Data Business Services provides you with all the services of a Swiss Representative for data protection. With Data Business Services located in Zurich, Switzerland as your Swiss Representative you can be sure that your company is set for complete nFADP compliance. And with a Swiss Representative in Switzerland, you are prepared for all Swiss privacy inquiries that may arise.
If you do not have a registered office in Switzerland, you probably still need a Swiss Representative. Why? Because you are likely to lose business and perhaps even risk being imposed a fine. One of the rules of the nFADP is the necessity to appoint a Swiss Representative when you process personal data of people located in Switzerland, regardless of your company’s location.
Do I Need A Swiss Representative?
- Do you offer goods or services to customers or clients in Switzerland?
- Do you monitor the behavior of people in Switzerland?
If the answer to one of these questions is YES, then you must appoint a representative according to the nFADP, especially if your company does not have any physical presence in Switzerland. Exception: If you are processing personal data only occasionally and if so, then without any risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons. However, the scope for applying this exception is rather small especially for online companies, as most of them rely heavily on the usage of personal data.
