European Commission sued by a German citizen

English

European Commission sued by a German citizen.

A German citizen is suing the European Commission for transferring citizens data from one of the Commission’s websites to the United States, in contradiction with their own passed laws.

What a twist of irony, isn't it?

"According to Europäische Gesellschaft für Datenschutz (EuGD), a Germany-based organization supporting consumers in the enforcement of legal claims over breaches of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a German consumer believes his right to the protection of personal data was violated."

Now many do not know that the GDPR does not apply to European institutions directly, but they have to follow a similar law that closely resembles the restrictive nature of the GDPR. Both sets of legislation were created with the help of the Commission.

EuGD claims that the website for the Conference of the Future of Europe is hosted by Amazon Web Services (AWS), which means that anyone registering for the event transfers their IP address to the United States.

Data transfers from the EU to the US were deemed illegal by the Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU) in the Schrems II ruling. The court decided that US data protection laws are inadequate, allowing the American authorities to access EU citizen data with little judicial supervision.

According to Thomas Bindl, the founder of EuGD, the lawsuit against the Commission is a signal for data protection in Europe, showing that everyone must adhere to the rules.
