EU competition chief hints at new data rules for tech firms

Aug 3, 2020

LONDON — The European Union's powerful competition chief indicated Friday that she's looking at expanding regulations on personal data, dropping an initial hint about how she plans to use new powers against tech companies. Margrethe Vestager said that while Europeans have control over their own data through the EU's world-leading data privacy rules, they don't address problems stemming from the way companies use other people's data, "to draw conclusions about me or to undermine democracy."
