GDPR Linking Guide

Before you go completely dark for anyone located in the EU, a list of URLs for pointing into Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation) appears below.

For all of its cleverness, the EU could not develop an intuitive ID scheme, something like “art-1, art-2,” choosing instead, “d1e1404-1-1 and d1e1455-1-1,” plus 97 more for all the sections. Guessing those section ids for the HTML version is difficult.

To solve that problem, use the following links for English (your language url + the #id for other languages):

I plan on hosting a improved but unofficial version that has predictable links not only for section headings but sub-sections and paragraphs as well. Watch for a note about that version.

If the EU were truly interested in the privacy of natural persons, they would be advocating and supporting the use of Tor servers and browsers.

But, they’re not.

Draw your own conclusions for their failure to do so.

PS: Please copy, modify, share these links for any reason, but especially to promote discussion of this lame approach to privacy by the EU.
