German Court Slashes a GDPR Privacy Fine by 90%

A German appeals court has slashed by 90% a General Data Protection Regulation fine levied by the nation’s federal privacy watchdog against 1&1 Telecom over call center data protection shortcomings.

In December 2019, Germany’s Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information, or BfDI, announced a fine of 9.6 million euros ($11.3 million) – at the time, the second-largest privacy fine ever announced in Germany – against 1&1 Telecom.
