excent.ch – Privacy policy

We greatly appreciate your interest in the services of excent AG, CH-8832 Wollerau, Switzerland – hereinafter referred to as “excent“. As a trust, consulting and outsourcing company, data protection is given a very high priority at excent. It is possible to use the excent web pages without supplying any personal information. However, if a data subject wishes to make use of excent‘s special services via our web pages, processing of personal data may be required. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, the data subject generally must consent to us processing their data.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, email address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations that apply for excent. In this privacy policy, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data that we collect, use and process. This privacy policy will also inform data subjects of their rights.

As the data controller, excent has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed via its web pages. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmission is in principle subject to security vulnerabilities, and so absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means.

DEFINITIONS

Our privacy policy is based on the terms used by the European guideline and regulation provider when the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was issued. Our privacy policy is intended to be easy to read and understand, both for the public and for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.

In this privacy policy, we use the following terms, among others:

PERSONAL DATA

Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as the “data subject”). Identifiable refers to a person who can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

DATA SUBJECT

The data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the data controller.

PROCESSING

Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, deletion or destruction.

RESTRICTION OF PROCESSING

Restriction of processing involves tagging stored personal data with the aim of limiting its future processing.

PROFILING

Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.

PSEUDONYMISATION

Pseudonymisation means the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

THE DATA CONTROLLER OR CONTROLLER OF PROCESSING PERSONAL DATA

The data controller means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of processing personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the data controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.

PROCESSOR

The processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the data controller.

RECIPIENT

The recipient means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body to which the personal data is disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients.

THIRD PARTIES

A third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, data controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the data controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.

CONSENT

Consent is any statement of intent voluntarily and unambiguously given by the data subject in an informed and unambiguous manner in the form of a statement or other unambiguous confirming act that indicates to the data subject that they have consented to the processing of their personal data.

NAME AND ADDRESS OF THE DATA CONTROLLER

The data controller within the meaning of the general data protection regulation, other data protection laws in the Member States of the European Union and other provisions of a data protection character is:

excent AG
Sihleggstrasse 23
8832 Wollerau
Switzerland

Tel.: +41 44 787 15 00
Email: info@excent.ch
Website: www.excent.ch

Any data subject can contact our data protection officer directly at any time with any questions or suggestions regarding data protection.

COOKIES

The web pages of excent use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored and stored on a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many web pages and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters through which web pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows web pages and servers that have been visited to distinguish the individual’s browser from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A particular web browser can be recognised and identified by the unique cookie ID.

The use of cookies enables excent to provide users of its web pages with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without cookies.

The use of cookies enables optimisation of the information and offers on our web pages for the user. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognise the users of our web pages. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our web pages. For example, the user of a web page that uses cookies does not have to re-enter their access data each time they visit the web page because the web page and the cookie stored on the user’s computer system remembers the information. Another example is the cookie of a shopping basket in the online shop. The online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart using a cookie.

The data subject can prevent cookies being set by our web pages at any time by appropriately setting their browser, thus permanently objecting to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time using an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in their Internet browser, not all functions of our web pages may be entirely usable.

COLLECTION OF GENERAL DATA AND INFORMATION

The excent web pages collect a series of general data and information with each access by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information are stored in the server’s log files. We may record (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the web page from which an accessing system reaches our web page (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-pages which are accessed via an accessing system on our web pages, (5) the date and time the web page was accessed, (6) an Internet Protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service providers of the accessing system, and (8) other similar data and information used for security purposes in the event of attacks on our IT systems.

The general data and information do not allow excent to draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is required to (1) correctly deliver the contents of our web pages, (2) optimise the contents of our web pages and the advertising for them, (3) ensure the permanent functionality of our IT systems and the technology of our web pages, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber-attack. The anonymously collected data and information are therefore evaluated by excent statistically with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data that we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

REGISTRATION ON OUR WEB PAGE

The data subject has the option of registering on our web pages by providing personal data. The personal data to be sent to the data controller is taken from the respective input screen used for registration. The personal data entered by the data subject is collected and stored solely for internal use by the data controller and for its own purposes. The data controller may arrange for its transfer to one or more processors, such as a parcel service, who will also use the personal data exclusively for internal use attributable to the data controller.

