Cleanfix, the operator of this site, takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.
In cooperation with our hosting providers, we make every effort to protect the databases as well as possible against unauthorised access, loss, misuse or falsification.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
By using this website, you consent to the collection, processing and use of data in accordance with the following description, insofar as your consent is required. This website can generally be visited without registration. Data such as pages accessed or names of the files accessed, date and time are stored on the server for statistical purposes without this data being directly related to your person. Personal data, in particular name, address or e-mail address, are collected on a voluntary basis as far as possible.
Processing of personal data
Personal data is any 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, regardless of the means and procedures used, in particular the acquisition, storage, retention, use, modification, disclosure, archiving, deletion or destruction of personal data.
We primarily process the personal data that we receive from our customers and other business partners in the course of our business relationship with them and other persons involved or that we collect from their users in the operation of our websites, apps and other applications.
Execution of contracts
For the execution of contracts, both with our customers and with our suppliers, we process personal data. This personal data is provided to us directly by our customers or suppliers and is retained by us for as long as either the customer or supplier relationship continues or there is a legal obligation to retain it.
If you wish to place an order in our webshop, it is necessary for the conclusion of the contract that you provide your personal data, which we require for the processing of your order. For this purpose, we may pass on your payment details to our bank. In order to be able to use our webshop, you must open a customer account, through which your data will be stored for future purchases. You can delete the customer account at any time.
In our online shop, we offer the payment service provider Mastercard for the processing of payments. The provider is the company Mastercard Inc. based in the USA. The company Mastercard Europa SA, based in Belgium, is responsible for Europe.

Mastercard uses the data collected to process payment transactions, prevent fraud and improve their services. They may also use data for marketing purposes unless the customer has objected.
Mastercard may share data with other financial institutions, regulators and legal bodies, especially when it comes to fraud prevention or legal requirements.
Cardholders have certain rights in relation to their data, including the right to access, correct and delete their personal information.
Mastercard is required to comply with various national and international data protection laws, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union.
The processing of your payment information is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO, which allows the processing of data for the performance of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

TWINT processes your personal data such as your surname, first name, date of birth, telephone number, bank details, proof of identity, e-mail address and location data (subject to consent) in order to complete the payment transaction and prevent attempted fraud.
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the provision of the service. Data that must be kept longer by law, such as payment data, is exempt from deletion. We also retain contractual data for longer, as this is required by statutory retention obligations.
TWINT may share data with other financial institutions, supervisory authorities and legal institutions, especially when it comes to fraud prevention or legal requirements.
TWINT has its own data protection guidelines that govern the processing, storage and protection of your personal data. We recommend that you read TWINT's data protection guidelines carefully to find out more about your rights and the processing of your personal data.

