France: CNIL to begin cookies enforcement in October

By Carol AF Umhoefer, Jeanne Dauzier and Mathilde Hallé

Starting in October, France’s Data Protection Authority (CNIL) will verify compliance with its December 2013 recommendation on the use of cookies and tracking technologies.

The CNIL’s inspections will follow ‘cookies sweep day’, which is planned to take place the week of 15 September 2014, during which EU data protection authorities will review how internet users are notified of the use of cookies and how their consent to such use is obtained.

The CNIL recently announced that, as from October 2014, it will verify compliance with its recommendation on cookies and tracking technologies issued on 5 December 2013. Compliance checks will be conducted through on-site and online inspections
