Webinar: 'Bite Size Cookies-What You Need To Know'
Cookies (not the sweet, delicious biscuit that you treat yourself to) are often seen as a privacy-intrusive spying tool, whereas to others they support the provision of insightful analytics on website/app usage.
In 2019, the UK's Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) updated their guidance on Cookies and Other Technologies (e.g., Facebook Pixels) stating that cookies that were deemed to be non-essential would require consent from the user, prior to them being placed on the user's device.
Throughout 2020 a number of European Data Protection authorities issued financial penalties to organisations for failing to obtain the consent of the users before setting cookies, most notably CNIL fined Amazon €35 million and Google €100 million in December 2020.
Our Data Rockstar will discuss:
the recent cookie fines, highlighting the key areas the data protection authorities focused on, and
provide her top tips for cookie compliance.