By registering on our web pages, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the data subject, the date and time of registration are also stored. The context of this data storage is such that it is only in this way that misuse of our services can be prevented, whereby, if necessary, this data will serve to clarify committed offenses. In this respect, it is necessary to store this data to protect the controller. This data will not be passed on to third parties unless this is required by law or for the purposes of criminal prosecution.

The registration of the data subject, in which personal data is voluntary provided, is intended to enable the data controller to offer the data subject content or services that may only be offered to registered users due to the nature of the matter in question. Registered persons are free to modify the personal data provided during registration at any time or to delete it completely from the database of the data controller.

The data controller will inform any data subject at any time, upon request, of which personal data relating to the data subject are stored. Furthermore, the data controller shall correct or delete personal data at the request or notice of the data subject, provided that there is no legal obligation to retain the data in question. All employees of the data controller are available for the data subject to contact in this regard.

NEWSLETTER SUBSCRIPTION

Users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company’s newsletter on the web pages of excent. The input screen used when ordering the newsletter determines what personal data is transmitted to the data controller.

excent informs its customers and business partners at regular intervals using a newsletter the presents company offers. Our company newsletter can only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid email address and (2) the data subject registers to receive the newsletter. For legal reasons, a confirmation email will be sent to the email address entered by a data subject for the first time for newsletter mailing using the double-opt-in procedure. This confirmation email serves to check whether the owner of the email address has authorised the receipt of the newsletter as the data subject.

When registering for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system used by the data subject at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration, as assigned by the internet service provider (ISP). The collection of this data is necessary in order to trace the (possible) misuse of a data subject’s email address at a later point in time and therefore serves the legal protection of the data controller.

The personal data collected as part of a subscription to the newsletter will be used exclusively to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter may be notified by email if this is necessary for operation of the newsletter service or registration, as might be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter or technical changes. The personal data collected in the context of the newsletter service will not be passed on to third parties. Subscription to our newsletter may be terminated by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has given us for sending the newsletter, can be revoked at any time. There is a link in each newsletter that can be used to revoke the consent. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the web pages or to communicate this to the data controller another way.

EMAIL TRACKING

The emails of excent may contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in emails that are sent in HTML format to enable recording and analysis of log data. This allows statistical evaluation of the success or failure of email campaigns. Using the embedded tracking pixel, excent can detect whether and when an email was opened by the data subject and which links in the email were accessed by the data subject.

The personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in emails is stored and evaluated by the data controller in order to optimise delivery of the newsletter and to better adapt the content of future newsletters to the data subject’s interests. The data will not be disclosed to third parties. Once consent is revoked, this personal data will be deleted by the data controller. Unsubscribing from the excent newsletter automatically indicates revocation of consent.

CONTACT VIA THE WEB PAGE

Due to legal regulations, excent‘s web pages contain information that enables customers to contact our company quickly via electronic means, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general so-called electronic mail address (email address). If a data subject contacts the data controller by email or through a contact form, the personal data provided by the data subject will be saved automatically. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller is stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. We will not pass on this personal information to third parties.

COMMENT FUNCTION IN THE WEB PAGE BLOG

excent offers users the opportunity to post comments on individual blog posts on a blog that is located in the web pages. A blog is a web-based, usually publicly accessible portal in which one or more people who are called bloggers or web bloggers can post articles or write down thoughts in blog posts. The blog posts can usually be commented on by third parties.

If a data subject posts a comment in the blog, not only the comments left by the data subject, but also information on the time the comment was made as well as the username (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject are saved and published. The data subject’s IP address as assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) is also logged. The IP address is stored for security reasons, and in the event that the data subject violates the rights of third parties, or posts illegal content through a given comment. Storage of such personal data is therefore in the data controller’s own interest, so that it can be exonerated if there is a violation of the law. This personal data is not disclosed to third parties, unless such disclosure is required by law or for the data controller’s legal defence.

SUBSCRIPTION TO COMMENTS ON THE WEB PAGE BLOG

The comments posted in the excent blog can be subscribed to by third parties. In particular, a commenter has the option of subscribing to the comments following their comments on a particular blog post.

If a data subject decides for the option of subscribing to comments, the data controller will send an automatic confirmation email to check the double opt-in procedure as to whether the owner of the specified email address decided in favour of this option. The option of subscribing to comments can be ended at any time.

