German Presidency charts new COVID19 ‘metadata’ rules in leaked ePrivacy text

The German EU Council presidency is seeking to permit the processing of metadata in online communications for ‘monitoring epidemics’ or to help in ‘natural or man-made disasters,’ according to a leaked text on the ePrivacy regulation.

However, the Germans’ proposal on the highly controversial ePrivacy regulation has at the same time withdrawn the ‘legitimate interest’ provision for the general processing of metadata, included in earlier versions of the text.
