Handbook on European Data Protection Law

Source: Council of Europe

From How to use this handbook:

This handbook provides an overview of the law applicable to data protection in relation to the European Union (EU) and the Council of Europe (CoE).

The handbook is designed to assist legal practitioners who are not specialised in the field of data protection; it is intended for lawyers, judges or other practitioners as well as those working for other bodies, including non- governmental organisations (NGOs), who may be confronted with legal questions relating to data protection.

It is a first point of reference on both EU law and the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) on data protection, and it explains how this field is regulated under EU law and under the ECHR as well as the CoE Convention for the Protection of Individuals with regard to Automatic Processing of Personal Data (Convention 108) and other CoE instruments. Each chapter first presents a single table of the applicable legal provisions, including important selected case law under the two separate European legal systems. Then the relevant laws of these two European orders are presented one after the other as they may apply to each topic. This allows the reader to see where the two legal systems converge and where they differ.
