As the Deputy is aware, the Data Protection Commission (DPC) is the national independent authority responsible for upholding the fundamental right of individuals in the EU to have their personal data protected.

I can confirm that the Data Protection Commission is currently engaging with the company/s in question in relation to the issues raised in the recent media coverage.
