What is the new Federal Act on Data Protection (FADP), does it affect you, and how do you comply with FADP using iubenda? We break it down in easy, understandable terms in the sections below.
The Swiss central data protection law enacted at the federal level is the Federal Act on Data Protection, which dates back to 1992 and was partially updated in 2019. Consequently, the Swiss Parliament has adopted a fully revised version of the law.
The new FADP applies to the processing of personal data with effects in Switzerland, even if carried out abroad, and imposes new requirements on businesses.
Our solutions eliminate the need for guesswork in compliance by handling the heavy technical and legal aspects.
With iubenda, you can meet these new legal requirements.

💡 We’ve added a Site Scanner within the service’s window of the generator, allowing you to quickly inspect your site in real-time and identify which services you need to add to your policy.
These additional clauses can be of great help, but they contain broad and generic descriptions since we do not know exactly how you transfer data abroad. Therefore, we highly recommend that you check if they apply to your case and, if needed, describe your data transfer activities in more detail by adding custom clauses.

Our Privacy widget can help you comply with the requirement to offer a simple way for your users to exercise their right to opt out: a small, unobtrusive widget, with a predefined format and label, will be displayed on every page of your website.
To do this, under the Style & Text section, click Edit on the Privacy widget box, then simply choose the option to add it Manually.
If you want to add the link manually, remember to place it on your website/app in an easily accessible spot, for example, the footer or the application settings.
Short answer: no, you don’t need one.
Inside the Switzerland tile, under the Manual configuration, select the option “ Show a cookie banner upon the user’s first visit ”
Some of the legislation covered by our solution, such as GDPR and LGPD for example, require prior-consent (i.e., cookies and similar technologies are not placed until the user has given consent).
It might be the case that according to where you or your target users are located, you are required to comply with multiple legislation at the same time that follows different approaches (i.e., prior consent approach vs. opt-out approach). When this happens, our Privacy Controls and Cookie Solution offers you different options to address the problem:
Take advantage of the geolocation feature (this might require you to update your plan). With the geolocation feature, you can decide to apply different approaches (i.e., prior consent approach vs. opt-out approach) based on the user location. E.g., taking into consideration your specific situation, you can decide to apply GDPR (prior-consent approach) to users in Europe only and the Swiss data protection framework (opt-out approach) to users in Switzerland only. In order to do so, you have to select the related option under the Manual configuration inside the respective legislation tiles.
Apply globally the prior consent approach (this option will be the default if, according to your plan, you don’t have the geolocation feature activated). Therefore, a consent-based approach (i.e., trackers are not placed until the user has given consent) rather than an opt-out approach will be applied to all your users regardless of their location.
Within the Privacy Controls and Cookie Solution Generator, simply enable the Switzerland option.
