  • Preference data, such as user settings, data from the analysis of the collected data (in particular behavioral data);
  • Other data that you make available to us about yourself.
3 How do we collect personal data?

We collect your personal data in a variety of ways. On the one hand, we collect your personal data that you have made available to us (e.g. by e-mail, telephone, post), that we receive from third parties (e.g. from business partners, authorities) and that we collect about you (e.g. from publicly accessible registers, websites, business partners).

3.1 Data provided
You provide us with your personal data when you interact with us, for example in the following circumstances:

  • When you communicate with our employees;
  • When you create a user account with us;
  • When you visit our company headquarters or other premises;
  • If you take part in our customer events and public events;
  • When you purchase our products or services (regardless of location, especially online);
  • If you register in order to use certain offers and services (e.g. newsletter, free WLAN);
  • If you take part in one of our competitions or prize draws.

The data provided includes, in particular, master data, communication data, registration data and contract data, but also preference data.

As a rule, the provision of personal data is voluntary, i.e. in most cases you are not obliged to disclose personal data to us. However, we must collect and process the personal data that is necessary or legally required for the processing of a contractual relationship and the fulfillment of the associated obligations, e.g. mandatory master data and contract data. Otherwise we will not be able to conclude or continue the respective contract.

If you transmit data about other persons (e.g. family members, employees) to us, we assume that you are authorized to do so and that this data is correct. Please ensure that these other persons are aware of this privacy policy.

If you do not provide us with certain personal data, this may mean that it is not possible to provide the associated service or conclude a contract. As a matter of principle, we will inform you where personal data requested by us is mandatory.

3.2 Data received
We may also receive personal data about you from third parties, such as the following third parties:

  • From business partners with whom we work, e.g. banks, insurance companies, sales and other contractual partners;
  • From people who communicate with us;
  • From credit reference agencies, e.g. when we obtain credit reports;
  • From address dealers or Swiss Post, e.g. for address updates
  • From providers of online services, e.g. Internet analysis services;
  • From authorities and courts, in connection with official and judicial proceedings.

The data received includes in particular master data, communication data, financial data and contract data, but also preference data.

3.3 Data collected
We may also collect your personal data ourselves or automatically, for example in the following circumstances:

  • When you use our offers;
  • If you make use of our services;
  • When you order and/or purchase products from us;
  • When you visit our website;
  • When we consult publicly accessible sources (e.g. public registers, websites, platforms);
  • If we obtain information about you from your organization or from another organization or company (e.g. for reference purposes in the application process, if you consent to this);
  • When we work with business partners;
  • When you click on a link in one of our newsletters or otherwise interact with one of our electronic marketing communications.

The data collected includes, in particular, behavioral data and technical data.

We can also derive further personal data from existing personal data, e.g. by evaluating behavioral data. Such derived personal data is often preference data.

4 For what purposes do we process personal data?

We process your personal data primarily in order to conclude and process our contracts with you, our customers and our business partners. In particular, we also process your personal data for the following purposes:

  • to communicate with you;
  • to provide you and our customers with our services (including websites) and to improve them;
  • to manage the business relationship with you and our customers;
  • for advertising, marketing, market research and product development;
  • to ensure your and our security and to prevent misuse (e.g. for IT security, theft, fraud and abuse prevention and for evidence purposes);
  • to comply with legal and regulatory obligations;
  • to assert our claims and defend ourselves against the claims of others;
  • to prepare and execute the sale or purchase of business divisions, companies or parts of companies and other transactions under company law and the associated transfer of personal data;
  • for business management.

When processing personal data for the purposes described in this statement, we rely, among other things, on our legitimate interest in maintaining, expanding and managing the business relationship and communicating with you as a business partner about our products and services.

You can give us your consent to process your personal data for certain purposes. Unless we have another legal basis, we process your personal data within the scope of and based on this consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. A revocation has no effect on processing that has already taken place.

5 Why and how do we share data?
We may disclose your personal data to trusted third parties where necessary or appropriate for the provision of our services or the fulfillment of the purposes defined in this Privacy Policy. We may disclose your personal data to the following categories of recipients: External service providers (e.g. IT service providers, auditors, freight forwarders, payment services); customers and other contractual partners; counterparties, their legal representatives and persons involved; business partners with whom we may need to coordinate the provision of services; authorities and courts. Please note that these recipients may in turn involve third parties, so that your data may also become accessible to them.

