Poland’s data protection authority has issued its first fine under the EU General Data Protection Regulation, TechCrunch reports. The Personal Data Protection Office fined digital marketing company Bisnode 220,000 euros for its failure to fulfill its data subject rights obligations under Article 14 of the GDPR. The DPA has given Bisnode three months to reach out to 6 million people in order to meet its Article 14 information notification requirements. “The decision is seen as radical, as it interprets Article 14 literally,” Oxford University Center for Technology and Global Affairs Research Associate Lukasz Olejnik said. “UODO has taken a very principled position, arguing that the company business model is fully based on processing scraped data, and that the company has taken a decision willingly.”
