I signed up for an online streaming service similar to Netflix a month ago, and just now tried to delete my account. Customer servicer told me it can't be done, that the only thing they can do is suspend payments so I'm not charged. All of this is allegedly in their Terms of Service, which I agreed to. Doesn't this violate GDPR and if so, what can I do to permanently close my account?

It has now been one year since the GDPR went into effect. And a lot has happened in that year! For example:

  • many organizations have started to take data protection seriously for the first time
    • others, like Facebook, are continuing to skirt the law
    • and the amount of cargo cult compliance you see is incredible
  • turns out, supervision authorities aren't trying to slap maximum fines on minor infractions
  • there is still a lot of misinformation about the scope of the GDPR, e.g. where it applies or what rights data subjects have
  • what has not happened is any meaningful progress on an ePrivacy regulation :(

What notable effects do you see so far? What successes and problems are there? What did the GDPR do right, what could it have done better? Discuss!

Out of curiosity, for those of you that are DPOs of Multi Academy Trusts, or multiple schools, how many hours a week are you paid to be a DPO? What does your working day consist of?

I have been asked by my new employer to complete a candidate screening. During the questionnaire I was asked to provide information for my accountant and I specifically said I do NOT consent for them To be conatced.

I have since had an email from the screening company stating that they have tried to get aceess to my information.

I called the screening company and spoke to a customer service agent who confirmed this was to be the case and that she agreed GDPR consent had been broken.

What can I do about this. I’m furious?

I have a general question.

Today it's possible for American's to hold dual-citizenship, say with Italy based on family blood lines. Should an American secure this dual-citizenship and appropriate supporting Italian passport then continue to live in the United States - are they covered by GDPR as a European citizen and therefore be afforded all the rights of privacy protection accordingly?

As we are now 1 year in, we have seen the GDPR being enforced, I would say, with babysteps. The GDPR numbers from the year is in and the total fine amounted to around €55mill with French CNIL giving Google a good €50mill fine to take the bulk. That means a pity 500.000 spread over all the other countries. I think it is an ok start, but as still there are plenty of businesses far from compliant, and the general sentiment being, "I am fine", I think they need to up the ante!

I predict that we will see more businesses being fined in the coming year, also that the fines will be bigger. The EU will lose the momentum of the GDPR and it can turn into what the data protection acts were, barely mentioned or used. I also predict that businesses still will fail to comply, even though they have had one year + to learn and understand.

The businesses that still haven't been fined have been lucky. I have worked with companies that would, before I started consulting them, be in grave breach of many of the elements of the regulation.

It is time for EU to set a standard. The Google one was expected, they need to hit something that deserves it hard so it hurts. Then maybe more people will open their eyes. There is no excuse to not try to be compliant going forward.

What are the communities thoughts?

I needed a copy of an old qualification i had lost so got in contact with a company who deal with duplicates. When the certificate arrived my address was printed as always, street followed by town then county and finally postcode. I was shocked to see my mobile number printed under my postcode. It was titled ‘contact’ as well so couldn’t be mistaken for something else. This to me isn’t cool and i will be contacting the company, but my question is does this breach GDPR? Thanks in advance
