Privacy Protection in Switzerland

In Switzerland, the right to privacy is guaranteed in article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution.

The Swiss Federal Data Protection Act (DPA) and the Swiss Federal Data Protection Ordinance (DPO) entered into force on July 1, 1993.

Unlike the data protection legislation of many other countries, the DPA protects both personal data pertaining to natural persons and legal entities.
