Privacy International filed complaints against data brokers, credit-monitoring firms, and ad tech companies with the CNIL, U.K. Information Commissioner’s Office, and Irish Data Protection Commission for alleged violations of the EU General Data Protection Regulation, the Financial Times reports. The group accuses Experian, Equifax, Oracle, data broker Acxiom, and ad tech companies Criteo, Quantcast, and Tapad of GDPR infractions. Privacy International states the companies do not have a legal basis to gather the larger amounts of information they have in their possession. “Part of their business models are about fundamentally exploiting data and therefore clash with many of the provisions [of the EU General Data Protection Regulation],” Privacy International Legal Officer Ailidh Callander said.
