[linux-elitists] Proxy servers in Europe for all! (maybe)
Wed Jul 12 12:16:00 PDT 2000
So, remember when the European Commission said that American privacy
violator web sites could continue to collect personal data on Europeans,
provided the Americans did some pathetic self-regulation bullshit? "Safe
Harbor" they called it.
It looks like the European Parliament doesn't like "Safe
Harbor" one little bit. "Parliament feels that the Commission
has exceeded its powers with the agreement it has reached
with the United States on the transfer of personal data."
But what does this mean in practice? Apparently the EU is still
getting its procedures together.
Anybody know? Could this mean no more e-Euro-commerce solutions
for the enterprise until the US regulates collection and exchange
of personal data?
