The guidance issued on calculating fines against corporate group revenues for GDPR violators was “an unfortunate development,” because “the hope was that the fine would be calculated over the turnover of the infringing entity only,” said Alja Poler De Zwart in the Bloomberg BNA article “Guidance Issued on EU GDPR Privacy Fines, Regulator Standards.”

Fines could in theory rise substantially above 20 million euros in cases in which data protection authorities “find it more suitable because of aggravating circumstances,” she said.
