Data of European citizens may not be stored in the USA without further
considerations. This is stated in a ruling by the European Court of Justice
(ECJ) from the summer of 2020. However, many companies violate this
requirement on a daily basis, as does the European Parliament.

Parliament had installed cookies from Google Analytics and the payment
service provider Stripe on its website.

European Data Protection Supervisor Wojciech Wiewiorowski investigated the
cookies and has now concluded that they should not have been used.  He
issued a cease-and-desist order.
