Privacy policy

In general

Site users are advised that, through the use of the website, user data are transported across a network that is accessible to anyone. The data can accordingly be transported across borders, even if Coople and the users reside only in the Switzerland. There is therefore the risk that data will be intercepted and viewed by third parties. Communication between Coople and the users, which takes place via email, SMS, etc., is not encrypted. There is the danger of virus and hacker attacks. Coople therefore recommends that you always use the latest browser versions and constantly updated anti-virus programmes. You should never open and read emails and their attachments from unknown senders.

Protection of personal data

Coople collects no personal data on non-registered users. This means that after registration all data concerning a user are only used insofar as they are necessary for the hiring of employees by employers (so called matching) and/or for the invoicing of Coople with respect to employees, client companies and agents. Each employee expressly agrees that his data (including rating) are disclosed to the employees of Coople or contracted agents – if necessary. The statistical data, which Coople is obliged to collect by law (art. 18 para 2 AVG), is only collected in anonymised form.

Protection of the internal data transfer

Within Coople personal data are transmitted and stored in a protected format. Coople takes all appropriate steps to prevent personal data being viewed by unauthorised third parties. We reserve the right to disclose data as a result of statutory regulations.

Data collection for statistical purposes

Coople collects statistical data for the constant optimisation of the service. For example, data are collected on the number of hours worked per profession and industry, about the relationship between of the number of working hours in relation to the number of employees and the number of jobs not carried out due to lack of employees. The data collected by Coople do not allow any conclusions to be drawn with regard to the individual user and are therefore not subject to the privacy policy.
