The Personal Data Protection Act was replaced on 25 May 2018 by the General Data Protection Regulation (AVG). From that moment on, the same privacy legislation applies throughout Europe, which brings about a strong expansion of the privacy rights of those involved, while companies and governments are given more obligations. In addition, privacy regulators are given more powers to take action against violators of the rules, including the imposition of fines.

- processor agreement
- protocol for reporting data breaches
