Creaholic processes and collects the personal data necessary for its work, either for marketing purposes, or during the preparatory phase of the contract, during its execution and afterwards. If necessary, and in particular because of its legal obligations, this includes postal and e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, correspondences, data relating to services ordered and provided, and any disputes, etc.

We also collect data to improve and optimise the use of our site (see also section 4 below).

How do we collect your data?

Some data is collected when you provide it to us. This may include, for example, data you send us by e-mail or information provided during an exchange.

Other data is collected automatically by our computer systems when you visit our website. This data is mainly technical data such as the browser and operating system you use or the time you access the page. This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter our website. Some of the data is collected to ensure that the website is provided without error. Other data may be used to analyse user behaviour.

Data storage

Generally speaking, our data is stored on Microsoft SharePoint servers in Switzerland and on Hubspot servers in Germany. We and our partners are implementing various appropriate organisational and technical measures to prevent any undue access to your data.

When you visit our website, the data relating to this visit is tracked using various tools, in particular those provided by Google (see below).

How long is data kept

Personal data will be deleted as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to be applicable, at the latest after 10 years, subject to legal provisions to the contrary.

Your rights

You always have the right to request, free of charge, information about your stored data, its origin, its recipients and the purpose for which it was collected. You also have the right to request that your data be corrected and/or deleted. You can contact us at any time if you have any further questions on the subject of confidentiality and data protection (cf. articles 25 ff DPA). You may also, of course, submit a request to the competent authorities.

When you visit our website, statistical analyses may be carried out on your browsing behaviour. This is done mainly using cookies and analysis tools. The analysis of your browsing behaviour is generally anonymous, i.e. we cannot identify you from this data. You may object to this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools (see section 4 below).

Rights of the individuals concerned

You may ask us at any time whether your personal data is being processed, in accordance with Article 25 of the DPA.

You have the right to ask us to provide you with your personal data in a commonly used electronic format.

You may request that inaccurate data be corrected, that data be deleted and that it not be passed on to third parties, subject to any legal provisions to the contrary (cf. art. 32 DPA).

Right to lodge complaints with the competent authorities

In the event of a breach of data protection legislation, the data subject may lodge a complaint with the relevant criminal prosecution authorities or supervisory authorities. In Switzerland, the Public Prosecutor's Office and the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) are responsible for this.

Right to data portability

You can request to receive your data, processed based on your consent or a contract, in a standard machine-readable format, either for yourself or a third party. If you request the direct transfer of data to another controller, this will only be done to the extent that it is technically possible.

SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests you send to us as site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection in your browser's address line when it changes from "http://" to "https://" and the lock icon appears in your browser's address bar.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you send us cannot be read by third parties.

3. Data processing in foreign countries, in particular the European Union and the United States

Switzerland believes that the European Union countries ensure a sufficient standard of data protection.Generally speaking, we use appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure that your personal data is protected in the same way in Switzerland.

Some of the data we process is stored on the servers of companies based in the United States. This may result in your personal data being transmitted to the American servers of the companies concerned and being processed and disclosed there. The European Commission considers that the United States provides a level of protection for personal data equivalent to that of the European Union (adequacy decision of 10 July 2023 on the EU-US Data Privacy Framework). The US company in question, Google, is also members of the Data Privacy Framework ( We therefore ensure that your personal data is protected at all times.
