Criticism of details of eu data protection proposals

The eu commission’s proposals for a new legal framework for data protection are "a good basis, on the basis of which, however, some improvements should still be made," said the federal commissioner for data protection, peter schaar. He expects the federal government to actively lobby for improved data protection in the upcoming EU consultations, schaar explained.

Federal minister of the interior hans-peter friedrich declared that "if necessary, a fundamental review of national and european data protection law" was necessary. We must now succeed in making data protection law simpler and more effective in the course of the upcoming negotiations at EU level. However, with a view to the future "exchange of data in the security sector," he sees … Serious problems in the effective performance of security tasks" if the EU commission’s proposals are implemented.

Federal consumer protection minister ilse aigner (CSU) said it was important to have common european data protection standards "with a global appeal. The high level of data protection achieved in germany must be preserved.

For the greens, party leader renate kunast explained that the draft was heading in the right direction: "data protection and the digital world must be brought together."The "right to be forgotten" contained in the proposals is the right approach when it comes to deleting content from the internet.

On the other hand, the federal chairman of the pirate party, sebastian nerz, criticized the right to be forgotten on the internet emphasized by EU commissioner viviane reding as apparently "an almost naive understanding of technology. The planned european amendment is to be welcomed in principle, but in parts it is technically unfeasible and completely out of the question. When the new standard finally comes into force, the technology on the internet will have long since developed further.

Gisela piltz, spokeswoman on domestic policy for the FDP parliamentary group, also criticized: "unfortunately, the brussels proposals are already outdated in some places before they have taken effect at all."In the face of digital data streams, national regulations alone could no longer effectively guarantee the protection of personal rights.

At deutsche telekom, data protection officer claus-dieter ulmer explained that for an international company, harmonization within europe was an advantage that should not be underestimated. "Systems, platforms and business models can finally be set up internationally without having to develop different and cost-intensive solutions based on national legislation."

This was buried in the federal association of digital economy (BVDW) also the data protection expert thomas schauf. However, "the apparently planned extreme expansion of the concept of personal data" is problematic."If the user is confronted with an "inflation of consent requests" even for technical data, this is hardly in his interest. The president of the IT trade association bitkom, dieter kampf, also opposed "turning the web into an obstacle course".
