The Data Controller in terms of data protection legislation, particularly the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) is:
Onyx Circle AG
As a HR consultancy firm registered in Switzerland, we specialise in deploying professional and executives domestically and abroad.
When you send us your documents containing personal data, i.e. your CV or similar records, you consent to the storage and processing of this data in accordance with the GDPR.
Before we disclose your data to third parties, we shall first consult you and obtain your consent in each case.
If you provide us with personal data, you are considered a data subject in accordance with the GDPR, and you are consequently entitled to the following rights:
Right to information
You reserve the right to submit a request for information to us, and we shall be required to inform your which information we have stored on you. We will usually require you to verify your identity. Furthermore, we are also entitled to deny your request where legally permitted. We will always provide a reason if your request is denied.
Right to rectification or erasure
You have the right to demand that we erase your data if we no longer require it for the purpose we originally collected and/or processed it for. If you withdraw previously granted consent to the processing of your personal data, we shall erase your data without undue delay, provided there are no legal provisions that require us to continue processing the data in question. If we are required to satisfy our duties as Controller, we must erase your data. If we are found to have unlawfully processed your data, we shall erase it without undue delay. You reserve the right to request that we rectify inaccurate or incomplete personal data that we store on you at any time.
Right to restrict data processing
You are entitled to request that we restrict the processing of your personal data. This means that we will continue to store your data but shall no longer perform any processing tasks. This restriction shall remain in place until you provide your consent otherwise, or, after examining the situation, we come to the conclusion that further processing is required to exercise, defend or assert legal claims. We may also deem processing necessary when we are required to safeguard the rights of other individuals or if it is required due to the legitimate public interest of the EU or a member state.
Right to object to processing
According to this right, you are entitled to object to the processing of your personal data by us. If you have any objections to us processing your personal data on the basis of a legitimate interest, as we deem the processing necessary in your legitimate interests, we shall be required to cease the corresponding processing due to your appeal following a review. We will subsequently review whether we can verify that we have overriding legitimate interests in the processing that outweigh your interests, or we are required to continue processing your data to assert, exercise or defend against a legal claim.
If you have previously granted us your consent to the processing of your personal data for certain purposes, you reserve the right to withdraw this consent at any time. We will cease the processing to which you previously consented if we are of the opinion that there are no alternative grounds that permit continued processing of your data for this purpose. You shall be informed accordingly in this case.
In our partnerships with our hosting providers, we undertake to safeguard the databases against third-party access, loss, misuse or fraud to the greatest possible extent.
Please note that online data transmissions (e.g. email communication) may be subject to security gaps. We are unable to warrant complete protection of data against third party access.
When you use this website, you consent to the collection, processing and use of data according to the following information. You will be able to use this website without creating an account. In this case, data such as the pages accessed or names of request files and the date and time of your visit will be stored on the server for statistical purposes without it being possible to directly assign this data to your person. Personal data, particularly your name, address and email address shall only be collected on a voluntary basis, where possible. Your data will not be disclosed to third parties without your consent.
Processing of personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. A data subject is the person who is the subject of the data being processed. Processing means any operation performed on personal data, whether by automated means or not, in particular the storage, dissemination, collection, erasure, recording, adaptation, destruction and use of personal data.
We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection legislation. Furthermore, if and to the extent that the EU GDPR is applicable, we process personal data according to the following legal basis in conjunction with Art. 6(1) GDPR:
- a) the data subject has given consent to the processing of their personal data.
- b) processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract.
- c) processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject according to any applicable EU law or any applicable law of a country where the GDPR applies in whole or in part.
- d) processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person.
- f) processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject. Legitimate interests in this context are, in particular, our commercial interest in being able to provide our website, information security, enforcing certain legal claims and complying with Swiss law.
We process personal data for the duration of time for which it is required to fulfil the respective purpose or purposes. If statutory or other obligations to which we are subject require an extended retention period, we shall restrict processing accordingly.
