EU websites track users without warning, against own rules
European institutions are tracking users of their web sites, in breach of the EU's own data protection rules, EurActiv has learned. The fact has been confirmed by Europe's data protection watchdog, in an interview with EurActiv, while Brussels is reviewing privacy legislation to tackle the abuse.
The European Data Protection Supervisor, Peter Hustinx, said that institutions were aware of the problem, that new guidelines are being drawn up to deal with the issue, and that his own office avoided using EU institutional software last year because he realised they were "inappropriate."
