Interplay between the ePrivacy Directive and the GDPR

The European Data Protection Board (EDPB) adopted an opinion on 12 March 2019 on the interplay between the ePrivacy Directive and the General Data Protection Regulation. The opinion seeks to provide an answer to the question whether the fact that the processing of personal data triggers the material scope of both the GDPR and the ePrivacy Directive, limits the competences, tasks and powers of data protection authorities under the GDPR.
