The recent ruling of the European Court of Justice in the case Meta Platforms v. the German Fed- eral Union of Consumers Organisations and Associations acts as a starting point for some reflec- tions upon the potential of aggregate litigation in data protection law. To be truly effective, a pri- vate enforcement system of data protection law must take into account its interactions with con- sumer law. Therefore, the essay evaluates the potential of the newly adopted Dir. (EU) 2020/1828 on representative actions for the protection of the collective interests of consumers, its relationship with article 80 GDPR, and introduces the concept of “group data protection”. To conclude, the paper articulates some considerations regarding group actions and data protection in the Italian legal system.

Abstract

The recent ruling of the European Court of Justice in the case Meta Platforms v. the German Fed- eral Union of Consumers Organisations and Associations acts as a starting point for some reflec- tions upon the potential of aggregate litigation in data protection law. To be truly effective, a pri- vate enforcement system of data protection law must take into account its interactions with con- sumer law. Therefore, the essay evaluates the potential of the newly adopted Dir. (EU) 2020/1828 on representative actions for the protection of the collective interests of consumers, its relationship with article 80 GDPR, and introduces the concept of “group data protection”. To conclude, the paper articulates some considerations regarding group actions and data protection in the Italian legal system.
