In this case the affected individual might no longer be able to use certain automated services. The individual will be informed thereof subsequently or separately in advance. Any affected individual may also raise a complaint with the competent data protection authority.


These rights may be subject to exceptions or limitations (e.g. when Data Subjects’ Personal Data have been processed for security purposes or stored for legal or contractual obligations) and shall account for available technology and the cost of implementation. In certain cases, Swiss Export will need to verify the Data Subject’s identity before processing a request he/she may have based on the above-mentioned rights.
