According to PECR, The Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003, the EU is in the process of replacing the e-privacy Directive with a new e-privacy Regulation to sit alongside the GDPR. However, the new Regulation is not yet agreed. For now, PECR continues to apply alongside the GDPR. Once the regulations have been set in place, we will notify you of the changes to the e-privacy Directive.
