🚨 CASE LAW UPDATE ⚖️ Case T‑557/20 European General Court (EGC) can be a true landmark decision on the question what qualifies as personal data and on the concept of pseudonymisation.

In Case T-557/20, Single Resolution Board (SRB) v European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) - Case T‑557/20 the EGC now came to the conclusion that transferring pseudonymised data may lead to anonymisation. Key question is, if the reidentification is reasonably possible for the recipient.
