- Ireland’s Data Protection Commission submitted a draft decision on its inquiry into Yahoo’s compliance with EU General Data Protection Regulation obligations regarding personal data processing. Deputy Commissioner Graham Doyle said the inquiry, which began in August 2019, “examined the company’s compliance with the requirements to provide transparent information to data subjects under the provisions of the GDPR.” Concerned supervisory authorities have until Nov. 24 to object to the draft decision.
- The U.K. Information Commissioner’s Office reprimanded the Department for Education over the misuse of personal data belonging to 28 million children. An ICO investigation found a database of children’s records was used by gambling companies. Commissioner John Edwards said he did not issue a warranted 10 million GBP fine “as any money paid in fines is returned to government, and so the impact would have been minimal.”
