Analysis of websites by Careerplus

When you visit our websites, our web server only saves the IP address, the date, the time and the page visited. The IP address of your computer will be anonymised. We only evaluate this data in order to optimise the websites and, if necessary, to ward off attacks on our web server.

For better user guidance, we also use our own cookies. These are cryptic numbers used to control the connection to our websites during the session. You can set your browser to ensure that you are informed about the placement of cookies. This makes usage transparent for you.

Use of Google Analytics (anonymizeIp)

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses  “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google beforehand within member states of the European Union or in other states which are signatories to the Treaty on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to one of the Google servers in the United States and be shortened there. Google is instructed by the operator of this website to use this information for the purposes of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing the website operator with services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted from your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data. You may prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser software; however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. In addition, you may prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the available Browser plugins at the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de). You can find further information about it here at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de or at http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html (general information about Google Analytics and data protection). Please be advised that on this website, Google Analytics has been extended by the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” in order to guarantee the anonymised collection of IP addresses (IP masking). You can prevent your data being collected by Google Analytics by clicking the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set which prevents your data from being collected on future visits to this website.

Use of social plugins

Our website uses social plugins (“plugins”) for the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins are indicated by the Facebook logo with the additional wording “Social Plugin for Facebook” or “Facebook Social Plugin”. An overview of Facebook plugins and their appearances can be found here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/

If you call up a page on our website containing this plugin, your browser will be connected directly to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin will be transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and will be integrated into the page. This link informs Facebook that your browser has called up the relevant page on our website, even if you do not possess a Facebook profile or are currently not logged into Facebook. This information (including your IP address) will be transmitted directly from your browser to one of the Google servers in the United States and will be saved there.

If you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to our website directly to your Facebook profile. If you interact with the plugins, for example if you click the “Like” button or leave a comment, this information is also transmitted directly to one of Facebook servers and is stored there. The information is also published on your Facebook profile and is visible to your Facebook friends.

Please refer to the privacy policy in Facebook to find out about the purpose and scope of data collection and further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as your rights and setting options in order to safeguard your privacy: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php
If you do not want Facebook to assign data collected via our website directly to your Facebook profile, you have to log out from Facebook. You can also completely block the downloading of Facebook plugins by using add-ons for your browser, for example using the “Facebook Blocker” (http://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker/) or the script blocker “NoScript” (http://noscript.net/).

Your personal details

Furthermore, your personal data will only be saved if you provide it yourself, for instance as part of a request on the contact form (also includes subscription to newsletters, subscription to job alerts, download of documents, signing up for events) or by e-mail. If you transmit your data via the contact form, we will use this data to contact you about your request. We will always contact you by e-mail and by phone. Furthermore, we will use your postal address to keep you informed about interesting offers and news from Careerplus. With your express permission, we will also use your e-mail address for marketing and publicity purposes. If you no longer wish to receive any information and/or publicity from us, you can inform us at any time that you object to your data being used, for example by e-mailing us at marketing@careerplus.ch.

Online applications

For speed and convenience, you can also use our online application tool. Needless to say, any details which you provide on the online application form will only be used for processing your application. We use an encryption process for the online transmission of your application data, protecting your details against unauthorised access (see below). Please be advised that applications which are sent to us by e-mail are transmitted in unencrypted form. Therefore, we recommend you to use the online application tool.

Data security

We take appropriate measures to implement the protection of your data both technically and organisationally. Our employees have a duty to comply with data protection, the service providers engaged by us to process the data are carefully selected, and they are also obliged to abide by data protection. Some areas of the website in which sensitive data, for example, is transmitted on forms is also encrypted by us using SSL in order to protect your data against unauthorised access. You can generally recognise encrypted websites by a lock icon on your browser. Please note that unencrypted data transmission (by e-mail or using other web forms) may be read by unauthorised parties beyond our control. Therefore, if you wish to transmit sensitive data to us without encryption, we recommend that you use other means of transmission.
