Data Protection Day

28 January, 2009

(Dieser Artikel ist auch in deutscher Sprache verfügbar)

28 January is the European Data Protection Day. For the third time, in 2009, this date marks the anniversary of the Council of Europe's Convention 108, the first legally binding international instrument related to data protection.

This issue of the EDRi-gram is dedicated to the European Data Protection Day and marks the privacy developments in some European countries in the past year, as reported by EDRi members. It also includes a warning from major civil society groups and the EDPS on the adoption of the "voluntary data retention" in the telecom package.
