New ruling on cookie consent
9 October 2019
Most people know that cookies on websites store information. But for how long? And how many people or companies have access to this information? A new court ruling will hopefully shed some light on questions like these and the rules regarding cookies in general.
On Tuesday, October 1, 2019, the CJEU issued its ruling regarding consent requirements with respect to cookie compliance, (Planet49, C‑673/17). In summary, the court concludes that consent to the storage of information or access to information through the use of so-called cookies that are already stored in the website user’s terminal equipment is not valid when the consent is the result of a pre-checked box, regardless of whether the information in question constitutes personal data or not. The court also clarifies that a service provider must inform the website user about the duration of the cookies and whether third parties will have access to them.
