Is Threema Work compliant with Swiss and EU data-privacy standards?
As a Swiss company, Threema is subject to Switzerland’s strict “Federal Act on Data Protection” (DSG) and the accompanying “Ordinance to the Federal Act on Data Protection” (VDSG).
Based on Article 25, paragraph 6 of the EU’s Data Protection Directive, the domestic law in Switzerland is similar to the EU's legislation in regard to data protection.
As far as data protection is concerned, the transmission of data from the EU to Switzerland is therefore permitted by law and doesn't require further evaluation.
