TechCrunch reports on the work startup company Fidzup had to do to comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation after it was warned of consent violations by France’s data protection authority, the CNIL. The agency told Fidzup it could not rely on data processors to gather consent on its behalf. Fidzup responded by creating its own consent management platform. While Fidzup Co-Founder and CEO Olivier Magnan-Saurin’s company solved their GDPR problems, he noted regulators have yet to target major players. “What’s sure is that the CNIL started to send warnings not to Google or Facebook but to startups,” Magnan-Saurin said. “Because maybe it’s easier to see I’m working on GDPR and everything but the fact is the law is not as complicated for Facebook and Google as it is for the small and European companies.”
