The European Parliament approved the rules governing the work of large technology companies

New, stricter rules passed today by the European Parliament are intended to regulate the activities of the largest technology companies in the EU, such as Amazon, Google and Meta.

The new regulations will regulate two laws – On Digital Services and On Digital Markets. They will replace the e-commerce directive adopted two decades ago.

From now on, for example, targeted advertising aimed at children or based on personal data is prohibited, unsubscribing from services should be as easy as subscribing, online stores will be required to guarantee the safety of goods, violators of the new rules will be fined, and in case of repeated violations, a ban on activities in EU.
