Is Google Analytics illegal in the EU? Yes and no, but mostly yes.
Max Schrems, the lawyer who successfully sued Facebook for privacy violations against European citizens, has scored another victory, this time against Google: In two landmark court rulings, Austria's data protection authority as well as France's privacy watchdog has found that Google Analytics is illegal to use on European websites. Danish and Norwegian data protection authorities have now explained how to use Google Analytics in a legally compliant way in the EU.

Microsoft's Office 365 declared illegal for German schools - again!
German schools must not use Microsoft Office 365 due to privacy violations. After two years of negotiations with Microsoft, the German Data Protection Conference (DSK) issued a damning statement that given the missing transparency in regards to data protection and potential third-party access no personal data of German school children must be stored on Microsoft's servers outside of Germany. This could also affect other American cloud solutions such as Google's and Apple's.
Every day is Cyber Monday at Tutanota.
The Cyber Monday hype is just another method by marketers and advertisers to keep you buying. Higher, faster, further - that's the aim of marketers. But for consumers it leads to over-consumption and unnecessary spending. That's why we are saying no to Cyber Monday. Instead we are offering fair prices all year round.
Every day is Black Friday at Tutanota.

e-Evidence: Open letter calls for privacy safeguards.
e-Evidence negotiations have put fundamental rights on the line in an attempt to make cross-border criminal investigations more efficient. However, the cost for this efficiency would be very high. We call on policymakers to do better. The EU Council must acknowledge the need for stronger protection of Free Speech and privacy rights.

Social Credit System in China: Why it is so scary.
Imagine a world where everyone bins their trash, no one crosses a red light and everyone pays their taxes so that schools are always well funded. This sounds like a nice utopia. But add to this surveillance cameras, face recognition, and the requirement to always praise the government. Now it sounds like an Orwellian nightmare come true: Meet China's Social Credit System.

Dad sends naked picture of his child via Gmail to a doctor & his Google account gets blocked for good.
Once upon a time there was a father who used Google for everything: email, calendar, photos, logins. But then he shared naked pictures of his son with their children's doctor via Gmail. This got his entire Google account blocked. It was flagged for distributing child pornography or CSAM (short for child sexual abuse material). Even though the investigation was quickly closed, Google's block remained in place. This father lost access to years of email conversations, calendar entries, photos, and more. This example shows how harmful scanning for CSA material is. Instead we need security and privacy online!
