The European Union’s Digital Services Act (DSA) marks a significant step towards regulating online intermediaries and enhancing online safety. The DSA introduces a range of legal obligations, such as content removal requirements and prohibitions on manipulative design and targeted online advertising based on sensitive user characteristics. Additionally, the DSA demands sweeping accountability obligations, including algorithm audits and assessments of systemic risks for the largest platforms.
However, the DSA should not be viewed in isolation but in conjunction with the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Digital Markets Act (DMA), and other regulations and directives of the EU's Data Strategy legislative package that aim to ensure comprehensive protection of fundamental rights in digital environments.
In this article, the Future of Privacy Forum (FPF) provides a detailed analysis of the interplay between the DSA and the GDPR.
