Wherever required, we will also present you with specific privacy policies for the purposes of activities not covered under this Privacy Policy including but not limited to recruitment, employment, or third party management.

In doing this, we may install “cookies” or similar technologies that collect the domain name of the user, your internet service provider, your operating system, and the date and time of access. Cookies are created and stored on the user’s computer, phone or other devices when the user’s browser loads a particular website. Every time the user goes back to the same website, the browser retrieves and sends this “cookie” file to the website.

Certain of our Services, including this website, may use the web analysis service “Google Analytics 4” from Google LLC, of 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”) to optimize them. Google Analytics 4 is an analytics service that enables us to measure traffic and engagement across our website. In order to increase the security of your Personal Data, the “IP anonymization” function is activated by default and cannot be adjusted by users which means that Google Analytics 4 will not store IP addresses of users. For more information on how IP anonymization works, click:


Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity for us and to provide us with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Oculis uses the data received from Google Analytics for business planning, for its own business activities and for marketing measures in order to better understand how the content of our web services and the associated experience can be improved.


Certain of our websites also use Cookiebot cookies to enable you to manage the cookies easily and help us to obtain your consent for our placement and use of cookies on your device. We need these cookies to remember the choices that you have made regarding cookie settings.


The legal basis for the processing of your Personal Data when we do website analytics is your consent or our legitimate business interests.



We may use your Personal Data for our business purposes, including audits, monitoring and prevention of fraud, and infringement.


Also, we may use your Personal Data:


  • if we are required to do so because of an applicable law, requests from public and government authorities (including court order, subpoena, or governmental regulation), even outside your country of residence;
  • if we need to enforce our terms and conditions;
  • when we believe in good faith that the use of Personal Information is necessary to protect legal rights, the security or integrity of this website;
  • to protect your safety or the safety of others;
  • as part of any criminal or other legal investigation or proceeding in your country or in other countries; or
  • to the extent reasonably necessary for development of or to proceed with the negotiation or completion of a corporate or commercial transaction.


We do not collect sensitive Personal Data. You are requested to not disclose your sensitive Personal Data to us unless we specifically ask for it (e.g., national identification card numbers, information related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or philosophical beliefs, health, sex life or sexual orientation, criminal background, or trade union membership, or biometric or genetic data for the purpose of uniquely identifying an individual).

When and to whom do we disclose your Personal Data?

We may share your Personal Data with other Oculis subsidiaries and affiliates worldwide to exchange information and maintain databases in different countries. We also may transfer Personal Data to third parties who act on our behalf, for further processing in accordance with the purpose(s) for which the data were originally collected or may otherwise be lawfully processed, evaluating the usefulness of our Services, data management, or technical support.


We will not sell, share, or otherwise transfer your Personal Data to third parties other than those indicated in this Privacy Policy.


In the course of our activities and for the same purposes as those listed in this Privacy Policy, your Personal Data can be accessed by, or transferred to the following categories of recipients on a need to know basis to achieve such purposes:


  • our personnel (including personnel, departments or other companies of the Oculis group);
  • our independent agents or brokers (if any);
  • our other suppliers and service providers that provide services and products to us; and
  • our IT systems providers, cloud service providers, database providers and consultants.


These third parties have contracted with us to only use Personal Data for the agreed upon purpose, and not to sell Personal Data to third parties, and not to disclose it to third parties except as may be permitted by us, as required by law, or as stated in this Privacy Policy.


Also, we may disclose your Personal Data to a third party if we are required to do so because of an applicable law, requests from public and government authorities (including court order, subpoena, or governmental regulation), even outside your country of residence; if we need to enforce our terms and conditions; when we believe in good faith that the disclosure is necessary to protect legal rights, the security or integrity of this website; to protect your safety or the safety of others; as part of any criminal or other legal investigation or proceeding in your country or in other countries; or to third parties, advisors, and other entities to the extent reasonably necessary for development of or to proceed with the negotiation or completion of a corporate or commercial transaction.


Your Personal Data may also be processed, accessed, or stored in countries outside Switzerland. Such countries may offer a different level of protection of Personal Data. If we transfer your Personal Data to external companies in other jurisdictions, we will make sure to protect your Personal Data by applying the level of protection required under applicable data privacy laws by implementing adequate technical and organisational measures. In the event that your Personal Data is transferred to a service provider based in a third country (countries outside the European Union that do not have a level of data protection comparable to the data protection law of the European Union, as determined by a competent data protection authority) and processed there, Oculis ensures the protection of your Personal Data by means of Standard Contractual Clauses or EU Model Clauses or another method in accordance with applicable law. Should these Standard Contractual Clauses in the future be declared null and void and/or be revised by the European Commission, we will adopt other applicable and/or approved instruments to provide for appropriate safeguards required for the third country transfers and enter into such agreed instruments in a written and legally binding form.

How long do we keep your Personal Data?

We keep your Personal Data for as long as you use the Services. We may also keep your Personal Data for a reasonable period following the fulfilment of our Services or termination of your relationship with us or discontinuation of your use of our Services, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.

How do we protect your Personal Data?

We have implemented appropriate technical and organisational measures designed to provide an adequate level of security and confidentiality to your Personal Information. The purpose of these measures is to protect Personal Information against accidental or unlawful destruction or alteration, accidental loss, unauthorized disclosure or access and against other unlawful forms of processing.
