ECJ specifies right to compensation under Art. 82 GDPR in C-300/21 – Österreichische Post

In its decision of 4 May 2023 in the Österreichische Post case, the ECJ held that awarding damages under Art. 82 GDPR requires the existence of a damage, but a requirement that this damage be of a certain seriousness is incompatible with EU law. The amount of damages is to be determined under domestic law, taking into account the principles of equivalence and effectiveness of EU law.
