The German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz) (“FDPA”) will come into effect in a new version on May 25, 2018. The 16 German federal states also have state-leveldata protection laws which will also be adapted to the GDPR. These laws only apply to the public sector in the relevant state.

We are living in a digital, connected world. For this reason, when we talk about protecting our data we do not only think about keeping our letters private or avoiding the neighbours from knowing our political or religious beliefs.

Data protection laws in all countries are a measure to protect the individual’s personal data, by controlling how it is used by entities who may have them. Even if there might be differences between countries depending on their laws, some basics are always considered sensitive information (religious background, race, information about children …).

Data protection is especially controlled all over the European Union due to the recent Data Protection Act, which applied on May 25, 2018. Anyway, in the following chapter we will have a deeper vision on how it is conceived in each country.
