What does data protection actually protect?

The struggle over the agreement with the USA on not wanting to be spied on is of no help at all to the normal citizen. The USA still wants to spy on everything in every country, when it appears necessary to them for the security of the country and the protection of all the allies of the USA. This is a two-edged sword which the USA is waving about, since the Germans also benefit from the data gathered by the Americans and also cheat themselves due to the fact that the Americans adhere to the rules of data protection, and have thereby created a European legal interpretation which legitimises the use of data by European authorities, legitimate data usage, which still remains opaque. We must therefore ask ourselves: What is it really all about?
In this country, espionage is a criminal offence, which prohibits the bugging of the Chancellor’s mobile telephone; in the USA, everything which serves the protection of all countries is considered as legitimate. When Obama said (on ZDF) that the USA was offering to make its technical capabilities available for the protection of all countries, and wanted to look into the minds of citizens, in order to guarantee the national security of the USA and also other countries, but promised that Angela Merkel’s mobile telephone would no longer be bugged, then the Chancellor may be off the hook, but the Germans have been branded a security risk by the USA, even though we have data protection regulations which are supposed to protect the interests of the citizen, but what actually protects data protection?
The meaning of data protection is defined in Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG) (Federal Data Protection Act) “The purpose of this Act is to protect the individual from being impeded in his personal rights by the handling of his personal data.” (§1, Para. 1 BDSG). For the citizen, this legal mumbo-jumbo means: The BDSG does not protect the data of the citizen, but the citizen whose data are being processed, which is also recorded for example by the Department of Employment, the employer, libraries, spots associations, opticians, chemists and many other dealers who conduct business over the Internet etc.
For this, there is a declaration of consent, which allows the data to be recorded for certain purposes only, for example in the case of a new contract of employment, or that wages and salaries can be paid, or a new library card can be issued. These data are provided in confidence and should also be handled confidentially. However, the optician can still use the data (such as the address), to send out sales materials, and he can even pass this address on to other dealers, so that they can also send out offers. In addition to this trade in addresses, which serves for business purposes, the citizen must now also believe, since the disclosures of Edward Snowden, that the USA gathers and uses all data, and all without the consent of the citizen, so that anger is rising about the legal basis on which the USA is allowed to gather such data, because the citizen gave them for example to a company and not to the USA. And the citizen must also accept that he has become a security risk for the USA. Not a very pleasant finding.
The data protection regulations should say when data may be processed and used, and when not. In Germany, the country of Federalism. 16 state laws also apply in addition to the national Data Protection Act, although it still applies: If the Federal authorities request information, the BDSG applies; otherwise the protection rights of the states apply. It sounds simple, but it is not, because in addition to the laws, so-called data processing regulations also apply. This has often led to confusion, but the citizen is also protected, or has a chance to find out whether data protection has been infringed, because data protection is also one of the basic rights (Art. 2 Para. 1, Art. 1 Para. 1 GG).
The citizen must always find out what data is being recorded by which body (criminal investigations are partly exempted from this requirement) or which has already been recorded, to whom and why it has been disclosed and: These data must be correct. If recorded data turns out to be incorrect, it must be corrected. When the purpose for which the data was recorded has been fulfilled, the data must be deleted - the citizen also has a right to this, and also to be compensated for any mistakes caused by the body collecting the data. Every citizen may therefore refer to the data protection controlling body. These controlling bodies must investigate the complaint and inform the citizen of the results. So much for the intention and the legal basis, which is in itself contradictory, that a body dependent on the state can hardly investigate and report to the citizen independently. The Euro countries countered this contradiction with a complaint against the FRG, so that such independence could be preserved, but the work of the data protection officers is still faulty and lacking; there is hardly any cooperation with European bodies, and hardly on the way to serving the interests of the citizen, particularly since there are differences between the German and the European interpretation of data protection, which can hardly lead to fewer problem, as shown by the differences between the Data Protection Act and state laws. The confusion over the legal opinion, and the interest in such data from companies, institutions and states, will contribute to restricting the rights of the citizen, anything else can hardly be managed - neither in the USA, nor in the juggernaut of Europe, which with all its national laws hardly contributes to lessening the confusion, as long as the basic rights of the citizen, such as the consent to use of data without restriction, do not apply as the legal basis, and are acknowledged by all nations who have an interest in using the data.
