Cookie Compliance Laws are changing in October 2020!

These Changes are Compulsory for all Irish Website Owners!

The Irish DPC’s regulatory role in relation to cookies and tracking technologies – The Data Protection Commission is the national authority responsible for the enforcement of the law on privacy, that is to say, the EU ePrivacy Directive (2002/58/EC as amended by 2009/136/EC), and the Irish ePrivacy Regulations, implemented by Statutory Instrument (S.I.) No. 336 of 2011.

This legislation is separate to but complements the General Data Protection Regulation.

All Irish organisations must comply with both laws, but the rules under the ePrivacy legislation apply first when you are considering your organisation’s use of cookies and other tracking technologies.

Regulation 5 of the ePrivacy Regulations is the relevant legislation regulating the use of cookies.

If you operate or own a website in Ireland this is an important change regarding your website tracking and how you manage cookies on your website.

All Irish website owners will need to check and update their website cookie policy and the way cookies are used and recorded.
