GDPR and e-
Sometimes questions arise about the relationship between the EU GDPR and the emerging updated e-
In general, where both laws apply to the same set of personal data processing operations, they sometimes apply in a complementary way and in other cases, the ePD is more specific than GDPR where a more specific rule applies. The Opinion has confirmed that the more granular, specialised rule of ePD will take precedence over a GDPR rule, in such cases.
In the UK, the ICO will enforce the provisions of both the GDPR and the ePD and it is not inconceivable that a Data Protection Authority (DPA) could discover an infringement of ePD rules and take this into account when applying the GDPR.
