Use the following scenario to answer questions 10-14.

One Case, One Phone (OCOP) is a company that sells customizable cases for cellphones. They are based in Germany and have two physical shops, one in Berlin and one in Stuttgart. However, most of their profits come from their online shop. The website uses cookies for better performance and they collect data from customers worldwide.
They have grown and can’t keep up with the orders in their small workshop in Germany. Because of this, OCOP has contacted a Japanese factory that would be able to build the cases and then send them to the customers. To do that, they need to know the customer’s name as well as their phone model. They wouldn’t require any other data, such as credit card numbers, nationalities, or age. This data would only be stored in the German database.
OCOP has investigated the Japanese factory and has found they have never had a data breach, although they don’t follow all the principles of the GDPR.
In November 2020, the Japanese factory had to deal with a major data breach. The data of at least 500 Germans and Swiss were lost. Furthermore, data of Brazilians has also been lost.

Use the following scenario to answer questions 26-30.

Door to Door is a delivery agency. They have close partnerships with several European small manufacturing businesses and deliver delicate crafts to customers. 

When one of the manufacturing businesses receives an order, they transfer the data of the type of product and the client’s name, address, and phone number to Door to Door. The agency then passes that information on to one of their employees, who will start the delivery. The employee calls the customers to arrange a smooth delivery. 

The customers are not informed about the involvement of Door to Door, and as far as they know, the personal information they provide only goes to the small business they made the purchase from. However, each of the businesses does inform the clients that their data is used for the delivery.
