Each EU member state has its own data protection authority. You can reach out to whichever authority you choose with questions and complaints — it doesn’t matter where the company you’re complaining about has its headquarters. Filing a complaint is free of charge for you as a consumer.
In Germany, there is a data protection authority for each federal state, so you can contact these “commissioners for data protection and freedom of information” in your federal state directly. At the federal level, the Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information is another point of contact.
Below is a list of all data protection authorities in Germany and the EU. If available, links to their complaint forms or contacts are included and some national authorities even offer these links in English as well.
