Lawyers for the European Commission claim a proposed deal between the U.S. and the EU allowing America to store the personal data of millions of transatlantic passengers is illegal. That’s according to a report in the UK’s Guardian newspaper. The U.S. wants access to credit card details, phone numbers and home addresses of European passengers as part of its anti-terror measures.
