Question for written answer  E-005766/2020/rev.1
to the Council
Rule 138
Patrick Breyer (Verts/ALE)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Regulating data tracking tools: the Digital Services Act and ePrivacy Regulation

1. Has the Council discussed the upcoming Digital Services Act with Bitkom, the German Association for the Digital Economy (BVDW), Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft or any other organisations? If so, what were their main positions on the Act?

2. The Council intends to adopt a General Approach to the proposed ePrivacy Regulation before the end of the year. Will the Council ensure that the ePrivacy text requires service providers to respect anti-tracking tools as a way for consumers to avoid ‘consent fatigue’?

3. Will the Council also ensure that consumers who refuse to be tracked cannot be banned from visiting particular websites that use tracking tools or cookie walls?
