2. Scope and Purpose of the Collection, Processing, and Use of Personal Data

The revDSG defines personal data as “data/information linked to identified or identifiable natural persons.” Online identifiers, such as IP addresses, are considered personal data unless they are specifically anonymized.

We collect, process, and use your personal data for the following purposes:

  • Optimization of the website (adapting the website to your needs)
  • Processing contact inquiries
  • Applications
  • Fulfillment of contractual obligations

2.1 Visiting the Website

When you visit our website, our servers temporarily store the following data in a log file, the so-called server log files:

  • IP address of the requesting computer
  • Date and time of access/retrieval
  • Name and URL of the accessed page
  • Access status/HTTP status code
  • Amount of data transferred in each case
  • Browser information

The basis for the temporary storage of your personal data and the log files is the legitimate interest. The legitimate interest exists in order to

  • Correctly display the content of our website,
  • Provide law enforcement authorities with the necessary information for prosecution in the event of an incident,
  • Improve our offerings and online presence,
  • Collect statistical data.


This data is stored together with other personal data of yours for statistical purposes.

2.2 Contact

You have the option to contact us via email on our website. In this case, the information you provide will be processed for the purpose of handling your inquiry and processing it. Voluntary provision of personal data facilitates the processing of your request and enables us to provide more precise information. The personal data you provide will not be merged with other data. The basis for processing your personal data is our legitimate interest in handling your request. If the contact is aimed at fulfilling a contract to which you are a party or implementing pre-contractual measures, this constitutes an additional basis for processing your personal data. You can object to this data processing at any time. Please send your objection to the following email address:
In such a case, your request will not be processed further.

2.4 (Online) Applications

 If you apply for a position with us, we process your personal data to review your application. During the application process, we process, besides your personal details, information on education, work experience, and skills, postal and contact addresses, and application-related documents such as cover letters, resumes, references, and certificates. You can, of course, provide additional information voluntarily. This data will be stored, evaluated, processed, or forwarded internally solely for purposes related to your application. They may also be processed for statistical purposes (e.g., reporting), but in this case, no conclusions can be drawn about individual persons. The processing may also occur electronically, especially if you submit your application documents via email or through our online application platform Dualoo. The provision of applicant data marked as mandatory (*) is required to assign your application and contact you regarding your application and to evaluate the success prospects of your application. Mandatory fields include:

  • Salutation*
  • First name*
  • Last name*
  • Address*
  • Country, postal code, and city*
  • Email address*
  • Mobile phone number*
  • Nationality*
  • Date of birth*

The basis for processing is our legitimate interest in processing your application. You can object to this data processing at any time. In this case, we will not further review your application and will return your documents or delete your electronically submitted documents. Your applicant data will be stored separately from other user data and will not be merged with them.

If we conclude an employment contract with you, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of handling the employment relationship in compliance with legal requirements. If the application process ends without employment, your application data will be stored for documentation purposes for three months and then deleted, unless you have given us consent to use your data for further application processes and to contact you accordingly. Regardless of the above, you have the option to have your electronic data deleted at any time. You can send your deletion request to the following email address: .

2.5 Trade Show Visits

When you visit us at a trade show, we process your basic data (e.g., names and addresses as well as your contact details). The basis for processing your personal data is the fulfillment of a contract to which you are a party.

2.6 In Connection with Prospects, Customers, Suppliers, and Service Providers

To fulfill our contractual and pre-contractual obligations, we process basic data (e.g., names and addresses as well as your contact details) and contract data (e.g., services provided, names of contact persons, payment information). The basis for processing your personal data is the fulfillment of a contract to which you are a party or the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

If we store your personal data due to a contractual relationship, these data remain stored for at least as long as the contractual relationship exists and at most for as long as limitation periods for possible claims or statutory or contractual retention obligations exist.

3. Deletion

 We process and store your personal data only for the period necessary to achieve the storage purpose or as required by laws or regulations to which we are subject. If the storage purpose ceases to apply or a prescribed retention period expires, your personal data will be routinely deleted in accordance with the legal provisions. Additionally, we will delete your personal data if you request us to do so at and we do not have any legal or contractual retention or other security obligations regarding these data.

4. Disclosure of Personal Data

We generally treat your personal data as confidential and will only disclose it if you have explicitly consented to it, if we are legally obliged to do so, or if it is necessary to enforce our rights, particularly to enforce claims arising from the contractual relationship. Furthermore, we disclose your personal data to third parties to the extent necessary for the use of the website or to provide services you have requested. The use of data disclosed for these purposes by third parties is strictly limited to the stated purposes. If the level of data protection in a country where the data is processed does not comply with applicable data protection regulations, we ensure contractually that the protection of your personal data corresponds to that in Switzerland at all times.

We disclose your personal data to the following categories of recipients:

  • Business units of BERHALTER AG
  • Service operators
  • Commercial partners, such as licensees and distributors

5.1 What Are Cookies?

When you visit a website, a cookie may be stored on your operating system. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your device by your browser. This cookie contains a unique character string that allows the browser to be identified when the website is accessed again. With the help of a cookie, information and offers on our website can be optimized according to your preferences. Cookies enable us to recognize visitors. The purpose of this recognition is to facilitate the use of our website for you. This also constitutes our legitimate interest in data processing.

5.2 What Data Is Stored in Cookies?

The cookies we use store only pseudonymous data. When the cookie is activated, it is assigned an identification number. Your name, IP address, or similar data that would allow direct assignment of the cookie to you is not stored in the cookie. Based on cookie technology, we receive only pseudonymized information.

5.3 What Types of Cookies Do We Use?

Temporary Cookies
We use temporary cookies. These are automatically deleted when you log out or close your browser. This includes session cookies, which store a session ID that can be used to assign various requests from your browser to the session. We use these cookies to ensure the operation and functionality of our website.

Non-personalized Cookies
Non-personalized cookies do not transmit any personal data to us. For example, statistics cookies help us understand how visitors interact with the website by collecting and reporting information anonymously.

Third-party Cookies
Furthermore, we use functions of some web analytics services that help us make our internet offering and website more interesting for you. For this purpose, cookies from partner companies are also stored on your hard drive during your visit to our website (so-called third-party cookies). For more information on the use of third-party cookies, please refer to the “Analysis Tools” section (see section 6).

Furthermore, you can delete already set cookies at any time via an internet browser or other software programs. The procedure for controlling and deleting cookies depends on the browser you are using. You can find information on this in the help menu of your browser.

6. Analysis Tools

Google (Universal) Analytics

Based on our legitimate interests, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC (“Google”), or, if you have your habitual residence in the European Economic Area or Switzerland, Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). Google uses cookies. We use Google Analytics, including the features of Universal Analytics. Universal Analytics allows us to analyze activities on our pages across devices (e.g., accessing via laptop and later via a tablet). This enables us to assign data, sessions, and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus to analyze the activities of a user across devices.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google is certified under the Swiss-US and EU-US Privacy Shield Frameworks and thus ensures an adequate level of data protection for the transfer of personal data, which is comparable to that in the EU and thus also in Switzerland. Further information in this regard can be found at: Privacy Shield Framework.

Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of our website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide us with other services relating to website use and internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. We only use Google Analytics with IP anonymization enabled. This means that the IP address of users will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

You can prevent the collection and transmission of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on. An opt-out cookie is set, which prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this website. However, we would like to point out that if you do this, you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. To prevent collection by Universal Analytics across different devices, you must perform the opt-out on all systems used. Further information on Universal Analytics can be found here:

We take technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data against manipulation, loss, destruction, or unauthorized access by third parties, and to ensure the protection of your rights and compliance with applicable data protection regulations.
