The Privacy Commission also confirmed that Telenet can maintain its current approach (four levels clearly explained to the customer with the option to change at any time), even after May 2018 when the European General Data Protection Legislation takes effect. However, all customers must receive a clear and transparent reminder about their existing privacy settings prior to that date. New Telenet customers, joining after May 2018, will be categorized as standard in level 2 ‘direct’ and will not automatically receive personalised TV advertising.
Telenet would like to emphasize that it will always comply with current privacy legislation. Telenet will implement the required amendments and clarifications as soon as possible and again notify all its customers in person accordingly.
