German court ruling: no claims for damages for minor GDPR violations

In its recent decision of 11 June 2019, the Dresden Court of Appeals had to decide on claims for damages under Article 82 GDPR with regard to minor violations of the GDPR.

The Court of Appeals ruled that Article 82 (1) GDPR should not be interpreted in a manner that claims for damages are already triggered where the person affected only subjectively perceives inconvenience without suffering any serious impairment of their self-image or reputation. Otherwise, unconditional claims for damages would be created.
