Germany’s Data Protection Law: Trends, Opportunities & Conflicts @ Covington & Burling
Mar 11 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
Germany’s Data Protection Law: Trends, Opportunities & Conflicts @ Covington & Burling | England | United Kingdom

While Germany is the EU Member State with the largest economy and the highest population in Europe, the working of its data protection law is the most complex to understand.

Enforcement is split between the Federal level and the 16 separate Lander (state) Data Protection Authorities, and each Land has its own courts. Appeals can sometimes go to a higher federal court. In addition, regulatory traditions vary with some DPAs favouring a stricter interpretation of the law while others are more pragmatic.

Attending this one day conference will enable you to navigate this confusing landscape and understand how to take data protection law into account when doing business in Germany.

The optional afternoon roundtable will enable you to exchange experience in a confidential atmosphere with your peers, and discuss how you resolve your issues with others around the table.

  • How online advertising works, including the intricacies of real-time bidding and the interplay between the various participants in the ad-ecosystem.
  • An overview of the ideas being discussed in response to the phasing out of support for third-party cookies and the working groups and standards efforts to follow to track the post-cookie discussions.

How to Save AdTech & Direct Marketing @ Webinar
Apr 16 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

Your marketing strategy is at risk! Learn how to keep reaching your customers with lawful profiling and personalized offers.

Along with other experts, hear from Christopher Docksey, Honorary Director General of EDPS on Thursday 16 April. Register now for the free webinar.

This Webinar, Legitimate Interest MicroSegmentation-Based Direct Marketing, is Part Two of a two-part webinar series in response to the Direct Marketing/AdTech industry being “up in arms” about:

1. The Dutch DPA decision widely reported as holding that commercial interests can never support Legitimate Interest processing (Anonos believes this misrepresentation of the decision is due to people reading only a Google Translate version of the one-page summary of the ruling versus the full 40+ page ruling, which is why Anonos is making an unofficial English translation available: https://www.privacytranslations.com/Dutch_DPA_Analysis_of_Tennis_Union_Fine_For_Selling_Personal_Data); and

2. ICO attempts to do away with Legitimate Interests as a legal basis for direct marketing.

Part One of this two-part webinar series was held on 19 March, Pseudonymisation-Enabled Legitimate Interest Processing, which initially had approximately 200 registrants prior to the Internet Advertising Bureau (IAB) and the Data & Marketing Association (DMA) putting out a “call-to-arms” to their members to sign up to learn how Pseudonymisation can help save Direct Marketing and AdTech – which drove registrations to over 700 people – see FAQs (https://www.anonos.com/pseudonymisation-webinar-faq) and transcript/replay from the webinar (https://www.anonos.com/legitimate-interest-processing-webinar).