ROUTINE DELETION AND BLOCKING OF PERSONAL DATA

The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or so long as this is granted by the European issuer of directives and regulations or another legislator in laws or regulations to which the data controller is subject.

If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period prescribed by the European issuer of directives and regulations or another competent legislator expires, the personal data will be blocked as a matter of course or deleted in accordance with legal requirements.

RIGHTS OF THE DATA SUBJECT

A) RIGHT TO CONFIRMATION

Every data subject shall have the right granted by the European issuer of directives and regulations to demand confirmation from the data controller of whether personal data concerning them is being processed. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to confirmation, they may contact an employee of the data controller at any time.

B) Right to be Notified

Any data subject whose personal data is processed shall have the right granted by the European issuer of directives and regulations to obtain, at any time and free of charge, information from the data controller concerning the stored personal data relating to them and a copy of that information. Furthermore, the European regulator has granted the data subject the following information:

  • The purposes of processing.
  • The categories of personal data concerned.
  • The recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data has been or will be disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries or international organisations.
  • Where possible, the envisaged period for which the personal data will be stored, or, if not possible, the criteria used to determine that period.
  • The existence of a right to rectification or deletion of the personal data concerning you or of a restriction of the processing by the data controller or of a right to object to such processing.
  • The existence of the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.
  • Where the personal data are not collected from the data subject, any available information as to their source.
  • The existence of automated decision-making including profiling according to Art. 22(1) (4) GDPR and – at least in these cases – meaningful information about the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing on the data subject. The data subject also has a right to information concerning the disclosure of their personal data to a third party or to an international organisation. If this is the case, then the data subject has the right to obtain information about the appropriate guarantees in connection with the transfer.

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of access to information, they may contact an employee of the data controller at any time.

C) RIGHT TO rectification

Each data subject whose personal data is processed shall have the right granted by the European issuer of directives and regulations to request the immediate rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning them. Furthermore, taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject has the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary declaration.

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to rectification, they may contact an employee of the data controller at any time.

D) RIGHT TO DELETION (RIGHT TO BE FORGOTTEN)

Each data subject whose personal data is processed shall have the right granted by the European issuer of directives and regulations to obtain from the data controller the deletion of personal data concerning them without undue delay, and the data controller shall have the obligation to delete this personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies and so long as processing is not necessary:

  • The personal data has been collected for purposes or processed in ways that are no longer necessary.
  • The data subject withdraws their consent to the processing pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR or Art. 9 (2) (a) GDPR and there is no other legal basis for processing.
  • The data subject submits an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR, and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for processing, or the data subject submits an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (2) GDPR.
  • The personal data has been unlawfully processed.
  • The personal data must be deleted for compliance with a legal obligation under European Union or Member State law to which the data controller is subject.
  • The personal data was collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Art. 8 (1) of the GDPR.
    If any of the above reasons are correct and an individual wishes to arrange for the deletion of personal data that is stored by excent, they may contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The excent employee will arrange for the deletion request to be complied with without delay.

If the personal data has been made public by excent and our company is responsible pursuant to Art. 17 (1) GDPR, then excent shall take appropriate measures, including of a technical nature, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform other data controllers who process the published personal data that the data subject has requested the deletion of all links to this personal data, or of copies or replications of this personal data, from these other data controllers, insofar as processing of the data is not necessary. The excent employee will arrange the necessary measures in individual cases.

E) RIGHT TO RESTRICT PROCESSING

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European issuer of directives and regulations to demand that the data controller restrict processing where one of the following conditions applies:

  • The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period enabling the data controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
  • The processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the deletion of the personal data and requests the restriction of its use instead.
  • The data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but it is required to by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
  • The data subject has objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) of the GDPR and it has not yet been determined whether the legitimate reasons of the data controller outweigh those of the data subject.
    If any one of the above-mentioned conditions is fulfilled and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by excent, they can contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The excent employee will then restrict the processing.

F) RIGHT TO DATA PORTABILITY

Each data subject whose personal data is processed shall have the right granted by the European issuer of directives and regulations to receive personal data relating to them, and provided by the data subject to a data controller, in a structured, current and machine-readable format. The data subject also has the right to transmit this data to another data controller without being hindered by the data controller providing the personal data, insofar as that processing is carried out on the basis of consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR or Art. 9 (2) (a) GDPR or based on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR and processing is carried out by means of automated procedures, except where such processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on the data controller.

