European Data Protection Supervisor Giovanni Buttarelli released his opinion on the ePrivacy Regulation, stating the General Data Protection Regulation will remain incomplete until the regulation is strengthened. “I welcome and support the Commission’s ambitious attempt to provide for the comprehensive protection of electronic communications. The extension of confidentiality obligations to a broader range of providers and services is a particularly important step forward, which reflects recent technological developments and our changing relationship with technology,” Buttarelli said. “However, certain improvements are necessary if the Regulation is to deliver on the promise of a high level of protection for electronic communications.” The EDPS expressed concerns surrounding tying definitions within the proposals to the European Electronic Communications Code and the processing of electronic communications data by entities other than individuals or organizations.
