Is the Internet breaking up? Are we moving from a free but ads-based model to a paid subscription-based one? The Noyb v. META ruling highlighted how a contractual model in which the user signs a contract to obtain a service with personalised advertising would not comply with the GDPR. Is consent (with all its limits and issues), therefore, the only possible way? And if so, given the ease with which it can now be denied, how will those services that we have heretofore thought of as free be financed? Or could contract and legitimate interest, remodelled in a different way, be a valid legal basis?
We will try to answer these questions with our guests, who have followed the story closely:
- Sebastian BECKER CASTELLARO, EDRi, Policy Advisor
- Carolina FOGLIA, EDPB Secretariat, Head of Activity for Legal Coordination
- Natascha GERLACH, CIPL, Director of Privacy & Data Policy
- Gianclaudio MALGIERI, Brussels Privacy Hub (VUB), Co-Director; Leiden University, Associate Professor
Vincenzo TIANI, Brussels Privacy Hub (VUB), Programme & Dissemination Coordinator
The event will take place on 27 March from 16:30 until 17:40. The event will be hosted on Teams. Registration is free but obligatory via this link.
