That is indeed the federal act which applies to public agencies
under federal law and (obviously with partly different standards)
private bodies; there are also Laender privacy acts which apply
to public agencies under Laender law.
If you scroll down to section 5.3 on the page
you will find some information on the Federal Constitutional Court
decision in the 1983 national census case (that's where the
'informational self-determination' is from).
Coming back to Whois issues:
I would be very interested to hear about registrars who
offer registrations with "its own contact details in lieu of
registrants' personal information, provided that it accepts
liability for any harm caused by wrongful use, and that it
promptly discloses the identity of the true holder upon
reasonable evidence of actionable harm." Do they exist,
and if so, how much do they charge? Does anyone know?
