Hamburg's data protection authority, the Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information, announced a 35.3 million euro fine against retailer Hennes & Mauritz for unlawful employee-monitoring practices. HmbBFDI's investigation found the company had kept detailed logs of employees' living situation dating back to 2014. Several supervisors allegedly compiled information, including personal and family details, through individual talks and other informal conversations. The collection of employees' information was revealed in October 2019 due to a system error that allowed open access to the logs.
