new data protection law* that it has imposed across Europe after it was
revealed the personal information of hundreds of people had been leaked

The legal basis for the trademark registers on the basis of international agreements is missing in relation to the "WHOIS" service claimed by the Applicant. The fundamental comparability of the respective general need for protection does not change this."
