CJEU & compensation claims under the GDPR

The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) further clarifies on nature and extent of compensation claims under the GDPR: providing actual evidence of damage as well as of a causal link between the damage and the respective infringement is a general necessity – a mere violation of the GDPR as such does not suffice.
