Google Starts Moving EU Citizens Data to USA


Britain’s departure from the European Union has also mobilized some companies. One of these companies is Google. Google, which has been protecting the data of users in England within the scope of “GDPR” in the past years, is now moving this data to the USA.

England, one of the most important countries of the European Union, speaks of an agreement called “Brexit” recently. This agreement covers Britain’s departure from the European Union. With the agreement, the UK will no longer be part of the European Union. While this situation is supported by some sections, it is criticized with certain language by others.

We do not know how Britain’s departure from the European Union will affect political life, but some sectoral changes have started to occur. For example, the US-based technology giant Google is currently busy moving data from UK users to the US. This seems to irritate some users.

Under European Union law, users’ data had to be protected under the “General Data Protection Regulation” (GDPR). However, with the UK’s departure from the European Union, Google had to exclude user data from the GDPR. As such, Britain’s user data had to move to the US, Google headquarters.

It’s normal for Google to move data from users in the UK to the U.S. However, it is claimed that Google carries data is not only limited to the UK. So much so that Google would also email some users outside the UK and report that their data had been moved to the U.S.

People living in countries in the European Union can easily move to countries in the union. Considering that Britain is one of the largest countries in the European Union, we can say that many people in the European Union travel to England for travel or business purposes. According to allegations, the data of users who spend some of their lives in the UK seems to be moving to the USA in an interesting way.

Users who have gone to the UK but do not live there and are not UK citizens, say they do not want their data moved to the US. However, it is stated that Google does not care about such requests and does not intend to change this situation. It looks like we will continue to talk that Google will continue to be on the agenda with data migration in the coming days.
