NLP GmbH – Last updated: 15 March 2019


NLP GmbH (NLP) takes the protection of your data seriously, and we would like to make sure that you feel safe when using our online platforms. In the following, we will explain which data we collect and how we use them.

Any personal data you supply to NLP when using our online platforms are processed in accordance with the Swiss Data Protection Act (DSG) and other legal provisions. The term “online platforms” refers to NLP’s offerings on the Internet.

To make this Data Privacy Statement easier to read and understand:

Controller: Controller of a data file

Data processing by third parties: Processor

NLP is committed to the following basic principles:

I. Transparency: Data privacy is important for us. We inform our users of the purpose of data processing. We use Google Analytics and other analytics platforms to collect data. We do not sell your data to any third party providers.

II. Security: Data security is essential for us. We take all the necessary technical and organizational measures.

Responsible Authority

The responsible authority (controller) is NLP GmbH, Huttensteig 10, CH-8006 Zürich.


NLP believes that it is important that its users know which of their personal details are processed, for what purpose, and when.

NLP reserves the right to change this Data Privacy Statement from time to time. We recommend to you to read this Data Privacy Statement regularly.

What are personal data?

Personal data are the details of an identified or identifiable natural person, e.g. name, address, telephone number, date of birth or e-mail address. We do not collect them. As mentioned before, through this Website we just receive information from Google Analytics and other regular analytics tools that provide private information about users as much as they would like to, thus we are not liable for the information they collect.

As a rule, you can use our online platforms without providing any personal data. To use certain online platforms, you may be required to enter personal data, e.g. in order to subscribe to a newsletter, post a comment or register for an event.

Personal data are therefore not generally processed, but only under certain circumstances and for specific purposes.

When are personal data processed for NLP’s online platforms?

In order to provide the NLP platforms, NLP or third parties process personal data in the context of:

  1. Websites: Personal data are processed via the logfiles, cookies, analysis tools, contact forms and plug-ins of social media and other providers
  2. User-generated content: Personal data are captured via forums, chats, and blogs and processed in the form of user-generated content.
  3. Newsletters: Personal data are processed on the basis of your consent when you subscribe to the newsletter.
  4. Contact forms: Personal data are processed via contact forms when you submit suggestions and questions about our service.
  5. Registrations:Personal data are processed via contact forms or e-mail when you take part in an event or training.

For what purposes are personal data processed?

  • To make the online platforms available to users
  • To optimize our online availability (e.g. market research and audience measurement)
  • To send out e-mail newsletters
  • To run events and training courses

Based on which legal foundations does NLP process personal data?

If we obtain your consent to process your personal data, this serves as the legal basis. This is the case with newsletters, comment posts or events, for example.

We also process your personal data on the basis of our legitimate interest. This includes processing data for the purpose of providing and optimizing our online platforms.

When personal data are processed under a legal obligation, this obligation serves as the legal basis. This may be the case, for example, when personal data are passed on to a third party, and for reasons of obligatory storage duration or retention periods.

Disclosure of personal data to third parties

Do we pass personal data on to third parties?

We only disclose your personal data to third parties if you have given your consent or if there is a legitimate interest on our part.

Furthermore, we may transmit data to third parties if we are obliged to do so on the basis of legal provisions or an enforceable administrative or judicial order.

Are any third parties involved in the processing of data?


For how long does NLP store the personal data?

We store your data as long as our analytics tools save them.

What rights do you have?

  1. Right to inform: Users have the right to demand from the controller confirmation of the personal data that are processed and whether they are transmitted to a third-party country.
  2. Right to correction: Users have the right to demand that the controller correct any incorrect or incomplete personal data that pertain to them.
  3. Right to deletion: Users have the right to demand that the controller immediately delete any personal data pertaining to them if they are no longer required for the purposes for which they were captured or processed, and no other legal provisions are opposed to their deletion.
  4. Right to limited processing: Users have the right to demand that the controller limits the processing of their data.
  5. Right to revoke consent: Users have the right to revoke their consent to the processing of their respective personal data for one or more specific purposes at any time if the processing is based on their express consent. When you revoke your consent, the legality of the processing that was done until then is not affected as this was based on the consent you had given before revoking it.
  6. Right to object: Users have the right to object to the processing of their respective personal data at any time, if the processing is done on the basis of the legitimate interest of the controller or a third party for the purpose of direct marketing, for example.

Rights to content and liability 

Rights to content

Property of NLP: The contents of NLP’s internet platforms are protected by copyright. The contents may not be modified, transmitted, distributed, stored, copied or republished without the NLP’s consent.

