On 12 March 2018, ACT together with other national associations representing commercial broadcasters and radios as well as sales houses organise a seminar on e-Privacy.
On 10 January 2017, the Commission proposed a Regulation on Privacy and Electronic Communications which if adopted will replace the current e-Privacy Directive. Together with GDPR will establish a new privacy legal framework for electronic communications. Therefore the seminar tried to further explain functionalities and purpose of cookies, distinction between a 1st and a 3rd party cookie, overall implications for advertisers and users and what effects could privacy by default approach have on commercial broadcasters.
The seminar brought together experts from leading commercial broadcasters and Council representatives.
