The European Commission has started legal action against Britain over the online advertising technology Phorm.
At the heart of the legal action by the EC is whether users have given their consent to have their data intercepted by the advertising system.
"We have been following the Phorm case for some time and have concluded that there are problems in the way the UK has implemented parts of the EU rules on the confidentiality of communications," says EC Commissioner.
