As French automated audits of cookie consent rules continue, non-compliant websites face sanctions
After checking the 1.000 websites with the highest traffic in France, and with several sanctioning procedures already launched, the French DPA CNIL (Commission nationale de l’informatique et des libertés) announced a continuation of the program in the next months. Moreover, the CNIL reminded the public that in the event of non-compliance with the rules, organisations may incur financial penalties of up to 2% of their turnover.
As they started with the 1.000 websites with the highest traffic in France, it could well be that organisations have some time to bring your website in order. Being an automated process, the CNIL could choose to bring up the pace at any time however.
