About this book

This book examines the FinTech revolution from a data privacy perspective. It analyzes key players on the FinTech market and the developments in various market segments. Particular attention is paid to an empirical analysis of the privacy statements of 505 German FinTech firms and how they were adapted after the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) entered into effect in May 2018. The analysis also includes 38 expert interviews with relevant stakeholders from supervisory and regulatory authorities, the financial and FinTech industry, leading consulting firms and consumer protection agencies. By adopting this approach, the book identifies key regulatory needs, offers a valuable asset for practitioners and academics alike, and shares intriguing insights for lawyers, economists and everyone interested in FinTech and data privacy.
