  • Denmark's data protection authority, Datatilsynet, released a statement regarding its monitoring of the Austrian Data Protection Authority's ruling that Google Analytics violates the EU General Data Protection Regulation and the Court of Justice of the European Union's prior ruling on data transfers. Datatilsynet said it will assess the decision and provide relevant guidance, noting "it is essential that European regulators have a common interpretation of the rules."
  • Guernsey's Office of the Data Protection Authority announced the removal of Google Analytics from its website. "Ethics and accountability are talked about a lot, so we wanted to be open and transparent about our position," ODPA said, adding the Austrian ruling serves as a "reminder to us all that data protection is not a static box-ticking exercise."
