Developing case law under the GDPR

Six months have passed since May 25 when the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became applicable. There are several rules in the GDPR that leave space for interpretation and implementation. Besides the general guidelines and opinions issued by the European Data Protection Board and the national data protection authorities – as Hungarian National Authority for Data Protection and Freedom of Information (NAIH) in Hungary –, decisions in individual cases can serve as compass in finding the right direction how the provisions of the GDPR are interpreted.
Of course, it takes time until the first decisions and judgments will be issued under the GDPR but we may expect more and more decisions and judgments that can shape the data protection practice.

Experience has shown that NAIH is active; several proceedings have been initiated on controlling the data processing practices of operators and assessing compliance with data protection laws and regulations.

Our colleagues constantly monitor the evolution of case law and provide information about any changes.
