The Data Protection Authority of Schleswig-Holstein has issued an information leaflet on privacy issues in the context of the resident registration law of the Bund and the Länder. The leaflet provides citizens with information on two main questions: “What data is being processed in the register of residents?” and “To which kind of data transfers can a citizen lawfully object?” In basic terms, registration offices process personal data such as an individual’s name (current and previous), birth date, nationality, previous addresses, family status, date of moving into and moving out of their home. Under specific circumstances, they can transfer them to private or public entities upon request or automatically. The last page of the leaflet sheet contains a pre-formulated citizen objection to such data transfers.
