Data protection law

We support you in handling personal data

Data protection law regulates the protection of information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. The history of German data protection law goes back to the 1970s. Decisively, data protection was determined by the 1983 census ruling of the German Federal Constitutional Court and was further shaped by European law, in particular by the GDPR and its predecessor, the EU Data Protection Directive, which entered into force on May 25, 2018.

Data protection law has a direct impact on a wide range of activities, be it the permissibility of specific business models, the protection of employee or customer data, or the implementation of security measures or advertising activities. Data protection law is designed to be technology-neutral and open to development, so that it constantly raises new, sometimes complex, questions.
