In this policy, the term "personal data" refers to data that relates to an individual and identifies this person either directly or indirectly (in conjunction with other information that may be likely to come into the possession of PRODYNA), such as your name, email address or telephone number. Collection of personal data
In general, you can access PRODYNA's website without providing any personal information. Your browser transmits information to our server which are technically necessary for display our website and to ensure stability and security. These are IP address, date and time of the request, time zone difference to GMT, content of requests, access status / http status code, amount of data transferred, webpage that the request comes from, browser, operating system and its interface and language and version of the browser software.
To access some areas of our website, for example to apply for a position, we may need to obtain personal data from you. The entering of personal data in such cases is voluntary, and you are explicitly requested to provide such personal data and informed about the intended use of such personal data. If you do not provide us with the required personal data, you may won’t be able to use some functions offered by our website. The typical reasons for us collecting personal data are listed below, along with a brief description of how your personal data is treated in each case.
Particularly sensitive personal data
- Communication with you. We will respond to any comments and requests that you submit to us through our website, such as online enquiries, comments, or registration to attend a conference. This may involve calling you on the telephone or sending an email to you.
- Creating aggregated statistics regarding the use of our website.
- Your personal data will be stored accordingly on our systems.
- Training and further education. Your personal data will be used for certification exams and certificates of participation for the purpose of legitimizing and issuing your training certificate. PRODYNA or external trainer use lists of participants with personal data for internal organization, e.g. individual preparation of participants or sending of training material. Participation in feedback questionnaires regarding training quality is voluntary and anonymous.

By voluntarily providing us with particularly sensitive personal data (such as by submitting your CV or applying for a job online), you expressly consent to the use of your personal data as described in this policy. Disclosure of your personal data
PRODYNA is a global organisation. We have various legal entities (e.g. national companies) and partners in Switzerland, in certain EU Member States as well as in other European countries. Our internal processes and infrastructures are therefore international in their nature and scope.
Accordingly, you should be aware that we may share your personal data with third parties, for the purpose of processing it on our behalf. We require that third parties treat the personal data they receive in accordance with PRODYNA's Data Privacy and Security Policies.
Your personal data may therefore also be subject to cross-border disclosure. Cross-border disclosure of your personal data will be conducted only (i) to countries with equivalent data protection standards, or (ii) on the basis of officially recognized data protection agreements, or (iii) on the basis of officially recogniz ed standard data protection clauses.
