DORDA IP/IT and data protection experts Axel Anderl, Nino Tlapak and Alona Klammer supported Lernsieg Mobile Media GmbH in the relaunch of the mobile app “Lernsieg”, which was previously taken offline after a short time following massive counter-campaigns in autumn 2019.
Vienna, 2 April 2020 – DORDA has comprehensively assisted Lernsieg Mobile Media GmbH with advice on data protection issues relating to the admissibility and relaunch of the “Lernsieg” app. In autumn 2019 the app was taken offline after only three days due to massive counter-campaigns. As a result of the media coverage, the Austrian Data Protection Authority initiated an official examination to determine the admissibility of the application under data protection law.
“Our Digital Industries Group is specialised on legally enabling innovative digital solutions and business cases. We are pleased that we were able to settle the data protection issues surrounding ‘Lernsieg’ and to make the app’s relaunch possible. This is a showcase of our respective experience and expertise” says Axel Anderl about the successful assistance. “The app leads to more transparency in the school system and rewards the dedicated teachers and schools who receive corresponding positive feedback. This is a motivation for all the hard-working educational staff and will contribute to an increase in quality in schools – on a sound data protection basis.”
