The CNIL fines two bigtech for the cookies compliance

Published on: December 11, 2020

The CNIL – Commission Nationale de l’Informatique et des Libertés has issued two significant fines (100 million and 35 million) to two bigtech corps.

The first corporation is being challenged for:

  • the installation of non-essential cookies without the user’s prior consent;
  • the lack of information in the banner and the difficulty of finding it even by clicking on the read more button;
  • even if consent is denied, some advertising cookies remain active.
    The second corporation is being challenged for:
  • the installation of non-essential cookies without the user’s prior consent;
  • an overly generic banner without sufficient information on the use of cookies and their effects on users.

Despite some improvements introduced on both sites, a number of violations still persist, which if not resolved will lead to an additional fine of €100,000 per day.
