Data Protection Foundation (Stiftung Datenschutz) Advisory

The CDU/CSU and FDP have nominated their candidates for the Supervisory Board: SPD and the Green Party decided not to present nominees.

In July 2012, the Bundestag voted in favour of establishing a data protection foundation, „Stiftung Datenschutz“. The foundation is responsible for developing data protection measures in close cooperation with the private sector, data protection experts and members of civil society. Once established, it should function as a consumer organisation to provide reliable information and educate consumers on data protection.

The opposition parties, SPD and the Green Party, however, oppose the current structure of the organisation. Both decided not to present candidates for the advisory board. The reason put forward is that the Stiftung Datenschutz is dominated by private sector interests, which poses a conflict of interest for the organisation’s consumer oriented mission. The Green Party’s internet expert, Konstantin von Notz, suggested that the Stiftung Datenschutz should focus primarily on educating users.

In addition, the joint assembly of federal and regional data protection officers (Konferenz der Datenschutzbeauftragten des Bundes und der Länder) also decided not to present candidates for the advisory board. The chairwoman of the joint assembly, Dagmar Hartge, said that the board membership would pose a risk to the neutrality of the data protection officers due to the influ-ence of the private sector.

Meanwhile the CDU/CSU and FDP presented their candidates. On Thursday, November 29 2012, the Bundestag will vote on whether the nominees are accepted to the advisory board of the Stiftung Datenschutz. The candidates include: Stephan Mayer (CSU), Rita Pawelski (CDU), Nadine Schön (CDU), Dr. Patrick Sensburg (CDU) and Gisela Piltz (FDP).
