Europe’s ePrivacy Regulation must level the playing field — for the users

Access Now testified in a hearing before the LIBE Committee in the European Parliament on the proposal for an e-Privacy Regulation that was presented by the EU Commission on 10 January 2017.

The e-Privacy proposal aims to set the rules for the respect for private life and the confidentiality of electronic communications in the EU. Access Now's testimony clarifies that to protect Europeans’ fundamental rights, the rules should not only uphold the level of protection afforded by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), but should exceed it.
