Podcast: Civil servants also have private lives

At the beginning of August, the ECJ had to rule on a Lithuanian law that required public employees to disclose private information. The ruling also has implications in Germany. Therefore, in this episode, research assistants Klaus Palenberg and Owen Mc Grath discuss the extent to which this data was allowed to be published on government websites. This question was about the limits of permissible data processing on the one hand and the scope of protection of particularly sensitive personal data on the other.

The article in the DFN-Infobrief Recht mentioned in the episode can be found here and the full text of the ruling here.
