France's Council of State, the Conseil d’État, has ordered the French data protection authority, the CNIL, to cancel parts of its guidelines on cookies and other tracers. In its decision, the court explained the CNIL's ban on cookies walls was not valid, saying it "exceeded what it could legally do in the context of an act known as 'flexible law.'" Meanwhile, the court officially dismissed Google's appeal of its 50 million euro EU General Data Protection Regulation fine. (Original post is in French.)
