5 October 2020 marks the end of the 6 month grace period afforded by Ireland’s Data Protection Commission (the “DPC”) to controllers to review and bring their cookies practices in compliance with existing cookies law.
The DPC set a 6-month-period within which organisations were expected to review their existing tracking practices and, where necessary, update these to bring them into compliance with the law. This grace period expires on 5 October 2020, post which it is expected that the DPC will respond to non-compliance with regulatory enforcement action.
