Norwegian DPA launches investigation into Disqus

The Norwegian data protection authority has launched an investigation into Disqus for allegedly collecting information about Norwegians through comment areas of websites without proper information.

DPA noted that in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), data processing must be legal and transparent and that, in light of this, collecting data without providing prior information is problematic. DPA stated that it has sent a letter to Disqus requesting answers on the investigated practices.
