Max Schrems on Twitter: “WTF?! So the “solution” of #Facebook, #Goolge or #Microsoft for #GDPR is to claim they have a “legitimate interest” to take all the data they can get their hands on and use it for any of their “products” (incl. ads)… 😧😭 #BeggingForThe4Percent”

Interesting thread at [WayBack] Max Schrems on Twitter: “WTF?! So the “solution” of #Facebook, #Goolge or #Microsoft for #GDPR is to claim they have a “legitimate interest” to take all the data they can get their hands on and use it for any of their “products” (incl. ads)… 😧😭 #BeggingForThe4Percent”.

For instance for Google at [WayBack] Privacy Policy – Privacy & Terms – Google:

    That is in my opinion the best way to explain how big data can become YOUR data. There is no way to “anonymize” data and stay anonymous….
    Everybody should use Venn diagrams (unless you are a marketeer…)
