Re: Blatant attempt to drive traffic to a commercial site?

I think I found the one you mean. Try running whois on them. It doesn't look anything like what I'd expect from an official EU site.

Googling GDPR FAQ brings up pages of ads, all from service vendors. Oddly enough it doesn't seem to bring up anything from the EU itself. Attempting to search the actual EU official site, http://ec.europa.eu for GDPR FAQ doesn't actually lead to anything like an FAQ although, bizarrely, even though I'm querying an https page entering the query brings up a warning that the information I've entered is to be sent over an insecure link.
