Transmission blocking: Right to object to data transfers

The transfer of registration data to third parties can be objected to the municipality / office (transmission block).

According to the Federal Registration Act, you can object to the disclosure of your data for the following cases without giving reasons (transmission block):

  • Data transmission to the Bundeswehr for persons who come of age in the following year,
  • Data transfers to public religious societies,
  • information on registration data to parties, voter groups and other holders of election proposals in connection with elections,
  • Information on age or marriage anniversaries to the press, radio and elected members of state and municipal representative bodies,
  • Information about registration data to address book publishers.

However, the transmission block only applies to the registration authority at which you have informally applied for the information block.

§§ 36 paragraph 2, 42 paragraph 3 sentence 2 and 50 paragraph 5 Federal Registration Act (BMG).
