Re: Windows 10 April update is in breach
According to the article:
"We've been enthusiastic supporters of GDPR since it was first proposed in 2012," Brill argued. "It sets a strong standard for privacy and data protection by empowering people to control their personal information."
So, what happens when 10,000 European citizens write to Microsoft withdrawing their consent for use of their personal information to impose Windows 10 automated updates? The GDPR specifically states that consent may be withdrawn at any time. I suspect that MS does not actually have the technical facilities to either process or comply with such a legally binding notification. And I don't think any regulator would deem it acceptable for MS to reply "Then don't connect your PC to the Internet."
Cue the EU seizing 4% of MS's global annual turnover (he said hopefully).
