Have the processing of your personal data restricted by the Federal Statistical Office


As a citizen of the European Union, you can request from any body that stores and processes personal data about you that your data may only be stored, but no longer processed.
Personal data includes, for example:

  • Online data such as IP address, location data, email address
  • Bank details such as account balances, account numbers
  • Identification numbers such as ID card number or social security number
  • Land Registry Entries
  • Health information such as genetic data, medical data
  • Testimonies
  • General personal data such as name, address, age, marital status
  • physical characteristics such as gender, skin, hair or eye color, height

With your right to restriction of processing, you can prevent your personal data from continuing to be processed electronically for the time being. As soon as the rights of the data processing entity have expired, your data will be permanently deleted. You can only invoke your right to restriction of processing under certain conditions.

You can assert the right to restriction of processing vis-à-vis public and non-public bodies. Public bodies are, for example, authorities such as the Federal Statistical Office (StBA), non-public bodies are commercial enterprises, associations or clubs.

You must request the restriction of the processing of your personal data directly from the StBA.
 

Process flow

You can request the restriction of processing of your personal data online or in writing by post.
Request restriction from the StBA online:

  • Access the online application on the StBA website. This will guide you step by step through the necessary information, which you can enter electronically.
  • The StBA will usually send you the corresponding answer by post to your registration address or, under certain circumstances, by e-mail.
  • Request restriction from the StBA in writing:
  • You can submit your application informally.
  • Send your application by post or e-mail to the public body.

The StBA will send you the corresponding answer by post to your registration address or by e-mail.
 

Requirements

You can request the restriction of processing of your personal data if:

  • you have requested the correction of incorrect data and the data processing body is reviewing this request,
  • you have objected to the processing and it is still necessary to check whether the interest of the data processor may prevail,
  • you expressly request the restriction instead of deletion, or
  • the data processing body no longer needs your data, but it still wants to use it for its own purposes.

You cannot have the processing of your personal data restricted if it is processed:

  • for archiving purposes which are in the public interest and which would be seriously affected by the restriction,
  • for research, science or statistics, insofar as the original purpose would no longer be achieved or seriously impaired by the restriction of processing.

Which documents are required?

  • No documentation is required.

What are the fees?

There are no costs for you.

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

You do not have to observe any deadlines.

Processing duration

The processing of your personal data must be stopped immediately if all conditions are met, i.e. without undue delay on the part of the entity processing the data. As a general rule, you must be informed of the measures taken no later than 1 month after you have requested the restriction. If this is not possible, you must be informed of the reasons for the delay and the extended deadline.
