The Dutch data protection authority, the Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens, announced cookie walls are not compliant with the EU General Data Protection Regulation, TechCrunch reports. The AP issued guidance on the topic after it received complaints from internet users who were not allowed to go on a website after they refused to accept tracking cookies. The DPA said it has informed a number of the organizations in the complaints to stop the practice. “Cookie walls are non-compliant with the principles of consent of the GDPR,” an AP spokesperson said. “Which means that any party with a cookie wall on their website has to be compliant ASAP, whether or not we will check that in a couple of months, which we certainly will do.”
