"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."

from noyb.eu/en/austrian-dsb-eu-us-

@spacekookie maybe i'm reading this wrong but uh

it sounds like the line of argument also basically makes use of AWS/GCP/Azure/CloudFlare/etc illegal

@erincandescent @spacekookie I want to read a lot more about this, especially where those providers' data centers in the EU are concerned.


@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?
