Political communication according to the GDPR.

Our Law Firm represented a politician in the context of the investigation of the Hellenic DPA complaint on political communication issues. With great pleasure for us, the Hellenic DPA, accepted our claims according to which, the electronic communication made by the complainant to telephone numbers of people with whom he had personal contact concerned wishes, in the midst of the difficult period of the pandemic. Therefore this type of communication does not comply with the concept of “political communication” as provided for in the EU and national framework for the protection of personal data. Nicolas Kanellopoulos and Chara Zerva (Managing Partners) appeared before the Hellenic DPA with the assistance of lawyers Ira Chioni (coordinator of the GDPR team) and Antigoni Logotheti.
