GPTW Switzerland AG, Schiffbaustrasse 7, 8005 Zurich, is the operator of this website, available at www.greatplacetowork.ch, and the provider of the services and/or products offered and described on this website. GPTW Switzerland AG is responsible for the collection, processing and use of your data and must ensure compliance with Swiss law and any applicable European law.
We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration. In the following, we inform you about which data is collected on this website and how it is used. You will also find out how you can check the accuracy of this information and how you can arrange for us to delete this data.
In cooperation with our hosting providers, we strive to protect the databases as well to protect against foreign access, loss, misuse or falsification. We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
By using this website, you consent to the collection, processing and use of data as described below. This website can generally be visited without registration. In the process, data such as pages accessed or the name of the file accessed, date and time are stored on the server for statistical purposes without this data being directly related to your person. Personal data, in particular name, address or e-mail address are collected on a voluntary basis as far as possible. No data will be passed on to third parties without your consent.
Scope of application
Personal data is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable person. A data subject is a person about whom personal data is processed. Processing includes any handling of personal data, regardless of the means and procedures used, in particular the storage, disclosure, acquisition, deletion, storage, modification, destruction and use of personal data.
We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law. Furthermore, to the extent and insofar as the European Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) is applicable, we process personal data in accordance with the following legal bases in connection with Art. 6 Para. 1 GDPR:
lit. a) the data subject has given consent to the processing of his or her personal data for one or more specific purposes;
lit. b) processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract;
lit. c) processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject;
lit. processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person;
lit. f) processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child. Legitimate interests are in particular our business interest in being able to provide our website, information security, the enforcement of our own legal claims and compliance with Swiss law.
We process personal data for the period of time required for the relevant purpose or purposes. In the case of longer-term storage obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we restrict the processing accordingly.
Collection, use and processing of personal data
When visiting our website
When you visit this website, certain data is automatically stored on our servers or on servers of services and products that we have obtained and/or installed for system administration, statistical or backup purposes or for tracking purposes. This may include the following data:
- the name of your internet service provider
- your IP address (under certain circumstances)
- the version of your browser software
- the operating system of the computer used to access this website
- the date
- the time
- the website from which you are visiting this website
- the search words you used to find our website
Under certain circumstances, this data may allow conclusions to be drawn about a specific visitor. However, personal data will not be used in this context.
Fulfilment and processing of orders
When you order our services or products, we collect and use personal data from you, such as your first and last name, address, e-mail address, payment details and any other data such as telephone numbers or date of birth, as well as any other data that you enter voluntarily. Your data may also be enriched with data acquired from third parties.
By ordering our services or products and entering your data on our website, you consent to the use of your entered data for service-related use.
Disclosure to third parties
Your data will be passed on to our partners (third parties) if this is necessary for the processing of your orders. If we pass on data to external service providers, technical and organisational measures are in place to ensure that the transfer is carried out in accordance with the legal provisions of data protection. If you provide us with personal or company-related data of your own accord, we will not use, process or pass on this data beyond the scope permitted by law or specified by you in the declaration of consent. We only share your data with external service providers insofar as this is necessary for the processing of a contract and these service providers have agreed to the corresponding confidentiality and due diligence regulations. Beyond that, we only pass on your data if we are obliged to do so by law or by official or court orders.
When you subscribe to our newsletter, you consent that we can use the data you provide, such as your first and last name, address, e-mail address and any data you voluntarily enter in your user profile, to send you the newsletter. You can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future by unsubscribing from the newsletter.
Social media plug-in
We use the social plug-ins listed below, among others, on our website in order to make our company better known (for advertising purposes). The responsibility for data protection-compliant operation is to be ensured by the respective provider. Data processing in connection with these plug-ins is carried out with your consent when you use these plug-ins.
If you use the services of these social networks independently of or in connection with our website, the social networks evaluate your use of the plug-in. In this case, information about the plug-in is forwarded to the social networks.
Plug-ins of the social network LinkedIn Corporation, USA, are installed on our website. You can recognise the LinkedIn plug-in (LinkedIn Recommended button) by the LinkedIn logo. When you access a page of our website that contains such a plug-in, a direct connection is established between your browser and the LinkedIn server. LinkedIn thereby receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click the LinkedIn button while you are logged into your LinkedIn account, you can link the content of our pages on your LinkedIn profile. This enables LinkedIn to assign the visit to our pages to your user account. We hereby point out that we, as the provider of the pages, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by LinkedIn. For more information, please visit: www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy.
Google Maps services are used on our website (e.g. in-screen or via interfaces/API). Google LLC, USA, may therefore process information about your actual location. Google uses various technologies such as IP addresses, GPS and other sensors to determine location, which provide Google with information for example about nearby devices, WLAN access points or mobile phone masts.
You can request information about your data stored by us at any time. We kindly ask you to send a request for information by e-mail to the address below. Along with the request, proof of identity must be sent to the same address.
You have the possibility to request the deletion or correction of your data at any time. You are of course also entitled at any time to revoke any consent you have given to the use or processing of personal data with effect for the future.
Stored data will be deleted by us when it is no longer required for the stated purpose. With regard to the deletion of data, it is important to note that we are subject to certain legal obligations which require us to retain certain data. We have to comply with this obligation. If you wish to delete data that is subject to the legal obligation to retain data, the data will be blocked in our system and only used to fulfil the legal obligation to retain data. After expiry of the retention period, your request for deletion will be fulfilled.
If your personal data is processed on the basis of legitimate interests, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data if there are grounds for doing so that arise from your particular situation or if the objection is directed against direct marketing. In the latter case, you have a general right of objection, which is applied by us and does not require you to specify a particular situation.
Furthermore, you also have the option of receiving your personal data that you have provided to us or requesting that it be transferred to another person responsible.
We kindly ask you to write us an e-mail at CH_info@greatplacetowork.com for this purpose. In the event of a disproportionately large effort, we retain the right to demand proof of identity from you in advance as well as payment of the effective costs.
