Does online surveillance violate fundamental rights of EU citizens?

An actual blog post describes about an Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) Studie. The EU intelligence Services were working often together with the NSA and conduct their own legally questionable surveillance. On 4 July 2013, the European Parliament (EP) adopted a resolution of its own initiative, demanding EU withdrawal from agreements on the exchange of financial information and flight passenger information unless the US came clean about surveillance. (for example SWIFT agreement)

“However, on 27 November 2013, the European Commission (EC) rejected the demand in a report on the programmes. Citing ”written assurances from the U.S. authorities”, EU Commissioner for Home Affairs, Cecilia Malmström, maintained that there is no proof of US wrongdoing which would warrant such a move.”
