Let´s talk about "C"
No, not about the "C" in "Corona", which now, in spring 2021, after more than a year, still - as it seems - holds us captive. We really can't hear it anymore and wish that "it's over now".

GDPR - Respectful handling or scaremongering
How sustainability, transparency and commitment can be lived in practice
On 25.05.2018, the new EU Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) came into force. Hundreds of articles have already been written about it. Everyone is talking about it, some have already taken action, others are letting it slide. Rarely has the pressure of the threat of fines been formulated so early and clearly, and it affects companies and private individuals. There is a fine line between respectful behavior and the associated action on the one hand and perceived scaremongering on the other.
