In the rejection decision of February 11, 2019, GZ: DSB-D123.463/0005-DSB/2018, the data protection authority had to deal with the complainant’s legal capacity in data protection proceedings due to the fact that he was a minor. The data protection authority came to the conclusion that the complainant has limited capacity for legal proceedings due to his age (Section 170 (2) of the Austrian Civil Code); however, this capacity for legal proceedings is limited to proceedings relating to the property left to him at his free disposal or relating to income from his own earnings – i.e. to proceedings relating to the property left to him at his free disposal. is limited to matters of property law. However, the complainant does not have the legal capacity to conduct data protection proceedings before the data protection authority. In the matter, the complaint was subsequently approved by the father with custody; however, the order to remedy defects sent to the complainant for the attention of his father was only answered by the complainant himself. Since the minor complainant is not capable of litigation and thus his own declarations of intent vis-à-vis the authority do not trigger any legal consequences, the data protection authority’s order to remedy deficiencies was not complied with, which is why the complaint was rejected pursuant to Section 13 (1) of the Austrian Data Protection Act. 3 AVG had to be rejected.
