Private Affairs: GDPR Fine Tracker Exposes The Poor Privacy Ethics Of Large Internet Companies!
The Irish Data Protection Authority (DPA) recently imposed a record fine of €1.2 billion on Facebook parent Meta Inc for unlawful data transfers to the US. In 2018, the GDPR became effective in the EEA countries. Since then, Private Affairs has tracked the penalties issued via its GDPR Fines Tracker & Statistics and publishes the relevant statistics on its website. They show that many companies are very careless with user data and have poor privacy ethics.
