The Long Arm of European Data Protection Law: Applicable Law and Competent Authorities under the Future General Data Protection Regulation

Carlo Piltz

The future General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) aims to broaden the territorial scope of European Data Protection Law. Companies residing in a country outside the European Economic Area and offering services via the Internet to Europeans will very likely have to stick to the future data protection law. What will be the main criteria for the applicability of the GDPR? Will it be possible to contractually differ from the future provisions? The presentation will highlight the most crucial changes in comparison to the current situation and it also aims at pointing out legal uncertainties under to the planned GDPR and its territorial scope. Furthermore, the presentation will concern the question of the competence and jurisdiction of the European data protection authorities in Europe.
