    By submitting a record or any other information to SWISSELECT AG, the person indicates his willingness to share and have his information transferred to be considered for suitable and confidential search assignments. We will store and retain personal information in our database for present or future consideration.
    we use personal information only as permitted or required by law for the purposes of SWISSELECT AG.

    This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited. If the person responsible for data processing on this website is located outside the European Economic Area or Switzerland, Google Analytics data processing is carried out by Google LLC. Google LLC and Google Ireland Limited are hereinafter referred to as "Google". Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on the user's computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website by the website visitor (including the abbreviated IP address) is generally transmitted to a Google server, where it is stored. Google Analytics is used exclusively with the extension "_anonymizeIp()" on this website. This extension ensures anonymization of the IP address by shortening it and excludes direct personal references. This extension shortens Google's IP address within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by the corresponding browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. On behalf of the site operator, Google will use the information collected to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the site operator (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). The justified interest in the data processing lies in the optimisation of this website, the analysis of the use of the website and the adaptation of the contents. The interests of the users are sufficiently protected by pseudonymisation. Google LLC. is certified according to the so-called Privacy Shield (list entry here) and guarantees an appropriate level of data protection on this basis. The data sent and linked to cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 50 months. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month. The collection by Google Analytics can be prevented by the page visitor adjusting the cookie settings for this website. The collection and storage of the IP address and the data generated by cookies can also be objected to at any time with effect for the future. The corresponding browser plugin can be downloaded and installed under the following link:

    We disclose personal information to parties outside SWISSELECT AG only under the following circumstances:
    To clients who engage us to recruit an individual or mandate us to identify individuals with a similar background to a required search profile.
    Under no circumstances do we sell, share or rent personal information to other organisations.
    In exceptional circumstances only it may be necessary for us to disclose personal information if we believe, in good faith, that disclosure is otherwise necessary or advisable to protect SWISSELECT AG’s interests. If so, we will seek to ensure that we disclose only the information required.


    SWISSELECT AG maintains reasonable technical and appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data.
