1.1 Nature, scope and purpose

We process personal data that is essential for the continuous, secure and reliable provision of our services. This personal data can be classified into the following categories: membership and contact data, browsing and device data, content data, metadata or ancillary data, usage data, location data, sales, contract and payment data.

The duration of the processing of personal data is determined by the fulfilment of the intended purpose or by the law in force. Personal data that is no longer required is either rendered anonymous or deleted.

In particular, we process information that data subjects provide to us voluntarily and personally when they contact us, whether by post, e-mail, contact form, social networks or telephone. This information may be stored, for example, in an address book or similar tools. If you provide us with personal data relating to third parties, it is your responsibility to ensure that their data is protected and that it is accurate.

Personal data from job applications is only processed to the extent that it is necessary to assess suitability for an employment relationship or for the subsequent performance of an employment contract.

The personal information required to complete the application process derives from the data requested or provided, particularly in the context of a job offer. Candidates may also voluntarily provide additional information for their respective applications.


1.2 Processing of personal data by third parties in Switzerland and abroad

We may entrust the processing of personal data to mandated third parties, process it in collaboration with third parties or transfer it to third parties. These third parties include in particular the service providers whose services we use. We undertake to guarantee adequate data protection for these third parties.

These third parties are mainly located in Switzerland and the European Economic Area (EEA). However, they may also be located in other countries. This is possible provided that, according to the assessment of the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC), their data protection legislation offers an adequate guarantee of protection. In other cases, adequate data protection can be ensured by means of an appropriate contractual agreement, in particular by using standard contractual clauses, or by means of appropriate certification.


2. Data security

We put in place appropriate technical and organisational measures to guarantee data security, particularly during data processing.

Access to our website is secured by means of data transport encryption (SSL / TLS, in particular with the HTTPS protocol), which is generally indicated by a padlock in the address bar of most browsers.

This service is provided by the American company Google LLC. However, for users in the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland, responsibility lies with Google Ireland Limited.

In addition, Google attempts to track individual visitors to our website, even when they use different browsers or devices. This is known as multi-device tracking, and cookies are used for this purpose. It is important to note that the use of Google Analytics requires the IP (Internet Protocol) address of users, although this is not generally combined with other data by Google.

In all cases, Google anonymises your IP address (Internet Protocol) before carrying out the analysis. As a rule, your full IP address will not be transmitted to Google in the U
