Re: Let the fines begin!

It's 2% and that's only after repeated naughtiness.

The penalties that can be handed out under GDPR start low but increase for every repeat offence so an accident will get a slap on the wrist and a small fine, but regular "accidents" will attract the full force of the law - Assuming the local regulators (ICO - I'm looking at you) are up to the task.
