1. NOYB Files Complaint Against Eight Tech Firms

At least eight tech firms were named in a complaint filed by the privacy group NOYB (None Of Your Business) for allegedly violating the EU's GDPR regulations. Max Schrems, who chairs NOYB, said none of the companies fully complied with GDPR. While many organizations set up automated systems to respond to access requests, he says, they often don't remotely provide the data that users have a right to see. That can cause structural violations of users' rights because these systems are designed to withhold relevant information, he adds. Companies named in the complaint, which was filed in Austria on behalf of 10 users, include Apple, Amazon, Netflix, Spotify, and YouTube.
