Today, October 1, the CNIL published its latest recommendations on the use of cookies and associated tracking technologies. These recommendations are the finalised version of those released early this year. While the CNIL now continues its enforcement of the previous cookie recommendations, starting April 2021, it will begin enforcing against non-compliant organisations under its new, revised guidance. 

The CNIL highlighted the following principles and recommendations: 

  • Continued browsing with the cookie banner can no longer be considered as a valid form of user’s consent and consent validity requires a clear positive action  
  • “Reject All” button is recommended to be on the cookie banner’s first layer 
  • Each cookie purpose must be highlighted prominently on the first layer of the cookie banner  
  • Users should always have easy access to manage their cookie preferences and withdraw their consent at any time, and companies could implement this through a static cookie icon as a best practice 
  • Users should have access to an up-to-date and structured list of third parties 
  • Organisations that drop the cookie are also responsible for collecting a valid proof of consent – even towards third parties 
  • Some trackers can be exempt from consent, including authentication cookies, audience measurement cookies, or cookies used to limit the access to free content on a website