Furthermore, in exercising their right to data portability pursuant to Art. 20 (1) GDPR, the data subject has the right to have the personal data transmitted directly from one data controller to another data controller, insofar as this is technically feasible and if this does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.

The data subject can contact an employee of excent at any time to assert the right to data portability.

G) RIGHT TO OBJECTION

Each data subject whose personal data is processed has the right granted by the European issuer for directives and regulations, for reasons arising from their particular situation, to at any time oppose the processing of personal data relating to them which is undertaken on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (e) or f GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

excent will no longer process personal data in the event of an objection, unless we can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing, which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If excent processes personal data in order to carry out direct advertising, the data subject has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to any profiling connected with such direct advertising. If the data subject objects to excent‘s processing for direct marketing purposes, excent will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

For reasons arising from their particular situation, the data subject also has the right to object to processing of personal data relating to them, which is performed at excent for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 (1) of the GDPR, unless such processing is necessary to fulfil a task in the public interest.

To exercise the right of objection, the data subject may directly contact any employee of excent or any other employee. The data subject shall also be free to exercise their right to objection in relation to the use of information society services by means of automated procedures using technical specifications, Directive 2002/58/EC notwithstanding.

H) AUTOMATED DECISIONS ON A CASE-BY-CASE BASIS, INCLUDING PROFILING

Any data subject affected by the processing of personal data shall have the right conferred by the European issuer for directives and regulations not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which has a legal effect or similarly appreciably affects its performance. unless the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller; or (2) permitted by Union or Member State legislation to which the data controller is subject and that legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and the legitimate interests of the data subject; or (3) with the express consent of the data subject.

If the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller or (2) is made with the express consent of the data subject, excent shall take appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a data controller, to state their own position and to challenge the decision.

If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated individual decision-making, they may contact an employee of the data controller at any time.

i) RIGHT TO REVOKE CONSENT AS PER DATA PROTECTION LAW

Each data subject whose personal data is processed shall have the right granted by the European issuer of directives and regulations to revoke their consent to the processing of their personal data at any time.

If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to revoke consent, they may contact an employee of the data controller at any time.

DATA PROTECTION FOR APPLICATIONS AND IN THE APPLICATION PROCEDURE

The data controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application procedure. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends corresponding application documents to the data controller by electronic means, for example by email or via a web form on the web pages. If the data controller concludes a contract of employment with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of the employment relationship in compliance with legal requirements. If the data controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents shall be automatically deleted two months after notification of the decision of rejection, provided that no other legitimate interests of the data controller preclude deletion. Other legitimate interests in this sense include retaining evidence for use in proceedings under the German General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

DATA PROTECTION PROVISIONS FOR THE INTEGRATION AND APPLICATION OF EXTERNAL SERVICES

The data controller has integrated components from various external companies on excent‘s web pages.

FACEBOOK

Facebook is a social network. A social network is an Internet-based social meeting place, an online community that usually enables users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for exchanging opinions and experiences or enables the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Facebook enables users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friendship requests, among other things.

The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. if the data subject resides outside the US or Canada, the data controller processing personal data is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

On each visit to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and which has integrated a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in), the relevant Facebook component causes the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject to automatically download from Facebook a representation of the corresponding Facebook component. An overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=de_DE. As part of this technical process, Facebook receives information about the specific sub-page of our website visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is simultaneously logged in to Facebook, Facebook recognises which specific sub-page of our website they visited for each visit to our website and during the entire duration of the respective visit to our website. This information is collected through the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the appropriate Facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the “Like” button, or they make a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and stores this personal data.

Facebook receives information via the Facebook component that the data subject has visited our website whenever they are logged in to Facebook at the same time as accessing our website; this happens regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to Facebook, they can prevent it from being transmitted by logging out of their Facebook account before accessing our web page.

The data policy published by Facebook, which is available at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains what setting options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addition, various applications are available that make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook. Such applications can be used by the data subject to suppress the transfer of data to Facebook.

GOOGLE ADSENSE

Google AdSense is an online service that enables the placement of advertising on third party sites. Google AdSense is based on an algorithm that selects the ads displayed on third party sites according to the content of the respective third-party site. Google AdSense allows interest-based targeting of the Internet user, which is implemented by generating individual user profiles.

