BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Cloud services providers such as Amazon and Microsoft and other data processing service providers must set up safeguards against illegal data transfers to non-EU governments, according to the European Commission's Data Act to be published this month.

The proposed rule, seen by Reuters, sets out rights and obligations on the use of EU data such as smart machinery and consumer goods, and is part of a raft of legislations aimed at reining in U.S. tech giants and helping the bloc meet its green and digital objectives.
