Political advertising: EU lawmakers to reign in on surveillance-based targeting of political advertising (Patrick Breyer)

Patrick Breyer: Political advertising: EU lawmakers to reign in on surveillance-based targeting of political advertising. “Today, the European Parliament’s LIBE committee voted to restrict the use of personal data to target online political advertisements to data explicitly provided for this purpose by citizens with their consent, excluding the use of behavioral and inferred intelligence on citizens. LIBE has the exclusive competence on the articles dealing with data protection (the targeting). However, the position will be subject to trilogue negotiations with EU governments.”
