France finds e-proctoring software fails GDPR compliance


In a preliminary ruling, the administrative court of Montreuil suspended the use of algorithmic e-proctoring software called TestWe after students at the Institute of Distant Study of the University of Paris 8 brought a legal case, assisted by La Quadrature du Net. The plaintiffs argued that the software failed to comply with GDPR because the software failed to comply with data minimisation standards and its visual and audio surveillance was disproportionate to the intended purpose. A final ruling is expected within months.
