In July 2019, the U.K. Information Commissioner’s Office and France’s data protection authority, the CNIL, published new guidance on the use of cookies. Though there are many similarities among both sets of guidance, there are differences. To help sort out the similarities and differences, Bird & Bird Partners Gabriel Voisin and Ruth Boardman, along with Bird & Bird Trainee Solicitor Clara Clark Nevola, have put together an easy-to-read chart. Issues in the table include whether the rules only apply to cookies and touch upon topics such as implied consent, territorial scope, grace period and whether cookie walls are allowed.
