Responsible within the meaning of data protection laws, in particular the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is: Gradical GmbH
In cooperation with our hosting providers, we strive to protect the databases as well as possible from unauthorized access, loss, abuse or falsification” in English.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the internet (e.g. communication via email) can have security vulnerabilities. It is not possible to completely protect data from being accessed by third parties.
By using this website, you agree to the collection, processing, and use of data as described below. This website can be visited without registering in general. During this process, data such as the pages accessed or the names of the files 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 email address, is collected on a voluntary basis as far as possible. Data is not passed on to third parties without your consent.
Processing of personal data
Personal data refers to any information that relates to a specific or identifiable person. An affected person is a person about whom personal data is processed. Processing refers to any handling of personal data, regardless of the means and processes 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, if and to the extent that the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is applicable, we process personal data based on the following legal bases in connection with Art. 6 para. 1 DSGVO:
Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR) – The affected person has given their consent to the processing of their personal data for a specific purpose or multiple specific purposes.
Contract fulfillment and pre-contractual inquiries (Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR) – Processing is necessary for the performance of a contract of which the affected person is a party or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures taken at the request of the affected person.
Legal obligation (Art. 6 para. 1 (c) GDPR) – Processing is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which the responsible party is subject.
Protection of vital interests (Art. 6 para. 1 (d) GDPR) – Processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of the affected person or another natural person.
Legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR) – Processing is necessary for the protection of the legitimate interests of the responsible party or a third party, unless the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the affected person requiring the protection of personal data outweigh them.
Application process as a pre-contractual or contractual relationship (Art. 9 para. 2 (b) GDPR) – If special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 para. 1 are processed in the context of the application process, this will only take place if it is necessary for the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship. If special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 para. 1 DSGVO (e.g. health data, such as disability or ethnic origin) are requested from applicants, so that the responsible party or the affected person can exercise the rights arising from labor law and the law of social security and social protection and fulfill their corresponding obligations, their processing will only take place according to Art. 9 para. 2 lit. b DSGVO if it is necessary for the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship. 2 lit. b. DSGVO, in the case of the protection of vital interests of the applicants or other persons pursuant to Art. 9 para. 2 lit. Art. 9 para. 2 (c) GDPR or for the purpose of preventive medicine or occupational medicine, for the assessment of the employee’s ability to work, for medical diagnosis, the provision or treatment in the health or social sector, or for the administration of systems and services in the health or social sector according to Art. 9 para. 2 (h) GDPR. Art. 9 Abs. 2 lit. h. GDPR. In the case of a voluntary consent-based disclosure of special categories of data, their processing is based on Art. 9 para. 2 (a) GDPR. 2 lit. a. GDPR. We process personal data for the duration that is necessary for the respective purpose or purposes.
For longer-term retention obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we restrict processing accordingly.
Relevant legal bases
In accordance with Art. 32 GDPR, taking into account the state of the art, the implementation costs and the nature, scope, circumstances and purposes of processing as well as the risk of varying likelihood and severity for the rights and freedoms of natural persons, we implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure an appropriate level of protection in accordance with the risk.
The measures include in particular the securement of the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by controlling physical and electronic access to the data as well as the respective access, input, transfer, availability and separation of the data. In addition, we have established procedures to ensure the exercise of data subjects’ rights, the deletion of data and responses to data breaches. Furthermore, we consider the protection of personal data already during the development or selection of hardware, software and procedures, in accordance with the principle of data protection by design and by default.
Transmission of personal data
In the course of processing personal data, it may be necessary to transmit or disclose the data to other locations, companies, legally independent units, or individuals. Recipients of this data may include service providers or providers of services and content that are embedded in a website. In such cases, we comply with legal requirements and conclude appropriate contracts or agreements that protect your data with the recipients of your data.
Data processing in third countries
If we process data in a third country (i.e., outside the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA)) or if the processing takes place as part of the use of third-party services or the disclosure or transmission of data to other individuals, entities, or companies, this is only done in compliance with legal requirements. Subject to explicit consent or transmission required by contract or law, we only process data in third countries that have an recognized level of data protection, contractual obligations through so-called Standard Contractual Clauses of the EU Commission, the presence of certifications, or binding internal data protection regulations (Articles 44 to 49 GDPR, information page of the EU Commission. https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection_de).
The following types and functions of cookies are distinguished: Temporary cookies (also called session or session cookies): Temporary cookies are deleted at the latest when a user leaves an online service and closes their browser.
This website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you have reached our website through a Google-displayed ad, Google Ads will set a cookie on your computer. The cookie for conversion tracking is set when a user clicks on an ad displayed by Google. These cookies expire after 30 days and do not personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page. Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be tracked via the websites of Ads customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Ads customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers receive information about the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive information that allows users to be personally identified.
If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can reject the setting of the required cookie – for example, through the browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies or sets your browser to block cookies from the domain “googleleadservices.com”. Please note that you must not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not wish to record measurement data. If you have deleted all your cookies in the browser, you must set the respective opt-out cookie again.
Use of Google Remarketing
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited. If the data controller on this website is located outside the European Economic Area or Switzerland, then the Google Analytics data processing is carried out by Google LLC. Google LLC and Google Ireland Limited are hereinafter referred to as “Google”. The statistics obtained enable us to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. This website also uses Google Analytics for a cross-device analysis of visitor flows, which is carried out via a user ID. If you have a Google user account, you can deactivate the cross-device analysis of your usage in the settings there under “My data”, “Personal data”. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code “_anonymizeIp();” to ensure anonymized collection of IP addresses. This means that IP addresses are processed in abbreviated form, which means that they cannot be linked to a specific person. If the data collected about you is personally identifiable, this is immediately excluded and the personal data is deleted immediately. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
Google Tag Manager
Google Tag Manager is a solution with which we can manage so-called website tags via an interface and thus, for example, integrate Google Analytics and other Google marketing services into our online offering. The Tag Manager itself, which implements the tags, does not process any personal data of the users. With regard to the processing of users’ personal data, please refer to the following information on Google services. Usage guidelines: https://www.google.com/intl/de/tagmanager/use-policy.html.
Note on data transfer to the USA
Among other things, tools from companies based in the USA are integrated on our website. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to the US servers of the respective companies. We would like to point out that the USA is not a safe third country in the sense of EU data protection law. US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as a data subject being able to take legal action against this. It can therefore not be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. intelligence services) process, evaluate and permanently store your data located on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.
