The “Netzwerk Datenschutzexpertise”, an association of German data protection experts, has issued an 18-page report on the right of consumer associations to issue proceedings against companies for breaches of privacy legislation, a right that has existed in Germany since 2016. The aim of the report is to foster public debate on privacy issues. The report concludes that this right of standing has not and would not lead to a wave of lawsuits in the future, because consumer organizations lack the necessary resources. However, according to the report, the right of standing constitutes an important instrument for repairing enforcement deficits in privacy law and does not compete with the tasks of data protection authorities.
