How We Process Data 

  • Using our Websites without registering

When you visit our Websites, we process usage data about your use of our Websites (the “Session Data”) such as how our Websites are navigated, how many visitors arrive at specific pages, the length and frequency of stays at our Websites, the language preferences selected by our visitors, the types of browsers and computer operating systems used by our visitors and Internet Protocol (“IP“) addresses from which our visitors connect to our site (meaning the address that identifies the device you use to connect to our site). We process Session Data to analyse the Internet traffic on our Websites and to improve the way our Websites function. 

  • Using our Websites with registration

Our Websites offer various services such as ebooks (free and fee-paying), online appointments, online questionnaires, etc. (the “Services”). To use the Services, you will have to register on one of the Websites. We will only process the information about you that you voluntarily share with us. Information you may share with us includes your name, e-mail address, mailing address, home or work telephone number (the “Personal Data”).

If you decide to register with us, we may process the Personal Data for the purpose of managing and providing the Services offered on our Website, preventing the misuse of our Services and for market research and marketing by telephone, text messaging (sms), picture messaging (mms) and e-mails on products, and services of Schladitz Consulting and to build individual and group profiles (profiling). 

How We Share Data

We may share any Session Data and Personal Data with third party service providers (the “Service Providers”) for obtaining professional, technical or organizational services that are functional to the managing of our Websites. The Service Providers will process the Session Data and Personal Data as data processors on behalf of us. We will share with the Service Providers only that Session Data and Personal Data that are necessary to the performance of their respective functions. The Service Providers will have to contractually agree to only process the Session Data and Personal Data shared with them for the processing purposes specified above. If any recipients of the Session Data and Personal Data are located in countries where data protection laws do not provide an equivalent level of protection to the laws in Switzerland or the European Economic Area, we will contractually ensure that Session Data and Personal Data is processed with an equivalent level of protection as to the laws in Switzerland or the European Economic Area.

Your Session Data and Personal Data may also be shared by us if we consider it necessary or appropriate to do so in order to comply with any applicable laws and regulations, in case of judicial proceedings, request by competent courts and authorities or other legal obligation, to protect or to defend our rights and property. 

How We Use Google Analytics

The Websites use “Google Analytics”, a software programme provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies and text files that are stored on your computer or mobile device to help analyse your use of the Websites. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the Websites (including your IP address) is sent to a Google server in the U.S. and stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the Websites, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other website activity and internet related services. In addition, Google may also transfer this information to third parties if required by law or if third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by changing the settings on your browser. However, in this case, you may not be able to use all features of the Websites. By using the Websites, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner described and for the aforementioned purpose.

How We Use Social Plugins and Links

Our Websites use social plugins (the “Plugins”) provided by social networks (e.g. facebook.com and youtube.com). The Plugins are identifiable by the logo or the respective social network. The Plugins enable you to set bookmarks on these pages and share the bookmarks with other users of social networks.

When you visit a page of our Websites that contain Plugins, your browser establishes a direct connection to the social network servers. The embedded Plugins provide the social network with the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our Websites. If you are logged into the social network, your visit can be assigned to your social network account. If you interact with the Plugins, for example by clicking the Facebook “Like-Button”, or entering a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to the social network and stored by it. Even if you are not logged into the social network, there is a possibility that the Plugins will transmit your IP-address to the social network.

For information on the purpose and scope of data processing by the social network, as well as your rights in this respect, and setting options for protecting your privacy, please visit the social network website’s privacy policy. We have no influence on the data gathered by the Plugins.

Our Websites further provide links to other sites. When you click on one of these links, you are leaving our Websites and visiting another internet site that we do not control and for which we cannot be responsible.

You should carefully review the privacy statements or policies on any other internet site that you visit or social network because those privacy statements or policies will apply and may be very different from our Policy.
