In Germany data protection has a long-standing tradition. For decades, the German Data Protection Act was considered one of the strictest in the world. Many amendments that recently became effective at the European level with GDPR did not present new territory for Germany, but in many respects served as a confirmation of existing law.
We want to take this as an opportunity to shed some light on the reasons why data protection enjoys such a significant position in Germany. For NFON, German data protection standards are a success factor in our position as one of the leading cloud service providers with German roots.
