Data protection statement

Data protection

Repower respects your privacy. For this reason we run our website in accordance with both Switzerland’s and the EU’s data protection laws. By accessing Repower’s website you declare that you are in agreement with the following information on data protection.

When you register or order our services we use your data to respond to your enquiry or process your application or order. In this connection (and in particular for billing purposes) your data may also be forwarded to third parties; these third parties, however, are also legally and contractually obligated to process your data with care and guarantee data security. Third parties are authorised to process your data only as Repower itself is authorised to do.

Repower uses the personal data gathered in connection with the completion of the contract (in particular your first and last name, email address, date of birth and phone number) in accordance with the applicable data protection rules. Sensitive personal data as defined in Swiss data protection law are not gathered. Repower takes the necessary steps to safeguard the customer’s personal data from loss, theft and abuse. Repower gathers customer data for the purposes of allowing customers access to products and services and conducting contractual relations.

Repower may gather, process and use data provided by customers for its own marketing purposes (for example invitations to events or sending newsletters).

Potential customers authorise Repower to obtain information on their creditworthiness (i.e. for a credit check). If a potential customer has an entry in the debt enforcement register or a similarly negative entry in another database, Repower is entitled to refuse the potential customer’s order.

Customers are entitled to demand information on personal data or to revoke consent to the processing of personal data.

In addition to this, when you access the Repower website the following data are stored in log files: the IP address, the date and time, the browser enquiry, and general information transmitted about the operating system and/or browser used. These usage data serve as the basis for anonymous statistical analysis to enable us to recognise trends that will help us improve the products and services we offer.

Use of analytics tools

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”), and it uses this web analytics service to collect and store data which are used to create user profiles on the basis of pseudonyms. The user profiles created are used to analyse user behaviour to improve the offering presented on this website and make it more user-friendly. Google Analytics uses cookies, small text files that are stored on your computer and enable your use of our website to be analysed. The information the cookie generates on your use of our website will usually be transferred to a Google server in the United States and stored there. If, however, IP anonymisation is activated on our website – on our websites we have added the “_anonymizedIP ();” code to Google Analytics – your IP address will first be shortened by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other countries which are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On our instructions Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our website to put together reports on website activity and provide us in our capacity as the operator of our website with other services in connection with the use of our website and the internet. The IP address sent from your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be amalgamated with other data by Google. User profiles which use a pseudonym will also not be amalgamated with personal data on the user without the express consent of the user. You can set your browser software to prevent cookies from being saved. However, we must point out that if you do so you might not be able to make full use of all the features of our website. You can also prevent capture of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
