The privacy commissioner of Niedersachsen, has presented the 22nd activity report of her office for 2013-14. The report, totalling 196 pages, shows that the use of personal data covers all areas of life. The report criticises surveillance by security services, cameras on buses and trains, the networked car and the use of webcams for commercial purposes in tourist areas. On the other hand, it endorses privacy-by- design as profitable for both companies and state authorities.
