⚖ CASE LAW Update: The Court of Justice of the EU clarifies compensation under GDPR Article 82 in Case C-300/21

� Today, CJEU cleared out the important questions on compensation under Article 82 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

� Among the key takeaways from the ruling are that the mere infringement of the GDPR does not automatically give rise to a claim for damages, and that the level of non-material damage incurred does not need to reach a certain threshold for a claim to be made. Additionally, the criteria for assessing the extent of damages owed under Article 82 of the GDPR is a matter for national law, subject to the principles of equivalence and effectiveness.
