Expert talk: Meet NOYB - The NGO founded by Max Schrems

Hear about their activities regarding transfers, Google Analytics, cookies and much more.

Over the last months, EU regulators have come down hard on websites that use Google Analytics. Why did GA all of a sudden become illegal?

NOYB (short for “None of your business”) filed 101 complaints against Google in 2020 due to the transfer of data from the EU to the US. Due to these complaints, Austria, France, and Italy found Google Analytics to be in violation of the GDPR and according to Romain, more will follow soon.

NOYB is an NGO founded by Max Schrems, who filed the complaints having led to the declaration of invalidity of the Safe Harbour agreement by the CJEU (Schrems I) and the Privacy Shield (Schrems II).

A little insight into NOYB:
  • They filed 101 complaints regarding Google Analytics & transfer of data to the US
  • They filed 422 complaints against companies using deceptive cookie banners on their website
  • Together with the Norwegian Consumer Council, NOYB filed complaints against the dating app Grindr over the illegal sharing of users’ data.

So this is an organisation you should know about!

In this expert talk, you’ll meet Romain Robert, Program Director of NOYB.
