YOUR SENSITIVE DATA IN UNKNOWN HANDS
I figured out that one of the biggest data processors in Germany, which supposedly has over 40 million records of personal data has severe problems complying to GDPR. The entity rejects any specific requests about whom they give access to your sensitive information. The organisation even refuses to reveal the location of its contracted data custodians.
They know all the addresses where you ever have lived, they know your bank account, your birth date and many other sensitive information. Also Metadata that they create without your consent.
I already contacted excellent lawyers to help me with this issue. But it does seem very complicated and tedious. One might think that you can force an entity to comply but I learned the opposite.
Anyway, if this blows up, you’ll probably hear it in the media. Updates are to be expected in 2022.
