Europol was a police office funded by various states to help tackle international organised crime.
However, it has been reborn as the official criminal intelligence-gathering arm of the EU and it will be centrally funded.
Among personal details that can be gathered and stored are "behavioural data" including "lifestyle and routine; movements; places frequented", tax position and profiles of DNA and voice.
