Dear BIIA Members,

We are delighted to bring you additional news from our affiliated industry association,  the European Association of Search & Database Publishing.

The debate on the Data Protection Regulation has intensified both at the European Parliament and in the Council.  In the EP, amendments have been released to the opinion report from MEP Marielle Gallo for the JURI Committee.  Some amendments propose a lighter line on consent, on the right to be forgotten but others call for a tough approach on profiling, on explicit consent and on enhanced data controller responsibility.
