    Welcome to GDPR: Here are the data privacy notices publishers are showing their Europe-based readers

    We’re seeing what publishers have decided to implement on their websites as of May 25 — whether they’ve decided to block European Union and European Economic Area-based traffic outright, set up buckets of consent for readers to click through, or done something simpler (or nothing new at all).

    Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation laws are now in effect, and we’re getting a sense of what publishers have decided to implement on their websites as of May 25 — whether they’ve decided to block European Union and European Economic Area-based traffic outright, set up buckets of consent for readers to click through, or something simpler. (Or nothing new at all.)

    Publishers have had , but the government regulations still appeared to catch some off-guard. GDPR is intended to give people within the EU control over their personal data, but the way it’s structured is a headache for news organizations and other online entities that have used visitors’ data for years. GDPR’s principles may also put the dissemination of information online at risk, as :

    The GDPR includes the ‘Right to Be Forgotten,’ which allows individuals to request that search engines and other platforms remove specific information about them. Effectively, this would allow an E.U. citizen to request that Google remove stories and websites from search, and it could have a profound effect on the dissemination of newsworthy information. While there are some exemptions in place to protect news outlets, journalists and researchers, it’s possible that investigative projects like this year’s Pulitzer Prize-winning #MeToo series, which relied on a tremendous amount of personal data, may not be seen, at least not easily, in some democratic countries that uphold the tenets of free speech. The subjects of those stories might object to the reporting and demand that their names and likenesses be removed.

    These splinternets are already happening. Local news outlets, like North Carolina TV station WRAL (screenshot courtesy of ) and all Tronc properties have blocked access to visitors from the European Union.

    Connecticut’s asked visitors to choose which services their information is shared with, from Taboola to Chartbeat — but apparently their GDPR explanation was inaccessible to EU browsers.

    Access isn’t shut off everywhere, though: NPR is asking visitors from the EU to agree to their terms or view the site in plain text only.

    And if you want to browse The Washington Post’s website from the EU, it will cost you an extra $30 a year for “no on-site advertising or third-party ad tracking.”

    The Atlantic’s comprehensive ask walks users through the different options of data processing.

    Could there be a silver lining? Some publishers might be using this as an opportunity for a smoother browsing experience, like USA Today’s GDPR-proof website:

    Other services, like reading app Instapaper, movie and TV review app Stardust, and inbox-declutterer Unroll.me, have The countdown-to-GDPR clock is now reset to the countdown-to-first-penalties clock ().

    “We must collaborate on rewriting the power dynamics between newsrooms and each other, our audiences and those we seek to hold accountable.”
    Journalism becomes the escape
    “Wouldn’t it be great if news organizations felt like something known, loved and trusted? If our neighbors retreated into work created by our organizations like they do into private texting groups or Netflix binges or that cozy corner booth at a favorite restaurant?”
    We should listen to the kids (especially on Instagram)
    “If an established, legacy newsroom hired 15, 23 year olds to run a vertical of their own, I’d read that. And maybe 23 year olds would, too.”
