Art. 22 Processing for research, planning and statistics

1Fed­er­al bod­ies may pro­cess per­son­al data for pur­poses not re­lated to spe­cif­ic per­sons, and in par­tic­u­lar for re­search, plan­ning and stat­ist­ics, if:

the data is rendered an­onym­ous, as soon as the pur­pose of the pro­cessing per­mits;
the re­cip­i­ent only dis­closes the data with the con­sent of the fed­er­al body and
the res­ults are pub­lished in such a man­ner that the data sub­jects may not be iden­ti­fied.

2The re­quire­ments of the fol­low­ing pro­vi­sions need not be ful­filled:
