The European Commission proposed sweeping reforms Wednesday to protect the confidentiality of personal data online including a "right to be forgotten," which would let people have information about themselves deleted if there was no legitimate reason to retain it.
Max Schrems wasn't sure what he would get when he asked Facebook to send him a record of his personal data from three years of using the site.
"We are thrilled," said Max Schrems, 24, who speaks for the group. "It is far more than what has previously been achieved in Europe. There are a lot of things that they have to change, far more than what they have had to change before."
Schrems said, sitting with his laptop in a Viennese coffee house.
