Legal & Privacy
How does Usercentrics CMP prepare me for ePrivacy?
The new ePrivacy regulation is set to come into effect in 2020, and is meant to update the existing legal framework of the EU. The regulation aims to protect the security and confidentiality of electronic communications. The ePrivacy regulation refers to the definition of consent given in the GDPR, and for this reason the requirements for a consent to be valid are the same in the ePrivacy regulation as in the GDPR. Using Usercentrics´ Consent Management Platform will therefore make you well prepared for the ePrivacy regulation when it comes into effect. The ePrivacy regulation will have precedent over the GDPR on a number of issues, including cookies. However, the contents of the ePrivacy regulation are still not fully determined. Usercentrics keeps track of legal developments to make sure that the Consent Management Platform is up to date with the latest regulatory requirements.
