EU FOLK, KNOW YOUR RIGHT TO PRIVACY & HOW TO PROTECT IT FROM FACEBOOK, AMAZON, ETC. »

It doesn’t matter what format the data takes – online on a computer system or on paper in a structured file – whenever information directly or indirectly identifying you as an individual is stored or processed, your data protection rights have to be respected. EU data protection rules guarantee the protection of your personal data whenever they are collected. These rules apply to both companies and organisations in the EU and those based outside the EU who offer goods or services in the EU, such as Facebook or Amazon, whenever these companies request or re-use the personal data of individuals in the EU.
