Italian DPA Publishes Decision on Cookies

On 3 June, Italy’s data protection authority, the Garante, published a decision on user notice and consent requirements when an organization uses cookies as part of its online services. The decision outlines specific categories of cookies based on their intended uses and the roles played by the entities placing those cookies, and highlights different levels of notice and consent requirements for each.  The decision also offers guidelines for providing users with adequate notice through a two-layer privacy notice and outlines the consequences of failing to comply with Italy’s rules on cookies.

In a detailed summary of the decision, Marco Berliri, Massimiliano Masnada, and Marta Colonna from Hogan Lovells’ Rome office, review key takeaways that will impact organizational practices when using cookies.  For our summary of the decision, click here.
