Data Protection Tribunal Decision

Published On:Wednesday, February 10, 2021


In its decision dated 05 February 2021, the IOM Data Protection Tribunal concluded, in paragraph 52, that the Commissioner “has responded appropriately to the complaint by refusing to act on it”

The Tribunal was also satisfied that the Commissioner “discharged the burden placed on him by Regulation 94(3) and Article 57(4) to show that [the data subject’s] latest complaint was manifestly unfounded and/or excessive.”

The Commissioner’s Office is committed to upholding the rights of individuals set out in the Applied GDPR but, at the same time, it will seek to ensure those rights are not discredited through misuse.  This case demonstrates that commitment.
