€14,000 fine handed out to local Doctor for GDPR breach

The complainant complained that the Doctor had disclosed her personal data on Instagram without her prior consent. After investigating the complaint, it was found that her disclosure did not comply with the purpose of the prior consent which was given by the Complainant for marketing purposes, as her identity had been fully disclosed publicly.

The Commissioner issued a judgment and fined the Doctor € 14,000 on the 6th of September 2019.
