Could this be a new standard?

What protections does GDPR offer? The law only affects data that is intended for professional or commercial activities. Other companies may not need to rely on consent for marketing communications. It must have asked your permission before storing your email. What day, you ask?

USA Today says its site does not collect "personally identifiable information or persistent identifiers from, deliver a personalized experience to, or otherwise track or monitor persons reasonably identified as visiting our site from the European Union". This is to ensure that, if the company is hacked, your data is still safe.

For example, Apple has launched a new privacy portal where people can download all their personal data or delete their account, in other words providing people with the rights of access and erasure.

The EU, being made up of lots of different countries, has a lot of rules around privacy and data collection and how data should be stored by companies not based in Europe.

"If it is possible to identify an individual directly from the information you are processing, then that information is personal data". Second, customers will have to be provided the option to delete personal data. We look forward to having the same Instapaper service you know and love accessible in Europe in the very near future.

The product's privacy policy is one of the clearer T&Cs we've seen.

Schrems has filed three complaints worth a total €3.9bn against Facebook and its subsidiaries, WhatsApp and Instagram, via regulators in Austria, Belgium and Germany.

Some of these emails are from big companies like Uber or Nest.

Anyone in the European Union will have received a lot of GDPR-related emails from companies. But others are from newsletters you probably don't remember signing up for. All they had to do was update their privacy policy and draw your attention to your right to unsubscribe.

Your positive opt-in is based on the information presented to you at the time, so it shouldn't later be used for anything you didn't sign up to. "Right now we don't know if there's more or less than there was previous year".

A large number of European web users have been unable to access certain USA sites, including The Chicago Times, the LA Times, The New York Daily News, Chicago Tribune, Orlando Sentinel and Baltimore Sun.

While these two groups took the most extreme measures, USA Today redirected readers in Europe to a new site ( that has a limited number of news stories and no advertising.
