About the event:

Whether we are dealing with business entities or private individuals, anonymised or personal, content or metadata, IF the data in question falls within the category of "electronic telecommunications data", THEN the forthcoming ePrivacy Regulation will override the GDPR and impose its own requirements.

 But will these be more data subject-friendly or more benign to the "dataveillance" industry? As a "lex specialis" to the GDPR, given that most B2B, C2C and M2M digital interactions create electronic telecommunications data, the ePrivacy Regulation can either strengthen the GDPR or hollow it out completely. Exactly what data types fall into the category of "electronic telecommunications data"?

This talk explains the maximalist and the minimalist options on the table, their meaning not just for telecoms but anyone offering a chat or messaging app OTT service, and the likelihood we'll see this Regulation come into force at the same time as the GDPR on 25 May 2018
