They are going for a fine of 10% of revenue.

Article in Norwegian fra the Norwegian Data Protection Agency: https://www.datatilsynet.no/aktuelt/aktuelle-nyheter-2021/va... The study they did last year and HN discussion: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=22043209

10% revenue is massive. But also well deserved. I hope they keep on enforcing GDPR uniformly. The US tech scene really needs this sort of accountability to step away from the dark patterns.
