Information we collect
You are able to browse our Websites without providing us with your personal information. We do not collect personal information when you browse, such as your email address. However, when you access our Websites you may be requested to provide us with certain information, including information about your computer’s browser type, operating system and IP address, as well as your access date and time and your referring and exiting URLs. In this situation, if you choose to withhold any information requested by us, it may not be possible for you to gain access to certain parts of the Websites and to experience its benefits.
During your registration and consequent log in and use of certain services of our Websites we may collect, in addition to the information above-mentioned, certain personally identifiable data about you, such first and last name, E-Mail address, company name, address and country of residence, telephone number, fax number. While using our services through our E-shop we may also collect the following data: Credit Card type, Credit Card owner, Credit Card number, Credit Card expiration and billing address. This information is required to identify you and provide you with support, service, mailings, sales and marketing information, and meet certain of our contractual obligations.
What we do with the information we gather
We require this information to understand your needs and provide you with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons:
administer our relationship with you, including certain contractual obligations, our business and our third-party providers;

We may periodically send promotional emails about new products, special offers or other information which we think you may find interesting using the email address which you have provided. You may opt-out of receiving promotional communications.
From time to time, we may also use your information to contact you for market research purposes. We may contact you by email, phone, fax or mail. We may use the information to customise the Websites according to your interests. We will not rent or sell your personal identifiable information to third parties.
We process personal information about you on the basis that it is:
necessary for the performance of our contractual relationship: where we have a contract with you, we will process your personal information in order to fulfil that contract (i.e., to provide you with services);
in our or a third parties’ legitimate interests;
where you give us your consent: we only ask for your consent in relation to specific uses of personal information where we need to and, if we need it, we will collect it separately and make it clear that we are asking for consent;
for compliance with a legal obligation.
We may disclose information we have about you (i) if we are required to do so by law or pursuant to legal process, (ii) in response to a request from law enforcement authorities or other government officials, including to meet national security requirements, or (iii) when we believe disclosure is reasonably necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss in connection with an investigation of suspected or illegal activity.
Storage and Security
Your information may be stored and processed in the United Stated, Europe or any other country in which Proceq or its service providers maintain facilities. Nevertheless, please note that we will not transfer information to any country and jurisdiction that does not have the same data protection laws as Switzerland.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. However, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to the Websites or to us.
Do Not Track Signals
Proceq does not track its users over time or across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals.
A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about webpage traffic and improve our Websites in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with better Websites by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the Websites.
The Websites also uses the remarketing function “Custom Audiences” of Facebook Inc. (Facebook). This allows users of the Websites to see interest-based advertisements (Facebook ads) when visiting the social network Facebook or other websites that also use this tool.
Your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Facebook server once you are visiting our Websites. We have no influence on the extent and further use of the data collected by Facebook through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our level of knowledge: by integrating Facebook Custom Audiences, Facebook receives the information that you have called up the corresponding Websites of our Internet presence, or that you have clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Facebook service, Facebook can associate your visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Facebook or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider may obtain and store your IP address and other identifying information.
The “Facebook Custom Audiences” function can be deactivated in the Cookie Settings [Link] and for logged in users at https://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=ads#_
Google Tag Manager
The Websites uses the Google Tag Manager. This service allows website tags to be managed through an interface. The Google Tool Manager only implements tags. This means that no cookies are used and no personal data is collected. The Google Tool Manager triggers other tags, which in turn collect data if necessary. However, the Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at domain or cookie level, it remains valid for all tracking tags if they are implemented with the Google Tag Manager.
We use Lead Forensics’ IP Tracking technology to identify businesses visiting our websites and the pages they visit. Lead Forensics cannot identify the individual visiting the websites, only the company, and provide us with information readily available in the public domain, including the visiting company’s contact information. More information can be found on http://www.leadforensics.com.
Proceq Live Website & Apps
In addition to the above mentioned tools, our Proceq Live website & apps utilize the following additional services which allow us to provide you with better and suitable services:
Google Analytics is also used to measure your engagement with Proceq’s mobile apps. This may include number of users, location and activities, types of mobile devices and iOS versions;
Our mobile apps use Firebase (firebase.google.com), a mobile app analytics service provided by Google. Firebase provides us insight on app usage and the users’ engagement. Data we collect may include information about mobile devices (model, OS version, location), user activities in the app such as data synchronization, sharing and exports, which screens in the apps are used, QR code scanning, etc;
Fabric (fabric.io) is another service we use to get insight information about mobile app usage and user engagement, as well as crash reports. Fabric is also owned by Google;
We use the commercial library from Scandit (www.scandit.com) in our mobile apps to scan various types of barcodes. Since the library is commercial, Proceq and Scandit do track the number of barcode scanning in order to determine the remuneration of the library usage.
Proceq may internally monitor certain user activities on our Live cloud and web services. Data we collect may include user profile creation and updates made thereof, user authentication (log in and log out), data synchronization, contract usage, data exports and sharing.
