“Personal data” is information that relates to individuals or which we can otherwise connect to individuals. Personal data here means personal data belonging to you as a natural person or to your or your affiliates’ employees, customers, contractors, target groups, agencies, job applicants, website visitors and consumers.
The personal data collected are varied. Within the parameters here described, we particularly collect the following personal data either automatically or manually:
Data about the individual:
Customer activity data:
We have technical and organisational security measures to keep personal data secure and to protect personal data from unauthorised or unlawful processing and/or from accidental loss, amendment, disclosure or unauthorised access.
You should always be aware, however, that there are certain security risks inherent in the sending of information via the internet and other electronic media and that we are unable to accept any guarantee of the security of information sent in this way or otherwise processed.
If you disclose personal information via a public network or a network provided by third parties, you should be aware that your data could be lost or third parties could potentially access this information and could, as a result, collect and use the data without your consent.
We retain personal data only for as long as we consider necessary or reasonable in order to comply with applicable laws or for as long as they are required for the purposes for which they were obtained. At the same time, personal data may be retained for as long as claims may be brought against our company (i.e. in particular during the statutory limitation period) and to the extent we are otherwise legally required to do so or legitimate business interests require this (e.g. for evidence and documentation purposes). As soon as your personal data are no longer needed for the purposes stated above, they are as a matter of principle, and as far as possible, erased or anonymised. For operating data (e.g. system protocols, logs), shorter retention periods of twelve months or less generally apply.
Within the context of applicable law, data subjects have the right to know whether and potentially what personal data we process about them, and can request a copy.
Within the context of applicable law, data subjects further have the right to correct their personal data, add to them, object to the processing of their personal data or (in certain circumstances) request the erasure of their personal data. Data subjects may also resist the processing of certain personal data and can ask for the processing of the data to be restricted. It should be noted that the restriction or erasure of personal data may result in our being unable to fulfil orders or in our no longer being able to send communications or invitations. You also have the right to receive personal data on a computer-readable data carrier and to send these to a third party.
The exercise of such rights generally requires you to provide clear evidence of your identity (e.g. through a copy of ID where your identity is otherwise unclear or cannot be verified). To enforce your rights please contact us via the address given in Clause 5.
Data subjects are entitled to enforce their privacy rights at any time. Should data subjects not agree to the processing of data by us, they may report this at any time to the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) and/or the responsible supervisory authority in the EU.
Should data subjects wish to enforce their rights in relation to their personal data or have concerns relating to the processing of personal data or have other questions in connection with data protection, you may contact us as follows:

We reserve the right to correspond with you electronically (particularly by e-mail) in this context. We will respond to or process questions or concerns as soon as possible following receipt.
Please note that we are unable to provide information about personal data processed if mandatory law prohibits us from doing so.
The holder of the data collection is Wiederkehr Antosch Architekten AG.
We collect personal data that are sent to us in the following circumstances in particular:
In certain circumstances, we supplement personal data using information we have been able to trace from publicly available sources (such as the internet, for example).
We collect personal data if we have any contact with you or with data subjects. The situations are varied.
For example, we collect personal data in the following circumstances:
We process personal data for various purposes, which can be summarised in different groups. Specifically, we can process personal data wholly or partially for one or more of the following purposes:
Processing in connection with our services
Processing in connection with customer communications
Processing in connection with particular activities and events
Processing in connection with direct marketing
Processing in connection with job applications
In the processing of personal data we rely primarily on the accurate performance of the service agreement.
We further rely on our legitimate interests to remain in contact with you as a business partner, carry out pre-contractual measures, perform contracts as agreed, manage the relationship and communicate with you in order to keep you informed of Wiederkehr Antosch Architekten AG’s activities and events.
We assume that our legitimate interests are consistent with the regulation and rights of data subjects.
In case of a job application, we rely on your consent as the legal basis for processing your personal data, though you remain able to withdraw such consent at any time.
Otherwise, we process personal data on the basis of the data subject’s consent or on a legal basis.
Wiederkehr Antosch Architekten AG is a Swiss enterprise and all your personal data are, as a rule, processed in Switzerland and stored only on servers in Switzerland.
