My colleague Carsten Casper sent this interesting note earlier this week:
Ever wondered what sort of information the EU (!) collects about its citizens? Here is the answer:
Criminal records, fingerprints, Visa information,… in short: there are 18 different EU mechanisms, i.e. not counting national systems. The responsible EU Commissioner, Cecilia Malmström, was surprised herself. The document is a useful reference for our discussions like “the US is privacy intrusive … – no, other countries also collect lots of stuff”.
