The Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 is a law in the United Kingdom that made it unlawful to, amongst other things, transmit an automated recorded message for direct marketing purposes via a telephone, without the prior consent of the subscriber. The law implements an EU directive, the Privacy and Electronic Communications Directive 2002.
The Telecommunications (Data Protection and Privacy) Regulations 1999(a) and the Telecommunications (Data Protection and Privacy) (Amendment) Regulations 2000(b) are hereby revoked.
Nothing in these Regulations shall relieve a person of his obligations under the Data Protection Act 1998 in relation to the processing of personal data.
The Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR) sit alongside the Data Protection Act and the UK GDPR. They give people specific privacy rights in relation to electronic communications.
There are specific rules on:
- marketing calls, emails, texts and faxes;
- cookies (and similar technologies);
- keeping communications services secure; and
- customer privacy as regards traffic and location data, itemised billing, line identification, and directory listings.
