"Right now we don't know if there's more or less than there was past year". And those are just the big scandals. "Companies will have to put in "right to be forgotten" request".

The new law could be hard for some companies to comply with.
"If in the past you have given your consent to receive marketing emails of a company, then that consent is still valid", said Frederik Borgesius, a privacy researcher at the Free University Brussels.
