While not directly a part of GDPR, the proposed EU e-Privacy Regulation is designed to address ‘‘natural and legal persons in the provision and use of electronic communications services and, in particular, the rights to respect for private life and communications and the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data.” The focus on unsolicited marketing, cookies, electronic communications, data analytics will (if passed) trigger changes to the deployment of digital technologies for notice and consent, including updates to the oversight of electronic communications service providers. While separate from GDPR, the compliance timelines will also impact data controllers and data processor where e-Privacy services are in scope.
