beyond software

Pri­va­cy Policy

Data pro­tec­tion and data secu­ri­ty are impor­tant to beyond software Felix Stadel­mann (“beyond software”, “we”, “us”). beyond software process­es your per­son­al data respon­si­bly and in com­pli­ance with legal oblig­a­tions. In this Pri­va­cy Pol­i­cy, we describe how we col­lect and process your per­son­al data when you vis­it our web­sites or (“Web­sites”), use our appli­ca­tion “Beyond” or use our services.

Per­son­al data that we col­lect and process in order to pro­vide our websites

You can vis­it our web­sites and learn about our ser­vices with­out telling us who you are. How­ev­er, as with any con­nec­tion to a web serv­er, our host­ing provider’s serv­er auto­mat­i­cal­ly logs and stores cer­tain tech­ni­cal data.

This infor­ma­tion includes the IP address and oper­at­ing sys­tem of your device, the date and time of use, and the type of brows­er you use to access our web­sites. To the extent that we process per­son­al data in this process, we do so based on our inter­est in mak­ing the Web­sites avail­able and pro­vid­ing you with the best pos­si­ble user experience.

Per­son­al data that we col­lect and process for the pro­vi­sion of services

If you enquire about our offers and ser­vices by e‑mail or tele­phone, we col­lect your con­tact details and oth­er per­son­al data rel­e­vant to the con­tract. We col­lect and process this per­son­al data for the pur­pos­es of pro­vid­ing ser­vices and infor­ma­tion about our services.

To answer your inquiries, we reg­u­lar­ly need your first name, last name, e‑mail address and tele­phone num­ber. For the con­clu­sion and pro­cess­ing of con­tracts con­cern­ing the use of charge­able ser­vices (pro­vi­sion of our appli­ca­tion and ser­vices asso­ci­at­ed with the use of the appli­ca­tion), we reg­u­lar­ly col­lect and process your billing data and pay­ment data (amount of the trans­ac­tion and con­fir­ma­tion of payment).

We process con­tact and pay­ment infor­ma­tion to enter into and ful­fill a con­tract with you or your orga­ni­za­tion or to com­mu­ni­cate with you about our offers and ser­vices. In addi­tion, we process this per­son­al data based on our inter­est in answer­ing your inquiries in the best pos­si­ble way. Based on our inter­est in inform­ing you about new devel­op­ments as well as ser­vices and offers of beyond software, we will send you cor­re­spond­ing com­mer­cial infor­ma­tion if you are inter­est­ed (e.g. via newslet­ter). How­ev­er, you have the option to opt out of receiv­ing such infor­ma­tion at any time.

Per­son­al data that we store and make avail­able when you use our application

We col­lect and process (per­son­al) data on your behalf or on behalf of your orga­ni­za­tion, which you store your­self when you use our appli­ca­tion. This pro­cess­ing con­sists of the stor­age, pro­vi­sion, trans­mis­sion and dele­tion of data in accor­dance with our con­trac­tu­al agree­ments with you or your organisation.

In pro­vid­ing the Appli­ca­tion, we process, on the one hand, the per­son­al data and oth­er data that you (or the respec­tive autho­rized users with­in your orga­ni­za­tion) store and process through the appli­ca­tion. This includes in par­tic­u­lar con­tact, billing and course par­tic­i­pa­tion data of your cus­tomers or mem­bers. On the oth­er hand, in pro­vid­ing the appli­ca­tion, we col­lect per­son­al data relat­ing to indi­vid­u­als with­in your orga­ni­za­tion to whom you grant access to the appli­ca­tion. This includes, in par­tic­u­lar, the names of autho­rized users (except in the case of gener­ic user names) and per­son­al data that is usu­al­ly col­lect­ed when web­sites and appli­ca­tions are called up or exe­cut­ed and used (log data, e.g. the IP address and the oper­at­ing sys­tem of the user’s device as well as the date and access time of the browser).

Inso­far as we process per­son­al data in the process, we do so in accor­dance with our con­trac­tu­al oblig­a­tions to you as an order proces­sor. You remain respon­si­ble for the law­ful­ness of the pro­cess­ing of the per­son­al data and oth­er data stored by you, includ­ing the law­ful­ness of com­mis­sioned and sub­con­tract­ed processing.

Host­ing of the application

We have the web­sites and the appli­ca­tion stored and pro­vid­ed by a host­ing provider in Switzer­land. The data entered and processed by you when using the appli­ca­tion is stored and processed by the host­ing provider as a com­mis­sioned or sub­con­tract­ed proces­sor and exclu­sive­ly in Switzer­land. He has under­tak­en to com­ply with appro­pri­ate data pro­tec­tion and data secu­ri­ty guarantees.