We are able to share personal data with our affiliates or third parties to benefit from the technical, organisational or other services we need to fulfil the purposes specified or carry out our other business activities. These include the following entities in particular:
Some of these recipients are located in Switzerland but they could be in any country. The data can in particular be sent to those countries where our clients, their affiliates, counterparties or business partners or the service providers or experts involved are located, or where our purchasers and their group companies have been involved in proceedings. If we send data to a country without reasonable legal data protection, we ensure an appropriate level of protection, as envisaged by law, by using contracts to that effect (specifically on the basis of the European Commission’s “standard contractual clauses”), or “binding corporate rules”, or we rely on the legal exemptions of consent, contractual performance, the identification, exercise or enforcement of legal rights, overwhelming public interest, published personal data, or because this is necessary for the protection of the data subjects’ integrity.
Our service providers have an obligation to process the personal data solely on our behalf and according to our instructions. We also require our service providers to comply with technical and organisational measures to ensure personal data are protected.
Should our business be sold to a different enterprise or undergo restructuring, personal data will be shared in order to enable you to continue to use our services. We normally also share personal data with potential buyers if we are considering a partial or complete sale, or a partial or complete outsourcing of an area of our business. We make arrangements to ensure that potential buyers take care that personal data remains secure.
We may also pass on personal data if we deem this necessary for compliance with applicable laws and regulations, in case of court proceedings, at the request of the responsible courts or authorities, or based on other legal obligations or in order to protect and defend our rights or property.
What cookies do we use?
Most of the cookies we use are automatically erased from your computer or mobile device at the end of your browsing session (“session cookies”).
In addition, we also use temporary or permanent cookies. These remain stored on your computer or mobile device at the end of your browsing session. When you next visit our website, your input and preferred settings are then automatically restored. These temporary or permanent cookies remain stored on your computer or mobile device for between one month and ten years, depending on the type of cookie, and are automatically deactivated once the programmed period has elapsed. They serve to make our website more user-friendly, efficient and secure.
How can you prevent cookies being stored?
Most internet browsers accept cookies automatically. You can set your browser not to accept any cookies or always to ask you before a cookie is accepted from a website you have visited. You can erase cookies from your computer or mobile device at any time by using the corresponding browser function. Should you decide not to accept our cookies or the cookies of our partner enterprises, you may be unable to view certain information on our website or to use certain functions intended to improve your browsing experience.
Whenever you access our website, your internet browser sends us certain user data for technical reasons, which are stored in “log files”. This includes the following user data:
The analysis of the log files helps us further improve our website and make it more user-friendly, identify and remove errors more quickly, and manage server capacity. Using log files, we can, for example, identify what time our website is in greatest demand and can therefore make matching volumes of data available in order to guarantee you the best possible browsing experience.
In order to continually improve and optimise our website, we use “tracking technologies”. Web analysis tools provide us with statistics and graphs that give us information on the use of our website. This means data on the use of our website are sent to the server used for this purpose. Depending on who the provider of a web analysis tool is, such servers may be located abroad.
For the most frequently used web analysis tool, Google Analytics, the data are transferred together with abbreviated IP addresses which prevent individual devices from being identified. Google complies with the privacy requirements of the “Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield” framework and has been registered for the “Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield” with the US Department of Commerce (for information on the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield, see https://www.privacyshield.gov/Swiss-US-Privacy-Shield-FAQs).
The IP address sent by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data. Any transfer of such data by Google to third parties only occurs if legally required or as part of a data processing arrangement.
You can prevent the data generated by cookies relating to your use of our website (including your IP address) from being sent to or processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available via the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout).
For more information on Google Analytics and data privacy, see: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout or http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html.
Our website uses social plugins, e.g. from LinkedIn. The plugins are branded with the provider’s logo.
If you access a website containing one of those plugins, your browser creates a direct connection to the provider’s computers. The plugin’s content is sent from the source page directly to your browser and incorporated by it into the website. By placing the plugin, the provider receives the information that you have accessed our website. If you are simultaneously logged into the provider, the provider can link the visit to your profile. If you interact with the plugins (for example, by clicking on “Like” or leaving a comment), that information is sent directly from your browser to the provider and stored.
If you do not wish the provider to collect data about you via our website, you need to log out of the provider before visiting our website. Even when you are logged out, providers use social plugins to collect anonymised data and install cookies. Such data can be linked to your profile if you later log onto the provider.
Please see the provider’s privacy information concerning the purpose and scope of its data collection and further processing of your data, along with your rights and privacy settings in this regard:
