Both the UK’s ICO and France’s CNIL have issued updated guidance on cookies. You would have thought that this is all old stuff, but the ICO’s paper comes hot on its Adtech paper where it stated that the UK industry does not understand the rules around cookies, nor the interrelationship between cookies and the GDPR. In this podcast, we take a look at the eprivacy directive and see to what extent it makes sense and can be reconciled with the GDPR. There are some surprises as it turns out that the CNIL has invented a new legal type of cookie. This podcast is essential listening for anyone who wants to use cookies, whether first party or third party.
