Proposals would introduce a single set of rules giving individuals more control over how their personal data is managed and used.
A recent survey on attitudes on data protection in the EU has found that:
2 out of 3 Europeans are worried that companies share their personal data without their permission
9 out of 10 want the same data protection rights across Europe.
To address these concerns, the Commission is proposing to update the EU’s data protection law. The changes would introduce a single set of rules on data protection, valid across the EU.
