EU Civil Liberties Committee Monitoring Use of Tracking Technology to Fight COVID-19

The head of the EU Parliament’s Civil Liberties Committee says the group is monitoring efforts to use smartphone data tracking to fight COVID-19.

“Even in these exceptional times, the EU’s data protection principles, namely the General Data Protection Rules (GDPR) and the e-Privacy Directive, must continue to apply and be respected,” said Juan Fernando López Aguilar (S&D, ES), the Chair of the EC Civil Liberties Committee. “The Civil Liberties Committee is following these developments closely because of the serious risks that such tools may imply for an individual’s fundamental rights to a private life and data protection,” he said.
