2.3 Nature, scope, and purpose
We process the personal data that is to provide our online services in a permanent, user-friendly, secure, and reliable manner. Such personal data may fall into the categories of inventory and contact data, content data, metadata, or marginal data, as well as usage data, location data, contract data, and payment data.
We process personal data for the necessary for the respective purpose or purposes, or as required by law. Personal data which no longer needs to be processed will be anonymized or deleted.
In principle, we process personal data only with the consent of the data subject, unless such processing is permitted for other legal reasons, for example for the performance of a contract with the data subject or in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract, to protect our overriding legitimate interests, because the processing is evident from the circumstances, or following prior information.
In this context, we mainly process information provided to us by a data subject voluntarily themselveswhen making contact – for example via post or e-mail, in a contact form, on social media, or by telephone – or when registering for a user account. We may store such information in an address book or using comparable tools, for example. If you transmit personal data to us via third parties, you are obliged to guarantee data protection vis-à-vis these 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 accessible sources, or collect when providing our online services, if and to the extent such processing is permitted for legal reasons.
Personal data from applications is only processed to the extent necessary for the assessment of suitability for an employment relationship or for the subsequent execution of an employment contract. The personal data required for the completion of an application procedure is derived from the information requested or communicated, for example as part of a job description. Applicants have the option of voluntarily submitting further information for their respective applications.
2.4 Processing of personal data by third parties, in Switzerland and abroad
We may have personal data processed by third parties, in particular by order processors. Alternatively, we may process data jointly with third parties and with the help of third parties, or transfer it to third parties. In particular, these third parties are providers whose services we make use of. We also guarantee adequate data protection by such third parties.
Such third parties are located in Switzerland and in the European Economic Area (EEA), including the European Union (EU) and the Principality of Liechtenstein. However, such third parties may also be located in other countries of the world and elsewhere in the universe, provided that their data protection laws, in the opinion of the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) and – if and to the extent that the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is applicable – in the opinion of the European Commission – guarantee adequate data protection, or if adequate data protection is guaranteed for other reasons, such as, for example, by a corresponding contractual agreement, in particular on the basis of standard contractual clauses, or by a corresponding certification. For third parties in the United States of America (USA), certification in accordance with the Privacy Shield can guarantee adequate data protection. Exceptionally, such a third party may be located in a country without adequate data protection, provided that the data protection requirements, such as the express consent of the data subject, are met.
3. Rights of data subjects
Data subjects whose personal data we process have rights granted by Swiss data protection law. These rights include the right of access as well as the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of the personal data processed.
Data subjects whose personal data we process may – if and to the extent that the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is applicable – obtain confirmation free of charge as to whether we process their personal data and, if so, request information on the processing of their personal data, restrict the processing of their personal data, and exercise their rights to data portability, rectification, erasure («right to be forgotten»), restriction, or completion of their personal data.
Data subjects whose personal data we process may – if and to the extent that GDPR is applicable – revoke their consent at any time with effect for the future and object to the processing of their personal data at any time.
Data subjects whose personal data we process have the right to appeal to a competent supervisory authority. The supervisory authority for data protection in Switzerland is the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC).

However, despite such measures, the processing of personal data on the Internet remains subject to security breaches. We therefore cannot guarantee absolute data security.
