The data protection authorities of the Bund and many in the Lander (Branderburg, Hessen, Niedersachsen  or Schleswig-Holstein), have presented the results of their random examination of health apps and wearables from different providers. The Federal Data Protection Commissioner, Andrea Voßhoff, announced that most providers of such products did not comply with legal requirements such as adequately informing users about the processing and transfer of the data or allowing for data deletion. Many respective privacy policies proved to be too long, were difficult to understand, were not in the German language, or simply referred to the general privacy policy of the company. Since the market for health apps and wearables is booming, Voßhoff appealed to users to carefully pay attention to what happens to their sensitive data.
