European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) releases Opinion on the EC’s proposal for an Electronic Trust Services Regulation

Assistant EDPS Giovanni Buttarelli, who signed the opinion, said that the proposed new law should set out a requirement that trust service providers and electronic identification issuers should have to provide individuals who use their services with “appropriate information on the collection, communication, and retention of their data”. He added that those organisations should also have to provide individuals with “a means to control their personal data and exercise their data protection rights”.
