Cookies consent does not escape the GDPR: CJEU issues decision in the Planet49 case
04 October 2019
The CJEU objects to tying cookie consent to the participation in an online lottery but, unlike in the opinion of the Advocate General in this case, the CJEU leaves open the question of whether users may ‘sell’ their personal data in exchange for a service (e.g. to recieve a discount) in other circumstances. Guidance on selling personal data in this context is expected from the European Data Protection Board (EDPB), which considered this issue during its plenary meeting on 10 September 2019.
