Our data sources

Information about companies, consumers and credit ranking

We keep a directory of Swiss companies and private persons to carry out its activities as credit bureau. The database is currently updated with information from publicly available registers such as the commercial register and pubic data sources such as daily newspapers, from providers of address information such as Swiss Post and other address brokers and further publicly available sources like the internet.

Additional data elements such as contact details and creditworthiness information come from direct questions to companies and persons as well as from a network of data suppliers such as collection agencies where creditworthiness information about e.g. the payment practice are collected.
