Privacy Policy

Dated June 2021
At HIDORA we take data protection very seriously.
This document describes our policies regarding the personal data we receive, why and how we process it. This privacy policy applies to and forms part of our contracts, and governs the use of our website.

1. Act as data controller for the execution of the contract

The personal data generally concerned is "business information". It relates to identified or identifiable individuals, such as name, telephone number, address, e-mail address and position within the organisation. It may also include technical information, i.e. the relevant IP address, and bank details for payment purposes. Please note that we do not have access to the personal data you process with your chosen payment solution provider.

In order to meet contract performance obligations and to ensure that services meet high quality standards, we collect, store and process, only to the extent necessary, personal data of our customers and suppliers in order to manage business relationships, process purchase orders and contracts, provide products and services, invoice and provide support services. Our data processing includes security and technical operating measures, including certain infrastructure, communication, quality or similar services. This is the sole purpose of our personal data processing activities.
The processing of personal data may also include what is necessary to process analyses and statistics as part of its contractual obligations, for quality, security and reporting purposes and for billing activities.

2. Acting as a data controller for our clients

Where a cloud or managed services contract is involved, we process Customer data as a data processor of certain Customer data (including Customer content). The Customer is the designated data controller (including all related obligations), and we process the data exclusively in accordance with the stated contract.

The performance of each party shall be in accordance with Swiss data protection laws and also, where applicable, the standards of the EU GDPR directives (General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679). We will reasonably cooperate with the Customer in its fulfillment of any legal requirements, such as providing access to personal data, or requests for inspection and compliance audits, or where a transfer abroad requires additional agreements to protect personal data.

The content data that customers entrust to us when using the services will not be read, modified or evaluated by us without the customer's knowledge. Technical and organisational security measures are in place to protect it against unauthorised access by third parties. Where technically possible and at the request of the customer, specific security measures can be added to the usual services, such as data encryption. These measures are at the customer's discretion and require the prior agreement of both parties. We have no influence on the security of the Customer's content data when it is transferred via public networks. We shall destroy the Customer's content data no later than 60 days after the expiry or termination of the services, or at the Customer's request, we may return it in due course.

We only disclose Customer data to public authorities when we are legally obliged to do so.


Where a third party is involved in the performance of the services, we may need to provide them with the Customer's data. In this case :

  • Third parties may be granted limited and controlled access to personal data necessary for business processes, for example for debt collection purposes or to maintain IT operations,
  • We require third parties to handle data protection in accordance with applicable law,
  • We only disclose information that is necessary to provide the service,
  • We will inform you when we use a processor who has access to personal data.

Unless otherwise specified in the contract, as a processor we process personal data in a data centre located in Switzerland.
For cloud and managed services, we use the following processor who may process personal data for technical reasons:

  • Virtuozzo International GmbH
    Vordergasse 59, Schaffhausen 8200, Switzerland
