Randstad (Switzerland) AG (hereafter "Randstad") reserves the right to change, expand, remove or add data and information provided on the website, as well as the Randstad Website and Accounts in part or entirely at any time and without notice. Randstad is not obligated to provide a certain offer.

Randstad does not guarantee continual, encompassing availability of the Randstad Website and job forum, which may be affected e.g. by server faults, public communication network faults, power faults or other circumstances which are not within Randstad's area of influence. Furthermore, Randstad reserves the right to impose temporary service limits due to maintenance work and development upgrades, to the extent that these are necessary for proper or improved operation.

Randstad shall make its best effort to keep the information (such as job notices) current and free of errors, and shall examine these at regular intervals.

2. Optimization of website and information services

To optimize our website and information services, we collect and store data, such as the date and time at which the website was viewed, the website from which you accessed our page, etc. This data is anonymous and does not personally identify the website user. If necessary, user profiles are created using a pseudonym. Again, there is no connection between the natural person and the pseudonym in the collected usage data. We also use cookies to collect and store the usage data (see "Use of Cookies"). We collect this data solely for statistical purposes, in order to further optimize our website and make our internet services even more appealing. The collection and storage of data takes place in an anonymous or pseudo-anonymous form and cannot be traced back to you as a natural person.

If the user does not wish data to be collected during his or her visits to our homepage or when using the account, he/she may object to the collection of user data as described under "Using Analysis Tools".

2.1. Information services (newsletters and information)

If the user has registered for Randstad's information services, their e-mail address and other personal data such as age, region, etc. will be used for the company's own advertising purposes (sending up-to-date information, newsletters, job vacancies, and so on) until the user ends their information services subscription. Randstad can use automated analysis tools to evaluate information about the usage behavior in the newsletters. This evaluation is used to deliver tailor-made content. The user can unsubscribe from the information services at any time.

In this area, Randstad also collects and stores data that is provided to Randstad by the user (registration data upon registration).

2.2. Use of cookies

Randstad uses cookies to increase convenience, in order to ensure you have a positive user experience on our website and to enable the use of certain functions. These are small text files that are stored on your computer. Most of the cookies we use are deleted from the user's hard drive after the end of the browser session (session cookies). Other cookies remain on the computer and allow Randstad to recognize the user's computer during his or her next visit (persistent or permanent cookies) and thereby provide the user with personalized content.

The user can of course also view Randstad's websites without cookies. If the user does not want Randstad to recognize his or her computer in the future, the user can prevent cookies from being saved on their hard drive by selecting 'Block cookies' in the browser's preferences. The user can refer to the instructions of the browser manufacturer for further details.

The user is cautioned that disabling this feature may result in functional limitations of Randstad's services.

2.3. Use of analysis tools

The use of our services is measured and evaluated using various technical tools. We collect this data anonymously and for purely statistical purposes to enable us to further optimize our website and information services and make them even more appealing. The applicable data protection regulations are adhered to at all times.

An overview of the Facebook plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plug-ins/. When you visit our website, the plug-in establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. Facebook is then informed that you have visited our website with your IP address. If you click on the Facebook "Like button" while you are logged into your Facebook account, you can link the content of our website to your Facebook profile. Facebook will then be able to link your visit to our website to your user account.

When you visit a page of our website that contains a social plug-in, your browser makes a direct connection to the Twitter server. The content of the plug-in is then transmitted directly to your browser by Twitter and is integrated into the website. By integrating the plug-in, Twitter receives a notification that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Twitter profile or are not logged in to Twitter. This information (including your IP address) is transferred from your browser directly to a Twitter server in the USA and is stored there. If you are logged in to Twitter, Twitter can immediately link your visit to our website to your Twitter account. If you interact with the plug-ins, for example if you press the "Tweet" button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to Twitter's server and is stored there. The information will also be posted on your Twitter account and displayed to your contacts there.

Google + (e.g. "+1" button)

Our website uses social plug-ins from the Google + social network operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google").

An overview of the Google plug-ins and their appearance is available here: https://developers.google.com/+/plug-ins. When you visit a page of our website that contains this type of plug-in, your browser makes a direct connection to the Google servers. The content of the plug-in is then transmitted directly to your browser by Google and is integrated into the website. By integrating the plug-in, Google receives a notification that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Google+ profile or are not logged in to Google+. This information (including your IP address) is transferred from your browser directly to a Google server in the USA and is stored there. If you are logged in to Google+, Google can instantly link your visit to our website with your Google+ profile.

YouTube

Our website uses YouTube.com plug-ins operated by YouTube, LLC, Cherry Ave., USA and represented by Google Inc.

This will inform the YouTube server which of our websites you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of YouTube, YouTube will link this information to your personal user accounts on these platforms.
