The Article 29 Data Protection Working Party has released its opinion on the evaluation of the ePrivacy Directive. “The Article 29 Working Party (WP29) supports the European Commission’s recognition of the need to have specific rules for electronic communications in the EU,” the opinion read. The Article 29 opinion also discussed how the ePrivacy Directive must not undermine the General Data Protection Regulation. “The revised ePrivacy instrument should keep the substance of existing provisions but make them more effective and workable in practice, by extending the scope of the rules on geolocation and traffic data to all parties, while simultaneously introducing more precisely defined conditions that take the intrusiveness of the processing of communication data to the private life of users thoroughly into account,” the group states.
