Bounty pregnancy club fined £400,000 over data handling

Bounty pregnancy club fined £400,000 over data handling Pregnancy club Bounty UK has been given a £400,000 fine for illegally sharing the personal information of more than 14 million people.

The fine was issued by the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) in what it said was an "unprecedented" case.

Bounty compiled personal data but did not tell people that it was shared with 39 other organisations, said the ICO.

Bounty said it "acknowledged" the ICO's findings and had now made changes to how it handled member data. BBC News
