I'm willing to make a $5 bet that he was attracted to a friend of a friend, and figured he'd user her car license plate in order to get her number so that he could call her. She got freaked out and reported it. I wonder how to find out more specific details on this case...
But misuse of the available databases for fun and personal gain seems to be quite rampant in the police force, for example they looked up the personal data of a pop star during the night of a concert 83 times recently .
Will be interesting to see whether some guards will be put in place (and more officers fined) to combat this behavior.
It was either an internal disciplinary action or a criminal case.
or do funds gets distributed to the affected individuals?
The fine is not for the damages.
I want to see the first company fined without an EU presence. Eg, some random US website operator.
I think nowadays dash cams might be allowed if they don't store the video unless an accident has occurred, but someone from Austria has to confirm.
I suspect they’re going to roll that back if insurance fraud increases.
I don't understand. Care to explain?
To deal with it, I’ll do a lap around that spot to make sure I didn’t hit them. That lap can result in other bumps that I then have to make sure I didn’t hit anyone during.
This can repeat for a very, very long time.
To deal with it, I have a front and rear dashcam that I can go review the footage after I park.
Of course I haven’t hit anyone, but the fear and stress that I might have is debilitating and can be for an hour.
The dashcam allows me to review footage later; or, more often, calm myself long enough to think rationally and recognize what has happened as a moment of OCD and move on.
Full disclosure: My previous diagnosis was GAD. Now I have an autism diagnosis. I use medication to feel less agitated and nervous. These work, for me, though also force me to zoom in less. YMMV.
That's the one my therapist had recommended.
I try to avoid medication, but that's a personal preference. I do hope you the best on your journey!
edit: removed a word that made my sentence mean what I didn't mean for it to mean.
And here you are, not in the EU.
Or did you mean Norway should have pursued a "winner takes all" course hinging on a tiny margin, disenfranchised about half the population, and probably caused internal political and economic turmoil for years to come?
If so, I have great news for you. There's an EU country who's about to do exactly that.
What's even better, you can up sticks and move there right now, thanks to the EU (even though you're not in the EU), to witness the glory of the aftermath of such a historic decision.
You might want to hurry though.
It would be dumb if that was what the law says, but it doesn't say that at all.
It says a company needs to be compliant if they operate from the EU or they market to the EU.
It's also not the EU's fault that people in the United States (I say this as an American) are ignorant enough to associate Norway with the EU when it's not a member. The effort involved to actively block people from viewing websites could have been pointed towards GDPR integration.
Edit: You know the real reason some American sites aren't complying? Because they looked at their European analytics and decided that it wasn't worth their effort.
If you're regularly processing personal data of EU citizens on a large scale then you damn better be doing so securely and in compliance with EU law.
• it's only occasional,
• it does not include, on a large scale, processing of special categories of data as referred to in Article 9(1) or processing of personal data relating to criminal convictions and offences referred to in Article 10, and
• it is unlikely to result in a risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons.
Most businesses don't have to worry about the second of those.
How about a risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons? Recital 75 talks about that:
> The risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, of varying likelihood and severity, may result from personal data processing which could lead to physical, material or non-material damage, in particular: where the processing may give rise to discrimination, identity theft or fraud, financial loss, damage to the reputation, loss of confidentiality of personal data protected by professional secrecy, unauthorised reversal of pseudonymisation, or any other significant economic or social disadvantage; where data subjects might be deprived of their rights and freedoms or prevented from exercising control over their personal data; where personal data are processed which reveal racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, and the processing of genetic data, data concerning health or data concerning sex life or criminal convictions and offences or related security measures; where personal aspects are evaluated, in particular analysing or predicting aspects concerning performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences or interests, reliability or behaviour, location or movements, in order to create or use personal profiles; where personal data of vulnerable natural persons, in particular of children, are processed; or where processing involves a large amount of personal data and affects a large number of data subjects.
That's pretty broad. Note that the overall structure is an "or" of six clauses, and most of those clauses are "or"s of several different kinds of data. Unless this is interpreted very narrowly, most businesses that sell to Europeans online, even if only occasionally, will fall under it, and so Article 27 will apply to them.
- 2 days to change the app code so only data necessary for the actual use case of the app is processed and stored
Unless your business is somehow is fundamentally at odds with GDPR (flashlight app to grab IDFAs and sell those) it doesn't really seem terrible. Especially so as it is in my own interest even without GDPR to minimize my risk surface in case I get hacked and user data is leaked.
Trust us! say the deciders.
