On 18 May 2017, the CNIL issued a sanction in the form of a fine of 10,000 against a dental practice for breach of its patient's right to access its file and for lack of cooperation with the CNIL during the investigation process. Indeed, the dental practice had not responded to its patient's request to obtain its personal information by accessing its file and subsequently failed to respond to the CNIL's five letters requiring it to comply with data protection laws.
