His daughter sued the woman
In the Netherlands, a court ordered a woman to remove pictures of her grandchildren from Facebook and Pinterest according to European Union Internet Privacy Protection (GDPR) regulations.
The photos were reportedly published on the internet without the permission of the children’s parents. After the woman refused to remove the photos at her daughter’s request, she sued her mother.
Now a woman is obliged to remove the photos by court order. If she does not, she will be fined 50 Euro per day (but not more than 1 thousand Euro).
The European Union General Data Security Regulation does not generally apply to information about a user’s personal life. However, the court considered that posting the photos on social networks could make them accessible to a wider audience. As a result, images can be transferred to third parties.

In 2019, the number of violations increased by 12.6% compared to the first eight months of GDPR.
