Watchdog warns sites to toe line on data privacy
At yesterday's introduction of the Data Protection Commission's website, www.dataprivacy.ie, its commissioner, Mr Joe Meade, said: "We are not trying to catch people out, but to ensure that they are complying with data protection rules."
He says he intends to use his full legal powers to enforce compliance by organisations - including websites - that collect and hold data on individuals.
The commissioner plans to name in his report to the Oireachtas any organisations not complying with the existing Act and the Data Protection Directive, which comes into force early next year.
