Categories of data subjects
Depending on the service requested, individual persons can be partially or completely covered by the scope of the processing activity of this data protection notice. The groups of persons concerned include
hereinafter referred to collectively as “users”.
Purpose of the processing
The purposes of processing of personal data include:
Basis for the processing
Consent is obtained for the sending of newsletters, among other things. When contacting us (e.g. via contact form, e-mail, telephone or via social media), the user’s details are processed, for example, to process the contact request and to handle it. In rare cases we process personal data to fulfil our legal obligations.
Duration of data storage
The personal data of the person concerned shall be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply or storage is no longer necessary. Personal data is also stored for the time during which claims can be made against our company.
Furthermore, a storage can take place if regulations, laws or other rules require longer storage. Corresponding obligations to provide evidence and to retain data result from the Swiss Code of Obligations, among other things. The storage periods thereafter are generally ten years. The storage of personal usage data and cookies including IP addresses is limited to the period of time necessary for the fulfilment of the purpose.
Transfers to third countries
In most cases, your personal data will only be processed within Switzerland and the EU. If, however, in the case of individual applications, data is processed outside the EU, it will be transferred in accordance with the legal requirements of Art. 6 DSG. In other words, processing takes place, for example, on the basis of special guarantees, such as the officially recognised determination of a level of data protection corresponding to that of the EU or Switzerland or compliance with officially recognised special contractual obligations (so-called “standard contractual clauses”).
Countries in which we may transfer data include
This does not include the production clusters, as these are selected by the customer individually.
The processing is based on our legitimate interest in the above-mentioned purposes. The data collected from you in this way will be pseudonymised by technical precautions. It is therefore not possible to assign the data directly to your person. The data will not be stored together with other personal data of yours.
The following links will give you information on how to manage (and deactivate) cookies in the most important browsers:
Server log files
Every time you access our website, usage data is transmitted by your Internet browser and stored in log files (server log files). These stored data include, for example, the name of the page accessed, the date and time of access, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider as well as IP addresses. This data is processed for our legitimate interests and is used exclusively to ensure the trouble-free operation of our website and to improve our services.
Collection and processing when using the contact form
When using the contact form, we only collect your personal data (name, e-mail address, message text) to the extent that you have provided it. The data processing serves the purpose of establishing contact and initiating a contractual relationship. The processing is done in the interest of efficient communication. We use your e-mail address to process your enquiry or for the subsequent handling of contractual services.
Rapidmail for the purpose of sending newsletters
If you subscribe to our newsletter via our website, we assume that you consent to the saving of the e-mail address provided, as well as the exact time and the IP address of your device as proof that you are the owner of the e-mail -Address and agree to receive the newsletter. Further data are not collected via the order form. If the newsletter is ordered in another way, we will save your name and a note on how the order came about as proof of consent. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information. The dispatch takes place via a service provider commissioned by us, who receives this data for this purpose:
rapidmail GmbH, Augustinerplatz 2, 79098 Freiburg i.Br., Germany
Data protection declaration: www.rapidmail.de/datensicherheit
Neither we nor our service provider will pass this data on to third parties. Our newsletter can contain a code with which we can count how often the newsletter was opened and which links were clicked. We use this information to optimize the content of the newsletter. This information is summarized and not stored with your personal data. You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time using the “Unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The newsletter can then be ordered again at any time.
Calendly for the purpose of setting up meetings
You have the possibility to make appointments on our website. We use the online calendar “Calendly” to request and select an appointment. “Calendly” is an offer from Calendly, LLC, 3423 Piedmont Road NE, Atlanta, GA 30305-1754, United States. We have concluded a contract with them.
When you click on the button “Make Appointment”, you will be automatically connected to our Calendly appointment account. After choosing your appointment, confirming and entering your contact details and requests you will receive an email from Calendly confirming your appointment. You can find more information about Calendly and Calendly Privacy here: https://calendly.com/pages/privacy
Your details from the Calendly form, including the data you enter there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing your enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. This data remains with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for which it was stored ceases to apply (e.g. appointment made). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
LinkedIn for the purpose of showing ads
We use so-called conversion tracking with LinkedIn Insights Tag, a tool from LinkedIn Ireland, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland, on our website. For this purpose, the LinkedIn Insight Tag is integrated on our website and a cookie is placed on your device by LinkedIn. In this way, LinkedIn is informed that you have visited our website, and your IP address is also collected. Timestamps and events such as page views are also saved. This enables us to statistically evaluate the use of our website in order to continuously optimize it. In this way, we find out, for example, which LinkedIn ad or interaction on LinkedIn brought you to our website. This enables us to better control the display of our advertising.