If we share your personal data with third parties who process your personal data on our behalf, this is done on the basis of our instructions and in accordance with our privacy policy and other appropriate confidentiality and security measures. For example, we use service providers to support the operation of our IT infrastructure, provide our products and services, improve our internal business processes and offer additional support to our customers.

In principle, we only process your personal data in Switzerland and the European Economic Area (EEA) (see also section 6 below). We use third-party services on our websites; please note our cookie policy (section 13 below) on independent data collection by third-party providers.

6 Warum und wie geben wir Daten ins Ausland weiter?
We may transfer your personal data to recipients in the European Economic Area (EEA), as well as to recipients in the USA and other countries that do not guarantee a level of data protection comparable to Swiss law (so-called third countries). We normally do this if it is necessary to fulfill a contract or to enforce legal claims. If we disclose data to other third countries and you are not already aware of this (e.g. from a contract or communication with us), the respective country, international body or at least the region can be found at the appropriate place in this privacy policy and in particular in the cookie policy. We only transfer your personal data to a third country if the data protection requirements are met (e.g. after concluding recognized standard data protection clauses or obtaining consent) or if we can rely on an exemption clause. An exception may exist in particular in cases of overriding public interests or if the execution of a contract that is in your interest requires such disclosure.
7 How do we use profiling?
Profiling” refers to the automated processing of personal data in order to analyze personal aspects or make predictions (e.g. analysis of personal interests and habits). As a rule, profiling is used to derive preference data. We use profiling in particular for the automatic processing of master data, contract data, behavioral data and preference data when using and purchasing our offers and services, but also in connection with our websites, events, competitions and prize draws. We use profiling in particular to improve our offers, to present them and our content in line with your needs, to provide you only with advertising and offers that are likely to be relevant to you and to decide which payment options are available to you based on a credit check. We can also link personal data from different sources as a basis for profiling in order to improve the quality of our analyses and forecasts.
8 Wie treffen wir automatisierte Einzelentscheidungen?
“Automated individual decisions” are decisions that are made fully automatically, i.e. without human involvement, and that may have legal consequences for the data subject or otherwise significantly affect them. As a rule, we do not use automated individual decisions; if we do, we will inform you separately in individual cases.
9 Wie schützen wir Daten?
We take appropriate technical (e.g. firewall, SSL encryption, password protection) and organizational (e.g. access restriction, training of authorized persons) security measures to protect the security of your personal data. We use these measures to protect your personal data against unauthorized or unlawful processing, access and/or unintentional loss, alteration or disclosure. Please always bear in mind that the transmission of information via the Internet and other electronic means entails certain security risks. We cannot guarantee the security of information transmitted in this way.
10 Wie lange bewahren wir Daten auf?
We store your personal data for as long as required by our processing purposes (see section 4), the statutory retention periods (usually five or 10 years) and our legitimate interests, in particular for documentation and evidence purposes, or if storage is technically necessary (e.g. in the case of backups or document management systems). We delete or anonymize your personal data, provided there are no legal or contractual obligations or technical reasons to the contrary, in principle after the storage and processing period has expired as part of our usual processes and in accordance with our retention policy.
11 Social media

We may operate pages and other online presences on social networks and other platforms operated by third parties (e.g. fan pages, channels, profiles) and collect and process data about you (in particular contact and profile data) that you or the social networks provide to us. We receive the data when you come into contact with us via our online presence (e.g. accessing and commenting on posts). We receive aggregated or otherwise sufficiently anonymized data from the platforms for evaluation so that we can further develop the contributions and services we offer. We process the data, in particular for communication, for marketing purposes (including advertising on these platforms) and for market research. We may redistribute content published by you or delete or restrict content from or about you in accordance with the usage guidelines. Personal data may also be processed outside Switzerland and the European Economic Area (EEA).

Furthermore, the platforms evaluate your use of our online presences and link this data with other data about you known to the platforms. They also process this data for their own purposes under their own responsibility, in particular for marketing and market research purposes (e.g. to personalize advertising) and to control their platforms (e.g. what content they show you).

When using the platforms, other legal documents (e.g. general terms and conditions and terms of use) apply in addition to the corresponding data protection declarations.

We currently use the following platforms:

  • LinkedIn of LinkedIn Ireland, Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland, whereby data may also be transferred to the USA. We are jointly responsible with LinkedIn and have concluded the so-called “Page Insights Joint Controller Addendum” ( You can find more information on data processing in LinkedIn’s privacy policy:
