Durchführungsverordnung EU 2021/392 - Datenschutz und die CO2 Datenübermittlung

Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/392 – Data protection and the CO2 data transfer

One of the special challenges of a data protection officer is to be allowed to deal with what at first glance appear to be non-technical issues directly from practice. The Implementing Regulation EU 2021/392 on the monitoring and reporting of data on CO2 emissions from passenger cars and light commercial vehicles certainly falls into this area.

Kontaktdatenerfassung in Bayern entfällt in vielen Bereichen

Contact data collection in Bavaria omitted in many areas

As the cabinet in Munich announced on Oct. 12, 2021, the obligation to collect contact data will be eliminated in many areas in Bavaria as of Oct. 15, 2021.

For example, the obligation to record visitor and customer data will be dropped in the areas of gastronomy and cultural events. As far as known so far, however, the obligation to collect contact data will continue to apply to large events with more than 1000 people. In addition, the obligation will remain in clubs, discotheques and comparable leisure facilities. Likewise, the now customary contact data collection will remain in place for gastronomic offerings with dance music, for services close to the body, and in community accommodations.

Wherever the obligation to collect contact data ceases to apply, the previous legal basis on which this data processing was based also ceases to apply. This means that data controllers who previously collected contact data must check whether they are still obliged and authorized to do so. If the legal obligation to do so ceases to apply, the authorization may also cease to apply and the corresponding data processing would be unlawful in cases where there is no other legal basis.

We are happy to help our customers and anyone who wants to become our customer to check whether a contact data collection is still permitted under data protection law. Just give us a call or make an appointment with us.

Belgisches Gericht entscheidet: Verschlüsselung als zusätzliche Maßnahme beim Datenexport

Belgian court rules: Encryption as an additional measure when exporting data

The Belgian Council of State ruled on August 19, 2021 (case number 251.378) that encryption of data during data export can be an appropriate measure to ensure an adequate level of data protection. Golem.de reported on this on Sept. 17, 2021, and gdprhub.eu also dealt with it. The Belgian ruling now confirms the view of many data protection experts that encryption can be used under certain conditions to export data to insecure third countries in compliance with the law. This question had been hotly debated since the ECJ’s Schrems II ruling.
