02/09/2008 Telecoms Package Plenary Speeches

Madam President, ladies and gentlemen, we live in a world where everyone, governments, private companies and criminals tries to have the greatest and most uncontrolled access to our data electronically.

Hence, any change in the "e-privacy directive" should do what the title implies, namely ensuring the widest possible protection of our personal data and our private life.

For this reason I oppose any attempt to weaken the definition of what constitutes privacy - and therefore under the protection of the law - given European citizens. The target exceptions, specifically addresses IP, circumvent through the back door existing European legislation.

And do not think that Internet providers are allowed to judge for themselves which breaches in the security of their networks harms their users and which is not, and therefore to decide for themselves when to notify users and authorities for even flagrant omissions.

</blockquote>I respect the role and the offer of private companies, but the economic interests of large Internet companies can not dictate the laws adopted in Europe for the defence of fundamental rights of citizens.</blockquote>
