2 How we collect and process personal information
1The term «Personal information» or «Personal data» refers to information relating to an identified person or information that can be traced to an identified person. The term refers to your own personal information as a natural person, or that of employees, clients, contractors, target groups, agencies, job applicants, website visitors, consumers, and associated companies.
2We collect a variety of personal data, in the scope outlined above. In particular, we collect the following personal information, automatically or by manual means:
Personal information: First and last name(s); date of birth and age; gender; residential address; civil status; place of origin/ nationality; billing address; credit card and banking information; language settings; telephone and fax number(s); email addresse(s); company/ companies; position(s); credit rating and registry information; business relationship; employment history (e.g. CV, certificates, diplomas).
Information related to client activities: contract information (incl. content, date, contract partner); session data related to physical meetings and website visits (incl. duration, frequency, language and country settings).
Information related to browser and operating system, internet protocol addresses, search words, search results, ratings given; telephone, fax and e-mail communications, audio messages, text messages (SMS), multimedia messages (MMS), video messages, instant messages, website contact form, etc.
3If you provide someone else‘s personal information (e.g. family members, work colleagues), please make sure that the individual or individuals in question have read this Policy and only share their personal information, if they have authorised you to and the data is correct.
3 How we protect personal information
1We have technical and operational safety procedures in place to secure personal information against unauthorised and unlawful processing, unintentional loss, alteration, publication, and unauthorised access.
2However, users should be aware that the transmission of data via the internet and other electronic means always carries certain security risks and that we cannot guarantee the security of information transmitted in this way or otherwise processed.
3If you use an open network or third-party network to share personal data you should be aware that data may get lost and third parties may potentially access, collect and use the information without your consent.
4 Storage period
1We store personal information for as long as we deem it necessary and appropriate under applicable law or as long as it is needed for the purposes it was collected for. For instance, data can be stored for the period of time a legal claim could be made against our company (i.e. period of limitation), as long as we are legally obliged, or our legitimate interests require (e.g. for evidence or documentation). As soon as your information is no longer needed for any of these purposes, as a rule, it will be deleted (to the extent possible) or anonymised. Shorter storage periods of up to twelve months apply to operational data (e.g. system protocols, logs).
5 Rights of data subjects
1Data subjects have the right, within the scope of applicable law, to be informed about whether any of their personal information is being stored and processed by us, and they can request a duplicate.
2In addition, and within the scope of applicable law, data subjects have the right to have inaccurate information held about them rectified, to object to the processing of their data or, in particular circumstances, to request the deletion of their personal information. Data subjects can also object to and restrict the processing of their data. Please note that the deletion of certain information may mean that we cannot fulfil orders and that we are no longer able to send you communications such as invites. Furthermore, you have the right to receive a duplicate of your personal information on a machine-readable disc and to share it with a third party.
3To exercise these rights, you have to verify your identity (e.g. by providing a copy of your ID in case your identity cannot otherwise be verified). In order to enforce your rights, you can contact us at the address specified under 6.
4Data subjects can exercise their privacy rights at any time. If a data subject does not agree with how we handle and process their data, they have the option to report this to the Eidgenössischer Datenschutz- und Öffentlichkeitsbeauftragter (EDÖB) and/ or the designated regulatory bodies of the EU.
