Official Request to the Hellenic Data Protection Authority for the issuance of legal opinion on Law 4624/2019
Today, Homo Digitalis and the Consumer Association “Quality of Life” (Ε.Κ.ΠΟΙ.ΖΩ), filed a request jointly before the Hellenic Data Protection Authority in order the Authority to issue a legal opinion regarding the newly adopted Law 4624/2019 implementing the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR) and Directive (EU) 2016/680.
The Data Protection Authority has played an active and crucial role in protecting the rights of Greek data subjects with the issuance of many decisions, opinions and guidelines, and we believe once again, they will exercise their supervisory, advisory and investigative powers.
Ηowever, in the light of Article 58 GDPR, and in order to highlight the omissions of the mentioned national law, we officially filed a request today in order the Authority to issue an opinion on the consistency of Law 4624/2019 compared to the provisions of Regulation 2016/679 and Directive 2016/680.
