    The European Commission has published a new fact sheet setting out their proposals for modernising the current digital privacy rules. Digital Look reports:


    Full article here.

    The fact sheet is well worth a read, and you can find it here: http://europa.eu/rapid/press-release_MEMO-17-17_en.htm

    Is anyone else not surprised this wasn't in there in the first place? Seemed like a really big oversight.

    I always thought it was ridiculous when they implemented the sweeping rules about cookies, saying that each website must inform users if they use cookies. Surely it should be up to the user to educate themselves regarding what cookies are and how to control them. Hopefully that requirement will be gone with the set of rules!
