On February 4, 2015, the German government adopted a draft law to improve the enforcement of data protection provisions that are focused on consumer protection. The draft law enables consumer protection organizations, trade associations and certain other associations to enforce cease-and desist letters and file interim injunctions in cases where companies violate the newly defined protective data protection provisions for consumers.
The draft law must be approved by the Federal Parliament before taking effect.
