Another interesting topic is in regards to Estonia’s e-Residency.
If you look at the FAQ (link below), you see that it provides people with “EU E-Residency”
So the interesting question would be how Estonia’s Digital E-Residency is handled under GDPR.
Technically does this mean that if I am living the other side of the world, apply and get granted E-Residency (as it is a legitimate digital identity in Estonia), then I can request PII records from companies by claiming I am am an “EU resident”, as I have rights under GDPR?
If you are granted e-Residency, you will receive a government-issued digital ID card that allows you access to e-services. Most e-services available for e-residents currently are business related, so entrepreneurs will benefit most from e-Residency.
Your digital ID card may only be used in an electronic environment, and is not a valid form of identification outside of the internet. Although e-residents receive government-issued digi- ID’s similar to those of citizens, e-residency does not confer citizenship, tax residency, residence, or right of entry to Estonia or to the European Union. Your e-Residency digi-ID card cannot be used as physical identification or as a travel document.
