1. General information

With this Privacy Policy we would like to inform you about how we process personal data within the scope of our business activities and inform you about your rights. We are aware of the importance of processing personal data for you as a user and the protection of your privacy is of the utmost importance to us.

Based on Article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution and the data protection regulations of the Swiss Confederation (Data Protection Act, DSG), every person is entitled to protection of his or her privacy and to protection against misuse of his or her personal data. We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the legal data protection regulations and this privacy policy.

As an internationally operating company, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) is important to us in addition to the Swiss data protection regulations. We have aligned this Privacy Policy with the stricter standard of the GDPR.

In cooperation with our hosting providers, we make every effort to protect the databases as much as possible against unauthorized access, loss, misuse or corruption.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have vulnerabilities. A complete data protection against access by third parties is not possible.

By using this website, you agree to the collection, processing and use of data in accordance with the following description. In general, this website can be visited without registration. Data such as pages called up or names of files called up, date and time are stored on the server for statistical purposes without these data being directly related to your person. Personal data, in particular name, address or e-mail address are collected as far as possible on a voluntary basis. The data will not be passed on to third parties without your agreement.

2. Processing of personal data

Personal data is all information that relates to an identified or identifiable person. A data subject is a person about whom personal data is processed. Processing includes any handling of personal data, irrespective of the means and procedures used, in particular the storage, disclosure, procurement, deletion, storage, modification, destruction and use of personal data.

We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law. In addition, we process personal data – insofar and to the extent that the EU GDPR is applicable – in accordance with the following legal principles in connection with Art. 6 Para. 1 GDPR:

  • lit. a) Processing of personal data with the consent of the person concerned.
  • lit. b) Processing of personal data for the purpose of fulfilling a contract with the data subject and for carrying out appropriate pre-contractual measures.
  • lit. c) Processing of personal data for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which we are subject under any applicable law of the EU or under any applicable law of a country in which the GDPR is applicable in whole or in part.
  • lit. d) Processing of personal data to protect vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person.
  • lit. f) Processing of personal data to safeguard the legitimate interests of us or of third parties, except where such interests are overridden by fundamental freedoms and rights or by the interests of the data subject. Legitimate interests are in particular our business interest in being able to provide our website, information security, the enforcement of our own legal claims and compliance with Swiss law.

We process personal data for as long as is necessary for the respective purpose or purposes. In the case of longer-term storage obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we restrict processing accordingly.

3. Use of our offers

Depending on the specific offer that you use via Uplyfe, certain elements of your personal data required for the use of the offer and for the implementation of the contract (including payment processing) will be gathered. In addition, we may process personal data (e.g. on your specific usage patterns) in order to become more familiar with you and inform you of further offers in the future, which we will be able to tailor more closely to your requirements based on the information we have on you already. In certain circumstances, we may also use your personal data for statistical purposes, albeit solely on an anonymous basis, so that your identity cannot be deduced.

In the above-mentioned situation, for example, we will process the following personal data provided by you during registration or during your use of the app:

  • Personal data (e.g. name, age, gender, contact details, e-mail address, etc.);
  • Data about the self-care program that you have chosen;
  • Measurement data that you enter in connection with the offer selected or a specific treatment (e.g. your current state of health, general treatment data, information on whether or not you are pregnant, information on your cardiovascular circulation, diabetes, blood pressure, blood sugar levels, etc.);
  • Information on your dietary habits (e.g. nutrition plan, recipes selected, products selected, special diets, etc.);
  • Information on activities entered via Uplyfe and measurement data connected with them (e.g. jogging activity, fitness training, etc.);
  • Information on your behavior in other areas of life (e.g. sleeping habits, etc.);
  • Information as to whether you use the services of our cooperation partners (e.g. pharmacists, insurers);
  • Additional information may be gathered depending on the offer;
  • Communication: notices regarding technical issues or changes to the Products, some of which you cannot opt out;
  • Product satisfaction data: We collect data on your satisfaction with the Products. Such data will be processed to analyze user satisfaction and to improve our Products. Such data will only be stored for as long as it is necessary for the purpose the data was obtained for.

As a matter of principle, we will process only the personal data which you provide us. You are under no obligation to provide us with any given information, unfortunately we will often be unable to offer you the full extent of our services unless you disclose certain personal data and allow us to process that data.

If we need to process special categories of personal data that requires particular protection, we will ask for your express consent before doing so.

We also process personal data in order to comply with legal provisions. These include regulatory provisions in particular, as well as disclosing documents to a public authority if we have good reason to do so or if we are compelled to do so by law.

5. Parties to whom your personal data may be disclosed

We may disclose your personal data to third parties if we wish to retain the services of the latter (“order data processors”), for example with regard to IT services (e.g. data hosting services, cloud services, the sending of e-mail newsletters, data analysis and data enhancement, etc.).

We will select our order data processors and conclude suitable contractual agreements to ensure that your personal data is protected for the entire period during which it is processed, including by third parties. Our order data processors are under a duty not to process personal data other than on instruction from and as instructed by us.

We may furthermore disclose your personal data to other third parties (including) for their own purposes. This is done either on an anonymous basis, so that your identity cannot be deduced, or solely with your express consent, for example if you wish to share your personal data with specific recipients, if you are complying with a request for treatment or if you are making use of an offer from one of our cooperation partners (e.g. pharmacists). In these cases, the recipient of your personal data is where applicable responsible in its own right for processing that data, and as such sets out its own data protection provisions to define how it processes your personal data.

We may additionally disclose your personal data to third parties (e.g. authorities in Switzerland and abroad) where required to do so by law. We furthermore reserve the right to process your personal data if so required to comply with a judicial order or to enforce or defend against a legal claim, or if we deem it necessary for any other legal grounds.

6. Legal basis

To the extent that we need a legal basis on which to process your personal data, we will rely on the following legal bases:

  • Your authorization, where required for the specific processing in question;
  • The performance of the contract with you;
  • Our justified interests;
  • The enforcement, exercise or defense against legal claims.

We store and process your personal data for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which we collected it. As a general rule, we store your personal data for the period for which you have installed the App and your account on your terminal or for which your account with us is active. If you delete your account in the App from your terminal, all information concerning you will be permanently deleted or anonymized, unless we have a justified interest in storing your personal data for a longer period (e.g. for evidentiary or security reasons, to guard against legal claims or to comply with legal obligations).
