H&M fined $41 million by Germany for data protection breaches

Sweden’s retail clothing company H&M has said that German authorities have imposed a fine of $41 million for internal data security breaches at its customer service center in Nuremberg

German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung last year reported that the State Data Protection Commissioner in Hamburg had launched a probe into H&M management unlawfully sounding out workers about their personal life and storing the details.

H&M said in January the breaches found were unacceptable and it was cooperating with the authorities.
