Public transport companies treat their customers’ data in confidence.

Protecting your personality and privacy is a major concern for us as public transport companies. We guarantee to you that we will process your personal data in accordance with the applicable provisions of data protection law.

By adhering to the following principles, public transport companies give a clear signal that your data will be handled in confidence:

You decide yourself how your personal data are to be processed.

Where permitted by law, you can at any time object to data processing, withdraw your consent or require that your data be erased. You always have the option of travelling anonymously without your personal data being recorded.

We offer you added value by processing your data.

Public transport companies use your personal data exclusively in relation to the provision of services and in order to offer you added value throughout the mobility chain (e.g. bespoke offers and information, support or compensation in the event of disruption). Your data are therefore used only in relation to the development, provision, optimisation and assessment of our services or for customer support purposes.

Your data are not sold.

Your data are only disclosed to selected third parties specified in this Privacy Policy and only for the purposes specifically indicated. If we commission third parties to carry out data processing, they will be required to comply with our data protection standards.

We provide you with more detailed information below about how we handle your data.

Data processing within Z-Pass

Basic principles

Z-Pass is a partnership comprising the partners Zurich Transport Network ZVV and the adjacent A-Welle, OSTWIND, Schwyz and Zug fare transport networks as well as SBB (further information is available at https://www.z-pass.ch/zpass/en/about-us/z-pass.html).

As a general rule, the individual Z-Pass partners are responsible for the processing of Z-Pass customer data (i.e. personal data concerning the individual Z-Pass ticket or railcard holder). For further information, please refer to the privacy policies of the individual Z-Pass partners:

 

The operator of the distribution system on which you purchase a Z-Pass service also processes your data for the purpose of completing the purchase. The relevant operator is exclusively responsible for such processing (and as the case may be any further processing in addition to completing the purchase), and its privacy policy alone is applicable.

Specific arrangements relating to the notification service

The only exception from the above principle relates to the notification service, which informs you by letter, email or SMS concerning the expiry or renewal of your Z-Pass railcard. This is a service provided by the Z-Pass partnership as a whole. For this purpose, the Z-Pass partnership has commissioned the firm MNC with preparing and sending the relevant letters, emails and SMS messages. MNC also processes personal data (customer data) in relation to this mandate. However, it only does so where necessary in order to provide the said service for the Z-Pass partnership and is under a contractual obligation to comply with the Privacy Policy as applicable from time to time.
