The new edition of this acclaimed book gives a fully updated overview of European data protection law affecting companies, incorporating the important legal developments which have taken place since the last edition was published. These include the first three cases of the European Court of Justice interpreting the EU Data Protection Directive (95/46), the Commission's first report on the implementation of the Directive, the Data Retention Directive, new developments in international data transfers, conflicts between security requirements and data protection, and the implementation of the Electronic Communications and Privacy Directive 2002/58 in the Member States. It also covers the recent European Court of Justice decision on the controversial export of airline passenger data to the US, and expands its European overview to include the new and acceding Member States.

The book contains comprehensive coverage of data protection law, while at the same time providing pragmatic guidance on the typical compliance issues that companies face. As globalization of the world economy continues, an increasing number of business issues with data protection implications have come to the foreground, for example, outsourcing, whistleblower hotlines and records management, all of which are covered in the book. The appendices have been expanded to include most sources which a company will need, such as the texts of relevant directives, the safe harbor principles and FAQs, and charts of implementation in the Member States of specific provisions of interest to business. Thus, the book is a single reference source for companies faced with data protection issues.

  • Fully updated new edition covers the many legal developments in the area, including the first ECJ interpretations of the EU Data Protection Directive
  • Focus on data protection compliance for companies, with practical new sections on outsourcing of data processing, records management, processing of employee data, and security breaches
  • Extensive appendices include texts of relevant directives, model contracts, and charts with Member State implementations, making this a single comprehensive reference source for EU data protection law affecting companies
  • Comparative approach taken, with a section on the interaction of EU data protection law with national laws
