Dies ist eine Online-Petition of the European Parliament.


The petitioner asks for the prohibition at European level of the sale of geolocation data by telecommunication and mobile application companies to third parties. The petitioner argues that, once sold, this data can easily be misused by non-ethical companies, which would seriously affect citizens’ privacy and individual freedom.
