General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) breaking news!
With a view to enabling adoption of a political agreement on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as an early second reading agreement with the EP, the Presidency submits the consolidated text of the draft General Data Protection Regulation to the Permanent Representatives Committee as an outcome of the final trilogue. Taking into account the overall balance of this compromise text, the Presidency invites the Permanent Representatives Committee to analyse the compromise text resulting from the final trilogue with a view to agreement.
As eNACSO we consider this policy making process extremely poor and ineffective when it comes to young people since there hasn’t been any consultation in relation to it with any children’s or young people’s organization. We don’t have a clear position which of the two ages is more appropriate. Although, based on the business model and on the threats arising from the Industry aiming at (commercially) targeting young people, we consider the raising of the age to 16 the better option. Nonetheless, we have no evidence to prove that such an option would be a reasonable privacy baseline with no consequences on the safety of children.
