EDRi booklets

Privacy campaign materials

Deutsch: Materialien zur Datenschutz-Kampagne

There are countless half-truths and misconceptions spreading about the proposed data protection reform. EDRi has therefore decided to produce a broad range of materials about the most worrying problems.

The mythbusting series seeks to correct the many myths surrounding this legislative reform. The #eudatap series looks at the lobbying efforts by the industry and at the reasons why we need stronger data protection rules in the digital age. The « I don't care » papers ironically provide those who don't care about data protection with handy examples of the kinds of activity they don't care about.

All documents are published under a CC-BY licence. Feel free to translate into your language, to distribute and, most importantly, explain these issues to your Parliamentarians. You can also find them on
