Switzerland is renowned for its strict laws and regulations on privacy and data protection that make it impossible for any third party including authorities to get access to a web hosting provider's data, unless a formal request is filed by a prosecutor, who is investigating a client in particular. At the federal level, the collection and use of personal data is regulated by the Federal Act on Data Protection. Additionally, each canton in Switzerland has a cantonal Data Protection Act in place. There's hardly any other country in the world with a matching grade of privacy protection at the political level.
Not only your data and privacy are protected by Swiss laws, but we also take weighty efforts to secure it at the infrastructure level. Our data center in Zürich is practically a fortress: 24x7 CCTV surveillance, perimeter and inner premises security patrols, multi-layered access barriers, including mantraps and biometric readers.Data protection

For years, governments throughout the world have been exploring solutions meant to crack down on online copyright infringements and piracy. On the contrary, Switzerland has long been considered a pirate's paradise due to quite lenient laws on copyrighted materials and tolerant anti-piracy legislation when compared to other countries.
Because of this, US authorities went ahead and placed Switzerland on a blacklist, containing countries with insufficient anti-piracy and copyright laws. The main cause of this is directly linked to Switzerland’s data and privacy protection laws. As such, according to the Swiss Supreme Court, the privacy of an Internet consumer is more important when compared to the copyrights of an author. Therefore, while leveraging copyrighted data is indeed illegal, the prosecution of copyright violators, alongside P2P downloaders and up-loaders is almost impossible.
In the past, efforts have been made to fight copyright infringement in Switzerland, yet most of these efforts were inefficient due to the lack of legislative backing. However, according to recent reports, Switzerland will now update its legal approach to piracy and copyrighted materials, following the Federal Assembly vote.
At this moment in time, many of the world’s countries have a deep respect for human rights, and breaches of the United Nation’s Convention are quite rare. Regardless, events that took place during the last couple of years prove that not all human rights are respected equally.
Trends showcase that oppressive regimes throughout the world constantly censor the internet activity of citizens, while also exercising their control on the press. This leads to constant misinformation, alongside the inability of citizens to learn more about what’s really happening within their country, or in some cases, in other regions of the world as well. Generally, oppressive regimes actively target freedom of speech, and press freedom, both of which are regarded as inalienable human rights.
