USA news sites block European Union readers due to GDPR

Complaints of privacy violation have been filed against tech giants Google and Facebook within hours of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) taking effect on Friday.

Andrea Jelinek, chairwoman of the new European Data Protection Board, which will coordinate enforcement of the new law, criticized the blackout and said that companies had been given a long time to prepare.

Incidentally the European Union was not motivated by the FACA scandal per se; but the organization seems to be well aware of "the evil that men do".

Andrea Jelinek, who heads both Austria's Data Protection Authority and a new European Data Protection Board set up under GDPR, appeared to express sympathy with Schrems' arguments at a news conference in Brussels. Pronto, on 4 May 2016, the revised regulation was published in the EU Official Journal in all the official languages of the organization. Depending on the member state, it is possible that regulators will immediately take action to address any noncompliance. The new law will also enable them to protect their rights if something goes wrong.

Though GDPR has been a decade in the works, many businesses began detailing their compliance efforts only in the last month. The personal data handling operations covered includes collection, storage, transfer, or use of such data. Included in the kinds of personal data covered are a person's name and government ID numbers.

The activist group says customers must agree to having their data collected, shared and used for targeted advertising, or delete their accounts. Data is owned by various corporates or organizations in Hong Kong.

Thanks to GDPR, you will also now have a much better insight into the astonishing amount of data companies hold on you. However for many companies it was a huge wake-up call because they never did their homework.

Opt Out. Look for setting or opt-out options.

"We expect all companies to fully comply with the General Data Protection Regulation as of today".

Critics say the new rules are overly burdensome, especially for small businesses, while advertisers and publishers worry it will make it harder for them to find customers. "No one is exempt".

But if you're wondering what this thing actually is you're not alone.

At the very least, those GDPR emails clogging your inbox are a useful reminder of all the websites and apps you signed up for years ago and then forgot about. Also, it must be easy for you to change your mind and withdraw your consent. It also demands that firms hand over any data they have on people when requested, and that the data be permanently deleted if the user chooses. While a user seeking to exercise the data portability right would be able to move playlists he or she created, the situation becomes fuzzy if the playlists are created by the streaming service using algorithms.

"GDPR can be a competitive advantage for India, if enterprises understand its relevance and further bring in a risk-based iterative mechanism to their business strategy that is trustworthy secure, and agile in the digital world", he added.
