We collect Personal Data indirectly:
We have implemented technical and organizational measures in an attempt to safeguard the Personal Data in our custody and control. While we always make a conscious effort to protect our systems, operations, sites, and information against unauthorized access, use, modification, and disclosure, due to the inherent nature of the Internet as an open global communications vehicle and other risk factors, we cannot guarantee that information, during transfer or storage, will be absolutely safe from interception.
We may, where necessary and according to the relevant legal basis, share your Personal Data with any number of the following categories of third parties:
We do an appropriate level of due diligence on third party contractors and assure contractually that sub-contractors are processing Personal Data in an appropriate manner and in accordance to our legal and regulatory obligations. In addition, we may use external data controllers where it is necessary in order to deliver the Services (e.g., without limitation: lawyers, accountants, or other third-party experts).
In the course of doing so, we will adhere to our legal and regulatory obligations regarding Personal Data, including, without limitation, establishing and implementing appropriate safeguards.
We may transfer Personal Data to locations outside of the jurisdiction in which we provide our services to you. We may process your data within Switzerland and the EU/EEA as well as the United States. For example, we currently collaborate with IT service providers who are headquartered in the United States and who may process Personal Data such as for time tracking/billing purposes.
If and to the extent your Personal Data is transferred to and/or stored at a destination outside of Switzerland/EU/EEA, we will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely. To the extent that these countries are outside the EEA and the EU has not adopted an adequacy decision for these countries, we have made appropriate arrangements to ensure an adequate level of data protection for any data transfers. These include, for example, the EU’s standard contractual clauses. In these cases, however, it is possible and there is a risk that authorities in the respective third country (e.g., intelligence services) may gain access to the transferred data and that the enforcement of your data subject rights cannot be guaranteed. When obtaining your consent via the consent banner, you will also be informed about this.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet cannot be completely secure. While we do our best to protect your Personal Data, we cannot guarantee the security of data that is being transmitted.
In principle, we store your Personal Data only as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes they were collected for. Thereafter, we delete the data immediately, unless we need to keep the data until the expiry of statutory retention obligations.

We use “Teams” to conduct online meetings. Teams is a software from Microsoft Ireland Operations Limited, South County Business Park, Leopardstown, Dublin 18, Ireland (“Microsoft”). The legal basis for the processing of data to conduct meetings via Teams is our legitimate interest in the effective and simple conduct of online meetings, discussion rounds and presentations. Also, we conduct this data processing on a contractual basis insofar as the meetings are held within the framework of existing contractual relationships with you. We are not responsible for any further data processing on the Teams product website, where the desktop software can be downloaded and the web app can be used.
During a meeting, participant details (e.g. display name, first name, last name, phone), metadata (e.g. meeting topic and description, IP address, time of participant’s last activity on Teams) chat or channel massages, microphone and video recording data and phone use may be processed under certain circumstances. You can deactivate the transmission via microphone and camera at any time via the corresponding settings. We only record meetings or log text data with your consent and prior notification. Microsoft stores and uses the metadata to enable us to analyse and report on the use of Teams.
Microsoft may become aware of the above data as part of its contract with us. You can find more information in Microsoft’s data protection policy under https://privacy.microsoft.com/de-de/privacystatement.
