Imple­men­ta­ti­on of the Schen­gen fur­ther deve­lo­p­ment in the area of data protection

The EU Frame­work Decis­i­on 2008/977/JHA of 27 Novem­ber 2008 on the pro­tec­tion of per­so­nal data pro­ce­s­sed in the frame­work of poli­ce and judi­cial coope­ra­ti­on in cri­mi­nal mat­ters was imple­men­ted in Switz­er­land by amen­ding the Data Pro­tec­tion Act. In doing so, the fede­ral bodies were obli­ged, on the one hand, to inform the data sub­ject of any acqui­si­ti­on of data and, on the other hand, to retain per­so­nal data if its des­truc­tion would harm the inte­rests of the data sub­ject. In addi­ti­on, the StGB and the Schen­gen Infor­ma­ti­on Exch­an­ge Act set out the con­di­ti­ons under which data obtai­ned from a Schen­gen sta­te may be for­ward­ed to a third sta­te, an inter­na­tio­nal body or a natu­ral or legal person.
