Data protection in Germany?

Welcome to your experienced experts for data protection in Germany according to GDPR

Master the challenges of the EU General Data Protection Regulation GDPR professionally

Are you prepared?

We will make you fit to meet the legal requirements in Germany

If you do business in Germany as a foreign company, you are fully subject to German data protection laws. In practice, there are many pitfalls that can quickly and unintentionally violate data protection.

When the EU General Data Protection Regulation became effective May 25, 2018 the already comprehensive data protection rules in Germany have been further tightened. A promising economic success may be easily threatened by the significant penalties.

Data protection in Germany faces the following challenges and dangers:

  • Extensive information obligations for the collection, processing and use of data
  • Intensive documentation obligations for data processing processes and measures to implement data protection
  • Many minimum contents for contracts for order processing
  • High demands on the designs and development of software (privacy by design and privacy by default)
  • Many rights of the data subject (information, correction, deletion and blocking of data)
  • Many accountability to demonstrate data protection measures
  • Very high fines (up to 4 % of worldwide annual sales) for the purpose of deterrence

That sounds complicated? Yes, that is. That is why we are here to help you master the data protection requirements.

Contact us. Our team of experienced lawyers and certified data protection experts helps you throughout Germany to avoid dangers and to legally implement and comply with legal requirements in your company and in the public.

EU Representatives According to Art. 27 GDPR

Extensive Experience in Dialogue with Authorities

Companies located outside the European Union which sell goods or services or collect personal data within the borders of the European Union are required to appoint a representative based in the EU. This also applies to companies that collect and process the data of EU citizens for online use, the use of online media and advertising. Providers of free websites and apps are likewise subject to the requirement to appoint an EU representative.

Such a representative needs to be defined by the controller responsible for data processing. This representative acts as the competent contact partner for supervisory authorities and data subjects in relation to all data protection matters. According to Section 44 of the German Data Protection Act (BDSG), this representative is also an authorised recipient for notifications in civil-law proceedings concerning legal actions due to an infringement of data protection provisions.

The representative must be based in one of the member states in which the data subjects, whose data is processed or whose behaviour is observed, are located. They need to be appointed in writing. Failure to appoint a representative despite this legal obligation can result in severe fines.

It is particularly advantageous to appoint a service provider for data protection as representative, who has a legal background and experience dealing with supervisory authorities for data protection.

Here, the highly experienced S-CON team is at your side. S-CON provides cost-effective support as an EU representative according to Art. 27 GDPR.

At S-CON, our team comprising specialist lawyers with excellent English proficiency and more than 20 years of data protection experience will be happy to assist you. Many investigation procedures have been performed by supervisory authorities in the role as data protection commissioner for the investigated companies, without a fine ever having been imposed on a client.

We offer you many benefits:

  • Reducing all costs down to the necessary minimum
  • Conserving internal resources
  • High expertise and experience in data protection and in handling supervisory authorities
  • Legally compliant representation and adherence to the requirements
  • Accommodating service and fair partnership

External data protection officer: Predictable and resource-saving

Due to the high demands on data protection, it is advisable to think about the appointment of an external data protection officer. Because of the extensive obligations also extensive rights of an internal data protection officer arise, which can be particularly resource-consuming.

ISMS ISO 27001 – Information Security Management System: Build effective protection

Securing information processes is the core of the survivability and success of companies and organisations. Whether by intent or negligence: information loss can quickly have ruinous consequences. But it does not have to come so far.

With the introduction of an Information Security Management System (ISMS), rules and procedures for the definition, control and ongoing improvement are established to ensure the information security in your organisation on a permanent basis.

A reliable ISMS questions and regulates not only questions of purely technical IT security, but also organisational, personnel and structural issues.

As ISO 27001 certified ISMS security officers and auditors, we can help you competently with the introduction of an information security system.

Trainings: Always up-to-date

Especially in data protection and information security, the right and legally compliant know-how is of great importance. Within the scope of trainings, we pass our knowledge and fill your employees and decision makers in on the importance and the correct processes of data protection and information security.

We also develop customised training concepts that are precisely adjusted to your requirements. Feel free to contact us and we will present you your individual training solution.
