The Danish data protection authority, Datatilsynet, fined staffing and recruitment company JobTeam DKK 50,000 for not complying with EU General Data Protection Regulation requirements for processing personal data. The DPA said JobTeam deleted data after a request for the information was made and before the company responded. (Original post is in Danish.) Meanwhile, the Belgian Data Protection Authority fined an unnamed social network 50,000 euros in consultation with 23 DPAs from European countries for collecting and using personal data through its “invite contacts” function.
Update May 26, 2020: This news summary had mistakenly reported that it was the Norwegian data protection authority that issued the fine, when it was actually the Danish DPA.
