The Icelandic Data Protection Authority has ruled Icelandic Health Insurance was right to request child custody verification in exchange for access to a child's personal information. The case presented to the DPA involved a complaint from a data requester regarding the insurance company's verification policy, which called for either consent from a custodian or the presentation of a custody certificate. The DPA affirmed IHI's actions based on the complainant's lack of a family number on the National Registry in Iceland, which would authorize access to the child's data.
