From the Introduction: "This paper discusses the use of technology as a response to the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic among the European Union Member States considering years-long European effort to increase privacy protection. This paper identifies two waves of technological solutions: first, the use of anonymized location data shared by telecommunications companies (hereinafter: telecoms) to monitor crowd movements; second, the emergence of contact tracing apps to speed up the procedure of identifying infected individuals. Both waves of technological solutions are discussed in terms of privacy, transparency, and effectiveness."
