French data watchdog to start checking cookie policy compliance

France’s data protection watchdog CNIL will from 1st April begin conducting checks to ensure websites are in compliance with new guidelines on advertising trackers after the deadline it granted expired.

The new rules mean that user consent for advertising cookies must be granted by a “clear and positive act” such as clicking on an “I accept” button now ubiquitous across European websites. “Simply continuing to browse a site can no longer be considered as a valid expression of the web user’s consent,” the CNIL framework states.
