The German government has passed a new law (the Law) that will give consumer associations the right to bring claims for breaches of German data protection law. Previously German law only permitted individuals and data protection authorities to bring a claim.
The Law is aimed at those companies concerned with the commercialisation of data, such as market research and data brokering companies and credit agencies. However the German Federal Council has expressed concern over the compliance implications for such companies.
The press release is available here (German).
