GDPR claims its first victims: USA newspapers

Apple recently met this obligation by providing a new privacy portal where EU citizens, along with those in the wider European customs union, can download a copy of all of the data holds on them.

The EU passed the GDPR almost two years ago (6 April 2016), but a 24-month grace period ends on 25 May, when enforcement effectively begins.

Regulators in the USA tried to introduce similar privacy safeguards but were stopped by lawmakers.

The Austria-based group None Of Your Business (Noyb) argues that "Tons of "consent boxes" popped up online or in applications, often combined with a threat, that the service can not longer be used if users do not consent".

But for some companies, the expense of making sure they comply with the new rules was simply too much.

The lawsuit alleges this "forced consent" amounts to a violation of GDPR, which guarantees individuals the right to consent when companies want to collect and process their personal data.

"For certain lines of services, such as Platforms, new concepts like Privacy by Design shall be understood at the earliest stage at Mindtree when we design new solutions, as well as when we engage with prospects", Carperntier added. It is likely to have a trickle-down effect on big companies, at least.
