Subject Data Access Request

Does anyone know if this exists here? Can I ask a sports organisation in charge of my child's sports training to disclose the data that they hold on her? They laughed when I asked, told me CH has nothing to do with the EU. Are they correct that there is no right to personal access data held?

Re: Subject Data Access Request

Thank you. Unfortunately it does not mention about access to personal data. I also found this too in the meantime, which is interesting as it is brand new: https://www.admin.ch/opc/de/classifi...0000/235.1.pdf. Article 23 is missing - I found it in English in the draft here https://www.walderwyss.com/publications/2149.pdf.


I am still not sure if I have the legal right to demand to see what written documents the sports organisation holds.

Re: Subject Data Access Request

I can't seem to link the thread but at the bottom of "Freedom of information in CH" Urs Max links to a site which seems to suggest you have the right to request any data held. My German isn't great however, and I whizzed it though Translate.

Re: Subject Data Access Request

It's quite probable that something very similar to GDPR will be formulated for Swiss data protection law.

Re: Subject Data Access Request

Here the law in English:

Federal Act on Data Protection (might be the 2014 version, but nothing substantial has changed)
https://www.admin.ch/opc/en/classifi...153/index.html

Ordinance to the Federal Act on Data Protection
https://www.admin.ch/opc/en/classifi...159/index.html
