Max has studied law in Vienna and California. Since 2011 he has worked on the enforcement of EU data protection law in various ways, including procedures before different data protection authorities and a class action with more than 25.000 members which is currently pending at the Austrian Supreme Court. He has succeeded in his challenge against the “Safe Harbor” system at the European Court of Justice, based on the disclosures of Edward Snowden. After the European Court of Justice has invalidated “Safe Harbor”, the European Commission is seeking to replace the old data-transfer system with the so-called “Privacy Shield”.
