lit. d) Processing of personal data in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person.
lit. f) Processing of personal data in order to protect the legitimate interests of us or of third parties, provided that the fundamental freedoms and rights and interests of the data subject do not prevail. Legitimate interests are in particular our business interest in being able to provide our website, information security, the enforcement of our own legal claims and compliance with Swiss law.
We process personal data for the duration required for the respective purpose or purposes. In the case of longer-term retention obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we restrict processing accordingly.

Services subject to a charge
For the provision of chargeable services, we request additional data, such as payment details, in order to be able to execute your order. We store this data in our systems until the statutory retention periods have expired.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited. If the data controller on this website is located outside the European Economic Area or Switzerland, then Google Analytics data processing is carried out by Google LLC. Google LLC and Google Ireland Limited are hereinafter referred to as "Google".
The statistics obtained enable us to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. This website also uses Google Analytics for a cross-device analysis of visitor flows, which is carried out via a user ID. If you have a Google user account, you can deactivate the cross-device analysis of your usage in the settings there under "My data", "Personal data".
The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code "_anonymizeIp();" in order to ensure anonymised collection of IP addresses. This means that IP addresses are processed in abbreviated form, which means that they cannot be linked to a specific person. If the data collected about you is related to a person, this is immediately excluded and the personal data is deleted immediately.
Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
Furthermore, you can also prevent the use of Google Analytics by clicking on this link: Deactivate Google Analytics. This will save a so-called opt-out cookie on your data carrier, which prevents the processing of personal data by Google Analytics. Please note that if you delete all cookies on your terminal device, these opt-out cookies will also be deleted, i.e. you will have to set the opt-out cookies again if you wish to continue to prevent this form of data collection. The opt-out cookies are set per browser and computer/end device and must therefore be activated separately for each browser, computer or other end device.
Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with Google's server. Through the integration of Google Ads, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that Google will obtain and store your IP address.
You can prevent participation in this tracking process in various ways:
by adjusting your browser software settings accordingly; in particular, suppressing third-party cookies will result in you not receiving third-party ads;
by disabling conversion tracking cookies by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain "www.googleadservices.com", https://adssettings.google.com, which setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies;
by disabling interest-based ads from the providers that are part of the self-regulatory campaign "About Ads", via the link https://www.aboutads.info/choices, this setting being deleted when you delete your cookies;
by permanently deactivating them in your Firefox, Internetexplorer or Google Chrome browsers at the link https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this offer to their full extent.
The legal basis for the processing of your data is a balancing of interests, according to which the processing of your personal data described above is not opposed by any overriding interests on your part (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO).

Note on data transfer to the USA
Among other things, tools from companies based in the USA are integrated on our website. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to the US servers of the respective companies. We would like to point out that the USA is not a safe third country in the sense of EU data protection law. US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as a data subject being able to take legal action against this.

