Introduction of the Google case

The Google example is used in the course to demonstrate certain aspects of the GDPR. Watch Evgeni Moyakine explain more.

We are using the Google example in this course to illustrate certain aspects of the General Data Protection Regulation. Google is essentially a large multinational technology company specialising in a large variety of products and services, including Internet search services and cloud computing.

In our course, the Google example can, for instance, be used to demonstrate different data protection roles or the position of data subjects and their rights. Also, references are made to the Google Spain case brought before the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU).

We hope that you will find this example and case helpful in understanding the sometimes abstract concepts in the GDPR.
