Data transfers and Privacy

With the adoption of the GDPR, the European Union has put in place strict standards guaranteeing effective protection of the personal data of European citizens. However, a similar level of protection cannot be seen in non-European countries, such as the United States. At the same time, the data collected in Europe by Big Tech companies is transferred within the US on an enormous scale. The purpose of this section is to analyze the difficulties and risks resulting from a new data economy that is largely based on the collection and transfer of data.
