The present paper attempted to analyze the evolution of the use of internet or HTTP cookies through a more concrete discourse on personal data and national security in the practice of the European Union (EU) law. The analysis is oriented towards the transfer of personal data also outside the EU and above all in the United States. What kind of protection do we have? What are the problems inherent in data transfer? These are some of the topics under examination above all to the persistent critical issues that such a transfer entails the risk of a rejection by the CJEU. The paper ends up with the contributions and critical aspects the new ePrivacy regulation provides for.
