Due to technical progress and increasing globalisation, a harmonisation of data protection regulations in Europe is both meaningful and necessary. The European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation, abbreviated to “EU-GDPR”, facilitates this harmonisation.
Officially published on 25.05.2018, the EU-GDPR is now applicable law in all member-states of the EU and as such replaces previous national data protection law. Nevertheless, the EU-GDPR includes so-called escape clauses in certain areas, on the basis of which the member-states may complement the EU-GDPR with additional national regulations.
