The Dutch data protection authority, Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens, announced a 525,000 euro fine against the Royal Dutch Lawn Tennis Association, the KNLTB, over EU General Data Protection Regulation violations. The AP found the association unlawfully shared the personal information of its members with two sponsors. The data of more than 300,000 members was provided to one sponsor, while the other received information on 50,000. KNLTB has appealed the fine, claiming the data sharing was based on legitimate interest under the GDPR. "Members were extensively informed prior to the promotions and were able to easily unsubscribe," KNLTB said in a statement. (Original article is in Dutch.)
