As a New normal, right now in Germany, when you dine in, you need to give your name, address and Phone number in the restaurants.
I visited couple during weekends and yesterday and mostly they have ask Customers to fill in themselves in a log sheet.
With so much noise about privacy issue , It was surprising that all personal details are available for all other customers to see!!! I just saw my colleague visited the same restaurant 2 hours ago.

2. Its not because we chose to dine in and so we give consent implicitly.
Too much of good is bad,mix some evil in it
