In Germany, over 7000 professional athletes from different sport sectors must undergo regular doping controls. As is the case with many other nations, Germany relies upon a system recommended by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) to coordinate and initiate these controls. Known as the Anti-Doping Admission and Administration System, or ADAMS for short, the system requires athletes to submit their future regular whereabouts via browser, up to three months in advance. This allows the Doping Control Officer (DCO) to be able to locate the athlete without prior notice. The flip side, however, is that, since its introduction in 2007, ADAMS has not only been severely criticized by athletes themselves for its lack of usability, but has also come under attack by data-privacy experts accusing this system of breaching multiple data privacy laws.
