Privacy International Files GDPR Complaints Against Oracle, Equifax, More

User rights group Privacy International asked for an investigation of the data collection practices of multiple data brokers, credit reference agencies, and ad-tech companies in multiple complaints filed with the data protection authorities from France, Ireland, and the UK.

Moreover, the complaints are filed against Acxiom, Oracle, Criteo, Quantcast, Tapad, Equifax, and Experian, and are urging the petitioned data protection authorities to "protect individuals from the mass exploitation of their data."

According to Privacy International, their "complaints target companies that, despite exploiting the data of millions of people, are not household names and therefore rarely have their practices challenged."

The complaints are related to the companies' way of collecting the data of millions of users for creating profiles.
