France Begins Enforcing Cookie Law
The CNIL, France’s data protection authority has written to 20 website owners about failures to comply with the French cookie law, according to a press release (French) published on June 30th. It is the first action taken by the regulator following initial investigations at the end of 2014.
The notices come as a result of carry out 24 spot checks, 27 online audits and 2 hearings. Even if we assume each of these actions represents different websites – which is not clear – the written notices therefore represent a nearly 40% failure rate.
These notices from the CNIL represent the first stage in its enforcement, and would include a deadline by which the sites would need to correct their failures.
