The following information explains how we process your personal data (your name, e-mail address, etc.) in connection with the use of our website.
DALCO AG (Station-Ost 7, 6023 Rothenburg) is responsible for the data processing described.
If you have any data protection concerns, you can send them to us at the following contact address.
- Data processing purposes and legal bases
Personal data is always processed in compliance with the Swiss Cantonal Data Protection Act (KDSG) applicable to DALCO AG and, if applicable, the Swiss Federal Data Protection Act (DSG). In addition, DALCO AG observes the European Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), which may be applicable.
Insofar as you have given us consent to process your personal data for specific purposes (e.g. receipt of a quotation), we process your personal data within the scope of and based on this consent, insofar as we have no other legal basis and we require such a basis. Consent given can be revoked at any time, but this has no effect on data processing that has already taken place.
In addition, we process personal data from you, to the extent permitted and deemed appropriate, for the following purposes in which we have a corresponding legitimate interest.
- Offer and further develop our offers, services, websites and apps on which we are present;
- Communication with third parties and processing of their requests (e.g. applications, offers);
- Assertion of legal claims and defense in connection with legal disputes and official proceedings;
- Prevention and investigation of criminal offenses and other misconduct (e.g., conducting internal investigations, data analysis to combat fraud);
- Ensuring our operations, especially IT and our website
- General data and information when visiting the website
The protection of your data is of great concern to us. All personal data collected on our website will only be processed if this is necessary to ensure the functionality, content or products offered on our website.
Access data (log files)
Every time you visit our website, data (so-called server log files) of your visit are automatically stored (“access data”). This data includes in particular:
- Name and URL of the accessed website
- Date and time of the request
- Browser type and version
- Operating system
- Referrer URL (i.e. Internet page through which you reached our website)
The access data is processed exclusively for the purposes of the functionality, security and optimization of our website. Deletion takes place as soon as the storage of the access data is no longer necessary for achieving the purpose of collection.
By configuring your browser accordingly, you can prevent the installation of cookies at any time or have a warning displayed before accepting a cookie and thus determine for yourself whether you want to allow cookies or not. Cookies that have already been stored can be deleted at any time. The following pages contain instructions on how to manage cookies, depending on the browser:
- Microsof Edge
- Mozilla Firefox
- Google Chrome Desktop
- Google Chrome Mobile
- Apple Safari Desktop
- Apple Safari Mobile
In principle, our website can also be used without accepting cookies, however, individual features of our website can then only be used to a limited extent or not at all. Before you visit our website, we ask you for your consent, so that the setting of cookies is justified by your consent. Those cookies that we absolutely need to provide the website, we use on the basis of our legitimate interest.
- Data protection during applications and the application process
The person responsible for processing collects and processes the personal data of applicants (e.g. contact details, CV, qualifications, letter of motivation) for the purpose of handling the application process.
- Contact by form or e-mail
If you contact us via e-mail or a form, the data will be transmitted to the recipient designated internally for further processing and stored. We use the information you provide voluntarily (e.g. name, e-mail address, telephone number, question) solely for the purpose of processing your inquiry and involve the relevant internal departments and persons. Data will only be passed on to third parties on the basis of a legal authorization or after obtaining your explicit consent.
We would like to point out that communication by e-mail or in some cases also by contact form does not take place via a secure or encrypted data connection. This means that your data can be lost during transmission or can be viewed by unauthorized persons. Contacting us via form or e-mail is therefore at your own risk, in this context we assume no responsibility and reject any liability claims asserted in this regard.
By contacting us via form or e-mail, you explicitly agree to the described data processing.
- Third-party tools and plug-ins
By visiting our website, you also agree to the data processing described below.
- Duration of storage
We process and store your personal data for as long as it is necessary for the fulfillment of our contractual and legal obligations or otherwise the purposes pursued with the processing, as well as beyond that in accordance with the statutory retention and documentation obligations. In this context, it is possible that personal data will be retained for the time during which claims can be asserted against our company and insofar as we are otherwise legally obligated to do so or legitimate interests require this (e.g. evidentiary and documentation purposes). As soon as your personal data is no longer required for the above-mentioned purposes, it will be deleted or anonymized as a matter of principle and to the extent possible.
- Data transfer and data transmission abroad
We only pass on your personal data to third parties in order to use technical or organizational services that we require for the fulfillment of the aforementioned purposes or our other business activities.
Any further transfer of your personal data will only take place if you have given your express consent or if the data has been anonymized in such a way that it is no longer possible to identify you personally.
If data is transferred to a country without an adequate level of data protection, we ensure an adequate level of data protection as provided for by law by using appropriate contracts (namely on the basis of the so-called standard contractual clauses) or so-called Binding Corporate Rules or rely on the legal exceptions of consent, contract performance, the establishment, exercise or enforcement of legal claims or overriding public interests.
- Rights of the website users
You have the right to request information about the processing of your personal data free of charge at any time; to do so, please contact the office named in the imprint. Other rights, such as the right to data deletion, data correction, restriction of data processing, right to data transmission, right to revoke any consent given and the right to object to the processing of your personal data exist within the scope prescribed by law. Please note, however, that we reserve the right to assert the restrictions provided for by law, for example if we are obliged to retain or process certain data, have an overriding interest in doing so or require it for the assertion of claims.
The exercise of such rights usually requires that you clearly prove your identity (e.g. by means of a copy of your ID card).
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of our website. Therefore, users of our website have no right to object in this regard.
