You say, "deciding to cut off Europe," but in fact, European countries are cutting themselves out.
It's for the simple reason that they don't want anything getting out of Europe.
It's just like, "what happens in Europe, stays in Europe".
This is setting the stage for a major event.
I've seen this coming for years.
Sure it's horrible news for y'all selling personal information. Remember the days when we got spam in our inboxes? Well, our email addresses were currency and we had no control.
Now, the new law says the individual owns their own personal information and you better not share it with anyone unless I specifically say so.
It's horribly bad news for the big corps like Google and Facebook that handle personal data as a business model.
Not exactly sure what this horrible idea about controlling your personal data is about.
