GDPR does allow the processing of personal data, provided there is a permission of the data subject and/or a justification by law. Personal data needs appropriate safeguards and deletion policies. You might want to get specific legal advice for the country you're in. I'd ponder briefly if dietary preference constitutes either medical or religious affilation ...

What does: "concessions have been extended" mean in this context? Unless the law at issue gives an explicit definition of the term, in the context of contracts, bankruptcy, etc. "concession" means something a party grants to another. Since the excerpt is about "meeting financial commitments", the term "concession" can ...

This answer is as to the U.S. only. The framework of public law (i.e. the rights of people v. the government) is very different in some E.U. countries from the U.S. For example, French legal rules regarding when government action gives rise to a right to compensation are much more generous than in the U.S. If the government (let's say in the US . . . ) ...

No Always assuming that the government has operated within the limits of its powers or, at least, that if they have exceeded those powers the excess was in good faith. First, there is the issue of sovereign immunity. Basically, a government can be held liable only when it consents to be held liable. Most governments never waive this with respect to their ...

This will depend on the details of the constitution. Generally, governments reserve sweeping powers for use in emergencies, often without automatic compensation. In Germany, one of the EU countries you mentioned, the legal remedy for someone who feels unjustly singled out by a lockdown measure is to file a lawsuit against the measure, not to send a bill for ...

I can imagine that this is true, but is it actually legally spelled out and motivated? Or is it just what tends to typically happen, for "other reasons"? . . . Is this actually a legal thing? Something which is in a legally binding "marriage contract" (I don't know if that even exists)? If so, what's the reason for this? It isn't really ...

united-states In the United States, divorce is a matter of state law, and each of the 50 states has slightly different laws. But in general, it is not true as a matter of law that divorced women are awarded everything but "a mattress and a TV". A small number of states, of which the largest are California and Texas, are community property states. ...

This kind of hashing is not anonymization, so your hashed IP addresses do likely count as personal data. It is good that you're using hashing as an added safety measure, but it's still personal data and as thus subject to the GDPR. Why is it personal data? By definition, you are using these hashes in order to re-identify visitors. For this purpose, hashing ...

If you sell something that isn't a circuit breaker and claim that it is a circuit breaker, then at the very least that's covered by fraud statutes, if not more specific laws. One could face even more serious consequences, though. After all, the whole point of circuit breaker is to keep Bad Things from happening. If your fraud results in those Bad Things ...

TLDR: it's illegal to BUY it. It's illegal to USE it. Know your suppliers. That's certainly an interesting question, in light of how the market has changed in recent years, particularly due to Amazon/eBay, but even moreso due to Amazon Fulfillment and competitors. Over on diy.se, this is a constant vexation, because we see people buy crud like this all the ...

Yes, they’re called “switches” Or, more formally a disconnector - you can see some from the range of this purported circuit breaker starting on p 15 of this. Disconnectors have their application when circuit protection is provided by other means - fuses for example. The video does say this was associated with a generator and that’s an application where ...

It's just been answered by the Court of Appeal. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-55953247 The rationale for the decision is: Interception of messages renders them unable to be used as evidence. But the Encrochat system used end to end encryption, and the captured messages were in plain text and not decrypted by authorities. Therefore the captured evidence data ...
