In this Policy, “Personal Data” means information which relates to an individual and which identifies that individual, either directly or indirectly (together with other information that is reasonably likely to come into Zühlke’s possession), such as your name, e-mail address or telephone number.
Collection of Personal Data
Generally, you can visit the Zühlke Website without providing any Personal Data about yourself. No Personal Data is collected automatically. However, for accessing some parts of our Website, such as downloading certain documents, or in connection with another specific purpose, we may need to collect Personal Data from you. Providing Personal Data to us in these events is voluntary and you will be explicitly requested to provide such Personal Data and informed about the intended use of such Personal Data. If you do not provide Personal Data to us, then you will not be able to benefit from the respective functionality offered by our Website, such as communication, downloading of documents or recruitment. The typical purposes for which your Personal Data is collected are described below, along with a brief description of how your Personal Data may be handled in each case.
Zühlke is a global organisation. Whilst we have distinct legal entities (e.g., country subsidiaries) in Switzerland and certain EU member countries, our internal processes and infrastructure are international in scope and nature and generally cross country borders. Accordingly, you should be aware that we may share your Personal Data inside Zühlke; such transfer will however be limited to Zühlke entities located in Switzerland and the EU.
Like many organisations, we use third-party suppliers to collect, use and otherwise process Personal Data on our behalf. Our practice is to require such third parties to handle Personal Data in accordance with Zühlke’s privacy and security policies.
Like many organisations, Zühlke may reorganise its business operations around the world from time to time, whether by buying new businesses or selling or merging existing businesses. This may involve us disclosing Personal Data to prospective or actual purchasers of parts of our business, or receiving personal data from potential sellers. It is our practice to seek appropriate confidentiality protection for Personal Data disclosed in these types of transactions.
Sensitive Personal Data
As a general rule, Zühlke does not collect “Sensitive Personal Data” through its Website. “Sensitive Personal Data” means Personal Data concerning racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade-union membership, or concerning health or sex life. By volunteering unsolicited sensitive Personal Data to us (e.g., by submitting your resume or a job application online), you expressly consent to your Personal Data being used as described in this Policy.
Data security and integrity
Zühlke uses various technological and procedural security measures in order to protect the Personal Data we collect, use or transfer from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction. However, you should be aware that, due to the open and unsecured character of the Internet, Zühlke cannot be responsible for the security of transmissions of the Personal Data over the Internet.
Your rights with respect to Personal Data
You may at any time request information as to what Personal Data Zühlke has stored with respect to you. You may further request that any Personal Data stored by Zühlke with respect to you which is erroneous is corrected. Finally, you may at any time request that Personal Data relating to you Zühlke has stored is deleted, provided that Zühlke is not mandated or entitled by law to keep and use such Personal Data for the purposes provided for by such law.
You may contact Zühlke by e-mail info[at]zuehlke.com or by telephone +41 44 733 6611 for the purpose of exercising the above rights. Please be aware that Zühlke will require you to provide identification to ascertain that you are authorized to receive or request to amend/delete the relevant Personal Data.
