German Government Adopts Draft Law Regarding The Enforcement Of Data Protection Law By Consumer Protection Associations

On February 4, 2015, the German government adopted a draft law to improve the enforcement of data protection provisions that are focused on consumer protection.

The draft law must be approved by the Federal Parliament before taking effect.
