@Tryphon That one's easy enough: authorities don't review compliance spontaneously (high cost for no gain), but fine / try those found non-compliant (some chances of getting some money out of it).
@aaribaud okay, and how/by whom are they “found” to be non-compliant?
@Tryphon Same as for just about any infraction / misdemeanour / felony / etc: by getting caugh or at least exposed.
Of course, one needs to catch or expose them. But that's nothing new: every legal system on Earth, and probably elsewhere, relies on the infraction etc. being discovered. At least, now, when some company handles our data carelessly, said carelessness is a breach of law -- that's some progress.
