"Here's the fun bit: it's also actually illegal in Europe. Not the very act itself, but to gain permission to access personal information you must obtain permission EXPLICITLY, NOT IMPLICITLY under EU privacy laws"

You are failing to understand privacy law. "Personal information" does not mean "a stash of kiddy porn" it doesn't even mean "Things I don't want the authorities to see." There are strict legal definitions of personal data and sensitive personal data.
