There are several groups asking for exemptions on data privacy in the European Union.

Financial watchdogs from North America, Britain and Asia are seeking an exemption from the EU's new data privacy law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The request is to avoid hampering cross-border investigations. The financial officials say not being exempted from the GDPR could jeopardize international  probes and enforcement actions involving market manipulation and fraud.

In the United Kingdom, Privacy International, Liberty and Open Rights Group –joined more than 60 NGOs calling for  a halt to collection communication data. The groups have filed complaints to the European Commission calling for EU governments to stop requiring companies to store all communications data.  They note that the practice was ruled unlawful by the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) in two separate judgments in 2014 and 2016.—which was before the GDPR became effective. Complaints have been filed in 11 EU member states: Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the UK.  To read mores see:

Dutch privacy regulator says 600 complaints have been filed about possible privacy violations since the GDPR became effective May 25, 2018. In assessing the first 400 complaints a common issue was people asking an organization to delete their personal data. One –third of the complaints involved the "right to be forgotten". Over 85 percent of the complaints were about companies.