The information provided to us via the contact form may be used by us for advertising purposes. If advertising is only permissible with your consent, we will ask for your consent in each case. You can revoke your consent at any time. However, this will not affect the data processing carried out based on this consent until then. User data will be deleted after revocation of consent unless the data controller has a legitimate interest in further retention. This may be the case if we are required to continue storing the data due to a contract with you. In any case, only the data that is absolutely necessary to achieve the respective purpose will continue to be stored.
When you visit our website, cookies and other tracking technologies may be used to collect information about your usage behavior. Before using these cookies, we ask for your consent through the cookie banner displayed to you during your first visit to our website. With the help of Cookie First, you can adjust your cookie settings at any time and withdraw your consent.
The use of Cookie First is based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can adjust your cookie settings at any time through the cookie banner or your browser settings.
Please note that we have no control over the data collection and processing by Cookie First and cannot take responsibility for it.
Google Tag Manager
We use Google Tag Manager on our website, a service provided by Google Ireland Limited ("Google"). Google Tag Manager allows us to implement and manage website tags and tracking scripts. Through Google Tag Manager, third-party tags on our website may be activated that may collect data. However, Google Tag Manager itself does not collect personal data; it is simply a management solution for integrating and managing tags.
The use of Google Tag Manager is based on our legitimate interest in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR to improve the efficiency of our website and facilitate the smooth integration of third-party tags. Please note that Google Tag Manager may implement other tags that may collect personal data. We have no control over the data collection and processing by these tags. We recommend reading the privacy policies of the respective third-party providers for information on data usage by them and your rights and privacy protection options.
Google Ireland (based in Ireland) is the provider of the "Google Analytics" service and acts as our data processor. Google Ireland relies on Google LLC (based in the USA) as its data processor (both referred to as "Google").
Google uses performance cookies (see above) to track the behavior of visitors to our website (duration, frequency of page views, geographical origin of access, etc.) and generates reports for us based on this information regarding the use of our website.
We have configured the service to truncate the IP addresses of visitors from Europe before they are transferred to the USA, making them non-identifiable.
We have disabled the "Data Sharing" and "Signals" settings. Although we can assume that the information we share with Google is not personal data, it is possible that Google may draw conclusions about the identities of visitors, create personal profiles, and link this data with the Google accounts of these individuals.
If you consent to the use of Google Analytics, you explicitly consent to such processing, including the transfer of personal data (especially usage data related to the website and app, device information, and individual IDs) to the USA and other countries. You can find information on the privacy of Google Analytics here: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245, and if you have a Google account, you can find more information about processing by Google here: https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites?hl=en.
To disable Google Analytics, Google provides a browser plug-in at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
We use Google Ads, an online advertising program provided by Google Ireland Limited ("Google"). Google Ads allows us to display advertisements on Google search result pages, websites in the Google Display Network, and other Google services.
As part of using Google Ads, personal data may be processed, such as your IP address, location, search behavior, or interactions with our ads. This data is used to present you with relevant and targeted advertising.
The use of Google Ads is based on our legitimate interest in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR to promote our products and services and reach potential customers.
Google Ads Conversion Tracking
This website utilizes Google Conversion Tracking. If you arrived at our website via an ad placed by Google, Google Ads (formerly known as Google AdWords) will place a cookie on your computer. The Conversion Tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits specific pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Therefore, cookies cannot be tracked across the websites of Ads customers. The information obtained through the Conversion Cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Ads customers who have opted for Conversion Tracking. We learn the total number of users who clicked on our ad and were redirected to a page with a Conversion Tracking tag. However, you will not receive any information that can personally identify users.
If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can reject the setting of the necessary cookie, for example, through browser settings that disable the automatic setting of cookies or by configuring your browser to block cookies from the domain "googleleadservices.com." Please note that you should not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not want to record measurement data. If you have deleted all your cookies in the browser, you will need to set the respective opt-out cookie again.
Google Re/Marketing Services
Based on our legitimate interests (i.e., an interest in the analysis, optimization, and cost-effective operation of our online offering within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR), we use the marketing and remarketing services (short "Google Marketing Services") of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, ("Google").
Google Marketing Services allow us to display advertisements for and on our website in a more targeted manner, showing users only ads that potentially match their interests. For example, if a user is shown ads for products they have expressed interest in on other websites, this is referred to as "remarketing." For these purposes, when our website and other websites with Google Marketing Services active are accessed, Google immediately executes a code from Google, and so-called (re)marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also known as "web beacons") are integrated into the website.
With their help, an individual cookie is stored on the user's device, i.e., a small file (similar technologies can also be used instead of cookies). The cookies can be set by various domains, including google.com, doubleclick.net, invitemedia.com, admeld.com, googlesyndication.com, or googleadservices.com. This file records which websites the user has visited, which content they are interested in, and which offers they have clicked on, as well as technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, visit time, and other information about the use of the online offering.
The IP address of the users is also recorded, but we inform Google Analytics that the IP address is shortened within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area and is only transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. The IP address is not merged with user data within other Google offerings. The information mentioned above may also be linked by Google to information from other sources. If the user subsequently visits other websites, they may be shown ads tailored to their interests.
User data is processed pseudonymously within the framework of Google Marketing Services. This means that Google does not store and process the name or email address of the users, but processes the relevant data cookie-related within pseudonymous user profiles. From Google's perspective, the ads are not managed and displayed for a specifically identified person but for the cookie holder, regardless of who that cookie holder is. This does not apply if a user has expressly allowed Google to process the data without this pseudonymization. The information collected by Google Marketing Services about users is transmitted to Google and stored on Google's servers in the USA.
One of the Google Marketing Services we use is the online advertising program "Google Ads." In the case of Google Ads, each Google Ads customer receives a different "Conversion Cookie." Therefore, cookies cannot be tracked across the websites of Google Ads customers. The information obtained through the cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Google Ads customers who have opted for Conversion Tracking. Google Ads customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a Conversion Tracking tag. However, they will not receive any information that can personally identify users.
If you wish to opt out of interest-based advertising by Google Marketing Services, you can use the settings and opt-out options provided by Google: https://adssettings.google.com/anonymous?hl=en.
Use of Google Web Fonts
To receive further information about our services, you can also subscribe to an email newsletter.
To activate the newsletter, the so-called double opt-in procedure is applied, meaning you can only receive the newsletter after you have explicitly confirmed that you want to activate it. Once you have activated the newsletter, you will receive a notification email.
You can withdraw your consent at any time. However, this does not affect data processing that has already occurred based on this consent.
User data will be deleted upon withdrawal of consent, unless the controller has a legitimate interest in further retention. This may be the case if we need to continue storing the data due to a contract with you. In any case, only the data that is absolutely necessary to achieve the respective purpose will continue to be stored.
Personal data submitted with an application will be used solely for the purpose of personnel recruitment.
The legal basis for processing your data is your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 a) GDPR or Art. 13 para. 1 GDPR), and, if sensitive data is processed, your explicit consent (Art. 9 para. 2 a) GDPR or Art. 13 para. 1 GDPR), the performance of pre-contractual measures at your request (Art. 6 para. 1 b) GDPR or Art. 13 para. 2 lit. a GDPR), as well as the protection of our legitimate interests in conducting efficient applicant management (Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR or Art. 13 para. 1 GDPR).
If the application results in hiring, the applicant's data will be transferred to our personnel file and stored in accordance with legal regulations for employment relationships.
If the application does not result in hiring, we will delete applicant data no later than four months after the conclusion of the application process, unless a legal obligation requires longer retention or we are allowed to retain applicant data to fulfill legal obligations or to defend against or assert legal claims.
As part of the selection process, we may obtain references from former employers of applicants to better assess their suitability and fit for our organization. The collection of such references is only done with prior voluntary consent and can be revoked at any time.
In certain cases, we may share or grant access to applicant data. Recipients of the data may include individuals within the responsible party who are involved in the processing (HR staff, administrators). Similarly, for the purposes of conducting our applicant management, data may be disclosed or accessed by external service providers in the context of a contractual relationship with us.
Further Processing Activities and Legal Bases
Furthermore, we process personal data in accordance with the following legal bases in connection with Art. 6 para. 1 GDPR, to the extent and insofar as the EU GDPR is applicable:
Processing of personal data with the consent of the data subject.
Processing of personal data to fulfill a contract with the data subject and to carry out pre-contractual measures.
Processing of personal data to fulfill a legal obligation to which we are subject under applicable EU law or the law of a country where the GDPR is wholly or partially applicable.
Processing of personal data to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person.
Processing of personal data to safeguard our legitimate interests or those of third parties, provided that the fundamental freedoms and rights and interests of the data subject do not outweigh. Legitimate interests include, in particular, our business interest in being able to provide our website, information security, enforcing our own legal claims, and complying with Swiss law.
We process personal data for the duration necessary for the respective purpose or purposes. In the case of longer retention obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we restrict processing accordingly.
Use of SSL Encryption
For reasons of security and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as inquiries sent to us as the site operator, this website uses SSL encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the change in the address line of the browser from "http://" to "https://" and by the padlock symbol in your browser's address bar. When SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Server Log Files
The provider of this website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files that your browser automatically transmits to us.
• Browser type and browser version
• Operating system used
• Referrer URL
• Hostname of the accessing computer
• Time of the server request
These data cannot be attributed to specific individuals. A merging of this data with other data sources is not carried out. We reserve the right to subsequently check this data if we become aware of specific indications of unlawful use.
Rights of the Data Subject
You have the right to free information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipient, and the purpose of data processing at any time. If we process your personal data with your consent, you can revoke this consent at any time for the future. Such a revocation affects the permissibility of processing your personal data after you have given it to us. For this and for further questions regarding personal data, you can contact us at any time using the contact information provided in the imprint.
You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority for data protection, in Switzerland with the Federal Data Protection and Public Access Commissioner (FDPIC).
Social Media Plugins
This website includes features of the "YouTube" service. "YouTube" is owned by Google Ireland Limited, a company registered and operated under Irish law, with its registered office at Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, which operates the services in the European Economic Area and Switzerland.
When you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This informs the YouTube server about which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you allow YouTube to associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

