VIENNA: An Austrian privacy campaign group lodged complaints against eight online streaming services Friday, accusing them of “structural violations” of EU data regulations that came into effect last year. 

NOYB, a non-profit organisation whose name means None Of Your Business, said it had filed a complaint with Austria’s Data Protection Authority against services including Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime and Spotify.
