In his latest blog post, European Data Protection Supervisor Giovanni Buttarelli wrote to emphasize the importance of adopting the proposed ePrivacy rules. As MEPs and the current College of European Commissioners enter the business end of their term, the focus is on finalizing a number of data protection and digital rights proposals. Buttarelli called for progress on ePrivacy rules and urged that the proposal must not lower the level of protection laid out by the EU General Data Protection Regulation. He wrote, “The adoption of the proposed ePrivacy Regulation is crucial to protect the fundamental rights to privacy and the protection of personal data in the digital age,” adding, “we urgently need a higher level of protection.”
