What laws must be observed?
The Swiss Federal Data Protection Act (DPA) was revised as of September 1, 2023 and applies to the editing of personal data of natural persons.
In the EU, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been in force since May 25, 2018. The law regulates the processing of personal data, but also data traffic within the European Union. Since most companies in Switzerland have interfaces with the EU, these companies may also be affected.
