New legislation has been introduced which effects Switzerland with effect from 25 May 2018. By virtue of this legislation, companies are required amongst other things to obtain the written consent of EU individuals, or individuals living in the EU, to collect, process, use and store personal data. The data we collect is used only for the services we provide to our clients, such as completion of their personal tax returns, processing of their monthly salary slips, and is not used for any other purpose. As part of our services, we may be asked to provide data to third parties such as the tax authorities or social security authorities but this is limited to the specific services we provide. We do not provide data to third parties that is unrelated to the services we provide to our clients. Data is stored only for as long as Swiss regulations oblige us to store it.
