Europe Data Protection Digest | Details emerge on appeal of WhatsApp's 225M euro GDPR fine Related reading: Notes from the IAPP Europe, 23 Feb. 2024



  • The summary of action for WhatsApp's appeal of a 225 million euro EU General Data Protection Regulation fine was published in the Official Journal of the European Union. In its filing to the Court of Justice of the European Union, WhatsApp is seeking full annulment of the penalty on various allegations of improper procedures by the European Data Protection Board, alleging the EDPB "exceeded its competence" under Article 65 of the GDPR.
  • The president of the Administrative Court of Luxembourg partially granted Amazon’s request to suspend execution of a 746 million euro GDPR fine proposed by Luxembourg’s National Commission for Data Protection. The court determined steps for Amazon to bring its advertising system into compliance with the GDPR “had not been formulated in clear, precise and free of uncertainty terms.”
  • France’s data protection authority, the Commission nationale de l'informatique et des libertés, fined Free Mobile 300,000 euros for alleged GDPR violations. The CNIL alleges the mobile telephone operator did not respond to individuals’ requests to access their personal data within required time limits and failed to secure personal data by sharing users’ passwords via email when they subscribed to an offer.
  • The CNIL also fined finance company Slimpay 180,000 euros, alleging insufficient protection of users’ personal data and improper notification of a February 2020 data breach affecting approximately 12 million people.
