Internet privacy laws in Switzerland

Any idea? I assume every website we visit on the net gets logged somewhere by our ISP. How long are they allowed to hold on to this data? Who can access this data? If I remember in UK they are allowed to hold this data for one year and then they have to destroy it (I could be completely wrong though).
Could the information regarding the sites we visit be used against us somehow? Say for our political views? I am asking all this beause I was talking with my American friend who is very paranoid about talking stuff online due to all the monitoring that is going on in Mr Bush's US.

I did use the search function and found this thread but it's not exactly same.
