"In a groundbreaking decision, the Austrian Data Protection Authority ("Datenschutzbehörde" or "DSB") has decided on a model case by noyb that the continuous use of Google Analytics violates the GDPR."
"This is a very detailed and sound decision. The bottom line is: Companies can't use US cloud services in Europe anymore."
@erincandescent @spacekookie The Schrems I and II decisions made this absolutely crystal clear in plain language years ago, and the Commission kept diving out with fig leaves and talking it all down like it was nothing
The crux of Schrems I (which hasn't changed and was reaffirmed in Schrems II) was: The US is structurally dishonest and can not currently be trusted with private EU data no matter what promises it makes in trade deals or public statements. Unless huge structural changes happened to make the US trustworthy, data transfers should stop immediately.
They didn't stop immediately.
@erincandescent @spacekookie like "Long Term Solution. In the long run, there seem to be two options: Either the US adapts baseline protections for foreigners to support their tech industry, or US providers will have to host foreign data outside of the United States." <-- the latter makes a lot of sense for a lot of reasons, but can US agencies compel that data be transferred back to the US?