The operating company of Google’s AdSense component is Alphabet Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.

The purpose of the Google AdSense component is to include ads on our site. Google AdSense places a cookie on the information technology system of the person in question. Cookies have already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Alphabet Inc. is able to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the responsible person and on which a Google AdSense component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Google AdSense component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Alphabet Inc. obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Alphabet Inc. uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission statements.

The data subject can prevent cookies being set by our website at any time, as already described above, by using an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and therefore permanently object to cookies being set. Setting the Internet browser used in this way would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Alphabet Inc. can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Google AdSense also uses so called web beacons. A web beacon is a miniature graphic embedded in web pages to enable log file recording and analysis, allowing statistical evaluation. The embedded pixel-code enables Alphabet Inc. to recognise whether and when an Internet page was opened by a data subject and which links were clicked on by the data subject. Web beacons are used, among other things, to evaluate the visitor flow of an Internet page.

Google AdSense transfers personal data and information, including the IP address, to Alphabet Inc. in the United States of America in order to collect and bill the advertisements displayed. This personal data is stored and processed in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.

Google AdSense is further explained at the following link,  https://www.google.com/intl/en/adsense/start/.

GOOGLE ANALYTICS

Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is surveying, collecting and analysing data about the behaviour of visitors to web pages. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data on the website from which a data subject has accessed a website (“referrer”), which sub-pages of the website have been accessed or how often and for how long a sub-page has been viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and for cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse visitor traffic on our web page. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our web pages, to compile online reports for us showing the activities on our web pages, and to provide other services related to the use of our web pages.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the data subject’s information technology system. Cookies have already been explained above. The placement of this cookie enables Google to analyse the use of our web pages. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google receives information about personal data, such as the data subject’s IP address, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently to facilitate settlement of commissions.

Cookies are used to store personal information, such as the time of access, the location from which access came and the frequency of visits to our web pages by the data subject. Each time you visit our web pages, your personal information, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.

The data subject can prevent cookies being set by our website at any time, as already described above, by using an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and therefore permanently object to cookies being set. Setting the Internet browser used in this way would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.

The data subject also has the option of objecting to and preventing the collection of the data generated by Google Analytics for the use of one of our web pages and the processing of this data by Google. To do this, the data subject must download and install a browser add-on from the link, https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information regarding visits to web pages may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered a contradiction by Google. If the data subject’s information technology system is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later time, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on to disable Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the data subject or another person within their control, it is possible to reinstall or reactivate the browser add-on.

GOOGLE MAPS

This website uses Google Maps to display interactive maps and create travel directions. Google Maps is a map service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, California 94043, USA. By using Google Maps, information relating to the use of this website, including your IP address and the (start) address entered within the scope of the route planner function may be transmitted to Google in the USA. If you access one of our pages that contains Google Maps, your browser will create a direct connection to the Google servers. The map content will be directly transmitted to your browser and integrated by the latter into the website. Therefore, the volume of data thus collected by Google is beyond our control.

GOOGLE REMARKETING

Google Remarketing is a feature of Google AdWords which enables a business to show advertisements to internet users who have previously visited our web pages. The integration of Google Remarketing allows a company to create user-friendly advertising and to show the internet user interest-related ads.

The services of Google Remarketing are operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of Google Remarketing is to show interest-based advertising. Google Remarketing allows us to display ads through the Google Network or to view them on other web pages tailored to the individual needs and interests of Internet users.

Google Remarketing places a cookie on the data subject’s information technology system. Cookies have already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google will be able to recognise the visitor to our web pages, if they subsequently access web pages which are also members of the Google ad network. With every visit to a web page on which Google Remarketing’s service has been integrated, the data subject’s Internet browser automatically identifies itself at Google. As part of this technical process, Google receives knowledge about personal data, such as the IP address or the user’s surfing behaviour, which Google uses, among other things, to display interest-relevant advertising.

The cookie stores personal information, such as the web pages visited by the data subject. With each visit to our web pages, personal information, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, will be transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.

The data subject can prevent cookies being set by our website at any time, as already described above, by using an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and therefore permanently object to cookies being set. Setting the Internet browser used in this way would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.

The data subject may also opt to object to interest-related advertising by Google. To do this, the data subject must go to the link   www.google.de/settings/ads from any Internet browser they are using and make the settings they want there.

