Notes to editor
The main legal source of data protection in Germany is the Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz or BDSG), which implements Directive 95/46/EC on data protection. Additionally, each German state has a data protection law of its own. The collection, processing and use of personal or corporate data are carefully regulated within Germany and these restrictions impact the way in which all internal or regulatory investigations should be conducted.
