Sorry?Yeah and when they get caught they get a slap on the wrist, so they continue to do it. lol Not sure what your point is. Nothing even happened to Civilization 6 company when they got caught red handed stealing peoples data. lol Nothing will happen to Avast either.
It took one stab at DDG to figure this out. Note the 50M Google fine among them. And a few others. Or the 183M for British Airways. I don't know about you, but those aren't the sort of fines you happily put aside as irrelevant. Although in the case of Google perhaps they do. But it still is a warning sign - do not trespass. And the result has actually been changes in policy, too, look at how Google now offers you a dashboard with all sorts of levers to remove tracking and clear advertising IDs.
You really oughta stop the trigger happy uninformed statements... or at least verify them.
Rome wasn't built overnight and its the US that is really the big bad guy here, with its total lack of regulation or even the completely absent public discussion on data ownership. Instead, the US is happy to axe net neutrality to please their already fat ISPs and other domestic companies. Commerce over everything, screw social cohesion and all other things that make us who we are.
Its about time you guys started a GDPR initiative too, really. It will increase its weight ten-fold and make it too big to ignore. Because that is the real cause these tech companies get away with everything: they operate internationally and countries can only change domestic policy.
