The EUTA is in favour of strong data protection standards, which provide for trust and confidence in digital technologies and services. The EUTA supports having an open dialogue with the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS), the Article 29 Working Party, and the Article 31 Committee. In some (but not all) cases, European privacy standards can constitute a selling point vis-à-vis equivalent services that are not subject to the same standards. However, the EUTA believes that many of the rules we have are old-fashioned and outdated, and provide neither the space we need to innovate nor real protection for citizens.
