(4) Directive 97/66/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 December 1997 concerning the processing of personal data and the protection of privacy in the telecommunications sector (5) transposed the principles of Directive 95/46/EC into specific provisions applicable to the telecommunications sector. Directive 97/66/EC should be adapted to the evolution of markets and technologies for electronic communications services in order to offer users of publicly available electronic communications services, irrespective of the technologies used, an equal level of protection of personal data and privacy. That Directive should therefore be repealed and replaced by this Directive. 1. Member States shall ensure that national legislation ensures the confidentiality of communications and related traffic data through a public communications network and publicly available electronic communications services. In particular, they shall prohibit the interception, interception, storage or any other means of interception or surveillance of communications and related traffic data by persons other than users, without the consent of the users concerned, unless this is permitted by law pursuant to Article 15(1). This paragraph shall not preclude the technical storage necessary for the transmission of a communication, without prejudice to the principle of confidentiality.
