But it did not take steps to change the rules that allow American companies like Google and Microsoft to compile that data.The statement by the commission came against a running debate between European and American officials over online data protection, a discussion that has become increasingly tense after a series of revelations by Edward J. Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor, about electronic surveillance by the United States in Europe.
