This week on PrivacyPod: EDPB’s guidelines on the infamous cookie article! EDPB published a couple of weeks back guidelines on the technical scope of Article 5(3) of the ePrivacy Directive (also known as the golden rule… no, sorry, the cookie rule).

Hannes (!), Heikki (!!), Laura (!!!!) and Milla (????) go through the guidelines, speculating why do we get guidelines on this topic right now, considering that the legislation is not exactly fresh out of the oven. What exactly is then the technical scope of the cookie article? And how will organizations go about implementing the new guidelines, once they have been adopted after the consultation period?

Also in this episode: Hannes, Heikki and Milla share reflections on the recent IAPP Brussels conference. Don’t worry though privacy folks, we only discuss the official program - what happens in Brussels, stays in Brussels.
