2. General information on data processing

2.1 We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this privacy policy, in particular in accordance with the Swiss Federal Data Protection Act (FADP) and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (2016/679) in force since April 27th, 2016 (GDPR).

As a rule, the use of our website is possible without providing personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special services of our enterprise via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and if there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (for example, when communicating by email), despite the high standards of security we have created, can have security gaps.

Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

As the (natural) person concerned, it is in your personal interest to secure the system(s) you use (PC, laptop, etc.) against unauthorized access by third parties, to provide it with sufficient password protection and not to pass on the password to third parties, as well as to install and also update virus protection (Internet security) that has been identified in the market.

3. Collection of general data and information

The website of the Clinical Translations collects a series of general data and information every time a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information is stored in the server log files.

The following data may be collected:

  1. the browser types and versions used,
  2. the operating system used by the accessing system,
  3. the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer),
  4. the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website,
  5. the date and time of access to the website,
  6. an Internet protocol address (IP address),
  7. the Internet service provider of the accessing system and
  8. other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using these general data and information, Clinical Translations does not draw any conclusions about the data subject.

Rather, this information is needed:

  1. to deliver the contents of our website correctly,
  2. to optimize the contents of our website and the advertising for these,
  3. to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and
  4. to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack.

Therefore, the Clinical Translations analyzes anonymously collected data and information on one hand for statistical purposes and on the other hand for the purpose of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and ultimately ensuring an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.

4. Definitions

The data protection declaration of Clinical Translations is based on the terms used by the European Data Protection Supervisor when adopting the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we explain the terms used. You can find these terms at the link below: “Terms and Conditions”.

5. Cookies

The Internet pages, including those of Clinical Translations, sometimes use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called session cookies. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.

6. Server log files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us.

These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request

This data cannot be assigned to specific persons. This data is not merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of specific indications of unlawful use.

7. Data protection during applications and the application process

The data controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application procedure. The processing may also be carried out electronically. This is in particular the case when an applicant submits relevant application documents to the controller by electronic means, for example by e-mail with PDF files or other file types as attachments via a web form located on the website.

If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored at Clinical Translations for the purpose of processing the employment relationship, in compliance with the statutory provisions and securing access for unauthorized employees and third parties.

If the data controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant as the data subject, the application documents will be deleted automatically and without further notification to the applicant two months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the data controller conflict with such deletion. Other legitimate interests in this sense are, for example, obligations to provide evidence in proceedings under the (General) Equal Treatment Act.

8. Right to information, deletion, blocking

You have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient, the purpose of the data processing as well as the right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data. For this purpose as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint and inform yourself sufficiently about the individual rights.
