Jim Killock, Executive Director of the Open Rights Group, said:
"It's good to see European data protection authorities take action so that users gain control of their data.
"This must be backed by strong new data protection powers, for fines based on turnover, and rights to retrieve and to delete your data."
The Open Rights Group, founded in 2005, is supported by 34,000 activists and funded by 1400 subscribers. It works to defend civil liberties in the digital world.
