Data protection / Privacy
New technology has increased the potential for personal data to be exploited for commercial or political purposes. At the same time, there is a strong European tradition for giving citizens control over their own personal data. Today’s data protection regulations have not kept pace with the enormous developments in the use of personal data that we have seen over the past 20 years. For this reason, the EU has adopted a new set of rules to protect our digital privacy, the General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR.
