2. Processing of personal data

2.1 Terms

Personal data is all information that relates to a specific or identifiable person. A data subject is a person about whom personal data is processed. Processing includes any handling of personal data, regardless of the means and procedures used, in particular the storage, disclosure, procurement, collection, deletion, storage, modification, destruction and use of personal data.

The European Economic Area (EEA) comprises the European Union (EU) as well as the Principality of Liechtenstein, Iceland and Norway. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) describes the processing of personal data as processing of personal data.

2.2 Legal Bases

We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law, in particular the Federal Data Protection Act (DSG) and the Ordinance on the Federal Data Protection Act (VDSG).

If and to the extent that the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is applicable, we process personal data in accordance with at least one of the following legal bases:

2.3 Nature, Scope and Purpose

We process the personal data that is necessary to be able to provide our offer permanently, user-friendly, securely and reliably. Such personal data can fall into the categories of inventory and contact data, browser and device data, content data, meta or marginal data and usage data, location data, sales, contract and payment data.

We process personal data for the period that is required for the respective purpose or purposes or by law. Personal data that no longer needs to be processed will be made anonymous or deleted. Persons whose data we process have a fundamental right to erasure.

In principle, we only process personal data with the consent of the person concerned, unless the processing is permissible for other legal reasons, for example to fulfill a contract with the person concerned and for corresponding pre-contractual measures to protect our overriding legitimate interests, because the processing is apparent from the circumstances or after prior information.

In this context, we process in particular information that a person concerned voluntarily and himself transmits to us when contacting us – for example by post, e-mail, contact form, social media or telephone – or when registering for a user account. We can store such information, for example, in an address book or with comparable tools. If you transmit personal data to us via third parties, you are obliged to ensure data protection against such third parties and to ensure the accuracy of such personal data.

We also process personal data that we receive from third parties, procure from publicly accessible sources or collect when providing our offer, if and to the extent that such processing is permitted for legal reasons.

2.4 Processing of personal data by third parties, also abroad

We can have personal data processed by commissioned third parties or process it together with third parties and with the help of third parties or transmit it to third parties. Such third parties are in particular providers whose services we use. We also guarantee appropriate data protection for such third parties.

Such third parties are may be located in Switzerland, in the European Economic Area (EEA) or other countries and territories on earth as well as elsewhere in the universe, provided that their data protection law is in the opinion of the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) and – insofar as and to the extent that the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is applicable – in accordance with the assessment the European Commission adequate data protection is guaranteed, or if adequate data protection is guaranteed for other reasons, such as by a corresponding contractual agreement, in particular on the basis of standard contractual clauses, or by a corresponding certification. In exceptional cases, such a third party may be located in a country without adequate data protection, provided that the data protection requirements, such as the express consent of the person concerned, are met.

3. Rights of data subjects

Affected persons whose personal data we process have the rights under Swiss data protection law. This includes the right to information as well as the right to correction, deletion or blocking of the processed personal data.

Affected persons whose personal data we process can – if and to the extent that the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is applicable – receive confirmation free of charge as to whether we are processing their personal data and, if so, request information about the processing of their personal data, restrict the processing of their personal data exercise their right to data transferability and have their personal data corrected, deleted (“right to be forgotten”), blocked or completed.

Affected persons whose personal data we process can – if and to the extent that the GDPR is applicable – revoke a given consent at any time with effect for the future and object to the processing of their personal data at any time.

To request the deletion of your personal data, send an request via to coaching(at)

Affected persons whose personal data we process have a right of appeal to a competent supervisory authority. The supervisory authority for data protection in Switzerland is the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC).

4. Data Security

We take appropriate and reasonable technical and organizational measures to ensure data protection and, in particular, data security. However, despite such measures, the processing of personal data on the Internet can always have security gaps. We can therefore not guarantee absolute data security.

Our online offer is accessed using transport encryption (SSL / TLS, in particular with the Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure, abbreviated as HTTPS). Most browsers mark transport encryption with a padlock in the address bar.

Access to our online offering is subject – like basically any internet use – to mass surveillance without cause or suspicion, as well as other surveillance by security authorities in Switzerland, the European Union (EU), the United States of America (USA) and others states. We have no direct influence on the corresponding processing of personal data by secret services, police stations and other security authorities.
