Saxony-Anhalt

Summary

Law: Data Protection Act Saxony-Anhalt ('DSG LSA') of 12 March 1992, as amended (only available in German here)

Regulator: Sachsen-Anhalt data protection authority ('LfD Sachsen-Anhalt')

Summary: The DSG LSA provides for derogations from the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) ('GDPR') and data protection requirements within Saxony-Anhalt. The DSG LSA is in many ways similar to the Saxon Data Protection Act ('SächsDSG') of 25 August 2003, as amended to implement the GDPR (only available in German here). Both laws are slightly more extensive than their Länder counterparts and address data subject rights and data transfers in more detail.
