One year into the GDPR. What is the status when it comes to transparency and consent? Frankly, it is not looking all too good. A lot of companies have implemented cookie banners on their websites prompting the users that they use cookies for statistical purposes and to enhance the website. However, most of these “GDPR” cookie banners do not live up to the transparency and consent requirements in the GDPR!

Most cookie pop-up banners do not:

  • inform the user about which 3rd parties receive data.
  • explain what the users’ personal data are used for or;
  • for how long tracking takes place.
  • give the user the possibility to reject tracking cookies.
  • hold back cookies prior to consent.

And now, national Data Protection Authorities are issuing fines to companies who do not comply with the GDPR.
