The Swiss Phone Book

I was in Fust today and I noticed the Swiss phone book available on DVD (for 29 chuffs!). My question is: am I in it? Is it opt in or opt out? What details might they have for me? Can I opt out? How?

Re: The Swiss Phone Book

Directories from Swisscom provide the info for services such as Twix Tel, a common source of contact info. Contact your provider of telephone services and ask to be removed. They usually ask you when ordering your contract if you would like to be in the directories, but if you don't speak the local language...

Thanks.

My OH speaks perfect Hoch Deutsche. She probably missed the check box, as we all do from time to time.
