I. 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.
This Privacy Policy does not apply to information collected offline or by third parties not affiliated
with Uplyfe that the Site may link to (“Third Party Sites”). Please read this Privacy Policy and the
Terms of Use (https://uplyfe.io/en/terms-of-use/) carefully before using the Site.
BY USING THE SERVICES, YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS; IF YOU DO NOT AGREE, DO NOT USE THE
SERVICES.

 

II. 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.

III. 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.

IV. Compliance with legal requirements

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.

V. 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.

 

VI. 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.

VII. What are your rights in terms of the processing of your
personal data?

You may object to your data being processed at any time and are generally free to revoke your
authorization to your data being processed. In particular, you are entitled to object to your data
being processed in connection with direct advertising (e.g. against e-mail marketing).

You furthermore have the following rights:
– Right to be informed: You have the right to be informed of how we are processing
your personal data and of the rights you have in connection with the processing of
your personal data.
– Right to access: You have the right to access the personal data that we have on
record for you, free of charge and at any time, if we process that data. This means
that you have the right to check which personal data of youwe are processing.
– Right to correct: You have the right to rectify any incorrect or incomplete personal
data concerning you. In this case, we will inform the recipients of the data
concerned of any corrections that are made, unless this is impossible or would
involve disproportionate effort or expense.
– Right to delete: You have the right to have your personal data deleted on request,
provided that we are no longer required to store it by law.
– Right to restrict processing: Subject to certain conditions, you have the right to
request that the processing of your personal data be limited.
– Right to have data transferred: You have the right to obtain the personal data that
you have provided to us, in a legible format and free of charge, or to have us
transfer that data to another responsible party.
– Right to lodge a complaint: You have the right to lodge a complaint with the
competent data protection authority against the manner in which your personal
data is processed.
– Right to withdraw: As a matter of principle, you have the right to withdraw any
given consent at any time. Any data processing activities previously carried out
based on your original consent will not however thereby become unlawful.

VIII. For how long do we store your personal data?

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).
IX. How do we protect your personal data?
We take appropriate security measures of a technical nature (e.g. encryption, access restriction,
data backup, etc.) and of an organisational nature (e.g. instructions to our employees, etc.) to
guarantee the security of your personal data, to protect it against unauthorised or unlawful
processing and to counteract the risk of loss, unintentional modification, undesired disclosure or
unauthorised access. As a general rule, however, security risks cannot be completely excluded; 
certain residual risks are unavoidable.

 

X. Modifications to this data privacy notice

This data privacy notice may be adapted over time, especially if we change our data processing
procedures or if new legal provisions come into effect. We will actively inform persons whose
contact details are registered with us in the event of any significant changes, where this is
possible without disproportionate effort or expenditure. As a general rule, however, the version
of the data privacy notice in force when the processing concerned began shall apply.

XV. Google AdWords

This website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you have reached our website via an ad placed
by Google, Google Adwords will set a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is
set when a user clicks on an ad served by Google. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not
personally identifiable. If the user visits certain pages on our site and the cookie hasn’t expired,
we and Google can tell that the user clicked the ad and was redirected to that page. Each Google
AdWords customer receives a different cookie. As a result, cookies cannot be tracked across the
websites of AdWords customers. The information collected through the conversion cookie is
used to compile conversion statistics for advertisers who have opted in to conversion tracking.
Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a
page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be
used to personally identify users.
If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can refuse to accept cookies by changing your

stored in the visitor’s browser, which makes it possible to recognize the visitor when he or she
calls up websites that belong to the Google advertising network. On these pages the visitor may
be presented with advertisements relating to content that the visitor has previously viewed on
websites that use Google’s remarketing function. According to its own statements, Google does
not collect any personal data during this process. If you still do not wish to use Google’s
remarketing function, you can deactivate it by making the appropriate settings at

your IP address) is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. We would
like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code
„gat._anonymizeIp();“ in order to ensure an anonymised recording of IP addresses (so-called IP-
Masking). If anonymisation is active, Google will shorten IP addresses within member states of
the European Union or in other states that are party to the Agreement on the European
Economic Area, which means that no conclusions can be drawn about your identity. Only in
exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and
shortened there. Google observes the data protection regulations of the „Privacy Shield“
agreement and is registered with the „Privacy Shield“ program of the US Department of
