Processing Purposes and Legal Basis
Data processing is carried out in particular to analyse the Internet traffic on our Website, to improve the functionality of our Website and for advertising purposes. The processing of your data is necessary to protect our legitimate interests.
If you have given us your consent to process your personal data for specific purposes (for example, when you register to take part in a training), we will process your personal data within the scope of and based on this consent, unless we have another legal basis and do not require consent. Consent that has been given can be revoked at any time, but this has no effect on data processing that has already taken place.
Data Categories and Data Origin
We process the data that is generated when you use our Website or the data that you provide when you contact us via the contact form.
In the course of our business activities and purposes, we also disclose personal data to third parties as far as permitted. This concerns in particular the following data recipients:
- service providers of Onyx Consulting, including the companies named in this data protection statement and contractors (e.g. IT providers), and
- third parties within the framework of the fulfilment of legal obligations.
Some of these recipients are in Switzerland, but they can also be abroad. The data server is located in Germany. You must also expect in particular, we may transfer your data to all countries in which Onyx Consulting offers training courses, as well as to other countries in Europe and the USA where the service providers we use are located. If we transfer data to a country without adequate legal data protection, we will ensure an adequate level of protection as required by law by means of appropriate contracts or rely on the legal exceptions of consent, the execution of contracts, the establishment, exercise or enforcement of legal claims, overriding public interests, the published personal data or because it is necessary to protect the integrity of the persons concerned.
We do not use "cookies" or similar technologies on our Website that can identify your browser or device.
Duration of data storage
Unless otherwise stated, we store usage data or other personal data for as long as we deem it necessary or appropriate to comply with applicable laws or for as long as we deem it necessary for the purposes for which it is processed. We delete your data as soon as they are no longer needed and in any case after the legally prescribed maximum retention period has expired.
We maintain up-to-date technical measures to ensure data security, in particular to protect your personal data from risks during data transmission and from third parties gaining knowledge of them. These are adapted to the current state of the art.
Rights of the data subject
They are entitled to the following rights if the relevant legal requirements are met:
Right to information
Restriction of processing
Furthermore, you have the right to object at any time to the processing based on your consent or our legitimate interests.
Please note, however, that we reserve the right to assert the restrictions provided for by law, for example if we are obliged to store or process certain data, if we have an overriding interest in doing so (insofar as we are entitled to invoke this) or if we need them for the assertion of claims.
The exercise of such rights usually requires that you clearly prove your identity (e.g. by means of a copy of your identity card, where your identity is otherwise not clear or cannot be verified). To assert your rights, you can contact us at the address given above.
Moreover, every data subject has the right to pursue his or her claims through the courts or to lodge a complaint with the competent data protection authority. The competent data protection authority in Switzerland is the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (
