Data governance: new EU law for data-sharing adopted
The [Data Governance Act] introduces rules for data marketplaces in the form of intermediation services where companies can share their data voluntarily. Neutrality obligations have been introduced to make such marketplaces a trustworthy environment. Many businesses currently prefer not to share their data for fear of misuse or breaching privacy obligations.

Data intermediaries that comply with the requirements of the DGA can ask to be listed in a public register; a way to foster trust and make compliance easier for smaller companies.

A similar approach was adopted for data altruist entities, individuals, or organisations that make data available for the common good, medical research, or fighting climate change.

"We are concerned about how a weak definition of altruism in this agreement could allow companies to over-use vague, altruistic grounds to push consumers to share their data," said Jelena Malinina, digital and health policy officer at the European Consumer Organisation (BEUC).

Norway fines dating app Grindr $7.16M [NOK 65M] over privacy breach
The Norwegian Data Protection Authority said it imposed its highest fine to date because the California-based company didn't comply with the EU's tough data protection regulations. Norway isn't a member of the 27-nation bloc but closely mirrors EU rules.
contract of adhesion d/b/a terms of use with "privacy settings"
In 2020, Norway's Consumer Council filed a complaint against Grindr for disclosing information about its users, including GPS locations, IP addresses, ages, gender and their use of the app, to several third parties for marketing purposes. That allowed users to be identified and third parties to potentially share personal information further.
