Irish regulator proposes 36 mln euro Facebook privacy fine
Ireland’s Data Protection Commission (DPC) has proposed fining Facebook up to 36 million euros ($42 million) in one of more than a dozen probes it has opened into the social media giant, according to a draft decision published by the complainant on Wednesday.
The DPC proposed a fine of 28 million to 36 million euros for Facebook’s failure to provide sufficient information, according to the draft decision, published by Schrems’ digital rights group NOYB. The draft ruling described the infringements as serious in nature and criticised Facebook for a lack of transparency.
