The Danish Data Protection Agency has published new guidelines on the calculation of fines for violations of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and the Danish Data Protection Act.

The purpose of the new guidelines is to increase transparency regarding the fines. They will be continuously updated according to new case law.

The fines have been set based on the following:

  • Basic amount identified and adjusted in accordance with the size of the Company;
  • Adjustment based on specific assessment of the nature of the violation;
  • Adjustment based on aggravating and mitigating circumstances; and
  • Adjustment for the maximum fine level and ability to pay;
