Handbook on European Data Protection Law - 2nd edition

Source: European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA)

From the Foreword:

This handbook on European data protection law is jointly prepared by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) and the Council of Europe together with the Registry of the European Court of Human Rights. ...

The aim of this handbook is to raise awareness and improve knowledge of data protection rules in European Union and Council of Europe member states by serving as the main point of reference to which readers can turn. It is designed for non-specialist legal professionals, judges, national data protection authorities and other persons working in the field of data protection.

With the entry into force of the Treaty of Lisbon in December 2009, the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU became legally binding, and with this the right to the protection of personal data was elevated to the status of a separate fundamental right. A better understanding of Council of Europe Convention 108 and EU instruments, which paved the way for data protection in Europe, as well as of the CJEU and ECtHR case law, is crucial for the protection of this fundamental right.

    Companies know that compromising privacy is bad for business, which is why Microsoft is challenging official disclosure demands in the United States courts. Meanwhile a United States congressional thinktank has concerns about the protection of personal financial records, and a British survey shows just how much customers will punish companies that play fast and loose with their data. But has the pendulum now swung too far in the privacy direction? One survey suggests that the protectionist barriers against digital trade could cause a measurable contraction in gross domestic product - but governments know that privacy wins votes.
