  1. The data protection commission in Ireland is very weak, they have no accountability as they are independent of the state,(although funded by them) their mantra is to represent the rights of individuals, but they really represent the protection of organizations , when met with a complaints from data subjects that may be politically sensitive , they fob off the data subjects stating their claims have no weight ,and keep no records of the fob offs , but use these to boost their stats to how many complaints they receive per year , the DPC are a waste of money to tax payers just looks at the costs to the state in the
    Max Schrems and Peter Novak cases that the DPC said they have no case , it was just that these guys could hang tight and fight the DPC , look how the DPC messed up the Alan Shatter case too, if your an organization the DPC likes you will get away with almost any breach , ibec ,Yahoo it's public that firms lobbied the DPC Ireland .
