In April 2020, the Irish Data Protection Commission (DPC) published a new guidance for the use of cookies and other tracking technologies.

The 3 most essential parts of the guidance for websites are:

  • The use of cookies requires a GDPR valid consent.
  • Pre-checked boxes for cookies or implied consent (continued use/scrolling) are no longer allowed.
  • Cookie pop-ups must give visitors the possibility to reject cookies directly in the banner.

What does all of this mean for you?

It probably means you have to either acquire a cookie banner or revise your existing one. 

Why?

Because most cookie banners actually do not work. 

They do not collect and store user consents. 

They do not hold back cookies before consent is given. 

They do not allow users to say: cookies, no thanks. 

With the new guidance, the DPC also indicates that they will increase enforcements against non-compliant businesses after the grace period ends on October 5th, 2020.
