Ina Praetorius (Private person), Kirchenrain 10, 9630 Wattwil, as well as our employees and representatives (hereinafter collectively referred to as "we," "us") collect and process personal data related to you (e.g., customers, contract partners), applicants in the context of job applications, or other individuals ("Third Parties").
Here, we use the term "data" interchangeably with "personal data." "Personal data" refers to data related to specific or identifiable individuals, and "processing" means any handling of personal data, including collection, acquisition, storage, modification, disclosure, and deletion.
We take the protection of personal data very seriously. All personal data is handled with the utmost care. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are here to assist you

For questions or requests, please contact us in writing at the address mentioned above. Alternatively, you can also send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will process and respond to these requests within 30 days as required by law.
We process various categories of personal data related to you (including serviced customers). The main categories include:
Many of the data we process are provided by you (e.g., in connection with our services or communication with us). You are generally not obligated to provide your data except in specific cases (e.g., legal obligations). However, if you want to enter into contracts with us or avail of our services, you must provide us with certain data.
We may also obtain data from publicly accessible sources (e.g., debt collection registers, media, or the internet, including social media) or receive it from authorities (e.g., municipalities, regulatory authorities), your employer, which is in a business relationship with us or otherwise associated with us, and other third parties (e.g., associations). This includes all the data categories listed in Section 2 as well as data from correspondence and meetings with third parties.
In connection with our contracts, website, services, legal obligations, or otherwise to protect our legitimate interests and the purposes listed in Section 4, we may disclose your personal data to third parties, especially the following categories of recipients:
All these categories of recipients may involve third parties, making your data accessible to them. We may restrict processing by certain third parties (e.g., IT providers), but not by others (e.g., authorities, banks, etc.).
We mainly process and store personal data in Switzerland and the European Economic Area (EEA), but exceptionally – for example, through subcontractors of our service providers – potentially in any country in the world.
If a recipient is in a country without adequate legal data protection, we contractually obligate the recipient to comply with applicable data protection laws (we use the European Commission's revised standard contractual clauses, which are available here: eur-lex.europa.eu/eli/dec_impl/2021/914/oj). This is the case unless the recipient is already subject to a legally recognized framework for ensuring data protection, and we cannot rely on an exemption. Exceptions may apply, especially in foreign legal proceedings, or in cases involving overriding public interests, or when contract execution requires such disclosure, or when data is publicly available and you have not objected to its processing.
We process your data as long as necessary for our processing purposes, legal retention periods, our legitimate interests in processing for documentation and evidential purposes, or as long as storage is technically required (e.g., for backups or document management systems). If there are no legal, contractual obligations, or technical reasons to the contrary, we will delete your data after six months from the end of the storage or processing period within our regular processes.
You have certain rights in connection with our data processing. In accordance with applicable law, you can request information about the processing of your personal data, request corrections to incorrect personal data, demand the deletion of personal data, object to data processing, request the release of certain personal data in a commonly used electronic format, or their transfer to other data controllers, or revoke your consent to the processing of personal data, to the extent that the processing is based on your consent.
If you wish to exercise your rights with us, please contact us; our contact details can be found in Section 1. To prevent abuse, we may need to verify your identity (e.g., if necessary, with a copy of your identification document).
Please note that these rights are subject to certain conditions, exceptions, or restrictions (e.g., for the protection of third parties and/or trade secrets). We reserve the right to redact or provide partial copies for data protection or confidentiality reasons.
When using our website (including newsletters and other digital offerings), data is generated and stored in logs (especially technical data).
You can configure your browser to automatically reject, accept, or delete cookies. You can also disable or delete cookies on a case-by-case basis. Instructions on how to manage cookies in your browser can be found in your browser's help menu.
Generally, the technical data we collect and cookies do not contain personal data. However, personal data that we or third-party service providers store from you (e.g., if you have a user account with us or these providers) may be linked with the technical data and information obtained from cookies, potentially revealing your identity.
We may occasionally use social media plugins, which are small software components that establish a connection between your visit to our website and a third-party provider. The social media plugin informs the third-party provider that you have visited our website and may transmit cookies that the provider previously placed on your web browser. Further information about how these third-party providers use personal data collected via their social media plugins can be found in their respective privacy policies.

We may operate pages and other online presences on social networks and platforms operated by third parties and process data about you in this context.

They also process this data for their own purposes (e.g., marketing and market research or platform management) and act as data controllers in this regard.

We would be happy to provide you with further details about our activities on social networks upon request. We are entitled, but not obligated, to review content before or after its publication on our online presences, to delete content without notice, and, if necessary, to report it to the provider of the relevant platform.
We implement appropriate organizational and technical measures to maintain the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of your personal data and to protect it from manipulation, loss, destruction, or unauthorized processing.
