Note DSGVO

The DSGVO (General Data Protection Regulation) is on the one hand indefinite in its essential parts and on the other hand, it lifts the very uncertainty even the Basic Law of the Federal Republic of Germany in the form of fundamental rights (Article 1- 20). Massively affected here is Article 5 of the Basic Law (Freedom of Expression).

The General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) was passed in 2016 with the proviso that the nation states should adapt these in detail, each for itself, to the national circumstances. However, this did not happen although Article 85 of the GDPR clearly provides for that.

In view of the fact that the legislator has already passed the Network Enforcement Act at the federal level and the new police task law in Bavaria, it can not be assumed with regard to the GDPR that the legislator simply forgot that DSGVO was specific to the circumstances of national legislation adapt. Rather, it must be assumed that this was also planned.

The DSGVO fulfills in its essential components the principle of the unsatisfiability. This creates space to attack anyone with formal legal advice. Since May 25, 2018, it’s not even possible to make an appointment with his hairdresser without first having to read his privacy policy to the customer on the phone.

All tradespeople can expect enormous waves of complaints in the coming years. Many small and medium-sized companies will cost their lives. First, every lawsuit will be a precedent.

The only winners are the system-compliant mainstream media. The total loss of information sovereignty of the system media in recent years is largely restored by the GDPR. In connection with the Network Enforcement Act and the new police task law in Bavaria, which will almost certainly be extended in the foreseeable future to the entire federal territory, the total surveillance state since 25 May 2018 finally proclaimed.

We ask every user who feels hurt by our offer in his rights to contact us first, so that we can remedy a violation immediately. We expressly appeal to the common sense of each individual and also to their own mitigation obligation. Our intention is directed exclusively at the good and the morality, which always precedes the law.
