    GER: Judgment of the European Court of Justice on responsibility for data processing in the case of Facebook fan pages

    IT: No Consent, No Use: Italian citizens against marketing calls.

    The Italian data protection authority (Garante della Privacy) was alerted by private members of the public that companies operating in the dental health sector have been reaching them via telephone for marketing purposes. In certain cases the private individuals, who reached the Italian authority, were registered in the “Registro pubblico delle opposizioni”.

    EU/US: Privacy Regarded by Customers as a Business Responsibility

    Hardly a day goes by without the media reporting on a new data breach. It is becoming increasingly clear that this negative press can have a direct impact on the value of a business. As an example, Yahoo's buyer Verizon recently announced its intention to renegotiate the originally agreed purchase price following the loss of one billion customers' data at Yahoo. Consumers are also increasingly critical of corporate data leaks. 66 percent of respondents would no longer do business with a company if their account data or other sensitive information had been stolen as the result of a security breach. This is according to security firm Gemalto, which recently presented the findings of its "2016 Data Breaches and Customer Loyalty Report".
