EU seeks to outlaw 'backdoors' in new data privacy proposals; Guardian, June 19, 2017

Samuel Gibbs, Guardian; EU seeks to outlaw 'backdoors' in new data privacy proposals

"The ePrivacy directive change proposals seek to bring the 2002 law in line with the newer GDPR and attempt to keep pace with technological development. They also cover the tracking of users for advertising, the collection of metadata and behavioural data, an the explicit consent required to do so.

The amendments will have to journey through a multi-stage process including approval by the European parliament and European council before becoming law, but they were welcomed by privacy and security experts."
