This report was written within the framework of a comparative study from legal studies, cultural studies, and business informatics, which aims to investigate the extent to which decisions to disclose personal data are based on a cultural imprint as well as on the existing legal framework. In this report, we analyse and contextualise the functionalities and impact of data protection under the GDPR regime with a special focus on Germany. This includes German legal doctrine and relevant case law. To facilitate an overall assessment and comparison throughout the research project’s eight country focusses, this report follows a matrix approach. This is, that it contemplates the rights and duties of the involved stakeholder groups (ie disclosure, recipient, organisations, regulatory authorities, public prosecution, judiciary, and legislature) in the legal fields (civil, public, and criminal law) and examines their respective means alongside the three levels of law (substantive, procedural, and enforcement law).
Keywords: Data Protection, Privacy, Country Report, Vectors of Data Disclosure, GDPR.
