Other purposes: To inform you about new products and services we offer, to send you invitations to events, publications, alerts, updates, news about us or similar. This may take the form of newsletters and other periodic contact (electronically, by post, by telephone). You can reject such communication at any time or refuse or revoke your consent to such communication.
We collect and record this information when you interact with us, for example when you communicate with our employees, register to receive information by email, when you attend a meeting or event or as part of an application process. We also collect or create personal data in the course of providing our services and when we obtain personal data from other sources, for example by consulting publicly available sources to update your details.
As part of the application process, we consult job-related social networks, the internet, media and, with your consent, obtain references.
Insofar as this is permitted, we also obtain certain data from publicly accessible sources (e.g. debt collection registers, land registers, commercial registers, media, Internet incl. social media) or receive such data from our clients and their employees, from authorities or other third parties.
If you provide us with data about other persons (e.g. family members), we assume that you are authorized to do so, that this data is correct and that you have ensured that these persons are informed of this disclosure, insofar as there is an obligation to inform these persons.
We may disclose your personal data to trusted third parties in connection with the above-mentioned purposes of processing to the extent permitted by law, including to the following categories of recipients:
Your personal data is mainly processed and stored in Switzerland and the European Economic Area (EEA). If, in exceptional cases, data is transferred to a country that does not guarantee an adequate level of data protection, the recipient will be obliged to ensure compliance with an adequate level of data protection by means of appropriate contracts (in particular on the basis of the so-called standard contractual clauses of the European Commission, which can be found here: https://eur-lex.europa.eu/eli/dec_impl/2021/914/oj? including the amendments required for Switzerland) or so-called Binding Corporate Rules for an adequate level of protection or rely on the statutory exceptions of consent, contract performance, the establishment, exercise or enforcement of legal claims, overriding public interests, published personal data or because it is necessary to protect the integrity of the data subjects.
You are entitled to request detailed information about whether we process personal data about you and, if so, what personal data we process, why we process it, how long we store it, if available, the information about the origin of the personal data, the categories of recipients to whom personal data is disclosed and the countries to which personal data is transferred and on what basis this is done.
You are also entitled to request a copy of your personal data. You can also have your data corrected or deleted, restrict our processing activities relating to this information and object to the processing of your personal data.
Please note that conditions or exceptions may apply to these rights (e.g. because we are obliged to retain the data). We reserve the right to redact copies for reasons of data protection or confidentiality or to provide only excerpts. The exercise of your rights may make our contractually agreed service impossible and may, for example, lead to early termination of the contract or cost consequences. Where this is not already contractually regulated, we will inform you of this in advance. Even if you have withdrawn your consent or requested the deletion of your data, we are still authorized to process your personal data to the extent required or permitted by law.
You have the right to assert your claims in court or to lodge a complaint with a local supervisory authority, in Switzerland with the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner.