Additional information and Google’s privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

GOOGLE+

Google+ is a social network. A social network is an Internet-based social meeting place, an online community that usually enables users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for exchanging opinions and experiences or enables the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Google+ enables users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friendship requests, among other things.

The operating company for the services of Google+ is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google+ button has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Google+ button to download a representation of the corresponding Google+ button from Google. As part of this technical process, Google receives information about the specific sub-page of our web pages visited by the data subject. More detailed information about Google+ is available at https://developers.google.com/+/.

If the data subject is logged in to Google+ at the same time, Google recognises on each visit to our web pages by the data subject and during the entire duration of the respective stay on our web pages, which specific sub-page of our web pages the data subject has visited. This information is collected through the Google+ button and assigned by Google to the relevant Google+ account of the data subject.

If the data subject clicks one of the Google+ buttons integrated on our web pages and thereby makes a Google+1 recommendation, Google assigns this information to their personal Google+ user account and stores this personal data. Google stores the Google+1 recommendation of the data subject and makes it publicly available in accordance with the conditions accepted by the data subject. A Google+1 recommendation made by the data subject on one of our web pages will subsequently be stored and processed together with other personal data, such as the name of the Google+1 account used by the data subject and the photo stored in this account in other Google services, such as the search engine results of the Google search engine, the Google account of the data subject or in other places, such as on web pages or in connection with advertisements. Google is also able to link the visit to a web page with other personal data stored on Google. Google also records this personal information for the purpose of improving or streamlining Google’s various services.

The Google+ button will always inform Google that the data subject has visited one of our web pages if they are logged in to Google+ at the same time as accessing our web page; this happens regardless of whether the data subject clicks the Google+ button or not.

If the data subject does not want personal data to be transmitted to Google, they can prevent such transmission by logging out of their Google+ account before accessing our web page.

Additional information and Google’s privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/. Additional information from Google regarding the Google +1 button can be found at https://developers.google.com/+/web/buttons-policy.

GOOGLE ADWORDS

Google AdWords is an internet advertising service that allows advertisers to run ads in both Google’s search engine results as well as the Google Network. Google AdWords allows advertisers to pre-define certain keywords by which ads in Google’s search engine results are only displayed when users use the search engine to retrieve a keyword-relevant search result. On the Google Network, ads are distributed to thematically relevant websites using an automatic algorithm and using the previously defined keywords.

The services of Google AdWords are operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of Google AdWords is to advertise our web pages by displaying interest-relevant advertising on the web pages of third parties and in the search engine results of the Google search engine and by displaying third-party advertising on our web page.

If the data subject arrives on our web page via a Google advert, a so-called conversion cookie will be deposited on the information technology system of the person in question by Google. Cookies have already been explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and is not used to identify the data subject. Unless expired, the conversion cookie is used to trace whether certain sub-pages, such as the shopping cart of an online shop system, were accessed on our web pages. The conversion cookie enables both us and Google to track whether any person who accessed one of our web pages through an AdWords ad has generated revenue, i.e. has completed or cancelled a purchase of goods.

The data and information collected through using the conversion cookie is used by Google to provide visitor statistics for our web pages. We use these visit statistics to determine the total number of users who have been referred to us via AdWords ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective AdWords ad and to optimise our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could identify the data subject.

The conversion cookie stores personally identifiable information, such as the web pages visited by the person in question. With each visit to our web pages, personal information, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, will be transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.

The data subject can prevent cookies being set by our website at any time, as already described above, by using an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and therefore permanently object to cookies being set. Setting the Internet browser used in this way would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programmes.

The data subject may also opt to object to interest-related advertising by Google. To do this, the data subject must go to the link   www.google.de/settings/ads from any Internet browser they are using and make the settings they want there.

Pinterest’s operating company is Pinterest Inc., 808 Brannan St., San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.

For each visit to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Pinterest component (Pinterest plug-in) has been integrated, the Pinterest component in question causes the Internet browser on the data subject’s information technology system to download a representation of the corresponding Pinterest component from Pinterest. More information about Pinterest is available at https://pinterest.com/. As part of this technical process, Pinterest receives information about the specific sub-page of our web pages visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is simultaneously logged in to Pinterest, Pinterest recognises which specific sub-page of our website they visited for each visit to our website and during the entire duration of the respective visit to our website.

