Sangong law firm is currently receiving many inquiries from concerned restaurant owners from all over Germany. Their concern is not focused against the information access to the consumer itself, but against the disclosure on the Internet. Affected companies feel thereby put in the pillory. There is also concern that the platform will be used by competitors. Especially as the platform can be regarded as a big gateway for abuse.
Since such publications on the Internet are always associated with the risk of loss of existence, or massive impairment for the affected companies, publications should be made only after a consideration of the legal interests concerned and only by the responsible authorities. The law also provides for this.
Sangong law firm therefore has doubts about the legality of the "Topf Secret" platform operated by the organisations foodwatch and fragdenstaat.
In case you are affected by this issue, you should not just accept a request for information access. Instead, you should seek professional advice in your situation. Sangong law firm has been a reliable partner to the restaurant industry in Germany for several years.
