In 2017, the European Commission published the ePrivacy Directive.

Aimed at updating the current rules on electronic communications and making them consistent with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) the Draft Regulation which is directly effective includes relevant changes in relation to the scope of application of the ePrivacy Directive, cookies provisions and penalties.

As a result of the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018), the current law, the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulation 2003 (PECR 2003) must also be interpreted in a manner consistent with the DPA 2018 and the GDPR, which is often an under analysed area when it comes to cookies compliance.

This live session will be highly practical, with a range of contemporary examples discussed across various sectors, considering best practice observations as well as interactive case studies. It is ideally suited for in-house counsel, marketing professionals, external lawyers and business owners.
