Whether start-ups or international group companies, banks or insurances, or even charitable nonprofit organizations, like foundations, associations or clubs: Anyone who processes personal data commercially will have to take due account of data protection.
This does not only involve compliance with the rules of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the new German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG-neu). Privacy rules are also contained in numerous other laws that set out special industry-specific aspects of data protection or overlapping issues treated, for instance, in the Telecommunications Act, the Social Security Codes, the Anti Money Laundering Act, or the Payment Services Supervision Act. In addition, the so-called ePrivacy directive, which is intended to provide specific rules for data protection in e-commerce, will come soon.
Under the provisions of the GDPR, the major responsibility of any organization is no longer limited to "living" in compliance with data protection requirements – as was actually common practice in the era of the old Federal Data Protection Act – but also to be able at all times to actively demonstrate such concept as part of the so-called accountability.
