A Trip Though Europe

I recently got to spend a few days traveling through Europe and it was a delight to see where Data Privacy and Ownership was going.

Every website I clicked on asked me if they could use cookies to track me and most gave me an option to turn off that type of tracking. Although this is great, there were NO options to actively manage the data they have collected on me overtime or give me more fine-grained choices. They still have "all or none" choices and the future iterations of the law will not allow this.

I got to talk to several small businesses that are struggling with data laws. They are caught between a rock and a hard place. Most have ignored them for now, since the cost of being compliant is far too much and the legal mechanisms to enforce are just coming online this year.

These both seem like great opportunities for Rownd!
