The consultation programme is continuing, and more and more dates and topics are being confirmed for the coming weeks and months. The next consultation day is on the 26th August. Karina Filusch, expert in contract law and digital law, will offer help and advice on data protection and GDPR. Because of the recent ruling of the EUGh on Privacy Shields, and the continuing need for digital interactions thanks to Covid, it is worth informing yourself about data protection and alternative tools which are hosted in Europe.
