Big US tech companies are watching you and what you do on the internet, and there’s nothing you can do about it…Except Vote!!!
Fortunately, the European Union is here to save at least some of us. The EU is less than six months away from instituting the most aggressive personal data protections ever seen, limiting how tech companies can collect, secure, and use your information — and making sure they let you know just what they’re doing.
These rules will put the EU far ahead of the U.S. in terms of regulating tech companies. The U.S. is considering no such rules at this time.
