On October 24, 2019, Homo Digitalis following the complaint dated on 5/30/2019, lodged a new complaint to the European Commission for non-compliance with EU law, this time regarding the provisions of the Law 4624/2019 on personal data and namely with the provisions of Directive 2016/680 and Regulation 2016/679 (Reference No CHAP(2019)03059).

Through our complaint we aim to highlight the provisions of the Law 4624/2019, which draws attention on the protection of personal data subject’s rights in Greece. The intention is to improve these provisions through a direct legislative amendment.

However, we are anticipating with great interest the relevant Opinion of the Personal Data Protection Authority regarding the provisions  Law 4624/2019. We would like to mention here that earlier on the 20th of September 2019 Homo Digitalis and the Consumer Association “The Quality of Life” addressed a joint request to the DPA in order the Authority to issue a legal opinion regarding the newly adopted Law 4624/2019.
