The European Parliament Thursday adopted for the first time a single set of rules for the 28-nation EU to protect the privacy of people using the Internet.The reform replaces a patchwork of rules introduced two decades ago at the dawn of the Internet age and boosts efforts by the European Commission, the EU executive, to build a single digital market for 500 million people.Google and Brussels have previously clashed over this right, which allows citizens to require search engines to erase results involving them after a period of time.The new rules also give citizens the right to transfer their data to another service provider and to know when their information has been hacked while privacy policies must be explained to them clearly.Brussels is seeking to extend the EU single market to the digital era.
