Swiss Time -- Privacy Shield Over

The Swiss Federal Information and Data Commissioner invalidated the Swiss-EU Privacy Shield following it's annual review.  Like the EU, it's time out for the Privacy Shield framework and transfers of personal data from Swiss to the US.

After closely analysing the regime, the FDPIC concludes in his position paper of 8 September 2020 that, although it guarantees special protection rights for persons in Switzerland, it does not provide an adequate level of protection for data transfer from Switzerland to the US pursuant to the Federal Act on Data Protection (FADP).