Google Analytics for the purpose of optimizing our ad spend
This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are saved on your computer and that enable your use of the website to be analyzed. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server (which can be in the USA) and stored there.
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. As a result, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted to the USA. The full IP address will only be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

Cloudflare for the purpose of securing our webpage
A content delivery network (CDN), as provided by Cloudflare, is nothing more than a network of servers connected via the Internet. Cloudflare has distributed such servers all over the world to bring websites to your screen faster. Simply put, Cloudflare makes copies of our website and places them on their own servers. When you visit our website now, a load balancing system ensures that most of our website is delivered by the server that can display our website to you the fastest. A CDN significantly shortens the data transfer route to your browser. Thus, the content of our website is delivered to you by Cloudflare not only from our hosting server, but from servers from all over the world. The use of Cloudflare is particularly helpful for users from abroad, since here the page can be delivered from a server nearby. In addition to the fast delivery of websites, Cloudflare also offers various security services, such as DDoS protection or the web application firewall.
Cloudflare generally only forwards data that is controlled by website operators. The content is not determined by Cloudflare, but always by the website operator. In addition, Cloudflare may collect certain information about the use of our website and process data that is sent by us or for which Cloudflare has received instructions. In most cases, Cloudflare receives data such as contact information, IP addresses, security fingerprints, DNS log data and performance data for websites that are derived from browser activity. For example, log data helps Cloudflare identify new threats. In this way, Cloudflare can guarantee a high level of security protection for our website. Cloudflare processes this data as part of the services in compliance with the applicable laws.
For security reasons, Cloudflare also uses a cookie. The cookie (__cfduid) is used to identify individual users behind a shared IP address and to apply security settings for each individual user. This cookie becomes very useful, for example, if you use our website from a location with a number of infected computers. However, if your computer is trustworthy, we can recognize this by means of the cookie. In this way, you can surf our website unhindered despite infected PCs in the vicinity. It is also important to know that this cookie does not save any personal data. This cookie is essential for the Cloudflare security functions and cannot be deactivated.
Cloudflare only stores data logs for as long as necessary, and in most cases this data is deleted within 24 hours. Cloudflare also does not store any personal data, such as your IP address. However, there is information that Cloudflare stores indefinitely as part of its permanent logs in order to improve the overall performance of Cloudflare Resolver and to identify any security risks. You can read exactly which permanent logs are saved at https://developers.cloudflare.com/188.8.131.52/commitment-to-privacy/privacy-policy/privacy-policy/. All data that Cloudflare collects (temporarily or permanently) is cleaned of all personal data. All permanent logs are also anonymized by Cloudflare.
You can find more information on data protection at Cloudflare at https://www.cloudflare.com/de-de/privacypolicy/. For more information on the data Cloudflare collects, please visit https://blog.cloudflare.com/what-cloudflare-logs/.
WebinarGeek for the purpose of conducting webinars
We offer free webinars on our website. To conduct these webinars we use WebinarGeek (WebinarGeek B.V., Chroomstraat 12, Zoetermeer, Netherlands). The provider is based in the Netherlands and is therefore directly subject to the geographical scope of the GDPR. There is consequently no transfer of personal data to a third country.
If you register for one of our webinars, WebinarGeek will be informed of your name and email address and you will receive an invitation link. After clicking on the invitation link, a connection to the servers of WebinarGeek is established. The servers are informed which of our pages you have visited (referrer). In addition, your IP address is transmitted to the provider server. We have deactivated the tracking functions of the he provider.
The purpose of processing in the context of the webinar is to impart specialist knowledge in data law. The purpose of sending e-mails via the provider is the proper provision of the webinar (dial-in link), the reminder of upcoming appointments and the follow-up to the webinars.
A Data Processing Agreement with the provider is in place.
Collection, processing and use of personal data for orders
When you place an order, we collect and use your personal data only to the extent necessary to fulfill and process your order and to process your inquiries. The provision of the data marked as mandatory in the fields is necessary for the conclusion of the contract. Failure to provide this information means that no contract can be concluded.
In all cases we strictly observe the legal requirements. Appropriate contract processing agreements have been concluded with the contract processors in order to guarantee data protection.
Zoom for the purpose of Video Communications
We use the “Zoom” tool to hold telephone conferences, online meetings, video conferences and / or webinars (hereinafter: “Online Meetings”). “Zoom” is a service provided by Zoom Video Communications, Inc., which is based in the United States. We are responsible for data processing that is directly related to the implementation of “online meetings”.