Usage rights to NLP content: For any software, folders, data and content of the NLP online offerings that are expressly made available for download, NLP grants to the user a simple, non-exclusive and non-transferrable license that is limited to a one-off download and storage of the data. All other rights remain with NLP. In particular, the content may not be sold or used for any commercial purpose.

User-generated content: If the user uploads content to the user-generated content area using the interactive platforms, this issues NLP with an unlimited right, in terms of time, location and material, to use the uploaded content. The content may also be embedded or played as a link on a third-party page or be uploaded to a third-party website (e.g. Twitter or Facebook) for playback. Even if the content is not published, the user is in agreement with such publication.

The user guarantees that he or she is fully entitled to upload the content. In this regard, the user releases NLP from any recourse to the law, litigation, claim for damages or other claims and demands that a third party could initiate and assert with regard to the upload of their data, video, audio or images.


The user releases NLP from any claims that a third party could assert on the use of user-generated content. All costs, especially those based on legal claims for damages made against NLP, shall be borne by the user.


NLP is not liable – as far as the law permits – for data or information that is distributed on the NLP Internet platforms, nor for any damages that may arise on their basis. This applies to all types of claims, in particular claims as a result of an error, delay, interrupted transmission, infrastructure failure, incorrect content, loss or deletion of data, viruses or in any other way when using the NLP Internet platforms.

The NLP website may contain links to third-party websites for information purposes. In this case, NLP takes no responsibility for the content, correctness, legality or functionality of the third-party websites to which links or tools on the NLP Internet platforms refer to. Users visit websites via links at their own risk.

NLP does not guarantee continuous access to its Internet platforms or perfect access quality. In particular, it cannot rule out a failure of its communication networks and gateways. NLP accepts no liability for ensuring that its Internet platforms function without interruption or error or that any errors that occur will be corrected.

Data Privacy Glossary

Last updated: 29 March 2019L

Web analytics tools

We need statistical information on the use of our online platforms in order to make them more user-friendly and to do market research.

We use the following web analytics tools for this. The browsing profiles created by these tools using analytics cookies or by evaluating the log files are not matched with the personal data. The tools either do not use users’ IP addresses at all or abbreviate them as soon as they have been collected. The suppliers of the web analytics tools only process data on our behalf, in accordance with our instructions and not for their own purposes.

You can contact the following providers if you do not want that your data is collected.

  • Google Analytics: Google Analytics is a service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). We use Google Analytics with Google’s “anonymize IP” feature. In any case, it only ever stores IP addresses in truncated form. You can opt out of having your data collected and processed by this tool by downloading the browser plug-in here (we neither do guarantee the availability of the tool nor its functions):

What are plug-ins?
Plug-ins allow us to integrate social media into the NLP online platforms for the convenience of our users. In the following, the various providers of the plug-ins are jointly referred to as the “plug-in providers”.

The functions of the plug-ins are deactivated by default to prevent any automatic disclosure of the user data to the provider. Plug-ins (by Shariff) only send the data once they have been activated, i.e. clicked by the user. Your Internet browser then sends the log files (including your IP address) directly to the plug-in provider’s server where they may be stored. The server may be located outside the EU or the EEA (e.g. in the USA).

How can you prevent plug-ins from being activated?
If you want to prevent a data exchange between your system and social media, you should log out of the social media before using NLP’s online platforms. You should also activate private mode in your browser’s data privacy settings.

It also helps to deactivate or limit cookies in your browser settings so that third parties cannot track your browsing behavior. You can also prevent the plug-ins from loading altogether by using a script blocker as an add-on in your browser.

Does NLP have any influence over the scope of the data processed by the plug-ins?
The plug-ins are independent extensions of the plug-in providers. We do not have any influence on the data processed by Plug-In providers.

For further information about the purpose and scope of data collection and the processing and use of your data by the plug-in providers, as well as your rights and configuration options to protect your data, please look up the data privacy statements of the respective providers. In the context of our online platforms, we use the social plug-ins of the following providers:

Contact forms (also for registrations)

We use contact forms to help you contact us directly and, for example, send us questions or suggestions or take part in events or training courses. The personal details we collect for this (e.g. last name, first name, address, e-mail) are used exclusively for the purposes indicated at the time.

If you have any questions about how your personal data are processed, please use the contact details in the confirmation e-mail we send in response your message or contact us.

We delete the data you send us in contact forms as soon as there is no longer a need to store them.
