The Municipality of Reykjavík has been fined nearly EUR 36,000 for violation of the GDPR. In April 2021 the Icelandic Supervisory Authority (SA) was notified that one of Reykjavík’s elementary schools was obtaining consent from parents for processing of personal data of students using the Seesaw educational system, which is an American cloud-based service. The Icelandic SA subsequently examined on its own initiative the use of the Seesaw educational system by elementary schools in Reykjavík.
