"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."

@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 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.
