EDPB Publishes Updated Guidelines on Consent under the GDPR
On May 6, 2020, the European Data Protection Board (the “EDPB”) published its Guidelines 05/2020 (the “EDPB Guidelines”) on consent under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”). The EDPB Guidelines are a slightly updated version of the Article 29 Working Party’s Guidelines on consent under the GDPR (the WP29 Guidelines), which were adopted in April 2018 and endorsed by the EDPB in its first Plenary meeting.
These clarifications are in line with the decision of the Court of Justice of the European Union in the case of Planet 49 and recent EU data protection authorities’ guidelines on cookie consent.
