In a recent statement, the Conference of the Data Protection Officers of the Bund and the Laender called for several improvements of the General Data Protection Regulation. The Conference appealed to the trilogue partners to pay particular attention to the following issues: data economy as a goal, no weakening of the principle of purpose limitation, requirement of express consent, no limitation of information rights, better limitation of profile building, obligatory appointment of data protection supervisors in all European state agencies and private companies as well as better control of data transfers to state agencies and courts in third countries. The General Data Protection Regulation should guarantee better, or at least the same, protection standards compared to now.
