The Schleswig-Holstein data protection authority ('ULD') published, on 15 March 2023, its 2022 activity report. In particular, the activity report outlines that, compared to 2021, the number of complaints has not increased. In this regard, the activity report specifies that the ULD received 1,334 written complaints, of which a total of 1,075 complaints were processed by the same, and issued 498 consultations across the public and private sector, compared to 712 in the previous year.
