@Korev - I think the fine is reasonable as Knuddels apparently copped a mea culpa and fixed the problem (the real intent here). The idea of having a massive fine available is for the Zuckerbergs of the world who did not make dumb mistake but don't care about protecting user data. For the dumb mistakes that are fixed, a mild fine for being stupid. For the Zuckerbergs, bankrupt the bastards.
