Bulgaria fines CEZ
Bulgaria’s Commission for Personal Data Protection (CPDP) has fined electricity distribution company CEZ for continued breaches of privacy protection regulations, reports the Sofia Echo. Last year the commission ordered CEZ to stop requiring proof-of-right-to-use documentation from new clients. “They do not need this data,” said CPDP member Krassimir Dimitrov. Before actually levying the 100,000 Leva fine, the commission will again investigate CEZ to see if the practice has been stopped. The CPDP is investigating other Bulgarian companies for the unnecessary collection of data. Recently, the commission ordered Sofiyska Vodka to stop over-collecting.
