Data protection and privacy
We are very delighted that you have shown interest in our enterprise. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for greenTEG AG. The use of the Internet pages of greenTEG AG is possible without any indication of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use special enterprise services via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. We also collect and maintain personal data of clients, suppliers, and other business partners and of people who work for them, or of people who provide us with business cards or other contact information, of people who use our contact form, of job applicants, employees, contractors, and investors. If the processing of personal data is necessary, we rely on one or more of the following processing conditions: to satisfy any legal and regulatory obligations to which we are subject; our legitimate interests in the effective delivery of products, information and services to you or the company you work for and in the effective and lawful operation of our business (provided these do not interfere with your rights); to perform our obligations under a contract with you or the company you work for; or where no other condition for processing is available, if you have given us consent to process your personal data for the relevant purpose.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, job title, company name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, or fax number of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to greenTEG AG. By means of this data protection declaration, our enterprise would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means of this data protection declaration, of the rights to which they are entitled.
As the controller, greenTEG AG has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to protect personal data from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction. Although we use appropriate security measures once we have received your personal data, the transmission of data over the internet (including by e-mail) is never completely secure. We endeavor to protect personal data, but we cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted to or by us. Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection may not be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alternative means, e.g. by telephone.
When you provide personal data to us, we may us it for any purposes described in this Document or as stated at the point of collection, or as obvious from the context of collection.
1. Name and Address of the controller
Controller for the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), other data protection laws applicable in Switzerland and other provisions related to data protection is:
8153 Ruemlang Zurich
Phone: +41 44 515 09 15
If you have any questions or complaints about this Document or the way your personal data is processed, or if you would like to exercise one of your rights set out in this Document, please contact us at this address (by mail, e-mail, or phone).
2. Rights of the data subject
Each data subject shall have the rights granted by the European legislator according to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
3. Website: Cookies, third-party components and general data collection
The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.
On this website, the controller has integrated the component of Google Analytics (with the IP anonymizer function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics are mainly used for the optimization of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the traffic on our website. Google uses the collected data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website and to provide online reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to provide other services concerning the use of our Internet site for us.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject will automatically submit data through the Google Analytics component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, the enterprise Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently create commission settlements.
The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which the access was made, and the frequency of visits of our website by the data subject. With each visit to our Internet site, such personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.
The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.
Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and under http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. Google Analytics is further explained under the following Link https://www.google.com/analytics/.
General data collection
The website of greenTEG AG collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, greenTEG AG does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, greenTEG AG analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
4. Newsletter and tracking
On the website of greenTEG AG, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to one or more of our enterprise’s newsletters.
greenTEG AG informs its customers, business partners, and other interested persons regularly by means of a newsletter about the enterprise and selected activities or developments. The enterprise’s newsletters may only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the data subject registers for the newsletter shipping, or provides us his or her e-mail address at an exhibit and agrees to receive the Newsletter. In any event, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address registered by a data subject to activate the newsletter shipping. This confirmation e-mail is used to prove whether the owner of the e-mail address as the data subject is authorized to receive the newsletter.
During the registration for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject at the time of the registration, as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later date, and it therefore serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller.
The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by e-mail, as long as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a registration in question, as this could be the case in the event of modifications to the newsletter offer, or in the event of a change in technical circumstances. The newsletter services are operated by third parties. The subscription to our newsletter may be terminated by the data subject at any time. To unsubscribe from a newsletter, a corresponding link is found in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe by contacting the controller at the address mentioned above under section 2. If a subscriber who unsubscribes from a newsletter wishes to request the erasure of his or her personal data, he or she may contact the controller at the address mentioned above under section 2.
The newsletter of greenTEG AG contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, greenTEG AG may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, the IP address and which links in the e-mail were called up by data subjects.
Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analyzed by the controller in order to optimize the shipping of the newsletter, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. Third parties are collecting these data for us. If the data subject wishes to request the erasure of his or her personal data collected through the tracking pixels, he or she may contact the controller at the address mentioned above under section 2.
5. Applications and application procedures
The data controller shall collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of the processing of the application procedure. The processing may also be carried out electronically. This is the case, in particular, if an applicant submits corresponding application documents by e-mail to the controller.

Examples of sensitive personal data include ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or beliefs, trade union membership, genetic or health status, sexual orientation, and criminal records. If you choose to provide sensitive personal data to us for any reason, the act of doing so constitutes your explicit consent, where such consent is necessary and valid under your local law, for us to collect and use that information in the ways described in this Document or as described by us and accepted by you at the point where you disclosed such information. Before sensitive personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact the controller. The controller clarifies to the data subject whether the provision of the sensitive personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, and whether there is an obligation to provide the sensitive personal data and the consequences of non-provision of such data. Do not provide sensitive personal data to greenTEG AG, unless you hereby consent to greenTEG’s use of that data for its legitimate business purposes and consent to the transfer and storage of such information to and in greenTEG’s databases.

When we transfer personal data, we do so for the purposes for which it has been submitted or as outlined in this Document. We may transfer personal data across geographical borders and store personal data in a country other than where you are based. We do not transfer personal data to affiliates or third party providers unless they are bound to maintain appropriate security and confidentiality levels, to process the personal information only as instructed by us, and to pass on those same obligations down to their sub-processors. If a recipient of personal data is located in a country that does not have an adequate data protection level, personal data will only be transferred under an agreement which satisfies EU data protection requirements for the transfer of personal data.
We do not sell personal data to third parties.
