Senate approves stripped cookie law




The Senate has approved a stripped-down, simplified version of the cookie law. Which is thus final. It is still unknown when the new version of the cookie law, which needs to be asked permission for analytical cookies, will be in force.

The Lower House was in October already agreed to the relaxed legislation, but also Tuesday, the Senate approved the amendment. It is not yet known when websites no longer have to ask permission for analytical cookies.

The exception applies to cookies that do not infringe on privacy, such as cookies used for a / b testing and cookies for statistical software. For essential cookies, they may contain login information, never had to be authorized.

Last year, the government decided that websites do not get explicit permission to place cookies. If a user ignores the cookie warning and continue surfing, websites may assume that the user gives permission, the government argues. Websites disputed cookies may then, however, only if a user places a number of times on the website has clicked; many websites ignore that.
