In the EU, cookies are regulated by the ePrivacy regime. The updated ePrivacy Regulation was supposed to take effect simultaneously with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and while we recently marked the one year anniversary of the GDPR, the ePrivacy Regulation is still far from being finalized. At the same time, regulators are not waiting for ePrivacy when it comes to cookies enforcement. What is the interplay between cookies, consent and the GDPR? Are cookie walls still accepted? Does implicit consent still constitute valid cookie consent? How does GDPR apply to other online technologies such as device fingerprinting and behavioral advertising?
We look forward to seeing you!
