Cloud computing services are considered among the most important services provided for companies due to the various benefits they confer. However, data privacy is a major concern for users, and laws covering this contain many contradictions and require improvement. This paper discusses the laws governing privacy issues in cloud computing, highlights missing components that could be added to laws, and proposes amendments to laws that may help create a better consumer experience, improved service, and increased protection for personal data. At the end of the paper, a set of recommendations is proposed for governments and private companies that would increase the responsibility held by cloud computing service providers in the event of failing to protect personal data from privacy invasion.
