Privacy Policy

Protection of your privacy during the processing of personal data and the security of all personal data is of great importance to us. The collection and processing of personal data comply with legal provisions (the fully revised Federal Data Protection Act, effective since September 1, 2023).

The responsible entity under the data protection law is Softcash AG, Chaltenbodenstrasse 16, 8834 Schindellegi, Switzerland (hereinafter referred to as “we”/”Softcash AG”).

With this privacy policy, we inform you about which data we process from you, why we need this data, and what rights you have.

What personal data do we collect and for what purposes?

During registration on our website, we ask for personal details. It’s your decision to provide these details.

All personal data collected by us are for the purpose of processing inquiries and orders and are, therefore, collected within the scope of our relationship with you.

The data we collect includes, on the one hand, your details and, on the other hand, all documents submitted by you in the context of making contact, an inquiry, or an order.

Users who subscribe to our newsletter must provide the following information: email address, first name, and last name. Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional emails can click on a link named “unsubscribe from the newsletter” in the respective mailing.

If you apply for a position through our application portal, we collect the information and documents provided at the time of entry into the application portal. We use the personal data transmitted via the application portal exclusively for the purpose of conducting the application process. In this context, all data related to you, which you submit with your application, are stored by us. This includes your personal details, your correspondence data, your cover letter, your resume, your diplomas and work references, and other information you provide with your application (collectively referred to as “application documents”). If you provide references, we are entitled to inquire about your previous work. If you apply for a position/function in an area that requires increased trust in the holder of the position (e.g., executive positions, security-related functions), we are also entitled to request or obtain credit reports (debt collection register extract) or information about any previous convictions (criminal record extract).

Particularly sensitive personal data (e.g., data concerning health or religious affiliation) are only processed if essential for the application process. Access to such data is strictly limited and is only granted to those persons within Softcash AG who need to process them as part of their duties.

Automatically Collected Data

We automatically collect and store log file information on our servers, which your browser sends to us. These are:

  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL (the previously visited page)
  • Hostname of the accessing computer (IP address)
  • Time of the server request

This data cannot be assigned to specific individuals by us. This information is not merged with data from other sources and is deleted after statistical analysis.


You can prevent the storage or installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly. However, this may mean that you cannot use all the functions of our website to their full extent.

How do we handle your personal data?

We only collect, process, and store personal data in accordance with applicable legal provisions or if you have given us your further consent for such activities. We collect, process, and store personal data only for the purpose that is apparent to you or to the extent that we are legally entitled to do so, and we do not exceed this authorization in our processing activities. With appropriate periodic measures, we keep your personal data up-to-date, if necessary for our activity. 

Where do we process your data?

We store and process your data on our servers as well as within the EU/EEA area.

Do we share your personal data with third parties or abroad?

As a rule, we do not pass on your personal data to third parties, except with your consent or based on a legal basis, but only to the extent necessary for processing your case.

We also use data processors for certain data processing tasks. We ensure contractually, organizationally, and technically that they always process your personal data strictly according to our instructions, purpose-bound, and with the highest confidentiality and security measures.

How long do we store your personal data?

We store your personal data as long as necessary for the purpose of processing unless there is a longer legal retention period or Softcash AG can assert a predominant interest in longer storage.

Is your personal data secure?

In close cooperation with our IT provider and other data processors, we implement suitable technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data stored with us against loss, unauthorized access, or manipulation. Our security measures are adapted to technological developments.

What rights do you have regarding your personal data?

With respect to your personal data, you have the following rights:
  • You can request information about which personal data we have collected and stored about you.
  • You can request that we correct or supplement your personal data if the data we have stored is incorrect or incomplete.
  • You can request the deletion of your personal data at any time.
  • You can revoke your consent to the processing of your personal data at any time if you have previously agreed to it.

To exercise your rights, you can reach us by post or email (see the following section “Who can you address your questions to?”). Proof of authorization (e.g., by presenting a copy of an ID) must be attached and will be reviewed by us. Under certain circumstances, especially if there’s a lack of authorization or if there are overriding opposing interests or the protection-worthy interests of third parties, information can be limited or denied.

Who can you address your questions to?

Your trust is important to us. Therefore, we want to always be available to answer any questions regarding the processing of your personal data. If you have questions that this privacy policy could not answer or if you would like more detailed information on a point, please contact the Data Protection Officer of Softcash AG.
