Personal data: EDPB recommendations in the context of the DMA and DSA23/02/2021
On February 10, 2021, the EDPB, the European Data Protection Board, published recommendations relating to the protection of personal data in the context of the publication of the proposal for a regulation on digital markets (hereinafter “DMA”) on the one hand, and on digital services (hereinafter “DSA“) on the other hand.
For each type of regulation, the EDPB provides targeted recommendations that should make it possible to consider the measures to be put in place to protect personal data.
In particular, the EDPB calls for consideration of the following questions:
- Profiling for content moderation purposes,
- Targeted advertising based on tracking,
- The restriction of the categories of data that can be used for targeted advertising,
- Data interoperability.
For the supervision of these operations, the EDPB believes that it will be necessary to have “a clear legal basis and structure” but also greater coordination between the different supervisory authorities involved.