When you visit one of our pages with a LinkedIn plugin, a connection to LinkedIn's servers is established. This informs LinkedIn about which of our pages you have visited. By doing so, LinkedIn is made aware of your visit to our website. If you click the LinkedIn "Recommend" button while logged into your LinkedIn account, you can link content from our website to your LinkedIn profile. This allows LinkedIn to associate your visit to our pages with your LinkedIn user account.
You can object to advertising here: www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads. Regarding the data collected for "Page Insights" when visiting our page, we are jointly responsible with Meta Platforms Inc. (Meta Platforms Ireland Limited). Page Insights generates statistics on what visitors do on our page (comment on posts, share content, etc.).
This is described at www.facebook.com/legal/terms/information_about_page_insights_data. It helps us understand how our page is used and how we can improve it. We only receive anonymous, aggregated data. Our responsibilities regarding data protection are regulated according to the information at www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum.

Data Transfer and Data Transmission Abroad
The recipients of data are not only located in Switzerland. This especially concerns service providers who themselves or through their subcontractors may process personal data abroad. We can also transmit data to authorities and other individuals abroad if we are legally obligated to do so or, for example, as part of a company sale or a court proceeding. This applies to states in the EU or EEA, and potentially other countries worldwide. Not all states have adequate data protection measures. We mitigate the lower level of protection through appropriate contracts, especially using standard contract clauses approved by the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Public Information Commissioner of the European Commission. In certain cases, we may transmit data in accordance with data protection requirements even without such contracts, for example, if you have consented to the disclosure or if the disclosure is necessary for contract execution, for the establishment, exercise, or enforcement of legal claims, or for overriding public interests.
