The European Commission is currently seeking feedback from stakeholders on the current text of the ePrivacy Directive and the potential changes it faces. As part of the Digital Single Market Strategy the Commission adopted last year, the ePrivacy Directive — which spells out rules for processing personal data in the electronic communication sector — must be reviewed after the finalization of the General Data Protection Regulation. The review “is one of the key initiatives aimed at reinforcing trust and security in digital services in the EU,” the Commission states on its website. The comment period is open until July 5, and the Commission will then use the feedback “to prepare a new legislative proposal on ePrivacy, which is expected by the end of 2016.”
