The CNIL continues to intensify its controls regarding compliance with the regulations on cookies
In 2021, the “Commission Nationale de l’Informatique et des Libertés” (CNIL), the French Data Protection Authority, had announced that it would focus its controls on three priority areas, including compliance with the regulations on cookies.
As expected, the CNIL announced on December 14 that it had issued a formal notice to some thirty private and public organizations, from various sectors such as public education, higher education, clothing, transportation, large retailers and distance selling, reproaching them to perpetuate bad practices about cookies, especially as regards the methods of obtaining the Internet user's consent for their deposit.
These controls are in addition to the approximately sixty organizations that have already been noticed since May 2021.
