Starting in October, France’s Data Protection Authority (the CNIL) will verify compliance with its December 2013 Recommendation on the use of cookies and tracking technologies.

The CNIL’s inspections will follow “cookies sweep day,” planned to take place the week of September 15, 2014, during which European Union Data Protection Authorities will review how Internet users are notified of the use of cookies, and how their consent to such use is obtained.

The CNIL recently announced that, from October 2014, it will verify compliance with its recommendation on cookies and tracking technologies issued on December 5, 2013. Compliance checks will be conducted through on-site and online inspections.
