Demandes générales de renseignements, de destruction et de rectification

If you live in Switzerland, you can ask any organization what information they have on you using this form [there is a similar system in France]. I'm surprised though that such an important process is purely based on goodwill. Organizations send you the data they want, and it's only if you suspect data is incomplete you can ask the authorities to step up. Also made me wonder if this somehow weakens security, letting potential hackers know how one's database is structured.
