In April 2020 the Data Protection Commission (DPC), published a new Guidance Note on cookies and other tracking technologies arising from the outcome of its report on the use of such technologies which was compiled following a sweep conducted at the end of 2019. The DPC is concerned to ensure that controllers are aware of the requirements set out in the applicable legislation and in the guidance note, and controllers now have two months to bring themselves into compliance. 

What you will learn

In this 1 hour webinar, representaives from the DPC will explore their recent report and guidance note. They will also set out very clearly what the DPC expect to be in place by the 5 October 2020 deadline in respect of cookies and apps and similar technologies and their enforcement strategy.

Following on from their presentation Colm MacCarvill, from Squarespace will share some practical insights and advice on what controllers need to have in place over the next two months to ensure they are compliant.
