Applicable Material Law

Lower Saxony has a Data Protection Act (Niedersächsisches Datenschutzgesetz - NDSG).

The NDSG makes (corresponding § 1(1)NDSG) complementary arrangements to the provisions of the GDPR and states furthermore data processing on which the GDPR shall be applicable (§ 2 NDSG) in its first part. It is more specific to the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz - BDSG). So the GDPR is applicable, if there is no more specific rule contained in the NDSG nor the BDSG nor another specific Law.
