The Italian data protection authority, the Garante, has fined TIM SpA 27.8 million euros for alleged violations of the EU General Data Protection Regulation. The DPA received complaints the telecommunications company made promotional phone calls without consent. The complainants either had their numbers on the Public Register do-not-call list or previously opted out of receiving phone calls from the company. The DPA estimates millions of individuals were affected by the illicit marketing practices. It also imposed 20 corrective measures on TIM, which must be implemented within times set by the agency.
