent of the data subject, unless the processing is permitted for other legal reasons, such as for the performance of a contract with the data subject and for appropriate pre-contractual measures, to safeguard our overriding legitimate interests, because the processing is evident from the circumstances or after prior information.
In this context, we process in particular information that a data subject voluntarily and self-submits to us when contacting us – for example by post, email, instant messaging, contact form, social media or telephone – or when registering for a user account. We may store such information in an address book or similar means, for example. If you transmit personal data to us via third parties, you are obliged to ensure data protection vis-à-vis such third parties and to ensure the accuracy of such personal data.
We also process personal data that we receive from third parties, obtain from publicly available sources or collect in the course of our activities and operations, if and to the extent that such processing is permitted for legal reasons.
We process personal data about applicants to the extent that it is necessary for the assessment of suitability for an employment relationship or for the subsequent implementation of an employment contract. The required personal data results in particular from the information requested, for example in the context of a job advertisement. We also process personal data that applicants provide voluntarily, in particular as part of cover letters, CVs, and other application documents.
5. Personal data abroad
We process personal data basically in Switzerland. However, we may also disclose or export personal data to other countries, in particular in order to process them or have them processed there.
We may disclose personal data to all states and territories on earth as well as elsewhere in the universe, provided that the law there guarantees adequate data protection in the opinion of the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) or in accordance with a decision of the Swiss Federal Council.
We may disclose personal data to countries whose laws do not ensure adequate data protection, provided that adequate data protection is ensured for other reasons, for example through appropriate contractual agreements, on the basis of standard data protection clauses or with other appropriate safeguards. By way of exception, we may export personal data to countries without adequate or appropriate data protection if the specific requirements under data protection law are met, such as the express consent of the data subjects or a direct connection with the conclusion or performance of a contract. We will be happy to provide data subjects with information about any guarantees or provide a copy of any guarantees on request.

Data subjects whose personal data we process have the rights under Swiss data protection law. This includes the right to information as well as the right to rectification, deletion or blocking of the personal data processed.