Note: If you access the “Zoom” website, the “Zoom” provider is responsible for the data processing. Calling up the website is only required to use “Zoom” in order to download the software for using “Zoom”. You can also use “Zoom” if you enter the respective meeting ID and any other access data for the meeting directly in the “Zoom” app. If you do not want to or cannot use the “Zoom” app, the basic functions can also be used via a browser version, which you can also find on the “Zoom” website.
When using “Zoom” different types of data are processed. The scope of the data also depends on the details of the data you provide before or when participating in an “online meeting”.
The following personal data are processed:
User information: first name, last name, telephone (optional), email address, password (if “single sign-on” is not used), profile picture (optional), Department (optional), Meeting metadata: topic, description (optional), participant IP addresses, device / hardware information
For recordings (optional): MP4 file of all video, audio and presentation recordings, M4A file of all audio recordings, text file of the online meeting chat.
When dialing in with the phone: information on the incoming and outgoing phone number, country name, start and end time. If necessary, further connection data such as the IP address of the device can be saved.
Text, audio and video data: You may have the option of using the chat, question or survey functions in an “online meeting”. In this respect, the text entries you make are processed in order to display them in the “online meeting” and, if necessary, to record them. In order to enable the display of video and the playback of audio, the data from the microphone of your terminal device and any video camera on the terminal device are processed accordingly for the duration of the meeting. You can switch off or mute the camera or microphone yourself at any time using the “Zoom” applications.
In order to take part in an “online meeting” or to enter the “meeting room”, you must at least provide information about your name. We use “Zoom” to conduct “online meetings”. If we want to record “online meetings”, we will inform you transparently in advance and – if necessary – ask for your consent. The fact of the recording is also displayed in the “Zoom” app. If necessary for the purpose of logging the results of an online meeting, we will log the chat content. However, this will usually not be the case. In the case of webinars, we can also process the questions asked by webinar participants for the purpose of recording and following up webinars.
If you are registered as a user with “Zoom”, reports on “Online Meetings” (meeting metadata, data on telephone dial-in, questions and answers in webinars, survey function in webinars) can be saved in “Zoom” for up to one month.
Personal data that are processed in connection with participation in “online meetings” are generally not passed on to third parties unless they are intended to be passed on. Please note that content from “online meetings”, as well as from personal meeting meetings, is often used to communicate information with customers, interested parties or third parties and is therefore intended to be passed on.
Other recipients: The provider of “Zoom” necessarily receives knowledge of the above data, insofar as this is provided for in our order processing contract with “Zoom”. “Zoom” is a service that is provided by a provider from the USA. Processing of personal data therefore also takes place in a third country. We have concluded an order processing contract with the provider of “Zoom”. An adequate level of data protection is guaranteed by the conclusion of the so-called EU standard contractual clauses.
Microsoft Teams for the purpose of Video Communications
We would like to inform you below about the processing of personal data in connection with the use of “Microsoft Teams”.
We use the “Microsoft Teams” tool to hold conference calls, online meetings, video conferences and / or webinars (hereinafter: “Online Meetings”). “Microsoft Teams” is a service from Microsoft Corporation.
Note: If you access the “Microsoft Teams” website, the provider of “Microsoft Teams” is responsible for data processing. Accessing the website is only required to use “Microsoft Teams” to download the software for using “Microsoft Teams”.
If you do not want to or cannot use the “Microsoft Teams” app, you can also use “Microsoft Teams” via your browser. The service is then also provided via the “Microsoft Teams” website. When using “Microsoft Teams”, different types of data are processed. The scope of the data also depends on the details of the data you provide before or when participating in an “online meeting”.
The following personal data are processed:

You can switch off or mute the camera or microphone yourself at any time using the “Microsoft Teams” applications.
We use “Microsoft Teams” to conduct “online meetings”. If we want to record “online meetings”, we will inform you transparently in advance and – if necessary – ask for your consent. The chat content is logged when using Microsoft Teams. We store the chat content for a period of one month. If it is necessary for the purpose of logging the results of an online meeting, we will log the chat content. However, this will usually not be the case.
Personal data that are processed in connection with participation in “online meetings” are generally not passed on to third parties unless they are intended to be passed on. Please note that content from “online meetings” as well as from personal meetings is often used to communicate information with customers, interested parties or third parties and is therefore intended to be passed on.
Other recipients: The provider of “Microsoft Teams” necessarily receives knowledge of the above data, insofar as this is provided for in our order processing contract with “Microsoft Teams”. Data processing outside of Switzerland does not take place, as we have limited our storage location to data centers in Switzerland. However, we cannot rule out that the routing of data takes place via internet servers that are located outside of Switzerland. This can be the case in particular if participants in an “online meeting” are in a third country. However, the data is encrypted during transport over the Internet and is thus protected against unauthorized access by third parties.
