EU Cookie Sweep: Are You Compliant?


You may have heard that European Data Protection Authorities will conduct a “Cookies Sweep” from September 15-19 to assess current compliance levels. The CNIL will then conduct further inspections in October using new powers, which came into effect earlier this year.

With the potential of increased enforcement and growing consumer privacy expectations, companies must make sure they are compliant in order to avoid negative media coverage and damage to their brand.

TRUSTe’s Saira Nayak will join Promontory’s Simon McDougall, Fieldfisher’s Oliver Proust and experts from CNIL in a two-part webinar series to present tips and best practices for staying cookie compliant and to win the trust of European customers.

Register now for the first session, EU Cookie Directive: Key Steps to Compliance, to gain information on the following:

  • Amendments to the EU Cookie Directive and current compliance requirements across the EU
  • Insight into what is required to comply with EU cookie guidelines from a technical/IT perspective
  • Examples of how leading brands across Europe have implemented solutions to comply with EU cookie guidelines

The second and final session of the series, EU Cookie Inspections: Are You Ready?  will take place on September 4th.
