Early in 2018 we published a briefing «Top Seven Actions Companies need to take» with advice on the critical actions that businesses should take to comply with the GPDR.

At the end of 2018, we visited many Portuguese Internet websites of some large and not so large businesses to check if they complied with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the European regulation on privacy and electronic communications proposal («e-Privacy» regulation proposal).

In our review, we found several examples of unlawful practices or, at least, non-recommended practices in violation of the GDPR and potentially contravening the «e-Privacy» regulation proposal.

This briefing outlines these examples and the relevant actions to be taken at the interplay level between the GDPR and electronic privacy rules.
