10/07/2018 CJUE- The data protection regulation applies to religious communities

Co-responsibility of a religious community (Jehovah’s witnesses) and its preaching member: preaching by door-to-door is not an exclusively personal and domestic activity of each preacher, which would allow them to escape from the regulation, since it goes beyond their private sphere. The joint responsibility does not necessarily presuppose that each actor has access to personal data: the community organizing, coordinating et encouraging preaching by its members participates in determining the purpose and the means of the treatment.
