The majority of these situations worried just one individual and also centred on concerns that have no major or long-term effect on individual’s rights. The DPC would certainly prefer to prioritise instances that are likely to have the greatest systemic effect for the best number of people over the longer-term, and also to allot its investigative sources on that particular basis .
