Note on data transmissions to the USA (United States)
For reasons of completeness, we would like to point out that users based in Switzerland are subject to surveillance measures by US authorities, which generally allow the storage of all personal data from Switzerland — which has been transferred to the USA.
This shall be done without differentiation, limitation or exception on the basis of the objectives pursued and without any objective criterion which would allow the US authorities’ access to and subsequent use of the data to be limited to very specific and strictly limited purposes which may justify access to and interference with the data. Furthermore, we would like to inform you that in the USA there are no legal remedies available for the persons concerned from Switzerland that would allow them to gain access to the data concerning them and to obtain its correction or deletion, or that there is no effective legal protection against general access rights of US authorities. We explicitly draw the attention of those concerned to this legal and factual situation in order to make an informed decision to consent to the use of their data.
We would like to draw the attention of users residing in an EU member state to the fact that, from the point of view of the European Union, the USA does not have an adequate level of data protection.
