Download Privacy Policy Welle7 Website

The protection of your privacy is an important concern for us. Please take note of the following aspects of our Privacy Policy.

1. Scope of Application
This Privacy Policy applies to the website (the “Website”).

By using this Website, you agree to the collection and processing of the data concerning you in the manner described in this Privacy Policy and for the purposes described herein

2. Use of Data

  • Log Data
    Each time that you access the Website, certain usage data will be transmitted to us for technical reasons by your Internet browser and be stored in protocol data, the so-called „log data“. This consists of the following usage data: the date and time of access to the Website, the name of the Website/file(s) being accessed, the IP address of your computer or mobile device, the address of the Internet page from which you access our Website, the data volume being transmitted as well as the name and version of your browser.
    The analysis of the log data permits us to further improve our offering and design it in a more user-friendly manner, to locate and remedy errors more quickly and to manage server capacities. Based on the log data, for example, we can determine the time at which the use of our offering is most popular and make corresponding data volumes available in order to ensure the best possible usage for you.
  • Cookies
    We employ so-called „cookies“. More detailed information in this regard can be found at Information about Cookies.
  • Customer Data
    We use your personal and/or company-related data in connection with the conclusion and performance of the contracts entered into with you, such as, in particular, for the creditworthiness check, control of adherence to our General Terms and Conditions, the execution of orders, invoicing, customer services, etc. We also may use the data for shopping basket analyses and the analysis of purchases (customer profile). This relates, on the one hand, to the personal and/or company-related data provided by you in connection with the registration as well as to the data with respect to the individual orders placed by you.

3. Customer Account
You may register on the website and open a customer account. In order to open a customer account, you must sign up on the website and provide the requested personal information as well as a user name and password. User names and passwords are to be handled confidentially. We are not liable if user names or passwords are known to unauthorized third parties and misused by them. Through the customer account, you may order online services offered on the website, such as, e.g., the Welle7 Workspace or the Welle7 Collect-Lounge. Further, you have access to and can manage your customer status data (name, address, email, phone number, etc.) as well as – depending on the offer – data concerning the orders placed by you.

4. Data Transmission via Internet
The Internet is an open network accessible by all and therefore cannot be deemed to be a secure environment. Further, it is possible that data, within the scope of the transmission, will be transferred abroad and therefore potentially to a country that has a lower level of data protection than Switzerland, even if the sender and recipient are located in Switzerland. We disclaim any and all liability for the security of data during the transmission via Internet.

5. No Forwarding of Information
Your personal and/or company-related data will not be sold or shared with third parties outside of the Migros Community. Exceptions: External service providers who work on our behalf, e.g., in connection with the execution of orders, and who process the data that is absolutely necessary in this regard. It is ensured that all entities that process personal and/or company-related data on our behalf adhere to the requirements of data protection and data security.

6. Advertising Mail / Emails / Newsletters
You will receive advertising mail, emails or newsletters from us or other Migros Group companies only with your consent and may withdraw from the receipt of further communications at any time. In order to optimally tailor the messages and offers transmitted to you to your needs, your click and reading behavior may be analyzed. Please remember that unencrypted data that is transmitted can be read or altered at any time by unauthorized third parties.

7. Services from Third Party Providers, in Particular Google Analytics and Facebook-“I like”/”gefällt mir"
This Website uses services of the Migros Community as well as services of third party providers (hereinafter collectively referred to as “Services”), in particular Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc., as well as “like” / “gefällt mir” social plugins of Facebook Inc. (hereinafter referred to as “Providers”). Such Services collect information and may in particular use so-called "cookies" (cf. Information about Cookies).

The information about your usage of this Website that is produced (including your surfing behavior and your IP address) may be transferred to our server or servers of third parties in Switzerland or abroad and be stored and processed there. We and the Providers may use this information in order to analyze your usage of the Website, compile reports concerning the Website activities for us and provide further services connected to the Website usage and the Internet usage or to contact you with advertising. This information, too, may be transferred to additional third parties in Switzerland and abroad. No adequate data protection, however, may exist abroad. Although the information produced does not contain any direct information concerning you, it is not precluded that a Provider can attribute this information to you based on additional information available to the Provider (e.g. if you are a member of Facebook). In this regard, the relevant rules for the processing of your personal data between you and the relevant Provider apply.

Further information about the handling of produced information as well as about the approach in connection with the management of the corresponding data privacy and storage settings can  be found on the web page of the relevant Provider (e.g., relating to Google Analytics).

8. Retention and Protection of Your Data
We take appropriate precautionary measures and employ corresponding security technology to protect your data. The data remains stored only as long as is required with a view to the purpose.

9. Questions as to Data Protection
For any questions, requests for corrections or for deletion you may have we kindly ask you to use the contact form available via the link «About us».
