Iceland’s Data Protection Authority is examining the use of Google Chromebooks in Icelandic schools, mbl.is reports. The devices, similar to laptops, were recently banned in Danish schools due to data transfer risks. Vigdís Eva Líndal, the Data Protection Authority’s director, says children should be able to learn using digital devices without giving personal information away to US tech giants.

Iceland’s investigation into the devices is part of a pan-European assessment of cloud solutions in public institutions. The Icelandic audit is being carried out in five municipalities, and the results are expected this fall. Iceland’s Data Protection Authority banned use of the Seesaw educational system in Iceland last winter due to data transfer concerns.
