In this week’s Privacy Tracker legislative roundup, read about the Italian data protection authority’s new provisions on consent and policies around online cookies, EU officials reviving a 2011 passenger name records bill and the Presidency of the Council of Ministers’ plans to tweak the “one-stop-shop” mechanism in the proposed data protection reform. Canada has a new privacy commissioner who has said he’d like to split the controversial Bill C-13, and the BC Supreme Court has authorized a lawsuit against Facebook claiming that its practice of publishing users’ “likes” of businesses on their friends’ pages violates the BC Privacy Act.
