Published on

Two thirds of European internet users have concerns about storing private data with American technology companies. This is the result of a new study on Mobility, Data Protection and Encryption conducted by Convios Consulting and commissioned by GMX among 1,000 consumers in six European markets including the UK. Within Europe immense differences can be found. Nine out of ten (86 percent) of the users in Spain admitted that they are worried about storing their personal data with US technology organisations. Germany and Austria follow with 70 percent each. However, Britons are the least concerned compared with its European siblings with 45 percent of respondents expressing concerns about data privacy and security.
