France’s data protection authority, the CNIL, has fined Futura Internationale 500,000 euros for alleged violations of the EU General Data Protection Regulation. The DPA had received a complaint from an individual who said they continued to receive phone calls from Futura Internationale despite repeatedly asking the company to cease communications. The CNIL found the company had ignored similar requests from other individuals. Futura Internationale did not properly inform customers about its data-processing practices, according to the investigation. In addition to the violations, the CNIL asked Futura Internationale to adopt the proper measures to comply with the GDPR; however, the agency cited the company’s lack of cooperation in its decision to levy a fine.
