Sole traders who use platforms such as Amazon and Google to sell online could find themselves blocked because the EU would not recognise UK data protection standards in the event of no-deal.

Both Amazon and Google host huge amounts of data from giant centres based in Europe.

It could take years for the EU to sign off a data compliance agreement with an independent UK.
