Abstract

This chapter reflects on the conclusions of the country-specific chapters and offers a detailed summary of the most noteworthy variances in national legislation across the ten European countries involved in the study. This comprehensive cross-European analysis examines key aspects of data protection legislation and specifically the right of access including the development of jurisprudence and case law in each country. The chapter draws attention to crucial delineations in the way that national legislation has interpreted Directive 95/46/EC and considers the impact of these differences upon data subjects’ ability to exercise their informational rights.
