europe seals deal rules for digital

By

The European Union has now agreed to rules on how to protect personal data online. In what is called the “sealing of the online transaction data”, the EU has given up on the idea of a privacy-by-design approach to internet technology. Instead, it will ensure that internet companies will have to keep a record of the personal data of their users, and that users will be able to “opt in” to give away their information should they want it to.

That’s probably going to be good news for those of us who need privacy from our online purchases, but it might be bad news for those of us who want to avoid being hit by a ransomware attack.

The problem is that if these companies have to keep a record of our personal information, then they will be able to do so with no privacy whatsoever. The problem is that if internet companies are forced to keep a record of our personal information, then they will be able to sell it to advertisers that don’t respect the privacy of their customers (and that is also not great for those of us who want to be anonymous).

If these internet companies dont care about privacy, then they will get a free pass from the European Commission if they do nothing to stop this. With the Commission threatening legal action against Google for not including a full privacy policy in the search box, those who are concerned about the privacy of their personal information will have to do their research.

Now, this is not an indication that the internet is actually going to change, but it is an indication that privacy is still something that European companies need to get on board with. At least we hope so.

Google has been the recipient of criticism for not actually including a privacy policy in its search box. We all know that Google is not a privacy-protecting company but Google’s refusal to go the extra mile with this was a big step in that direction. Now, it’s not too late for Google to add a privacy policy, but instead of hiding the privacy policy from its users, Google needs to put one out there for the world to see.

It is still a big ask for Google to include a privacy policy on its site, but the company is making progress, we are told. To that end, we are looking forward to seeing a Google Privacy Policy to be released this summer.

Google is already trying to be a bit more transparent on its privacy policies, and the company is trying to do more than just put them out there. Its the company that introduced the new data-tracking tool called “Cookies” that lets you know when someone has visited your site, and for how long, as well as giving you the ability to block cookies.

Google has long been a company that is quite willing to let its users know what it is going to do with their data. Now the company is willing to make public its privacy policy. If it is a company that is willing to give its users information, it should be one that is open and transparent about how it uses that data.

I think Google’s move here is a really good step. The company is still getting to know the details of how its users use their data, but it is at least acknowledging that sharing some of that data isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
