Apple fined in the Netherlands

Apple today fined €5 million by the Dutch antitrust authority on Monday for failing to comply app store regulations. Recall that Apple was ordered to allow Dutch dating app providers to use alternative payment methods.

Apple January 15 declared that she complied with the December order Office of Consumer and Market Affairs (ACM), but on Monday the regulator said Apple had not done so.

“Apple failed to meet the requirements on multiple counts,” ACM said in a statement.

“The most important of these is that Apple has failed to adjust its terms and conditions, leaving dating app providers unable to use other payment systems. For now, dating app providers can simply express their “interest.”

It is known that Apple is filing an appeal against the December decision of the ACM.

The ACM said it has informed Apple of the fine and that the company will be subject to a weekly fine of between 5 and 50 million euros until it complies with the requirements.
