The Data Protection Commissioner (DPC) has published her final Annual Report covering the period of 1 January 2018 to 24 May 2018.  The Report includes some interesting case-studies, such as the prosecution of a company for sending marketing emails to work email addresses. It also discusses litigation to which the DPC was a party to this year, including the case of Nowak v DPC, where the High Court followed the CJEU’s decision in YS v Minister voor Immigratie & Ors, finding that a controller exercises some discretion in regard to how to respond to an access request.
