Irish DPC Publishes New Cookie Guidance

On April 6, 2020, the Irish Data Protection Commission (the “DPC”) published a report summarizing the DPC’s findings following a cookie sweep of select websites across a range of sectors, as well as a new guidance note on the use of cookies and other tracking technologies.

The DPC made it clear that they expect organizations (acting as data controllers) to comply with the current cookie law rules. Organizations have a six-month window to get in compliance with the DPC’s new cookie guidance; after that period, the DPC may take action to enforce the guidance.
