Denmark’s data protection authority, Datatilsynet, has recommended a fine of $180,000 to taxi company Taxa 4x35 for violations of the EU General Data Protection Regulation, Bloomberg Law reports. The DPA found the taxi company did not adhere to the GDPR’s data-minimization principle. While Taxa deleted the names from all its records after two years, the rest of the ride records remained intact. The DPA recommended the fine after it was discovered the taxi company continued to hold onto individuals’ phone numbers after their names were removed from the records.
