HANDBOOK ON EUROPEAN DATA PROTECTION LAW
The handbook on European data protection law is jointly prepared by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights and the Council of Europe together with the Registry of the European Court of Human Rights. It is the third in a series of legal handbooks jointly prepared by the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights and the Council of Europe. The Handbook presents legal framework of the European Union and the Council of Europe, including the case law on personal data protection of the European Court of Human Rights and of the Court of Justice of the European Union.
The aim of the handbook is to raise awareness and improve knowledge of data protection rules in European Union and Council of Europe member states by serving as the main point of reference to which readers can turn. It is designed for non-specialist legal professionals, judges, national data protection authorities and other persons working in the field of data protection.