SLIDESHARE

LinkedIn SlideShare is a file hosting service that allows sharing and archiving presentations and other documents, such as PDFs, videos, and webinars. The file hosting service allows users to upload media content in all popular formats, with the documents either publicly available or privately tagged.

The SlideShare operating company is the LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Privacy matters outside the USA are the responsibility of LinkedIn Ireland, Privacy Policy Issues, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland.

LinkedIn SlideShare provides so-called embed codes for the media content stored there (presentations, PDF files, videos, photos, etc.). Embed codes are program codes that are embedded in web pages with the aim of displaying external content on their own web page. Embed codes make it possible to play content on its one’s own web page without storing it on one’s own server and thereby possibly violating the copying right of the respective author of the content. Another advantage of using an embed code is that the respective operator of a web page does not use their own server’s storage capacity. An embed code can be integrated anywhere on another web page, so that external content can also be inserted within one’s own text. The purpose of using LinkedIn SlideShare is to spare use of our server and prevent copyright infringement while using third-party content.

Each time you visit a web page of ours that is equipped with a SlideShare component (embedded code), this component causes the browser you are using to download embedded data from SlideShare. As part of this technical process, LinkedIn receives information about the specific sub-page of our website which the data subject has visited.

If the data subject is simultaneously logged in to SlideShare, SlideShare recognises which specific sub-page of our website they visited for each visit to our website and during the entire duration of the respective visit to our website. This information is collected via SlideShare and assigned by LinkedIn to the data subject’s relevant SlideShare account.

LinkedIn always receives information from the SlideShare component that the data subject has visited our web pages if the data subject is simultaneously logged in to SlideShare at the time of accessing our web page; this happens regardless of whether or not the data subject clicks on the embedded media data. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to LinkedIn, they can prevent it from being transmitted by logging out of their SlideShare account before accessing our web pages.

LinkedIn also uses partners such as Quantcast, Google Analytics, BlueKai, DoubleClick, Nielsen, Comscore, Eloqua and Lotame who can set cookies. Those cookies can be rejected at https://www.linkedin.com/legal/cookie-policy. LinkedIn’s current privacy policy is available at https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy.

DATA PROCESSING SUBCONTRACTORS OF EXCENT

excent is currently working with the following data processing subcontractors:

  • cyon GmbH, hosting our website
  • Abacus Resarch AG, data processing
  • Intus AG, performance recording system
  • DIAG Dienstleistungen AG, IT and data processing
  • Auriga Informatik AG, IT and data processing

LEGAL BASIS OF THE PROCESSING

Art 6 I (a) GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a particular processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a contract of which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, in processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, processing shall be based on Art. 6 I (b) GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, for example to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I (c) GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured at our company and their name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, a hospital or other third parties. The processing would then be based on Art. 6 I (d) GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I (f) GDPR. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not take priority. We are allowed to carry out such processing procedures because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, they took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the data controller (recital 47 (2), GDPR).

LEGITIMATE INTERESTS IN PROCESSING PURSUED BY THE DATA CONTROLLER OR BY A THIRD PARTY

Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business operations for the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

DURATION FOR WHICH THE PERSONAL DATA WILL BE STORED

The criterion used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted if it is no longer required to fulfil the contract or for initiating a contract.

PROVISION OF PERSONAL DATA AS A STATUTORY OR CONTRACTUAL REQUIREMENT; ITS NECESSITY FOR ENTERING INTO A CONTRACT; OBLIGATION OF THE DATA SUBJECT TO PROVIDE THE PERSONAL DATA; POSSIBLE CONSEQUENCES OF FAILURE TO PROVIDE SUCH DATA

We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). In order for a contract to be concluded, it may sometimes be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data that we will then have to process. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company enters into a contract with them. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Prior to the provision of personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contractually or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data, and about what consequences failure to provide the personal data would have.

EXISTENCE OF AUTOMATED DECISION-MAKING

excent does not engage in automatic decision-making.

UPDATES AND AMENDMENTS TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY

Should any part of this contract be ineffective, this shall not affect the validity of the overall contract. It may be necessary to change this privacy policy as a result of further development of our website and services, or due to changes in statutory or regulatory requirements. The current privacy policy can be accessed and printed out at any time on a website linked from http://www.excent.ch.

As part of this technical process, Google receives information as to which specific sub-page of our website the data subject visits.
