Model data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­ti­on (DSGVO and DSG/revDSG)

One of the essen­ti­al and often dif­fi­cult tasks in the imple­men­ta­ti­on of data pro­tec­tion law – the DSGVO as well as the revDSG – is the editing of one or more data pro­tec­tion statement(s):

On the one hand, legal que­sti­ons ari­se, all of which are easy to ans­wer (media break yes/no? With basic infor­ma­ti­on? Infor­ma­ti­on about shared respon­si­bi­li­ties? Con­nec­tion of data and pur­po­se infor­ma­ti­on? Level of detail? etc.). On the other hand, the fac­tu­al infor­ma­ti­on requi­red for editing a pri­va­cy poli­cy is often not available or only par­ti­al­ly available.

To assist in this work, the Data pro­tec­tion teams of VISCHER and Wal­der Wyss col­la­bo­ra­ted (David Rosen­thal, David Vasel­la, Sami­ra M. Stu­der, Ber­na­dette Buche­li-May­ik, Serai­na Gub­ler, Chri­sti­ne Schwei­kard, Mari­sa di Fran­ces­co, Jonas Bae­ris­wyl and David Koel­li­ker) and have deve­lo­ped a Pri­va­cy Poli­cy Tem­p­la­te Published:

  • The tem­p­la­te basi­cal­ly covers all data pro­ce­s­sing acti­vi­ties of a typi­cal pri­va­te orga­nizati­on, inclu­ding coo­kies, but exclu­ding HR and recruit­ment. It is tail­o­red to the GDPR and the revDSG.
  • The tem­p­la­te is available in Ger­man, French and English.
  • It can be used free­ly, even commercially.
  • The tem­p­la­te must be checked, adju­sted and sup­ple­men­ted when used – it can be not tel quel be used.

It can be down­loa­ded here: Notes on the pat­tern can also be found at David Rosen­thal on Lin­ke­dIn.
