Any company which does not comply fully with Federal Data Protection Legislation (BDSG) or the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (May 2018) can face serious damage to its image and reputation resulting from negative reporting, as well as financial loss in the form of fines and the need to make subsequent corrections.
