Portugal proposes new text of ePrivacy Regulation

The Portuguese presidency of the EU has pitched a new text on the controversial ePrivacy regulation, focusing on the processing of communications metadata and data stored on end-user equipment.

The most important change the Portuguese Presidency has proposed is the re-introduction of the possibility to process electronic communications metadata and to use the processing and storage capabilities of the end-users’ terminal equipment, including collection of information for further compatible processing.
