Your anti-awards, delivered immediately

The Irish Data Protection Commission (DPC) has been resolutely working up to this for years, now their turn has come: They receive a well-deserverd BigBrotherAward for Lifetime Achievement. This award is personally delivered in Dublin. Other awards go to the Bundesdruckerei (“Federal Printer”, a state-owned company producing identification documents), Klarna, The Federal Criminal Police Office and Lieferando (a German food delivery company). A member of Lieferando’s workers’ council accepts the award in place of the company.
