He also noted that the Old Continent need tools much easier to protect data online to Internet users. The first draft released by the European Union includes several points to note . For example, the authorities want companies to inform them automatically when the theft of information, but that’s not all because the law covers “the right to be forgotten” (which users are able to delete all your data without leaving traces on the web).
