The DPC stated in its Guidance that it would allow a six month implementation period from its publication in April for data controllers to bring their products, including websites and mobile apps, into compliance, after which enforcement action will commence ie. the 6th of October 2020
The purpose of this examination was to determine data controllers’ compliance with both the GDPR and the ePrivacy Regulations. In particular, the examination sought to establish what types of cookies are placed on the browsing equipment of users of the controllers’ websites; whether users’ GDPR-compliant consent is gained in order to place these cookies, and whether the controllers provide users with the appropriate information prior to placing cookies on their browsing equipment.
