Supplementary notes

CMS maintain the GDPR Enforcement Tracker, which is an overview of publicly disclosed fines and penalties issued for non-compliance with GDPR. This list is maintained as up-to-date as possible and strives to include information about every fine or penalty issued for violation of GDPR, however, the source recognizes that since not every fine is made public, this list can never be complete.

For further information about these fines and penalties, including information on the body which issued the fine, date of issuance, and articles violated, please see CMS' GDPR Enforcement Tracker.
