Article 29 Working Party requests functionality for automatic expiration of preferences/exceptions.


With regard to some parallel initiatives, such as notice-and-choice programs, the Working Party acknowledges that they can function as supporting measures to remind users that they can withdraw their tracking preference at any time. But the Draft TPE Specification currently lacks a building block that ensures the automatic expiration of a tracking preference. Under European data protection law, personal data must be adequate and accurate, and stored no longer than necessary. In order to comply with these requirements, the introduction of an automatic expiration feature is necessary to allow users to exercise effective control. Therefore, the Working Party recommends adding this requirement to the building blocks.
