ePrivacy Directive: Assessment of Transposition, Effectiveness and Compatibility with Proposed Data Protection Regulation

Research output: Book/ReportReportResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The ePrivacy Directive has been implemented in Denmark through a range of legislative instruments, beginning with the Act on Electronic Communications and Services but leading into more important Executive Order on Provision of Electronic Services and the Cookie Order. This structure could be confusing for outsiders as it involves several acts, all of which are concerned not just with one but with several directives. The use of ministerial orders can be explained by the need to introduce flexibility into the fast-changing area, but avoiding a lengthy and complicated full legislative process.
