No. The app can be used by everyone, including guests and visitors. For the full use, a registration via Roche Login is required.

All developments and functionalities have undergone the required checks and tests and have been agreed with the data privacy officer, workers council and local legal departments. No sensitive data is stored and location sharing is voluntary and only done on request with individuals.

As soon as you leave the site, your location is no longer visible on the map. Therefore, it is not a problem if you do not turn off the function.

As the Basel & Kaiseraugst site covers a lot of floor space and a wide variety of buildings. We have concentrated on implementing ABW-spaces in the beginning, but continue to add more spaces and buildings within the next months.

For Indoor Navigation and other location-based-services a cost-intensive infrastructure is necessary, which has been installed mainly in office buildings.

The basic infrastructure for use cases such as indoor navigation, the colleague finder or finding points of interest is the Bluetooth Low Energy Mesh Network, which was rolled out primarily on the activity based working areas. This allows the user's device to determine its own position locally. This is neither tracked nor is the location shared with colleagues without consent.

A key principle of our smart building mindset is the reuse of existing infrastructure. Therefore, we have also connected the building management system and use motion detectors, which are normally used to control lighting or ventilation, to indicate a free space.

Larger meeting rooms have optical sensors installed, which not only record the pure occupancy but also the number of people. This is particularly important in order to adjust the air supply accordingly and to provide the real estate management with an understanding of the exact occupancy of these rooms. No visual material is transmitted, only the number of people in the respective room.

Some of you have certainly experienced the installation of line counters in your everyday life in supermarkets due to the COVID-19 pandemic. At Roche, these have been installed in new buildings in addition to the catering areas and are being retrofitted in existing buildings. This gives us the opportunity to gain an understanding of the utilization of our activity-based working environment and thus be able to make data-driven decisions in the future.

The existing infrastructure of WiFi access points helps us to get a more accurate evaluation of the individual floors. It is important to note that we do not evaluate any personal data for our evaluation, but only the number of devices that are logged on to an access point.
