Part 2: What procedures, advantages and risks do pseudonymization and anonymization entail in data protection?

What are the procedures for pseudonymization?

In the case of pseudonymization, the person responsible can use a rights and roles concept to ensure that the pseudonymized data record is not merged with the identifiers.

Anonymisierung – Chance im Datenschutz oder Risiko-Grenzfall?

Anonymization in data protection – opportunity or risk borderline? Part 1

Part 1: The concepts of anonymization and pseudonymization

Anonymization – in the context of data protection, this often means that data controllers do not have to comply with data protection regulations when further processing the data. The background to this connotation is that, according to Art. 2 (1), the GDPR only applies to personal data. Anonymized data sets are characterized by the fact that they are no longer personally identifiable. If data controllers want to evade the requirements of the GDPR, they strive to anonymize the processed data. If extensive customer data records are to be analyzed and evaluated for marketing purposes, for example, the goal is to anonymize the data records so that they no longer have to comply with data protection requirements in the course of further processing.

VG Ansbach - Eine passende Rechtsgrundlage für eine lückenlose Videoüberwachung der Trainierenden im Fitnessstudio

VG Ansbach: A suitable legal basis for seamless video surveillance of gym users?

A violation of the GDPR occurs in particular if the data is processed without a corresponding legal basis. This was the case in the present case, in that a fitness studio in Bavaria monitored the entire training area without any gaps, and collected a prohibition order from the Bavarian State Office for Data Protection Supervision (BayLDA) for this. However, the gym saw this sanction as an opportunity to take administrative action against the data protection supervisory authority itself. The Ansbach Administrative Court (VG) now ruled on February 23, 2022 (Case No. AN 14 K 20.00083) that the BayLDA, which had been sued by the gym, had legally and proportionately prohibited the video surveillance as a remedial measure under Article 58 (2) of the GDPR (paras. 43-44 et seq.). The action brought by the gym, on the other hand, was “only justified to a minor extent” (para. 26).

Abberufung nur aus wichtigem Grund? Der EuGH muss über den besonderen Schutz für Datenschutzbeauftragte entscheiden

Dismissal only for cause? ECJ decision: Special protection for data protection officers

Special protection for data privacy officers

Special protection for data protection officers with a function as advisors to a data processing entity can only be adequately met if the data protection officer can act completely independently. For this reason, his or her position in the company is particularly protected under the General Data Protection Regulation. In particular, Art. 38 GDPR states that a data protection officer may not be dismissed or disadvantaged on the basis of his/her duties. This is intended to ensure that a data protection officer is able to perform his or her auditing and advisory duties in a truly independent manner and does not evaluate data protection issues in a biased manner for fear of professional consequences.
