EU Council Presidency Releases Progress Report on Draft ePrivacy Regulation

On June 3, 2020, the Presidency of the Council of the European Union (“the Presidency”) published a progress report on the proposed Regulation concerning the Respect for Private Life and the Protection of Personal Data in Electronic Communications and Repealing Directive 2002/58/EC (Regulation on Privacy and Electronic Communications), better known as “the Draft ePrivacy Regulation”.

The Progress Report highlights that the most important modification introduced by the Presidency in the latest draft ePrivacy Regulation is the possibility of relying on the “legitimate interest” ground to (1) process electronic communications’ metadata, and (2) place cookies or similar technologies on end-users’ terminals, subject to specific conditions and safeguards.
