The European Union Data Protection Working Party has released new recommendations on email screening practices including screening for viruses, spam, and certain content. The report expresses concern with the false positive problem on spam filtering, suggesting that email providers ensure that users have control over the degree of filtering. The report’s recommendations on content screening is unequivocal: "email providers are prohibited from engaging in filtering, storage or any other kinds of interception of communications and the related traffic data for the purposes of detecting any predetermined content without the consent of the users of the services." Interesting report that would be worth contextualizing into the Canadian privacy law framework.
