J!Cast: ECJ on the legal standing of consumer associations under the GDPR

In this new episode of the ITM Podcast, the two research assistants Owen Mc Grath and Klaus Palenberg discuss the ECJ ruling on the standing of consumer associations to sue for data protection infringements. The ECJ has ruled that even after the introduction of the GDPR, consumer associations can rely on the power norms under Sections 8(3) UWG, 3(1) S. 1 No. 1 UKlaG to pursue data protection infringements. In doing so, they can also act on their own initiative and do not need a direct mandate.
