The firm was delighted to host a seminar entitled "Cookies, the GDPR and the ePrivacy Regulations: Recent Developments" at our offices on Thursday 28 November 2019.
Cookies and other online identifiers are fundamental to running websites and advertising products online. The law in this area remains far from clear despite various sets of guidelines issued by European and national data protection authorities.
Laura Fannin and Ruth Prendeville discussed:
- the current rules on cookies and the new ePrivacy Regulations that are intended to replace them;
- the recent regulatory guidance and case law; and
- the steps that website operators and those who place advertising online can take to balance their legal obligations with the commercial realities of their businesses.
