Hand Out of the Cookie Jar: CJEU Issues Long-Awaited Decision on Cookies

By Cameron Abbott and Max Evans

Earlier this month, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) issued a long-awaited decision with respect to the requirements necessary for entities to satisfy in order to attain the valid consent of a user to the use of cookies to track and analyse his or her personal information.

In particular, the CJEU provided a useful outline on the information required to be provided to data subjects prior to consent being given and the behaviours sufficient to constitute consent to the use of cookies.

A comprehensive analysis of this critical case is provided by our colleagues in Volume 1 of The Privacist available on the K&L Gates Hub.