How and for what we use cookies

We use cook­ies on the web­sites. Cook­ies are text files that are down­loaded to your com­put­er or mobile device when you vis­it a web­site or use an appli­ca­tion. The cook­ies used on the web­sites are nec­es­sary to enable us to pro­vide you with the use of cer­tain fea­tures and to pro­vide you with the best pos­si­ble user experience.

Social media plu­g­ins; pres­ence on social media

We use social media plu­g­ins from Face­book Inc. on our web­sites. (“Face­book”) to rec­om­mend our arti­cles pub­lished on Face­book and to allow you to share or like the arti­cles. By inte­grat­ing the plu­g­ins, Face­book receives the infor­ma­tion that you have accessed the cor­re­spond­ing page of one of our web­sites. If you are logged into Face­book, Face­book can assign the vis­it to your Face­book account. If you inter­act with the social media plu­g­ins (e.g. with the “Like” but­ton), the cor­re­spond­ing infor­ma­tion is trans­mit­ted from your brows­er direct­ly to Face­book and stored there.

In addi­tion, we refer to our pres­ence (com­pa­ny pages) on Face­book and LinkedIn on our web­sites. For the pur­pose and scope of the data col­lec­tion and the fur­ther pro­cess­ing and use of the data by the social net­works, as well as your rights and set­ting options in this regard, please refer to the data pro­tec­tion infor­ma­tion of the social networks.

Face­book uses cook­ies to col­lect infor­ma­tion such as the num­ber of peo­ple or demo­graph­ics of users who view or com­ment on posts on our Face­book com­pa­ny page. We receive ana­lyt­ics from Face­book that con­tain only aggre­gat­ed or oth­er­wise suf­fi­cient­ly anonymized data. We use this to opti­mise our con­tent and ser­vices offered on the Face­book com­pa­ny page. Face­book, as the provider of the ana­lyt­ics ser­vices, is pri­mar­i­ly respon­si­ble for the col­lec­tion and pro­cess­ing of per­son­al data in con­nec­tion with the Face­book ana­lyt­ics ser­vices. Only Face­book can asso­ciate the infor­ma­tion with a spe­cif­ic Face­book account hold­er. There­fore, if you have ques­tions about the oper­a­tion of the ana­lyt­ics ser­vices or wish to exer­cise your data sub­ject rights under applic­a­ble data pro­tec­tion laws, please direct your inquiry to Facebook.

How we process and pro­tect your per­son­al data; how long we keep it for

We col­lect and process your per­son­al data in a trust­wor­thy and respon­si­ble man­ner, only for the pur­pos­es described in this pri­va­cy pol­i­cy and in accor­dance with applic­a­ble data pro­tec­tion laws. We only store your per­son­al data for as long and to the extent that this is nec­es­sary for the pur­pos­es described or for legal reasons.

In the inter­est of con­fi­den­tial­i­ty, integri­ty and con­trac­tu­al avail­abil­i­ty of per­son­al data, we take appro­pri­ate tech­ni­cal and orga­ni­za­tion­al mea­sures. In par­tic­u­lar, in accor­dance with our risk assess­ment, we imple­ment admis­sion con­trols, access con­trols as well as pro­ce­dures to reg­u­lar­ly review, assess and eval­u­ate the effec­tive­ness of the measures.

We store per­son­al data only to the extent and for as long as nec­es­sary to ful­fil the pur­pos­es for which the per­son­al data was col­lect­ed, we have a legit­i­mate inter­est in stor­ing it or we are legal­ly oblig­ed to do so.

Your rights in rela­tion to your per­son­al data

You have the right to obtain infor­ma­tion about the per­son­al data we process about you. You have a right to rec­ti­fy your per­son­al data. You also have the right to have your per­son­al data delet­ed and the right to object to the pro­cess­ing of per­son­al data. Copies of the data that you have saved when using the appli­ca­tion can be made at any time using the cor­re­spond­ing func­tions in the appli­ca­tion itself.

Please note that excep­tions apply to these rights. In par­tic­u­lar, we may need to process and store your per­son­al data in order to ful­fil a con­tract with you or your organ­i­sa­tion, to pro­tect our own legit­i­mate inter­ests such as the asser­tion, exer­cise or defence of legal claims, or to com­ply with legal oblig­a­tions. As far as legal­ly per­mis­si­ble, we can there­fore also refuse your data pro­tec­tion-relat­ed requests, e.g. requests for infor­ma­tion and dele­tion, or only com­ply with them to a lim­it­ed extent. How­ev­er, you have the right to file a com­plaint with a com­pe­tent super­vi­so­ry authority.

If you wish to exer­cise your data pro­tec­tion rights as a cus­tomer (e.g. as a par­tic­i­pant in a dance course) of one of our cus­tomers, please do so direct­ly towards the cus­tomer (e.g. towards your dance school). Cus­tomers who use our appli­ca­tion are respon­si­ble for the data pro­cess­ing car­ried out via the appli­ca­tion. We are only order proces­sors in this respect.
