The EU Cookie Banner Taskforce Key Takeaways

22 February 2023

In January 2023, the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) adopted a report on the work undertaken by the Cookie Banner Task Force.

The Task Force was established in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), with the purpose of coordinating the response to multiple complaints concerning cookie banners which were filed with several EEA supervisory authorities.

The positions presented in the report reflect the common denominator agreed by the supervisory authorities in their interpretation of the applicable provisions of the ePrivacy Directive and the GDPR.  While not constituting stand-alone recommendations or findings to obtain a greenlight from a competent authority, the Task Force’s positions reflect a minimum threshold to assess the placement and reading of cookies and subsequent processing of the data collected.

in the following guide, we have highlighted some key takeaways from the report and main cookie consent practices that the Task Force found to be in violation of applicable law.