Terms & Conditions
General terms and conditions of teslify ag in relation to the rental of vehicles
1 General information and scope of application
teslify ag is a public limited company registered in the Commercial Register of the Canton of Zurich, the purpose of which is, among other things, the rental of vehicles.
These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter "GTC"), together with an individual rental agreement (hereinafter "Agreement" or "Contract"), govern the conclusion, content and execution of agreements for the rental of vehicles by teslify ag (hereinafter "teslify") to customers (hereinafter "Lessee", "Hirer", "Tenant" or "Renter"). If individual agreements and the GTC contain provisions that differ from each other, the provisions of the individual agreement shall take precedence over those of the GTC. However, if the provisions of the agreement are unclear or incomplete, the provisions of the GTC shall apply.
The GTC are deemed to be accepted by the tenant by submitting a booking request.
The validity of any general terms and conditions of the tenant is hereby excluded.
2 Conclusion of contract
The booking request is a binding offer within the meaning of Art. 3 et seq. of the Swiss Code of Obligations for the conclusion of a contract for the rental of a vehicle. The contract is concluded by written confirmation from teslify to the tenant.
The content of the concluded contract is confirmed by the tenant's signature (in person or on an electronic device) when taking over the vehicle.
If the desired vehicle model is not available, teslify reserves the right to offer the tenant another vehicle model or to reject the tenant's booking request.
If a vehicle is not available at the agreed time, teslify is entitled to offer the tenant another vehicle model even after conclusion of the contract. If the offered vehicle belongs to a cheaper category, the rental price may be reduced depending on the effort involved. If the vehicle belongs to a more expensive category, the originally agreed rental price shall remain in effect. The unavailability of the desired vehicle model does not entitle the tenant to withdraw from the contract or to claim damages. If no vehicle is available, teslify is entitled to withdraw from the contract without liability for damages.
3 General rental requirements
teslify rents vehicles exclusively to legal entities or to natural persons over 18 years of age with a driving license valid in Switzerland for the corresponding vehicle category. For Performance models, it is also a prerequisite that the first issuance of the required national driver's license of all agreed drivers was at least 18 months ago. Tesla Model X Performance models are only rented to over 25-year-olds.
The respective rates can be found in the rate list on the teslify website or in the contract. A daily rental covers 24 hours. A rental period shorter than 24 hours or an early return has no influence on the rental price and the additional services booked, unless otherwise agreed. From the 25th hour another rental day will be charged. In the case of long-term rentals, not only the rates but also the included services may differ.
5 Delivery and collection service
If notified in advance by the lessee and subject to availability, teslify offers the lessee a free delivery and collection service at all locations in Switzerland and the Principality of Liechtenstein that are easily accessible. For an additional charge and subject to availability, teslify also offers the delivery and collection service in the other neighboring countries. The tenant is requested to inform teslify as early as possible where he/she wishes to receive the vehicle and return it after use. In the event of last-minute enquiries or requests for changes, as well as in the event of considerable additional expenditure for teslify, teslify can also offer the delivery and collection service in Switzerland and the Principality of Liechtenstein for an additional charge. The delivery and collection service shall only be deemed to have been agreed once it has been confirmed in writing by teslify (including details of place and time). The special provisions on handover and return must be observed (cf. in particular Sections 7.3, 7.4, 12, 15.1 and 15.2).
To secure all claims of teslify arising from or in connection with the contract, the tenant is obliged to pay an interest-free deposit of at least CHF 1'000 at the latest when taking over the vehicle. In the case of hirers not resident or domiciled in Switzerland or drivers without a Swiss driving license, the deposit shall amount to at least CHF 2’000. The deposit may be paid in cash or blocked on the credit card. If the deposit is not paid in due time, teslify is entitled to refuse to hand over the vehicle and to hold on to all claims or to withdraw from the contract and claim damages. teslify is entitled to assert its claim for payment of the deposit at any time.
teslify is entitled to mix the deposit with its assets and to offset it against all claims against the lessee in connection with the contract. If no set-off is made, teslify shall return or release the deposit within 5 working days after the return of the vehicle. In the event of disputed claims, teslify reserves the right to retain the deposit until these have been clarified.
The vehicle shall be handed over at the registered office of teslify or at the handover location agreed at the request of the tenant and confirmed in writing by teslify. A handover protocol shall be drawn up upon handover of the vehicle. The lessee or an agreed driver shall be obliged to present the following documents when taking over the vehicle:
a) A national driver's license valid for driving a vehicle in Switzerland and issued in Latin script with an explicit and comprehensible indication of the required vehicle category (e.g. a Swiss driver's license). If the national driver's license does not fulfill all the above-mentioned points, a valid international driver's license must also be presented.
b) A valid passport or Swiss identity card or an identity card from an EU country.
If one of these documents is not available when the vehicle is handed over, teslify is entitled to refuse to hand over the vehicle without further ado and to stick to the rental price plus the price of booked additional services or to withdraw from the contract and demand compensation for damages.
7.2 Vehicle condition at handover
When handing over the vehicle, the hirer must ensure that the mileage and the battery status correspond to the information in the handover report and that any damage to the vehicle is marked or described on the sketch in the handover report. The hirer must confirm the correctness of the information in the handover report with his signature. If no entry is made in the handover report, it may be assumed that the damage was not present at the time of handover.
The tenant must also ensure that the vehicle is in safe operating condition before commencing the rental. If there are defects that restrict the operational safety or if maintenance work is required to ensure operational safety, the further procedure must be discussed with teslify before the start of the journey.
7.3 Late takeover
If the tenant arrives after the agreed time, the rental price plus any additional services booked will remain for the unused period (default of acceptance). In case of late takeover, teslify is additionally entitled to charge the tenant a handling fee of maximum CHF 200.
If the vehicle was not accepted on the agreed date, teslify is no longer obliged to maintain the reservation and may withdraw from the contract. In the case of an agreed delivery service, teslify may withdraw from the contract with prior notification of delay by the tenant 2 hours after the originally agreed delivery time and without notification of delay after 30 minutes of delay.
In the event of cancellation due to late takeover by the tenant, teslify may charge a cancellation fee of a maximum of CHF 250. Compensation for damages remains reserved.
7.4 Special features of the delivery service
If the vehicle is taken over at a location other than teslify's headquarters, it cannot be guaranteed that the vehicle can be handed over perfectly clean, both inside and out. In addition, delays may occur in the delivery service due to weather or traffic conditions. Delays will be notified to the hirer as early as possible. The hirer shall not be entitled to a corresponding extension of the rental period or to any other compensation. However, from a delay of 90 minutes, the tenant has the right to withdraw from the contract due to late delivery, without any consequence of damages at the expense of teslify.
