Data Protection

INP Schweiz AG (referred to in the following as INP Schweiz) is a technical service company in the field of electrical energy technology. Our engineers work for industry leaders in international power station and major plant construction as well as the energy sector. INP provides its in-depth know-how to customers for collaboration within the context of personnel leasing.

In this Privacy Policy, we (INP Schweiz) explain how we collect and process personal data. Personal data refers to all information that relates to an identified or identifiable person.

This Privacy Policy has been prepared according to the requirements of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the revised Swiss Data Protection Act (revDSG). However, whether and to what extent these laws are applicable depends on the individual case.

1 Controller / Data protection consultant

The data protection consultant of INP Schweiz is Michael Müller.

Personal data is collected by our recruiting and HR department. Persons engaged in these departments are responsible for data processing as described herein, unless otherwise indicated for the individual case. Should you have any concerns related to data protection, you may contact the above administrators at or the data protection consultant.

2 Collection and processing of personal data 

We primarily collect and process personal data that we receive from our customers, business partners and other involved parties in connection with our search for personnel and business relationships with such customers and business partners. We may also obtain data via our website or apps. We receive certain data from sister companies of the INP Group, in particular information in connection with the professional functions of existing or potential employees.

3 Purposes of data processing and legal bases 

We primarily use the personal data we collect to conclude and execute our contracts with our customers and business partners, in particular in connection with personnel leasing. If you work for such a customer or business partner, you and your personal data may likewise be affected in this capacity.

Insofar as you have given us consent to process your personal data for certain purposes (such as for your application), we shall process your personal data in connection with and on the basis of this consent, provided that we do not have any other legal basis and require such a legal basis. Consent granted may be revoked at any time, although this shall have no effect on data processing prior to such revocation.

4 Cookies / Tracking and other technologies in the use of our website

We use "cookies" and similar technologies on our website that allow your browser or your device to be identified. A cookie is a small text file that is sent to your computer or automatically saved by your web browser to your computer or mobile device when you visit our website. If you visit this website again, we are thus able to recognise you, even if we do not know who you are. However, you may configure your browser to reject cookies, to store cookies only for a session or otherwise to delete cookies early. Most browsers are configured by default to accept cookies. We use permanent cookies so that you can save user settings. If you block cookies, it is possible that certain functionalities will no longer work.

We also use Google Analytics or similar services on our website. This is a service provided by third parties who may be located in any country around the world (in the case of Google Analytics, this is Google Ireland (based in Ireland), Google Ireland utilises Google LLC (based in the USA) as the processor (both referred to as "Google"),, which we can use to measure and evaluate the use of the website (without reference to personal identities). Cookies are likewise used for this purpose, which are placed by the service provider. We have configured the service such that Google shortens the IP addresses of visitors in Europe before forwarding them to the USA to prevent these from being traced back to visitors. We have switched off the settings "Data transfer" and "Signals". Although we may assume that the information we share with Google does not concern personal data for Google, it is possible that Google may use this data for its own purposes to draw conclusions about the identity of visitors, create personal profiles and link this data to the Google accounts of these persons.

Moreover, we use plug-ins from social networks, such as Facebook, LinkedIn, kununu and YouTube, on our website. You can see these plug-ins via the corresponding symbols. We have configured these elements to be deactivated by default. Should you active these elements (by clicking on them), the operators of the respective social networks may register that you are on our website and the specific webpage, and may use this information for their own purposes. Your personal data is then processed under the responsibility of these operators according to their privacy policies. We do not receive any information about you from these operators.

5 Data transfer and data transmission abroad 

In connection with our business activities and the purposes under Section 3, we also disclose data to third parties insofar as this is permitted and seems appropriate to us, whether because these third parties process the data for us or because they wish to use the data for their own purposes. This primarily concerns the following parties:

  • Sister companies of the INP Group
  • Processors
  • Customers and business partners

These recipients may be in Switzerland or somewhere else in the world. In particular, you should expect the transmission of your data to all countries in which the ING Group is represented by branches or other offices (INP locations) as well as in other countries worldwide and the USA. Where a recipient is located in a country without appropriate statutory data protection, we commit the recipient to adhere to applicable data protection requirements (GDPR of the EU or revDSG of Switzerland) by way of contractual agreement. In exceptional cases, data may be disclosed abroad in legal proceedings abroad, as well as in cases of prevailing public interest or if contract execution requires such disclosure, if you have provided your consent or if this concerns data you have made publicly accessible and to whose processing you have not objected.

6 Storage duration of personal data 

We shall process and store your personal data for as long as necessary for the fulfilment of our contractual and statutory duties or otherwise for the purposes pursued in processing, i.e. such as for the duration of the entire business relationship (from initiation and execution to termination of a contract) as well as beyond in accordance with the statutory retention and documentation duties. As soon as your personal data is no longer required for the above-mentioned purposes, the data shall generally be deleted or anonymised, where possible.

7 Data security

We take technical and organisational security precautions to protect your personal data against unauthorised access and abuse. We issue instructions and regulations, train our employees, operate IT security solutions and restrict access to personal data to a limited group of persons.

8 Duty to provide personal data 

In connection with our business relationship, you must provide the personal data that is required for the commencement and execution of a business relationship and the fulfilment of the associated contractual duties (you do not generally have a statutory duty to provide us data). Where this data is not provided, we are generally unable to conclude or execute a contract with you. You may also not be able to use the website if you do not disclose certain information to ensure data traffic.

9 Profiling

We process your personal data manually with the aim of evaluating certain personal aspects (profiling). In particular, we use profiling to offer you to our customers in a targeted manner for certain projects.

10 Rights of data subjects

Within the framework of data protection law applicable to you and insofar as stipulated therein (such as in the case of the GDPR or revDSG), you have the right to information, rectification, erasure, the restriction of data processing and otherwise to object to our data processing. However, please note that we reserve the right to assert the restrictions prescribed by law on our part, such as if we are obliged to retain or process certain data, have a legitimate interest therein (insofar as we may invoke same) or we require the data to exercise claims. If costs are incurred for you, we shall inform you in advance. In Section 3, we already informed you of the possibility to revoke your consent. Please note that the assertion of these rights may contradict contractual agreements and this may have consequences such as premature contract termination or costs. We shall inform you in advance if this is the case if this is not already regulated by contract.

The assertion of such rights requires that you unequivocally prove your identity (e.g. by means of an ID copy if your identity is not otherwise clear or verifiable). In order to assert your rights, you may contact us via the address stated in Section 1. Each data subject also has the right to assert their claims in court or to lodge a complaint with the competent data protection supervisory authority.  The competent data protection supervisory authority in Switzerland is the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (
